"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 - Glen Burnie, Maryland December 2017

As a first homebuyer, I didn't know what to expect but Ryan walked me through the process along with Heather Oaks and Britney Dixon. Everyone was knowledgable and trustworthy. I Highly recommend First Home Mortgage for your home loan needs. "

"Ryan and his team were the greatest, I was very pleased with the time and effort that the company put into helping me through the process. I would recommend this Ryan team to all my friends!"
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."

Buying - Severna Park, Maryland November 2018
"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."
Buying - Glen Burnie, Maryland August 2019
"First Home Mortgage was very engaged in every aspect of the loan origination process. We were pleased with the communication and assistance with completing the forms.

Buying - Chesapeake Beach, Maryland September 2019
"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"
