  • "Scott was excellent and I did not have an easy sale. He helped my husband and I buy our forever home. Things got a little complicated and were delayed. Scott was patient and helped us along the way. I am also a licensed real estate agent and have recommended Scott to my clients. They have also been extremely happy. I will continue to recommend him in the future. First Family Funding is great!"

  • "Scott was wonderful to work with! We had quite a hectic process of buying our home but he was always there to answer every question we had no matter the time or day. He worked with us and assured us everything would be ok. For going through such a long process i couldn’t of picked a better lender! Thank you Scott!"

  • "Scott walked us through each step of the process and provided details over and above to help us make well informed decisions. Scott was different than all the others we considered working with, noticibly a notch or two above the rest. Nobody pretends that the mortgage process is not a stressful one at times. Scott did whatever he could to limit that stress and keep you focused on what we wanted and how we would get there. Give Scott your business, you will not be disappointed."

  • Scott and his team are the best!!! He makes the process effortless and stress free. This was our second transaction and I don’t see myself ever working with anyone else...... He walked me through the whole process step by step. Offered advice when needed and was able to secure the best deal for my family and I. We’re very greatful and consider him our go to guy for any mortgage related matters. I recommend him to anyone and everyone, whether they’re first time home buyers or refinancing.

  • Buying a home as a single woman is hard, and the poor house needed a construction/home loan just to be livable. This just screams, "not a priority client". However, Scott Nelson treated me like a royal. Every question, every phone call, and yes, every panic attack, Scott jumped at the chance to help. He was always available, always kind, and always ready to hunt down an answer if he didn't know it immediately. You will never find better. Scott is the unicorn of the mortgage world!

  • My first time buying a home, and it was completely stress free with all the help from Scott. Very personable and almost “held my hand” through the long process. Amazing guy!

  • I was buying a fixer upper diamond in the rough. This house did not scream "important client". However, Scott treated me like absolute royalty. He answered every question, and truly treated me like family. I never expected such amazing service. You want this guy helping you when buying a home!

  • It was a pleasure working with Scott and his team. They were prompt in all communications and made everything very clear. They took a lot of the confusion out of home buying and guided us every step of the way. We definitely recommend them! Thanks so much!
