Aug 13, 2009

Guardian First Funding Group received approval from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to convert to a non-supervised lender, commonly known as a Full-Eagle. "This approval allows us to continue our growth plans and control our own destiny from origination to closing, thus ensuring a very high level of customer satisfaction for the senior demographic," said Jason Levy, CEO. He further added that last year he made a public statement regarding growth over the next 12 months. "I predicted Guardian would quadruple its loan officer base and break into the top 20 in HECM HUD rankings." The most recent rankings show Guardian First in 11th position year-to-date and in the 9th position for the month of July. Levy further commented that his company's growth will continue well into the foreseeable future. For more information, visit
