Kevan Elcock

Mortgage Loan Officer

Kevan Elcock is an experienced Mortgage Loan Officer who joined the John Z Home Loan Team of AmeriFirst Financial in January 2022. Kevan, a Chicago native, earned the opportunity to attend college in western Colorado to play baseball on academic and athletic scholarships. While studying at Mesa State, Kevan obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology. After meeting his college sweetheart and starting a family of his own, Kevan felt it would be best to move back to Arizona to be closer to his immediate family.

After moving back to the valley of the sun, Kevan began his post-college career as a middle-school science teacher in Chandler. After his wife, Isa, became a successful local real estate agent, Kevan felt it was time to dip his hands into the Arizona market by obtaining his own mortgage license. By gaining valuable experience with other mortgage companies, Kevan was ready to take his experience to the next level. Kevan is passionate about helping others and providing excellent communication from start to finish for both his clients and partners.

Outside the office, you will catch Kevan enjoying all sorts of outdoor activities. Particularly, fishing in nearby lakes, playing on numerous golf courses Arizona has to offer, and spending time with his family in Queen Creek.

    John and his team were excellent! This was our second time using them. The first was for a cash-out re-if, this time around was a loan for a home purchase. They made it so easy! Super friendly and there every step of the way with us. Thank you, John and team!

    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.

    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.

    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.
