Colorado family owned, and proud to call Aurora home. American Financing is known for its salary-based mortgage consultants, custom loan programs, and faster than industry average closings. Damian and Gabie Maldonado started doing mortgages out of their home in 1999 and incorporated American Financing in June of 2001. Since then, we’ve grown into a national mortgage banker offering competitive rates and superior service.
As a direct mortgage lender, we’re able to follow a more character-driven, in-house loan process. It allows for innovation when creating individualized loan programs specific to each customer’s needs. And best of all, it allows for quick decision making.
Under the leadership of Damian and Gabie, we’ve celebrated many business milestones and more importantly -- we’ve helped tens of thousands of customers to either become homeowners or save thousands by refinancing their existing mortgage. It’s been -- and continues to be -- an exciting journey.
We’re proud of our growth, yet we never forget where we came from.
We started in Aurora, and we continue to grow in Aurora. 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.
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 salary-based mortgage consultants never put a customer into a loan program that doesn’t make financial sense. We’re here for you.
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.
We consider ourselves successful because of the ratings we receive from customers like you. An A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and a 4.7/5 Google rating taken from over 900 reviews -- we’re fortunate to have these as gauges driving us to always go one step further, ensuring the customer experience is the best it can possibly be.
Empowering families with personalized mortgage solutions that achieve life goals. Let us show you how we’ve become the mortgage company of choice.
