Karen Jones is amazing. She is very knowledgeable and professional of what she is doing. I can say that she is a miracle worker ! Way ? Another lender told me that I'm not qualify for a loan even with 25% down , a few months later I bought my house with 10 % down ...with Karen's help of course.
But not only that. Karen will always give you advise as a professional, what is best for you.
I'm so glad I met you ! It was pleasure working with you !
Thanks Karen

Karen helped the buyer through the loan process on a home where I represented the seller. The communication with Karen was incredible and she delivered everything she promised she would by the time promised. We closed on time and had absolutely no problems. I was very impressed with Karen!

Karen Jones and her team took care of me the exact way I would want to be taken care of. Every question was treated as important and every answer came within minutes. This is a grade A team of people that do everything they can to make sure you're aware of what's going on every step of the way and make sure that you have the answers you need when you need them. I would highly recommend this team for your home buying experience.

Karen and her team are awesome and very professional. I felt that she cared for my family home loan needs as if she was personally applying for the loan herself. Karen and her team was prompt with returning and answering all of my questions and able to get us pre-approved in a matter of several days.

She always made sure to touch base with us making sure we understood the process and that they had not forgot about us. I would highly recommend Karen and her Team.

I want to start off by saying how grateful my husband and I are of Karen. Not only did owning our own home become a reality, we also learned so much throughout the process.

My husband and I put off attempting to buy a home due to fear of being rejected. I was sure due to a messy divorce several years ago and what it did to my credit, it would not be something that we would accomplish for many years. For my husband, he had some debt from school loans. But, we thought we would give it a shot. At least this would give us an idea of when we could accomplish this goal. In our minds, it would be 20 years down the road. When we met Karen, I instantly felt a sense of warmth. She is very kind and has a positive attitude that is almost infectious (I walked in very negative).

When we started the process, Karen did not once talk to us as if we didn't matter, or make us feel ashamed about our past situations. Let's be real, there are folks out there that would see our situation on paper and not give us the time of day. I have actually experienced this many times in my life. Although it did take some work, she was extremely patient with us. I got overwhelmed, anxious, but every time I started to feel like giving up, there would be Karen, sending us an email, or making a phone call. I can tell you that it is ONLY because of Karen that we did not give up, and ONLY because of Karen (and her great team) that we now own a beautiful home, a home that we have dreamed of for most of our lives.

I have never experienced working with a professional like Karen. She took us under her wing, and honestly, made us feel so unique and special, as if we were the only ones that mattered in those moments. I know this is Karen's job, however, it at not one time felt like she was doing this because she had to. Karen will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we know without a doubt, it is her we will go to for any future needs. I'm willing to bet, that if anything comes up such as better interest rates, Karen will contact us before we contact her, not because she has to, but because she wants to.

If you are someone that doesn't think owning a home for you is a reality, I encourage you to talk to Karen. If it can happen, she is the one that will make it happen. If you need your hand held through the process, she will hold your hand.

Karen Jones, we are so thankful you came into our lives, and we are forever in your debt!!

i needed to consolidate a first and a second mortgage
My neighbor who is a realtor suggested I call Karen for help. She said I would get great help and believe me Karen was there every step of the way. Karen and her assistant Paige made the process easy and fast. They were available always. They treated me as a friend.

What a wonderful journey working with Karen Jones and Paige Thompson, Mortgage Loan Officer. I was always up to date each step of the way along with my clients. These ladies were so supportive to me through the process and I knew my clients were in the best hands. Because of AmeriFirst's program Protect your Transaction, my clients beat out two other offers because my clients had PYT, that was the deciding factor for the seller. WooHoo! Thanks Karen and Paige

I was shopping for mortgages and went with an online lender. I had a very complicated situation. The seller wanted to close a week before the sale of my current home, which meant I would have to qualify to carry both mortgages (new and current). The owner had a previous offer pulled out the day of closing so the seller place a contingency if we couldn't close within 30 days then I would have to forfeit 3,000 in earnest money.

I called the online lender to see if I would be able to close within 30 days and qualify for a mortgage even though I would have to carry two mortgages for a week. I didn’t' hear back from them all day long. I needed an immediate response before I accepted the counter offer so I wouldn't be out 3,000 dollars.

I was getting nervous. So, I started to look for other options. My real estate agent recommended Karen. The saying goes, you get what you pay for. Karen is worth every penny. I called her up and within 15 mins I was approved for the loan. She even told me I was approved to carry two mortgages, and assured me I would close within 30 days.

The loan process itself was a very easy with the support from Karen and her team. She would answer my emails and phone calls within seconds and not days. I'm glad I went with Karen instead of the online lender. The service was top-notch! I would highly recommend Karen and her team if you need a mortgage. She's the best in town!

Karen was fantastic! It was a much smoother process working with Karen. She creates a plan just for you and your needs and then executes it flawlessly. Very knowledgeable, professional with a great personal touch. I highly recommend Karen and her team!

Wow! Karen Jones is the consummate mortgage broker professional! She is not only extraordinarily qualified to guide potential buyers through the mortgage application process resulting in a closed escrow and satisfied mortgagee.

Karen listens to the needs of her clients and cares about providing her clients the best product for their personal situation. If one of Karen's mortgage products is the best for her client, that is the product she will recommend. If Karen, through her decades of banking experience and executive-level training, believes the client can be better served through a different source, Karen does not hesitate to refer her client in that direction.

Karen is NOT about obtaining a mortgage for her clients. Karen IS about guiding her clients in the direction of the best financial decision for them even though is may not result in a "mortgage sale" for her.

Karen will forever be my resource for new mortgage assistance.

I enthusiastically and highly recommend Karen Jones for all of your mortgage needs!

Karen Jones is one of the best lenders I've ever worked with. Along with her team, she makes the process easier for the client and keeps me informed all the way through to closing the transaction, and follow up...She is always available if I have questions, or if my client does. It's important to have a lender you can count on to get the deal done!

Karen was very competent and proficient during the loan process. She was able to provide information to the seller that put the seller at ease and accomplished our goal of being the number one choice buyer (and we were the long shot). Karen's communication skills are top level and worked with us nearly daily to ensure to loan application was complete and concise. I would give Karen a 5-star rating.

I was very impressed with Karen and her team. Their ability to keep us informed of the status of the loan throughout the transaction was wonderful. Often times I received updates prior to my request for one which is rare with lenders. I would definately recommend Karen and her team to buyers.

Karen was super helpful in our home buying process. She stuck with us through multiple attempts, until we found the perfect home. We had not purchased a home in 10 years (pre-2008), and with all the changes in the mortgage industry, she happily spent time explaining the new steps in the process. Her experience really helped when it mattered!

I highly recommend Karen and Paige to assist you with your mortgage. It's such an important process, and experience counts.

Recently Karen assisted me in finding a morgage to purchase a home under unusual circumstances. Karen returned my call within minutes of my first message. She was very responsive and clear in all our exchanges. Karen took the time to ensure I truly understood everything that was going on, which is a lot on a first time home purchase. Karen listen's to understand not to respond. She hears truely what is being said. I cannot say enough about how quickly she worked for me and it made me feel like I was not alone. This superstar encouraged me in ways that allowed abundance to flow with every credit avaliable to me being used. Credits I would have never known existed. Karen cares about YOUR dream and within that first interaction you feel connected. In the end Karen made me feel like family. I would never work with or recommend any other to my loved ones. Karen is the BEST and I would follow her whomever she was working for! Stopping here as I could go on and on about this wonderful woman.

Karen absolutely exceeded my expectations of a lender! The communication from Karen and her team was constant, timely and pertinent - not just emails, phone calls too. She explained things thoroughly to my client. I was never left overnight or over the weekend not knowing where we stand. She CARES about me and my client. Then Karen went another step -- she ANTICIPATED potential road blocks and we discussed solutions before they became an issue. Clearly she has had years of experience to accumulate the knowledge she shares. Definitely a five star transaction! I will refer her to my clients every time!
