  • Jason Brumet - Client

    Michael and his team of financial experts couldn’t have treated my wife and I any better.

    I have served in the U.S. Army for more than 22 years and never bought a home due to consecutive overseas assignments. Finally, the wife and I decided to purchase our new home after retirement. I spoke with Michael on multiple occasions and he gave me the warm and fuzzy, however, household 6 (The WIFE, aka the Boss) didn’t feel so comfortable with everything. Michael went out of his way to make additional phone calls to ensure my wife understood every nook and cranny of the financial packet, to include the ESCROW piece. After the wife understood she was in good hands, Michael handed us off to Nathan Scharnett. He looked to be twelve (No Offense Nathan), but the young financial Manager was on it. He answered every question without hesitation, and the ones he didn't have up-front, he researched and got back to us. As the wife and I grew nearer to closing, I spoke to Nathan daily. He wanted to ensure I knew everything I needed to, too ensure a successful hand-off with Escrow.

    I will use the Fornerette team for all my home buying in the future. I would definitely recommend the TEAM to anyone that needs a helping hand.

    Amazing people and company!

    We used a VA loan and thought we could only use a certain company, but our realtors recommended Guild to us. Best decision we've ever made! They're easy to contact, wonderful to talk to, and extremely helpful in the whole home-buying process. The team at Guild made the experience easy to understand and we were actually able to enjoy buying our first home! Highly recommended!

  • Angie A - Client

    From our first phone call with Michael Fornerette, my husband and I were sure he was the guy we wanted on our team. We had actually started the application process with another company, but Michael was so good at explaining our mortgage options, and so knowledgeable right out of the gate, that we didn't give the other company another though after speaking with Michael. Michael, and everyone else on Team Fornerette at Guild Mortgage knew how the VA Home Loan process would go, and they helped us every step of the way. The whole thing felt effortless, painless, and streamlined (as much as a home loan application process can be, anyway!)

    After originally trying to go with a "top online mortgage lender", which fell through due to incompetence, I was recommended Guild via my Realtor, who had previous experiences with them. Overall, I couldn't be happier with Guild, Michael Fornerette and his entire team who have been exemplary in their service and a pleasure to work with, especially in what can be a tedious and stressful process.

    Mellisa Hays on The Fornerette Team was awesome and her follow through was second to none.

    Mellisa was wonderful to deal with! She was awesome and her follow through was second to none. I would highly recommend her as you are working through your loan processing. Without her, it would have been next to impossible!!

    This team was Great! I told them I did not know what I was doing and that I would need them to hold my hand through out this process and they were there for me from beginning to end! They made sure I understood the process without talking down to me or making me feel like I was asking too many questions. I felt like there were no surprises. They were available at ANY time I needed to talk to them. And now we are in our forever home! I am already referring them to people I know.

  • Jacob Smith - Client

    I was really impressed with Michael’s teams customer service. They worked with me to close on time. They have sent several updates and letters with good wishes and appreciation, it’s a small but classy touch. They calmly explained things when I would get concerned (and I admit confused at times). I definitely recommend Michael and his team. They delivered exactly what they promised and some.

  • Zillow User9529893 - Client

    This is the second house we purchased; the first time we purchased a home, the loan process was painful and stressful, and I was dreading selling our home and having to do the process all over again. The Fornerette team made this go-around quick and seamless. They were incredibly communicative, helpful, and answered all of my questions (and I ask a ton of questions). They made sure throughout the entire process that we were comfortable with our monthly payment, and gave me numerous loan and program options to look into. I feel like I learned a ton through this home-buying process, and felt informed throughout the entire thing.
