A bright spot in an otherwise gloomy real estate finance landscape is 46-year-old Guardian Mortgage, a boutique local lender which said today that it was named as the best Mortgage Lender in Grand Blanc for 2011 by the Grand Blanc View’s readers.

This is the fifth year the list was compiled by the Grand Blanc View and a first-time win for Guardian Mortgage. Nominations came from thousands of readers who also participated in the voting process. Guardian Mortgage beat out twelve other mortgage companies with offices in the area.

“Our seasoned team was nominated for innovative thinking and helping their customers achieve their short and long-term financial goals,” said Mrs. Marcia Phillips, CEO, Guardian Mortgage. “Our customers’ enthusiastic referrals to friends and family are a testament to the years of outstanding service received from our loan officers and support staff. Congratulations to Pam Denne, Brian Isaacson, Cynthia Lawrence, John Mack, Jason Stiehl and Kathy Zengerle for this recognition by our customers!

In addition we service our own loans which means we stay close to our customers throughout the lifetime of their mortgages.”
