- Fred and Nicole are amazing to work with. Great people and always available for questions. The whole process went smoothly.Sean
- Fred Just closed an unusual and difficult loan for me and did so in record time. Over the years he’s probably handled 5 to 6 different loan transactions for me and my family. He never let us down, always had an upbeat positive attitude and got the job done for us. He’s the best!
- I've had the pleasure of working with Fred and his team for years. Under stressful circumstances, they are always incredibly patient, and kind. Their positivity and helpfulness is clearly by design, rather than on accident. I am consistently impressed with the level of professionalism with a personal touch, provided by American Family Funding and recommend them wholeheartedly.Erika
- Fred provided me with an exceptional level of expertise in the various available loan options and their requirements and recommended the best fit for refinancing my residential mortgage. He and the staff clearly explained the process and the documentation required by the loan underwriter. Whenever a question arose Fred was quite easy to contact and then quickly and accurately responded.
