    Refinancing my house after my divorce had its share of challenges but they worked very hard to make sure we got it done.

    From the very first phone call until my loan funded, the process was smooth and painless. It seemed to be over in record time. Great communication and service by Mike Swetech and Howard Kim, they make a great team. I was very satisfied with their process and constant communication and updates. I recommend them for your refinance or if you need cash, they will find you the best deal... Read More

    Thank you First Direct Lending!

    About 2 years ago my husband was laid off from a job he held for 15 years. We have 2 children and his job was our main support system. As you can imagine we struggled financially and both of our credit scores plummeted. He has a great new job now and we felt like we were recovering but our low credit scores haunted us. I knew the value in our home and that a refinance could change our lives and our future. I began looking into it and we began getting rejected by so many companies. We thought no one could help us. Then we received a call form First Direct Lending. I talked to Jason Jackson who gave us the first light of hope we had in a very long time. He saw that we just needed a chance to succeed and from then on he worked so hard for us to help us through the whole process. As we continued through our loan processor Laura Noriega also got involved. Jason and Laura made a great team and kept us informed every step of the way. It just kept getting better and better. Not only did they work with our low credit scores but we also got a very good rate. We closed our refinance within 30 days. I can't Thank Jason and Laura enough for their hard work. I will always recommend First Direct Lending to anyone I know!... Read More

    I would highly recommend First Direct Lending to friends and family. The ease of not having to run all over the place for signing papers etc. All of my questions were answered quickly and professionally, Charlene McFadden and her team set up the appraisal, and final signing of the loan documents with a Notary

    I just recently got a home refinance loan through first direct lending. The process was very efficient and effective. I'm very pleased with level of professionalism and understanding from the loan officers and loan processors. I really will use this company again for my future home loan needs.

    Ryan was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. Never was I unable to get hold of him or felt I wasn't getting information from him. Top Notch!

    Very good process overall from start to finish. The timeline went as promised and the closing was extremely smooth. Both Ryan Matzen and Sabrina Schaeffer were a pleasure to work with. Will definitely recommend First Direct Lending to friends!
