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!

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!

This is the fourth home I have purchased, but my first time utilizing AmeriFirst. I have utilized various Mortgage brokers in the past, but non compared to the AmeriFirst experience. Karen Jones is by far the best in the business. She was helpful, knowledgeable, communicative, and personable. She answered all my questions and was in constant contact with me throughout the process. She was very professional and I felt like she was working for me as much as she was working for AmeriFirst. I would highly recommend Karen to friends and family moving forward. As a consumer you want to feel good about the money you spend and AmeriFirst accomplished that. Thanks.

Karen Jones was not only the most informative loan person but a kind individual that cared about me and not just my loan. I wasn't treated like I was a file # or set of figures for my loan, but she treated me like a real person...like a friend. I was so glad that my realtor recommended Karen Jones and her staff to help me with my financing.
I would highly recommend Karen to anyone who feels like they should be treated as a person, as a friend. She made me feel like I mattered...not my money but me!
Thank you Karen for helping me to get in my home a pleasant experience. You are a special lady!

Karen Jones and her team took great care in providing my client with the professional service that one would expect. Transaction was smooth and closed on time. My client had a bad experience with a previous lender and Karen explained the process in a step by step conversation that my client understood and made my client very comfortable. Communication was open and Karen or her team was always available and easy to get a hold of. Both Karen and her coordinator Paige were always pleasant to take to. Most of the documentation was collected up front taking the stress out and the confidence in. Thanks Karen and to her Team of professionals
