    Michelle is an incredible addition to the New Jersey Division. Wow… she is all about getting it done. She was such a gift for me while I was in New Jersey for the Team AFN Impact 2018 event. When I am traveling for Team AFN I truly appreciate when my Team AFN Teammates make me feel at home where ever I am around the country. Michelle took every opportunity to make sure that I was taken care of so I “truly” appreciated that at the highest level. She obviously went “above and beyond” for the Team AFN Impact 2018 event doing all the little things that were required for “success” including spending 8 hours on the flooring in the event location. It made a huge difference….

    I am so thankful to have Michelle on the NJ Team, but I’m truly excited to have her on Team AFN.

    Awesome job!!!

    Thank you Michelle.

His positivity and knowledge is second to none and that allows him to masterfully push loans for his sales team so we can focus solely on new business and a great customer experience. Thank you Elliot for all you do. He could easily have his own branch within AFN and will always be an invaluable asset.
