If I'm interpreting the response correctly ... laughter ...

then, as a buyer, you have the freedom to select others to favor with your business.

Aggressively seek to place your loan and closing with others who value your business relationship. "shop" your loan requirements with other lenders. Find another title company that can close the deal and do the doc's. If you're anywhere close to a city, they'll be more than several. Get online and see what's available in your area; lenders come in all forms and could be a bank, credit union, mortgage broker, direct to you mortgage company, etc. You've got enough equity going into your property that most lenders should be in a "comfort zone" re a possibe default. A good lender will have a working relationship with a title company, too.

Don't let your realtors steer you into business dealings where you're about to be abused. Keep in mind there's a potential "fee" going right back to the realtor for bringing in your business to a lender which may not be in your best interests. Everybody's making enough money off of you that you don't have to pay them "extra" just to do business.

There are other businesses out there that value you now and have a long view about the day that you are successful and will move up in your housing and other financial requirements. They know that you'll remember them when the time comes. That's how you build a loyal customer base ....
