Seth was so easy to work with, he listened to what we wanted/needed, and he was great at communication. Due to things outside of Seth's control, Guild was not able to do the loan for the house we ended up buying; but I really appreciated the work Seth put in to try and make it work. I would absolutely work with Seth again.

We have used Seth on two purchases and a refinance on our home, and I wouldn't think about going to anyone else. Seth was always available to provide us with scenarios and pre approval letters when we needed them (and in this market, we needed them all the time). He had great communication with us and our agent. If you're looking for a loan officer, you found him. There is no one better!

Stephanie Wood is an amazing loan officer! We felt like we were her highest priority throughout the entire process. When issues came up with the sellers and the closing dates, Stephanie did not flinch and said yea we can do that. Stephanie made magic happen for us we ended up closing on our dream home way faster than expected. Thank you for your hard work and dedication, and for helping us get our dream house.

Kelly has made my entire home purchasing experience phenomenal! I've worked with other lenders and loan officers before however no one is as meticulous responsive and helpful as Kelly. Kelly thank you so much for your due diligence. You're an amazing person to work with and because of you I have an amazing perception of Guild Mortgage!

Kelly was amazing from the beginning of the process to the very end and after. She made this process seamless and was a step ahead of things to make sure we kept things progressing. I will definitely recommend her and her staff.

Kelly Ollendorff was AMAZING from start to finish. She successfully got me to the finish line and worked through issues encountered during the home buying process. Overall she is very responsive and professional; always willing to answer any questions. As a first time home buyer I am happy that Kelly was my loan officer.
