“I would highly recommend John Bruce and Guild Mortgage, especially if you're a first-time home buyer. He walked us through every step, stopping to explain different options' pros and cons. Very quick response at every opportunity, including the rest of the team at Guild Mortgage. 5 stars !!!!”Darren Martin
“John and his team helped my husband and I buy our first home in the Seattle area. They were efficient in getting us pre-approved for our loan and gave us a competitive quote on a loan right away. This team is full of honest, smart, and kind people who were informative and helpful through the process. It is hard to put into words how content we are that we decided to go with John Bruce at Guild rather than a local lender. We highly recommend this team!”Kamille R.
“John was really down to earth and explained the process to us so we could understand each step. We never felt misinformed or left in the dark. We will definitely refer our friends and family to John! Thank you John for all your hard work and patience.”Monique Johnson
“Very experienced and Professional”Ted Calouri
“John Bruce is the best there is. As a single, first time home buyer, I always felt supported and taken care of throughout the loan process. He and Will Frazier took so much of the stress out of buying a home, and always went above and beyond to ensure I was getting what I wanted and needed. Beyond their exceptional service, they were knowledgeable about first time home buyer programs that helped me get the most out of my purchase. I am a customer for life and will be sending many people to them in the future!”Alyssa Wood
“Finding time to get things done is difficult for most of us and this is why I'd choose to use John Bruce as again. He has outstanding professionalism, excellent communication skill, dose what he says he'll do, and in my experience went above and beyond to ensure my home closed on the date planned. I trust John to get things done and have no intention of experimenting with another loan officer when I already found perfection.”Maria Aplington
“John is a down-to-earth guy. Some one like me, a blue collar worker, who can put their trust in to be taken care of and get the job done. John got-r-did! Yes I did become frustrated with all the necessary paperwork and the fluctuation of interest rates before closing but that is part of the process and the market. Thanks John.”Sam Rachal III
“John Bruce is incredibly knowledgeable and communicative, and was excited to make my home buying processes as easy as possible.”Scott Nikiel
