Founded in 1996, First Heritage Mortgage was designed to be the premier source of mortgage financing in the Washington DC metro area. By working hard to prove ourselves on every loan, we have gained a reputation for our ability to provide innovative mortgage solutions, customized to the unique needs of each borrower.
Helping Our Clients Since 1996
As one of the Washington DC area’s largest privately-owned mortgage companies, First Heritage Mortgage is a direct lender, meaning we control every aspect of the mortgage process from start to finish. Our borrowers’ loans are processed, underwritten, and closed in a local First Heritage Mortgage office. This translates to a speedy and accurate delivery of our services, removing much of the stress from the process.
Our loan officers average over 15 years of mortgage banking experience. Let the knowledge and expertise they have acquired over the years benefit you!
We love our jobs because we help change people’s lives. Learn more about our company, our culture, and opportunities to join our growing legacy of success.
We are honored to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® to help fund life-saving health care, education, and research for children in the communities in which we serve.
A Sampling of Our Awards & Honors
Take it From Our Customers
I was impressed that there were no “last minute” surprises. Having closed on several other properties where that occurred, I kept waiting for something like that to happen here. And it never did. Things happened when they were scheduled to happen and without any incident. It was a very smooth transaction.

I was very impressed with Vivian Daniel’s professionalism and responsiveness. I submitted an application over 10 months ago while our home was being built. Whenever I had a question, needed more clarity, or simply to weigh options Vivian was always a phone call or email away. Vivian comes highly recommended by our family because of her high job knowledge, customer service, and her ability to relate to customers who don’t deal with the mortgage industry every day. She is an asset to your team!

Great working with this team. They navigated a difficult purchase with many moving pieces and responded quickly to questions and issues. We would work with them again.

My wife and I had a great experience with First Heritage. This was our first new construction purchase and between the builder (Stanley Martin) and First Heritage, we could not have asked for an easier process. Ms. Bidwell and Ms. Daniel were very attentive, responsive and knowledgeable and they turned what could have been a stressful event into a non-event. Could not have asked for a more dedicated team of loan officers.

Paul is extremely professional and responsive. I was able to reach Paul via email and his cell phone – something I really appreciate. Paul was instrumental in getting my loan through the gauntlet and to closing. I hope to do business with him again in the future and would recommend him to anybody looking for a loan – especially a renovation type loan.

Just a note of thanks for the 1.5 years of support to get our loan in place. We feel we have known you for years. You’ve been absolutely wonderful to work with. That was the best cold call we ever made. Without your help we couldn’t have done it.

I felt really special working with First Heritage Mortgage. They provided several loan options and I truly felt that they had my best interests in mind. It felt like a friend financing my home and not a cold institutional lender. I still get a monthly email from them and one around every holiday. That just makes you feel like you are a special customer.
