Joe Crist

Branch Manager AmeriFirst Financial, Inc. California, Idaho, Washington, Georgia
I have been a Mortgage Loan Officer for the past 30 years. I align myself with Amerfirst Financial as we are the quickest in the industry for loan closings. While banks can take 2-3 months to close your loan, I average just 3.5 weeks! This is very important as when you go under contract, normally you are given 30 days to close and if your lender cannot accommodate this time frame, you may lose the home you are trying to purchase.

I take great pride in my job and am available weekends and nights to better serve my clients and real estate professionals. My favorite part of my job is seeing the joy of someone attaining “their American dream”. I look forward to working with you and together achieving your goals.

This is the second property I’ve used Joe to negotiate my loan. He is knowledgeable, patient and genuinely a warm and kind individual. He knows the desert real estate market very well and understands the whole Indian land process and Bureau of Indian Affairs protocols ( a lot!)
I just gave his name to some other people today.
His expertise and honesty make it a less painful process than a lot of other lenders. And he is a real person to talk too! Not some virtual computer!

Joe is absolutely amazing. Always there when I had questions, and very patient with me. Completely professional I couldn’t of asked for more. This is my second loan with him, even my family has used him multiple times. Highly recommend.

We purchased a home in LaQuinta last August. Throughout the process, Joe did a great job. Everything was done on time, and in an organized, pleasant, and professional manner. All questions were answered promptly, courteously, and correctly. Would recommend Joe Crist wholeheartedly.

Have a great connection with Joe. He has always been available when I have questions or concerns about both the initial home buying process and now the refinance process. I do pass along to others his contact information. He's quite an asset, don't let him get away!

From the very start, Joe has been the most professional loan officer I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with (and would do so again). Joe was always on call (super important as our RE market is extremely competitive), he always took the time to explain everything, and was always checking in to make sure everything was tracking correctly. We got a great rate and terms and I will use him again in the future> Joe and AmeriFirst are great partners to have – THANK YOU!

We have used Joe multiple times in home sales and refinances. Each time he has gotten the job done with ease. Great communication throughout the process. I have also recommended Joe to others, each time with rave reviews

I own a number of properties and have also refinanced my personal home a few times over the years. Joe Crist was by far the best and easiest person to work with, helping me refinance my home. He is thorough and clear in his presentations. He is also the most patient person I know in this business. It is always a tough time working with escrows but Joe was wonderful, kind and prompt. I would certainly recommend Joe Crist as your Mortgage Loan Officer.
