I worked with Karen and her team and never had such a confidence that my lender is on top of her stuff. We did the same day closing on the house thst we sold and the one we bought, but Karen and her team pulled it through.
Great follow up and great people.

I highly recommend Karen Jones, who is a consummate finance professional and always very thorough and knowledgeable. She qualified my client and had his loan pre-approved before he started making offers on homes. This made the process for getting his offer accepted easier and enabled the loan to be closed with minimal concern that the buyer would not make it past underwriting. Her assistant, Ginger Aretakis, handled all the details and maintained excellent communications each step of the way. It was a pleasure working with Karen and her team as well as AmeriFirst Financial.

Karen is extremely talented, professional, and trustworthy mortgage loan officer. Throughout the loan process, she was very helpful and always on time. She made sure to answer all our concerns and questions to our full satisfaction even after the closure. I will be recommending her to my friends and family.

I also want to say that we first went to a popular bank to apply for a mortgage. They turned us away because of our visa status. We were about to lose hope, and Karen came to aid and managed to get us mortgage. The whole process went very smoothly and it was beyond our expectations.

Karen and Ginger were amazing to work with. They both went above and beyond to make my house purchase experience very pleasant! They were on top of all the paperwork and made sure they included everyone involved with my purchase with any updates they had along the way. They were in continuous contact with me and my realtor during the whole process and answered any questions I had along the way. I had everything explained to me in a way that I was able to understand, which I most definitely appreciated. I would highly recommend Karen and her associates!

We had a very challenging scenario with our loan needs. Karen did not give up. She turned over every stone and was finally able to piece together a program that worked for us. And she kept us abreast of everything during the process.

I know plenty of loan officers. I chose Karen because she's great at what she does and goes the extra 10 miles for her clients.

I really enjoyed working with Karen Jones! She is thorough, detailed and anticipates needs. She cares about giving you a good experience and goes out of her way to explain everything until you feel comfortable. She is a great communicator and was readily available when I had questions. She was very attentive throughout the whole process and called me before documents were sent to personally inform me of the progress of the loan and to answer questions. The loan was processed quickly and I was very satisfied when escrow closed on time. I would especially recommend her to first time home buyers because she is so patient with questions and is reassuring when you have the middle of escrow melt down and feel completely overwhelmed with the process. The one thing that really helped me throughout the loan process were the nicely formatted loan estimate worksheets that were very easy to read and understand. She showed me many different loan scenarios, and I felt like I knew every option and could make an informed decision despite having very little experience in home loans. The home buying process is overwhelming and it is nice to have someone whom you trust who is both knowledgeable and caring. I was very fortunate to have been referred to Karen Jones.

We recently came in contact with Karen Jones at Amerafirst Financial.We had rented for many years so were unfamiliar with the home buying process. Karen was a wealth of critical information. She was very customer friendly and kept us informed about each step of the process. Always offering different scenarios to help us find what worked best for us. I would highly recomend Karen and her team, and would use her again in the mortgage process.

Purchasing my first home was a long journey for me, and there were many little details I did not understand about the loan process. Karen Jones, my loan officer, had an abundance of knowledge and education and patience that she used in order to walk with me through this process. Karen and her team provided me with all the tools I needed to make smart decisions based off of my financial status. Karen went above and beyond her role in my situation. She had my best interest at heart, and in today's world, that is hard to find - someone who is in it for their client's needs, and not their own. I highly recommend Karen Jones to first-time buyers, or buyers who have had a rough time in the past. Thank you Karen, there are not enough words to express my gratitude for your support.

Karen Jones and her team were great to work with. Not only was the communication constant, they were ahead of schedule the entire loan process. They had the documents ready to go a full week before closing. Karen kept me up to date at least weekly most times more than once a week. She is extremely knowledgeable.

My last deal with Karen went so smoothly, I joked that I felt guilty getting paid. On two other occasions, I brought files to Karen that other lenders were unable to close just as we rounded the home stretch. Karen was able to transfer the files, get them into underwriting and close them both with only minor extensions required.

Karen and her team did an outstanding job again! Their communication is the best I've worked with, everyone is kept informed throughout the transaction. I will continue to use Karen and her team and recommend you do also!

She prepared three great loan programs for me so that I could fully understand my current and future financial situations. She also educated me on the strategies I could take to truly maximum my buying power. I have followed her recommendations and I'm on the road to being able to get into the house of my dreams.

Thank you so much Karen!
