AFN’s Wall of Props


See what others are saying!

    Jon Yenesel gave props to Michelle Graziano

    Michelle is awesome. Myself and my two partners are new to AFN and we constantly have a ton of questions, some that may have been asked before or multiple times. She is always answering our questions with an upbeat and positive vibe. She also checks in on us numerous times a week to make sure we aren’t in need of any extra help!! We just want to express our gratitude for Michelle’s help as we haven’t had help like this from an upper management person in a very long time!

    Thank You Michelle!!!
    Branch 8719

    Dean Langston gave props to April Hong

    I have a team of people to thank.

    We had a difficult closing (mostly my fault as a new member of AFN). We had a lot of things that needed to get completed in a short amount of time and each member stepped up and went beyond the call of duty to get this loan closed. Borrower Myles, Loan # 4202217533.

    Each of these people deserves “Props”:

    April Hong
    Joanne Mendoza
    James Boguslowski
    Sash Budakyan
    Steve Nunez
    Tony Battagello
    and the escrow officer Amber Hellstrom.

    This borrower had never even seen their new home in person. She has severe medical issues and needed a personal lift installed to enter. It is a private community and a permit is required. It is only a 1 day permit that expired at the end of the day of COE.. This team pulled it off and the borrower was able to get in her home.

    This will make for a Merry Christmas.

    Thank you AFN Team.
