We especially liked signing all the final documents at our home. That was very convenient. We had a great experience and would not hesitate to work with Mike Metz and his team again.

Alice W. – Phoenix, AZ | 2016

Guaranteed Rate was the best - they kept me informed throughout the process. They also did not wait until the last minute to request documents - once they realized something was needed they asked for it. I would definitely use them again!

Lawrence M. – Sun Lakes, AZ | AUG 2016

We did a FSBO and needed to close quickly, without the help from the professionals at Guaranteed Rate we would never have closed on time and with the loan we wanted. Thanks again Guaranteed Rate!

Professional staff, great follow up, good team, they cared about what they do and their customer. Thank you Michael Metz and Guaranteed Rat!

Anne K. – Scottsdale, AZ | JAN 2016

Mike Metz and his staff were efficient, patient and helpful. It had been 30 years since I last applied for a mortgage loan, and there were many changes/requirements. Mike's attitude was always positive and encouraging; that meant a lot when time crunches occurred. Everyone in the GR chain was helpful and skilled in each phase/element, even to getting me a good rate for homeowners insurance

Patricia M. | JAN 2016

Mike Metz and his group made this process the easiest I have ever done. Very stress free! Everyone I worked with was extremely helpful. Thank you all for the easiest transaction ever!

Carol G. – Phoenix, AZ | DEC 2015

Mike and his team worked with me over the phone and e-mail quickly and efficiently, even the notary guy came to my work and all the papers were signed during my 30-minute lunch break! I even cancelled the lawyer because these wonderful people took care of removing my ex's name from the title. I have told all my co-workers about my great experience with Guaranteed Rate and I would highly recommend it to everybody.

Alfiya J. – Glendale, AZ | Oct. 2015

Special thanks to Erica Johnson for being there day and night, keeping me informed every step of the way & answering all my questions.

I wanted to personally say thank you for all your work and time you put into this closing. From the day escrow was opened, we completed and closed this file in 16 working days. You all have been very responsive and helpful on anything that was needed. Mike, you have a great team working with you. I experienced the most professional and friendly communications from everyone. I will give you the highest recommendation and am very pleased you still are personally involved just like the Sunstate...
