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 physical branch locations across the U.S. and licensed in 18 states.

Ben was there throughout the process to answer any questions I had. I knew that working with him meant I had a strong ally on my side. He kept me updated with status reports and advised me on all the steps involved. As a single person with a very hectic work and travel schedule, knowing that Ben was there working hard for me gave me great peace of mind.

Ben was a great partner to work with throughout the loan process. He kept me informed every step of the way with what was going on and what to expect. He always replied quickly with any questions I had, and anticipated things I didn't know to ask. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lender.

Ben did a great job handling our mortgage. He professionally and quickly resolved complicated issues on the day before our closing so that it could go forward.

Ben was extremely responsive and pleasant throughout the entire process. He answered all of my questions and answered every phone call. I’m so thankful I was able to work with him. I would recommend him a million times over. A great guy and easy to work with. He really cares and that’s hard to find.

I recently bought my first house and I couldn’t have chosen a better lender to guide me through the process. Efficient, timely, informative and he went above and beyond multiple times throughout the whole process. If you’re looking for a lender, look no further; he’s your guy.

Ben was very helpful, communicative and thorough during the time he helped us as a lender. He took our calls late in the evenings and early in the morning when we needed additional support and clarification during our home buying process. As first time home owners, we had a lot of questions and needed someone who was patient and understanding. Ben was everything we needed and more. Thank you, Ben!
