Lance is very knowledgeable, ethical, and FAST! He saved us over $27,000 on a recent loan. A realtor friend of mine recommended him, she does a lot of business with Lance and calls him "her magician" cause he gets stuff done fast, and pulls off feats of wonder for her and her clients. It was a good referral! Highly recommend working with Lance at Guaranteed Rate.

I've refinanced many times and I have to say this was the best loan experience that I have ever had. That's saying a lot, especially in today's lending environment. Our loan officer Lance is top notch and is supported by a great company. He had a lot of confidence in the appraisers they used, underwriters, and processors. And they all came through. I have already referred him to family members and am looking forward to working with him again.

This was a fantastic experience! Lance Ray is a top notch professional and very responsive. His expertise was second to none, which resulted in a very easy path to completing this loan.

Brent D. - San Clemente, CA 9/2012

Thank you Guaranteed Rate! With Jake Stokes, and Lance Ray, guiding us gently through the entire process, we were able to close escrow in 21 days. .. We recommend Guaranteed Rate for anyone who appreciates professionalism (and a small bit of hand-holding) throughout the mortgage-obtaining process. What was so confirming about the entire process was that it was our real estate agent who turned us on to Guaranteed Rate, for we were unaware of the companies existence…

Robbie and Bill S. Yucca Valley, CA 2/2012

Everything was perfect. From the moment I spoke to Lance to the closing of Escrow he made me feel like I was his only client. I could call at any time and ask any question and he was always helping me and never rushed me off the phone... ...Everything was smooth and Lance is great! Customer service was exceeded when I received a follow up phone call a few days later to see how things were going with the new house. I am a Raving Fan!

Sydney H. - Riverside, CA 9/2011

Both myself and my wife were extremely pleased with the performance of Guaranteed Rate Inc. in helping us purchase our home. We were particularly happy with Lance Ray. I can't say enough about how helpful he was throughout the entire process. I would definitely use the company again, and would recommend the company to family and friends with enthusiasm. I was recommended to Guaranteed Rate Inc. by a colleague at my job.
