White Plains, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Guaranteed's rapid growth resulted in the company's inclusion in the Inc.500 list of fastest growing U.S. firms a few years ago. Guaranteed has expanded its regional footprint into a growing national presence with branches coast-to-coast. Guaranteed enjoys an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and offers a diverse portfolio of residential mortgage products including FHA, VA, USDA, conventional and reverse loans.
"When Guaranteed opened its doors more than 20 years ago, we focused initially on the New York-New Jersey markets, helping home buyers achieve their dreams of home ownership," said Mr. Lemeshev. "Because we're so well-known in these areas, we are continuing to open new offices to better serve our clients."
The new Ridgewood, New Jersey office opened in December, under the leadership of Branch Manager Mohammad "Mo" Illyas. A former equity trader, Mr. Illyas entered the mortgage industry 13 years ago as a loan originator. He cited two reasons for his success: the wide variety of loans he is able to offer through Guaranteed and his team's careful attention to detail in working with each client to find the best-priced loan.
New Reston, Virginia branch manager Stephen Carlozzi spent 20 years on Wall Street before joining the mortgage lending industry nine years ago. He has built a local reputation for getting difficult loans closed: "In a nutshell, I make people happy by matching them with a home loan that works with their budget - now and in the future," he explained.
"Both mortgage rates and housing prices are still relatively low. Plus, new mortgage regulatory changes are threatening to tighten lending restrictions. So many home buyers, formerly on the fence as to whether to apply for a loan or wait, are now moving forward," said Regional Manager Jamey Citrone. "You've heard it before, and it's still true: now is the time to buy or refinance a home."
