Who we are

At Amerifirst Financial Corporation, we’re knowledgeable professionals in mortgage loans, but we don’t expect everyone else to be. We meet you wherever you are on the road to buying a home, walk you through the process, answer questions, and cheer you on until you reach your goals.


Our licensed loan officers can help you buy, build, remodel, or refinance, choosing from a variety of loan options to meet your needs. We’re also happy to work with people who aren’t quite mortgage-ready, mapping out a path and coaching you on your way to owning a home.


Why choose us?

You can find home loans at many other lenders, but it's much harder to find a company that's willing to invest in you. While we know mortgages inside and out, we're more interested in the people like you who need our loans. When we can give you guidance on credit requirements, help you become a first-time homeowner, or reach your other long-term goals, it's a win for all of us. That's why we put in the extra effort to get you across the finish lineno matter where you start out.

30 years and growing

Amerifirst Financial Corporation began in 1983 with Mark Jones, and David Gahm, and their shared vision of turning renters into homeowners. Despite a climate of high interest rates and plummeting house sales, they succeeded, and today, the company has grown from a single location in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to branches across the country.


From Michigan to Florida, over 150 licensed Amerifirst Financial Corporation loan consultants are serving their communities at the local level, sharing their knowledge of Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA Rural Development, and renovation loans, along with refinancing.  Over 30 years after it was founded, Amerifirst Financial Corporation is still working to make a meaningful difference in the lives of its customers, employees, and the communities it serves.
