About Tony Leighty

My motivation: To make sure that I not only provide a customer-centric experience, but an educated experience as well. From an early stage in my career I was able to recognize that the educated borrower will be the confident borrower. There's no two ways around it, purchasing a home is an intimidating experience, however it does not have to be a fearful one. I've learned that the more I inform and educate my clients, they were able to break down those barriers and come to enjoy the experience, and that's my ultimate goal. Wherever you are in the home buying process or would like to develop a home buying plan, I'd love to work that out with you.

Tony's Reviews

"Very efficient."
Refinance - Washington, District of Columbia February 2020
"Tony was very courteous and prompt with all requests and actions. One of the smoothest mortgage experience I've had."
Refinance - Alexandria, Virginia March 2020
"When I started the process of looking for a new house I really didn't know where to start when it came getting a mortgage. I contacted a couple of lenders, but it was the typical corporate bank scenario in which I was just a client number. A person I spoke to at one of the banks was very pushy and the other seemed to know less about the process than I did. Neither made me feel comfortable about making the largest purchase of my life. Luckily I was personally referred by my realtor and friend to Tony Leighty from First Home Mortgage. I always prefer a direct referral when it comes to anything. I got a direct line to him right from the start. He was super knowledgeable and patient in explaining every aspect of the process, not at all pushy. I never felt rushed and never like I was just another client. He was always available to me when I had questions and kept me informed at every step of the process. It felt as though he actually cared about my outcome and not just securing the sale. I will HIGHLY recommend Tony to anyone I know that is even thinking about any type of home financing."

"When we decided to buy a home, we reached out to Tony Leighty at First Home Mortgage. Although we have been through this process before, Tony made sure we had everything we needed to make this process go smooth and fast. It went so smoothly; everything was approved 20 days before the closing date. What a great painless process this was for us! Falco and Brenda Benfield "
Buying - Pasadena, Maryland December 2020
"Tony was extremely helpful. We were expecting our first child and Tony was able to share very clear and accurate steps for us to refinance. He always made himself available to answer any questions and walked us through the process step by step. "
Refinance - Wheaton, Maryland December 2020
Buying - Rockville, Maryland November 2020
"We used First Home Mortgage for our refinance and worked with Tony Leighty. We chose to start the refinance process in the midst of the COVID -19 pandemic, which was great for us in terms of interest rates but complete madness for the mortgage companies and their representatives due to the massive influx in demand during such an unprecedented time. Being as this was our first experience refinancing our home, we had lots of questions and required constant explanation and hand-holding throughout the process. Tony was a wonder to work with! He was quick to respond, always accommodating and incredibly knowledgeable of the process. When working with Tony you can be guaranteed a great experience with the best customer service and the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend working with Tony Leighty and First Home Mortgage."
Refinance - Arnold, Maryland November 2020

Buying - Glen Burnie, Maryland April 2021
" We had a great experience working with Tony; he guided us through the process and answered all questions."
Buying - Crofton, Maryland May 2021
"One of the reasons I chose to work with Tony is that even before I was ready to purchase, he spent the time talking to me through financing options for a home loan and helping understand what it would take. When I said I was looking for information, he understood and didn't rush me in the process. Not only that, but he followed up with me and also remembered who I was nearly a year later when I was ready to buy which impressed me. Another reason I chose Tony is that he was straight to the point in answering questions. I had a LOT of questions and he would answer them without making me feel like I was receiving an overwhelming amount of information. I appreciated that we were also able to discuss rates and that he came to my closing. "
