About Us

The story of Guardian Mortgage begins in 1965 when a young man of common sense and uncommon smarts had a better idea. While building homes in Grand Blanc, Michigan, Jack Sweet saw firsthand how confusing and difficult it was for his home buyers to go through the loan process. He knew there had to be an easier way.

Jack believed most home mortgage lenders were missing the mark on customer service. He wanted to treat customers the way he would want to be treated—by offering advice on which loan options best fit their needs and walking them through each step of the way.

So, our enterprising founder set out to create a better kind of mortgage company: one built on integrity, superior customer service, and mutual trust. The way Jack saw it, customers would not only come back again and again if they were treated right, they’d also refer their families and friends.

Guardian Mortgage flourished. Customers appreciated the respectful treatment, honesty, and sound advice Guardian offered. As Jack had predicted, they spread the word far and wide about a different kind of home mortgage company.
