Today we celebrate a very important milestone.

It is the 1-year anniversary of our decision to go “all-in” and open First Down Mortgage!

After a lot of careful consideration, everything began to take shape during a whiffle ball tournament I was co-hosting with Jake Bestic of Coldwell Banker. At the end of the tournament, I asked long-time friend and colleague Whitney Loggins the question, “If I started a new Mortgage Company, would you want to join me?”. Without hesitation she said, “ I am IN!” and less than three months later we were open for business.

I want to thank all our families, friends, business partners, clients, employees, and referring partners for your continued support in allowing this dream to become a reality. It has been an incredible twelve months, and the enthusiasm here is as high as the day we made the decision.

I can not thank Whitney Loggins enough for everything she does day-in and day-out, and couldn’t have had the success so far without you. We have added Phillip Greene, Terry Carter, and Matt Voutour to our expanding team and are excited to continue to grow moving forward.

In ten short months of operation, we have helped over 130 families purchase or refinance their homes. Thank you each and every one of our clients for your continued trust and business. If we have helped you or a client, please consider sharing this, commenting, or tagging yourself. You are the reason we are in business and why we continue to work hard every day to treat you and your connections like family.
