I believe that educating the client is paramount for a smooth transaction. Clients put their trust in me that I will deliver the rate, costs, products and time frames that I have promised. I hold that trust and promise in the highest regards and work tenaciously to earn it.

Kurt Cymerint is the founder and CEO of AdvantageFirst Lending and one of the most respected mortgage brokers in all Southern California. For over 12 years, Kurt has guided hundreds of happy families through some of the most tumultuous real estate markets in history and helped them find the perfect loan for their dream house.

Kurt is leading the mortgage industry through his commitment to total transparency. He works tirelessly to build honest relationships with his clients through patient and open dialogue. He is known for his compassion and for over-delivering on his promises to his clients.

Starting in 2005, Kurt joined Solstice Capital (a member of HSBC). He was the #1 producer in terms of both units and loan volume, beating out over 150 other loan officers all 3 years he worked there.

Recognizing a rising star, Kurt was recruited in 2009 by LoanDepot. After just 6 months Kurt was the #1 mortgage banker. He was promoted to Sales Manager where he built one of the company’s top-producing sales teams over the next 3 years.

In 2012, Kurt took an important step in his career by joining Home Financing, Inc. As an associate broker, Kurt was given a larger leadership role and spearheaded the development of a brand-new referral-based business model. Over the next 2 years Kurt was once again the top mortgage banker in units and loan volume.

2014 was by far the most exciting year for Kurt as he launched his own full service mortgage company, AdvantageFirst Lending Inc. With an unwavering commitment to doing the right thing and putting the customer first, Kurt leads a world-class team of licensed mortgage bankers committed to treating every client like family. Kurt specializes in jumbo, conventional, FHA, reverse purchase, and refinance loans. But he is particularly passionate about Veterans Affairs loans and helping the men and women who serve our country find new homes or save money on their current mortgages.

Outside of business, Kurt is married to the love of his life, Randi, and is the father of two boys Noah and Isaac, and a pretty brown Boxer named June. Kurt is an avid mountain biker and runner and completed his first half-marathon in September, 2016. He’s a football fanatic and plays in 3 fantasy football leagues. He’s a sushi connoisseur and always orders his fries “Animal Style” at In-n-Out. Above all else, Kurt’s top priority is being a loving husband and father to his family.



Kurt is the best lender I have ever dealt with.  We are on our 4th home and no other lender even comes close to the experience my wife and I had with AdvantageFirst.  He was up front, honest, always answered his phone and responded immediately to text messages.  Most of the paperwork was handled online with docusign.  Kurt made it easy and less stressful.  Anytime I felt a little stressed, Kurt always assured us that everything was in good shape.

We recently completed a refinancing with AdvantageFirst Lending, obtaining a new 1st mortgage.  The staff was a great help and the loan was completed in under 30 days with a very good rate and low fees.  I would highly recommend AdvantageFirst if you are considering a new loan or a refinance.  The paperwork was kept to a minimum and the staff was very responsive and helpful.  The level of service was better than I have experienced with previous refinancing.

My fiancée and I are first-time home buyers. I was nervous to find a lender. Kurt was highly recommended by family, so I reached out to him. I came into that meeting with a huge list of questions that Kurt answered with patience, kindness and understanding. He never made us feel belittled by our lack of knowledge and was always available to answer every question at every turn. We were able to close in 23 days!!! This was one of the best customer experiences of my life!!

We have had the great pleasure of working with Kurt Cymerint and AdvantageFirst Lending for a few years.  Along with doing what all great companies do, AdvantageFirst goes the extra mile.  Yes, they are proactive, and honest, and easy to work with.  But, what sets AdvantageFirst apart from the crowd is that we have never had a disgruntled or uninformed client.  Everyone at AdvantageFirst does a wonderful job of educating, communicating and standing behind their reputation to bring the transactions to a close and keep their clients happy.
