All of Peter's follow up e-mails were a very nice touch. It is always appreciated to hear from anyone who thanks you for your business. I thought the whole process went smoothly, and the quick feedback from the Brookfield office was great. Five weeks from start to finish was painless.

"We really felt that we received a real value for our dollar through Guaranteed Rate. Peter was great to work with he was very professional and anticipated all our needs. The communication was wonderful as well - very timely with answers and follow-up. We could not believe the amount of material we had to provide but it has been several years since our last mortgage, and things have certainly changed. It went great because we got lucky with Pete! "

Peter interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I Have been in the Mortgage Business for over 30 years.

How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
When I started in mortgage lending it was done by in large through local Banks and Savings & loans, Today we have evolved to goverment contolled agencys and Wall Steet funding. Underwiting is a cook book policy and a one size fits all mentality, and I would expect more rules and regualtions to follow
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
The best way to insure a smooth purchse transaction is to plan ahead. Meet with a trusted Mortgage Loan Officer to get prequalified and advised on the best way to approch your own situation, this holds true for a first time, 2ed, or 3rd time home buyer, because of the ever changing market conditions.
