Highly recommended is the Amerifirst Office under the guidance of Gilbert Castillo. I was most impressed with his insite in what might be better in the refinanacing of our loans and his presentation for approval. The professionalism of his staff resulted in quick turn around, less hassle and prompt funding. Even after the closing he made himself available to respond to questions. It is so important to deal with someone you can trust and rely on for consumer needs and Gilbert Castillo is that person. He made our real estate needs attainablel and our experience a 'piece of cake'.

Gilbert and his team did a wonderful job with my loan. When I had questions and they answered my questions right away. Also they explained everything to me that I need to know for my loan. They even had meetings with me to talk to me face to face. To talk to me about how we where doing in the process. Witch to me show me how provisional they are to take time for my needs. I strongly recommendthem to any one that needs help buying a home.

Working with Gilbert and his team was AWESOME for a FIRST TIME HOME BUYER!! I started the process with another lender. The process started great. But after a few weeks they started ignoring my calls and emails. Gilbert and his team picked up the process and I closed within 20 DAYS!! Yep, within 20 days!!
Gilbert was clear and thorough about the real estate terminology and process. “I even called Gilbert after hours (he was at a family event) I left him a message. Within a few minutes he called me back and solved my problem “!!

The previous lender is STILL sending me “generic emails about the home buying process and Gilbert and his team have closed escrow “!!!
I will not use any other lender for future purchases!! And let’s not forget Jamie!!!! She either called, emailed or texted me with instructions, information or words of encouragement 😇.

I am a first time buyer and I had a lot of questions and needed a great deal of clarification on the process. Gilbert and his team were patient and supportive and never hesitated to answer my questions about the process. They were always available and responded to my calls, emails and texts in a very timely manner. Buying a home can be a very scary experience, but Gilbert and his team took great care of me and made sure I was informed and aware of all details in the process. Jaime was great and I appreciate her persistence in making sure I had all paperwork and requirements in on time. They made sure I did everything required to get my new home. I am so grateful that I selected them as my mortgage company and I will highly recommend without hesitation to all of my friends and colleagues. Thank you AmeriFirst Financial!

Sincerely,

The whole process of financing our vacation home was very smooth and professional. Gilbert and his people made it very convenient for us and we are very happy with the experience. This is not our first time working with Gilbert as he has been a part of our home buying experiences for many years.

Gilbert was fantastic, he really calmed me at the beginning of the process as I was getting overwelmed with info, he calmly walked a thru the process.
He always answered my phone calls promptly and kept me in the loop of the whole mortagage process.
His associates were very friendly and competent in putting this loan together.
Thank you all for your help
