We were forewarned from friends and family that getting a mortgage is a very stressful process. We did not feel stressed in the slightest. Steps/directions were clearly explained, anyone we spoke to was very helpful, and we were able to close in a fairly short amount of time. We're so happy in our new home thanks to Guaranteed Rate!

Matt was incredibly knowledgeable. He made us feel comfortable with the process and we knew we were in good hands. Maryellen walked us through the initial steps. She was also knowledgeable and super friendly. She kept the good vibes rolling. Monica was at least 6 to 7 different types of Awesome! She took our calls, quickly responded to emails and had all our steps lined out. She even communicated to me on closing day to reassure me that she was there if I needed anything. This was a great team...

Matthew interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
No 2 borrowers are the same. Everyone tends to have their own unique set of circumstances and/or motivations for what they are looking to accomplish. Knowing how much our industry has changed over the past several years, the most common question pertains to the process and what is involved in getting a mortgage in today\'s market.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Buying a home is often one of the most exciting times in a person\'s life. You tend to always remember the first house you bought and the day you closed. A borrower is entitled to have a great experience, asking many detailed questions upfront will better prepare you for what is expected and ultimately lead to a successful closing.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
The key to having a smooth underwriting process is maintaining your financial records. Having digital copies of the past two years tax returns with w2\'s, complete bank statements covering at least 2 months, and recent paystubs will allow for smoother process. One key area to note, any deposit over $1,000 other than direct deposit from an employer, will always need to be verified. Maintaining the right documents will make the process much easier for any borrower.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in West Orange, New Jersey, attended Seton Hall Prep for high school and received a teaching degree in Secondary Education from Kent State University. I\'m married to Anne Marie Keane and we have 4 great kids, Matt, Jack, Connor & Lily. I have been volunteer fire fighter for 15 years and currently serve with the Madison Fire Department in Madison NJ.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Probably the most surprising thing about me is being a fireman. It\'s always been a point of interest to me and is a great way to give back to your local community.
