Established in 1965.
The Guardian Mortgage Company story began back in 1965 when an enterprising young man of common sense, and uncommon smarts, had a better idea. Our founder, Jack Sweet, was building homes with his partners in Grand Blanc, Michigan and had seen first-hand there was an opportunity to provide a better mortgage experience for homebuyers. Given his experience, he felt lenders were missing the mark on customer service. Jack thought he could take advantage of this opportunity by treating the customer the way he would want to be treated, offering advice on which loan options best fit their needs and walking them through each step of the loan process. So, Jack set out to create a better kind of company. Today, Guardian has offices in Michigan and Texas with over 19,000 satisfied customers. But the foundation upon which Jack Sweet built the company has remained unchanged for nearly 50 years.
