We were first time homebuyers, and found Alex and First Home Mortgage via the DC Open Doors Program. He went above and beyond our expectations. Despite all our research and prepartion on the loan process, as first time homebuyers, we had a million questions, many of which were elementary to a financial professional. Alex was incredibly patient explaining the home-buying process and the math behind our interest rate and pre-approval amount, all in layman's terms. He is additionally responsive with blazing speed, even on weekends, which is what you need in this fast-paced real estate market (our offer was accepted within 3 days of listing). He also offered us the lowest interest rate of the banks where we shopped around. He helped us graduate from being renters uncertain that we could ever afford anything in DC to competent and confident buyers. He's exactly the kind of mortgage lender you want on your home-buying team.
Alex Jaffe was very professional and guided us through the mortgage finance with great expertise, answered our questions in a thoughtful and timely way, and were personable leading to a smooth process and a positive outcome. We wholeheartedly recommend him as a trustworthy and knowledgeable mortgage broker. Also he is a really nice guy!
My wife and I just sold our townhome and bought a single-family house. We were referred to Alex Jaffe by our realtor. Alex did a fantastic job in getting us a loan for the new home purchase: not only did he move things along smoothly and quickly, he was very nice to deal with on an interpersonal level. The entire loan experience was excellent, in stark contrast to our last mortgage lender experience. I highly recommend Alex and First Home Mortgage to anyone looking to buy a home.
I highly recommend working with Alex Jaffe. He is a true professional. That is he was timely, insightful, professional and thoughful during my entire loan and home buying process. I couldn't have asked for a better lender. Thanks Alex!
I recently purchased a home in Washington, DC and Alex Jaffe was my lender. Alex was amazing. He's incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and goes above and beyond to ensure you're informed and comfortable with all stages of the process. He also gave recommendations for many personal services like movers, financial advisers, etc.
Alex was patient through my changing closing dates and was very responsive to any communication. He even supported my personal philanthropic efforts. I'm very satisfied with his services and my purchase and will definitely use him in the future.

As a first time homebuyer, he walked me through each part of the process and thoroughly explained everything each step of the way. Most importantly, he was helpful in calming my nerves throughout the process! He definitely helped to minimized the stress of buying a home!

As a first-time home buyer, I can't thank Alex enough for helping me throughout the entire process of getting a mortgage for a condo in DC. He went the extra mile making sure I understood things like what I could afford, the different loan programs out there, and finally the HUD document. Highly recommended!

I just bought my first home through Alex. He was wonderful to work with! He was extremely prompt in all his replies to me, no matter what time of day I wrote him. He also always took the extra time to walk me through all the documents, explaining each one and answering my questions (which I had a lot of as it was my first home purchase). I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy.
Alex was the lender I used to buy my first home. He was awesome! He was always reachable, never seemed to get tired of my endless questions, and was always super friendly. I was referred to him because of all of his experience closing loans under the new "DC Opens Doors" program. He was very knowledgeable about that process. He also came to my settlement which meant a lot to me! Since my loan has closed, he's continued to be a great resource and I know that he is only an email or call away if I ever have any future questions with my mortgage. I highly recommend Alex!
