Ed and his team are very efficient. They keep track of your progress along the way and call often to make sure everything is on track. They also keep their deadlines, which is very important with a home purchase.

Ed was extremely knowledgable about anything we had questions on throughout the whole process! He was honest when we were weighing all our options and truly wanted to help us find what worked best for us. Whenever we had a question he was quick to provide an answer! We highly recommend him!

I wish to recommend Ed Fontes. He is definitely my broker of choice. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable of the real estate industry. I also found him to be most accommodating (always returning my phone calls even after hours). I wouldn't deal with anyone else.

Ed Fontes is a highly dedicated loan officer who is honest and very hardworking. I was blessed to run into Ed through a co-workers referral two and a half years ago. At the time I was unable to buy a house as my current house was underwater and I had filed a Chapter 13 to get rid of my 2nd mortgage. Ed worked really hard at that time to get me the house at that time but I needed to wait a year after the closing of my Chapter 13 to be able to buy a house. Ed had all my paperwork and he surprisingly called me one day and told me that I am ready to buy a house now. Not only did Ed get my loan through but he also referred me to a great realtor ...John Formoso...who helped me sell my house. Ed is very supportive of clients and gets things done. I strongly recommend Ed Fontes for your loans. He is very down to earth, approachable , supportive , patient and caring. Thank you Ed for Simply being you...You are the best out there.....

He was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond to walk us through the process. This is the first house I've ever bought and it was so quick and easy thanks to him. We closed in only 10 days! He was always quick to answer every question I had and super helpful. The next time I buy a house I'm going to talk to him first.

I am a first time homebuyer and my broker recommended me to use Ed Fontes. When you are a first-time homebuyer, you are bombarded with loads of sparkly marketing when people are selling you their loans services, and it is so hard to chose the right, genuine service. You can't go wrong with Ed. I highly recommend him, because Ed keeps it real. He will tell you the facts and explain why you are getting what you are getting and helps you ensure that your house will close on time with no hiccups. Ed and his fantastic team is on top of it and will help you get your loan get approved at a great rate and with the quickest speed. I was able to get a lower rate and was able to close escrow within a month thanks to the efficiency and speed of Ed and his team. Highly recommended.

Ed Fontes and his team at AmeriFirst proved to us for the second time this year, that they deliver on their promise to get us funded - new mortgage, when others failed. They saved our day! I'd like everybody to know that when Ed says they can fund you, they will do their part, as long as you do yours, and have a winning real estate agent representing you!

ED Fontes is SUPER Great Loan Consultant. Ed made the dream comes true for my Buyer. My Buyer desperately needed the loan right way because the first lender turned down my buyer's loan at the last minute. Ed finished the entire loan process in a short time. That was a miracle! Thank you very much, Ed. I certainly recommend Ed to my clients for loans. Much appreciate very much for your professionalism and the job well done.

Ed was great!!!!!!!!!!!! He was able to save my deal that the first loan officer could not approve. My clients were happy that they were able to get their home as first time buyer's.

I have met many Loan Officers throughout my career and I must say without any doubt, Ed KNOWS his job. He knows that to get the job done, you must be willing to look at all options without any doubt. His willingness to get that loan for his client and the patience he conveys is absolutely admirable.

Ed is a well known name in Sacramento Lending and he is a veteran mortgage broker. Ed combines an easy style and approachability with a solid market mastery derived from years of service in the lending industry. I closed a transaction with Ed on a VERY difficult property. He got the deal closed and I was impressed with his patience and dedication to a very difficult client. I highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for personal service combined with professionalism and unbeatable industry knowledge. He really knows his stuff and his style is fun and warm.

Back in 2009 Ed helped make my dream of owning a house come true. I had been a single mother for a long time and it was a struggle to get into a position where I could buy a home for my daughter and myself. Ed made that happen through his relentless efforts in ensuring all the bases were covered. Since then, Ed has helped me with refi attempts and today I am hoping he can get me through a refi to remodel my home. I highly recommend doing business with this professional. He has an overwhelming knowledge base and he is a great person to boot!

Ed Fontes and his team were able save our Escrow by completing a loan that another lender was not able to do.

I have known Ed Fontes for over 15 years, Ed has never once told me that a deal can't be done. I know a lot of lenders out there say they can but Ed truly can. I feel blessed that Ed has been a part of life and more importantly a part of my success in Real Estate.

Ed Fontes is simply the best. I have been in the mortgage industry or related Real Estate services for the past 30 years. Over these years I have not met anyone with his knowledge or capacity to complete or help prepare any client to complete a mortgage. Ed has also helped many clients of mine complete a transaction when other's could not. You can only exceed allowing Ed to be involved with any mortgage needs.

He is very professional and every time we need help with a question, he"s there . Because of this we have recommended Ed Fontes to our family members and friends. They as well are very happy with the way that Ed has helped them out. Thank you Ed for everything.

Ed saved the day. I was the sellers agent for a home. We accepted an offer that seemed good. The day it was scheduled to close the loan agent they where using came clean and confessed the loan couldn't be done. This put all parties in a difficult situation. The buyer stood to lose $1000 of dollars for breach of contract. The sellers agent went into emergency mode and Ed's name was mentioned as "if it could be done, Ed could do it". A week later the home closed. As I said Ed saved the day.

Ed Fontes has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help structure our home loan to closing. I recommend Ed to anyone that is looking for a home loan. he will guide you in the right direction all the way. there is no dumb question in his vocabulary. he was very thorough. if you are not using Ed, you are not getting serviced properl.
