"My wife and I are first time home buyers and we worked with Billy Burns and his team at Guaranteed Rate on our mortgage. They really made our experience a positive one. Billy was very supportive throughout the process and was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had. Billy also did a great job in getting our closing costs down as much as possible. He even sent us a pair of movie tickets to help relieve some of the stress of home-buying! If you are looking for a mortgage broker,...

“Billy Burns from Guaranteed Rate was fantastic! He went over each and every page of the loan documents and explained to me what and why I was signing.

Awesome, Billy is very good at what he does. I was a first time home buyer and he was so good about taking the time to meet with me and really walk me through the process.

Billy Burns and his team did our loan in a little over three weeks start to finish. The appraisal report didn't come in until the morning of the closing, and we had our final approval by noon. I couldn't be more pleased with our experience. We got an excellent rate and superior service.

“After waiting six months on a short sale, the lending bank suddenly decided to accept our offer but gave us a four-week deadline to secure financing. Billy Burns and his team got our loan secured at a great rate and a good price. After problems turned up with the previous owner not wanting to allow access to the property for the appraiser, Billy completed the final approval the morning of the closing at the absolute last minute. Their hard work really paid off for us. I'd recommend them to...

Hey, check out this amazing review from Emily about Billy! “We used Billy Burns as our mortgage broker for the purchase of our first house -- his customer service really is extraordinary. He was always available and walked us through each step towards what was admittedly a very complicated closing process.

Hey, check out this amazing review from Jim about Billy! “A friend recommended me to Billy Burns. He was professional and honest from day one. The best part was that he refinanced my townhouse with zero down! I am now saving over $375 a month on my new mortgage payment. It all seemed too good to be true, but it was true! I highly recommend Guaranteed Rate!”

Hey, check out this amazing review from Matt about Billy! “My experience with Guaranteed Rate, and specifically Billy Burns, was quick, easy and painless! They gave me several different options based on my refinancing needs/wants and were able to get me the best rate.

Hey, check out this amazing review from Brad about Billy! “I am a broker in the downtown area and I have given every client of mine the option of Billy Burns with Guaranteed Rate, and will continue to do so.

Hey check out the amazing review from Srikanth about Reddy! “Billy went above and beyond for us, getting us an extension on our loan without an additional charge, and we really appreciate his help throughout the process. We got locked in with a very low interest rate and were extremely satisfied! Thanks Billy!”

Wrapped up my mortgage with Billy Burns from Guaranteed Rate. If you need mortgage help get with him. Great guy, honest and detailed!
Many many thanks for getting me through this refinance process. Not only did I get a great rate and a savings in my monthly mortgage costs, I had the opportunity to work with solid professionals like you. The amount of document collection and verification of funds and payment history along with timing and project management is daunting to say the least. I donâ€™t know how you keep it all straight. If I hear of anyone looking to refinance you know I will refer your team with high praise.

Everything went great...we were first time home buyers and we felt like Billy Burns and his team was just working for us. Every time we had a question about anything we got an immediate response or call back. They supplemented us with all the proper requests on documentation. I am very pleased with how everything went and would definitely use Guaranteed Rate again for a new home purchase or re-financing. And, I already have recommended you to friends and family.
