"I was referred to John from my realtor. From the very 1st time that I spoke to him, I knew that he was going to be great to work with. This is my 1st home purchase so I really needed someone to really help me along the way...and I found that in John Yurkovich.Nothing is never easy, but even up until the time we closed on the house,John was right there still answering questions for me and trying to make things go as smooth as possible. I can't say enough about him...however to be truthful I must give kudos to his assistant Natalie Gray....AWESOME to work with!!!!!


I would recommend John to anyone that I knew that is in need of an EXCELLENT MORTGAGE LOAN OFFICER...."

- Charlotte C.

"John and Natalie have made buying a house and refinancing a house an easy n great process. They have gone above and beyond to make my experience as easy and hassle free as possible. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone who has to go through this process. They are the very best at what they do."

"I just had my closing on a refinance with John and Family First Funding. To say it was an easy experience is an understatement. This was my 4th time dealing with a lender for a purchase or refi. And this was by far the best, easiest and fastest of them. John and his assistant Natalie were incredible. I told John from the beginning that I am an easy person to work with as long as there is a constan...t line of communication. There was never more than 24 hrs. that I didn't get an update from John or Natalie. They delivered on every promise they made to us. The one little hiccup with the wording of my current home owners insurance was handled swiftly. John and Natalie worked with my agent directly to solve it in 2 days. I would recommend John to anybody looking for a lender. Thank you for all your help and guidance."

"I can write a novel on how wonderful, thorough, and helpful John Yurkovich and his assistant Natalie Gray were in my home buying process, but I will do my best to keep this as short and sweet as possible. This was my wife and my first home. John knew how nervous we both were and he always said the right things to put us as ease throughout the process. He guaranteed and promised everything would go... smoothly, and let me tell you the man keeps his promise. He closed my loan incredibly fast and he ensured that I would get the lowest rate possible, and I did. He was so kind and always available to take my call and if he missed me because he was with another client he would make sure his assistant Natalie called me immediately. John was great to do business with, but with John it truly didn't feel like business, it felt like a close friend was helping you with the biggest, most important decision and purchase of your life. I'm so glad John was the guy I went with and I will continue to rave and recommend him to friends, family and/or anyone I know looking to purchase or refinance a home. So much for keeping this short and sweet. I couldn't help myself. Thanks again John. You’re the Best!!!!!!"

“We hired Dennis to help obtain financing for a home purchase. He was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. We were very happy with the service he provided and would highly recommend him for any home financing needs you may have.”

- Phil, Middletown, NJ

“I have used Dennis on 3 separate occasions and all were great experiences. Dennis is a man of his word and will stop at nothing until the job is done. I would highly recommend him to anyone. There were 2 out of the 3 occasions that I used Dennis because someone else was not able to get the job done. Dennis is creative in his approach and makes things happen.”

- Dawn, Aberdeen, NJ

“Dennis helped my wife and I during the process of finding us our new dream home. Dennis was supportive during our crazy journey as well as informative every step of the way. Because of his knowledge and great sense of humor he allowed our process to be enjoyable and successful... Thank You Dennis!!”

- Jason, Howell, NJ

“I am a tough customer. I felt like I needed to be tough. This was the biggest single investment of my life. I do not trust people when it comes to money. It must be earned. Dennis earned my trust. His knowledge of the industry and his willingness to openly translate to me in ways that I could understand was well appreciated. And he did so for me almost on-demand. For anyone considering these types of services, let me save you the due diligence of finding the right person; Dennis is that person. By the time we were midway through the process, I realized that Dennis could always be counted on to deliver honest information. His integrity is exceptional. He came back to me in the 11th hour - and offered me a lower rate - without me even asking! That is how customer satisfaction is done. That is how customer loyalty is forged. I will do business with Dennis again.”

"This was the second time we have used Donna to buy a home. She helped navigate us through the process as first time home buyers in 2012, so when we were ready to upsize to a bigger home the first thing I did was call Donna. She is upfront, honest, and responsive. During the home buying process there are so many frustrating people you deal with, Donna is not one of them. A home is a huge investment and it's so comforting to have someone you can trust to guide you through this process. Thank you, Donna, for all your hard work and dedication!"

"There aren't enough stars for me to give this review!!!! I am MORE than pleased with my experience with Family First Funding and in particular Anthony Barber. He FAR exceeded my expectations and he did so promptly and courteously. We had a horrible situation take place with another mortgage company that put my family into a very difficult position with almost losing the house we were trying to purchase. To make a long story short Anthony Barber and his team at Family First swooped in and literally saved the day!! I am SO grateful and thankful that there are still people out there who work for their clients and who actually care! I would HIGHLY recommend doing business with Anthony Barber. He has earned my trust and business from here on out!"

-Lesa C.

"I would tell anyone trying to get a mortgage this is the place to get it from. We couldn't be happier with our experience with them."

-Walter C.

"Anthony Barber is a genius! He was the only one in the entire process of purchasing my first house that was professional, honest, trustworthy and went far and beyond my expectations in making sure that I got the house of my dreams! I will recommend him time and again, every opportunity I get. From the top and bottom of my heart! Thank you Anthony!!"

-Jennifer J.

"John Yurkovich and his team from Family First Funding were very knowledgeable and highly professional throughout my home buying process.  They were able to make this huge step in my life quick and easy, and were always available to answer my questions and guide me into the right direction.  I was able to get pre-approved, find a home, and close within 2 months.  I recommend them to anybody looking to purchase a new home!"

-Brandon and Yesari A.

"Everyone in the office was very helpful and went above and beyond their duties to help me and my wife. Even though USDA took longer then we would have liked, every other aspect of the mortgage process was perfectly seamless!"
