Mortgage lender Guild Mortgage announced it has launched a new tool to enhance collaboration between real estate professionals and the company’s loan officers.
The Guild-to-Go Mobile App enables real estate agents to refer clients to the company’s LOs and check the status of loans via any mobile device.
The company explained in a press release that its new mobile application is designed to offer real estate agents increased transparency and efficiency during the loan process and empowers them to better serve homebuyers.

“We’re always looking for innovative ways to provide value to our strategic partners,” said Mary Ann McGarry, president and CEO of Guild Mortgage. “Guild-to-Go represents the next phase of a more personalized loan experience, while allowing our loan officers to work more efficiently and collaboratively with the real estate community. We’re confident this platform will provide a memorable experience for our real estate agents and help them provide better service to their customers directly from the field.”
