    AWESOME EXPERIENCE FOR FIRST TIME HOME BUYER!!!

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    I contacted Gerry Gress through word of mouth. I sent him an email asking some information before committing. He told me what I needed to do. I told him to get me pre-qualified and he told me what I should do to help my credit increase to get a better rate. I did just as he said and within a month of contacting him I found my home and I'm waiting to close and move in. Gerry was great!!! id recommend to everyone. He was very attentive to my needs. He also returned calls and went to bat for me with the listing agent after rejecting my initial offer. AWESOME GUY!

    Ryan Jones

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Ryan Jones with First Choice mortgage service did an outstanding job for us. We are self employed and had tried to obtain a loan with several different lenders. Ryan was the only one willing to do the extra work it took to close our loan. Ryan always returned phone calls and emails promptly and kept us informed about the progress of our loan. Great rate, No fees (Costco program) and fantastic service.

    Superb Service

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    We were denied a VA loan by Texas Lending so we applied to Lending Tree. I was contacted by Zach Sediqzad from First choice Lending and we were approved for a VA loan within 10 days!! I highly recommend FCB to everyone. The level of professionalism is outstanding, becasue we were under contract our loan was expedited so that we would meet our closing date.ey We felt as if we were their only clients. FCB is the only lender we will every use.

    Stay away from first choice

    Rep had no idea regarding VA loans and disabled vets applying for loan. Even when pointed in the right direction for the info, he didn't understand it and how it works for a 100% disabled vet.

    Simple and Almost Painless

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    We worked with David from Scottsdale, AZ office. Just over one month to process and close. David was very helpful from the start and put up with my impatient requests and follow-ups with great professionalism. He even managed to stay professional when, again due to my impatience, I had contacted someone at the corporate level for a status on the loan when I couldn’t reach David. When I pointed out a fee discrepancy he contacted his supervisor and had the amount adjusted quickly. As I stated in the title, “Almost Painless”. The only concern was with the enormous about of paperwork that had to be signed and faxed. It appears the “underwriter” needed to know every aspect of my life with the possible exception of needing my blood type. Once we had all the papers submitted we again had to sign, what appeared to be, originals of everything we had already signed and faxed previously. Overall experience was good considering we were financing a major part of our lives away. I would recommend First Choice to co-workers or friends if they needed financial assistance in the future.

    very pleased

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    This lender was very thorough and verbal contact was very good, enough but not too much. I decided to wait a while before I proceed with the loan, but I will definitely go back to First Choice Bank when I'm ready to do the loan. Buffer
