I couldn’t be happier with Ryan Smith and his entire team! I was buying my first home and they made the entire process as easy as possible. Very attentive, many times answering my questions before I asked. From start to finish they were amazing. Highly recommend Ryan and his team to anyone

Guild was amazing during our whole process. The best part of it in my opinion was we received weekly updates, unless we needed to know something right away. They helped us understand what exactly we were getting into. Helped keep my wife's and I mind at ease with making such a big life decision.

My partner and I recently sought pre-approval with Ryan and his team through a referral from one of his former colleagues, and we couldn't have had an easier or more transparent experience! Ryan and his team, at Guild Mortgage, ended up fully servicing our loan, referring us to an excellent realtor with whom they work closely, and we just closed on a house a week ago! The process was much smoother and quicker than we could have ever hoped! We are so happy.

A friend had recommended Guild Mortgage - Ryan Smith team and after working with them, I understand why he did. The Ryan Smith team is amazing to work with. They explain everything that they are doing, so you are well informed. Communication is great. The team responds very quickly; all my questions and concerns were addressed within a day. They are there for you every step of the way. We were able to purchase our first house very easily because of Ryan Smith and the team. Thank you Ryan Smith Team! 100% would recommend and will recommend!

My husband and I could not have been happier with the service we received from Ryan Smith and his team. Ryan spent time up front explaining mortgage options and the process for securing the mortgage in clear terms. His team's use of email/the online portal made communication simple. Most importantly, once we had an accepted offer, Ryan's team called once every Tuesday with an update, whether there was an update/action item or not. We never had to doubt or worry because Ryan's team was on top of it from start to finish. I went into the home buying process understanding the importance of our relationship with the realtor. I had no idea about the importance of a service-oriented lender. But Ryan Smith's team is just that. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I needed a mortgage.
