Vice President of Mortgage Lending
Living by the values of honesty and integrity that his father — Robert Bolton, a successful businessman from Rhode Island — instilled in him at a young age has taken David Bolton far in his financial career. From the time he spent at the Wall Street offices of EF Hutton and Bear Stearns in the 1980s and 1990s to Guaranteed Rate today, Bolton has more than 30 years of experience assisting clients with their finances. But he’s found the most satisfaction in helping people achieve their homeownership goals.
He moved to Miami from Boston five years ago. “I brought my Boston work ethic and tenacity to Miami,” says Bolton, vice president of mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate. “I believe my hard work and attention to detail has helped me succeed here in this international market.”
Bolton works with all levels of domestic and foreign homebuyers and recently helped an executive from South America, who works for Microsoft, secure a loan for a new home in Miami. After the transaction was completed, the client wrote Bolton a letter commending him and his team for ensuring the process was successful and making the client feel like part of their team. “I have always loved finance and numbers and have worked hard to better myself both personally and professionally,” Bolton says. “I take each client’s goals and dreams very personally.”
Miami’s sunny climate inspires Bolton to be active outdoors all year long, something he was not able to do while living on the East Coast. His favorite pastimes are biking, tennis, golf, or just grabbing a six-pack of beer and bag of chips and heading to the beach with his wife, Claudia, whom he married in August 2018.
“I’m very excited to be building a life with her here in Miami,” he says, noting that they’re both excited for what the future may bring. “We are looking forward to establishing roots here — along with New England, where I am from — and Peru, where she is from.
