  • We had a great experience with June Richardson at GuardHill. We started the process with June to understand what we could afford, and she was our guide throughout. She was infinitely reachable and helpful. The whole GuardHill team was professional and responsive. I've already recommended them to friends.

  • Happy Clients of Maryla Ciechanowicz I can’t tell you how happy we were working with her, she was on top of things from start to finish. She’s very good at her job and we enjoyed a stress-free closing because of her! Will definitely be recommending her brokerage services to everyone.

  • Professional, knowledgeable, responsive and easy to work with! Jimmy is probably one of the easiest person to work with and learn from when you're dealing with loans and mortgages. He's extremely knowledgeable and informative every time you have a question for him. Communication with him is seamless and he's very responsive and reliable. Based on your credit history and personal profile, he will go out of his way to try and get you the best rate possible. Out of the entire process of buying a home, working and dealing with Jimmy was probably the easiest part of the process, so I highly recommend using him for any future loan processes. Thanks again Jimmy for your help.

  • Thank you to GuardHill / Lee Hamway and his team Hi Alan, I just recently closed on a rate & term refinance with GuardHill and just wanted to send you a quick note to say how impressed I was with the overall process.   Lee Hamway, my main contact, and his associate Elie were outstanding.   The process was transparent and straightforward, and the communication / responsiveness of both Lee and Elie was not only impressive but at many times quite reassuring. As you may realize, Alan, from the consumer side, the mortgage lending process can be a bit daunting.   Although refinancing a mortgage may seem like a simple process, once you get out into the market you realize it is hardly so.   For example, my longstanding financial advisor suggested that I use his mortgage broker.    A friend at one of the major banks suggested that I move some of my investment assets over to the bank to take advantage of “relationship pricing.”   While having these parallel discussions, it became clear to me how much variability can actually be involved in a simple “rate and term” refinance -- both in terms of knowledge / professionalism as well as in my sense of who was thinking about “which program was best for me” vs. “which program would be best for the lender.” Needless-to-say, that was not my experience with Lee or GuardHill.   Lee takes a real “customer first” type approach and that was apparent through our initial discussions.  I felt like Lee was not trying to “sell me on a product” -- rather, he was trying to help me think through my options.   And I really appreciated that.   And in terms of execution -- well, Elie was fantastic.   He is probably one of the unsung heroes at GuardHill.  He was meticulous about keeping track of everything, keeping me informed (both day and night) and brought things to a successful conclusion. We closed last Friday.   Our loan should fund this Wednesday -- hopefully without a glitch.   Bottom line -- working with GuardHill and with Lee / Elie was a top-tier experience and I look forward to working with this team again and recommending to others. All the best, Alan.   And thanks to you for running such a 1st rate organization. David B

  • “For the last twenty or twenty-five years, I have been telling my clients that Michael Daversa was the ‘go to person’ if you are looking for a mortgage banker who will deliver what he promises, when promised and on the best terms available.  I did so because I was confident that as the attorney I would be able to meet deadlines and have a happy client at the closing. Plus, I knew that Michael would always keep me informed on the progress of the application process. He is one of the best!!”

  • I found Cindy Saxman to be extremely knowledgeable and responsive in dealing with my mortgage needs. She was conversant in all aspects of my financing options and on top of the mortgage process form end-to-end. It was a total pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a mortgage.

    LL Client
  • Loved working with Suzanne and Betsy. They made our lives so much easier!

    GC Client
  • It was a great experience working with Maryla Ciechanowicz as our mortgage broker. From our first phone conversation it was clear that Maryla is very professional, knowledgeable, personable and genuinely cares about her clients. My case wasn't easy or simple, but our almost two-month collaboration definitively proved that my first impression of Maryla was correct and that it was a right decision to enlist her services. She was by my side every step of the way and when the application process hit a couple of bumps Marylya was very accommodating and reassuring. Not once did Marylya ignore my phone calls or neglected to answer my emails, she kept me appraised of the situation continuously so I knew exactly where we stood at every stage of the process. She never hesitated to go an extra mile to get things done and I'm convinced, she is absolutely the best in this industry!

    ZP Client

    GT Client
  • Excellent mortgage service. Michael is true professional. I took his advise and service in Feb - May 2017. He worked as a team to ensure the conditions required for mortgage offer are fairly met, maintained transparency throughout the process, had my best interest in mind and delivered a competitive mortgage offer. His team is great too, ensuring the documentation required for mortgage offer is complete. My case was slightly bespoke and involved net worth/assets distributed across multiple countries. Michael and team were patient and factored in all the details to ensure the mortgage amount captures the true net worth and ability to pay.

Seems like GuardHill has top notch service and extremely creative work force. Keep doing what you are doing. You make it easy, seamless and transparent.

Other banks and financial services companies can learn a thing or two from you guys. Simply awesome!!!

  • Conducting Business with GuardHill Financial showed me how a business can go from solely communicating over a phone or email, to a company that takes on the relationships with their clients to a completely different level.

In regards to creating the best possible loan offer for me, GuardHill Financial was able ensure the most competitive rates with the best service in the business. I was very happy that I chose GuardHill Financial to help me with my mortgage.

    Client JA
  • Dear Mr. Rosenbaum, I wanted to send a quick note to say what a pleasure it was working with Amber Daz to secure a mortgage through GuardHill Financial Corp. After discussing the loan process with two banks and three mortgage brokers, I decided without hesitation to go with Amber Daz. Her demeanor is immediately friendly and easy going but it’s also clear from the gate that she knows her stuff.  Both she and Blakely have been professional, thorough, courteous and quick to respond throughout the process. The experience was the best of what one can hope for. I’m a licensed real estate agent with Douglas Elliman. I look forward to referring both clients and friends to Amber and therefore to GuardHill Financial.

    FS Client, NY
  • If anyone is looking to get a mortgage or refinance - I can highly recommend Rochelle Crespi of GuardHill Financial. I worked with her to secure a mortgage on my pied-a-terre purchase in NYC and she fought tooth and nail to make sure that I got a mortgage and that it was at a fair market rate. She is extremely diligent and takes care to lead you in every step of the way.  If I were to re-finance or to purchase another property in NYC or in the USA, I would seek her services again!!!! In fact, I was first introduced to her when I tried to buy a property on a short sale (which fell through) a few years ago.  I do not work for nor was I asked by GuardHill or Rochelle to provide this recommendation- I am doing it because I feel that she is really good and I am super happy with my mortgage.

    HS Client, NY
  • Wanted to write a quick note praising the efforts of Cindy Saxman Margulies. From the beginning of what has been a very impressive process Cindy was by my side helping to guide me, explain details and (most importantly) secure the best rate possible.  In addition, Cindy was there throughout the entire close and put in considerable effort (and influence) to help expedite matters when I had pressing business commitments later in the day. I cannot say enough good things about her and will absolutely recommend her (and GuardHill) to everyone I know in the market. I am truly pleased with the end results.

    SR Client, NY
  • It is a pleasure to write this testimonial on behalf of Jordan Roth and GuardHill Financial Corp. I cannot recommend Jordan and the entire team at GuardHill enough. From the first time I spoke with Jordan about my needs, he was extremely understanding and helpful. He explained all the options available and walked me through the entire process. After having suffered a major disaster at the hands of one of the large national banks, it was a breath of fresh air dealing with GuardHill and Jordan in particular. The loan process was absolutely painless and our application was processed and approved in a short time. Jordan was very patient with me and was always available by phone or email, even late in the evening and on weekends, which is such a blessing. I wish everyone else in the industry cared so much for their clients. GuardHill is highly recommended. I am one very satisfied customer.

    PB Client, NY
  • D'Laine Mindreau has extraordinary focus in getting things done from start to finish. She was recommended by a lawyer I have known for over 20 years and I've always trusted him. He is never wrong. As such, he was right about D'Laine Mindreau. If you have the pleasure of working with her, do not pass it up. Her patience in the face of difficulty is unparalleled. Committed and professional, I would highly recommend her again and again. Another thanks to my Attorney Peter Thomas for putting me in touch with a person who has such an incredible work ethic.

    AV Client, NY
  • My wife and I have worked with Richard Barenblatt on 3 transactions, ranging from the routine to quite complex. Along the way, we've seen first-hand that he is honest, bright, resourceful and responsible. As a lawyer who specializes in housing law and civil rights and as a law professor who teaches about law practice, I know that the number one complaint about service industry professionals is the lack of responsiveness. Richard excels in this (and so many other areas). He understands that these transactions are important and will guide you through the process with great skill and care. We recommend him highly and without reservation.

    CA Client, NY
  • We first had the good fortune to work with Keith about 10 years ago, when he stepped in last minute to save us when a badly put together mortgage fell through as we were buying our Manhattan apt. Since then we have purchased three more homes using his services and done three refinances. Keith is professional, quick and very helpful. He has consistently got us the best rates, given us the best advice on what type of mortgage would best suit us at different times with different purchases, plus he has a great sense of humor - we can't recommend him highly enough!

    LG Client, NY
  • Steven Weiss was so helpful all through the process.

    LH Client
  • I wanted to just thank everyone at GuardHill for helping my family through this stressful process. GuardHill (Amber,and the whole team), have been a true Godsend. You guys have made this process so much easier and painless…my wife yesterday told me that this loan process was easy; we should do it again in the future with GuardHill. (The saga continues for a bigger house!) You guys are hands down the best.

    MLD Client
  • I pushed hard and part of my experience was stressful but the team at Guardhill did a fantastic job. Thanks a ton to Chelsea and Stephen for pulling through!

    BM Client
  • My wife and I recently closed our loan with the help of Mr. Rybak and his team for a combination of two units. What could have potentially been an extremely stressful and difficult process was absolutely nothing but seamless, to the point that my wife commented that she thought the process of getting a mortgage was “easy.” I know from firsthand experience that this is not always an easy process, and I attribute our experience to Mr. Rybak’s responsiveness and attention to our file, as his work was truly beyond repute.

    JH, Esq. Client
  • Kevin is The Mortgage Whisperer.  He has helped us with two different mortgages and each time he took what was a complicated situation and found solutions that allowed us to move forward with owning our apartment.  He is transparent, very responsive, direct, and solution oriented.  At no point did I feel he was selling me something - instead I felt like he had my best interests at heart and worked hard to find the right mortgage for our situation.  I would use Kevin again in a second and recommend him often to friends.

    GP Client, NY
  • Valerie Feder and her team at GuardHill Financial Corp. are simply the best in the business. Having owned multiple homes I would not think of trusting my mortgage needs to anyone else. Expert knowledge, expert advice and aggressive pursuit of the best mortgage rates out there are what you can expect and will ultimately receive.

    Client NY
  • We have nothing but great things to say about Michael and the team at GuardHill Financial Corp.  They not only got us a fantastic mortgage rate, but were a joy through every part of the process.  They worked quickly and efficiently, allowing us to get from offer to closing in roughly 2 months’ time.  They were quick to answer our questions, worked well with our lawyers and the seller, and in the end got us a mortgage that allowed us to buy an apartment we loved in a fiscally responsible manner.  I would highly recommend working with them on any needs you might have.

    SA Client, NY
  • Rochelle Crespi is a gem. She was honest, straightforward, and patient with us from the very beginning. Thanks, Rochelle.

  • I want to mention some really great things about Guardhill Financial Corp. Being in mortgage originations for 30 years the back office in any organization plays a key role to a loan originator’s success.  The tight knit environment having an array of very talented & professional personnel ranging from loan opening stage 1 to the final stage of closing a loan is superb. Having many mortgage programs to work with along with being able to both bank & broker a loan to get the best for the client is certainly available at Guardhill which attributes to the entire picture as one big success. Having a great team under one roof surely attributes to this huge success.

  • It is refreshing to be part of an organization who prides themselves on creating the proper environment for a loan officer to be successful as well as wanting them to succeed. GuardHilll Financial Corp. has strategically positioned team members in positions that will assist in the structuring, processing, underwriting and funding of a transaction as efficiently as possible. The goal of the organization is to not say “no” to a loan but how the file can be structured and reviewed to make the loan successful. And, suggest the proper investor(s) who will accept the loan. This is incredible refreshing in our industry.

  • From my first meeting with Alan Rosenbaum at GuardHill I knew this was the right career move. There is no other company that has the vision, resources or support staff to compete with GH on any level. GH provides me a platform to work independently & creatively but within a team environment. Everyone here is always so friendly and helpful. I could not ask for a better company to a part of.

  • I have been working in GuardHill for 3 years. GuardHill is an excellent place to work and to succeed. The company has a positive work atmosphere, supportive managers and great coworkers. I started with no experience in this industry, and 3 years later I have learned about the secondary market, mortgage processing, social media, marketing, real estate & sales. The entrepreneurial environment allows you to implement your ideas and achieve your career goals. The CEO of Guardhill is a great leader who is charming & with a fun personality. He cares & mentors each individual employee in the company. GuardHill puts all employees in a position to excel. If you're hardworking and willing to learn, there are great opportunities for career advancement. Turnover is very low here. Many employees have been with Guardhill for 5-15 years. I am very happy to be a part of the Guardhill family.

  • As an employee who has worked in multiple departments at GuardHill over the past 5 years, I have had the pleasure to witness a company not only grow, but thrive in a very challenging marketplace. Despite new government regulations and a volatile interest rate environment, GuardHill has always been a step ahead to ensure its clients are always taken care of. Our service is first class and our ability to navigate the toughest of situations is what makes GuardHill who we are. This company has become a family to me and I know I have colleagues, from management to fellow loan officers, who I can always count on.

  • One of the things I love about Guardhill Financial is our unlimited access to diverse products. When I am working with a client, I always have the confidence that if anyone in the mortgage industry is going to have the product and rate they want it’s going to be Guardhill.

  • It has been a pleasure working with Guardhill over the past 4+ years.  After working as a traditional bank loan consultant for over 10 years, the transition to the banker/broker model that Guardhill employs was a welcome relief.  It was very important to me to have more than just one set of programs to offer to my clients, which is why now having literally dozens of banks and investors to choose from means no more missed opportunities.  I am now able to offer the most competitive rates and programs on all of my deals, including the tough out-of-the-box deals that I used to leave behind.

  • For me, GHF is the quintessential Mortgage Lender in the TRISTATE region today. We are leaders in offering an extensive array of products at competitive rates with the added advantage of in house underwriting.  We have the ability to navigate the market with ease and provide the support and experience our clients need. From a FHA first time home buyer to a seasoned real estate investor and everything else in between,  GuardHill has everything needed in the marketplace to be competitive which leads to very happy clients and referral sources.

  • I was drawn to Guardhill because of its reputation in the industry. Working here now, I see that is due to solid leadership and a wonderful team that I am proud and honored to work alongside every day. The support I receive is great and I look forward to a long and successful tenure with the company.

  • GuardHill is by far the leader in mortgage banking.  I am happy to say I am entering my 7th year at the firm.  I have been in this business for close to 15 years and Guardhill far surpasses the competition when it comes to products, service and support.  I can easily say I would not have been able to provide and service my clients mortgage needs without the products and professional support staff that we have at Guardhill.  I tell every client that we are simply the best at placing and securing mortgage financing and that additionally they will receive personalized service that will far surpass anything they would receive from any commercial or mortgage bank out there.  And I am happy to say I am able to deliver every time.

  • “Working at Guardhill has been more than just a great place to jumpstart my career. The family-style atmosphere has truly allowed me to view my other coworkers as friends instead of just fellow employees. From the CEO, all the way down to the entry level employees, everybody works as a cohesive team to instill efficiency. The tools to succeed are all there.”

  • I have been a loan officer at GuardHill Financial since 1995, so going on 20 years now.  The reason I am still here is quite my opinion there is no better place to be.   GuardHill's top-notch family (yes we think of ourselves as a rather large, diverse family)  of caring and devoted employees who truly want to help their clients and one another is unparalleled in the mortgage industry.  We have been provided with the best platform for residential mortgage lending in the industry, with top-notch support that is always improving, and an owner who has continually fostered a work culture that makes GuardHill an enjoyable place to create and establish  a successful career. There is a reason why many of us have been here for more than a decade...and that is rare in our industry. I encourage anyone looking to find a permanent place for themselves to look carefully and seriously at GuardHill Financial.

  • GuardHill Financial Corp. is a nationally recognized leading mortgage broker and banking company committed to its client’s needs.  Its employees, which are of a diverse background and its strength, have a vast knowledge of mortgage standards and requirements, and perform quality work.  The company continuously strives to increase its resources and team in order to give its customers the best products and service.  Repeat cliental and referrals are the GuardHill Financial Corp’s pride.

  • It has been a pleasure working for GuardHill Financial Corp. for the last 7 years.  Since I have worked here, I have been able to develop business relationships and establish mortgage banking relationships with clients that I could never have done elsewhere.  In addition to the products that I have available to me, our processing, underwriting and closing department staff go above and beyond to get our files approved and closed in an expedient manner.  With the assistance of Suzanne Sullivan, our Process Manager, I have been able to have my client’s loans processed more efficiently. Because of her diligence and work ethic, it has allowed me to work more effectively to bring in more business.

  • I just wanted to write a quick note about how pleased I have been with Guardhill. I have been with a few Mortgage Companies and Menu of products available at GH far surpass all the other companies I have worked for, Especially  Jumbo Products. The Best thing about GH is the Management Team and Processing Staff. Whenever a problem arises I know if I call Gino or Elyse they will help me find the solution to get things done.  Finally, what is truly unique about GH is, it is a Big Mortgage Company but Alan’s door is open or you can call him anytime. He is always willing to offer support and help you grow your business.

  • GuardHill Financial has established deep and long-standing relationships with dozens of lenders in the industry.   For over a decade, I’ve worked to ensure that my clients get access to the right lender based on their financial profile.  Add in the operations staff and management, the process becomes efficiently streamlined for clients. - ST, Loan Officer
