Closed purchase loan. West Linn, OR

Mark was recommended by our real estate agent and was one of several we reviewed. We selected him and were impressed not only with the way he patiently outlined mortgage options for us but also changed budgets as our house hunt went on. He took time to explain options and offer visual aides and things we could take home to ponder which helped so much during the whirlwind activity of selling and buying. During crunch times of offers and closing he communicated not only with us but our agent to get everything done with perfect timing...a quick, seamless close. We also appreciated his support staff who asked for our paperwork and information then used it in an organized way....never losing it and asking for it again as some of our friends have experienced at other brokers. Thanks Mark and all!  More Less

Closed purchase loan. Gladstone, OR

After experiencing major setbacks in qualifying for a mortgage on a new home purchase due to marital support payments being viewed by FHA lenders as a judgement against me, my Realtor Ivy Chappelle of Keller Williams Realty suggested I contact Mark Charlton of Guild Mortgage. He was able to secure comparable funding at a competitive rate which led to the purchase and closing of my new home. He and his staff went above and beyond in helping me and I would hardily recommend him and Guild Mortgage in the future.  More Less

Mark made our first time home buying experience beyond easy. He is incredibly patient and knowledgeable and kind. He is who every home buyer hopes to have on their side. Mark and our realtor actually came out to our house for our first meeting, which in itself seems unheard of. I knew then that we would be in good hands. After the many horror stories we heard about purchasing a home, I didn't believe we were finished(even as we were moving our stuff in) because it was THAT EASY. We knew nothing going into this and Mark broke down everything into terms we understood. After giving us many options, he then narrowed them down to what would work best for us with the payment we were not willing to budge on. He made it so simple because he genuinly cares about his clients. We got the house we wanted and a friend for life with Mark. I will never recommend anyone but Mark for any real estate needs and we will never go to anyone but Mark for any of our future real estate needs. Mark and his team are beyond great at what they do. So thankful!  More Less
