Jason Chandler has handled at least 4 loans for us over the past 10 years. Every one of them was challenging due to our credit scores, tax issues, etc. Jason has taken the time to figure all of them out.

James P. - April | 2017

Jason was excellent. He worked tirelessly to ensure we closed on our house as close to the planned closing date as possible despite several obstacles. The obstacles included dealing with a new federal regulation, a non-cooperative title company, and dealing with the sellers and sellers' agent who did not communicate well. Jason was very easy to get a hold of despite our long working hours. We often needed to speak with him at 6:30PM or later due to our work schedules and he always answered our...

Haley G. - March | 2017

The Loan officer we worked with was Jason Chandler and he was great to work with. He was always available and quick to return all of my calls and emails.

I'd work with him again for sure and would gladly recommend him to friends and family.

Ryan C. – 8/9/2016

Jason was one of the most helpful people I have ever dealt with. He took the time to help me and my wife and answered every question that I had. I was in Korea when the process started and he took the time to work with me and assist my wife while I was unreachable. Jason was simply put "awesome". The professionalism of Jason made this experience super easy. I have already told a colleague that if he wants to purchase a house then he needs to contact Jason for help.

Jason was very professional and it was actually a great painless experience. I already recommended a friend to your business because I told him the experience I had and he is now working with Jason. I also have about 5 to 6 other friends looking to buy and already gave them Jason's Number also. Thanks for the great experience and I am glad we were able to do business together. My Family and myself thank you very much for the experience with your company.

About Jason

I first entered the mortgage business in 2002. I love that working in this industry allows me to help people achieve their homeownership dreams. Working for Guaranteed Rate gives me the ability to provide my clients with the best programs and rates to fit their needs. I have been in Guaranteed Rate’s Presidents Club every year since 2012.

I attended college at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Sociology. This has benefited my business by teaching me the best ways to interact with, understand, and listen to my clients.

I grew up in the town of Marissa, IL and I currently live on a farm outside of Smithton, IL with my wife and 4 kids. In my spare time, I enjoy running and coaching soccer, baseball, t-ball, and cross country.

I can see any file and tell if it is going to work or not before we get into the loan. If anyone can fix any loan, it is myself.
