The anxiety and anticipation of buying a home was overwhelming but EVERYTIME I spoke with Carter, it all went away.

I really appreciate Carter and Grant! They really care about the impact they make. I've worked with them in the past with my VA Home Loan, and I'll continue to work with them in the future. They made my VA IRRRL refinance process feel so easy and fast (no headaches).

Bottom line: If you're reading this and considering refinancing your home loan through your bank/credit union, call Carter Short first! He and his team are very informative, personable, super friendly, and will not waste your time. They locked in an incredible rate for me and saved me thousands of dollars!

Carter, and Grant are an amazing team to work with. They always respond to my emails within minutes and the emails are very polite/informative. They went out of their way to help us refinance our 1st and 2nd in a timely manner. Our 1st was a ARM with rate going up, even with some credit problems history they got us a new VA loan with fixed rate. Stay in place restrictions of COVID (fax, email, phone). We are very grateful for this team for “making it happen” and will recommend them to all my family/friends.

I'm a commercial realtor, self-employed, buying a house in the middle of a pandemic. Carter and his team came through like no others could. We couldn't be more appreciative of his transparency from the get go. He didn't just give us a rosy unrealistic picture, only to leave us hanging in the end. He gave us the truth, and then got it done. Don't waist your time and potentially lose your deal going anywhere else.

Carter was patient with me in the the process of refinancing my current home. Then he kept me updated on the refinance rates until I found one I was comfortable with. In my experience this industry just moves on especially in times like these.

Carter is definitely in the top 1% in his industry and anyone would be lucky to have him help them.

First let me say, I don't do recommendations very often. Why, because I don't believe in rewarding people for doing their job. However... this is one I had to write. Carter and Grant were BEYOND EXCELLENT. Above and beyond in communication, detail and exceeded my expectations. Not only does Carter have a gregarious personality, his knowledge of the industry and market are impressive. I thought re-fi'ing was going to be stressful and frustrating. NOPE, not with these Pro's. Scale 1 out of 10, I would give them a 11. They were excellent at every turn and I would HIGHLY recommend them. Thanks again Carter and Team!!!

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.

"Although we could not meet face to face due to pandemic, he told us everything in detail and answered all our questions. it didn't take too long to get to results smoothly. I would definitely work with him again without thinking twice and I highly recommend him to everyone. thanks Carter for a great service."

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!
