"I can’t wait to see the expression on my wife’s face when our home is complete!"
Working with 1st Signature Lending turned out to be an overall blessing. My Wife and I had an overall dream of building a home in an area that we where looking a moving to approximately 4 years ago, but could not find anything we liked within our price range. We reached out to Bobby Nichols at first Signature Lending in July of 2017. To check into getting us approved for a construction to perm loan. Long story condensed down Bobby delivered. He worked around my nursing school and work schedule without a hiccup.We had a very tight budget to work with, but even with all that between our builders and 1st Signature they went above and beyond to make our dream come true! So in the month of May I get to graduate from nursing school and watch ground be broke on our new home. I can’t wait to see the expression on my wife’s face when our home is complete and I will never forget everything Bobby and 1st Signature did for us! So I highly recommend Bobby and the crew at 1st Signature Lending to make someone else’s dreams come true too.
"You have been a rock, now we have a new home and thanks to you and the team we are moving forward on a dream."
I have wanted to thank Aleks every single time he has been there for me. His was the first voice I heard many months ago when we started the process of moving to Kentucky. This is not to say that the whole team that has worked with us, mainly me, has not been great Patty Schull and Luke Wilson were also great. The thing is that Aleks knew that I was semi neurotic when the processes started and by the time two homes had fallen through during inspection and one modular home would not appraise I was totally neurotic. Alek’s was the one who called me personally and by thoroughly explaining every issue and answering every stupid question I had, while telling me it was not stupid kept my sanity intact. To be serious, Alek’s had a calming affect on me, he has a very soothing way about him and truly makes you understand the process. He kept me well informed and if I sent him a text because my brain was playing with my thoughts he called and brought me back into why was actually going on. Thank you Aleks, you have been a rock, now we have a new home and thanks to you and the team we are moving forward on a dream. Thanks again and God bless you!
"Bobby literally performed a Christmas Miracle for our family."
I don’t even know where to begin… When we decided to go with a lender outside of our local, hometown lender we were a bit nervous as to how the process would go. When I say that having Bobby Nichols as our loan officer was one of the biggest blessings we could have ever asked for, I sincerely mean it. From the very beginning, Bobby promised us that if there was a will, there was a way and that he would not give up. Our family had been living in a camper (with an 18 month old) and were hoping to have our home in time for Christmas. We started our loan process the beginning of October and Bobby had us closed within a little over 30 days. There wasn’t a day that I didn’t hear an update from him. He was persistent and made sure to inform me of every move on our file. My eyes tear up a little as I type this, as Bobby literally performed a Christmas Miracle for our family. I will never be able to thank him enough for all that he has done for us and for working so diligently to ensure my family could have a home in time for the holidays. THANK YOU BOBBY!
"He was knowledgeable, efficient, available and truly had our best interest at heart."
Approximately 3 months ago, I made a simple inquiry online about my spending power to purchase a home which resulted with a slew of phone calls from Lenders from many companies. I remember one lender in particular who was not over the top and if ever genuine could be felt over the phone it was from a lender named Emerson Cruz. He answered all my many questions honestly and with such patience and knowledge, I figured my husband (the skeptical one) had to speak to this guy! Needless to say he was also impressed so we proceeded. Over the next 3 months we had over 50 calls I’m sure with Emerson who at times felt like a counselor through what could have been a stressful situation. Our home purchasing journey eventually became seamless due to the efficiency and availability of our lender to us. In many ways Emerson became part of the fam and we would genuinely consider him friend. It is hard not develop an affinity (or not) for the person that walks you thorough the process of owning your first home. In our lenders case, he was knowledgeable, efficient, available and truly had our best interest at heart. These are qualities needed in the home buying process and we were fortunate to have that. We are now enjoying our new home!
"He made one of the most stressful things you do in your lifetime a breeze!"
Absolutely a great and smooth experience working with Jesse. He was very helpful and patient as well as being there ANY time we needed him. I can’t say enough about how Great Jesse is. He made probably one of the most stressful things you do in your lifetime a breeze! He will definitely be doing the loan on our next home purchase!
"Thanks to her my wife and I recovered our strength so we can make the final push on our home project and complete it."
To Sheri Wedmore the president of 1st Signature Lending from two very concerned clients. Thank you so much for sharing your God given faith, kindness and steadfastness, because she took the time to call us and has shown two people not only her kindness, but her soul through her faith what it means to truly give a little through a kind and precious word. Thanks to her my wife and I recovered our strength so we can make the final push on our home project and complete it. I just wish and pray that all people who say they believe and hold faith in God would start taking the time to pay attention and notice that all it takes to move someone or make a change in there spirit is by hearing a faith driven precious word. So with that being said it is truly nice to know that there are still people that can be found to offer us hope when we seek it most through maintaining our connection with God and our neighbors, when we share our testimonies.
"If we ever need another loan I won’t hesitate to call Emerson!"
A+++ service! Emerson was fantastic from start to finish! Our FHA loan was closed within 5 weeks! Any question I asked Emerson had the answer. When he was away Luke was there to help! And finally Suzanne was great during the underwriting process! It was a pleasure working with everyone at 1st Signature Lending! If we ever need another loan I won’t hesitate to call Emerson!! Thank you so much!
"I don't think we could have had a better person than Michaela to work with."
Michaela worked with my son to refinance his home loan. She worked very well with him. He has a disability and needed to be reassured frequently through the process that all would work out to his advantage. He first worked with 1st Signature when building his home and wanted to refinance when he sold his old home in order to lower the payment and the number of years of his loan. It has been a very smooth process for him. He also worked with Chris Eberhart and James Myers who were very helpful. I would also like to give some praise to Ryan Clements who has always been there when we have needed him. He was always available to answer his phone when I called! He’s the reason I have faith in 1st Signature!! I don’t think we could have had a better person than Michaela to work with. I give her and A++++. Thanks to all for your confindence in my son!!
"I would highly recommend 1st Signature lending and the team to anyone looking for a construction loan or mortgage."
Working with The Team Of Jacob Hutt, Chris Eberhardt ,Doug Johnson and Patricia shull has been a wonderful experience. All have bent over Backwards to make this process as seamless and painless as possible. I would highly recommend 1st Signature lending and the team to anyone looking for a construction loan or mortgage. Thank You For all the Help, Answering the questions, Working through the paperwork and explaining everything in detail, Making us feel at ease, all in such a professional and timely manner Sincerely, Brian & Michele Heritage
"People like Kelly are exactly why I can see the value of doing business with 1st Signature."
Kelly has been nothing but amazing in the process of helping my wife and I buy our first home. Extremely responsive and thorough in her responses, she has answered all of our questions and concerns. 1st Signature was recommended very highly to us – and people like Kelly are exactly why I can see the value of doing business with 1st Signature. Keep up the great work, and I will definitely be passing along the recommendations of 1st Signature.
"We couldn't have asked for any better customer service and knowledgeable loan originator."
Phil was helpful from the very beginning! He was available anytime we needed to reach out to him. He gave us plenty of information and kept us informed through each step of the process. During the process of buying our house, we let everyone who we were working with know just how helpful Phil was, not only to us but our realtor as well. He was there every step of the way! More then once we had serious concerns about the finances due to our inexperience; Phil always took our phone calls, reassured us through explanation, and helped us to navigate through a complex system. We are first time home buyers and we couldn’t have asked for any better customer service and knowledgeable loan originator.
"He promised that he will do all he can to help us achieve our dream of home ownership."
Our loan officer was Mr. Bobby Nichols. We began our home buying process with lots of prayers. We asked God to please let our file fall into the hands of someone who was patient, kind, knowledgeable and had a genuine care for people. Our initial application went out to 6 lenders. The first lender called and the conversation was over as quickly as it began. We waited for something better to come along and received a call from First Signature Lending. Although still a bit shaken by the harsh response of the previous lenders, I couldn’t help but feel comfortable with Bobby. I was impressed that he even had the time to listen to our situation(Strong point #1). I thought, surely, he’ll never call back. But he did! And he continued calling back every week. We were sure then that this person was an answer to the prayers we whispered a few weeks back. As we listened to his instructions as to how to deal with discrepancies and outdated information on our credit report, we started to see things come together. I was also impressed as to how patient (Strong point #2) Bobby was throughout the entire process. From calling Navient (probably 65 million times) to just silently and patiently remaining on hold while I found information that he was requesting, I always thought, “Wow, what a patient man.” He could have easily hung up and had me email him the information but instead, he remained on hold, or said, “Yea!, Let’s do it!” when it involved calling a third party for verification or information. I also appreciated Bobby’s input when it came down to making difficult decisions. It was at those points he was more of a friend or family member than a loan officer. I still chuckle about his response when I wanted house number two…(sorry, inside joke). I was outvoted for house number two and we counted Bobby’s vote! After our initial phone interview, Bobby must have sensed how stressed I was already. He promised that he will do all he can to help us achieve our dream of home ownership. He said, “If I can’t do it, it’s because it can’t be done. I will not quit” he also promised that he will not drop out of sight and that if we were unable to qualify he would tell us directly. I appreciated that greatly. The council that we were receiving was proving to be beneficial and I knew I could depend on him. Even when things seemed impossible, Bobby’s expertise came through each and every time! On August 31, 2018, we closed on our house!! Bobby did as he said, He did not quit or leave us stranded. He was the answer to the prayer we prayed ten months prior. Bobby, God sent you to help us, and thank you for listening. We absolutely couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you, again and again. AAAHHHHHH!!!
"Thank you all for an amazing experience!!"
This is a GREAT company to work with everyone from Christopher Eberhardt to Michaela Woods and Robin Fox were hugely helpful in making my 1st home purchase quick and easy!!! Great company & FABULOUS TEAM!!!!! I would highly recommend them to any of my family or friends who are looking for a professional, friendly and experienced group of professionals!! Thank you all for an amazing experience!! Lisa Willman, Portage, In
"I can't recommend Scott Moore enough!"
I’ve had a wonderul experience with Scott Moore. Not only is he knowledgeable, professional, and proactive with mortgage loans, but he’ll go above and beyond to hook you up with his local contacts that you might need–a reputable local professional painter, an electrician, a realtor–anything you need moving into a new house. I can’t recommend Scott Moore enough!
"It doesn't get better than that."
My experience with 1st Signature Lending was A++! The team was communicative and efficient. The program I settled on and the execution of the paperwork saved me time and money! It doesn’t get better than that.
I referred 1st Signature Lending recently to a friend and I was so pleased that her feedback mirrored mine!
Add consistency to the list of the awesome traits the team at 1st Signature Lending commits to!
"Not only did he treat us like we were his only customers, but he took the time to educate us throughout the process."
Where to start…John was so incredibly helpful from the beginning of the process and made us feel comfortable with it from beginning to end. As first time homebuyers, we were unsure of how things would go, so we chose to look around at a few different places in the beginning of the process. That didn’t last long though, as John was head and shoulders above the other 3 places we looked at in his service and attention to detail.
We found it pretty incredible how fast he worked and we never found ourselves waiting on him in the process. Not only did he treat us like we were his only customers, but he took the time to educate us throughout the process. Overall, we can’t say enough good things about John and 1st Signature and will be sending all of our friends and family his way.
"His no nonsense approach to everything left me feeling confident in every step of this process."
I cannot say enough about this team! From day one we knew we had a complicated situation but Justin Wedmore had the confidence that he could get it done and he did. His no nonsense approach to everything left me feeling confident in every step of this process. We knew where we stood and if we had any questions he was available day and night to answer them. I highly recommend him and his team to anyone interested in a mortgage loan of any kind. A big thank you to Justin, Sheri, Lisa, Aryn and anyone else involved in this process. You’re all amazing!
"We couldn't be more pleased!"
Throughly enjoyed the chance to work with Dylan Meyers of 1st Signature Lending throughout the entire mortgage process. He continuously helped to lead me in the right direction, and help me better understand the next step. We will definitely be contacting Dylan for future needs that helped make the whole thing possible. Without the help of these wonderful people it wouldn’t have happened as fast as it did. Truely appreciate them working with our crazy military/work/school schedule and getting our closing to a date that worked best for us. We couldn’t be more pleased!
"Thoughtout the process of constructing our home they have been with us every step of the way."
As a Construction Manager I have followed many jobs with high dollar figures. I must say 1st Signature Lending has been a great company to work with. Thoughtout the process of constructing our home they have been with us every step of the way. With a high Construction background I know the quality of what customers expect. It has been a long process building our home , more than what we would have expected. No fault of our lender, but to those of you who are blaming the lender. Beware of what you are hearing. The lender has been there for us. Don’t be fooled by what you are being told. When things are not going in the right direction. Sheri Wedmore has tried her best to look out for her customers . She is a very caring person and I will always support this business and know for a fact she cares. As I leave my last comments. Support this company because I know for a fact they are looking out for you.
"He made the experience feel as if we were working with a friend and not a bank."
Phil helped us purchase our first home. As first time buyers, the process was intimidating. But Phil walked us through each step, going above and beyond in every way possible. He was incredibly professional and was always available to communicate with us, even after business hours and on weekends. He made the experience feel as if we were working with a friend and not a bank. If we had to do the whole process over again, I would work with Phil, without hesitation. We will be recommending his services to our friends and family as a trusted loan officer.
"I would never hesitate to put any of our customers in his hands."
My team and I have been working with Aleks for about two years. He ALWAYS takes care of the valued clients and leads we send to 1st Signature Lending. He is responsive, knowledgeable and on the ball. Aleks has strong communication skills and understands our processes even though they aren’t always like the rest of his builders. We highly value our team at 1st Signature Lending, especially Mr. Gifford and really appreciate his work ethic and dedication to our mutual customers! I would never hesitate to put any of our customers in his hands.
"Matt takes the customer relationship to the next level."
Matt takes the customer relationship to the next level. Great at easing the minds of homeowners that are overwhelmed by the financing process.
"He worked with us to get a better rate than we currently had and was able to save us a lot of money going forward."
Super easy to work with and the process was so fast! My husband and I refinanced our home and from start to finish I think it only took us about 12 days to get done. Justin, our loan officer, was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all questions we had. He even answered outside of business hours, I reached out to him at 8pm on a Friday and he got right back to me! He worked with us to get a better rate than we currently had and was able to save us a lot of money going forward. The rest of the team was very prompt and professional in responses to emails and requests for documents and information. Would definitely recommend them to a friend!
"I can't say enough about how helpful everyone was."
Purchasing a home for the first time can be very intimadating, but Andy helped the whole way. He was an enormous help and I can’t say enough about how helpful everyone was.
"He got us a great rate, and had top notch service, you can't ask for a better combo."
The team at 1st Signature Lending was fantastic.
Dylan Meyers, our Mortgage Loan Originator, was on top of everything from day one all the way until after closing. CALL HIM WHEN YOU NEED A MORTGAGE! He was in constant contact with us to make sure we knew what was going on and what our best options for home lending were. He was way more friendly and knowledgeable than I expected anyone in the mortgage industry to be. He got us a great rate, and had top notch service, you can’t ask for a better combo.
Robin Fox was our Loan Processor. She did everything she could to make the process as easy on possible for us, and succeeded with flying colors. It was completely evident that she took the time to do the job right the first time, which in turn allowed us to not have to worry about anything going wrong with our mortgage. It took a huge stress off of our backs.
Overall, 1st Signature Lending was a pleasure to deal with, and I will take pleasure in recommending them to everyone I know buying a new home.
"We are very happy to have worked with him and will recommend him to others."
Aleks did a great job working with us throughout our loan process. He is very professional, yet very personable. He said he would be available at anytime we called for any questions and stayed true to that comment. We are very happy to have worked with him and will recommend him to others.
"From start to finish, you maintained contact, helped us get what we needed, and moved the process quickly and with the highest level of professionalism."
After several months of working with a lender that seemed to moving the goal post, God sent a new path and it was 1st Signature Lending. Thank you Bobby Nichols for listening, giving us a new strategy, and getting us closed in a little over thirty days. From start to finish, you maintained contact, helped us get what we needed, and moved the process quickly and with the highest level of professionalism. I have a midsize accounting office, and I will be sending many many more qualified potential homeowners your way. Thanks again.
"She has a unique and comforting demeanor which made me feel I was working with the right people regardless of the outcome the process."
