Christopher Nelson is extraordinary in his ability to get a job done well and quickly. He was able to get for me a very competitive mortgage and complete the processing of this loan in 8 days time, when Wells Fargo was going to require 8 to 12 weeks to do the same.
C J is a consummate professional. I can recommend him without any reservations.

I would highly recommend Christopher Nelson. He was very patient when I asked repeated question and very clear for me to understand. He made sure to contact me ASAP when any additional information was required. Christopher made this process for me less stressful and worked very hard to make sure it was all done on time. Again, thank you soo much for your good services.

CJ helped us with our home loan at the beginning of the year and then recently helped us refinance. This was my third time going through the home loan process (and my first refinance). I fully expected it to be a huge hassle with a lot of stress like it had been in the past. It was not. It was amazing! He was organized and gave options for how to handle documentation. Communication was clear and I'm so happy to have a go to person in the future!

Application Engineer
Was new to the area and after going to two other banks they were ridiculously high on rate and closing costs my realtor recommended CJ to us. CJ was efficient and great to deal with. Since we had to secure a loan on a holiday weekend and we were from out of town this was not easy until we contacted CJ. Would highly recommend CJ. Even with the extra $5000 the builder was giving if we used their bank, CJ was still cheaper.

CJ, was a last minute referral by my Allstate Broker, Mike Denney, after several failed attempts by 3 other lenders to win my business. It was a welcomed surprise when came in with the exact deal I was shopping for on the very first try.
I was confident after our first conversation he was definitely qualified and committed to securing financing for the purchase of my home that best fit my needs. His team of experienced professionals at Amerifirst Financial were friendly, thorough and able to efficiently closed my loan on schedule in just a few weeks. Expediting final closing docs, funding and recording the deed all on the same day.

I really appreciated his direct and honest approach to handling my loan. His innovative and positive solutions, paired with providing consistent loan status updates and willingness to remain available to answer all my questions proved without a doubt he would actively stay attentive to every detail from start to finish. I couldn't of asked for a more pleasant home buying experience.

My wife and I ran into some issues with our previous lenders appraisal process. After the recommendation from a friend we reached out to CJ and the AmeriFirst Team. CJ was agile and responsive and was able to keep our closing timeline intact even after switching lenders.

Cj and his team far exceeded our expectations. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a smooth, reliable mortgage process.
