Loan Originator Specializes in Home Loans for Qualified Immigrants

I sincerely love helping those members of the immigrant community who qualify achieve the ultimate American dream – home ownership.

New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of First Choice Bank, announced the addition of Ernesto Borunda as a loan originator specializing in residential mortgages for qualified borrowers who have immigrated to this country.

Before joining First Choice Loan Services, Borunda served as a loan originator with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and CTX Mortgage, a sales manager with Bank of America, a branch manager with First National Bank of Arizona and chief operating officer with Partisan Alliance Corporation. Borunda’s main professional focus is using his mortgage industry expertise he’s gained over the years to benefit qualified homebuyers immigrating to the United States.

“I have a strong passion for serving the immigrant community, specifically those who qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) provided by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). These particular homebuyers have an extra amount of stress on them as they tend to encounter additional challenges outside of the home buying process,” said Borunda. “While other mortgage lenders are not familiar with the home loan options offered to this community of homebuyers, I am, and with the strength, stability and backing of First Choice Loan Services, I’m able to help qualified immigrant homebuyers know they home financing choices and provide them a smooth mortgage experience.”

Branch Manager Robert (“R.J.”) Crosby is glad to have Borunda on his team of loan originators.

“First Choice really has a strong belief in and sense of family, and for that reason, Ernesto is a great fit to this mortgage team in Scottsdale,” said Crosby. “Ernesto works hard to help families come together and find homes. His particular dedication to the immigrant community is especially admirable. He is deeply committed to helping this underserved population and sharing mortgage opportunities that may exist for them.”

“Many individuals within the immigrant population refer to themselves as ‘DREAMers’ because they find hope for their future through the proposed Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. While a federal version of this act has not passed, many states have their own version of this legislation under the same name,” said Borunda. “When I remember that these are my clients, I consider it an honor. I sincerely love helping those members of the immigrant community who qualify achieve the ultimate American dream – home ownership.”

Borunda earned his bachelor of science in management from the University of Phoenix. More information on his professional services for qualified immigrant home borrowers can be found at
