    Fast and Efficient

    Lauren was great to work with, although I did not talk with her as much as my submission coordinator. However, she was very knowledgeable and efficient in processing my mortgage loan.

    What I thought was impossible......

    (0) (0)
    I can't say enough how wonderful this company is. My loan submission officer, Brandon Lavoie, was right there with me every step of the process. I had concerns about my ability to even qualify for a mortgage loan, as well as buying my first home by myself. He always had the answers I needed, and if he didn't, he found them for me. We worked so well together I felt like I knew him before the process was complete and we've only spoken on the phone! I am in south Alabama so I was somewhat skeptical about working with a company so far away, but Brandon eased those fears and went above and beyond to make sure I understood and felt comfortable. Even through hiccups and hurdles, he calmed my nerves and was ALWAYS prepared with plan B. My realtor was also so impressed with Brandon and 1st Alliance that she intends to refer clients to them as much as possible from here on out. If you are looking for a mortgage company who will go out of their way to ensure you get the financing you need, quickly, correctly, and without delays, with great customer service to boot, call 1st Alliance. You will not regret it! Thank you Brandon and the entire team for helping me start over and get into MY new home!... Read More

    Wilbert is the best!

    (0) (0)
    I've worked in the customer service industry my entire career. The best way to explain 1st Alliance would be; if I owned my own customer service company I would want it completely staffed with Wilbert Vazquezes. Wilbert didn't just make a life long customer out of me, he made a friend. From beginning to end, this was the single best customer experience of my life. Thank you just falls short! ... Read More

    Great Turnaround Time

    We never spoke directly to Samantha, however she was extremely responsive. She got us a conditional approval within 3 days of submitting the paperwork, and a final approval within 1 day.

    Awesome Experience

    (0) (0)
    My wife and I found 1st Alliance Lending in August of 2016. After reviewing our credit scores with Crystal we decided to put off applying for the mortgage to increase our credit scores. Crystal provided us with several suggestions to help boost our scores and checked in with us every month to see where we stood and if she could offer any more advice. In December, we began working with Seth Tostevin. Seth got us pre-approved for the mortgage. Seth also provided us with a list of documents that we would need to provide him once we had an offer accepted. In addition, Seth advised us to ask for seller concessions to help with the closing costs. We had an offer accepted just before Christmas. We received a conditional approval by the end of the first week of January. We closed on our house on February 10th. We were able to close sooner, however the seller had to complete some repairs on the house in order for it to pass FHA appraisal. Throughout the entire process Seth, and all of the employees at 1st Alliance were very courteous and responsive. In most instances we received a response to our questions within the hour, and never did we have a question that was not answered within one day. If you are looking to buy your first home I would HIGHLY recommend 1st Alliance Lending... Read More

    Best Company Ever !!!!!!!!

    I had been very lucky to have Alexis Feliciano working with me on my loan application, she was there for me trough out the whole process always staying on top of everything and always making me feel hopeful. If I could give 1st Alliance 10 stars instead of 5 I would do it in a heart beet. Great thanks to the whole team at 1st Alaiance for making our dreams come trough.... Read More

    BEST COMPANY I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH!

    (0) (0)
    I had probably one of the hardest cases 1st Alliance has seen. From bankruptcies, to evictions, to only having old W-2's from 2007,because I stopped working until last year to be a stay at home mother. I have had a wonderful experience with 1st Alliance and Rylan Collins(My Submissions coordinator)! There were many hiccups but he always found a solution to my problems. I can't thank them for this new life experience I will now be living. I went through many places telling me "No" and I "would never be able to get a home loan," until I came upon this amazing company. PLEASE if you don't feel like you can get a home loan because of your past history, TRY 1ST ALLIANCE!! They gave a new beginning to mine and my children's lives! Thank you!... Read More

    They have made this whole process so much easier than I heard it was going to be. I read so many nightmare stories online about the mortgage process but I can't believe how easy they made it. Thank you so much Amina Riaz for picking up my file and helping me throughout the process. My realtor was so impressed with you that she is referring her future clients to you also. Again thanks to all at your company.... Read More
