Fast-Growing Guild Mortgage Expands Presence with New Branch in Rancho Cucamonga

Sales manager Mario Sandoval leads branch;
Local team has more than 45 years of experience in mortgage lending

Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – Guild Mortgage, one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the U.S., has expanded its presence in San Bernardo County with a new branch in Rancho Cucamonga.

Sales manager Mario Sandoval (NMLS# 693902), who has more than 15 years of experience in the mortgage, banking and finance industry, has been selected as branch manager. He joined Guild in 2016 from Lincoln Mutual Home Mortgage and specializes in advising customers on a number of loan options, including conventional, FHA, VA, reverse and jumbo.

“We’ve seen a steady increase in the number of families moving to Rancho Cucamonga due to inventory and affordability issues in other areas of Southern California and beyond,” Sandoval said. “Our city is benefitting from having fine schools and parks in existing neighborhoods. With significant new residential construction underway, our community will continue to attract new residents. We thought the timing was right to open the new office to meet increased demand, with an array of loan options to help people achieve their dreams of homeownership.”

Sandoval’s team includes loan officers Emmett Colón (NMLS# 1370263), Nick Juarez (NMLS# 1463500) and Angel Larios (NMLS# 1512765), who have more than 30 years of combined experience in the mortgage industry.

The branch (NMLS# 1502234), is located at 9045 Haven Ave., Suite #101 in Rancho Cucamonga.

Guild Mortgage is headquartered in San Diego and has more than 4,000 employees with more than 341 offices in 29 states. The company has 60 branches and satellite offices in California, with nine locations throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.

Guild achieved records in purchase loan and servicing volumes in 2017, while reaching near-record overall loan volume of $15.94 billion for the year. Since 2010 (when loan volume was $4.1 billion), Guild has grown almost four-fold, expanding from its base in the West to the Southwest, Southeast, South and Midwest.

The growth rate has been among the highest in the industry. Guild is consistently recognized for the positive impact in the communities it serves because of its commitment to customer service and workplace culture.
