Best way to shop for lenders?

I am planning to buy a house. With so many small and large lenders available, I am kind of overwhelmed.

If I do a comparison using “Bankrate.com” as an example, I get a lot of competitive offers. But how do I know which one is real?
I hear that some lenders will pull your leg with an attractive rate, but they will then hit you with points and fees at the signing day (even after providing a GFE early on)!

How do I find a reliable lender, with competitive rates?

Thanks
