Whether you are in the market for a new home or want to refinance your existing mortgage, Guardian Bank has a mortgage loan program to meet your needs.
Mortgage Account Specialist
A home purchase is often one's largest and most important asset. Home is a place of refuge. Home is a place for family. Home is a place of memories. As the real estate collapse and subsequent economic downturn demonstrate, it is very important that careful consideration is given to the type of mortgage you obtain. Guardian Bank never sacrificed its principles to chase subprime profits. We have never maintained a solely commission based staff paid only on volume. Guardian Bank has always strived to provide its customers the mortgages that they need and can afford. Cheryl Arnold, our mortgage specialist, has a reputation for providing friendly, personal, and thoughtful service.

Conventional Fixed Rate Loan
Conventional fixed rate mortgage loans offer the best rate and term combinations available and can be used to purchase or refinance a home. Credit standards and down payment requirements are generally higher for conventional mortgage loans.
FHA Mortgage Loan
Government backed FHA loans offer lower down payment options than conventional financing, relaxed qualifying guidelines and fixed rates with a variety of repayment terms for qualified applicants.
