How may I assist you?

Thank you very much allowing me to assist you with your home purchase.  I have been helping folks obtain home financing for over 30 years.  Today it is extremely important to get the correct answers to your questions regarding the mortgage process. I established myself as “The Mortgage Guy” through a dedication to making sure my clients understand as much as possible about their loan options, BEFORE they make one of the most important decisions of their financial lives.  I hosted the call-in radio show “Mortgages & More” for 9 years on Business Radio in Washington, DC.  I also wrote the weekly “Ask the Mortgage Guy” Column in the Journal Newspapers Friday Home report for 6 years.  Through the years you may also have seen some of the articles that were published in The Washington Post, Washington Times and the Journal Newspapers.  I make sure no question goes unanswered.
I am also very lucky to be part of an extremely knowledgeable and talented team that handles everything from upfront disclosures, to make sure you know the costs involved, through the processing, underwriting and closing of your loan.
Our programs include:
• Fixed and Adjustable Rate Mortgages
• FHA and VA loans
• Jumbo Financing
• Second Mortgage Loans
• Renovation Financing
• Rural/USDA Home Loans
• Manufactured Housing
• And More!
HomeFirst Mortgage was founded in 1992 and continues to grow. At HomeFirst Mortgage, we strive to make homeownership possible; even to those who previously didn’t believe it was. We offer a rare mix of highly personalized service, competitive interest rates, and ethical lending practices. We provide the right mortgage for you at prices other lenders can’t touch.
Thanks again,

Chris Downey
