Justin Vaught recommends Paul Gallegos


Paul and his team are true mortgage professionals. Paul helped us buy a couple of homes in Arizona over the last several years, and the process is always seamless. I chose Paul and his team to help with my loan because of their competitive rates and fees, and because I know the team will be on top of the details from start to finish. Highly recommend!

Melanie Bartnek recommends Rebecca Susanne Riley St. Thomas

Not only did Rebecca work extremely hard for me and under a time constraint, she is the nicest and sweetest person! Rebecca genuinely cares about her clients and she was a great support to me when buying my first home. She truly went above and beyond and I could not have asked for a better experience. She was always there for me, answered any questions I had, and put my mind at ease. I highly recommend her!

Nedim Drljevic recommends Aladin Sabic

Home Owner

Mr. Sabic helped us in this process with his huge experience, knowledge and confidence. Getting the loan was smooth and simple. He anticipated all possible situations, informing us about it and instructing us what documents to prepare for all steps. We had a short time for closing given by the seller. Mr. Sabic helped us explaining what was required in different steps, as well as advising us what comes next in order to get ready and speed up the procedures. He was available almost 24hrs by e-mail and his phone to assist if somethin was not clear to us. He made our dream home purchase simple and enjoying. We recommend his services to all folks that would like to buy home with no stress.

Jandy Baca recommends Tara Haller

Maricopa County Early Headstart Teacher

Tara was the greatest! The first time we spoke it felt like we'd known each other for years. She helped simplify things along the way, made connecting the pieces so easy and most importantly she encouraged my husband and I to stick through the buying process and now we're home owners! Tara answered every text, email and call with an open, understanding mind. I encourage anyone, ready to buy, to call upon her to get the job done!

Terrence Watkins recommends Darik Tolnay


Darik and his team did a great job through the lending and home closing process. They were fantastic throughout the whole process and they communicated with me very well through the course of the partnership. Their knowledge and experience in the Denver market made it easy to trust them with certain tough decisions, and I am very thankful for that since we closed on a house within 6 weeks!

Gina Donnelly recommends Tara Bianco Krieg

Tara and her team at Amerifirst were wonderful to work with. They explained the entire process in a way that was clear and concise and they kept me informed every step of the way. The level of communication was above and beyond that of other lenders I have had experience with. They worked hard to get my loan processed and approved in a very timely manner so that my closing could take place on time. I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Tara and her team to my family, friends, and coworkers.

Paul made the process of funding the purchase of our new home so easy. He was professional and friendly through out the entire process.

Charles lentz recommends Paul Paliscak

U.S. Marine retired

Paul was a super professional gentalman to work with. Dispite my whining about sending him documents, Paul was very patient with me and always right on top of things that needed attention. One thing that stood out most importantly was great communication with me, always calling and on top of his game. When it came time to submit my VA loan to underwriting Paul had all his ducks in a row, all required docs completed properly. My loan was submitted and approved within days thanks to this rock star Loan officer of home loan. I recommend this guy to get the job done right the first time, experience is everything

Tony Scardina recommends Ray Strahl

Assistant Vice President

I have known Ray Strahl personally and have been on and served with him in many events. Ray along with his increasable team at AmeriFirst are the best of the best! Ray is always giving 110% at everything he does. Ray is a true leader and has done so much to give back and help out our community not just in Real estate but all aspects of life. He has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for not only our Real Estate community, affiliates but for Military and Law enforcement groups around the state as well.
From a mortgage aspect I know that he has so many programs that can help you get that home of your dreams it will blow you away! With over 45 years of industry knowledge that is not a lending program he is not aware of! He is always telling me of a new program that can help someone get into that home that they have been working to buy. I would highly recommend him for any and all of your Mortgage needs.

By the way, if you a Veteran of the Military let him know he would love to talk to you about his career as a Chopper Pilot in Vietnam. Some of the stories are increasable to say the least.
