"Assalamu alaikum brother Hamza, We wanted to drop you a note in order to express our thanks for helping us secure a mortgage. We literally wouldn't have been able to do all of this without the hard work you did for us to ensure we could finally celebrate our first home. Thank you so much brother. You were so great to deal with and got us an amazing rate. We really appreciated your efforts through the whole process. And particularly appreciated you keeping us in the loop throughout. We've just finished moving everything in now. And alhamduliallah, we are very happy with the outcome. We both look forward to keeping you up to date with the progress as we build, as well as working with you again on our future purchases inshallah. Thank you so much for all that you do! I'll sure try to recommend my friends and relatives who are shopping for homes to you. Again, thanks for your help."

"It's been a couple of weeks since we moved into the new home. It is great alhamdolilah and everyday as I remember Allah blessings, the thought to thank Allah for the blessing of a easy mortgage process comes to mind and I especially feel thankful for having worked with you. Brother Nabil, you made the process very easy for us especially when this was our first home purchase. We panicked a few times, but you remained patient and explained what was going on. Every time there were minor bumps, we got worried but you always just took care of them. Everyone always told us how hard the mortgage process is but we did not experience any such thing. This is a testament to Guidance but more so I attribute it to you, your personality, positive and very professional attitude and sincere desire to help us get our first home in the US. May Allah reward you for your efforts and give barakat to you."

"Working with Sami Kabir for last 6 years and have successfully completed multiple transactions with him. Transactions included both refinance and purchase of new homes. He has worked with me to lay out all the best options available that suit my needs and financial goals. I was guided through the entire process from initiating an application to close. He is very professional and efficient. You cannot go wrong with Sami Kabir and I would not want to work with anyone else."

"I had financed my first house through Guidance about 16 years ago, and my experience was not that great. When I refinanced my current house, I happened to meet Nejat Abdurahman who is highly professional that easily guided me through the process. She made the process very seamless and enjoyable. I am truly satisfied with her service and the care provided. I highly appreciate Nejat for her knowledge, expertise and will not hesitate to recommend her."

"I feel myself fortunate that I got in touch with Sister Nejat Abdurahman at Guidance. My experience with Guidance and especially with Sister Nejat was a memorable one. She was very professional, highly customer service oriented, quick responder and expert in her field. Her work ethics were very impressive. As a customer of mortgage financing, we always have a lot of questions with our rep, Sister Nejat was very responsive and always extremely respectful, polite and courteous. Amazingly she gave us her cell number also and we have access to her 24x7, which is very rare in this business. During entire process she was very prompt in keeping us updated on the status of process, which was a great help and gave us peace of mind. Guidance Residential is blessed to have an individual like Sister Nejat Abdurahman on their staff. She is a major asset to Guidance Residential and I think the company can use her to train other staff members for transferring her high level of skills. I would like to recommend every Muslim Brothers and Sisters to Sister Nejat Abdurahman."

"Recently Amer Gohar assisted me in obtaining a home loan from Guidance Residential. I consider myself a very demanding customer and also being a professional in customer service industry my expectations are very high. I must say, Amer knows the art of providing excellent customer service and representing his company very well. Service like this is the very reason for me to continue sending my friends to Guidance Residential. Amer truly go above and beyond his duties. This is true for all of his interactions with him and with the closing company and builder. Particularly, the closing company had lots of good things to say about him and Guidance Residential. According to them "Amer has got PASSION towards his work". Please pass along my appreciation to Amer Gohar - He is definitely a credit to your organization."

"Earlier this year me and my wife decided that we wanted to purchase a house. After renting, I was hesitant to buy because I did not want to incorporate Interest in my life. I did some research and found out about Guidance Residential. I spoke to Mr Zeeshan on the phone for an hour where he explained to me how their home financing works. I got a quote, compared it to other conventional debt quotes and was very surprised that they were so competitive - I was not paying more for Islamic financing. After I found the house that I wanted we had an issue with the seller where she needed to finish the sale in a period requiring that everything should be completed quickly by the deadline. Mr Zeeshan was very prompt with asking for documents and making sure that everything got done in time. Since it was my first home purchase, I had to be walked through every step and educated but he made sure that everything was very clear and that I had full information. He was always available to answer questions and at closing, he was working extra hard communicating with all parties. I really appreciate the way he handled the sale process and I highly recommend him for anyone wishing to purchase a house."

Brother Khalil is knowledgeable about the product, always reachable, and very helpful. With his instant availability he was able to resolve our issue immediately and Al-Hamdolillah we closed earlier than we were required to. We felt very comfortable with the whole process. Thank you all Guidance team; Mohamed, Faye, Fredy, and Tarek."

"I have closed on my house on August 25th and moved in on August 30th. The purpose of this letter is to give my personal thanks to you and the team that was working on my application. I would like to thank you all and appreciate all the effort that you have put through to get the process completed smoothly. The team has worked tirelessly to get me through the process. I can say that because I had emails coming in at 11:00 PM and the same person sending it again at 7:00AM. That means a lot. A lot of my friends had to appreciate the speed and the smoothness of my process. The team was not only working hard but was also very patient with me. I made numerous nervous enquiries via phone calls, text messages, emails. Every time I had the same pleasant response from Guidance team, which was not only accurate but was very prompt. Home buying is a very nervous experience but the team put me at ease and helped alleviate a lot of that feeling. I definitely consider myself lucky to have worked with this team. I once again would like to thank each one of you individually. You all are a great asset to the profession you are in and Guidance is lucky to have you all as part of their organization."

"Assalamalaikum, I just wanted to take a moment and give you some feedback on my experience with guidance residential, especially with Aasim Ikramullah. I had my home recently refinanced and have to the say the experience was amazing from beginning to end. Aasim, is a delight to work with and answered so many questions throughout the process and made it so easy to understand! He even followed up with me daily after the closing to make sure I was satisfied and if everything went well. What an amazing experience and I am so happy to have refinanced with Guidance. Aasim is a complete gem for your company and I’m honored to have had him as my first point of contact with Guidance. I will for sure refer you to others if I get the opportunity. Have an excellent day."

"I wanted to share my home buying experience which Abdihakim Ali facilitated for me. I was referred to him by a family friend; he told me I was in good hands and I am glad I choose him as my account executive. Being a first time homebuyer, everything was new to me and overwhelming, but Abdihakim walked me through everything including the different options available . He was always there to answer questions in a timely fashion and I rest assured that I was being well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Abdihakim and this company to friends and family especially my Muslim friends who are hesitant to go through the regular home financing. Keep up the good work."
