Our Story

Colorado family-owned, and proud to call Denver home. American Financing is known for its dedicated mortgage consultants, custom loan programs, and faster than industry average closings.

Where We Began

We started in Denver, and we continue to grow in Denver. It's home. From 15 employees in 2001, to 175 employees in 2015, and 329 employees in 2017 — we continue a steady growth that aligns with our business needs. The next couple years will bring more growth as we've been fortunate to acquire added space that accommodates 600 employees. As we've grown, we've built a productive workspace, one that really enables us to continue our mission to be the mortgage banker of choice.

Our Mission
Empowering families with personalized mortgage solutions that achieve life goals.
What we do
You know our products: new home purchase loans (with access to every loan in the industry), low cost and fast closing refinances, and reverse mortgages that offer greater financial security in retirement.
We do what it takes to save you the most money. Trust our customer guidance. Expect no upfront fees. And, know that our mortgage consultants never put a customer into a loan program that doesn't make financial sense. We're here for you.
How we do it
In the words of Damian, "the best way to sustain growth and to provide the best service is through a strong foundation, strategic leadership, and experienced employees." So, we align small teams of mortgage consultants with small teams of processors to create team unity and understanding. It provides customers direct contact with two people, instead of requiring you to follow up with multiple contacts — like some lenders do.
It allows more time for our mortgage consultants to listen to your unique situation, discuss your financial goals, and then help customize a loan program to meet your refinancing or purchase needs. We make every effort to create lasting relationships with our clients so you feel comfortable referring your friends and family.
Why it works
We consider ourselves successful because of the ratings we receive from customers like you. An A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, a 4.8/5 star Google rating, and a 4.9/5 star Zillow rating are gauges that drive us to always go one step further, ensuring the customer experience is the best it can possibly be.
