Loan Officer Jeffrey Hawks Returns to Guild As Sales Manager;

ATLANTA – Guild Mortgage, one of the largest and most experienced independent mortgage lenders in the U.S., has added Jeffrey Hawks (NMLS ID #904668) and his team to its Atlanta branch (NMLS ID #1408562).

Hawks returns to Guild as a sales manager after serving as an executive mortgage loan originator with Southeast Mortgage for just under a year. He was a loan officer with Guild from 2015 to 2019 and has close to eight years of experience serving homebuyers in metro Atlanta

“It was an easy decision to return to Guild,” Hawks said. “The company has been in business for 60 years and offers the best support in terms of operations and technology. Guild can close and service loans in any environment, which has been remarkably evident the last few months. It’s great to be back with such a stable, growing company that puts its customers and referral partners first.”

Hawks’ team includes loan officer assistant Bethany Miller (NMLS ID # 1437663), who has six years of industry experience after working for one of Atlanta’s top real estate teams at RE/MAX, and transaction coordinator Paula Heard*, who has been in the business for 15 years, primarily as a loan processor. Together, the team has more than 30 years of combined experience in the mortgage and real estate industries.

Guild’s Atlanta branch is located at 5901 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Suite C100 in the Palisades Office Park. It’s led by area manager Tammy Frith (NMLS ID # 190264) and branch manager Sean Frith (NMLS ID #1090092).

“We’re pleased to welcome the Jeffrey Hawks team back to Guild,” Tammy Frith said. “Jeffrey is a rising star in our business, with impressive production levels in each of his first four years with the company. More importantly, he understands how to connect with and establish trust with his customers, and that’s very important to us. We expect big things from this group as Guild continues to grow in the booming Atlanta market.”
