Refi Takes Forever And A Day

Incredibly slow turnaround.  They never get back to you.  I have to do all the follow up. What should have been simple takes them twice as long as the local credit union.  I thought because I financed with them the first time that a refi would be simpler to stay with them.... wrong.  It was like starting from scratch and they asked me to provide paperwork that they already had.
