"I worked with Ryan Vitielliss and Ryan Paquin (most often with Ryan V.). Both were extremely patient with me as I asked questions, weighed options and compared companies throughout a 6 month process. I could not have asked for better support and a more customer-service oriented team to work with. Thank you both!"

"First Home asked for items and then didn't review what I sent and asked again for things I had already delivered. The process was so long and drawn out I would have liked to walk away. I should have gone with another company. The only reason I gave a one star was because zero stars wasn't possible. I will not be recommending first home. "

Buying - Great Mills, Maryland June 2018
"This feedback is purely constructive and is being provided with the hopes of helping improvement in the future.* I truthfully was frustrated and confused through most of the home buying process. As a first time home buyer, I chose First Home Mortgage because the name made me think there would be a sense of education and guidance through a process I knew nothing about. Unfortunately, I felt there was a lack of communication insteadÉ multiple channels of communication from multiple people and I found it to be very overwhelming. It would have been helpful to receive a sheet with everyone's name É their role in the process - I ended up creating this sheet for myself to stay organized. It would also have been helpful to receive a more in-depth explanation upfront of what to expect throughout the process. I only heard from Ryan Paquin directly a handful of times. I heard more from other members of his team, and was therefore, confused about who to call when I had a question."

"Ryan was great to work with. Whenever I had a question I was able to call or email and he would personally get back in touch with me. Ryan V was also a great asset. I called him almost daily in the beginning of he mortgage process, at times asking the same questions for more clarification. He answered my questions each time and never seemed bothered by me. First Home Mortgage was very well versed in helping me get the best mortgage rate. They were able to inform me of several options and allowed me to decide what option I wanted to use. I would recommend them in the future and definitely use them again if I ever choose to purchase another home. "

"Ryan and the team at First Home Mortgage helped make my family's dream of home ownership a reality. Initially, I attended a First Time Homebuyers seminar run by Ryan in partnership with a local realtor. The seminar was informative and Ryan did a great job detailing the process of what is required when purchasing a home. He shared information about different programs for first-time buyers that renewed my confidence in my family's ability to own our own home after renting for over a decade. After the seminar, I followed up with the team at First Home. I received excellent advice about what my husband and I needed to do to improve our credit scores and move forward with the homebuying process. We followed the advice exactly and within two months, we successfully qualified for financing. Although it took several additional months to find our dream home, the team at First Home was supportive and professional throughout the process. I received immediate responses to any emailed questions or concerns. Someone was always available to assist, even during the holiday season. We most appreciated the ease of completing our application and purchase process entirely electronically using the secure server and mail system. We never felt our personal or financial information would be compromised. Deadlines were always stated, restated, and very clear. Ms. Dixon did a phenomenal job processing our application and ensuring we were prepared for submission to underwriting. Within days, we received final loan approval. We closed on our new home within 35 days of our contract acceptance. I also want to mention that there were no surprises - what was stated in our pre-closing documents matched what was expected at closing. When I first met Ryan at the Homebuyer Seminar, he spoke about First Home's reputation and ability to close loans quickly with confidence. At the time, I thought he was being a bit bragadocious, but now I see that he was just stating facts. It is essential that you trust your lender and there was never a moment when we felt we could not do so. My husband and I cannot thank First Home enough for helping us achieve our goal and fulfill our dream! Thank you! "

Buying - Upper Marlboro, Maryland April 2019
"I honestly felt that things were not properly communicated about the closing cost, paperwork, and general mortgage process. Ryan was professional when I was able to speak with him, but I had to do follow up with other staff in the office. After inquiring repeatedly about my closing price, I had issues an hour before closing I had to go to the bank to obtain more money. Both myself and my realtor had difficulty contacting him to assist us that day. I would be hesitant in recommending FHM to family and friends. "

Refinance - Washington, District of Columbia August 2019
"Ryan was very receptive and helpful and quick to respond. The rest of my experience was not so great. The processor was difficult and communication was challenging. I eventually gave up dealing with her and turned to Ryan as often as possible. Ryan worked hard to make my loan happen. But with processing, requests to file for settlement were ignored, although it was strongly implied that it had happened. Secure, important, emails were sent to my brother on multiple occasions until I got angry enough that the problem was fixed. It was a much more frustrating process than necessary. I understand this is always a difficult process and I cannot express enough my gratitude for the work Ryan did on my behalf, but the frustration with processing made me an incredibly unhappy. My review is mixed because my experience was so uneven."
Buying - Hyattsville, Maryland August 2019
"I was hesitant to use a program because of all the hear say that programs take a really long time. Ryan was not long at all and is very knowledgeable about programs. He was very professional, speedy, and always kept my husband and I updated to what was going on. If we decide to purchase again no doubt in my mind we will only use Ryan."

"As a first time home buyer, I expected the process for purchasing a home to be a bear. This was not the case at all! Honestly I felt like I was on one of those HGTV shows with how quickly the process went! With Ryan Paquin in my corner, I don't think my experience would have been as easy and stress-free. He and his team kept me informed every step of the way. He was also able to recommend a handful of helpful programs to assist with first time home buying which helped immensely! He and his team are personable, professional and thorough. I have already recommended he and his team to friends! Thank you so much First home Mortgage! You helped me make my dreams a reality."

"I was not treated fairly and I believe Ryan and my realtor Chad Craig worked together to do illegally action behind my back. I will NEVER use First Home Mortgage again."
Buying - Capitol Heights, Maryland September 2019
"We locked in at a rate of 4.1% on a certain date which was documented by First Home Mortgage, which you all totally acknowledged but that was not the case on settlement day. When asked about correcting the error we was told if we wanted it changed that we wouldn't be able to settle that day. We was very disappointed because up until that point you were thorough in getting us to the table. In addition, we were told that that after already checking out of our hotel. That seemed a little unethical and callous. When it comes to dollars and cents; it matters. Although a little stressful, the experience would've been better if that hadn't happened. The Rogers"

Buying - Upper Marlboro, Maryland November 2019
"Ryan and his team were great. From the very beginning, you could tell that they weren't just a big box lender, but that they were committed to helping you achieve your goal of homeownership. I can talk about how knowledgeable and informative they were, but what stood out the most was how pleasant they were. They made you feel like you were part of a team. I could always call with any question or concern, and it always felt like I was talking to a friend. Of course they were knowledgeable and informative, and always made sure they kept me on task, but it was their humanity and level of care, that shined the brightest. And because of that, I'll always recommend the Paquin team, at First Home, to anyone looking to purchase a house."

"Ryan Paquin and his team are absolutely fantastic. He and his team were extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly and professional every step of the way.

They were knowledgeable, caring and highly skilled in mortgage products and services. The Paquin Team exudes excellent customer service, I was First in the entire process. I felt like I was the only client they had. They were intentional about communicating whether written or verbal (step by step process). I received emails and telephone calls throughout the process. My initial closing was a FHA Product 2017 and two years later, I decided that it was more cost effective for me to refinance to a conventional, each time I experienced the same staff and service. To sum up my experience amazing, amazing and amazing. Big Thanks to Ryan Paquin and The Entire Team!"

"Instead of one dedicated contact person or loan officer you must deal with up to 5 people only by email unless you call them. When you question processes your realtor is told you don't understand the process. Not true. I've bought 2 houses prior and had less paperwork and explaining of debt with one of those purchases being in the last year and the other 10 years prior. If you want a well explained, open process this is not my first choice mortgage company. We haven't moved so far into the digital age that human connection isn't appreciated. I felt like a bother and not a well-regarded client here."

"First Home Mortgage complete my family life in a very very big way, why because we have been trying with different lenders to get a loan to buy our home and we were getting the run a round, I work for retail and I interact with lots of people so I was talking to a customer one day and was Sharing my experience with trying to buy a house how difficult it was because my husband credit was not too good and these loan officers was giving us a hard time, so her recommended me to Ryan from First Home Mortgage, I call Ryan about 6am tell him my story, he listen and said to me" how much money do you have to put down I told him we start the process and in less than 4 months myself , my husband and our wonderful son is living in our own home. I would always recommend First Home Mortgage to anyone good or bad credit they would tell you exactly what to do trust me I'm living proof. PS. Excuse my grammar."
Buying - Capitol Heights, Maryland January 2020
"From my perspective, the instructions they provided were clear and they processed all of my submitted documents quickly and their calculations seemed accurate and thorough. Four stars instead of five, however, because of communications issues. They repeatedly did not keep my realtor in the loop, including providing me with documentation to sign that she had not approved or even seen, and that was actually hers to provide. They also created some chaos around closing by not checking with all parties before scheduling the closing date, and then not notifying all parties that the closing date they had originally scheduled had changed. I found out by accident when I called to confirm the date that it had moved, and my realtor had not been informed either. The other odd communication item is the automated emails that have Ryan's name on them, but are clearly not from a live person. They provided contradictory information to what the person handling my mortgage had told me, and were very confusing in terms of timing and topic, often not even applicable to my particular situation. That being said, the whole process went much more smoothly than I had expected, and they did a very good job lining up all the required documentation and appraisals and completing everything quickly and accurately."

He and his team reviewed what all the major banks were offering and gave me the best rates. They also broke down the numbers and even explained to me market conditions. Something that I really appreciated, when we were nearing closing, rates went down. Ryan Paquin gave me a call; I requested that he please lower the rate. He went back to his boss and let me have the revised lower rate; I was ecstatic. If you are looking for a mortgage, definitely consider Ryan Paquin and his team."

Buying - Felton, Delaware May 2020
"I had been an avid follower of Ryan since interacting with him in 2016/2017 and understanding what I needed to do with my credit to qualify. Fast forward to 2019/2020 and I built my credit and paid down my credit cards to purchase my first forever home. I was ecstatic that my realtor suggested him and his team because again I followed his blogs. Unfortunately, the excitement would be short lived because there were a lot of things miscommunicated to me and my partner by his staff assigned to us. I only had one interaction with Mr. Paquin after needing clarification about numbers given to me by his staff. Our entire process was very disorganized and there were moments of non-transparency during our initial phase that almost caused us not to be able to close on our home. I had to do a lot of getting the title company and the lender to talk via conference call. Overall, again I am happy I was able to purchase my first home but working with this team did take away from the ideal "first-home buying" experience as they assumed I knew lots of information outside of my home-buying classes."

His office is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I recommend him every chance I get."
Refinance - Bowie, Maryland August 2020
"Ryans team went above and beyond every step of the way. This was the 3rd company I tried to use, the first 2 fed me false hope with unreasonable and unvetted pre approvals. Ryan and Yancy did their due diligence to make sure everything was understood and within my actual budget. I'd recommend them to everyone."
Buying - Curtis Bay, Maryland August 2020
"The process in which I endured during my refinance was an absolute nightmare!! Information was relayed to me prior to really knowing the logistics, so a few times I was expecting an outcome that did not transpire. It was also told to me that Jul & Aug. would be free and I ended up being charged for Jul. I was told I would be reimbursed and that NEVER happened! I was also told that I would be refunded 3K from my escrow and that did not happen. In total I received $1,561.16 other than the new interest rate and my new mortgage amount was accurately relayed to me. I will not be doing business ever again."

"Response time was horrible. I would call, email, and leave messages and not hear back for days. If you couldn't spare the time to help me as a customer, you shouldn't have agreed to take on the loan. I had to stay in a hotel longer and cover the cost by myself for two additional days beyond the agreed upon closing date because Ryan and his team were negligent. They failed to file the appropriate paperwork with the VA which led to a series of delays, ultimately delaying closing and costing me more money. I would 1000% NEVER recommend frst home mortgage to anyone I care about, or even to anyone I don't care about. Horrible experience, and I'm so glad they sold my loan to a different provider so I don't have to deal with them EVER again. "

Before speaking with the First Home mortgage team, we really did not think we were in a position to afford a home. Ryan and his team worked with us to make this all possible. We couldn't have chosen a better place to go. We really appreciate you Ryan and the FHM team!"

"The overall experience could've been better when dealing with this team. There were many occasions where when I sent an inquiry, there was an extended time period where I would not receive a back and either myself or agent would have to make another attempt to reach Ryan/First Home, but when they needed information from me, they wanted a more speedy response. Ryan's generic emails that he sent to "touch base" were simply the same copy/paste message that he sent every time, and felt very transactional, and would recommend trying to build somewhat of a relationship with your customer as they are divulging every part of their life to your team. The closing portion was a nightmare: I was told I would be able to close on one date, rushed to get everything submitted to the underwriter, only to find out the day before closing the bank wouldn't be ready to process everything on their end. I later found out that there is typically a 2-3 window once the UW had cleared everything before closing can take place, which was never disclosed to me by First Home. "

"I'm so disappointed. When getting to closing we discussed numbers and they changed dramatically the day of. When I was physically at closing Ryan was not answering my phone calls and I was confused why I had to pay so much more money. On top of that none of my paperwork was at the title company and no one was ready. Nothing in our emails or conversations is what actually happened with my loan. Now I'm stuck and unhappy in my process. As a first time home buyer this has left and awful feeling in my stomach. "

"The processor assigned to me was a poor communicator. You can tell she just copy/pasted requests from underwriting and didn't bother to go the extra step to EXPLAIN what the requested items were or what they were needed for. I asked her repeatedly to not use industry-only phrasing and terms, as I was NOT familiar with mortgage industry vernacular, and she did a modicum of guest servicing. I repeatedly asked the whole team to use my work email as that would generate immediate responses on my part -- they continued to use my personal email. I asked to be texted to notify me of important info requests; this happened infrequently at best. However, what REALLY pissed me off is that the appraisal came in, and it was sent to my gmail account, but because it was from an unknown sender, it sat in an auxiliary mailbox for TEN DAYS. The only way I knew that it had arrived and that the property was valued lower than the offered amount was when the processor asked me for the signed contract addendum reflecting a lower price. I had (obviously) NO IDEA what she was talking about. And then, she had the audacity to blame my agent for not informing me. Why why WHY wouldn't the loan officer or processor contact me IMMEDIATELY when the appraisal arrived?!! I could go on, but I think you get the gist of my feedback about the whole process. As a "guest-recovery" offer, Ryan lowered the interest rate after I relayed all this to him -- and I still have ALL emails and communication saved if you need verification. The icing on the cake was an underwriter's request ONE DAY BEFORE CLOSING for a detailed source history of the gift from my mother beyond the verification of where *I* was getting the funds (documented gift letter) was intrusive and unnecessary. As my mother said to Ryan, "it's nobody's business where my income is from; you only need to know how Kellye (buyer) obtained the funds." Rest-assured, if I'm ever in the position to purchase another home, I will not be seeking mortgage assistance from your company. "

I also really appreciated that Ryan took time to explain things to me to ensure that I understood the process and the figures. He was willing to assist me in any way. I truly trust Ryan and his team with this major life decision of purchasing my first home. I never felt like just another number in a long line of customers, I felt that Ryan and his team cared about me as an individual and walked me through my entire process from inquiry to final closing.

No matter how early or late I needed them to "run the numbers" before making an offer on a property, they were always very responsive and supportive. Once I was under contract, the next steps of gathering documentation was made easy as well. I was truly impressed with their personal touch and sincere support. I would definitely use them again."

"My experience wasn't great because I started believe in all that Ryan told me regarding the loan process. All was a big lie in order to generate business. After closing on 2/17/2023; they didnt even wait a month to sell my loan out to another lender(BSI) with no guidance. When I called Ryan; he said he will get back to me but never did. I had to figure out how to contact this new lender and ask about my new loan# and how to make payment. I was very shock and frustrated. I won't recommend this lender to anyone. "
