Our Company Origins

FROM THE BEGINNING

In 1990, Carlos Matos, the co-founder of 1st Florida

Lending Corp. started his career in the real estate and

mortgage industry as a mortgage originator in 1990

and soon after obtained his mortgage broker license

operating his own network branch for a nationwide

lender.

By 2006, when the financial crisis had fully consumed

many of the banks and financial services organizations

in the country at the time. Many highly talented

mortgage brokers were left with some options. Either

leave the industry they loved or move forward on your

own.

In the case of Carlos Matos, the decision was to move

forward. With 15 years of Mortgage experience and

having closed hundreds of millions in loans at his

branch operation.

Carlos and his partner formed 1st Florida Lending

Corp in 2007, which is now marketed under several

brands and has more than quadrupled in size under

his leadership.

However, the best validation comes from the clients

themselves and 1st Florida Lending Corp., has quickly

obtained the reputation of an organization that

focuses on service and the borrower experience.
