United First Financial
|Headquarters||Bluffdale, Utah, USA|
United First Financial is a financial software services and support company that focuses primarily on mortgage and debt reduction. United First Financial, which offers a mortgage reduction program similar to the offset mortgage, won the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year regional awards in 2008.
In the late 1990s, Skyler Witman and John Washenko launched Accelerated Equity & Development, a mortgage company based in Bluffdale, Utah.
In 2009 the company had 60,000 distributors and 20,000 paying customers.
United First Financial uses a debt reduction technique very similar to the Australian mortgage. (Note -There is a lot of controversy to the validity of this type of mortgage. In Australia the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has taken several steps of action to reduce fraud with mortgage acceleration.) United First Financial uses a program called The Money Merge Account program, which uses existing banking tools, one-on-one coaching and a Web-based software tool to help consumers pay off their mortgages and consumer debt in a short amount of time.
The Headquarters is located at 120 E 13065 S, Draper, UT 84020, Bluffdale, Utah.
