“Nolan was incredible to work with. He made the entire process stress free. He was great at communicating information and answering any questions we had through text, email and phone calls too. We appreciated the user friendly break down of every thing and going over them as many times as needed for clarity. Nolan truly goes above and beyond for his clients and we 100% recommend working with him and we plan to work with him again in the future!“

“Guardian Lending is a great choice to make for your lending needs. They helped me secure the funding necessary for a home purchase I made in 2021 when interest rates were rock bottom and competition was fierce. They were available for many a last-minute phone call and were quick to send all required documentation quickly and efficiently and as needed. I'm not sure I would have secured the home I am in now without their close attention to timeliness and detail. THANK YOU, GUARDIAN LENDING!!!”
– Erik M.
“George treated us like family throughout our home buying process. He was warm, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and available at any time to answer questions. We only had 20 days from offer acceptance until close, and George (and Rachael on his team!) were on the ball to make sure everything got done in time. Buying a home can be stressful, but George's guidance made the lending process transparent and easy. We are happy customers!”

"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!

I highly recommend Greg and had a 10/10 experience with him."

"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."
- Mallory G.
"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!"
- Max O.

“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!”
– Chris A.

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."

It was a pleasure working with him and strongly would recommend him to anyone whether it be buying your first home or buying a new home."

We are now settled into our house and extremely happy with our position; all thanks to their hard work and having a network of lenders to tap.”

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!"

“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.”

“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.”

“We have used George twice now and each time he has made the whole process quick and painless. He never seemed bothered no matter how many questions or emails we sent him.

He is the only lender we will use and we recommend him to anyone buying or re-financing.”
– Ange M.

But George and his team made everything so smooth and easy. Great communication throughout the process and everything closed in a timely manner.”
– Erin L.
“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!”
“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!”
