"Greg helped my family with our home financing needs this past fall and let me tell you, choosing him for this need was a great and easy decision! Throughout the whole process, "("we had a very unusual and uncommon situation"), Greg had great communication, was very helpful, professional, and made my family feel like his. I highly recommend Greg and had a 10/10 experience with him."

George and his team are fantastic. We just used their services a second time to refinance our home. The team is attentive, detail oriented, and committed to doing the right thing for us as a customer. We can recommend to anyone!”

George and his team are fantastic! I've worked with them on multiple house purchases, and they are extremely thorough and timely. They always act in your best interest.”

"My boyfriend and I were referred to George by my boyfriend’s brother, who said George had the most personable staff, and that it was a very personable process. When we met with George I felt like I could ask any question and George would have an answer. He made it a personal, comfortable situation for us. We walked in with a lot of questions and nerves – my boyfriend was saying “I don’t know if we can do this” but George put us at ease.

A year prior we called a lender and got pre-approved over-the-phone. Then we never heard from that lender again. George wanted to meet us face-to-face so we sat down with him and thought “OK, we can do this.”

Going into it, we knew we needed to provide info. We knew about interest rates and down payments but that’s about it. We went into it thinking it would be a daunting process and thinking “Well, what happens after this?” George really laid it out and so we felt reassured.

The only hiccup in the whole process was on the home-buying front – it’s a tough market and we had to make a lot of offers.

We also worked with Racheal Vasquez and she was absolutely phenomenal. When I emailed her she would write right back.

I have no complaints. It was the perfect first-time home buying experience for us and we’ll definitely be back when we buy our next house."

"Ari was extremely helpful and professional when helping me purchase my home in North Portland. As a first-time home owner at 23, Ari made me feel very comfortable and confident in answering the many questions I had about buying a home.

Guardian was diligent throughout the entire process and made what I thought was a complicated transaction very simple and smooth. Their friendly and personable team made me feel at ease and allowed me to really enjoy my first home purchase. I’ll always speak highly of the work they did for me and will be the first to recommend them to future homeowners!"

“Finding a satisfactory lender may not seem like a big deal, but when you have George in your corner the difference is monumental. George and his team were tireless in ensuring that I had everything I needed to close on my perfect home. I am not sure that I can adequately explain how amazing George in a simple review, so do yourself a favor and contact him today! The support you will feel will be unlike any other lender experience!”

"Nolan and the Guardian team were absolutely phenomenal to work with. They kept me informed through each step of the process, provided me with education about the home buying and lending processes, and made sure we locked in the best rate on the best type of loan for my situation. The entire team was extremely responsive and got all my documentation together in a timely manner to allow me to close on my first home in a painless process. This is a hard-working and friendly group to work with, and years down the road when it's time to make the next move I'll certainly be going through Guardian again."

"Jason was my mortgage broker 3 years ago when I purchased my first house. I worked with him again this year to refinance my home at a lower interest rate. He is very easy to work with. He answered all my questions and was available through phone, text and email. He is quick to respond and very knowledgeable in this field."

“I highly recommend Jason Roberson to anyone looking to buy a home or even thinking about buying a home.”

– Roxanne B.

"Nolan was informative, efficient and attentive to our needs during the home buying process. He was reliable and open with communication; we received daily updates on loan documents, upcoming events, and accurate loan options and forecasts. I would recommend him highly for your mortgage needs, and will recommend him to all my friends and family who are thinking of purchasing a home. As first-time home buyers, we considered ourselves very lucky to have had someone like Nolan on our side through the process, from pre-approval to receiving keys. He even found the STaR program and helped us save money along the way!"

- Jamie B.

"Mark was able to put our loan together when no one else could find a way."

George and the Guardian Lending Team are simply amazing. I was fortunate to run into George during my first home purchase in PDX when I moved from out of state in 2012, and I would never use anyone else. He would never steer you in the wrong direction and works with you on a personal level to get the best deal possible on setting up various loan options. Over the years, George has done a fantastic job in keeping up with my life journey and helped me with purchasing two more homes over the years, the most recent being our dream home. If you need a lender for a new home or a refinance with the best, contact George and the Guardian team, you will not be disappointed.”

Lillian Y. and Carlos Wolf Dancer M. closed on their first home in 2015. Valerie Harjo helped them get financing through the Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program.

"As everyone knows buying a house is a stressful time, HOWEVER, George makes it a piece of cake! He was there every step of the way. He went above and beyond on everything. I can imagine buying a house without him!"

– Devyn W.

“As a first-time home buyer, I had about 1,000 questions. At first, I was nervous and anxious to start the process but soon after meeting and discussing details with George and Julianna from Guardian Lending, all my worries were at ease. They exceeded my expectations by assuring me of any concerns and by answering all of my questions. Julianna my loan officer, kept me informed through every step of my loan process. She attentively replied to all my emails, calls, and texts. The level of meticulous care I received from George and Julianna is unmatched and priceless. They were with me every step of the way. I especially appreciate the transparency and professionalism of this stellar team. I’m truly grateful that in the process of buying my first home, I also gained two incredible friends.”

I met Jason at a home buying seminar, he walked me through the process of preparing to buy a home. He did not pressure me or rush me. He worked at my pace."

Jason was awesome and easy to work with especially as my husband and I were first time home buyers. I would 100% recommend him to anyone in the market for a home.”

- Kovalallie

“Jason has helped us buy two homes now. We have considered buying land and building and he was very patient and knowledgeable. When we changed our minds, he helped us navigate buying our second home. He has always gone above and beyond his job and is extremely responsive. Very thankful for you, Jason!”

– J. Johnson

“I’ve worked with Nolan Walsh twice now and can’t say enough positive things about both of my experiences with him. Most recently, Nolan coordinated a recent refinance for my primary residence. He was knowledgeable, patient with all my questions, and exceeded my expectations with his follow up and clear instructions. At every point of the process, he guided me through what I needed to do or provide to keep the loan moving forward. If I were to take out a new loan or refinance again, my first call would be to Nolan. He has been an exceptional partner!”

E. Boscacci

Nolan made the whole process of buying a home stress free as possible. He was wonderful about emailing, texting or calling when needed to get information. He was overly helpful with answering all my first time home buyer questions with such clarity. He was great at breaking things down for me and going over them again when needed, as well as, getting me information I requested! I would 200% recommend using them and working with Nolan specifically was a great experience!”
