Customer reviews

As of October 2020, LendingTree has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 based on nearly 8,500 reviews on Trustpilot. Borrowers love the simplicity and convenience of finding a loan through this platform. All that’s required is completing a single online form, after which you are presented with multiple lenders and loan offers, giving you control over the home loan process. On the other hand, LendingTree is only rated 2.28 out of 5 based on 91 reviews on the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) website. The most common complaint in LendingTree reviews is the volume of phone calls and emails customers later receive from potential lenders. This is because LendingTree shares your contact information with a variety of third-party loan providers after you complete the online application, and some of these lenders may contact you more often than you’d like.
Quicken Loans is accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and as of November 2020 has 3.67 stars out of 5 based on 1,930 customer reviews. On Trustpilot, the lender has 4.4 out of 5 stars with 16,814 customer reviews. Most reviews praise the attentive, personalized service they receive from its mortgage officers. Even when dealing with multiple representatives, borrowers report a keen attention to detail. Borrowers liked using Quicken Loan’s MyQL to track the progress of their loan. However, some complaints point to hard credit inquiries without authorization during the application process. There are also reports that loan advisors were aggressive when trying to close the loan.
