  • Scott and his team at FFF we fabulous! I worked very closely with Kristine Acosta and she was nothing short of amazing. She was quick to answer any questions I had about the mortgage process and had the patience to deal with some unexpected “drama” towards the end of my loan. Thank you again for all your help!

  • Chris Miller was awesome throughout the whole process. He helped me run scenarios at different price points, rates, and down payment amounts ahead of buying. He was available throughout the whole process to answer even the smallest questions. Our only hiccup was around the appraisal and we worked through that. I’d recommend Chris and team for your home purchase.

  • Working with Vince was an absolute pleasure. He was always available and would take my calls and answer my questions whenever I needed and it didn't matter if it was 7:30 am or 9 pm. Vince was so informative and patient and made our first mortgage experience amazing. I would recommend him to any friends or family in search of a traditional mortgage or construction loan.

About Scott

Scott Weikel is the Chief Executive Officer and co-owner of Family First Funding and handles the day-to-day operations.  Mr. Weikel’s main responsibilities involve overseeing FFF’s financial and human resources and the organization at large, while developing and implementing high-level strategies and setting the company’s direction.  Mr. Weikel started his professional career as an auditor with Ernst & Young in New York City.  He then moved to American Express where he worked as a financial analyst before becoming the Operations Manager for the New York Consumer Products Division of Arthur Andersen.

After owning a couple of Recruiting and Headhunting Firms in Manhattan, Mr. Weikel found an excellent reason to move into the Mortgage Industry.  Coming from previously highly regulated industries, Mr. Weikel saw an opportunity by using his previous experience to tackle the newly higher regulated Mortgage Business by implementing excellent internal controls, and embracing the new compliance rules.  One of his favorite comments is “Have you seen the movie Forrest Gump?  Remember when the shrimp boats were all wiped out by the storm and there was only one boat left?”  Mr. Weikel understands that the “storm” has come…and with all of the new regulations, many of the mortgage banks will be “wiped out” because they refuse to follow the new rules.  Mr. Weikel strongly feels that with his company’s strong ethics and compliance to the new rules, Family First Funding will be around for a long time.
