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

I just wanted to take a moment to say “THANK YOU”!! You and your team made the purchase of my new home an easy and pleasant experience. Every step went smoothly! This speaks to the excellent job you and every member of your team perform on a daily basis. Although I know you and your team handle multiple loan processes on any given day, I felt that every member of your team was always available to assist me at any given time with any questions that I may have had. You have the best loan processing team!!!

- Tammy T.

Whitney was instrumental in obtaining a pre-qualification for my home loan. I have never seen or experienced a more efficient closing process after I made an offer on my home. In three words I would describe my dealings with Whitney: Smooth as Silk.

- Kyle A.

The entire staff was extremely kind and professional. I could reach out to them at any time of the day and always received prompt and timely answers to my questions. This was my first mortgage, and I will definitely come back to them in the future!

- Clinton B.

We cannot thank Jeffery and the team (Etmar and Leann) at First Heritage enough for making this process so super easy for us to understand. Jeffrey and the team are the best; they answered all of our questions. Jeffrey made sure we were comfortable throughout the entire process by keeping us updated with each steps and what to expect next. I will definitely recommend Jeffrey (who is open, easy-going, reliable and expert) and the team @ First Heritage without any hesitation. So thankful we trusted our first home purchasing financing with Jeffrey and the team. We really appreciate you and Susan (Real Estate agent) for all the supports throughout the process. Thank you!!!

- Richard M.

We were uncertain of our financing options when it came to our second mortgage. Jake was not only extremely helpful, he was thorough. We feel like we made the right decision for our family, because we were informed of all of our options. If you are looking for a lender who will engage 100% with your home process, Jake is your guy.

- Aaron H.

Scott & Team, I just wanted to send out a very BIG Thank You to all of you. This has been a great experience with you all from beginning to finish and Barbara and I are very happy with the new house. Thanks again and take care!

- Darrin & Barbara

[The] Jacobs Team has helped us with couple loans over the past few years and we have always been very pleased with their services.  Their team is extremely helpful and efficient – all questions are answered within minutes.  Very smooth process from initial application through closing.  Absolutely loved working with Will and Nancy!  Would not go anywhere else for mortgage financing.

- Mayya S.

Aaron and his  team were terrific with helping me getting all the info  together and on time. They  are good with allowing you time to get all your documents together.

- Teresa P.

When my husband and I decided that it was time to buy our first home we were nervous to say the least about the whole process. That was until we were referred to Jim. Jim was awesome at explaining exactly what we needed to do throughout the whole process and made our first time home buying experience a great one. He worked with us every step of the way and was always there to answer any questions we had. He made sure we fully understood the process and guided us confidently into our new home. We are forever grateful to Jim for making this process the smoothest it could possibly go. If anyone asked me who they should go to I would definitely recommend Jim Boone to ANYONE!

- Daryl & Jhanel H.

I am a first-time homebuyer and young (26 years old). This was not only my first mortgage, but the first loan I have ever taken out (save for credit cards/student loans). My loan application was a little tricky as I just switched from a 1099 worker to a W2 wage earner two months before my loan closed. Chris and Kiara were there 100% of the time and answered every question I had quickly and let me know ASAP what additional documentation was needed. Not only would I recommend First Heritage, but the dream team of Chris and Kiara was great.

- Maxwell C.

Mike was extremely knowledgeable about the lending process. He helped us lock-in the lowest rate. He was very transparent with everything that we were signing. We were very grateful for Mike’s assistance during our home buying process.

- Julia

Jeffrey and his team are AMAZING!! From the moment I spoke to Jeffrey I felt a sense of honesty. He is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and responsive. We put our trust in Jeffrey and he most definitely came through for us. We can’t thank him and his team enough for their patience as well as treating us as people rather than just home loan customers. Jeffrey most definitely stands above the rest and I will recommend him to every person I know who is in need of financing.

- Amy Y.

As a small business owner, my loan process is complex with the need for many supporting documents. The team was extremely helpful throughout the process and made it as easy as it could be. I offer a strong recommendation for Lee and First Heritage Mortgage.

- Mark C.

As Sergeant Major in the U.S. Army, my first thought was to start the mortgage process with a bank that I had previously used, and is well known for working with the military. Thank God I did not! My experience with First Heritage was far superior than my previous mortgage experiences with military friendly banks. Everything is streamlined, and First Heritage makes you feel like you are their only customer. I could reach my loan officer around the clock and he even would respond to text messages after office hours when I needed additional information. I was completely blown away by the professionalism and attentiveness of everyone who facilitated the loan process. I never felt like I was in the dark or like my file was being neglected. First Heritage puts people first and the customer service that I received was simply amazing!!

- Sergeant Major

I do have to say that I did two refinances with you so apparently you’re doing something right!  And kudus to you, every question I had, and I had plenty, you were able to answer them promptly.

- Jeff J.

We highly recommend Mike. He has helped us on many occasions and we’ve saved quite a bit of money. He is a very honest man that would work for your best interest. Give him a call.

- Sal & Marilyn G.

Jeanne was great – thorough, responsive, and took her time in explaining everything to a first time home buyer. Thanks for making the experience easy.

- Kurt M.

Tom, we want to thank you and all your staff for the excellent service that all of you have provided. As four years ago, you gave us the best available options and definitely you will continue to be our first option in any future mortgage transaction.

- Pedro and Paola

Michael Travis is the consummate professional.  He followed the market and called me on two separate occasions to take advantage of record low rates and refinance my house.  Thanks Mike, I’m still sitting on a rate that is the record low for a 30 year fixed.
