These folks simply know what they are doing! Their experience accompanied by their knowledge and commitment to meeting client needs was very impressive. Were very flexible and offered a better rate. John Santorineos was simply great and I confided in him and his suggestions, which you can tell were very honest and he was looking out to get you the best rate based on my needs

John Santorineos is very knowledgeable and shares everything in detail, which makes the process even easier and smoother. He was very attentive and made sure that we understood every single aspect of the whole lending process, which was imperative for myself as a first time home buyer. More importantly, his responsiveness and timeliness with everything was beyond impressive. I can see why folks love to work with him and will certainly recommend folks to him.

John Santorineos and his team (i.e. Souzy Grammatis) were extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. John and his team made this a painless process. I have worked with John Santorineos multiple times over the past several years and each time I have had a pleasant experience. John Santorineos and his staff make the process easy and are very responsive to my questions.

John has a remarkable team who is professional, caring, extremely knowledgeable. I think that says volumes about him. I was kept informed every step of the way. Thank you so much John.

Cissy N. -- Arlington Heights, IL. 10/23/2014

He takes care of all customers- no matter what type of loan you are looking for. He treated us all with the upmost respect and helped guide us through our situation. He was clear and precise and very friendly. It is the relationship that develops that will bring people back to the same company. The follow through and guidance from John and Suzy and Guaranteed Rate was the reason we would come back and work with you again. The service and attention to the customer was superb!

John interview Q&A

What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Don't procrastinate! Once you receive the email with your electronic mortgage application, try to get to it within 24 hours. In addition, documents that will be necessary to approve your mortgage, such as W2s and paystubs, send them to us as quick as possible. When you move quickly, that will help my staff approve your loan quicker. These tips will help take most of the stress out of the mortgage approval process so you can relax and focus on other matters in your life.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I enjoy spending time with my family, running 5ks and especially, I enjoy helping people learn more about the Bible and the good news that God plans to make this earth a beautiful paradise.
