Why Guardian is The Better Choice

The service, our people: We truly put the customer first, and do what it takes.

Our flexibility and understanding: We have the knowledge to work through solutions with customers and can provide a lending experience with both product offerings and services that others can't match.

Our product offerings go beyond the limiting restrictions of other companies.

We service the loan through the life of the loan in most cases.

We've been around since 1965 and survived many difficult periods in the real estate market.

We Are With You, Every Step of the Way

Step 1: Pre - Qualification

This is the start of a long friendship. Pre-Qualification gives eligible customers the likely assurance of a loan even before choosing a home. This provides you with the peace of mind to search for homes within a comfortable price range

Step 2: Loan Options

We have a variety of home loan options to match your financial needs. At this step, Guardian verifies your ability to repay the home loan and locks in your interest rate.

Step 3: Loan Processing

Throughout this step, our Processing team is busy on your behalf, keeping the application process in motion through verification of employment, residential appraisal, collection of additional documents, and more.

Step 4: Underwriting

Using the gathered data, documents, and appraisal, underwriters determine whether the loan presents an acceptable level of risk – the final approval/rejection for the mortgage – and meets all required guidelines for the loan program.

Step 5: Closing Documentation

You're almost there! At this step, the loan file goes through a pre-closing review for quality assurance and the closing instructions are prepared.

Step 6: Loan Closing

The Borrower receives an approved Closing Disclosure Statement 24 to 48 hours prior to closing. The Borrower, a title company representative, and a Guardian Mortgage loan originator meet to sign and make copies of the mortgage loan documentation. Then … Congratulations!

Step 7: Loan Servicing

Sit back and relax in your new home, while we take care of the administration aspects of your loan. Just continue to make timely payments on your mortgage and we’ll do the rest.
