Industry peers and friends Alex Barnett, Anthony Balsamo, & Trevor Gates began Integrity First Financial Group more than 10 years ago. As everyone knows, the last decade in the mortgage industry has been a turbulent ride filled with highs and some of the worst lows the housing market has ever seen. By focusing on the right products, customer service, transparency, technology, teamwork and embracing change Integrity First has blossomed during a time when many lenders failed.
Integrity First Financial Group is now lending in 25 states with new states and new branches consistently opening. We are proud to have helped finance thousands of loans, allowing Americans to find, keep and afford their dream homes. Integrity First Financial Group is a Direct Lender that processes, docs and funds loans all in house. By being able to control the credit decision and turn times for the crucial stages of a mortgage we are known to be a lender you can count on and that closes on time. We have focused our business on helping homebuyers and our product line encompasses a wide array of products such as FHA, VA, USDA, 203K, Down Payment Assistance Programs, Non QM loan and much more. This wide product base allows us to help accommodate the majority of our valued clients.
