- We've know Fred for over 25 years and have done multiple mortgages with him. We've recently retired, and found that our mortgage opportunities have changed significantly and have become much more challenging without regular employment income. Fred and his team met these challenges head on, and came up with a customized plan that met our needs perfectly. And as always, the process was smooth and conducted with the highest degree of integrity.
- Fred and American Family Funding are the best! We've been using them for loans and refinances since 2002, when we bought our first condo. He helped us get the best rate and the best loan every time. He's always come through when we had problems as well. Once a lender approved us, then realized my wife was on maternity leave in the middle of escrow, and decided to cancel our loan, past our contingencies. Fred got us another lender at the last minute, with an even better term, which really saved us. They're great!Alex
You were ready to close and had docs in escrow weeks ahead of our close date...not to mention since the concurrent escrow delayed our close you were able to extend my client's lock at no extra expense. Thanks Fred Arnold!Tami

- Fred Arnold and his team at American Family Funding made refinancing a painless experience. They were so efficient and friendly and there were no "last minute panics" that I've experienced in the past. This is what a business should be run like. Got me an amazing rate with a amazing lender. I can't thank Fred and his team enough. Highly recommended.
