The John Z Home Loan Team did a great job keeping me informed as my loan process progressed. They were always available to answer all of my questions and made my home loan process seem less.

Incredibly Attentive and Timely

John and the team were absolutely wonderful. Incredibly attentive and timely with everything they did, and took the time to ensure we understood everything in the mortgage lending process. My wife and I couldn’t thank them enough for working with us and getting us into our dream home!

Thank You for all your Effort.

The whole team was a huge help they pushed us on a lot of things that needed to be done but finally, after jumping through the hoops it was all worth it. Not often do you really hear of a VA loan closing in 2 weeks. So for all of the effort and struggle thank you all for your help.

Second finance/refinance with the John Z team and it came together perfectly. Tyler kept us involved and informed every step of the way, even making sure that the title company and notary had all the details squared away on the Friday before closing (It’s amazing how many lenders don’t pay attention to details like these). This is a great outfit.

Dream come true!

Talk about hard working and thorough. I never knew I would like personalized attention until AmeriFirst helped us with our VA Home loan. John and Maria were there along the entire process. They will tell you first hand, things got sticky and they stuck their necks for us to ensure that we got the home of our dreams.
