PNC isn't bad. Not great, not awful. You can also try APGFCU and MECU.

 

My gold standard in VA lending in this area is NFCU. Assuming you qualify for membership, in my experience (YMMV) they are easy to work with.

FICO 04 scores: 809 (EQ) 812 (EX) 818 (TU)

Amex Platinum NPSL - Citi HHonors Sig. $58k - BMW Ultimate $40k
Chase Sapphire Preferred $62k - Merrill Lynch + Signature $41k - USAA Rate Advantage $28k
NFCU Flagship Signature $50k - USAA Cash Rewards AMEX $28k
Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage Signature $31k - Chase Amtrak Rewards World MC $41k

NFCU just opened a Glen Burnie Branch.Re: VA LENDERS IN BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD AREA

NFCU just opened a branch in Glen Burnie.  The problem may be that their membership scope includes active duty, reserve, DOD civilian, and retired or disbled (pension eligible) veterans.  A veteran with an honorable discharge but no pension isn't eligible unless through family members.

 

USAA accepts any veteran with an honorable discharge, and is also a VA lender (I think).

 

Both have excellent customer service.

Great! Yes I have an account with Navy Federal. They were first on my list but I wanted more lenders to compare, but its good to know they have excellent customer service.

Thanks for the feedback!

Anytime.

 

I would also suggest going to the branch in Annapolis (the one on Jennifer Road). AFAIK it's the only one in MD that has actual loan officers in house. That's where we went to handle our mortgages and it was effortless.
