Could not speak more highly of Mike. He was so knowledgeable, and I felt like I had some fairly unique questions. Didn't matter, he was always on the ball and gave straightforward counsel. I always felt like I was in capable hands and trusted him completely. I cannot imagine going through this house-buying experience with anyone else.
Mike got us pre-approved quickly for a forclosure that turned into a multi bid situation that we lost. But when we found another house he had the finance letter ready to go Saturday and even with the extra curve balls and being first time buyers got it closed in a month.
Mike Archer and his team at First Home Mortgage completed my mortgage in less than 30 days for my recent home purchase. Mike always provided me with pertinent information and advice quickly and responded to my questions efficiently and expediently, even on weekends! His teammates Ryan Garvey and Cecelia Ward were exceptional compliments to Mike's hard work. Mike, Ryan, and Cecelia coordinated very effectively with me and my agents Melissa Blohm and David Orso to facilitate a smooth and flawless loan and closing experience. Use Mike and his team for an excellent home purchase!
Mike and his team were very helpful! Always available to answer questions and assist me in the home buying process. I travel for work so all of my paperwork was done via email and fax but Mike made it a smooth process! I would definitely recommend him.
Mike and his team made this process a lot easier than it could have been. Buying a home takes a lot of paper work and preparation. Mike had everything to me weeks prior to starting the home buying process (prior to picking THE home), so I had time to get everything in order. This made the task at hand feel much less daunting and stressful. Responsiveness Mike was good, anytime I called and left a message he got back to me immediately. Knowledge was great, from my perspective since I had just a little bit going into this process, he answered all of my questions on the spot and did not "have to get back to me on that one". The best thing of everything is I did not have to meet Mike anywhere, this is 2014, so we did everything over the computer when it was convenient for me. He made sure we stayed on top of everything and gave me plenty of time to get things done. Everyone said buying a home was stressful and miserable, but for me it wasn't too bad, and I attribute that to the team I put around myself to get this done for me. Thanks Mike, will recommend for sure.
Side note: Mike saved me a bunch of money on my insurance as well by getting me in touch with a good insurance guy, so that hammered home the 5 stars on helpfulness.
Mike was extremely helpful throughout the home loan process. There were no surprises at closing. The good faith estimate Mike proposed when we decided to go with him did not change. Mike also took the time to explain the HUD line by line. Mike is a straight-shooter. He took a lot of the stress out of the home buying process.
Great! he answered all my questions and is very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend Mike to anyone. Extremely helpful and expedited my loan to meet my closing date. He was also on point with the Good Faith Estimate.
Mike is extremely knowledgeable of the entire mortgage application process as well as all the document requirements, and that knowledge is how we got our home mortgage. We had a complex application that had a many variables and Mike ( and his team) tirelessly organized all the documents and communicated each step in the process to my wife and I. He made what is typically a stressful process into a smooth and easy one. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy a home.
My wife and I had some trepidation about purchasing our first home. We have had friends and relatives go through difficult mortgage applications with other brokers. We were surprised with how smooth Mike made the process. Quick to answer our questions and excellent communication with our title company, insurance agent, and realtor.

Mike was extremely thorough throughout the entire process for us. Since we were first time home buyers it was a little scary for us, and Mike took the time to answer all of our questions. He was very patient with us and his main concern throughout the process to ensure our comfortably with the rates and estimates. It was a good feeling to know we had someone on our side, to help us along the way.
