Let me first start by saying that Carter writes the most polite emails ever. So much so i had to joke with him about it. Carter made the process as easy as it could be. I think we probably dealt with one of the hardest times to by a house with the whole COVID environment going on. Not to mention im self employed which makes it even harder. Carter was always available to explain things and answer any questions for me. Even when i was frustrated with paper work and such he kept cool and helped me through it. It was a pleasure working with him. I highly recommend him and will continue to work with him in the future.

Carter and his team are the best! Carter really knows his stuff. We were able to refinance our VALoan at 2.75% without any hiccups or issues and quickly even during COvid-19. Carter and his team kept us apprised thru the whole process; answered all of our questions. He should be a 10 star!!! Thank you so much.

Carter Short and his team were outstanding! I am so glad that we found Carter to help us with funding our home purchase. An excellent communicator, he was with us every step of the way, super patient, incredibly responsive, whenever we had questions or concerns he was available. Buying a home can be stressful, particularly in a hot market like San Diego. However, the financing of our new home was zero stress thanks to Carter Short and team!

I can’t say enough good things about American Pacific Mortgage’s service. I started a loan application with Quicken, because I thought using an online lender would be quick and simple. Wrong! After two months in escrow and with the seller threatening to cancel our deal, my Realtor suggested starting a backup application with APM. Long story short, Carter and Grant saved the day! They put my application together quickly, were on top of all communications, and closed my loan faster than expected.
Carter and his team were so professional and friendly, I never felt pressured (even though we were in a high-pressure deadline situation). They took the time to answer all of my questions and made themselves available by email, phone and text throughout the process. I wish I had started out with APM. It would have saved me so much time and hassle!

Carter is “our guy!” Over the years we have financed and refinance a number of properties. It is such a great feeling to know you can pick up the phone and get answers to current mortgage law, rates and options. We are beyond grateful for Carter’s expertise. Carter is hands down the best in the business!

Carter has been our loan officer for two home purchases and a few refinances. Carter Is one of the most knowledgeable people I know and he is full of insight and most importantly has integrity. Carter cares about his clients and is always out for their best interest. Carter all around is a great person and an excellent loan offer that will work 24/7 if need be. I have called him on holidays, weekends and after hours he always picks up or if he missed your call he will call you right back immediately. Thank you Carter for all you have done for our family!!!!

Honest and to the point
We have bought a couple houses and never has a mortgage been so easy. He was very honest and to the point which is exactly what I expect. Couldn’t be any happier with the entire process. Carter and his team were fantastic!

I spent approximately 15 years in the mortgage lending industry and Carter is absolutely one of the best Loan Officers I ever known.

I trust him with my own personal home loan/refinance and since retiring from the industry, I forward all my previous customers to him with complete confidence.

His knowledge in all areas of mortgage lending, especially VA loans, is 2nd to none. His direct and honest approach through the entire process from application to funding/recording is refreshing. He provides updates in a timely manner and is very responsive to calls.

Thank you again Carter. Oh and I really appreciate the GREAT rate!

I have worked with Carter three times & every time he is professional, efficient, & quick to answer any of our questions. We had some complicated transaction & he was top of it & knowledgeable in helping us navigate to close quickly & with a great rate!

Carter did a phenomenal job getting us the best rate and holing our hand through every step of the way as first time homebuyers. We were concerned about complex employment histories with recently graduating college and we were able to get everything sorted out and get a great loan. Carter also helped us get the absolute best rate we could in our time period as well as advising us on best options with less than 20% down. He is extremely knowledgeable, but down to earth and easy to communicate with. I would 1000% recommend him.

I have solicited Carter's services on three separate occasions, with outstanding results. Each time Carter was able to get me a great rate with fast and efficient service each time. In a stressful and tedious process Carter and his team's expertise made it easy and stress free. I cannot give Carter a higher recommendation.

This is the 3rd time I have worked with Carter. Always been a pleasure to work with and he really dives into any questions that I have. This is everyday work for him but to the person on the other side, these are things we don't deal with all the time and Carter and his team really do a great job of making sure there aren't any questions left unanswered. Thanks again!

Carter and Grant are amazing to work with. They are so helpful, honest, hardworking, and resourceful. Carter will walk you through every step of the process, answer all questions and returns calls and emails at lightening speed. If you need a lender go with Carter Short with APM. I have purchased over 10 homes in my life; primary residences, vacation homes, and rental properties and have never worked with a more professional lender ever. I will only use Carter and his team with my property purchases and refinancing.

Carter and team are true pros. We were a bit hesitant to move forward with the VA Interest Rate Reduction Loan, but we had nothing to worry about. The process was nearly effortless thanks to not only how the VA process works to make it easy but also, of course, Carter and team’s experience. We got a great new loan. You’ll find a trusted advisor in Carter.

Carter and team has helped family and friends purchase and refinance their homes. It was our turn to put his service to the test. We were very satisfied with Carter and Grant from the start. Speaking with them you know immediately that they know the business. We had some unique variables during our purchase, but they were so experienced that they knew how to keep us on track, and we closed a day sooner than the expected closing date. We highly recommend Carter and team if you want to professional that will get you the financing you need.

I was referred to Carter by my agent Rob, he mentioned that Carter was the best around. After dealing with Carter to get my loan done and get me and my family into our new home I couldn't agree more. Every time I had a question (mostly dumb) Carter always picked up the phone and answered my questions. He made me feel comfortable during the long process which is qualifying for a home loan. His staff (Grant) was extremely helpful as well, Grant was very easy to get a hold of and helped me get my paperwork in order. Overall if I were to buy a house again the first call I would make would be to Carter. 100% thank you for your help!

Carter has been great from the beginning of our loan processing. He has the ability to think, plan and implement ways to fit the needs of the customer. He has provided good communication and foresight on the process. In addition, he has provided updates on the movement of the process - you know where you are at in the process. Best of all, he was available to answer all questions week nights and weekends. Carter is most highly recommended and trustworthy in all aspects of loan processing. Many thanks Carter for getting the loan funding on time. You cared to ensure we get the best of the best. Ed
