About Me

Homeownership is part of the American Dream.  For some, homeownership is providing their family with stability, privacy and comfort.  For others it allows them to express themselves and have more connection within their community.  And for all, it’s an achievement to feel proud of.  I have helped thousands of homebuyers achieve their goal of homeownership and I love being a part of something so important and rewarding to each of them.   

I have been in mortgage banking since 1990, starting in operations and transitioning to Loan Officer in 2004.  It is my nature to educate and help others whenever I can.  Everyone has a different goal, history and circumstances that we take into consideration to find the best loan program to meet them individually.  Our Lancaster operations team has worked together for years (dating back to 1990 and before, most recently as Residential Mortgage Services) and have processes in place to provide a smooth transaction for your purchase or refinance.  We have built long term relationships internally and with our clients, helping some more than twice or thrice with their financing needs.  I sincerely look forward to developing that same relationship with you on your next purchase or refinance. 

I am licensed in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.  I live in Lancaster County with my husband of a few (38) years.  We have four wonderful adult children that require us to travel when we visit.  We have two beagles that 100% meet the definition of a hound dog.  I also enjoy reading, music, exercise, outdoors and good food.

Shelly’s expertise and guidance was invaluable. She patiently guided us through the process of securing our mortgage as we moved from MA to PA. She promptly replied to all of our questions and even joined us at our closing! This is our fifth home mortgage and the service from Guild Mortgage far surpasses the lenders.

I highly recommend working with Shelly Burkholder at Guild Mortgage. We are seasoned home buyers, and this was by far our best experience with a lender. Shelly was always available to help answer any questions, and we felt that she was looking out for our best interest during the home buying process. If we had to do it all over again, we'd give Shelly a call before anyone else.

Shelly did a fantastic job taking us through the process. She patiently answered all of my questions and kept us informed of how things were progressing with paperwork, approvals, etc. Shelly was available to us to help with any pre-approval letters, questions and reviewing the numbers several times on evenings and weekends which was the best time for us. We have never worked with a lender who has such experience, friendly, yet professional, demeanor and was someone who we felt was looking out for our best interest through the entire process. Bravo to Shelly and her team at Guild.
