"A simple google search on a Sunday afternoon led me to Mr. Michael Basch and it was the best decision ever. Michael is the James Bond of the mortgage loan officers. His attention to detail at each step is commendable. He recently assisted me with refinancing my house. He was able to drop my rate, drop my PMI off and lower my payment. He is an excellent communicator and he delivered more than he promised. He made the refinancing process extremely easy, stress free and was able to close my file in three weeks . I am extremely pleased with him and Amanda Chronister, the loan processor (she is a MVP!). Mr. Basch is very knowledgable about the mortgage guidelines and will meticulously look at your file to tailor a package that best suits your financial needs. I highly recommend Michael Basch and First Home Mortgage to anyone who is interested in refinancing or purchasing a home. Their team will make the process extremely smooth for you. My only regret is that I didn't find them sooner. Thank you Michael and Amanda for providing me the top notch service for my refinance. I am forever grateful to you both. "
Refinance - Hanover, Maryland April 2021
"This was my first home purchase. I had a lot of fear and anxiety about making this kind of a financial commitment. Michael really was the guiding beacon. I could not have had better luck in selecting him to go on this journey with me. He was prompt on keeping me informed. Even my realtor commented what a pleasant surprise he was in keeping everyone informed. He was available to answer any question I had, and on the rare occasion he was unable to answer he would call me right back. I highly recommend Michael to anyone to help guide them through their home buying adventure with confidence. For me, he turned a fearful experience into a happy one. "

"I attended a lunch and learn seminar that Michael and realtor were putting on. The lunch and learn was extremely informational and set me on a better path while searching for a home. I went through about 5 or 6 different houses with offers to each, and every time Michael was extremely responsive, positive, and helpful in every way possible. Finally after just about a year later, I closed on my first home. Beyond thankful for the above and beyond effort Michael has put in to this process. He is very knowledgable and stays up to date with all relavant news. Would 10/10 recommend him and I will definitely be using Michael on the my next house!"
