Ron and his team are amazing! I have used AmeriFirst for two loans and both times Ron and his team were helpful, prompt and efficient. It's not a fun process but working with this group of people made it a lot easier!! Anytime anyone asks me I recommend Ron and AmeriFirst. Thanks to all of you!!

We also offer credit services to people that have past blemishes on their credit report. We specialize in Conventional, FHA, Jumbo, and VA products. Our primary goals include finding the best loan program for home buyers and getting to the closing table quickly and efficiently. But, Iโ€™m also always up for a cup of coffee, a round of golf or to chat about sports.

I had a good experience working with the Amerifirst Team. They were very helpful and answered all the questions that I had, which was a lot! Costumer service was great and I say that because I know that I was kind of difficult for them and they never once gave me the impression of them getting frustrated. I could tell they wanted me to be happy with the loan and they did everything they could to make that happen! I would say they are very good at what they do! I cant even count how many times I called Kris and every time we spoke on the phone he was nothing but respectful. He answered all my questions with no judgment of how un intelligent some may have been. I had a great first home buying experience working with this team!

Ron and Kristopher were amazing! Kristopher spent so much time answering all my (some ridiculous) questions. He always did it quickly and took the time to explain things in simple terms. They found so many deals and programs for us that our closing costs were next to nothing...and I mean that literally!
I will recommend Ron and Kristopher with AmeriFirst over and over again!

Good Day,
Ron Kelleher the Branch Manager and Kristopher Leathers with AmeriFirst Financial was our choice for home our home mortgage. Starting in 2017 Ron and his team assisted us purchasing our new home in Prescott Valley AZ. He worked with us over the next year while our home was being built, and never tired of my constant questions. He diligently listened to all my concerns and answered quickly and efficiently. He explained all of our options clearly, precisely and with plain language. He and his team follow up with us throughout the entire process and quickly closed our loan when the home was complete. If you are in the market for a home loan, or any other financial needs, call Ron and his team with AmeriFirst Financial and have the peace of mind that you are working with a true professional.

I would recommend Ron and Kristopher along with the Kelleher team for any mortgage needs. Kristopher is knowledgeable, professional, communicates throughout the course , and has a pleasant sense of humor. The team is friendly, kind, attentive to the task at hand,and swift processing from start to finish of my refinancing mortgage. This can be a very stressful process; however it was an easygoing experience.

Ron and his team are amazing and awesome to work with. They did a great job communicating what was going on during the process of the loan. My loan was rocky to began with, I didn't have the best credit. They had their credit service analyze my report. I followed their instructions and in a 3 months process I was in my home for Christmas. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I was delighted by the friendly, professional service I received from the Kelleher Team during my recent home loan application process! I've gone through the loan process several times before when buying homes but their level of service is new and refreshing! The speed at which Kristopher processed my loan and his great communication with me, the title company, and the realtors really sets the Kelleher Team apart! They came highly recommended and I can verify that they're every bit as good as I was told!

I come to Ron for all my mortgage needs. When dealing with Ron I am certain I will be given every option available and he will work with me to reach my goals. When working with Ron, his right hand man Kris is top notch as well. While meeting with Ron, Kris was able to run numbers very quickly and gave me rough estimates on all 3 of my options. I will continue to use Ron and Kris and will always recommend them to all my friends and clients.

This team did a great job at completing my mortgage. I had special circumstances in which I only had 20 days to close and this team came thru in UNDER 20 days. Kris Leathers worked especially hard on this deal as if it was his own. He was very quick to get everything needed and was even responsive after hours. In my opinion he went above and beyond just to get my loan completed. Thank you so much to the entire team who made this happen for me! Great Job!!

I worked closely with Kristopher Leathers throughout the home-loan process. He responded quickly and pleasantly, is quite knowledgeable, and made the process a breeze for me. This is the first time I purchased a home on my own, so his support meant so much to me. Kudos, Kris, you're the best!
