"I first met Eric at a workshop put on by my employer, and though home ownership was a definite goal of ours, we thought that it would be far off in the future, due to some past mistakes and credit challenges. Thanks to Eric, though, we were able to realize our dreams far sooner than we would have imagined--he and his team gave us a list of fairly simple recommendations that were actually easy to carry out, and he had us ready for pre-approval within a month! Our situation was relatively complicated, because though we had never bought a home before, I had inherited a property, which complicated our status as first-time home buyers. Eric and his entire team were so patient, though, and Eric was able to get us qualified as first-time Maryland buyers, so that we could enjoy a superbly low interest rate and several other perks through a USDA loan. Everyone I met throughout this process, from our realtor to the insurance agency to our closing attorney, vouched for Eric and his team's professionalism, and it became very clear to my husband and I that First Home Mortgage is the best in the business. No matter what the question, Eric, Alex, or Freida were able to get back to us quickly, and though all of this was completely foreign territory for me, the team walked me through each step to help make the process less intimidating. I never felt like my questions were silly (even though I'm sure some of them were), nor did I ever feel that the office was too busy to cater to my needs. I am thankful for Eric's knowledge, dedication, and commitment to his clients. We now have a beautiful, safe home in which to raise our children for years to come."

"He does an exceptional job at First Home Mortgage. His finger is on the pulse of the latest rates, programs to help with down payments, different types of loans and financial aid that may be available to those who qualify, just to name a few. Eric was available to me for any question or concern that I might of had and he has never failed to respond to my phone calls, emails, or texts - no matter the time of day or day of the week! My experience in applying for and securing my loan was such a positive experience that I will recommend First Home Mortgage and Eric Short to anyone I know who is in the market to buy a home. As Eric has told me on multiple occasions, he is always available to me now and in the future should I have any questions or concerns. He is also going to keep me informed when the interest rates go down so I can refinance and save more money each month making my mortgage payment. A co-worker of mine recommended Eric and First Home to me 5 years ago when I first started out and then decided to rent since I was under such a tight time constraint. I'm so grateful she refered him. I'll never forgot how enthusiastic and dedicated he is to trying to help me find a great home. "
