Regional Vice President, CA and HI

Welcome to the California and Hawaii region of Guild Mortgage. As the home base of what is now one of the largest national mortgage lenders, we’ve seen a lot of growth in the 60+ years since we opened our first branch in San Diego. We now have over 70 branches in the California and Hawaii region alone, with about 300 originators bringing in $5.4 billion in production. That’s a lot of past clients and referral businesses. Bottom line is that we know this region. Get to know us.

What we're all about

After 60 years in business, a company learns how to attract and keep top talent. Our leadership has the depth of experience to weather unpredictable market conditions and will share their knowledge to the individual employee level which allows the entire organization to thrive in good times and less favorable ones. Sales teams at Guild know that leadership has their back because they feel that support every day.

It starts with a conversation. Let us know what you’re looking for in your career, and we can match you with the branch and management style that works for you. You can’t go wrong. You can choose a top-producing branch to learn from the best or forge out on your own by opening a new branch. There’s still a lot of opportunity for Guild to explore new markets.

What you get with Guild

We want our loan officers to succeed here, providing coaching for all career stages. Our coaching program is taught by Guild top producers, using the same tools and facing the same challenges you do.
