About Us Description

Dedicated to Financing The American Dream!

As one of the fastest growing mortgage bankers in the United States, we opened our doors in 2001 and have since expanded with many community based branches across the nation. Headquartered in Brea, CA, AFN built its reputation as an outstanding mortgage banking firm by serving the lending needs of real estate professionals, builders, and individual homebuyers throughout the United States.

We are a Direct Lender with delegated authority to underwrite, fund, and service Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, USDA, VA, and Jumbo loans products in-house. Our success and expansion is built on core values including streamlined and efficient operations that optimize organizational output as well as an approach to customer service founded on exceeding expectations.


Throughout the lending process, we provide regular loan updates and progress reports so you always know the status of your loan. We are dedicated to making every loan transaction a relationship that will last a lifetime!
