Nope, and about 6.  Different lenders for different products in my market. We have leaseholds and only some lenders do each type.

Our team gives 3 choices to the buyer.  For the sake of the buyer getting a "choice" and also if they maybe cannot reach one at a convenient time for them.

There is a list that I have. All clients have different needs and I narrow it down fom there. I always recommend at least 3 and ask first if they have someone at their bank or credit union.

I work with multiple lenders and will refer buyer to one, along with Wells and Chase, as their specific needs dictate.

I have an FHA go to.

I have a portfolio go to.

I have a low cap go to.

I have a bad credit go to.

I have a foreign buyer go to.

I have a private money go to.

I don't like to 'guess' regarding the lenders to who I refer those who trust me, I need to be sure.

Mortgage lenders are not all the same. I have always preferred to have several favorite loan officers.

For example, some loan officers are not familiar with FHA 203(k) financing and some do not handle reverse mortgages.

We never refer clients to a single souce for anything. Too much exposure to liability. Always provide at least 2, preferably 3 or more references.
