Allan's Reviews

Buying - Towson, Maryland October 2018
"Friendly, approachable, more helpful than I expected. Your reminders of what and when to post forms, and figures, and how to e-sign as well as the instructions for various entries was extremely helpful and appreciated. For as complex as the process is (was) it moved very smoothly thanks to Alan and his staff. We are moving in! "
Buying - Phoenix, Maryland November 2018
"Great guy, super efficient and very responsive. "
Buying - Baltimore, Maryland December 2018
"I was surprised with the process. I know some of this is outside your control, Feds, but it was still a little odd to me. I had done a couple prior mortgages and several Refi's and this seemed to be the most chaotic. I was also surprised that putting almost 2 points down on a mortgage would only reduce interest by a quarter point. "
Buying - Pylesville, Maryland December 2018

"Allan & Team were incredibly efficient and communicative throughout the entire process. We had a very rough experience with a different company for last home purchase and were honestly a bit curious if all of the experiences were like that, but the First Home Team blew us away with their customer service, professionalism, and ability to weather some odd circumstances towards the end of the settlement. We would highly recommend working with their team -- it will make your life a whole lot easier in what can be a very stressful and anxious time."

Refinance - Towson, Maryland October 2020
Refinance - Baltimore, Maryland October 2020
"Allan and his team were very responsive and took care of me. My sale and purchase went relatively smoothly, despite last minute issues that came up and the challenges of lenders being busier than ever. There were some issues with loose ends like getting my insurance check to the correct place, but I believe this was an issue on the title company's side and not First Home. The only thing I wish had been done a little better was the communication about who all was on team that I would be interacting with. At many points, I wasn't sure who the person emailing me was, what their role in the process was, and what questions I should ask them as opposed to someone else. That was fairly confusing, but everyone was very helpful regardless and they quickly included whoever was relevant when I asked questions that should have been directed elsewhere."
