Founding partners Alex Barnett, Anthony Balsamo and Trevor Gates came together in 2006 with a simple vision in mind: To build a direct lending company that put the clients’ best interest above all else. In an industry once plagued by unethical practices, the three industry peers sought to open a business that not only offered exceptional service and rates with a transparent process, but that also put integrity at the forefront and thus IFFG (Integrity First Financial Group) was born.
With a unique approach that embraces technology and a streamlined process, IFFG has grown into one of the most respected and recognized online direct lenders in the nation. Now lending in 12 states, we are proud to have helped finance thousands of loans, helping Americans find, keep and afford their dream homes.
Putting the clients’ needs first, the focus of IFFG has been on a constantly changing process that creates efficiency and reduces the cost of closing loans. The savings are then passed on to the customer allowing them to save their hard earned money for the things that are truly important.
