About Us When AFN was first founded by Jack and John Sherman in 2001, their goal was to create a modest, family run, regional lender to support the local California community. As other lenders began growing beyond capacity along with the housing bubble, AFN remained small, focusing on manageable organic growth. After the market crash in 2007, we continued to be a strong presence in the mortgage industry, steadily expanding our licensing. By selecting the right partners, our growth has continued to be both steady and successful with AFN now licensed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia (DC), and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and funding more than $13 Billion per year in markets across the country. Unlike other companies, whose volume levels are tied to the interest rate environment, AFN’s volume is primarily tied to successful partnering with new branches in new markets. By starting small and growing organically—even through the housing bubble—in just the past few years, we have more than tripled our number of employees.

AFN is one of the nation’s largest privately held mortgage companies with the resources to compete on a national level with the largest publicly held banks. Based in Brea, California and founded in 2001, AFN is an agency-direct lender with delegated authority to underwrite, fund, and service Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, USDA, VA, and Jumbo loan products in-house. AFN has more than 220 branches supporting hundreds of Loan Officers across the nation.

AFN understands that our industry is built on relationships and strengthened through personal and professional loyalties. The AFN family is comprised of talented, loyal and committed individuals who truly support one another. Our sales team knows they can trust in this family spirit.

They trust that corporate will provide the leadership cutting edge technology and full range of products and services they need to reach their goals.

AFN is a continually evolving

mortgage lender that combines the platform, technology,

product offering, and pricing of a large banker with the family atmosphere feel of a small lender. We nurture the entrepreneurial spirit in our branch managers and help them meet their business aspirations. Their income is only capped by their motivation level. Most of our executives came up through origination at one point, so we appreciate the importance of performing for our clients and referral partners. We deliver on service by utilizing a great team of operations personnel and a very efficient use of technology. We focus on eliminating redundancies, automating tasks and streamlining the movement of data to the many people who need to work on each file. We always have a pipeline of new improvements that will continue to set us apart from our competition. In an industry that has become increasingly commoditized over the years with less to differentiate competitors, our focus on support and service is what sets us apart.
