Claudia Gooch was well informed of how the VA loan process worked and my relocation situation. She helped us find a solution when our home we were not leaving would not be sold by the time we were to close on the new house. She took the time to put several scenarios together so that we were prepared and could meet our deadlines. We closed on the new house with no issues and two weeks early.

Our experience with Julia and her team was superior to any we have ever received. They were absolutely fabulous and so kind and well knowledged for all of our questions. I can't tell you how good they were to us since right in the middle of this loan process by husband was in a horrible accident and they went the extra mile to help us and never once did I ever feel they were annoyed at our questions. I would recommend them to anyone and I have heard about Guaranteed Rate on commercials and...

Julia interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have passionately served my mortgage clients with their home purchase and refinance needs for the last 17 years. I was inspired to get into the industry because I was able to work so closely with buyers during a very special time in their lives. The longer I have been in the business the more cherished my experiences have been. We have developed relationships with so many incredible people I can’t imagine my life without these relationships. Our Team believes that there should not only be a streamlined, efficient mortgage process; but one that is also completely transparent. Our thorough process is planned down to the smallest detail so that our home purchase and refinance clients can see our end goal at the inception of the process. Our digital mortgage process is truly remarkable and we are really proud to bring an incredible, fast, unique experience to our clients, realtors and loan officers.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
The digital mortgage has revolutionized the mortgage process and we are proud to be the only retail mortgage lender in the Country with this technology. There seems to be a misconception that obtaining a mortgage is difficult or the process of finding the best product or rate is an "obstacle course". Our Team provides a transparent process, with incredible technology that ensures your mortgage will be handled with ease.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
During the home buying process we will manage and care for every detail for our home buyers. Be it a corporate relocation or buying a home across town, it is important to use our digital mortgage prequalification services as early in the process as possible. We can literally complete the online pre approval process in roughly 15 minutes. The home buying process is a symphony of many moving pieces coming together all at one time. We will conduct this symphony to make sure that every piece is tuned up and working beautifully.
Are you active in any local associations or community groups, and at what level? What goals and/or success have you helped these groups achieve?
Core values and high level customer service are extremely important to the building of my mortgage practice. I have participated for 8 years in the Building Champions Masters' Coach program for elite mortgage Teams around the country. I am also active in participating with the Guaranteed Rate Foundation which provides support to those in need be it our employees, clients or those in our community. I have been very active in the mortgage industry and understand the importance that our industry is here to serve this country while helping to foster a healthy mortgage and real estate market.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a dedicated long distance runner. Nothing makes me happier than to take my Siberian Husky on long runs in the snow in freezing temperatures. I have completed over 15 full marathons and many triathlons & half marathons being cheered on by my 3 kids and wonderful husband of almost 20 years.
