Rick Hodges joined Guardian Mortgage in 1994 and for more than 23 years he and Guardian have remained true to their core values–honesty and ethical behavior in dealing with customers and Realtors. Rick has a passion for working with people, and enjoys forming relationships with clients built on trust. In his 23 years with the company he has helped homeowners and homebuyers with one of the most complex decisions they face, financing a new home. Many of Rick’s customers are people he’s done three or four loans for, loans for not only them, but now, their children.
Hodges explains his devotion to the mortgage industry, “The most gratifying aspect of my job in when my customers call me to ask a question about their mortgage we closed two, three, five or more years ago. I appreciate it because that means they know I was there to help them when they financed their home and years later I’m still there to help.” He goes on to say, “My clients know not to hesitate to contact me should they have questions about their current mortgage, prequalification for a new mortgage or any other home-financing needs. When you treat people with Integrity and work hard for them, they know they can trust me to be their lender for life. As I approach One Hundred Billion in closed mortgage loans, I owe that success to my many repeat customers, people that know and count on me because I’m honest, committed and confident in solving their home loan needs and helpful in making the process smoother. “
Rick feels very blessed in his personal and professional life and has been honored most recently with the 2017 Guardian Mortgage President’s Award.
