Hear the Difference

We have been working with Guild for over 12 years. They are a pleasure to work with and we have appreciated our business partnership with them. They provide excellent client services. They have a dedicated staff with knowledge, experience and longevity. They also offer free webinars on important and relevant information and keep us up to date on program and industry changes. We would recommend Guild Correspondent to anyone who might be looking for a solid investor to partner with.

Lisa Tinker VP, Real Estate Lending, Intrepid Credit Union

As a small credit union who is looking to greatly expand our mortgage department, we couldn’t make it happen without our partnership with Guild Correspondent. Guild has offered guidance, training and support to our team since day one. From their account executives to their underwriters to post closing, they always have an open door policy that has been greatly beneficial in helping us grow our business.

Penny Hensley Sr. VP, First South Financial Credit Union

We truly enjoy our relationship with Guild. They are always willing to help myself and my team. They are always available, have fast response times and truly care about building their relationship with their correspondents. We highly recommend doing business with Guild Correspondent.

John Whitson Residential Real Estate Manager, Central Bank & Trust

For many years we have worked with Guild and I have found them to be very knowledgeable, helpful and consistently have competitive rates. They are quick and easy to fund on the back end and have marketing tools that have assisted us in growing our business. Guild is able to fill certain buckets that other investors cannot.

KJ Harden VP, Mrtg. Ops. Manager, First National Bank of Middle Tennessee

Guild Mortgage’s service is excellent, and they are very responsive to our ideas and needs. Their Correspondent Division works with us as part of our team, and everyone is friendly and willing to assist. We are very pleased, and probably 80% of our volume is directed to them.
