As stressful as buying a home is, Ms. Whitney was very knowledgeable and made me feel very much at ease as the process went along. She kept me up to date with every little detail and worked very closely with my Realtor to ensure no major issues would arise. She was a blessing.

I was nervous about working with a different lender other than my credit union, however; Jim was honest with me, informative, and he allowed me to ask the most unique questions, and he answered them with a great sense of confidence. For that, I want to personally thank you Jim for all of your help in securing our loan for our new home. Your organizational skills and thoroughness surpassed my expectations….your professionalism as well as kindness made all of the difference in our interactions with you. My husband and I put our trust in you and you most definitely came through for us considering our circumstances! Thank you for your patience as well as treating us as people rather than just another home loan customer. You stand above the rest, Mr. Boone! Our hats off to you.

- Luisa R.

The beginning of my story began with tons of doc sign documents that I did not think would ever end, but the ending became a very beautiful thing. I am now a proud beach condo owner in Ocean City. I thank all of you. You worked very hard on making it happen. I cannot thank you enough.

- Lynda M.

Aaron made what could have been a very stressful experience turn out to be the most enjoyable and easy process. We truly feel grateful to have him be a part of our home-buying experience. He made sure we understood everything, was always accessible, and flexible meeting with us if we needed clarification on things. Aaron truly is remarkable.

- Colston B.

Tom, a huge thank you to you and your team for everything you have done for such a quick turn around. We are so very grateful and are looking forward to moving into our new home.

- Mark and Michelle

I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how thankful we are to have met you. Not only did you educate us on financing and purchasing a home, but also provided me sound financial suggestions which I confirmed as being in our best interest with our financial advisor. Every aspect of the purchase and settlement went just as you had outlined and planned. Be assured, you will always be our Lender and I am referring you to all my friends and family. Thanks again for taking the extra time to help us. We are eternally grateful!

- Jason & Candice R.

My process has been quick and easy. Customer service is superb. I get my questions answered and the loan process is finished right on schedule. Ana was even working with me that fit my schedule. I have a good experience with her as a first time home buyer.

- Zillow

We had a wonderful experience with First Heritage Mortgage. Almost everything was electronic which made things very convenient. At the closing everything was in order and very fast. The customer service is second to none. Ive bought 3 homes now and they were by far my best experience from start to finish.

- Joshua B.

Second time buying a house. Second lender we’ve worked with. I won’t be looking for a third lender for our next house! 🙂 Y’all rock!

- Thomas W.

I couldn’t be happier with Scott and his team. Scott went above and beyond at our first meeting explaining everything about the process to us as first time home-buyers – and answering every one of my questions. From there we were in the hands of his capable team who were responsive, organized and very friendly – and Scott was always available if we needed anything. It was obvious this team has a wealth of experience and had some great tools that made the whole process easier including online signatures for most documents and a secure transmittal system for important documents you wouldn’t want in your regular email. In summary, great team, great process and great support along the way. I will definitely be recommending FHM.

- Trevor W.

Tom, words cannot express my gratitude for all the help you rendered! I appreciate it all! ☺ It was a pleasure!

- Tochi

Last year, I attended a first time home buyer seminar. Jeffrey Neilsen was the guest speaker. He explained the entire loan process in clear, concise language. He patiently answered everyones questions. When I was ready to purchase a home, I knew I only wanted him as my lender. He, and his wonderful team, once again held my hand through the entire process. My nervousness went away, because I knew I was in good hands. Their professionalism, and immediate responses to any and all questions I had, were stellar. Jeffrey even helped me secure a realtor, that I was comfortable with. Between Jeffrey and the realtor, I felt like family was helping me through this journey. It was a pleasure working with the First Heritage Mortgage team!

- Stacey P.

My husband and I had a question regarding the VA loan before we decided on a lender, so we called Michael. It was on a Sunday and he answered the phone!! The fact that he was available to answer our question on a Sunday and that we couldn’t call the other lender outside of business hours was the deciding factor for us. I really liked how responsive he was.

- Samirawit H.

The best experience we ever had with refinancing a mortgage! Jerry Berry and his team moved fast and efficiently and made the whole process such a pain- free experience for us. Will highly recommend to all our friends and family.

- Donald N.

We have been in our first house for a year. As we count our blessings we remember you and all your help through the home buying process. Thank you for helping us last year. We are so happy in our home.

- Paul & Erin

Thanks for all of your help and for being patient with me as a first time buyer! I said it before, but I will say it again you were really amazing and made sure you were available to help me at all times and to give your advice even when it had nothing to do with the actual mortgage process!

- Maria C.

We want to personally thank you for everything you have done to help us close in such a short period of time. What you have pulled off is nothing less of a miracle! And we cannot thank you enough!

- Rasaahn and Dennis

We were both really impressed by your responsiveness. I would recommend you in a heartbeat.

- Ryan & Vanessa Y.

This was by far the easiest purchase thanks to the amazing team. Rates were good, process was fast, but the service beat any bank that I have previously dealt with, in orders of magnitude! Bernadette Richard was fantastic. Made the process very easy.

- Scott T.

Our experience with David was phenomenal, as he was simply a pleasure to work with. Not only is David extremely knowledgeable in his field, but he was very easy to communicate with. David had our backs throughout the entire home loan process, as he was always available and willing to answer questions, along with talk us through whatever stage of the loan process we were in. He made sure he did everything he could to provide us with a competitive interest rate, as well as educate us about our home loan. David has an amazing work ethic and went above and beyond for us to ensure our needs were being met. We will definitely be using David down the road when its that time for our family to buy again.
