Gilbert Castillo and the team AmeriFirst Financial were fantastic. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of loan or refinance. The staff was completely professional, the turn around was quick and the closing was a breeze. Best of all I have a loan rate that is unbelievable. Thank you for all you do!!!

Gilbert was absolutely wonderful to work with. His communication was always timely and clear so we knew exactly what to expect. He also went above and beyond to contact the seller to notify them of the status of our loan which helped in the seller choosing to sell to us.

Gilbert Castillo did a great job in not only helping us work through the process of refinancing our home, but also in answering all of our questions in a timely manner. We were very happy with the expediency of the process! He always got back to us quickly if we were not able to contact him directly by phone.
He was always friendly and had a great disposition when dealing with us. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to refinance their home.

My wife and I originally used Gilbert Castillo and his staff at Amerifirst Financial when we purchased our home in 2015. They were pleasant to work with and very professional and courteous. In 2020 we decided to refinance our home. There was no question that Gilbert and his staff at Amerifirst was who we wanted to use. Our experience was just as good or better than it was the first time.

Working with Gilbert and his team was a very pleasurable experience. They were very attentive and kept in constant contact to make sure they had the proper documents to get my home mortgage approved. They worked endlessly day in and day out, even on the weekends and thanks to them, my wife and I were able to get our home that we've been wanting for so long. I would work with Gilbert again in the future and would recommend Gilbert and his team to my friends and family when that time comes. Thank you again Gilbert!
