Good advice, walking us thru each step of the process, and providing options. He and his team were every mindful of the schedule and keeping us aware of what we needed to do and when. The e-signiture process worked well, just a lot of documents to review and sign. Mark and his his team were always available, even on Saturday mornings or late Saturday afternoon. They were very patient with all our questions. It was a pleasure working with them. This is our 2nd mortgage thru Guardian Mortgage, although the 1st was over 30 years. Thank you for helping us on this home.

Mark is awesome in all aspects of the process. His communication skills are excellent. He helped us throughout all aspects of the process to make it a seamless process. Could not have been more happier than to have Mark as our loan officer. Clone if you can:)

Mark has always been great at explaining the process and options available, and helping us to find what will best meet our goals and needs. Guardian always has some of the best rates in the current market, and their online account management is very user friendly. I always refer my real estate clients, friends, and family members to Guardian!
