Why should I use GetSmart?

How does it work?
Fill out one simple form and we'll have up to four lenders contact you. Based on the information you submit in our form (loan amount, property state, estimated credit grade, etc.) we match you with lenders that are looking for customers just like you.

No, GetSmart does not charge a fee for matching you with the lenders on our network. The lenders pay us a fee for referring you, but that fee is never passed on.

GetSmart works with a network of more than 200 lenders-large and small lenders that provide both national and local coverage. We spend a lot of time recruiting and managing our lender network so we have the best partners to meet your needs.

What if I don't get matched with any lenders?
If we are not able to match you based on the information you submitted, we encourage you to resubmit at a later date. We are constantly adding new lenders to our network in an effort to offer a solution for every borrower.

Am I obligated to work with the lenders I am matched with?
No, you are under no obligation to close your loan with any of the lenders we match you with. But we think you'll get a great deal (and fast) so we hope you will.
