Why You Should Trust Us
Our reviews are always impartial. No one can influence which products we review, the way we present them to you, or the ratings they receive. The data we collect and our editorial expertise determine the list of products you see in our round-ups and the reviews you read—that’s it.
While we are unable to consider every possible product available to you, our team works hard to review a thorough sampling of products on the market, constantly presenting new and awesome products.
When we review a product—whether that’s a bank account, a loan company, a credit card or insurance —you’re the first thing we consider, does this product make your life better? How much will it cost you? Is it easy to understand? The answers to these questions drive our recommendations.
We understand that our opinions are our own. What we say about a particular product is not reviewed or approved by any partner we work with. To put it humbly, we recommend products we would use ourselves.
Our team has 20 years of experience in the real estate, lending and business industries with 10 years researching and writing about all things personal finance. We’re consumers, too, so we know how important it is to have trustworthy resources when making decisions. That’s why we’re steadfast to getting the facts right and providing clear explanations of how things work.
We’re obsessed with staying on top of the latest developments in the personal finance world and keeping you up to speed on them, too. When we’re deciding what to review or rounding up the best offers out there, we rigorously research the market, what people are looking for, and what makes an outstanding product.
We spend weeks — sometimes months — collecting all this information. Then, using that data and our expertise, we set clear, consistent evaluation criteria for each product we review.
We heavily choose the lenders/brokers that the people have publicly chosen via Google reviews, and various social signals.
But once we publish an article, we don’t forget about it. Our team is relentless when it comes to keeping our recommendations fresh, accurate, and helpful. Even so, we encourage you to carefully read the fine print before buying or applying for any product.
Yes, making the right financial decision often takes hours of diligent research. But we love doing it, which means you don’t have to.
It’s simple: We’re here to help you make smart financial decisions. We know how important of a decision it is to choose the right lender or mortgage, we present the best in class and we give the people the opportunity to elect or “add-in” their favorite professional.

We give you the ability the use your vote and support the Lender or Mortgage Broker they believe is the Top 50 Mortgage Broker so we can keep this roundup current and a resource to future readers.
