    Went Smoothly

    I recently used FirstBank for the first time. They contacted me about a reverse mortgage. I picked them because they are a bank and have a solid history. Other companies that contacted me were not banks, so I wasn't too comfortable working with them. The process went really smoothly! They were easy to deal with and made it easy for me. The person I worked with was really friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint is that they sold my loan off to another company. That was not in the closing statement and I wasn't made aware of that. I found it after I got the bill from the new company. It could just be a servicing company, but that was unclear. If it is unrelated to FirstBank, I would not be pleased. I also did pay an extra fee for that also and I was disappointed with that. But, other than that, everything was good... Read More

    Excellent service from a true professional

    I recently had the rare experience of dealing with a true professional in doing a Reverse Mortgage, by the name of Gregory Broomfield! Mr. Broomfield was very patiient in making sure that I thoroughly understood ALL of the pros and cons in doing this loan! He spent many hours explaining EVERYTHING related to the process and put no pressure on me whatsoever! I would recommend this to anyone in the senior years of life, based on the kind and Christian manner in which he handled this transaction! First Bank is fortunate to have an employee of such a high caliber who was truly a blessing to me... Read More

    I was turned down by others, but not here

    I was told I wouldn't qualify for a reverse mortgage by other lenders, and I'd given up. But somehow I found my way here, and Greg Bloomfield saw me through. He is a pleasure to work with. He answers the phone when you call and when he doesn't, he returns the call very quickly. He stays in touch and keeps you apprised of what is going on. He methodically took me from start to finish. He said he could get me approved, and he did. It has changed my life.... Read More

    Why Did We Wait So Long.....

    Stuart Landman was wonderful: professional, patient and ALWAYS returned phone calls the same day...what a concept. The whole process took about 5-6 weeks. We are very happy we did this. We highly recommend First Bank and Stuart to anyone.
