Shane is an amazing loan officer. In fact, we started this whole process (even before we called a realator) by reaching out to him directly based on a recommendation from a family member and he definitely lived up to, and exceeded all our hopes and expectations. Shane was honest and helpful from the very beginning. He made us feel important and made sure we knew what was going on from the first time we reached out, all the way to the end. I am an engineer and have A LOT of questions. Shane patiently answered all of them, even when I asked him the same question again a day or so later. He made me feel good about myself because of my drive to be informed. My wife also enjoyed working with him. We were both impressed with how we felt that he was on our side and wanted us to achieve our goals. Shane was responsive and quick to reply. When things got down to the wire, he concentrated all his efforts to make sure things all got done on time. I feel we made a friend in Shane and would share his name with anyone.

Shane is awesome. As we were preparing for our loan a few complications came up but Shane worked through them and really fought for us.

He did a really great job in making this process as painless as possible and communicated with us frequently even when we ran into difficult situations.

I recommend Shane 100%. He did great things to help us.

Shane was great! This was our first time buying a home, and we were very nervous since we didn't know any of the process. Shane welcomed all questions, and usually got back to us right away. He discussed all options available to us, the good as well as the not so great, and let us decide without pressuring us into anything. He was very friendly, and ensured we understood everything we were signing. We will definitely recommend him to friends and family.

It was a pleasure working with Shane. He was attentive to our needs and he looked out for us, instead of just for the good if his bottom line, as we worked through the entire process. Shane was referred by our daughter who is a real estate agent and has had to work, I'm sure, with several mortgage companies and representatives. Shane came highly recommended. We would not hesitate to recommend Shane or to use him and his team in the future.

Working with Shane was like working with an old friend. Conversations were enjoyable and comforting, he responded to our questions and concerns right away, and he made sure we understood everything we asked. I can say with great confidence that when I go to refinance or buy our next home I will be calling his number.

Working with Shane and AmeriFirst Financial was like working with an old friend. Conversations were welcoming and comforting, they responded to all our questions right away, and they made sure we were confident with the decisions before we made them. They are very family friendly and I know they worked their hardest to get us everything we wanted. A big thank you from my family to AmeriFirst Financial, we are in our dream home and happy because of you.

We are retired and have not owned a home for several years. We were not sure we would qualify on our retirement income. Shane was so helpful in finding us funding and keeping us informed on the loan process. We would highly recommend Shane to anyone looking for financing a new home!!

I am currently living in the home of my dreams thanks to Shane. My loan process was anything but easy, and I wasn't always the easiest to work with, but Shane worked tirelessly on making sure my loan went through by close of escrow. I can honestly say that if I went through any other mortgage company, they wouldn't have worked half as hard as AmeriFirst did. Shane didn't treat me like a number, he treated me like family and it meant the world to me during such a stressful time. Thanks Shane!!

Shane was excellent from the very first day I filled out my application until I received my keys. He explained every detail to me in a way I could understand. Anytime he needed docs signed or information from me, he came to me, he never made me go to him. There were some stressful situations during the process and he always relieved my stress and constantly assured me that everything would be fine. I would definitely recommend Shane.

My experience with Shane during the process of buying my house was contrary to the typical home-buying headache. It was easy, and it was fast. He was there every step of the way, and available every time we needed him. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of purchasing a home.

Shane Bowlby is by far the most knowledgeable, competent, easy to work with money man I have ever met He stays current on all aspects of the house buying process and keeps you updated. Once you meet him you know he will be someone you trust and may confide in. He truly is a step ahead of his contemporaries. Thank you Shane.

Shane is great! It was such a pleasure working with him. He'said a family man, just like me, and knows how to connect on a personal level to understand your needs. He provides you with scenarios while going over mortgage options to ensure you choose the right type of loan to fit your lifestyle. Thank you, Shane!
