Guild Mortgage—Financing the Life You Love

November 2018

Guild MortgageBecoming the number one home mortgage lender in the state of Oregon is no small feat, particularly at a time when mortgages aren’t easy to come by.

But that’s the spot that Guild Mortgage, located at 90 N. Main Street in downtown Ashland, has earned, and it’s easy to understand why. A nationally recognized mortgage banking company with 250 offices throughout the United States, Guild’s Ashland office treats customers with home-town attention and service.

Ashland loan officers Joan Broadfoot, Linda Read, and Andrea Zundel take pride in helping folks secure permanent residence in the town they love. They have a combined 55+ years of experience in providing loans, service and expertise to homebuyers, and are passionate about what they do.

“We follow a simple rule—do what’s right for our customers,” says Joan. “They are our peers, neighbors, friends, and family. We strive to be there for them from the first contact through to the closing and beyond. We help people with every home-buying decision, from purchasing a first home, to refinancing, to buying second homes or investment properties.”

When you work with one of Guild’s Ashland-based loan officers, Joan explains, you get exceptional service and the benefit of local support. Their customers consistently praise their professionalism, responsiveness and creativity in meeting any hurdles they might encounter during the loan process.

“We work to assure that buyers not only get fast, upfront pre-approvals, but they are also guided into the loan program that best fits their needs,” Linda said. “Throughout the mortgage process, customers benefit from the speed and flexibility of local processing, underwriting and funding. Those are significant factors in our ability to swiftly and efficiently close more purchase loans than any other lender in Oregon.”

Guild Mortgage has withstood the ups and downs of the real estate and financial markets, holding to its mission to provide affordable home financing, unsurpassed service, and a dedicated workforce that puts customers’ needs first. Joan noted that in an era when so much of the financing world has become high-tech and automated, she and her colleagues at Guild in Ashland value building and maintaining personal connections and relationships with clients.

Guild also gives back to the communities they serve. Andrea pointed to the company’s Guild Giving Foundation, which encourages volunteerism, supports financial literacy, and works to provide shelter and inspire positive change in towns across the country.

“Guild supports dozens of local and national charities nationally through direct donations and company-supported volunteer hours,” Andrea said.
