I was searching for a new home, and my real estate agent recommended Chris Bodin with Guild Mortgage. He called me immediately to talk through my options for financing. I was a first time home buyer, with a single income, so the thought of a mortgage payment was a bit intimidating.<br/><br/>It was around Halloween, and as I walked the aisles of Party City, Chris calmly talked me through my options. He found government programs that I was able to utilize in order to get myself and my children into a home. He also worked very closely with my agent, and all of the parties involved in the sale.<br/><br/>The sellers agent requested the loan be closed within 30 days, instead of the “normal” 45 days. Chris ensured they could get this done. The only things I had to do was provide the documentation they requested, and Guild had everything ready to go for the sellers within three weeks. Chris has been helpful in explaining the government programs I am now utilizing. I was very impressed with his knowledge, and he found the programs that would work best for me. <br/><br/>I have continued to contact Chris even after the closing of my home, and he has made it clear again and again, that if I have any questions or concerns he is always available. When tax time comes around next year, I am sure I will be calling him again! As someone who is in a customer service role myself, and who thrives on giving quality customer service, he far exceeded my stringent expectations and what I think people deserve. There is no comparison for the peace of mind that kind of customer service offers.<br/><br/>With his assistance, myself and my boys are now in our own home for the first time, and nothing I can say can describe how much that means to me. I am truly grateful for the team of people I had on my side when buying my home.

My husband and I looked for our first home to buy for over a year. We decided to go with Chris Bodin of Guilde Mortgage after receiving poor service and a deal that fell through with another mortgage company. Being "scared" from this other company, I didn't have high expectations... but Chris definitely turned my experience into an extremely positive one! Here are a few of the MANY reasons why I highly recommend Chris (AKA: The Bodinator):

Demeanor-- Chris is extremely relational and easy-going. There were countless times that I called him panick-stricken, overwhelmed, and stressed out, but his sense of calm and confidence to take care of business always eased my mind. Chris is personable, charismatic, and he has a great sense of humor.

Business Conduct-- Chris conducts business in a trustworthy and transparent manner. If there is ever an obstacle to overcome, he will flat out bring it up and tell you how he will fix it. He makes it so that you are completely aware during the entire process and he is always available to take calls and answer questions. He will do ANYTHING to make sure that your deal closes and he tries to make the process as easy on you as possible. I love that he is technologically savvy-- we pretty much went through the entire loan process online (but he was always willing to drive to us if needed--we live about 50 miles from his office). He made everything so easy.

Knowledge-- Chis knows everything there is to know about various types of loans and financing. He truly did work out the best deal for us. We had a couple different options for financing our loan and we qualified for a few first time home buyer programs. Chris crunched all the numbers and was able to show us on paper the best deal and he fought for us to have a really low interest rate.

Customer Advocate-- I can truly say that Chris was an advocate for us and he was 'on our side' throughout the entire process. While we were in underwriting, his underwriter was being rather tough to work with and required numerous stipulations prior to the final approval of our loan. Chris was able to negotiate with the underwriter and this created less work and hassle for us at the end of our loan. At one point the underwriter requested a last minute pest inspection days before closing and Chris got his office to pay for the cost. He also scheduled the inspection in record time so that it wouldn't interfere with closing.

We utilized a USDA loan and the Government shutdown had us in Limbo for about 2 weeks. Chris made it so that our file was ready and waiting to be submitted to USDA when the goverment shut down ended. He kept me informed daily because he knew I was worried about closing late. We did end up closing a little later than planned, but it was at no fault of Chris (it was the Government shutdown that caused the delay). Chris fought for us every step of the way and he ensured that our loan would be taken care of at all costs.

We went through so much to get our house, and I owe Chris all the thanks. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be writing this review from the living room in my new house right now. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him. If you want someone who will fight for you, take care of you, inform you, and get the best deal for you, then look no further-- the BODINATOR is your answer.
