Experience matters, especially when your loan is not an "easy" one. I had a jumbo loan with complicated income situation. CJ ensured that the experience was as seamless and pain free as possible for me. When dealing with this type of transaction, trust is critical, never once did I second guess that CJ was doing the right thing by me. Highly recommend, true pro.

CJ is simply the best. He is professional, kind and transparent. He answered every question we had and gave honest analysis of what would and would not be beneficial to us. I would recommend him to anyone and plan to use him in the future. He was a great support throughout our refinance.

CJ and his staff were fantastic, I worked with Desire, Marlo, and CJ. They were all very patient and communicative throughout, at no point did I feel lost or out of the loop. From the start I felt very comfortable, as they explained the process thoroughly. Most important to me was that any time I had question or doubt I could shoot them an email, text, or call; they answered promptly, and they adapted to my preferred communication quickly, at no point did I feel that I had to chase them down. 10/10 will be using their services again.

My experience with Amerifirts was great. Christopher Nelson and Marlo went OVER and ABOVE what I think a normal mortgage broker would. Mine was a difficult loan and had a strict deadline. Christopher and Marlo worked early mornings and late nights to make it happen. I'm forever grateful for both them. This is my first home purchase and if it wasn't for them, I probably would not have this property.

I couldn't ask for a better home buying experience. CJ made this process smooth and answered every question I had to ease my concerns. He always took the time to answer my phone calls, emails, and texts regardless of how many times I reached out. Thank you, CJ!

In the past I have used some of the "big nation wide" mortgage agencies. About a year and a half ago, I decided to give Amerifirst a try. CJ made the mortgage process simple and easy even when compared to the other agencies I've used in the past. In the time since I got that loan, I saw that interest rates were dropping, I decided it was time to refinance that mortgage. CJ made sure that both of these processes were super smooth and he definitely took the stress out of the process. I have also recommended CJ to two of my coworkers and they had the same experience I did. I would highly recommend CJ and his team to anyone.

CJ and his team made the process of refinancing so quick and easy. I appreciated that I could upload the documents to a secure site and they coordinated for a notary to come to me. They relieved all of the stress I had about the process, and answered all of my questions along the way.

CJ did an awesome job with keeping me inform the whole time with my lending needs. CJ was extremely nice even when I was panic and calling him all the time. CJ did not hesitate to answer any of my questions. I would recommend CJ to all my friends and family who is choosing purchase and refinance a home in Arizona.

CJ did an awesome job on our loan. We gave him an unrealistic deadline during the holiday season even with the Russian hack he was able to pull through for us. He saved us from having to pay extra fees for extended travel while moving across the country and made the process less stressful. We highly recommend CJ for his expertise and professionalism. He kept his promise and pulled through even through these unprecedented times.

I just recently purchased my first home and I could not have done it without CJ and his team. They made the process as easy as can be especially considering that I had some items that I had to take care of. They were very professional and patient with me while I gathered the necessary documents and answered all the questions that I had without making me feel completely out of my depth. I cannot thank them enough. They helped make my dreams come true and now have a place to call home for my family and I.

CJ was so phenomenal! When I first reached out I was sure I wouldn’t be able to be in the position to buy a house within a year. He walked me through my credit and showed me what I needed to work on. Just a couple months later - I am in my new house!! He was so helpful with each step to make sure I knew what was going on. Since this was my first time going through the home buying process I was very intimidated, CJ made the whole process easy and comfortable.
