I love getting emails like this one from a new homebuyer...... :) Thank you Patty for your very nice email! It has been a pleasure serving you! "Linda was very nice and was quite impressed that you had gone over the closing document with me beforehand. She says that is never done and I was lucky to get that service--so kudos to you. Yes, you and Diane were just great. I couldn't have asked for anymore patience through this whole process. Be assured, I will be happy to recommend your services to anyone I know who needs to get a loan." (from Patty S.) Diana Eklund- West USA Realty

Dear Mr. Castillo (Sales Manager at AmeriFirst Financial, Inc.) I just wanted to tell you what a pleasant experience it has been working with Karen Jones. She was the lending agent for my first listing (Ritter/LaPeter file). Karen was thorough, responsive, kind, patient and helpful. Knowledge, diligence and patience are just a few of her assets. Being that I am new, she has been such an asset to me, helpful in my learning cure. Karen never makes me feel incompetent, even when some of my questions are elementary. Your office is quite a distance for me, but Karen's strengths in lending have made her services invaluable. It has been such a pleasure working with her. I very much appreciate the help with marketing as well. What a blessing! Your company is so very fortunate to have her on your team. Many thanks! Diana Eklund Realtor 623.693.2983 Melissa Cox Realty

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. I can't say how much I truly appreciate all your help and professionalism. You made this experience so easy, and I am still surprised that there were no speed bumps or major hurdles. Compared to our first home buying experience, this time was much more efficient and I never once felt like I didn't have all the information or know where we were at in the loan process. You take pride in your job and it was very clear to see from the beginning that I was in good hands. Have a great day Karen and thank you again for everything.

I know you’re the loan advisor who always goes the distance for her clients no matter what….including tracking down a Fed Ex package plopped in a UPS receptacle!! Wow – can’t think of anyone else who’s ever done that! In the meantime, I remain happy to recommend you to clients whenever the opportunity arises and confident in your abilities to get the job done!

I can not thank Karen enough for the hard work and dedication that she put into completing this transaction. If it were not for her problem solving and out of the box thinking we would still be working on closing this transaction. I highly recommend her, your clients will be very well taken care of and she will keep you informed throughout the entire process. Thank you again Karen!

This letter of appreciation comes from our hearts. You have been a key factor in helping us to achieve our goal. When we started looking for a bigger house for our ever growing family, we were not sure if we would qualify in this very tough market and economy. Our agent, Millie Stamey, told us she would get us to the best lender she knew. At first we thought she was just saying this to make us feel comfortable. In our 1st meeting with Karen, she told us she believed we could complete the process even though we had some challenges to overcome. She explained in detail what we needed to do and made herself available, both through phone and email contact for any questions we had. She promised us she would be there for us every step of the way and she was. She has many years experience in her field and knows what to expect and anticipate in order for the process to move smoothly. We didn't have any delays in the process because Karen was on top of everything and let us know everything we needed to do before we needed to do it. I believe if she thought we didn't have a chance, she would have told us from the start and then she would have educated us on what we needed to do in order to qualify for a home loan. Karen went above and beyond in order to make sure we did everything we needed to do to have a very positive outcome. She was in the process of retiring from her position for Bank of America, in fact she actually retired before our loan was completed, but stayed in contact with all the ancillary departments and with us to make sure our loan was completed. Karen is truly the best at what she does and if she says she can make it happen, she will. We are now living in our new home. We are very satisfied with the process, it really did run smoothly. Thank you for helping us make our dream home possible.
