CJ is great to work with. This is my 2nd VA home purchase and I had a lot of questions as I'm keeping my 1st home as a rental. He was always available to answer my questions regarding both homes.

CJ is wonderful. One call Friday afternoon, by Monday he had numbers for me and lined up an appraiser. All the paper work was over the phone or by the internet. It was so easy I kept thinking this is too good to be true, we have to be missing something! But we weren’t. I have since found out that 2 of my sons have refinanced with CJ in the last couple of months. CJ took great care of my refinance I would Recommend him and even use his services again.

I am very pleased with Cj and Amerifirst. They processed my home loan in a customer-friendly manner. Prior to selecting Amerifirst, I searched and compared several companies to see who was best suited to help me. I was most impressed by CJ and I'm highly satsisfied with the job he and his team did for me. I highly recommend him. Please consider Amerifirst and CJ in your own search. I'm confident you'll be pleased with the results.

CJ made the whole refi process easy. This was not our first refi and wekwe what it can be like if you are working with someone who doesn't know what they are doing. CJ knows what he's doing and he's great to work with! We never had to leave our house for any portion of this refi. The final signing was done in our home which made us more comfortable since we didn't have to worry about contact with other people other than the notary. Everyone wore masks and we got through the signing with no problem.

CJ is a joy to work with! He really worked hard to ensure we were getting the best interest rate possible. He answered all questions we had with clarity and depth. He was able to get our loan taken care of in a reasonable amount of time during the COVID-19 pandemic. All paperwork was cared for electronically up to the actual signing which was brought to our home for signatures. I would recommend CJ hands down to anybody looking for a new mortgage or to refinance.

I was referred to CJ by a friend following a terrible experience trying to refinance my mortgage with a major bank. CJ was extremely helpful and offered just the guidance I needed to understand the process. The entire loan experience with CJ was a breathe of fresh air after what I went through with the bank and I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend CJ to anyone looking to finance a home.

Working with CJ was a fantastic experience! Couldn't have asked for better service. He stayed connected with me throughout the entire refi process and helped guide me through the different stages as we advanced to closing. I can't thank CJ enough for being a great resource and sounding board as we started the process and a great partner as we moved through the paperwork and closed.

CJ was amazing! I don’t use that word lightly. As a veteran, working through using my VA loan for the first time, there was a bit to do. CJ was active in the whole process and helped me with every step. I would recommend him to anyone! But if you are a veteran, he is 100% behind helping you get through the loan process.
