Athena Leventis was professional and proficient.

Athena and her team are the epitome of excellence. We have relied on their expertise for several mortgages including homes and investment properties in North and South Carolina. The process of getting funding for a mortgage is stressful and time-consuming. Athena's team helps to guide us through all of that and we're profoundly grateful.

I am grateful that these wonderful people helped to get me into my home. They are very interactive and helpful throughout the entire process which made it possible for me to become a homeowner. I am so happy and blessed to have been recommended to Athena and her amazing team.

I cannot recommend Athena Leventis and her team at Guild Mortgage highly enough. I have purchased many homes (we've moved a lot!) and there's nothing like a new adventure in a new home except you must get through the hassle of the dreaded loan process first. And before that in this market you have to compete aggressively with other buyers. Athena helped me get my dream home in one of the country's hottest markets where most people who need to get a loan don't "win the bid." But thanks to Athena being on-call and providing me with the letters I needed I WON! And I thought I was on to the miserable loan processing period I've experienced in the past but the misery never came. I uploaded documents once. The portal technology worked better than any other I've used. The communication was excellent. I always knew where I was in the process. The closing attorney and realtor even asked about my experience with Guild because they also noticed the wonderful communication that made their jobs easier. I had no idea this process could be so pleasant. I wish I'd found Athena and Guild sooner. Don't shop around. It doesn't get better than this team!

Athena and the Guild Mortgage team were well above expectations! I appreciated all the help they gave and will absolutely look to work with them again on a future purchase!
