From the first initial appointment to the final day of signing I must say this experience with Rebecca and her team has been flawless. Every step of my home purchase has been so precise and smooth!! Great communication, great follow-up and made this all so enjoyable!
Also, I cant thank Gina N. for all of her time and follow ups!
If you need a strong team with high professionalism - this is your team!

The AmeriFIrst team was extremely communicative, flexible, and easy to work with. It appeared that they work practically around the clock so getting questions answered and financing scenarios communicated quickly in this extremely competitive real estate market was a snap. I already referred this team to others looking to buy and they have been extremely happy as well.

Rebecca and John made our experience smooth and flawless. We were concerned about being new home buyers and all the things we would need to learn through our process and they made it so easy. Would recommend them to anyone.

Rebecca and John were fantastic to work with! They were recommended by my realtor and I'm glad they were. As a first-time homebuyer, they answered my many questions along the way. They are highly-responsive at all hours (evenings and weekends) and quickly supported me as I made multiple offers and needed revised paperwork in the current hot homebuying market. I can't recommend them enough!

Rebecca and her team couldn't have dealt with more issues in the most wonderful way. After a long and brutal divorce, Rebecca was able to put up with all the court issues, the numbers changing a billion times and went above and beyond to make sure that everything went well. She was even working from he cell phone home sick with Covid! If you are in the market she is the woman to know.

Thank you Rebecca!

Rebecca, John and Gina were such a pleasure to work with on our recent refinance of our home. We had a very challenging case and had to clear up several items throughout the process. Rebecca took the time to personally call me to reassure me that the issues could be fixed and John and Gina both stayed on top of our process consistently. Everyone was completely thorough and patient and helped us to meet our goals as quickly as possible. I highly recommend their services!

I never interacted with Rebecca, I only interacted with her son, John. John was very responsive and helpful. Since this is a recommendation for Rebecca, I have given her 2 stars based on the premise that never interacted with her nor got to know her. She must have been too busy for me. The only saving grace was John and his helpfulness.

I was recommended by a Real Estate Agent to partner with AmeriFirst Financial. I have many friends in the mortgage broker industry. Amerifirst Financial saw me as a run-of-the-mill client so they gave me a standard rate. On the last purchase of a home in my previous area, my mortgage broker gave me a discount of 1 basis point, driving my rate down and effectively reducing the costs he was paid. This was not the case with AmeriFirst Financial. Because I was a run-of-the-mill dude off the street, they gave me very minimal discounts and ensured they got top dollar for my half a million dollar house. I will not be refinancing with AmeriFirst Financial and will not be using Rebecca (never met) again.

Recently I've had a few poor experiences with large financial institutions .
When I decided to re-finance my primary residence for a lower rate, I got in touch with Rebecca who was my Loan officer once 5 years ago. I am so grateful I did and for their exceptional service and care they took when processing my new mortgage.
They were quick, responsive and efficient.
I recommend AmeriFirst to anyone in need of a great experience refinancing!!
Thank you Rebecca and team!

Rebecca is an outstanding professional. She took all the time necessary to guide me through the VA loan process which made buying my first home a educational and great experience. I would highly recommend her to friends and acquaintances who are in the home-buying mode in Mesa, AZ, and the greater Phoenix valley area. Top notch!!

Rebecca and her team did a fantastic job during the refinance of my house. They were attentive, quick to respond, and clarified every step of the process so I understood what was happening and when. They even exceeded their own time frame and got the process done quicker than expected.

I wanted to say thank you to Rebecca, John, Gina, and everyone else at Amerifirst that helped secure our home loan on time to close. Rebecca and John were always available for any questions I had via email, phone or text 7 days a week. The work you all do there is the reason why I chose to use Amerifirst again for our home loan.

Rebecca and her team are knowledgeable and efficient and communicate well throughout the mortgage approval process. I think it would be helpful to applicants to receive a list of documents that might be requested and a five minute tutorial of sorts to help us understand, up front, why documents might be requested repeatedly and the importance of prompt responses to those requests.

Rebecca and John did an excellent job in helping us secure a home loan for a property in Arizona. I don't live in the state, and her team was able to help coordinate a lot of the details that can be more difficult over long distance. I appreciate her help in getting a great rate and closing the sale in the timeline we needed.

Rebecca and her team are just terrific. We sat down and worked through some solutions and she was quite attentive. Helped us understand everything and stayed on top of follow up! It was a pleasure working with Rebecca, her team and Amira first
