Jason assisted me with my FIRST time purchasing a new home. I could not be happier with the service I was provided, he was there with me every step of the way. I appreciate him and will recommend him to anyone I know that may need a mortgage lender.

We can’t thank your entire team enough for all of your hard work on getting our loan taken care of and early for that matter. Thanks Jason, for always being available to talk to me and reassure me. This is a culmination of everything we’ve worked for in our lives that is leading us to this moment. It’s the start of my “grown-up” life :)! And you all made it possible. Again, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts and for making our biggest dream yet, come true!”

Jason and his wonderful team got us approved for our first home. We originally started with another broker but we felt it was best to rethink the home buying process based off of approval amounts. But our amazing realtor said not to give up and introduce us to Jason and his team. And the results were amazing from his involvement from the first contact and even after has been above and beyond. Thank you Jason and AAA Capital Funding.

Jason Sarji at AAA capital funding was so amazing to work with. Within a month he got my wife and I approved for a home loan and closed on our very first home. He was very knowledgeable and quick to answer any random questions and was always available to talk. We highly recommend using AAA capital funding to anyone who’s looking to purchase a home. Thank you guys so much ❤️❤️❤️

First time homebuyer here and I’m grateful that my experience was painless and successful. Jason Sarji kept me in the loop every step of the way and didn’t mind answering the million questions I had. The process was super quick. I found my home the first week of May and closed on June 1st. Less than a month. The home buying process can be scary and nerve wrecking and I can attest working with Jason made it a breeze… Best wishes you all and your new homes!!!

I thank God for Jason and his team. Jason was very professional, respectful, and easy to communicate with. He collaborated with our realtor. He explained the home-buying process to us and was very honest regarding what to expect from the market. He treated my husband and me like family. We closed in March!!! We are so grateful and glad we used AAA Capital Funding, Inc. for our mortgage needs, thank you, Jason, for your expertise and guidance during the whole process.

I was completely new to the home buying process. I tried preapprovals from known-name banks and was met with high rates and/or low loan amounts. I did some research and was advised to go with a local lender. With that, I did more research and landed on AAA Capital. I am very glad I was able to work with AAA Capital as Jason was fantastic and was able to quote my desired loan amount at 5.9%. In comparison to the previous quotes I received, this was acceptable.My overall experience of the home buying process was straightforward and easy. Going into this knowing nothing, I did not know what to expect, but Jason and my realtor guided me and explained things throughout the process. Jason was always responsive and really easy to communicate with, so I was always learning and aware of what is happening in real-time and what to expect next. I was preapproved in early August and found a house I liked in late August. My offer was accepted, and from there Jason was on point with getting things done. I was able to close at the end of September and can now say I am a homeowner! I have read/heard about negative experiences and how stressful buying a home can be, so I am genuinely grateful for how smooth my home buying experience with AAA Capital was. Thank you again Jason and team.
