About Me

I have been in the Real Estate Industry since 1996.  I am a Southern California native and a graduate of Rancho Santiago Community College and California State University Fullerton.

My knowledge, experience, honesty, and access to different loan products makes a significant difference in your real estate transaction.  This is what I bring to the table.  I specialize in asking the right questions, looking at the bigger picture, and educating you throughout the loan process.  It is important to understand that not all borrowers are the same.  There are several factors that determine the type of loan you qualify for, the interest rate associated with the loan, and how they help you reach your short and long-term goals.  Whether you are a first time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, moving up, downsizing, buying an investment property, or refinancing, I can help you find the right solution to your home financing needs. 

My team at Guild prides itself in providing excellent customer service that exceeds client's expectations from the beginning of the process to the end.  We integrate high technology using today's modern tools along with the personal touch required during your real estate transaction.  We strive to be as a trusted resource for you on all your real estate transactions and look forward to earning your business!

Scott was exceptional! He kept the ball moving for us and communicated frequently about how things were going and when/if he needed information from us. We’re very grateful. Icing on the cake was the pizza delivered for us on our move in day. They know how to take care of people!!

The communication with Scott and his team was excellent. The portal to upload documents was user friendly. Scott and his team always followed up and met all deadlines required.

Scott was great. He updated all of us every week. We closed the escrow without any problem.

Scott Chaplin was truly excellent. Really knows his stuff, but will patiently explain everything in a way that a first-timer like me can actually understand. He loves what he does, it's obvious, and he's always available if you need (he was even right there with an answer on a Sunday when my realtor had a question). He also really cares and takes a personalized approached to making sure you have the strongest offer and get the best rates and exactly what you need. I'd worked with a couple of other loan officers/mortgage brokers in the past, and Scott surpassed them without question.

Where do we start? Scott and his team made our first time purchase an absolute breeze. He is professional, detail-oriented, and really takes the time to walk you through the process at every step. His integrity and experience in the industry are unmatched. I strongly recommend him to anyone. My husband and I couldn't be happier!

Scott is THE BEST to work with when buying a home. He makes the process so smooth and is always looking to put the client in their best financial situation. Scott is very informative and always keeps the client up to date on new developments. He is great at checking in to make sure he can answer any questions. He was a joy to work with!
