I understand there’s a lot that goes into lending and the process can feel really overwhelming, especially for first-time homebuyers. That’s where my team comes into play – we are here to take the stress off your shoulders and make sure your loan closes without a hitch. Experience is key in this ever-changing market, and you’ll find my team has the skills and knowledge to make your loan process run smoothly.

My team is local to the Tahoe-Truckee community and we understand this market well. We have deep-rooted relationships with business partners all over the region and clients find our network and expertise helps their offers stand out.

I had a client that was shopping his own resources that were advertising great loan perks. It was a multiple offer situation requiring competitive timing. I referred him to Guild knowing they would perform on time and offer true representation of rates and loan fees. Chelsy was able to relay all that Guild could do and he chose her and Guild mortgage and the escrow actually closed early!

Katie and team were great. They were responsive, on top of it, and knew how to move our mortgage application forward. There were a lot of pieces to our application (buying a second home with HELOC as down, two HOAs involved, renegotiation of the sales price, etc) and we managed to close on time.

Amazing experience as always! I appreciate the dedication through long or difficult deals. It's nice not to worry how the loan is progressing during escrow, because I know Guild has it covered!

Chelsy, our Loan Officer, went above and beyond to guide us through the whole process. She was super responsive, and provided clear and precise information so that we could make informed decisions. I also appreciated the videos from Katie that helped explain certain parts of the process. Overall, a very friendly, efficient team!
