Values & Principals
Home1st was created in 2005 with the idea of creating a great culture for our employees, with the belief that this will translate to their job performance, therefore, it will translate to our clients being served the way they desire, and the speed they deserve. We do our very best to instill integrity, honesty, accountability, passion, communication, and commitment to our staff. You can see the results in the 1000 5 star reviews that we have received!
Our CEO has extensive experience in the financial industry, starting her financial career at the world-renowned Lloyd's of London in New York City over 25 years ago. Theresa has been running our day-to-day operations since our inception, and she understands that mortgage lending is not a "one size fits all".
We are not your average "broker shop" down the block. Home1st is a "preferred" partner with the top national lenders. While most broker shops have relationships with just 3-5 lenders, we maintain relations with over 50. This is important because this truly makes us a one stop shop. Our originators go through extensive training on all types of programs and are well versed in the mortgage industry.
