Top Participating Lending Company Named for 1st Quarter

February 08, 2023

Guild Mortgage is our Top Participating Lending Company for the first quarter of FY23, closing the most home loans this quarter using our homeownership financing options. We asked Guild Mortgage lenders about their goals for the new year.

"The goal for our team in 2023 is closely tied to the mission of impacting and improving the lives of others through responsible homeownership. 2023 is a year for providing more education for our borrowers and insuring they are well equipped to make the best decision for their family. This involves showing them all the options that are open to them and how they can leverage this one transaction to have a major impact on their future and improve their quality of life."

Chase Rogers, Guild Mortgage, Helena

"As loan officers, every year we want to get more and more families into new homes. We are always striving to do better than the previous year, not only for ourselves, but for these other families that we help. Since the beginning, relationship building has been a goal of mine and it will continue to be a main focus in my career. It is important to go beyond the numbers and make sure with every client and each referral partner that I am building a strong relationship based on trust, integrity, consistency and accountability. My goal for this year is to continue committing daily to these relationships and to always keep refining and improving my skills so that I am ready to help the next family.

"AHFA’s programs have played a great role in helping home buyers with no down payment. I was honored to be Processor of the Year for AHFA in 2008 and I am thankful to still be able to take part in their programs as a loan officer. I am extremely grateful that our company gets to be a partner with AHFA and build these relationships together."

Miranda Kelley, Guild Mortgage, Oxford/Gadsden

"My biggest goal/resolution is to be able to assist at least 75 new homebuyers in central Alabama. We can do this through education, follow up, and guidance."
