"Jake went above and beyond to make the entire mortgage process work for us. He took the time to explain everything clearly, was able to turn around documents incredibly quickly, and his team was thorough to make sure we didn't hit any snags when we went to underwriting. Jake and his whole team were outstanding to work with, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage broker."

"My wife and I first met Jake Ryon when we were researching finance. He came highly recommended by our realtor, and my wife and I knew almost instantly upon first connecting with him that we wanted to work more with him and his team at First Home Mortgage. Our situation was a bit unique in that we needed to move very quickly. Jake and his colleagues at First Home Mortgage were incredibly responsive and fast-moving, though always willing to take the time to answer any questions we had or explain aspects of the financing of which we were uncertain. Happenstanically, I had Jake's business card on my desk at work when a colleague of mine mentioned she had spoken to Jake about a pre-approval for a condo she was thinking about buying. She didn't get a chance to ask me how I liked working with Jake because I told her that one of the best decisions she would make in purchasing a home was working with Jake and the team at First Home Mortgage. Thanks again, guys."
Buying - Hyattsville, Maryland November 2019

"I first worked with Jake when I purchased my first home. I went back to Jake for my mortgage refinance for three reasons. 1) He always takes the time to answer any questions, responds to messages and emails within hours if not immediately 2) He explains everything. If you are new to the process of purchasing a home or refinancing one he doesn't wait for questions, he makes sure you know what everything means and walks you through the process 3) He listens. Jake is genuine in his interest in your situation and makes sure any financial scenario matches your family's plans for the future. In short, no one matches Jake's customer service."

They were also constantly in contact, even returning emails on weekend nights."
