Troy Bird has been in the mortgage banking industry for over 30 years and is known throughout the Sacramento region for his sincerity, integrity and honesty. Troy is committed to providing the best available programs to meet his client's needs - that's why he believes in working with Guild Mortgage.
Troy offers the best mortgage tools available. In addition to personal, face to face service, he offers easy, convenient, online shopping for the best loan programs and most current rates. These tools combined with Troy's assistance guide you through the often difficult and confusing process of choosing and getting the right loan to meet your specific needs.
In an interview with Troy regarding the challenges of today’s loan business, he states:
“The majority of today’s loans are processed through the internet using electronic applications and signatures so that face to face meetings are often unnecessary. But we’re talking about the single biggest investment most families make in their lives. My clients love the convenience, but I actually miss meeting with them because I feel it is so important to develop a relationship with them. And that relationship has to be founded on trust. So my challenge in today’s loan business is to convey that trust through the same technology that is providing convenience to my clients. That’s why I put together the video.”
Troy’s career has evolved from serving as a local mortgage consultant to also being an active, national member in the mortgage industry. Troy is now a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). He travels regularly to Washington DC with a consortium of peers to address mortgage industry issues with members of Congress. In one of Troy’s recent trips for the MBA’s National Advocacy Conference, he discussed obstacles home buyers face. Specific goals included:
- Preserve the existing deductibility of mortgage interest.
- Provide access to credit for all borrowers, regardless of income level.
- Maintain the stability of FHA which is critical to borrowers who have the income to make mortgage payments but require a smaller down payment to obtain their goal of home ownership.
Whether you're a First Time home-buyer interested in FHA, shopping for a Second Home, or interested in a Reverse Mortgage, VA, conventional financing, 203K or Jumbo loans, Troy Bird is an expert in all mortgage programs. More importantly, he's committed to serving your best interests.
A graduate of Christian Brothers High School and California State University, Sacramento, Troy remains active in the local community.
