Debbie Aguirre-Shank Joins National Independent Lender in its Nampa Branch
Nampa, Idaho – Guild Mortgage (NYSE: GHLD), a rapidly growing mortgage lending company originating and servicing residential loans since 1960, has added senior loan officer Debbie Aguirre-Shank (NMLS ID #1554942) to its Nampa branch (NMLS ID #1428384).
Aguirre-Shank has close to five years of mortgage lending experience and joins Guild from Gold Financial Services. The longtime Nampa resident and Boise State University graduate prides herself in helping members of the community improve their financial outlook through the benefits of homeownership.
“I made the decision to move to Guild because I will be able to better serve my customers long term,” Aguirre-Shank said. “Guild offers in-house processing, underwriting, and funding, and unlike many other lenders, has its own servicing department. This makes for a smoother process when closing loans and allows us to maintain the relationship and serve the borrower throughout the life of their loan. I’m pleased to be joining such a reputable and growing company.”
Guild’s Nampa branch is located at 5660 E Franklin Rd, Suite 201 and led by branch manager Amy Lynn Glover (NMLS ID #21321), who has more than 15 years of mortgage lending, processing, title, and escrow experience. The Guild team offers hundreds of loan programs to serve virtually every customer, including first-time homebuyers, military families and rural residents. Additionally, Guild offers several state, county and city housing programs for those in need of down payment assistance.
“Southwestern Idaho is one of the hottest and most competitive housing markets in the country, so I want people on my team who have a history of going above and beyond for their customers,” Glover said. “Debbie exemplifies a commitment to service through every step of the mortgage process. She’s well respected in the community, and will be a great addition to our growing team.”
