Our loan officer was Joanne Rogers and she was a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was readily accessible to answer all of our questions and concerns within fast reasonable time frames. Regardless of how simple or difficult our questions,concerns, or requests might have been, she was patient, positive, respectful, courteous and professional at all times. Even during "off hours" or when out of town! From day 1 through closing day, we knew we were in great...

Joanne Rogers has done excellent work for me as a mortgage broker with Guaranteed Rate. She handled both the purchase of my home and a subsequent refinance, and was knowledgeable, professional, and committed throughout the entire process. Joanne has a high degree of integrity and skill, and I would highly recommend her.

Heidi S., Gurnee, IL

Joanne was phenomenal as our home mortgage broker in 2003. She stayed in constant contact with us to lock in the best rate we saw anywhere, and made sure everything was on time in a market that was flooded with transactions. We were so pleased with her expertise and personal attention; we went back to her every time we needed a mortgage or wanted to refinance an existing one. On top of all this, her fees and rates have always been the best.

Stephen L., Arlington Heights, IL

About Joanne

I started in the mortgage business in 2003. I had three young kids and wanted to find a rewarding job that also gave me the flexibility to be present for my family. Little did I know at the time that I would love the challenge of structuring the best loan possible to meet my client's needs. It's somewhat like working on a puzzle.

I graduated from UW-Madison (go Badgers!), with a BA in Political Science. It taught me how to do research and analyze data. I use these skills every day as a mortgage loan originator.

I am married, and those three young kids are in high school, and preparing for college. We live in Wilmette, with its great schools and proximity to Lake Michigan. I'm originally from Boston, and love to go back east to eat lobster and swim in the ocean. Besides travel, I love interior design and walking my Bernese Mtn Dog.

Joanne interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
I love working with first-time homebuyers, and educating them on the process of buying a home. They need to have a full understanding of both the benefits and the risks, to ensure they are investing in a home that makes sense. My greatest pride is maintaining relationships with my clients over many years, so I'm their go-to source for their future home financing needs.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Ask as many questions as necessary so that you have a thorough understanding of the home buying process. There are no silly questions. I am here to educate you, as well as close your loan.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
It's important to reach out to me as early in the home buying process as possible. That way I can advise you on everything from optimizing your credit scores to ensuring you have an adequate downpayment. Each client is unique and I'm here to guide you on what it takes to get your loan approved. Guidelines change often, and I am up to speed on what is required.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I really enjoy spending time with my family. With three kids, there is always a water polo match, volleyball game or dance recital. I want to be there for all of it.
