In 1983, Mark Jones and Dave Gahm co-founded Amerifirst Home Mortgage. Their goal was to have more control over the quality of the mortgage process and to create a workplace where employees are treated like family.
Over three decades later, and in the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders, we remain true to our mission of making a meaningful difference in the lives of our customers, colleagues and the communities we serve. Together, we endeavor to provide affordable home loan financing for thousands of individuals and families each year, especially in rural and underserved communities and among first-time homebuyers.
If you're looking for a culture that is friendly and supportive, and you want to continue learning and growing, consider Amerifirst. We're committed to building a diverse team, fostering an inclusive culture and investing in equity across our organization. We believe building a team diverse in people, ideas, and experiences allows all of us to be more successful in our jobs and better address the needs of our customers.
Our strong set of company values sets our course on how we interact with our customers, reach more renters with homeownership opportunities, and make important decisions that affect those we serve. This, in turn, enables us to achieve our mission of making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
We tell the truth and do the right thing, even when it's not the easiest choice.
All work and no play? Not at Amerifirst. High professional expectations must be matched with living a balanced life.
We work to develop and keep quality relationships through our everyday interactions with our borrowers, business contacts and team members.
We embrace change and challenge with the expectation of success. We see change as an opportunity to excel.
We're committed to improving and becoming better. From personal studies to professional training, development happens purposefully and consistently.
We operate under the golden rule. Do you treat others the way you expect to be treated? Be fair. Show respect.

Final Documents Supervisor
Our owners are open and visible. I like that they walk around the company and interact with the team. They live our core values of honesty and integrity and fairness and respect for others. They also make you feel that you matter and are important to them. I like to work independently and I feel supported by my boss and my team.

The family feel to Amerifirst is what I like best. This starts at the top with the owners Mark and Dave making you feel that you're part of the family and not just another employee. This company really supports its core value of work-life balance and as a father of young children, that means a lot!
