This was truly a remarkable experience. I've gone through 4 mortgage processes in the past 6 years, and this one was so easy and transparent as compared to working with a "big bank." I truly felt that the staff at Guaranteed Rate were looking out for my best interests, while the big banks left me feeling that they were only concerned with their best interests. The paperwork was straightforward, the closing was seamless. I've already recommended Guaranteed Rate twice in the past month.

Shant was great to work with and really worked seamlessly with our real estate agent and lawyer. He was prepared to answer all of our questions, and he presented us with all of the information we needed to make the financial decisions that work for our family. His team worked around the clock. We got our loan approval on 11pm on a Sunday!

I worked with Shant Banosian and his team. From the outset felt confident that they were really there to help me go through the process as easily as possible. Everything was explained so well, and they were there each step of the way, down to little details I appreciated, such as access to an online portal that helped me submit a change of address and arrange for utilities to be transferred. They were accessible around the clock, answering each question and concern as they came up. They were highly organized, friendly, and delightful to work with. Would highly recommend working with Shant!

If you have the opportunity to with with Shant Banosian, you know you are truly in the best of hands!
On 2 seperate occasions, a member of his team (Lisa) personally drove to my client's workplace to pick up paperwork that he was unable to get to them. To say that Shant & his team go the extra mile is an understatement. No matter how many other deals he has going on, he always makes himself available to you whenever you need to be in touch. Additionally, he takes the time to thoroughly address all of your questions and concerns. I am extremely impressed by the dedication & genuine care he & his team displayed throughout the entire transaction.
I recommend Shant and his team at Guaranteed Rate with a great deal of enthusiasm. Since closing my first deal with him, I can say that he has lived up to everything he promised, and even surpassed my expectation. Only Shant would be able to pull off an FHA condo approval in less than 1 month! Shant is top in the mortgage business because he is knowledgeable, resourceful, dedicated, professional, and most importantly, he has a true understanding of how to provide excellent customer service.
Shant and his team were so helpful and so professional! I will recommend Shant to anyone I know looking for a great rate and great service!

“I had an absolutely brilliant experience with Shant Banosian at Guaranteed Rate. It was so much easier than having to deal with the banks. Shant and his team even secured me a much lower interest rate than I was expecting. Shant was truly wonderful to work with -- he was professional, courteous and extremely helpful. He was always there to answer questions (literally anytime throughout the day) and I constantly got updates regarding my loan status. I would not hesitate to refer Shant to my friends, family and colleagues since I know they will be well taken care of.”

Shant Branosian went above and beyond to help me get my dream home. If he wasn't always in touch then his team was, whether weeknights, weekends. Shant was able handle my questions and concerns easily. He helped calm my nerves and always assured me he would 'get it done' and he did! Speaking as someone who loves what she does for a living, I can tell Shant loves his work and has a passion for his customers successful closings!!! Well done guys!
Deanne D.-- Chicago, IL, -- 6/ 2013
“I had the pleasure of financing a new mortgage with Shant Banosian and his team. He came highly recommended by an attorney friend of mine. I shopped around and Shant quoted me the best rate. He then proceeded to give me the best service I've had out of the seven mortgage processes I've been through. He responded to every single question I had in a timely manner. He was up front about all costs and made sure I got to closing without any issues. I would highly recommend giving Shant a call if you're in the market!”

A large sector of my clients are first time home buyers. What I love about Shant Banosian and his team is the fact that they sit down and take the time to meet my buyer clients, take them through the pre-approval and financing process, answer all questions they have and are always extremely responsive. This top notch customer service paired with extremely competitive rates are the reasons why I refer my buyer clients to Shant. It is peace of mind to know that my clients are being taken care of and given the best service possible on the financing side of their home purchase.

As a closing attorney, it is a privilege to work Shant Banosian. From the loan officers to the closing department, the company is staffed with the best and the brightest. Everyone knows the difficulties the lending industry has faced over the past few years, and as a result, it has never been more important for borrowers to select a mortgage company that truly understands the marketplace and will be there in the future. They weathered the storm because they did it right from the beginning, and it is without hesitation that I recommend Shant and his team. Gregory Janian, Esq.
