About Don

I have worked as a Purchase Lending Specialist in Florida for over 12 years. During this time I’ve assisted hundreds of home buyers achieve home ownership.

In addition, I’ve assisted numerous homeowners better position themselves by refinancing and lowering their monthly mortgage payment.

I pride myself on the long term relationships I’ve cultivated with my clients as well as the top producing realtors in Florida and will continue to provide the excellent service they demand.


I just wanted to say. I am so lucky to be working with Don Estell. This could not of been a better match for me and all the clients we have shared. He showed up at our showing today and was an absolute rock star explaining everything and having a huge impact on getting the seller to write an offer for my buyer. We have a long way to go with this one but, I just wanted to say “Thank you” . The above and beyond customer service could not be more appreciated.

My wife and I were referred to Don through a friend after we were having difficulties with our local credit union. We are so glad we went with Equity Prime Mortgage. Don provided excellent customer service including calling on nights and weekends when we had questions or concerns. The rate was comparable to what the credit union quoted us and he was able to close on the house a full month earlier than the credit union. We highly recommend Don and Prime Equity Mortgage and will absolutely use them again in the future.

George and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our experience so personal. From the first call we made to you until we signed the last paper you made us feel secure and relaxed. You were very informative about all stages of the transaction. Your final touchdown was pushing through some paperwork that may have held us up. We will refer you to all we know. AWESOME is the best description.

Don did an awesome job for me and my wife as we got the home of our dreams when we were told no by all the others!!!

Don thank you so much for a banner year!

Keith Tillis, Borrower

Thank you so very much for pushing so hard on our home loan! Equity Prime Mortgage really came through for us! Don you said you could get it done in 2 1/2 weeks and YOU DID IT!!! You will never know how much that means to us.

We really needed to be closer to our daughter and family. She said it was the best Christmas present she ever had! Tomorrow night our grandsons will spend the night with us in our new home. We are settling in very well and it is all thanks to your team!

Thanks again Don, and Equity Prime Mortgage, for being there for us every step of the way. We were very pleased to meet you at our closing. Thanks for being there!! We will be most happy to recommend your firm in the future.

Earlier this year, we put an offer on another house. Our realtor at the time referred us to Don and we began the mortgage process with him. He was always so patient with all the questions I had, always explaining to make sure I understood the process and had all my questions answered. To everyone?s surprise, my husband and I decided not to go through with the purchase at the last minute. It wasn?t the right house for us. We felt terrible for all parties involved especially with all the work that was put in to making sure we met the closing date.

At the end of September, we found another house that we wanted that was for sale by owner. Since Don had all our information already, we called him and started the whole process again. His service was fantastic! Again, so patient with all my questions and always made sure my husband and I both understood the process and what was expected. I don?t know if because we went through the process, if it was because we were buying directly from the owner or this was meant to be our house but the whole house buying process was so easy, seamless, and painless. Of all the houses we bought, this was by far the best experience.

Don was able to have us close within 3 weeks of our offer being accepted. He was spot on with the amount of funds we needed for closing. We didn?t have any surprises. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home!

I cannot thank you enough for all you did yesterday to get Justin’s loan closed. I can’t believe you were willing to drive to West Palm Beach to get a signature!! I really appreciate how you jump in with both feet and do whatever it takes to get it done. You and your team saved the day and the deal, I am very grateful to work with such professionals. Thank you again, you knocked it out of the park yesterday.

Don was absolutely amazing! He And Janelle literally held my hand every step of the way! Being a 33 year old first time homebuyer and a single mother…. I needed that! I’m so pleased with there explaining my options. They never pressured me or made me feel like a question was stupid lol.

Don has spent a lot of time with us in helping with our mortgage (on our first home purchase) and raising our credit score. His advice has made the processes clear and concise. As complicated as navigating credit score and mortgages is we are so much better armed and prepared than we ever thought possible. My wife and I highly recommend him for his outstanding customer service and attention to detail. Every conversation we’ve had we leave feeling confident and set up for success.

The biggest most important thing is communication. Don stayed in constant contact. Making sure all questions were answered. Checking with each participant and keeping the process on track to close. most Lenders rarely call or answer their phone. Don was available and professional.

This was the most fast refinance I’ve ever experienced. Don was very professional and he gave me the lowest interest rate out of all the other lenders. I have already recommended him to several of my friends.
