I can't say enough about how wonderful Ryan was throughout each step of the process! He was very patient with all of my questions, and provided us with numerous options to see what would be the best deal for us. Like many prospective buyers in the hectic DC real estate market, we made several offers before we finally got our dream home. Each time, Ryan patiently provided numerous loan options and quick pre-approval letters, no matter the time of day we made the request. In the end, we had a relatively quick close, and Ryan and Vendula managed to get our loan ready ahead of schedule!

As first time home buyers my wife and I could not be more pleased with the services Ryan and Vendula of First Home Mortgage provided us. They walked us through each step of the process, providing guidance along the way, and thus allowing us to make sound decisions when it came to obtaining a VA loan. They were both very knowledgeable with the VA loan process and the various intricacies that accompany a VA loan. I cannot recommend Ryan and Vendula enough to others who may be considering buying, selling, or refinancing.

I have used Ryan many times in the past for my financing and refinancing needs. He is extremely knowledgeable and always had the patience to deal with my various, often times basic, questions as they would arise. Time and again I was impressed with his knowledge and ability to quickly provide any necessary paperwork including pre-approval letters. During my most recent purchase he continually met extremely tight timelines and addressed unforeseen challenges from the VA. Of note, he interrupted his vacation more than once to talk to me and his (boss??) happily jumped in as well to get this across the finish line with no time to spare. In sum, Ryan and his team are the best in town.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for a smooth home mortgage process. Everyone was diligent (organized and only asked for info once); accessible (available and patient with our questions); and kind (while rushing to get the paperwork processed during the busy holiday season). I'm glad we were referred to you and happy to pass on your info to our friends.

Ryan has guided me through two purchases and several refinancing’s over the years. Ryan has been terrific - he is patient, thorough and always looking out for my best interests. He is willing to put in the time and effort to consider various options and address any concerns or questions I may have. He and his team always deliver great service (and great rates!). I love working with Ryan and highly recommend him.

I was a first-time home buyer, that purchased a for-sale-by owner home - so no realtors were involved, plus there were all kinds of other complexities involved with the sale. I found Ryan after reviewing several lenders. He answered all of my questions, sometimes multiple times (because I didn't really always understand the answer the first time). He demystified the home buying process and demonstrated kindness and integrity throughout the entire process. In addition, Ryan is very responsive. I don't plan on getting another home loan anytime soon, but when I'm on the market again, I will definitely seek out Ryan (if he's still in the business then). In the meantime, I will just recommend him to everyone I know.

My wife and I recently purchased a new home and were in a tougher than usual spot than most borrowers - only one of us is working at the moment and we were facing some legal issues that ultimately will prove to be nothing but would likely have precluded us from getting a mortgage from any of the big banks. Ryan and his staff were excellent in gathering the needed information and got their arms around our application. We went to closing less than two months after putting our new home under contract. Thanks Ryan and First Home for a job well done.

As a first time homebuyer, I could not be happier with the excellent service and guidance by Ryan and Vendula at First Home Mortgage. They made the process feel simple and straight forward with DC's Open Doors program and went out of their way to answer questions and find me the best home insurance quote.

Working with Ryan and the FHM team was a great experience. In the world of mortgages and refinances it's not always a smooth experience and with Ryan's professionalism and Vendula's attention to detail they made the process really positive. I would recommend FHM to anyone looking to buy or refinance a home. They get a A+ for service in my book.

Brian S.

Ryan and his team made it very easy for us to obtain a home loan. Ryan was very open about the process and educated us on the topics that we need to know. His team really helped us get our documents in line and worked with us with challenging issues. I would recommend anyone needing a home loan, his temperament is really perfect for a very stressful process. Call Ryan if you need a loan!

Joshua M.

As a Navy Veteran, I am very appreciative for all of Ryan's help. He was very knowledgeable with the VA loan process, and provided us very honest and stellar advice. Ryan was referred to us by family as the broker to do business with due to a very stellar success record, and we are so very glad we did. Ryan fought for us to receive the best rate, and was just so very helpful and patient with our home buying experience. No matter the time of day - we were able to reach him, and most importantly we were able to close on time. Highly recommend Ryan and his team!

Ryan and Vendula were fantastic to work with during our home buying process. They were always accessible and answered both the dumbest and hardest questions with ease and professionalism. When I needed someone to go to bat for us, he was there. If I ever need to refinance or buy another house, he will be my first call.

Doug T.

Ryan did a fantastic job helping me with my mortgage loan. He is responsive, knowledgeable, and always kept my best interests in mind. In particular, he referred me to another lender for a second mortgage when he found a loan product that better suited my needs. Ryan and his team are a pleasure to work with, and I recommend him to anyone looking for a home loan

Ben M.

Ryan and the FHM team are awesome. We had a very fast turn around on our recent purchase, we were worried about hitting the deadlines. Not only did Ryan and Vendula hit every deadline, they were early. The closing was as smooth as can be. I highly recommend them!

Beth E. and Darryl D.

Ryan and his team makes what is usually a very stressful process, very manageable.

Christina K.

Ryan and his team were fantastic during the whole home purchase process. No matter the question, Ryan got back to us in a timely fashion and made sure everything went smoothly. Anytime an issue would come up, either Ryan or someone from his team would quickly step in and make sure it was taken care of. Our purchase was a complex one but Ryan made it seem easy. If you are looking to finance a new home I would highly recommend reaching out to Ryan!
