  When you need a mortgage broker/lender that can get the transaction closed, I want to tell you about Eddie Hoskins, President of First Florida Financial Group located in Ft Myers Florida. I've worked with Eddie over the past year and he demonstrates knowledge and professionalism on each of the deals he has closed for me and my clients. Recently we worked on a short sale together where I was the buyer’s agent and without...Read More

Eddie, I wanted to refinance my beach condo to get away from the ARM but I was having difficulty finding a lender who would do a conventional mortgage because someone at some point had classified my condo as a "condotel". I was referred to Eddie Hoskins by a local realtor. I am very happy to say that the refinancing is now complete - I am done with the ARM - and I couldn't be more...Read More

  Dear Darren: We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your expertise, professionalism, and superb attention to detail related to our closing.  We never thought we could secure a loan with our credit history. You made it possible. In our eyes, you are a miracle worker. It was reassuring knowing that we could depend on you to return our calls in a timely manner. You made us feel that our concerns and...Read More

  Darren Lynch has been a fantastic mortgage broker from start to finish.  Early in our search for home financing, one of the other lenders we worked with briefly had a long list of conditions for loan approval.  Darren was able to find us a lender that could provide a loan without conditional approval. What stood out to us during this process was Darren's patience, and how we felt he was looking for our best...Read More

  Hi Eddie, Thanks so much for the great job you did with a VA loan for Randy K. He came to me with a pre-qual from you and you "stood the test of time!" An 8-month struggle with an indecisive buyer came to fruition, thank you your tenacity, knowledge, perseverance, and personality! You've got what it takes in a struggling industry and I have no doubt you'll be hearing from me in the future with other buyers to...Read More

  We purchased a condo in PCB FL and had a hard time finding a mortgage due to the condo being classified as a "Condo-Tel" Eddie was referred to us by another lender and we couldn't have been happier. He worked tirelessly to match us with a lender and secure all the required documents. He provided us with a secure site to upload our information, then continually answered our questions, all hours of the day and night....Read More

  When choosing a mortgage partner I always look for three important qualities: Honesty, Availability, and Knowledge. When I met Darren Lynch, from First Florida Financial, I knew from my very first conversation that I had met possibly the best mortgage loan consultant I had ever partnered with. From the beginning, he communicated with 100% transparency. Throughout the transaction, Darren and his team at First Florida Financial kept my buyer and myself up to date...Read More

Eddie and the First Florida Financial team were nothing short of outstanding! This was, by far, the most straightforward, professional mortgage loan process we have ever experienced.  Eddie has an amazing "can do" approach, is completely focused on success and finding solutions to any obstacles in the path to expeditiously closing ... on schedule! It was a real pleasure working with Eddie, Simone and the First Florida team. They made it very clear, right from...Read More

  Eddie, I know it has been over a week since we last spoke but we have been so busy with the move into our "new home"! The key word is HOME...not house or property, but HOME! The purchase of this lovely home of ours would not have been even remotely possible if it were not for "your" hard work, dedication, compassion, and the genuine love of your job of helping people buy homes! We...Read More

Words cannot describe how grateful we are for Eddie and his team. My family and I have recently relocated to FL from Mi. My husband just started a new job and we hit a roadblock with the financing. I called First Florida Financial Group as my last hope. Which I would like to add I should have called them FIRST. Eddie and Simone were wonderful to work with. The software they use to obtain all...Read More

  Dear Eddie, Thank you for all your support during the last year. I will always recommend you for loans to my friends and family. You did an outstanding job getting my son through such a difficult closing. We are now very busy fixing up on a deadline. Walls have been repaired throughout the condo and everything is being painted. Plumbing is fixed which was cheaper than I thought. We are moving this weekend now...Read More

  Hello Eddie, Eddie and his team make the mortgage application and approval process virtually seamless for me, from beginning to end. Being a foreign national, my application layered on additional complexities that I thought would hinder the process considerably. However, Eddie and the staff at First Florida Financial were on top of the ball every step of the way. and professional, courteous and available to answer and assist me with all my questions and...Read More

  Dear Eddie, Now that the dust has settled and reality is starting to set in, we wanted to take a moment and thank you for a great many months of hard work that you put in to help our family stay in the only home we’ve ever known. When we purchased our first home shortly before we were married, our thought was that it would be a temporary investment that would help us reconcile...Read More

  Eddie and his team were very professional and enthusiastic to help. The prompt responses even after hours gave the impression of being an important client and not simply a finance business transaction. The virtual signing and document gathering with the portal was impressive and well organized! I defiantly recommend Eddie and the First Florida Financial Group to anyone!

  Thank you,  Eddie Hoskins, After a long and drawn out purchase process including many unexpected obstacles, Eddie Hoskins and his dedicated and skillful staff were able to make the impossible possible! I will honestly say that he is the most competent and knowledgeable loan officer that I have ever worked with. This purchase would not have happened without you! Thank you! Alex Khademi

  Eddie Hoskins, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. After being led on, misinformed, and denied by 4 other mortgage companies, you and First Florida Financial Group did the "impossible" and were able to get us a loan for a condo unit that no other company would even look at. Home Owners Associations, Investor-owned ratios, tenant delinquencies, etc. None of these we're an issue with First Florida Financial Group, despite all the info that we...Read More

  Thank you, Eddie, for putting this mortgage together for me. I was operating on a meager budget with a limited amount of savings and you came through for me. Your supporting staff was amazing, always available to take my calls and patiently explaining whatever I may have trouble understanding. Bravo to all, I will definitely recommend First Florida.Financial to all my friends!

  Eddie Hoskins and his team at First Florida Financial really helped me when others had declined on me. He was able to work out a deal in a very short time frame that ended up being less expensive than the Quicken Loan deal that I was originally trying for. Eddie finds a way to make things happen when others just end up saying "No". Charles Knowlton

  Eddie was my hero throughout the home buying process. I had a somewhat complicated situation, and he made the loan possible where others couldn't. The process was fast and easy. We closed on time (within 30 days) where other companies couldn't. He even created an innovative loan package to allow me to avoid PMI. The real estate agent and title company were very impressed with this. His communication was excellent, and he and his...Read More

  Eddie, The words "Thank You" seem so simple for all your hard work and dedication you committed to the approval of our loan. After being rejected, and denied by many other mortgage companies before, you moved mountains when we thought it was not possible, remained positive, gave us hope, and got it done. With our hearts in our hands, we scream thank you to the four winds with hopes that it will echo as a...Read More

  I can't thank Eddie Hoskins and his staff enough. I had a tricky situation... I had a purchase & sale agreement to buy a condo in Florida and I just fired My mortgage company. I was in another state 1500 miles away and I had a short timetable running up against the Christmas holidays. With a non-traditional income stream, and a boatload of obstacles to overcome. Eddie and His team went to work!! They...Read More

  Let me start with this, 3 different companies denied a mortgage loan to us. Eddie was able to let us know from the moment we called him, what we needed to do exactly to be approved. We got our dream house 3 weeks ago thanks to him and his company. They were great from the beginning to the end, helpful, friendly, and very professional. I would recommend Eddie Hoskins and Florida Mortgage Loan Pros...Read More

Eddie and his team did an excellent job preparing and guiding me through the application process. It was quick and painless compared to the many other mortgages I have applied for in the past. Thank you for wonderful service.   Eddie Babin

  Eddie, Processed loan and closed in 6 business days after I was turned down by 4 mortgage companies. My landlord told me I had to purchase the condo I loved and had been renting long term by the end of the year or move out. I had fair credit, not 20% down, a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure 5 years ago, and tax liens less than 7 years ago still on my credit record....Read More

  Hi Eddie I originally applied to my bank for a loan on a rental condo that I was purchasing, but because it was a condo hotel, they would not write the loan. My bank loan officer referred me to Eddie, who was able to help me get the loan. Eddie was a pleasure to work with; you clearly explained my options and provided timely information and communications throughout the process.

  Thank You, Tim Tim Canney walked with me each step to ensure everything he promised was carried out. Even after the loan closed he got involved in an issue that needed resolving. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone seeking a mortgage loan! Thanks so much!! Susan Caple

  To Eddie, Simone, Kim, Erika & Tim - thank you so much for everything you did in order to make my first condo purchase a reality. I'm sure I had the most challenging transaction to date, with setbacks at every turn, but your team lived up to your slogan “We Think Outside the Box”, going above and beyond. I wouldn't be a homeowner today if it wasn't for First Florida Financial. Also, I want...Read More

If we had any questions or concerns, he was available to answer them. He...Read More

  Dear Eddie, I would like to personally thank you for your help in arranging the refinance of our home we built in St. James City. You not only delivered the loan in a timely manner, but you provided counseling service as well, which was greatly appreciated. With the state of the economy, getting a bank or mortgage company to refinance our home was a very difficult process, starting with a construction loan that was...Read More

  Thank You, Tim We are an unconventional loan and knew we couldn't easily qualify for a traditional mortgage. Tim Canney was extremely helpful in securing us a mortgage for our dream home ... and in a timely manner. He was there to answer every question that we had and was always helpful in explaining things. It's not our first rodeo and we've bought and sold many homes, but we can honestly say that this was...Read More
