I have been born, raised, and currently live in Fairfield county with my loving wife and son. I am a first generation American as my parents have both immigrated to this great county from Portugal looking to offer themselves and, more importantly, their future children a better life. I thank them for overcoming the large fear of leaving the only place they have ever known to travel a foreign land, unable to speak the language and with nothing but the clothes on their backs and their determination to start a new life. With that determination and hard work they carved out a life for themselves and raised my brother and I while finally enjoying retirement and their grandchildren. One of my favorite quotes comes from Abraham Lincoln when asked by a reporter "What is the one thing you wish you could have given your children?" Lincoln's response, "The one thing I wish I could have given my children would be to experience the trials and tribulations I experienced which made me the man I am today". Growing up first generation I came to know many of those. I started working full time at age 15 to save up money for my first car and have never stopped working since. I worked 2 jobs to get myself through college in which I graduated with a degree in Finance and now I work many hours doing what I love and that is helping people make intelligent choices about mortgage financing.
An award I have continuously won is the Connecticut Magazine 5-Star Service Award several years in a row, dating back to 2012.
|I was very satisfied with Manny Gomes and his professional team. All went seamlessly and received prompt responses to my questions and concerns. Also liked the fact Guaranteed Rate has the secured system to upload confidential documents, saving time, and was easy to use. Would refer Manny and Guaranteed Rate to prospective buyer.|

|He was very knowledgeable. He went over my finances and talked to me about the process and what to expect. Throughout the process, the Guaranteed Rate team responded to my questions and kept me updated. The process was so smooth. I only wished I had come to Guaranteed Rate sooner. I was able to get an approval within a month. I'm now in my new home, thanks to Guaranteed Rate and their wonderful people.|
Helping people purchase a home who did not believe home ownership was possible for them provides me with the most satisfaction in my job as a Loan Officer!
