Guild Mortgage named Mike Medlock as the branch manager for the company's Lee's Summit, Missouri location.

He joins Guild from Flat Branch Home Loans, where he was an area manager supervising all aspects of the home loan process for the Kansas City area. Before that, he served seven years as a branch manager and senior loan officer with Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc., which was then acquired by Guild. Medlock also held roles with First Community Bank, Supreme Lending, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, and Approved Home Mortgage LLC.

Midwest Regional Vice President Angi Stevenson said Medlock will be a key part of the management team and play an integral role in growing business for the branch in Lee’s Summit, the state’s sixth-largest city, and beyond. As a longtime local resident, he specializes in the Kansas City Metro area.

“Lee’s Summit has enjoyed quality growth over the years and has been recognized by Money Magazine as one of the 100 best places to live in the U.S.,” Stevenson said.

“Beyond helping first-time and other homebuyers with a wide range of loan options, Guild services most of its loans. This enables us to continue our relationships with homebuyers and help with their future lending needs, taking advantage of new loan programs,” said Medlock.

The Lee’s Summit branch is located at 255 NW Blue Parkway, Suite 202, Lee’s Summit, MO. The branch achieved strong results through the first nine months of 2021. For the period ended Sept. 30, 2021, the Guild branch had a volume of $78.9 million, up 23% from $64.1 million in the first nine months of 2020. In that same period, the number of units increased 17% to 361 from 309 and the average loan amount was $218,740, up 5% from $207,552, according to the company.
