Welcome to First Florida Financial Group, LLC
We’re One of Florida’s Leading Mortgage Companies and Were Founded in 2006.
We are often asked why our slogan is “We Think Outside The Box”? It’s the phrase that best describes how we get home loans approved and closed when others can’t. The second thing that many people ask us is what’s E Zip Mortgage? E Zip Mortgage was developed by First Florida Financial Group and is our Online Mortgage Technology that allows borrowers to see your Credit Scores Immediately and get Pre-Qualified in minutes. Reduces paperwork and provides you with a secure, collaborative, document portal, that constantly notifies you via text messaging & emails with all loan updates. It also provides both you and your realtor with loan status updates via text messages and emails throughout the entire loan process, so neither of you is ever wondering what’s the status of your loan.
We know the Florida Mortgage Business and can close easy, complex and tough deals while treating you with respect, professionalism and consistent service.
