I run a large development company here in the Phoenix area, were international in scope, and have been in business for over 27 years here. I've had excellent relationships with the major banks here Arizona, and have really never had problems in obtaining a loan for my project until recently. As a result of the financial meltdown, major banks have tighten their belts basicly not lending any money regardless of the relationships they've had with you and the amount of time you been doing business with them. In any case, a good friend of mind recommeded from a major financial institution here Jeff Pordes of USA Mortgage indicating that this guy can produce magic. Well after meeting with Jeff and sitting down and explaining what I was attempting to do, Jeff later came up with an excellent plan with an LTV and down payment I could deal with and with that we had a business transaction that was a win/win situation for all concern. Jeff Pordes was able to secure a $74 million loan for a new hotel project that will break ground here shortly. My kuddos to Jeff Pordes and USA Mortgage for coming through for me when all others failed. Brian Wilson Executive President WR Grace Construction Development Corporation
Had a commercial loan that i needed to get done, I've been turn down by various banks in the Phoenix metro area. I was given the name of Jeff Pordes who came highly recommended by 4 other respected bankers in Arizona, who were unable to assist me due to the financial crisis where all facing. They ALL indicated to me that if anyone can get the job done for you, it would be Jeff. Jeff, through his extensive knowledge of the mortgage business and various contacts worldwide, he was able to secure a commercial real estate loan in the amount of $24 Million for a 125 room hotel in the Palm Springs, Calif. area. The most important factor here was Jeff was extremely stright forward in his approch, a no nonsense type of guy, with a tremendous amount of integrity who is truely respected among his peers. In the 30 years I'm been investing in commercial real estate I've never met anyone with the tenacity that Jeff Pordes exhumes. The bankers were right, Jeff was able to get the job done and within the time frame I requested. He comes highly recommended in my eyes. Sanjay Sninvasan President-Santel Development Corp. Wash. DC .
I have a current mortgage that is coming due with Bank of America here in Phoenix, and after meeting with my loan officer he advises me that that can do nothing further and are calling in my note to be paid in full. Knowing that's not possible to come up with a $2.5 million note, I called around to variouse banks and got the same run a round as major banks are not lending any money in the commercial market. Jeff Pordes from USA Mortgage was the only one who was able to sit down with me and understand my needs and work out a plan of action that was suitable to live with. After 3 months, Jeff Pordes was able to secure a $2.5 million loan for my business that otherwise would have ended up in a foreclosure situation. My many thanks to Jeff Pordes of USA Mortgage for saving my business and gaining my trust. Mary Ann Worth Owner McDonalds Restruants Phoenix, Arizona
I recently had the opportunity to work with Nick Heth at Legacy Home Mortgage on the purchase of my new home in Scottsdale. The process was extremely simple and pain free. This was my first home purchase and Nick made the experience extremely easy and seamless. I would recommend Nick and Legacy Home Mortgage to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially in this market. With all of the hoops that have be jumped through in order to qualify for financing in this economy, it is important to have a lender that knows the ropes and can guide you through the process. I can say with certainty that Legacy Home Mortgage is said lender. I will never go anywhere else for my lending needs. Sincerely, Will Pereira
I will give 2 stars because they do respond quickly to maintenance requests. However, they have crappy customer service in the accounts department. They charge $25 to open a letter with an HOA warning (no fines) They charged for being late when their system malfunctioned and wouldn't accept payments. Although I have emails where they 'claimed ' to waive fees they never apply these reversals. Despite re-sending THEIR email, they then claim that the cannot honor it. Gotta watch these Thieves closely If I rent again, I will walk away from any and all properties managed by this group.
I'm a Real Estate Broker and have referred many of my clients to Nick as well as he has done 2 mortgages for me. He is professional and gets the job done. Now that the market is so tough and money is tight, Nick can still do many loans in less than 30 days while other mortgage people are requiring 45 to 60 days. If you use Nick, you'll be much happier and the deal will get done. Chris F. Campbell Real Estate Broker RooPho Realty, LLC 610 E.

I bought my first home six months ago, and I want to say that Nick Heth from Legacy Home Mortgage was absolutely great. He made the whole process a lot easier, helped my fiancé and I every way he could, and got us a great rate. We had about 1,000 questions, and he patiently answered all of them, taking away much of the anxiety and making the whole process fun. I would recommend Nick to anyone looking for a home loan. Thanks Nick.
I bought my first home in 2008 and worked with Nick Heth of Legacy. He was wonderful! Buying a house was a lot more difficult that I had anticipated, but Nick truly made the process easy. He was so patient, and knew everything I asked about. Even after puchasing our home, Nick still checks in to ensure that things are running smoothly. He is a great guy who is really great at his job!
I was a very nervous first time home buyer. I did not know the process or what to expect. I called Nick Heth at Legacy Home Mortgage and he explained the whole process to me and really helped my anxiety. He got me a great deal on a home mortgage and was there for me every step of the way. I highly recommend Nick Heth from Legacy Home Mortgage.
In addition to the excellent loan services, American First has the best hours. I couldn't believe they were even open on Sundays, which was perfect for my odd work schedule. This was a big part of my decision to come here, and I'm so very glad I did. This is a place I'd recommend to my friends and family.
