We felt like Stefanie worked her butt off for us. She was always available and quick to respond to questions. Stefanie provided a very personal service, it often felt like we were her only client, like we were the most important thing she had going on that day. Exceptional service!

Stefanie Barrett was amazing. Her dedication, hard work, and patience made the whole process a pleasant one. She came highly recommended to us by a friend. We will recommend Stefanie to anyone interested in a loan in the future. She was quick to reply night or day. Stefanie was clear in identifying issues and providing options. Guaranteed Rate could not have a better representative. Defiantly 11 out of 10!

Stefanie went out of her way to make us feel like family. This was more of a learn in experience than a corporate process.

I have purchased, sold, and purchased again. All transactions were done with Guaranteed Rate. Stefanie Barrett has been amazing through each process. I thank her constantly for being so helpful and professional through the entire process! I have recommended Guaranteed Rate to several friends, family , and co workers! Look forward to my next transaction! Thanks again.

My wife and I have used the services of Stefanie Barrett from Guaranteed Rate 4 times now! She was originally referred to us from a reliable source and she has not disappointed us. We have financed and refinanced a number of times previously, so we know the difference between a stressful one and a pleasant one. Stefanie and all of her associates are the same - nice people and very professional. We have been pleased with the outcome each time, financially speaking, but the process went so smooth...

I've worked on a few deals with Stefanie, including my own, and her service has been nothing less than outstanding. Loans close when scheduled, and if not, she constantly communicates the issues so they can be fixed. don't have to worry about not being able to get in contact with her.

Rorey W., Century 21 showcase

Several family members had refinanced mortgages with Stefanie at Guaranteed Rate in the last couple of years; so when we finally decided to refinance recently, we didn't call anyone else. Stefanie informed us of our options, got us a great rate, kept us informed throughout and everything went smoothly and in a timely manner. The easiest mortgage transaction we have had in 30+ years of home financing!

Jan & Marc Abney - Lafayette, Indiana

My wife and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the great job you did in the refinancing of our house. As you know I have worked with numerous lenders due to the fact that I am a Realtor. But you have far surpassed any of my expectations on this experience. I definitely will never ever use another lender for myself and will refer you to every possible buyer I come across. Thanks for being honest, fair, and most importantly you treated us like we were family. I know you...

Mike and Tracy

Stefanie's attitude, expertise, and extremely helpful attitude & approach made this an outstanding experience throughout the entire process!

David H. -- Glendora, CA. -- 5/ 2013

Thank you for everything as well. With the loan industry changing every minute, it feels that my escrows take longer and longer - the back up with the ordering of the appraisal and loan. With your transaction, there was no hold up which is fabulous. I will definitely recommend you!

About Stefanie

I love being a Loan Officer because I enjoy helping people obtain their financial goals. Whether it be buying their first home or refinancing to save money or to do some home improvements. I am a wife and a mother of a 16 year old that just started driving so I am very patient.

Stefanie 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 industry for over 15 years and have seen many changes within the industry. I love helping people whether it be by reaching their dream of buying a home for the first time, a vacation home or refinancing and saving money every month. I treat every one of my customers as if they were my only client and as I would want to be treated by a Loan Officer.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I don' just take an application. I have a conversation with my customers and find out what specific needs each one of them has to determine together what the best product or program would be for them.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
Patient and prompt responses. It is the first thing I tell all of my first time home buyers. I do everything I can to make the home buying process as easy and stress free as possible by providing information and being available to answer any questions that come up. The client providing information promptly makes for a quick and easy closing.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
The step by step process and paperwork needed. I find that some Borrowers are unaware of the steps of a loan transaction and the paperwork that is needed from them to have a successful closing. I provide a flyer that explains the process from start to finish as well as a list of items needed from the Borrower.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
I really enjoy helping people reach their financial goals whether it be through buying a home or refinancing to save money or do home improvements. I have a personal goal to provided the best program and Customer Service for each individual client.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I enjoy going to the beach, decorating, gardening and trying new restaurants. Most of all, I am very family oriented and feel that a happy family life is the most important accomplishment.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I get great enjoyment by sending an inspirational quote of the day to my daughter and her best friend. Let me know if you want me to add you to the daily text.
