– Maureen Glynn, Closed purchase loan (Aliso Viejo, CA) – Jan 2014


“Al Rodriguez and Kendall are amazing! They were very professional yet understanding of how stressful the process of buying my 1st house could be. Wonderful team! Appreciated how they took the time to explain the steps along the way. Their requests were detailed, which helped. They went out of their way to make sure my loan closed on time…actually less than 30day escrow. The level of service from both of them was outstanding.”

– Adriana Flores, Closed purchase loan (Orange, CA) – Jan 2014


“I was completely satisfied with my experience working with Al and Kendall at AmeriFirst. They were professional and very responsive. I eventually ended up with an even better rate than the initial rate they quoted me. If I sent them an email, it was literally less than 10-15 mins before I’d get a response. Kendall was very pleasant to work with, always available to answer questions, and extremely prompt. My questions or concerns were always taken seriously and thorough responses were given to help me understand all the statements and forms. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.”

– Craig Gilbert, Closed purchase loan (Mission Grove, Riverside) – Jan 2014


“Al and his team were very professional and prompt in the loan process. Al did more in a day than I had several other lenders accomplish in weeks. Al’s knowledge and dedication to my loan request was instrumental in my purchase of a home under tight time constraints. I will definitely use Al as my loan agent in my next purchase. I have also referred Al to several colleagues. Al’s service exceeded the 5 star rating!”

– Mark Gowin, Closed purchase loan (San Clemente) – Jan 2014


“I recently used Al Rodriguez to finance 2 home purchases in the past six months. Al was extremely impressive, honest, and extremely hard-working on all fronts. Within the industry, he is well known and has a reputation that he will “get it done”. This was critical with the sellers and real estate agents as they had complete confidence that I would be able to close my purchase. My offer was accepted under the contingency that I could close escrow in less than 30 days. Al promised and delivered. He is well known by the Escrow Companies as well and everyone I spoke to said he had a stellar reputation in the industry. All agents I have worked with in the past year in San Clemente knew and respected Al.Al Rodriguez is dependable, extremely hard-working and meets or exceeds any promises he makes. He will go to extreme lengths and effort and he has earned my life long business. I would recommend Mr. Rodriguez to anyone I know.”

-  James Castro, Closed purchase loan (San Clemente) – Jan 2014


“The service Al provided me in financing my new home was exceptional. He has an outstanding team of professionals that guided me through the process with great expertise, answering all my questions in a thoughtful and timely manner. My situation was a little difficult but Al was very optimistic and enthusiastic as he and his team led me through each step of the process as smoothly as possible with a positive outcome. Al and his team of experts are extremely good at what they do. I highly recommend working with Al Rodriguez!”

- Nicole Bastio, Closed purchase loan (Laguna Niguel) – Jan 2014

- Sarah Kenworthy, Closed purchase loan (Dana Point, CA) – Dec 2013


“Al made my loan process a breeze. I highly recommend him. Worked hard to get me a great rate. We started the process and before you know it, we were finished. I have others do loans and they were nightmares. Working with Al was great.”

- Kevin Welles, Closed refinance loan (Laguna Hills, CA) – Dec 2013


“There are not enough great things to say about Al! He paid very close attention to detail during my pre-approval as well as throughtout the entire loan process. He was extremely knowledgeable about the different options that were offered to me, but also when having conversations about generalized conversations about the economy and the ups and downs of the real estate market. We were in constant contact and I knew that whenever I needed to get a hold of him for a question or to discuss loan options, he was always available. We had daily calls and/or e-mail exchanges to make sure that everything was always on track, and as a first time homebuyer, Al made the process extremely easy for me, and everything closed right on time! 5/5 across the board, and I would HIGHLY recommend this lender! My brother will most likely be looking to purchase a house within the next year, and he will definitely be giving Al a call!”

- Chris Wingert, Closed purchase loan (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA) – Nov 2013


“As a first time home buyer I didn’t know where to start when it came to a home mortgage loan. Luckily for me I found Al Rodriguez. Al explained all of my different loan options and helped me pick the one that best suited my needs. He is very knowledgeable and kept me updated throughout the entire loan process. I would highly recommend Al Rodriguez for your next loan.”
