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.
