With so many mortgage companies out there, how does one do research on them to make sure they are not known for ripping people off or take advantage of them? I am located in the Bay Area, California. Right now, I am leaning towards going with my bank (Wells Fargo) however I cam wondering if I should also look into a mortgage company. Although my gut feeling is that I should, I don't want to go with a bad one. Is there an Anandtech.com or resellerratings.com type of website for mortgage companies? Thanks in advance.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use LendingTree.com
search for a history of my posts... I lost a 100+ acre farm because of the fvcktards I had to choose from who didn't have a clue what they were doing (didn't find that out until it was too late.)

Lendingtree is just a company that gathers many mortgage banks to bid on a loan for you. So i guess you went with a bad bank and they Fu@ked U.
