We worked with Chris Hood on our mortgage. He and his team made sure we were informed about each step of the process and understood the time frames involved. It was an excellent experience. A little frustrating at times because the underwriters always seem to want more information. Chris walked is through everything with expert knowledge for our VA loan. If we're ever looking for a new home I hope to work with him and his team of outstanding ... Read More

As a first time buyer, the trepidation was immense. With Chris and Josh walking me through every step with absolute care and patience, they made an anxious experience enlightening and easy. I cannot express how thankful I am that I had Chris, Josh, and their American Pacific team holding my hand through the process of placing an offer, filling out the immensity of paperwork, and the eventual closing of my house. Without their help, I would have been lost. With them, I felt wholly supported, and I am forever grateful to the professionalism on everyone in their team. Immediate responses and way above the normal call of service, Chris and Josh are excellence. I cannot thank them ... Read More

Chris Hood, Josh Hood, and their team were fabulous! They really took a lot of fear and confusion out of the home-buying process and allowed us to enjoy the process. Chris was able to give me a lot of really great information based on my financials that provided a helpful insight into what I was able to afford and what my loan options were in a multitude of scenarios. He kept my expectations set at every point in the process, and was able to get my final numbers in under budget, which was awesome! The team was in constant communication with us, answered any questions we had promptly, and never left us in the dark. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to work with this group again, and believe they will absolutely deliver on any of your mortgage needs. Thank you Chris and ... Read More

We met Sara at a home that was For Sale down the street from where we were living. At the time we were not ready to buy but we’re knew we would be soon. We started our process with a Home lender off Credit Karma who basically gave us the run around for more than a month and a half. We then remembered how nice and friendly Sara was 4 month before so we reached out to her. She literally got us approved in less than 24 hrs, way more than the other guy did in a month and a half. She was always on top of every step and making sure we knew what was going on. I felt so informed and comfortable in the whole process! I would recommend Sara to everyone! She was ... Read More
