June 27th, 2017
Back in 2002, Guidance Residential first opened its doors after our extensive development of the nation’s premiere Islamic home financing program. We began operation in just three states. Today, as we celebrate Guidance Residential’s 15th Anniversary, we are very proud to announce our being licensed in our 27th state as of July 2017 (technically, it’s a district): Washington, D.C.
We’ve been licensed to do business in Virginia and Maryland for many years now. Today, we’re thrilled to complete the “D” in “DMV” by bringing the #1 U.S. Islamic Home Financing Provider® to Washington, D.C. This new expansion will be served by our existing Mid-Atlantic regional office, located just outside of the District of Columbia, in Sterling, Virginia.
“Homeownership is an essential part of community building and we’ve proudly been serving the American Muslim community for over 15 years,” said Salman Ali, Guidance Residential’s Regional Manager for the Mid-Atlantic. “Nothing excites me more than the opportunity to serve the community in places where they didn’t have access to Islamic finance in the past. We look forward to serving the residents of the nation’s capital to further build and strengthen their community.”
Our Sterling branch office is open to D.C. residents Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. This particular branch can serve all those who seek interest-free home financing in English, Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic, Amharic, Tigrigna, Wolof, Bengali, and French.
