Getting a loan through Guaranteed Rate was a walk on the beach!

Damian K. - Chicago, IL | JUL 2016

It was wonderful to work with everyone. My loan officer was the best!

Joan L. - Orland Hills, IL | JUL 2016

I loved that everything was online and via email/Docusign etc. I never met the team in person or had to go to the office, it was great!

Juan M. - Plainfield, IL | JUL 2016

Michael did an excellent job catering to my needs. He went above and beyond past experiences I have had.

Nicole J. -Palos Heights, IL | MAR 2016

Michael Curtain was so understanding, comforting and got the job done within my tight schedule. I don't think this experience would've been as smooth with out him and his expertise! Michael Curtain made himself very accessible via email, phone and text day or night. He explained everything I needed to know in great detail so I could understand as I am a first time home buyer.

Jocelyn W. - Chicago,IL | Nov. 2014

I have been telling all my friends to use Mike Curtain and Guaranteed Rate for their loans. My wife, Realtor, and lawyer, were all impressed that the Mike Curtain showed up to the closing. Shows how professional guaranteed rate really is.
