Mike Nielsen and his team are great, very thorough and quick to get us the information and answers we needed. This is the second time in one year that we have used them and we will continue to do so if needed, as well as recommend to anyone we know, thanks again!

Mike Nielsen was professional, efficient and communicative. He gave us a ton of information as the re-fi process went along. We were happy that we could submit all documentation online, and have a notary come to our house when it was convenient to us. As a millennial couple, this process moved at the speed we are used to with no hiccups. We are extremely happy customers.

All the parties involved were exceptionally helpful, particularly Mike. Whenever we had a question we simply emailed or called and had an immediate answer. Thank you very much, I am very satisfied.

"Working with Mike Nielsen is phenomenal. Not only is he available all the time via cell, email and text, but he is on the ball. He responds to me quickly and makes sure he does the best possible job for my clients. A quick "story": Client with 9 mortgages. Getting 10th mortgage. Appraisal comes in $100K low on TERRIBLE appraisal. Mike swoops in, gets appraisal desk review with knowledgeable appraiser. Buyer closes on time. Buyer happy, seller happy, realtor happy, lender happy. Everyone lives...

On behalf of my wife and I, we want to thank you and your team for the job that you guys did in closing on our home. You guys were able to get it done in the time we needed, where others said it wouldn't be possible. It was a true pleasure working with you. We will be referring all of our friends and family!

“I just had another great experience working with Mike Nielsen at Guaranteed Rate in Chicago. My clients were very happy with the service, terms and reasonable fee. Way to go Mike!”

"I have worked with Mike Nielsen for a number of years and he is phenomenal. Not only is he available all the time via cell, email and text, but he is on the ball. He responds to me quickly and makes sure he does the best possible job for my clients. A quick "story": 2. Client with 5% down. All gift funds. No funds of his own. Nightmare deal. Deal almost falls apart 15 times, but Mike works some sort of magic, I think, and closes deal ON TIME. Client never knows it was an issue. Buyer happy,...

Fantastic! Mike and everyone we worked with through e-mail correspondences were excellent. Our questions were always answered in a timely manner. We can't say enough good things about Mike- he helped us through the entire (very long) process. Thanks again Mike!

...I can't say enough about Mike Nielsen. My clients were working with another mortgage broker that they chose. Their broker made some mistakes. Mike took over the file and turned it around with a CTC in 3 days - a day ahead of expectations. It was also one of the smoothest closings I've attended. This wouldn't have closed without him! These clients will be purchasing several other properties in the near future.
I can't say enough great things about Mike. He's now my go-to broker.
Michelle M. - Realtor 4/2012
Everything went well, smooth as usual working with Mike Nielsen and his team. I financed my original home loan with Guaranteed Rate and have re-financed twice since then, both through Guaranteed Rate. I have referred several family members and friends, and they have gone on to close business with Guaranteed Rate. I believe I have now referred about 5 people that have ultimately closed loans with Guaranteed Rate.
