John was great throughout the entire process. He was recommended to me by several other lenders for a unique home equity loan situation. He was very prompt at returning calls and answering any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout the entire process. He managed to get us the positive equity cash out that we needed and met all of our requirements on the re-finance. I would absolutely recommend him for anyone looking to refinance or purchase a home.

I can't say enough positive things about John Babson. He made what appeared to an intimidating process for a first time borrower as easy as could be. He was able to explain difficult concepts in simple terms and never failed to immediately answer any questions or concerns that I had. The process could not have been any smoother or efficient. I highly recommend calling John and Guild for your mortgage needs!

John is a top notch guy! From the very beginning he always had the answer to any question I asked or explanation that I needed. My home purchase was a littleunique compared to others and John was dedicated from start to finish. I had spoken with a few other lenders prior to finding John and none of them seem interested after the first conversation never returning phone calls or emails. John was extremely punctual always answering the phone or an email. If he was unable to he always replied promptly making me feel as if I and my gone purchase were an actual priority to him. He is a very easy guy to work with and he made the entire process a breeze I highly recommend him.
