Joel and Kerry were such a pleasure to work with during this whole process- I don’t think we could’ve done it without their guidance and expertise! They both had great communication and were quick to answer our endless questions! Luckily they both really know what they’re doing since I certainly didn’t as a first time home buyer! Thank you both so much!! :)

Joel and Kerry Harrison did an outstanding job in serving my mortgage needs. They reviewed numerous documents and provided a wide range of financing options. Everything was done very quickly and accurately. Also, besides their outstanding service, Joel and Kerry are truly a pleasure to work with. One more thing: Joel also did an outstanding job as my real estate agent; he handled a very complex transaction with great expertise. Joel is as good of a realtor as he is a mortgage broker.

They have access to a ton of different loan options which makes shopping around a lot easier. Also, they have a home-buying program where they can also act as the realtor. We just needed to find the home ourselves (easy enough!) and then they help navigate all of the paperwork. With this program, they were able to put a percentage of their commission towards closing costs. Lastly, I'm a first-time home buyer. It will probably be the biggest purchase of my whole life, so I was very nervous. But, Joel and Kerry were very patient with me and answered all of my questions without making me feel silly. I would recommend them and this program to anyone.

Joel and Kerri are both very professional and make the process of applying, qualifying, and securing a loan fast and easy. I have used ALA for several refinances and plan to use them again.

Thank you, Joel and Kerry Harrison, for everything you did and continue to do for us in the world of lending and mortgages. We cannot thank you enough for walking alongside us. We knew your expertise and professionalism but the extent to which you went the extra mile really means a lot. They are professional and kind and had great patience as we navigated the purchase of our first home. We highly recommend anyone reach out to Joel and Kerry!

My husband and I would like to send out a huge thank you to both Joel and Kerry from America’s Loan Advisors. We recently completed a second home refinance with them and I cannot say enough great things about how they conduct business. It was late afternoon when I had spoke to Joel about options that we had with our situation and telling him that we would like to proceed. The great thing I liked about my conversation with Joel was that he asked what I was trying to accomplish and then he provided me with a great option that accomplished what we were trying to do and in the process saved us a lot of money. Within a couple of hours of speaking to Joel, our rate was locked and initial disclosures were sent over for signing. This was done all after normal business hours. The communication was outstanding. Kerry always kept us up to date of everything that was happening with our refinance. We knew we would be leaving town within a few weeks of starting the process. I made both Joel and Kerry aware that we would be going out of town and we were actually signing all of our closing documents about a week and a half later and were fully closed withing two weeks. Thank you Joel and Kerry for your outstanding service. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend America’s Loan Advisors for all of your home loan needs.

Joel and Kerry Harrison are an incredible team! Joel is very knowledgeable and provided a detailed, yet easy to read and understand spreadsheet with my rate, payment, and savings options. Kerry was thorough and efficient at gathering the documents required for a clean loan approval quickly. From start to finish my refinance took less than 18 days with an appraisal. I absolutely will continue to use Joel and Kerry for all of my home loan needs and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced, trustworthy mortgage broker.
