At First Option, mortgages are about much more than numbers and rates. They’re about people: families and veterans, newlyweds and retirees, looking for a better life. Purchasing a home is life-changing, which is why we’re committed to every call that inquires about rates and every person who walks through the doors of our local branch offices with a dream of home ownership. We care about each other and our customers, because we believe in putting people first. We believe in making a difference.

As a nationally recognized mortgage lender, we serve people throughout the nation with lending services in Conventional, FHA, USDA, and VA residential home loan products. We’re headquartered in Atlanta, GA with 9 physical branch locations across the U.S. and licensed in 17 states.
