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.

Conventional

Conventional

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.
FHA

FHA

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.

I cannot say enough great things about Leslie Catabay at Guild Mortgage. From the moment we reached out to her for pre-approval, she was on top of everything and guided us through the entire process with ease. Leslie took the time to understand our needs and budget, and structured multiple loan scenarios for us to consider based on the purchase price and down payment requirements. She was even able to help us close a week earlier than expected, which was such a pleasant surprise. Her attention to detail and expertise in the industry truly set her apart. Not only was Leslie a pleasure to work with, but her communication style is second to none. She kept us informed every step of the way and was always available to answer any questions we had. Her professionalism and dedication to her clients is truly commendable. I also want to give a shoutout to Leslie's business partner, Benjamin, who was also instrumental in helping us secure our loan. Together, they make a dynamic team that goes above and beyond for their clients. Overall, I highly recommend Leslie Catabay at Guild Mortgage to anyone in need of a home lender. She exceeded all of our expectations and made the home buying process a breeze. Thank you, Leslie and the entire Guild Mortgage team, for all of your hard work and dedication!

Working with Leslie for the loan on my new home was a very pleasant experience. I was apprehensive and intimidated by all of the details, but Leslie's knowledge and enthusiasm reassured me throughout the process. I am very satisfied with the mortgage for my new home! Leslie was responsive and available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. She was sincerely interested in making sure I understood all aspects of the loan and what to expect during each stage of the approval process. I look forward to working with her on my next home purchase or my possible refinance when interest rates come down.

I recently worked with Leslie on a home purchase in Portland for my buyers. She did a fantastic job and I was very impressed. Her communication was outstanding and was WAY above the norm for the industry, and her diligence and proactive nature helped to avoid a few problems before they became real issues. We closed successfully and it was a great experience for both myself and our mutual buyers and, without reservation, I would absolutely recommend Leslie to any agents and/or buyers in the Portland and Vancouver areas.

I was referred to Leslie for our mortgage due to her love for working with first-time home buyers and she did not disappoint. Right from the start she was available at all time of the day and week to aid in making the home buying process as smooth as possible. Leslie was a great communicator with us, as the buyers, and our realtor. With weekly checks ins via phone and email I was always kept up to date with the process of our loan and the buying process. With the help of Leslie and her team, we were able to buy our first home in less then two months from the start of the process to the finish.
