America's leading Islamic home financing provider now has even more to offer

RESTON, Virginia - Guidance Residential, the nation's largest and long-trusted provider of Islamic home financing, now has a new partner to help deliver a more streamlined and enjoyable journey towards homeownership. Guidance Home Services was recently launched to match pre-approved home buyers with pre-screened, independent real estate agents from its Network of Realtors.

Using a trained team of consumer advocates, Guidance Home Services can match buyers with highly qualified real estate agents licensed to transact in the buyer's targeted market. Once connected, Guidance Home Services monitors the buyer's progress to ensure certain milestones are being met and a smooth journey towards closing occurs. This service is completely complimentary to consumers, and provides professional real estate agents the opportunity to grow their business in a more efficient manner.

"While giant realty companies are busy thinking about how they can disrupt the Realtor business, we are embracing the entrepreneurial spirit of real estate agents," said Khaled Elsayed, President and CEO of Guidance Residential. "By partnering up with independent real estate agents who are highly respected in their local markets, we are providing buyers with a more streamlined process so that the journey towards home ownership is enjoyable for all."

Guidance Residential has a long history of providing a trusted riba-free home financing option to thousands of home buyers. The new full-service real estate agent referral platform through Guidance Home Services now fills an important gap so no buyer is left behind without the support they deserve. In addition to obtaining an underwriting pre-approval for financing from across 32 states, consumers can now experience a seamless process and an enjoyable service experience.
