I’ve found my lender partner, Jesse and Cynthia team, to help homebuyers achieve their homeownership goal! Their vast loan program options (down payment assistance, conventional, FHA, CalFHA, in-house, out-sourcing, loan terms flexibilities) are incredible. You don’t know a fantastic lender until you’ve experienced the Jesse and Cynthia team.
Working with an experienced lender and a do-er is a game changer for me and for the clients. Jesse’s depth of knowledge in loan structuring and Guild Mortgage’s vast loan program options resulting the best loan tailored for each home buyer needs. I’ve closed down payment assistance loan program, conventional, and FHA loan programs seamlessly with Jesse.
Everything went incredibly smoothly, and we were able to close escrow in just 17 days! The team exhibited exceptional knowledge and responsiveness throughout the process. They patiently addressed all of our questions and handled every detail with care. This experience proved to be the best investment for us as first-time homebuyers.
I was recommended by a friend to talk to Cynthia my experience was excellence with Guild Mortgage I personally can not rated Cynthia at all because I only was able to get of hold of her a few times she was too busy but I definitely can recommend Jesse he walked me through the whole processed and it felt pretty smooth Jesse definitely has a 10 for me.
