Buying a home is one of the most impactful purchases one can make. In addition to creating a financial foundation, a home becomes the platform where a lifetime of memories are made. And while the home buying process is not without its challenges, purchasing your dream home doesn’t mean doing it all on your own.

That’s why we’re excited to launch our Empowering Homeownership campaign. This program highlights powerful stories of five FirstBank customers facing unique challenges on their way to securing a mortgage with FirstBank.

Meet Our Customers

We understand that not every situation fits into a perfect box and we strive to assist people on an individual level. Spread across our major trade areas (Colorado, Phoenix, Ariz., and Palm Desert, Calif.), our Empowering Homeownership stories exemplify a few unique challenges facing home buyers and the ways that we help overcome them.

We’ll share one unique story every week, so follow us on our social channels to stay up to date on the latest stories.


Terry | Palm Desert, CA

Terry and his partner tried to purchase their first home in 2016, but soon found themselves on shaky ground. FirstBank helped them find stability and lay down roots in their favorite town.


FirstBank believes that everyone deserves more than a house, they deserve a place to truly call home, and we make obtaining a mortgage as simple as possible with low rates and fees, local decision-making and one point of contact for customers. Our loan officers do not receive mortgage commissions and are focused only on finding the right mortgage product for each customer, based your particular needs.

See what it’s like to work with a bank where real people, just like you, make decisions; where you are heard and supported, even when things get tough. That is banking for good, and it’s how FirstBank empowers homeownership. For more information on FirstBank’s mortgage offerings and process, visit our mortgage page.

We’ve created a list of resources that cover all you need to know before, during, and after your purchase. Visit FirstBank’s Smart Cents Blog for all the latest tips and tricks.
