About Me

Over the years of working as a loan officer, I've been able to help over 1000 clients with their home loans. I’ve done just about everything and anything in my power to help people buy a home because I love what I do.

I love it not just for the numbers, or the rush of putting through a difficult application. It’s not just the interesting people I meet, or the team I work with at Guild, and it’s not even the company that supports my efforts. Thanks Guild!

I love what I do. It’s hard work that challenges me to problem solve daily; makes me push myself beyond a comfort zone; makes me strive to do better than I did the day before. But, it’s not just what my job does for me--that’s not the underlying reason why I love my job so much.

I love what I do because I’m like a fairy godmother--someone who helps people turn their dreams into reality. It doesn’t get much better when I see a family, a couple, an individual smile because they got the loan that got them the house they thought was only a dream. There’s no better feeling than helping people make their dreams come true--just like a fairy godmother.

I’m Amanda Rea with Guild Mortgage--fairy godmother loan officer--a woman with a dream of helping others make their dreams a reality.

Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.



A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.


If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.

Amanda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She communicated so well throughout the entire transaction, which is extremely important to me especially when working with first time buyers. She was always available via text or phone to answer questions and support our buyers on the financing side. She and her team made everything so smooth and we were clear to close with time to spare. Five stars for Amanda!

Amanda and her team went above and beyond for my husband and I when we purchased our new home back in January. Things went so smoothly, and they did everything they could to make sure we closed quickly as we had requested. They are the best. Starr & Karen Bridge

It was great to work with Amanda, Sarah and the rest of the team. At one point, four months before we were all done with our home construction I just needed some reassurance and Sarah was great. She answered all my questions and made me feel okay about the money, process and home. She was right, and the whole Guild team was very good to us and was quick to respond to our questions and concerns.
