As first time homebuyers we had lots of questions and concerns but Lynda and her team were always available to answer all of our questions. I am pretty sure Lynda does not sleep. There were many times we exchanged emails or texts first thing in the morning or after midnight. Lynda always worked around our schedule. The loan process was very smooth and we highly recommend Lynda and 1st Residential Funding for all your home loan needs!

Vance was an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only was he available at the drop of a hat, but he also had the best personality! His motivation, dedication, knowledge and efficiency gave my husband and I the confidence and peace of mind to know that our home-buying experience would be quick and painless!! We were and still are so lucky to have had Vance guide us through the adventure. We couldn’t have done it without him!!!

– Tara and Gabriel V




I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all the hard work – and smart work – you put in to the loan process on our behalf. The whole process was virtually transparent for us, which to me is a sign of a company that knows what it is doing. You’re a class act, and we both thank you for making our dream to live in Florida come true. Our best wishes to you always.

– Jack and Sherri E




Debbie did a great job. Always helpful and responding fast to my requests. I will be recommending her.

– Carlos C




Vance was great. I already forwarded his name and number to one of our employees getting ready to purchase a home.

I have known Lynda over twenty years, both professionally and personally. She always keeps me in the loop when I have a contract pending and is available at any time to answer questions. My clients feel that she goes over the top in communicating with them and works hard to get them the best rates possible. She works hard to get the loans, but is also honest enough to say that it can’t be done and time won’t be wasted. That being the case, she doesn’t give up, rather helps the buyer set up a plan to qualify in the near future and works together to get their credit straightened out. She has been a wonderful friend over the years and a trusted professional as well. It is always a pleasure working with her!

– Jackie Miller, ReMax Select




Lollie was wonderful to work with, we were very impressed with how quickly you guys got Danielle and Trey cleared to close!

– Carrie Sue Shawfield, Save On Realty




Debbie Williamson is AMAZING! The efficiency and professionalism with which she handled my mortgage was remarkable. I would strongly recommend your company and Mrs. Williamson in particular to anyone who is looking to buy or refinance a home.

– Jen E




Buying and selling a house can be very stressful, but Vance was always upbeat, professional and very thorough. I went through multiple financial companies and even though I came with challenges, Vance was able to make it happen. I truly appreciate all of his hard work and will definitely recommend 1st Residential Funding and Vance!

– Melissa L




We had a very good experience with your company. Lollie was very professional and helpful throughout the process. You have a great team and we will certainly use and recommend your services.

– Judy R




Still love Vance and so did my client…feel free to give him a raise!

– Pam Donovan, ReMax Select



Debbie was just Awesome! Thank you for all your help and hard work!!!

– Lubo Dobrev J.Marks Realty




Lynda at 1st residential was great! We were able to refinance our home and closed within a few short weeks. She was very attentive and helpful during the entire process. Highly recommend!!

– Eric V




Vance handled EVERYTHING and THEN SOME! It’s been a great pleasure working with Vance, and I would highly recommend him and 1st Residential.

– Debbie P




1st Residential was there to help with ALL the knowing & needs I was facing to refinance my home. Now when it was time to sell my home, again Lynda was right there to help me with ALL the paper work and what roads to go down in getting the sale final…1st Residential has been there for me more than once, and I highly recommend them to help you with anything you are needing to make a transition in purchasing or refinancing a home. Thanks 1st Residential

– Cathi W




I have purchased several homes in my lifetime and I have never had such a consistent, caring, efficient loan officer as Debbie. She responded quickly to every email and broke down the information so that it was easy to send her what she needed. Debbie is a wonderful asset to 1st Residential! I will definitely refer friends and family to 1st Residential.

– Kathryn T




Vance is my “go to” mortgage person. I have several that I deal with, but Vance always goes the extra mile to get the deal done. He is an expert at communication.

– Lynne Bahre, Weichert Realtors




I had a great experience with 1st residential. I was always communicated with and kept in the loop and everything was always explained to me so that I could understand what was going on. Everyone was completely accessible to me whenever I needed them. I would recommended them to anyone.

– Eva M




Vance is on top of everything, from the moment the client contacts him all the way through closing. The best thing about Vance is that the client can always reach him and he’s always available even if it’s in the evening or on the weekends! Vance provides great customer service to both the client and the Realtors on both sides of the transaction.





1st Residential Funding, Inc. was amazing 16 years ago when we bought our first home and was again stellar for our second (final?) home. I cannot begin to express how incredible Debbie was during the whole process. I admit, I did ask A LOT of questions and she was always quick to respond and very patient. During the whole process I, surprisingly, never felt worried, frustrated or stressed. Thank you so much to you and your amazing team. Another job well done!

– Steve F




“We have worked with a lot of lenders over the years, but Lynda Danna and her team do an outstanding job from start to finish. They give our clients the accurate and friendly way of getting the home of their dreams, keeping them informed of everything along the way, and keeping us agents posted as to the process. They provide easy solutions, and are very cost conscious on behalf of our buyers. When you make it easy to get a loan, it makes the home buying much smoother and easier, and it results in satisfied clients…and agents!”

– Gary Balanoff, Broker-Owner RE/MAX Select




I enjoyed working with Vance. As the listing agent, having communication with the loan officer is critical to ensure that timelines are being met, in order to keep the initial closing date. Anytime I emailed Vance he was quick to reply and provide the needed information. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a mortgage!

– Gail Long, Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty




I can’t rave enough about 1st Residential Funding! I am extremely pleased with the services they provided me, and would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. The professionalism of this company doesn’t compare to any other companies I have come in contact with.

– Michael B




I love working with Vance. He is responsive to all my questions and always make me feel that my clients are important. I give him and 1st Residential Funding a great recommendation.

– Debby Mitchell, Assist to Sell


As full time REALTORS for over 20 years, one of our highest priorities is choosing the right partners to recommend to our clients for what is likely the largest investment of their lives. The most successful of those choices has been our 16 year association with Debbie Williamson and 1st Residential Funding!

– Ray and Pat Biechele, Keller Williams Advantage





We couldn’t be happier with Vance! He responded quickly to every question no matter the circumstances and now we are in the home of our dreams. We have worked with others in the past but they don’t even come close to Vance.

– Rick K




Lynda was very helpful when it came to finding financing for my first home. With the very little knowledge I had on the topic, she made things easy to understand and always kept me in the loop on what was going on. Not only did she get me approved for the loan, she also taught me valuable life lessons in home finance! She is great!!

– Jake N




I’ve sold houses for over 10 years and I hit gold when I found 1st Residential Funding in Oviedo. Lynda, Vance, and their staff consistently go above and beyond to not only make sure our contracts are closed but they make our clients feel special and important every single time. I will continue to take my business to them and highly recommend 1st Residential Funding in Oviedo to everyone with home financing needs.

– Bobby Hunn, Weichert Realtors, Hallmark Properties



This was our first time buying a house and we had no idea what we were doing. Vance and Lynda walked us through all the steps, answered our questions, and reassured us that we WERE going to get our house. They were available at almost any time, day or night. I closed on my house in less than 30 days after signing the contract. It was truly the easiest process. Vance and Lynda were so accurate with their calculations that I only had to bring $44 to closing, and the loan they found for me ended up being less than what we were paying each month in rent. There were no surprises at closing. I can’t thank Vance and Lynda enough for making what could have been a very stressful time in our lives such an easy process. If you are looking for a mortgage broker who is on your side and makes buying a home simple, then 1st Residential is the way to go!

– Becki O, 1st time Homeowner




I have a little secret to share with anyone who is or has ever thought of using 1st Residential. You see, my secret is Debbie Williamson whom I have used twice, a friend and my son have used Debbie also. She does what she says is going to do. Debbie is very accurate in her paper work and follow-up. Debbie gives you all the paper work needed to sign, and never skips a beat.
She was even so thoughtful to attend our closing at the title co. to make sure all the details were clear to use and answered many questions we had for her. I would recommend using 1st Residential to anyone looking for financing, they are the best.

– Rich K




I highly recommend 1st Residential! Lynda Danna went above and beyond, not only helping me through my first time home purchase but working around my crazy schedule. They are awesome!

– Wayne W




Lollie went above and beyond to get me a home loan. I had a rough situation and she knew exactly what I needed to do and the information I needed to provide. She was easy to reach, very prompt and professional.

– William C




Vance was prompt, knowledgeable, and courteous. He was patient and thorough answering all of buyer’s questions. The process was completed in the time frame promised. There were absolutely no surprises at closing. Vance is a true professional!!

– Kenji M




The staff at 1st Residential Funding are so professional and knowledgeable about the industry! They went the extra mile to provide excellent service and made sure we got the best rate to refinance our home! Refinancing with 1st Residential was one of the best decisions we made for our family, not only for the present but for our future!

– Eileen A




When any of my clients tell me they are working with Lynda Danna at 1st residential for their financing needs, I know immediately they will be in great hands. She treats her clients like family, from the start of any type of financing, pre-approval to closing she is on top of it! Lynda is one of the hardest working people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Always readily available, working around the clock and attentive to each person she meets

– Amanda Varmuza Keller, Williams Advantage II Group




I can’t say enough about Debbie Williamson and the value she brings to the customer. She consistently follows up with the process as it moves forward to keep me and the customers well informed. Her response times are fantastic.
It’s obvious to me that taking care of customers is first and foremost in her work ethic.
Thanks for the hard work and continue to be the ROCK STAR that you are!!!

– Russ Walker, Weichert Realtors, Hallmark Properties




My business is very important to me and I work off of referrals and therefore want to make sure I put my customers in the best of hands when dealing with lenders. That is why I use Vance with 1st Residential Funding. I know that Vance will take good care of them and get them the loan that’s right for their needs. Also, I like that Vance is always accessible and that is very important to a realtor when working with a loan officer on a transaction.

– Larry Williams, realtor




Lynda’s team at 1st Residential Funding is always quick to answer the phone and help me resolve my clients’ financing issues. They often assist me during the weekend and late in the evening – even while on vacation – to continue providing quality service and a fast turnaround time.

– Brian Ebrecht, ReMax Select




“It is a pleasure working with Lynda and her team, from first time home buyers, VA, Homepath, FHA or conventional loans her team always gets it done with communication and follow up second to none. I and most important, my clients love working with Lynda and the 1st Residential team.”

– Dominic Persampiere, Re/Max Optima




I appreciate the fast responses Vance gives my clients and me. Everything is so time sensitive that it’s good to know I can count on 1st Residential to close on time. Vance will tell it like it is. If the client is not quite ready then he explains to them what they need to do to get ready and doesn’t string them or me along with unobtainable promises.

– Maureen “Mo” Nations, Florida Trust Realty




Lynda Danna was easy to work with. She was always available to me anytime I had questions or concerns. The entire mortgage loan process went much smoother than I had anticipated

– Joni E




Lynda and her team have been a pleasure to work with. No matter what my situation, circumstance or issue, Lynda listened, considered options and shared with me a realistic outcome. I am glad that I was introduced to Lynda and I will use her as an initial business contact whenever I need a home loan. I have also recommended her to friends and coworkers.

– Cade R




Lollie went above and beyond to make our first home purchase such a success! Not only was she in contact with us via phone/email on a regular basis to update us on the process of our mortgage, she was also able to assist us with ANY of our “first time homeowner” questions that kept popping up! She was extremely patient with us, and made the entire process such a breeze. We were truly fortunate to come in contact with such a knowledgeable, educated lady who knows the mortgage business inside and out.

– Jennifer B




Thank you Lollie for your great support for my Daughter and Son-in-Law (Christina & Will) as they go through their first home buying experience. Nice to have someone we can trust standing behind them.

– Nick R




I had a great experience with Lynda and 1st Residential. I was always communicated with and kept in the loop and everything was always explained to me so that I could understand what was going on. Everyone was completely accessible to me whenever I needed them. I would recommended them to anyone.

– Eva M




The process was expeditious and done professionally. I definitely would recommend Lynda and 1st Residential when considering refinancing.

– Myrna W




I have 4 homes and have refinanced them multiple times over the years with other companies, but recently I had 1st Residential Funding refinance the home where we live. I was shocked at how fast and easy the process was to get from step one to closure! I didn’t realize it could be done so quickly.”

– Dale




If you do not think it is possible to refinance your “upside down” home I was certain it was not. Lynda said “Let me try!” I did, she did, and I am glad. My mortgage payments went down by over $500 a month!!! The money I brought to closing was almost exactly equal to my property taxes I had to pay anyway, and the mortgage payment I got to skip because of refinancing. Lynda is quick, professional, and knows how to “get er dun!” Thanks Lynda!!

– Jeff J




Lynda and Lollie, you both ROCK! Thank you for all of your hard work. Your help was instrumental in making this a seamless transaction for us. We greatly appreciate your availability at all hours and always answering all of our calls and texts, we know there were hundreds!

– Terri and Joe S




There’s no doubt my husband and I are RAVING FANS of 1st Residential Funding! Over the past 45 years we’ve been involved in attaining six mortgages and this one we just did with Vance was by far the most rapid and painless, in fact it was a joy!

– Everett and Mary W




Lynda and her team do an exceptional job of taking care of your mortgage needs. The experience her team has is second to none. They are thoughtful and stay on top of all the details which is very important in the loan process. I highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed
