More About AmeriFirst Home Mortgage

In 1983 two entrepreneurs, Mark Jones and David Gahm, funneled their passion for helping people finance their home loans into a successful partnership called AmeriFirst Home Mortgage. Despite an unstable economy that included  high interest rates and plummeting house sales, AmeriFirst began helping local renters achieve the American dream of homeownership. Over three decades later, and in the entrepreneurial spirit of its founders, AmeriFirst remains steadfast in its determination to make a meaningful difference in the lives of its customers, employees and the communities it serves.

As a long-time hometown lender, the AmeriFirst team of over 500 knowledgeable and experienced professionals takes great pride in continuing to service its customers’ loans at the local level. Its enduring commitment to its service proposition has brought the company success and recognition – ranking as one of INC 500’s Fastest Growing Private Companies for six years running*; as a top producing lender of FHA and USDA Rural Development Loans; and as a Best & Brightest Company to Work for in the Nation.
