David Sanchez recommends Jeffrey Cruz

Regional Customs Manager

Jeff and his team made things happen! They provided follow up with high sense of urgency and even with a major change in my type of loan they still were able to make the deadline.

I am sincerely thankful.

I went through many companies that said they could help but none followed through, but Amerifirst actually did with great service in a short time as well. Thanks.


Jacob Thomas recommends John Zurbruegg

EVP Sales North America

I have worked with John on several loans and will continue to do so. His team and himself are always a pleasure to work with and are upfront and honest. I have referred friends and family and would only do so knowing they are in good hands. I travel a ton for a work and they were able to schedule everything around my availability which takes a lot of stress off my shoulders. So in short i would highly recommend John and thank him for his hard work.

Stephanie Cervantes recommends John Zurbruegg

John and Ariana at Amerifirst were amazing. They were on top of everything and stayed in contact through the whole process. If it wasn't for them my husband and I wouldn't have gotten our dream of becoming homeowners.

Anonymous recommends Ron W. Kelleher - The Kelleher Team

Kristopher Leathers was great! He called me from the start and explained what the process was going to be and answered all of my questions. He really made the experience of buying a home easy. His team worked together and helped me to the fullest.

Vicki Jonas recommends Eric Wright

The refi process was much smoother than I anticipated and did not require that I go to any office, so no time off work was required.

I have worked with Sada on our last 2 mortgages and have nothing but praise for her and the way she handled the process. Mortgages are lots of paperwork and headache and she made the process seamless. I recommend her to all my family and friends because i know she will get the job done and on time!

Nick Caranci recommends Sada Kalasho

Broker Associate

I use Sada as my premier lender for my real estate clients. At our last closing, if it wasn't for Sada and her team, the deal would have fallen apart at the closing table with no fault to her or her company. They made the deal HAPPEN!! Couldn't be more satisfied with the hard work we received!!

Ryan Hiatt recommends Sada Kalasho

Medical Sales Representative

Sada was able to work quickly with me once I decided I wanted to move forward in buying a house. It started with her quick response and action to get me pre-approved. I was able to get a pre-approval letter within the same day once I got her all the documentation she needed to establish my income and maximum loan approval.

Once I had that I went and looked for houses. I was lucky enough to settle on the first house that I saw. The total time from deciding I wanted to make an offer until closing was less than 30 days! This was beneficial because the seller of the house was trying to get everything closed before he moved out of the state. Her professionalism, attentiveness, and timeliness helped everything run very smooth. I would recommend her to anyone in the market that is looking for a home loan because not only was she very responsive, but she gave me multiple options to choose from for my loan and I was able to pick the best fit for myself.

Tower Tech

To who it may concern,
During my experience with Garrett Bowbly and his team they did everything possible to keep me in the loop. Being inexperienced in home buying i had many questions that were thoroughly explained. They found a way to get me the loan i needed (even after a few issues on my end) so i could get into my house in a timely. I would recommend Garrett and his team to anyone!

Tricia Phillips recommends Rob Davis


Rob was really great to work with. Being a first time home buyer, in the beginning I had a lot of questions, and Rob was always available to answer them. He ensured that I always had updated information throughout the entire process and really did make the process of buying a home a little less stressful. Rob is clearly very passionate about his work and based on my experience with him, he does everything he can to make buying a home as easy as possible. I would recommend Rob to all my family and friends. A big thank you to Rob for helping make my dream of becoming a homeowner come true!

Stephan Bertz recommends Gary Clouse

When one looks to finance or refinance a home in the San Francisco Bay Area, Family Funding in Benicia is the best choice. Family Funding’s response time to requests is less than 24 hours, processing the papers is less than 45 days, financing options are laid out clearly, financing is safe and tax- efficient. This compares Family Funding to Bay Area Fortune 500 agencies whose response times are more than two weeks, processing takes up to 18 months, and financing options are curbed by the agency product line.
Family Funding is the best for families and small businesses who wish to explore safe home / business owner financing and who liked to be served well.

Ruth Taylor recommends Gary Clouse

The first part of a new year gives me the opportunity to write and thank you for introducing me to, and following me through, the Reverse Mortgage program.
It has really been a life-saver.
This past year-and-a-half I've been able to redecorate my house, get a newer car, take a couple of short trips and actually see four figures in my bank account. Although I was previously not in debt, other than my mortgage, I had to watch every penny and lived on a pretty close budget.
The Reverse Mortgage has changed all that. I now have the means to do what I please and I love every minute of it.
Thanks to you.

Isaiah Gilkey recommends Gary Clouse

This letter is to say thanks for the reverse mortgage you did for my father-in-law.
After speaking with you and explaining his situation, this was definitely the best program for him.
It was very land of you to go out of your way to go to his home and sit with him to make sure that he understood every step of the process. Although it was a very time consuming process for him, you made it easier.
The entire Gillcey family appreciates your time, concern and kindness and I will gladly recommend your services in the future to anyone else in need of a reverse mortgage.
