National mortgage lender Guild Mortgage recently launched a mobile app designed to offer real estate agents more transparency and efficiency throughout the loan process.
Guild Mortgage’s Guild-to-Go app allows real estate partners to connect directly with their preferred Guild loan officer from any mobile device, or select a loan officer by location through the app’s built-in map feature. Once registered, agents can start loan application and pre-approval process with a few clicks.
Guild-to-Go generates customized pre-approval letters that can be shared with clients, eliminating back and forth in the pre-approval process and allowing agents to submit offers faster for their buyers. Agents also can track the status of their customers’ files throughout the loan process with real-time updates and status notifications from application to close.
“We’re always looking for innovative ways to provide value to our strategic partners,” said Mary Ann McGarry, president and CEO of Guild Mortgage. “Guild-to-Go represents the next phase of a more personalized loan experience, while allowing our loan officers to work more efficiently and collaboratively with the real estate community. We’re confident this platform will provide a memorable experience for our real estate agents and help them provide better service to their customers directly from the field.”
Gabe Minton, executive vice president and chief information officer, said Guild’s technology, sales and development teams worked to create a mobile app that would be a competitive differentiator in the industry.
“The mortgage industry is continuing to explore what digital means in the lending process and how new tools can increase productivity,” said Gabe Minton, executive vice president and chief information officer at Guild-to-Go. “Guild-to-Go has many valuable features, such as the ability to request pre-approval letters directly from the app, that we believe will be significant in offering a more efficient lending process for our real estate partners. If we can make their lives a little easier, then we have succeeded.”
Guild-to-Go is available for download on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
