About Me

The most difficult aspect of creating a positive customer service experience is correctly setting expectations and communicating thoroughly. It can't be done without a system and a team, and we have both. Buying a home is not something someone does regularly. For some, it is the biggest purchase of their lives. The client should have a detailed consultation, know exactly what to expect, and trust that the professional they've chosen has their best interests in mind and will steer them back onto the right course if something goes wrong. When we get to the closing table and a buyers tells me "there were no surprises, it went just like you said," that's the biggest compliment I can get.

Joe and his team took charge right away and frequently checked in on us throughout the entire process. The market is crazy right now so we were looking for a long time. Joe had multiple meetings with us to explain where we were in the buying process, how the market was looking and took time to teach us financial literacy specifically when it came to owning our first home. There was a sense of transparency through every step. Everyone we worked from Joe’s team was fantastic. Closing day was exciting but it was hard to say “so long” to the team!! Thank you guys!! Can’t wait to work with you all the next time we need a property!!

My family and I had a great home buying experience with Joe and his team. Joe was very outgoing and friendly. He was very knowledgeable and honest. We never felt like we were just another customer. His team worked fast and their communication with us was incredible. Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Joe Long and his team. We will most definitely be recommending him to anyone we know looking to buy a house. Thanks Joe!

Working with Joe Long and his Guild mortgage team was a dream. As first time home buyers, Joe sat with us and answered any questions or concerns we had during the process. His friendly, outgoing personality put us at ease during our meetings. We closed on our home with a very quick timeline and Joe's team was able to keep us informed and on track. We would highly recommend Joe and Guild Mortgage.

My husband and I recently worked with Joe Long and his team at Guild Mortgage and we are very happy with the experience. We bought our first home and are very stoked to move in! Originally we were working with a local bank during our home searching but kept finding that every seemingly great opportunity for homeownership was passing us buy as homes were going pretty quickly (in some cases overnight) but getting a response from the bank lender and trying to find time to meet in person with them just wasn't working. We were referred to Joe Long by our Realtors and as soon as we started to work with his team we were able to get information on homes we were interested in very quickly which made it so easy to determine whether it would be worth seeing certain homes or not. We were able to text Joe long, call him, video chat every now and then and didn't have to wait for weekdays to hear back. His team answered all of our questions and really did a great job making us feel comfortable throughout the whole process of buying our condo.

Joe and his team (Chelsea and Briana) were beyond amazing to work with!! This was my first house and I can't imagine things going any better. Whenever I had a question or concern, I got an answer typically within in minutes. Constant emails, phone calls and a text from Joe on closing date checking in which made me feel like I was part of the team and helped ease my anxiety. Overall, phenomenal experience!

Joe long with Guild Mortgage is simply the best. Personable dedicated to finding you the best rates and very knowledgeable. I felt informed every step of the way in the purchase of our home because of Joe and his team. Joe is a "one in a million" type of lender that everyone should choose-you won't be disappointed!
