Not to be rude, but BofA has one of the lowest consumer satisfaction ratings in the industry and even the Feds have fined them for 'fraudulent ' business practices in their mortgage division.
And Lending Tree is NOT an online lender. They are not a lender at all. They are an online lead generation servce. They sell the leads to mortgage brokers and other lenders, who pay dearly for those leads and (understandably) try to pass that cost onto the client.
Carteret filed bankruptcy in 2008.
I've never heard of Abba, but I'll bet they are a fairly small broker. (not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that.)
