I am a big fan when it comes to \"smooth sailing\", and Steve LaForest and Kellen Miles made our loan process exactly that. From the thorough explanations of the process, to helping us through steps that we had had issues with during the buying process, Steve and Kellen were great every step of the way. Would recommend this team to anyone! Thanks again, NewAmerican!

Great experience overall!


It's a seller's market, and cash buyers have the advantage, but you can still compete and win. To stay competitive as a homebuyer you need to become a CASH BUYER! That’s where Buyer Accepted, exclusively offered by New American Funding, can help.
