Welcome to my website.
If your looking for a loan professional that really loves his job and cares about his clients you have come to the right place. Whether you've been through the loan process 20 times or this is your very first home I want to get to know you and make sure the process is as stress-free as possible.

I pride myself on being able to quickly assess the needs of my clients and help them make the right choice for their specific situation. Sometimes this includes referring them to someone else who happens to have a product that better fits their needs. Ensuring that you make the right choice for you and your family is my ultimate goal.

While I encourage you to browse my website and look at the different programs and tools, I would also love to hear from you. Shoot me an e-mail, give me a call, or hook up with me on one of the social media links below...,

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Matt was great to work with. Very professional, quick with his correspondence, and was good at explaining the process. Overall, it was a phenomenal mortgage experience.


We've financed two loans with Matt, and can't say enough good things! He makes the process easy to understand, and just about as painless as it can possibly be. We truly appreciated the level of communication we received at every step, his professionalism, and the speed with which he and his team worked. We closed our refi in less than 30 days! Amazing. Highly recommended!

Great to work with! Matt answered all of my questions fully and quickly as well as going the extra mile to find me an amazing deal on my new house! I would recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy a house in the Sacramento area and will be in touch with him when I am ready for my second home.

Antelope, CA

He was very prompt in responding to my inquiries and kept me informed every step of the way. We would not have been able to get the house of our dreams without his help and experience.

"Matt was great! Even though we had to conduct everything over the phone between LA and Sacramento he made me feel very comfortable with the loan process. I was unsure as to what I would do as I had different options for refinance and didn’t know what was best. I felt like I was talking to an advisor and not a salesman. After listening to my situation and what I wanted to accomplish he was able to advise me on what my best option was and explain the reasons why. After the loan closed I got a call from Matt that a gift was waiting at a local shop and he had already paid over the phone. What a nice touch Matt Gougé! Thanks for the Riazul!"

Tori & Kao

“Matt was extremely helpful and easy to work with. I am a first time homeowner and had never gone through the process of applying for a home loan. Matt worked with me to make the process seamless, and got the loan closed quicker than I could have imagined. By phone call or text, Matt responded quickly to any questions that I had and always kept me up to date as we moved through the process. He provided a personalized service that you wont get through a large lender and shows the highest level of integrity when working with his clients. I highly recommend Matt if you are in the market for a new home and are looking to secure a loan.”

Sacramento, CA

“I am grateful to Matt and the rest of his team for being so responsive to the mountain of questions I had being a first time homebuyer. Matt made sure to keep me in the loop regarding my transaction and welcomed any opportunity to be of further assistance. Matt cares about providing excellent customer service and it shows. I highly recommend giving him a call if you're considering purchasing a home.”

Elk Grove, CA

“Matt was our loan officer for our purchase of our first home. He was very informative and knowledgeable about all of our questions. He was able to explain everything and make us feel comfortable and more at ease about our investment. I would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone who needs a loan and look forward to the purchase of our next home with him.”
