Will Hockema was very personable, easy to work with and responsive to questions. He made us feel very comfortable throughout the process. Guaranteed Rate and specifically Will Hockema were fantastic. At every step I felt like we were partners in the home buying process and that they were looking out for my best long-term interests even if it it required short term inconvenience.

Will Hockema was tremendous! We could have never gotten through this process without him. With all the situations do deal with, the paper work and so much information that we were not familiar with , Will went the extra mile. He stayed in contact with us, spent much time explaining in layman terms what we were unsure of and he spent long late night hours helping this process to happen for us. We were treated like family, assured, encouraged and honest professional guidance. Will is an asset to...

Will interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
First and foremost, I like to start off with a simple conversation to learn about my client’s current situation and goals. I try to place myself in their shoes and leverage my knowledge & experience to find the best suited options for them.
What are the pros and cons of a fixed rate mortgage versus an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)?
Fixed rate mortgages are a more conservative approach and best if the property will be held for a longer period of time or kept as an investment property. Adjustable rate mortgages known as ARMs can help a customer qualify initially and is a great option if you plan on selling the property within a few years.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
Homepath and 203k loans are loan products consumers do not seem to know much about. These products can help you purchase property that is Fannie Mae owned and help with improvements to a property.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
A satisfied customer. It’s particularly great the moment they get the new keys to their home.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love just about anything outdoors especially when it also involves my close friends and family
