"Very poor with communication."
Refinance - Salisbury, Maryland May 2021
"I am a recent first-time homebuyer who chose Scott and the First Home team as my lender. From the first call, it was clear that Scott knows his stuff, doesn't play games, and was committed to quality and finding me a rate that worked for my situation. He was always accessible by text or phone and replied within minutes throughout the entire process, even working weekends and holidays to help us win our bid. I spoke with a lot of lenders during this process and Scott was by far the best that I encountered - no games or gimmicks. My wife and I had a few quirks to our application (our jobs were remote work and I was applying based on a contract for my future job) but he made it work without any stress of ever missing closing. Particularly in this wild market, I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat."

He was always accessible by text, phone, or email and made the process so simple. This was a very desirable home, and Scott helped to guide me to making an offer that was most appealing to the buyer.

"Working with Scott Van Stone was the most efficient and thorough home buying experience my family could of asked for. It is very apparent, after now getting through a home purchase, how much of an advocate he was/worked in my families interest. Nothing came out of no where, and he was patient to work toward the prefect deal for my family. Really refreshing to work with someone like Scott and First Home mortgage, highly recommend."
Buying - West River, Maryland May 2022
"Scott was incredibly helpful throughout our home search, and went above and beyond to ensure we always had up-to-date information and timely estimates. Having worked with other veteran-related mortgage companies perviously, I can say that Scott far exceeded my prior experiences, and made the VA loan process as seamless as possible. I will be sure to recommend First Home Mortgage and Scott in particular to anyone in need of a lender!"
Buying - Millersville, Maryland May 2022
"Primary aspect of any successful business is communication, it was clearly lacking with Loan officer, I was told by Mr Scott I need to work on his timeline and his window availability which was clearly not acceptable to me. Poor experience overall."
Buying - Falling Waters, West Virginia June 2022
"Scott is fantastic to work with (his whole team was). Scott is very knowledgable, kept me informed every step of the way. Very responsive. Top notch and I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again in the future. "
Buying - Gambrills, Maryland July 2022
"Scott E Van Stone is exceptional, and established such 5 star rapport I'll be working with him on my next home purchase"
Buying - Easton, Maryland July 2022
"I only interacted with Mr. Van Stone via phone and email a couple of times, most of the time was via email with other members of his team (which got confusing when receiving the same exact email from 3-4 different people). While a lot of the online interactions made the process smooth there were times when I posed questions or needed additional explanation that were not addressed until a time crunch drove a response which added unnecessary frustration with the process. Overall was fine, just a few moments of agitation regarding some Maryland specific requirements that had to be sorted through."
Buying - Pasadena, Maryland September 2022
"Scott was great to work with! Very knowledgeable about mortgages and options. I was on a very difficult situation with the builders lending company locked in with higher rates and 3.5 buying points and Scott was able to save me a lot of money, His loan was approved on time and great customer service. He responded to all my calls and text on time, all the time. I truly appreciated his expertise and knowledge on how Scott and his great team at First Mortgage takle all the arising situations when I switch mortgage companies three weeks prior to closing. Thank you Scott and I can wait to Refinance!"

"Scott and the entire team at First Home Mortgage are truly experts in their craft and dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure a successful close. I’m a first time home buyer (now owner thanks to FHM 😉) and extremely risk adversed, which meant that I knew absolutely nothing about the lending process and had LOTS of questions. For almost an entire year, Scott and his team helped navigate me through the complex world of lending and crazy market changes, answered every one of the 8474637 questions I asked, and did it all while making sure I always felt like their most important client. I’m extremely grateful for their professionalism and can’t recommend them enough!"
