We just want to say thank you but that doesn't seem enough! What a wonderful experience this has been for us! From the moment on June 8th we decided we needed a better place for our family, to signing docs on June 30th at title, we knew we were working with an incredible team! We felt they had our best interest at heart. Our realtor, Paul Aslaber from Keller Williams Realty, was referred to us from a friend at work and was incredibly helpful and always watching out for us. We knew he was on our side no matter what. Paul referred us to the Ricky Khamis Team at Amerifirst Financial. Ricky was able to quickly get us preauthorized to go on the one weekend Wes was not on travel, to look at homes. Paul was patient with our questions and available to drive long distances to show us houses. Once we decided on the home we put in an offer on June 11th. Our offer was accepted June 13th and Ricky put in long hours and was consistently available whenever we needed him for the myriad of things that had to be done to close as soon as possible. He was friendly and efficient at letting us know what he needed from us next to proceed. He helped us through the rough spots that happen and stayed positive and encouraging. He put in extra work to help us get our down payment check because we didn't own a fax. He put one hundred percent of himself in our loan and we feel blessed to have found him. Ricky addressed any concerns we had and answered honestly all our questions and made us feel more important than the bottom line. He made sure we were pleased with closing costs and took good care of us. We put in an offer on the house we loved on June 11th. We signed at title on June 30th! It's unheard of how quickly this all came together! We know it was because of the incredible team we made with Ricky and Paul. Together we overcame obstacles and pushed through to a better place for our family! We will always be grateful! Thank you so much! We would highly recommend this team to anyone! They are amazing!

Hi, it's David Klein from Devstar Realty.
Ricky, I just finished reading your recent mortgage blog and wanted to leave you a comment.
I have been involved in the residential real estate market for the last eight years and have received many weekly newsletters and updates from various loan officers and mortgage companies over that time. I wanted to say that I find your blog to be the most current, detailed and useful content that I receive. Many times I have found myself sharing your insight in my company sales meetings, newsletters to prospective clients and in general discussions when mortgage related topics are being discussed.
I just wanted to say thanks for your effort and consistency with this great information.
David Klein, Realtor
As a consultant in the mortgage and real estate industry, I have worked with many thousands of loan officers throughout the years and am probably in a better position to assess and evaluate them than just about anyone on the planet. There are a number of factors that add up to differentiate the good loan originators from the truly great ones from product knowledge to communications skills to systems and professionalism to a real passion for their craft and Ricky Khamis encompasses the whole package. Ricky is one of those rare individuals with the ability to focus on the critical items that generate results and not get distracted with all of the peripheral fluff that occupies the majority of the ordinary mortgage originator's time and attention. Ricky understands at an instinctual level that just doing his job and funding loans is not enough and he does a magnificent job of delivering value to borrowers and Realtors that goes way beyond, just funding loans. He makes himself an indispensable asset to his clients in a way that makes them better off for for the experience of being fortunate enough to have worked with Ricky. If you are a a rel estate agent, Ricky will do more than make your transactions close, he will make you a more successful agent and if you are a prospective borrower you will realize that the old fashioned loan officers you are used to are destined to obsolescence based on the "game changing" nature of what Ricky and a small number of professionals like himself are doing to reinvent the profession. With thousands of contacts and true insider knowledge of their abilities and offerings, i wouldn't hesitate to take my personal business to Ricky and you shouldn't either.
As a realtor, I can tell you that I am approached almost daily by lenders
who want my business. All of these people are well intended, but few are
able to actually give to me as much as they want from me. Ricky Khamis is
the exception to the rule. I heard about Ricky and he gladly invested two
hours into my first meeting with him where he showed me how to create free
websites for each of my listings, add them to the blog that he created for
me, and with the click of a couple of buttons convert these websites to
website- ads for Craigslist where they are re-posted every 48hours! In a
separate meeting Ricky showed me how to get my property websites on the
FIRST page of Google!
After less than one week of beginning my process I received my first lead.
This person has $$$ saved and is ready to buy NOW. I have established myself
as this prospects agent all because of the system that Ricky developed with
me FREE of charge.
I highly recommend working with Ricky Khamis. Ricky is uniquely equipped and
motivated to succeed in todays real-estate market.

Re: Ricky Khamis
Senior Loan Officer
Amerifirst Financial, Inc.
Mr. Khamis at Amerifirst Financial, Inc. has been our Preferred Lender for a number of years - starting with Realty Experts with over 500 agents - with a large number of agents at any given time needing fast service on pre-quals to the loan process and closing - and the endless number of phone interactions with each one. He has his Office Team set up to be able to perform the high number of files with very high agent satisfaction. His Referral Base continues to grow with direct referrals from
1. Previous successful closings with our agent's buyers and
2. "picking up the pieces" of files that have "crashed and burned" because of inept performances from original lenders - and getting the buyers approved and closed. We truly appreciate the increased number of Closings we have as a direct result of Mr. Khamis' handling the loans.
Just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much I appreciated your class on "Value of Being Seen". I had no idea how much I didn't know! I found the class extremely valuable and I look forward to working with you one on one to make my business blow up even more!! I recommend anyone in the Real Estate or any other business attend your next class! Ricky at Amerifirst Financial, Inc. is the best in the business!

Thank you for the presentation on "The Value of Being Seen" at Great American Title. You made it very clear of the huge opportunity the internet offers by bridging the MLS and the internet. The tools shown are the key to exposure and success.
Ricky at Amerifirst Financial, Inc., you showed us how to tie the two together. Your ability to stream line the process and make it simple for us is great! We all know it is a numbers game in the real estate industry and gaining additional exposure is critical.
I can only think of how my business will succeed when using the tools is applied to my current business. The class was very informative and I recommend it to all agents and look forward to working with you on many transactions in the future.
American AllStar Realty
I attended the class "the Value of Being Seen" from Ricky Khamis at Amerifirst Financial, Inc. and it definitely had a lot of valuable information on how to integrate new internet technology in every listing that I have or will get. It is a tool that will help me on listing presentations as well as help me get buyers. I have already started to implement the steps and I know that it will help get my name and services in front of a lot of buyers that I would not have reached.
