Lilyette was fantastic and lovely to work with. She really knows her stuff and answered phone calls almost every time we called. When she didn't answer she called right back. My realtor liked her too and wants to use her as well. She went the extra mile for us and we really appreciate her drive to get us the loan we wanted. We did have trouble because we are both self employed and that was very difficult to convince the lender that we actually do have the money etc. Next time we will be better...

Lilyette Uriarte and her team did a great job and helped me to understand the whole process and kept me posted in every step of the way. I am very pleased and happy with the outstanding service that was provided to me.

Lilyette was by far amazing we have used others in the past and without a doubt she is just simply way above the rest. Her work ethic far exceeded anyone we have ever worked with and her care for her people and her job is something you just don't find these days. I have already told at least 6 people about her. We have nothing. It great things to say

Lilyette Uriarte made our Re-Finance experience totally awesome from beginning to the end. She was so professional in all aspects, she kept us updated almost daily if not daily. We were told things in the beginning that held true to the end and immediately notified when a change did occur. She simplified the process to the best of her abilities giving us plenty of response time and worked with us through a very difficult time when my Husband was hospitalized for 10 days during our process. ...

Lilyette did a great job finding me the best loan and kept me updated at every step along the way. Sandra and Julie kept me updated on items I needed to fax in order to qualify for the loan. All were very accessible either through email or phone for any questions I had along the way.

About Lilyette

I began my career in home loans in September of 2003 and quickly positioned myself as an expert among first-time home buyers. I maintained the #2 position in my office for all the years I worked at Bankers Preferred in Burlingame, CA. In November of 2013 I made a geographical move to Orange County and joined Guaranteed Rate where I believed I'd be starting my business almost from scratch, but quickly discovered that I had wonderful loyal clients who continued to use me as their mortgage expert. Guaranteed Rate has been a good choice for my clients for their wide variety of loan products, low rates, and their cutting edge technology. This year I'm on track to being part of the President's Club which positions me as one of the top producers of this company. I am a Seventh Day Adventist Christian and am deeply involved in my church and helping the community.

Lilyette interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
By asking a series of questions, and learning of my client's financial goals and objectives I am able to create a user-friendly analysis which we review together through modern technology. A review of this analysis is extremely insightful and useful in helping them make their final selection of loan.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
A purchase of a borrower who had started a self-employed business but didn't continue it and never officially closed it. Instead he was reporting negative earnings on his tax returns which negatively impacted his income from his W2 job and this disqualified him for the loan. We contacted the necessary agency and closed the business officially, but our underwriter still accounted him for the negative earnings because he had failed to close the business earlier in the year. At the time of his purchase we were 10 months into the year. We found other income sources he had and eliminated credit card debt in the middle of his transaction saving the deal and creating very happy clients.
What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
Closing credit cards will help their credit profile look better. This is very harmful to your credit. Shopping for home loans with multiple lenders will give me better options. This will cause multiple inquiries on your credit lowering your FICO. Finding the property first, and then getting pre-approved for a home loan. This is putting the cart before the horse.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
When my clients tell me they feel they are being well-communicated to and feel confident with me as their mortgage professional.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I love to sing in my spare time
