Mary Anderson recommends Garrett Bowlby

Financial secretary

Gartett Bowlby and his team did an awesome job of getting my home refinance done in record breaking time. Garrett's team is so enjoyable to work with and kept me posted on where the paperwork was going next. I'm so glad that I was referred to them by a friend that does business with Amerifirst.

Paul Merrell recommends Brian Kersting, MBA


We were scheduled to close our refinance loan late November. Unfortunately my wife passed away due to COVID-19 prior to signing. Mr. Kersting and his team were able to continue with the refinance after my beloved wife’s death. I did not have to start the process over nor did I have to fill out more paperwork. Mr. Kersting handled all the paperwork so I was able to sign a new set of closing documents without any hassle. Thank you Mr. Kersting for handling all the documentation while I handled death of my beloved wife. I honestly thought we were going to start from the beginning once my wife passed away however that was not the case and Mr. Kersting handled it all and for that I’m grateful. I highly recommend AmeriFirst And Brian Kersting

Randall L Price recommends Tara Bianco Krieg

Business owner

It was great working with Tara and her team! I am self employed and was unable to get a loan through a friend of mine who lacked the experience and knowledge working with self employed clients, but Tara's team had the experience and knew exactly what to do to get my refinance done. I was impressed with their system of signing docs and getting docs to them. It was very easy and they were always there to answer my questions. I would recommend Tara to anyone who needed a loan.

Calvin Kwan recommends Tara Bianco Krieg

Physician and Professor

I made the decision to move down from Seattle to Phoenix in a matter of months. Tara and her team made, what seemed like an impossible task, possible!. I was so impressed with Tara's ability to work her magic and find numerous ways my complicated situation could work. This was 2 years ago. I recently Re-Fied with Tara and again was met with the same professionalism and patience (as my inability to complete forms was my fault). Tara and Sheena (another magical creature) worked together to hear me out and help guide me through the process. Thank you Tara and Team! You guys absolutely rock!

Thomas & Diana recommend Jason E. Gordon

Being self-employed and getting a mortgage or re-fi was only fun back in 2004/2005. With all that has occurred since the housing bust, there are two things I know... 1) Self-employment has its perks and perils; 2) People in the mortgage industry come and go.

Our family had undergone some major changes since 2015. We needed to get a new mortgage on a home through a very tricky divorce, self-employment, and a ticking time bomb.

We tried to go through the re-fi process in late 2018 and found that banks were quite restrictive on self employed and the numbers (unfortunately) did not work out. We pushed so hard. Jason was our guide. Ultimately, there was no way this loan was going to go through. We missed the mark and 2019 was a bust. We stayed the course, kept in contact with Jason, listened to his advice and prepared for a future opportunity to make this work.

As time was running out (we had to make some urgent moves), we went with our trusted advisor and jumped feet first back into the fire in mid-2020. Not only was the overall economy different, but we were now in the middle of a global pandemic. Jason offered his usual calm and cool perspective, we would get everything in order, follow all guidelines, and push forward.

What was supposed to be a quick and easy 30-45 day process was dragged out. More papers were requested, more verifications, more, more, more... Jason and his team kept focused on the goal - get this loan done. It seemed we would get our hopes up, then be met with another request.

We decided to throw our family of 7 into an RV and travel safely during COVID. Barreling along the West Coast in a mobile house on wheels was filled with surprises. Luckily we were able to provide all the final information, documents, and stay in contact regularly with Jason and his team. At this point, our hopes started to fade as we traveled back towards home. We planned how to attack this again, hoping rates would remain at these historic lows, and regroup and try again in 2021.

Our family made it back home, a little tired from travel for 25 days on the road... But we were glad to be home. Two days later we heard from Jason's team...

It was done, approved. What is really funny, we did not believe Jason. He said through his team's never-ending and never wavering effort, the deal was done. We locked in an incredible rate - still lower than anything we've seen for a 30-year mortgage.

All I can say is that Jason and his team saved our family from some potential heartache and hardship. The ability for the team to push this over the goal line was an incredible effort on their part - one that our family cannot say THANK YOU enough.

If you, or someone you know, is self-employed - Jason and his team are your first and only stop. They will work out every detail, every angle, every benefit, every perk and keep YOUR best interest at the very forefront - every step of the way.

I cannot more strongly endorse Jason Gordon and his team for any of your home financing needs. They are true professionals and customer service is unparalleled.

Thank you Jason, Laura, and everyone else who made this happen. We truly appreciate you all!

Kyle Hawkins recommends Cheryl Scheidell

Cheryl is absolutely the best. I have gone through multiple transactions through the years with Cheryl and I can't imagine working with anyone else. She has her client's best interest at heart and gives great advice throughout the entire process. She is always available to coach and talk you through options and she's there for you throughout the entire process. I am always impressed at how hard she fights for us to get the best possible outcome out of each transaction and every time I'm so grateful and thankful I chose her to work with years ago. She's amazing! I can't say enough good things about my many years and many opportunities to work with Cheryl. She's fantastic and I highly recommend her to anyone!
