"When I was introduced to Mr. Eigenbroden, I was entering the market as a first time buyer. Naturally,my needs were a bit different and I had loads of questions. Before he sent me my pre-approval letter, he called to speak with me about what it meant and what could change. He made himself available to me at pretty much any hour via email and texts. He was very responsive and knowledgeable. He's also very straightforward. I explained to him what my expectations were in terms of closing time and other particulars. He said he would meet those expectations but he surpassed them. I closed so quickly my realtor and the seller of course were excited about that. But as a buyer I appreciated being walked through the process in a succinct yet thorough fashion. From pre-approval to closing- the journey was so seamless and I consider myself lucky because I've heard horror stories. I recommend him to anyone in the market. Everything was handled electronically expediently and securely :)"

"Mark was amazing to work with. We're first time homebuyers (and this was our first offer on a home) and he went out of his way to explain every little detail to us. We also negotiated a 20 day closing, which required a lot of work on Mark's part, and he made it as easy as possible for us. Throughout the entire process he treated us like family and even bought us a housewarming gift on signing day. We would 100% recommend our friends to work with him. "

"I could not have closed on my first home without Mark! Mark and his team went above and beyond for me on this transaction. He handled my very tight turn around time with ease and was always available for me when I had questions (and I had plenty), even when he was away from the office, which I greatly appreciated! He and his team handled many last-minute scrambles with the seller and worked tirelessly to make sure that I could close before my lease (and my down payment assistance, for that matter) expired. Mark is incredibly knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. I went through a couple offers on properties before my final purchase and Mark was there to help with each one, often coordinating with my agent behind the scenes. I felt supported throughout the entire process. Thanks to Mark and the tireless efforts of his team, I am now a proud home owner! I would encourage you to consider Mark and First Home Mortgage for your home purchase."

"Mark is very honest, responsive, and proactive every step of the way from finding you the right loan to helping you navigate the closing process, which was challenging this year, given the pandemic restrictions on interacting in person. He helped it go VERY smoothly. All that and he's very friendly and pleasant to work with! Couldn't have asked for more!"

"Mark is great. I have really enjoyed my borrowing experience with him. He's very responsive, patient, and takes time to explain things to me. I could not be happier to have found Mark and work with him on my mortgage."
Refinance - Washington, District of Columbia May 2020
"First Home and Mark were helpful in the process of refinancing and when an error was made, an effort was made to compensate me for that mistake. Still, the lawyer at the title company suggested that more was required and to his mind a follow-up, in-writing confirmation of the title's being put in my and my wife's name would happen. Back and forth on the other side of proceeding with the closure, that in writing statement of our ability to know that the mortgage company explicitly noted the freedom to have my wife's name was not stated in any more clear manner than an assurance that we were able to do this without the said written confirmation. That leaves me with a sense of disappointment and uncertainty that I shouldn't have regardless of the half point that I was offered as compensation at the time of closing. It could have been made clearer to me when I was agreeing to proceed that this would be the full consequence of the error."

"During my search for a lender as a first-time homebuyer, I was unsure of the homebuying process and my preapproval qualifications. I saw Mark's profile online through the First Home Mortgage website and contacted him for a preapproval letter on a home I was interested in. Mark contacted me back the same day and explained the entire homebuying process to me, walked me through the loan qualifications, and provided me with a preapproval letter (after verification of my credit) that had a breakdown of all expenses. I received other loan offers from other lenders; however, Mark's customer service exceeded my expectation and I decided that I would use him from that point forward as my lender. Throughout my experience working with Mark, he showed me that his priority was the interest of his clients. He made sure the process of putting down an offer and closing on a home was smooth for me and that I was satisfied with what I was purchasing. He kept in constant touch and provided me with suggestions and workarounds if any issues came up. There was never a time where I did not feel like I could reach out to Mark if I had questions or if there was something I needed from him. Even my relator commented that Mark was an excellent lender to work with based on her interactions with him and that she was able to get everything she needed from him quickly and accurately. I have no doubt that she will recommend his name to her clients who do not have a lender because he made the process seamless for her. When I put down an offer on a home, Mark was able to offer that we could close on the home in 21 days, (despite the fact that we were in the middle of a pandemic and the average time to close on a home was 64 days) and I know that was the biggest factor for why my offer on the home was accepted. During the 21 days, everything was completed on time from our end and we were ready to close. Prior to closing, a title issue came up from the seller's end; however, Mark worked closely with the title company, the seller, and my relator to resolve the issue so I could close as quickly as possible. I know Mark put a lot of time and effort in resolving the title issue when it was not something he had to do. He could have denied the loan and I would have restarted my home search but he worked closely with me, my relator, and my title company to find a viable solution to the title issue so I could purchase the home I wanted. I know for a fact that other lenders or companies would not have gone the extra mile for their clients that Mark and First Home Mortgage did for me. It was by sheer luck that I ran across Mark's name during my search for lenders, but I consider myself fortunate that I did. I cannot thank Mark enough for everything he has done and for all of his effort in closing my home in a timely manner. I wanted to take the time to show my appreciation and to highlight Mark's excellent customer service and dedication to his clients. I have already recommended Mark and First Home Mortgage to other potential homebuyers since I have full confidence in the company and in each lenders' ability to provide an excellent homebuying experience for them. I normally do not recommend specific people or companies since I set high standards in the services I receive, but Mark by far surpassed my expectations. It is because of employees like him that make your company's reputation distinguishable. Again, I cannot thank Mark enough for everything he did and I will work with him and First Home Mortgage in the future if I ever decide to purchase another home."

He makes himself available via email and phone for any questions or concerns you have. Oh, I also liked that he provided me financing options to fit my needs.
