Guild Mortgage Launches Guild-to-Go Mobile App to Enhance Collaboration with Real Estate Community

New Tool Allows Direct Connection with Guild Loan Officers; Agents
Can Refer Clients and Track Status of Loans from Any Mobile Device

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/OwnWhatMatters?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#OwnWhatMatterslt;/agt;–Guild
Mortgage
, one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the
U.S., has launched Guild-to-Go, a mobile application designed to offer
real estate agents more transparency and efficiency throughout the loan
process and empower them to better serve homebuyers.

With Guild-to-Go, the company’s real estate partners can 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 refer their clients to Guild to
start the loan application and pre-approval process with a few simple
clicks.

Guild-to-Go generates customized, on-demand pre-approval letters that
can be shared instantly 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.”

Guild-to-Go is integrated with Guild
360
, the company’s proprietary sales, marketing and customer
relationship management platform powered by Salesforce. When an agent
refers a client to Guild through the app, it automatically appears in
Guild 360 and the loan officer is notified. Loan officers receive tasks
on their dashboard and notifications from agents when a pre-approval
letter is generated or needs to be updated.

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,” he
said. “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 part of Guild Mortgage’s broader suite of digital and
e-services. Last year, the company announced a secure,
hybrid eClose solution
, which gives customers the option to review
and sign loan documents electronically. Guild also offers MyMortgage,
a digital mortgage portal that allows customers to upload documents and
manage their checklists from any mobile device. MyMortgage uses Day 1
Certainty from Fannie Mae for instant verification of income, assets and
employment.

Guild-to-Go is available for download on the App Store and Google Play.
