I had a BK CH7 in 2015, I looked into the FHA Back to Work Program with many lenders and was told many times the program didn't work and I would have to wait at least 2 years. I began working with Erin at 1st Alliance and provided all the information they required for pre-approval. Upon review, she assured me that 1st Alliance were experts at the FHA BTW Program, shortly after I received my Pre-Qual letter for the purchase of my home. I made an offer and selected a closing date 2 weeks from the date of the 1 yr anniversary of my BK discharge. This was a challenge to say the least. Erin and her team gathered all of my pertinent documents, approved the loan and had all documents in time for closing. During the approval process, Erin kept me informed every step of the way which made the process virtually stress free. Amazing team of professionals who know what they are doing when it comes to challenging finance situations. The best news is that the loan came in with an attractive interest rate and APR! Erin and her team at 1st Alliance are the best at what they do and I thank them all greatly for making it possible for me to purchase a home despite my extremely challenging credit history. I highly recommend 1st Alliance to anyone considering the purchase of a home. more »

Thanks to Patrick Reed and the rest of the 1st Alliance Lending team, we were able to get a home loan when several other companies had told us we could not. Now I will say, be prepared to supply a lot of documentation and I do mean a lot, but in the end while frustrating, it was worth it to be able to move into the house we wanted.
Should we decide to move again to a different home, I have no doubt 1st Alliance will be our first call!

Just want to thank Spirit Souza, Nick Palermo & everyone at First Alliance Lending, LLC. My loan was not easy and as a family with 2 small home based businesses and we are not the easiest candidates to underwrite. On top of that I had suffered 2 major credit events during the housing meltdown that negatively effected my credit. First Alliance spent time getting to know us as people, and in doing so we got to know them. They have an easy application process, are very responsive and seem to work as a team. I applied to 3 different lenders and First Alliance from a customer service perspective were the best by far.
My wife and I have worked hard to rebuild our credit over the years and wanted to get back to home ownership now instead of waiting. Thanks to First Alliance we are now new homeowners!

I am a husband of a lovely woman and a father of three exceptional children. I haven’t been given much in my life. Aside from a warm bed growing up, my parent’s didn’t provide much for me in the way of life outside of their home. Needless to say, paying for college and life took a toll on my personal finances as I racked up numerous and staggering amounts of student loans. I had to learn on my own how to budget and pay bills responsibly, and how to get by while having no one that I could turn to in times of financial trouble. I’ve worked hard, and through God’s good grace, I’ve been able to work myself into a position of financial stability and to have a very bright financial future.
Having said this, the last year has been rough! I took a job opportunity out of state, and away from my wife and kids to open up future opportunities. During the year I was separated, we had some late payments and financial issues that were hard to overcome, although we always did! In May, I was able to take another opportunity back in my hometown (no more visiting my family on the weekends) for higher pay and better benefits. Now living with my family again, we decided very quickly, that our “little” family had grown a lot in the last year and we no longer were able to continue in our 1500 sq. ft. house! This is where Sonya and 1st Alliance come in!
I cannot express my thankfulness enough for Sonya Pellitier! Sonya was my loan coordinator, and from day one has been nothing but supportive and ever resilient through all of the trouble we had getting me approved for a new home loan! Sonya stayed on top of every request from the underwriter, every document that had to be submitted, and every letter that had to be written…. everything that needed to be done, Sonya did it! We will close on our home tomorrow, August 22nd. I don’t think that there’s any way that this dream would be a reality without Sonya and 1st Alliance.
Again, I just want to thank 1st Alliance and Sonya Pellitier for everything through this whole process, and we cannot wait to continue our blessed life in our new home!

I would like to say thank you to First Alliance Lending, LLC and to Spirit Souza and Amy Charlton. They were truly a blessing. Spirit was such an encouraging person and she worked hard to make sure all the documentation was sent promptly. She was even a HUGE cheerleader for me because she could sense when the demand for all the documentation would frustrate me. With their help and hard work, I am able to say I have a NEW HOME! Thank you all so much for your hard work and long hours to make sure your clients were able to have a new start. Thank you so much Spirit and First Alliance!!! more »

1st Alliance is awesome. Shean helped me immensely with all the steps in this process. He followed through with everything, answered all the questions I had and most importantly put my mind at ease when I hit a couple of bumps. I would recommend them to everybody looking for a lender. more »

Awesome, experienced and knowledgeable staff! I highly recommend them. I worked with other lenders who were less knowledgeable about the FHA guidelines than I! Amanda with First Alliance was a rock star and I will refer anyone and everyone who asks me to her!! I am now a proud homeowner! Thanks Amanda!! more »

I originally obtained a loan with First Alliance over a year ago and the process was done smoothly, very professionally, and all agents I worked with were so kind, helpful and just great. I am now re-financing at a lower interest rate, and again, everyone I have been in contact with could not have been nicer. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing loan services. I truly appreciate their patience and kindness. more »

Contacting 1st Alliance with my situation was my 4th and long, down by 6 hail mary. I was skeptical but hopeful, but I now sit a homeowner again. I had the great pleasure of working with Justin through my loan process. With any home loan, I've come to expect small hiccups here and there. Nevertheless, Justin kept me informed and optimistic, when I felt otherwise. Thank you doesn't seem to express enough gratitude, but its a start. Thank you Justin & 1st Alliance! :) more »

I was able to get the very difficult to find and succeed "back to work" loan through 1st Alliance. It was a lot of work and documentation but I got a great loan with no fees and a great rate. I worked with a super star loan expert Spirit Sousa. She was amazing and kept a friendly and positive attitude at all times. She was great even when I would get frustrated and would do anything she could to help. She was always available and responded quickly as they work 12+ hours a day there and a lot of weekends. Spirit has my highest recommendation! more »

Our experience with 1st Alliance has been extremely professional, and the kindness shown to us beyond compare. Specifically, Erin McGaffigan, our loan coordinator was an absolute "cheerleader" and couldn't have been more helpful. We closed on our home several days ago and we can't thank Erin and 1st Alliance enough for this experience. more »

I had the most amazing experience working with Shean Layton. When I tell you, that this is a company that truly works on your behalf, this is that company. Shean and his team did an amazing job, made the process smooth, closed me in less than 30 days and made the reality of my dreams for my children to come home to a home possible. Thank you again Shean and your team for an amazing job. more »

We just purchased a new home after having completed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If it hadn't been for First Alliance Lending we would have had to wait and take a chance that the interest rate would go up. From beginning to end took less than 30 days. They were very helpful and courteous each and every one. more »

I just finished a refinance with First Alliance. IT took less then 30 days from start to finish and I am saving over $100/mo on my mortgage payment. Everything went so smooth I can't praise them enough. The first mortgage with them was a challenge every step we took seemed to run into a snag. like the first appraiser not having the right software to submit the report and having to get another, I got frustrated but Alyssa was right there with words of encouragement and solutions to all the problems. I highly recommend 1st Alliance, LLC more »

I have refinanced my home for the second time with First Alliance. Every associate I spoke / worked with was extremely helpful. Whenever I had a question, Spirit was always available with the information I needed. Steve did an awesome job of explaining I got the procedures to me. I find this company, trustworthy, effective, and professional. more »
