Guild Mortgage has expanded in the Midwest with the opening of two offices in Wisconsin. The company has opened a branch in Madison and a satellite office in Baraboo. The offices are Guild Mortgage’s first locations in the state.
The Madison branch is led by branch managers Dave Grauwels and Ryan Smith. The Madison team also includes loan officer Joseph Long. Sales manager Josey Cabai will work out of the Baraboo satellite office.
The team joins Guild Mortgage after more than 10 years with Waterstone Mortgage Corporation.
“For many people, financing a home is the largest financial decision they will ever make, and the process can be quite intimidating,” Smith said. “Having served homebuyers in Dane County (Wis.) for more than 20 years, we know that our customers want a convenient, smooth process, but also a personal touch, where we take the time to review all of their loan options based on their individual situation.”
“Madison is home to Wisconsin’s largest public university, world-renowned hospitals, several large corporations and a growing tech sector that contribute to a strong housing market,” Grauwels said. “We are honored to serve the homebuyers of this great community, and look forward to sharing Guild’s experience and expertise in assisting borrowers with all types of home loans for more than 50 years.”
