Quick and easy. Told us what we needed, we got it to them and we had very little else to do.

Lee S. | August 2018

Our GR team (Adam Slack) is very knowledgeable and offered us several options to choose from. This is our second time using GR and we would not hesitate to use again. From the initial phone call until closing (which had to happen very quickly), GR was right there every step of the way to assist us and keep us up to date.

Brett N. | August 2018

Adam and his team are true professionals, experienced and were very helpful in explaining all the details of the loan. They took the time to answer question and are very patient.

Shelley W. - May | 2018

Adam Slack and Audra Martz and team were exceptional. They are the epitome of a professional and classy organization. They assisted us at every step in the process, and bent over backwards when we faced some unexpected hurdles. they were very responsive and super quick which aided us greatly in closing in a shorter timeframe. we would highly recommend them and utilize them again in the future.

John C. - June | 2018

Adam Slack was great to work with and very informed. He was able to answer all of my questions and walked me through the loan process. Great experience with you guys and best of luck to you.

Jesse B. - May | 2016

Adam and his staff are very good. One piece of feedback I would provide is to be sure to give the customer time to review documents. I was sent a document and followed by another email about an hour later asking if I was done reviewing the document. People have jobs and other responsibilities throughout the day, a.k.a. relax and give them a chance to get to their email.

Michael W. | May 2018

Being 500 miles away and trying to do a loan process can be a little tricky, but you guys kept us in the loop and everything worked out great, and we love Wilmington. Thanks much!!!!

Dennis & Joan M. | May 2018

Service was impeccable. Adam Slack's team was extremely proficient and professional in every manner possible.

David B.

I started working with Adam Slack end of October and in just a few days we had our pre-approval letter. Adam was efficient and always knowledgeable of everything. I had dealt with so many lenders before and no one like Adam. His professionalism and understanding were amazing. We got our VA loan with no money down, no closing cost to pay, and a great interest rate. His team was also great to work with. Kim Thornlow was always quick to respond to my emails and answer any questions. I've heard...

Vanessa D.H. | January 2018

I enjoyed working with Guaranteed Rate for the purchase of my first home. We worked directly with Adam Slack who was very helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. He contacted us after hours when we needed to put in an offer on a home with a deadline (which was much appreciated) and worked diligently to help us close quickly. He also answered all my questions (and I had a lot!) throughout the entire process. The process was easy and everything can be handled online -- which is a huge time saver!...

Caitlin M.

Adam Slack and his team were exceptional throughout the entire loan process. The online documentation was very convenient, while still being thorough. Adam was very knowledgeable and he, and his team, were available to help whenever we needed any questions answered or any advice.

Sean D. - Leland, NC | AUG 2016

I was working a very busy and erratic schedule throughout the entire process and Adam Slack did a terrific job of keeping me updated on things as they came up. He was on top of things the entire time which led to a quick and easy close.

Patrick N.- Wilmington,NC | MAY 2016

Second time I have obtained my mortgage loan from Guaranteed Rate. Adam Slack is great to work with and the entire team is professional, friendly and helpful. Thanks so much!

Deborah H.- Wilmington, NC | MAY 2016

This is the second time I have used Guaranteed Rate. The first time it was because they were suggested by our realtor. This time I chose to use them on my own because I needed a pre-qual letter fast and I was getting a mortgage on an additional home so I knew it could be tricky. They were so incredibly fast and easy to work with that it made this a breeze. In fact, at my closing both my realtor and the closing attorney praised Guaranteed Rate and Adam Slack for being so easy to work with and...

Kelly N. - Goldsboro, NC | APR 2016

Adam and Audra were amazing to work with. They were both very responsive to any questions or concerns I had. I feel they both went above and beyond to help make the loan process go as smoothly as possible. My experience overall was great. Adam and Audra made the process as easy as possible. Anytime I had any concerns or questions they were very quick to respond and help. Guaranteed Rate has the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with.

Kristyn H. – Leland, NC | May. 2015

Enrique F. - 2/2015

Adam Slack is the most proficient person I have had the pleasure of working with. Every question posed to him was answered almost immediately in every area. He helps one to feel secure and well informed. My husband Tim and I are very pleased with your company thus far and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a loan. I think in closing, it's the customer service that made the difference.

Elaine S. -- North Chesterfield, VA 5/7/2014

Brad O. -- Wilmington, NC 7/22/2014

“As a realtor I have worked with many of the top lenders through my clients. But when it came time to choose a lender for my personal home loan there was only one choice for me. Guaranteed Rate and specifically Adam Slack in Wilmington, NC. He was on the ball and got me approved and closed in 3 weeks. It seemed effortless to me but I know there were many people working behind the scenes to make it happen. My favorite thing about Guaranteed Rate is the online guide where I can watch the...

Cathi A., Realtor – Wilmington, NC -- 5/2014

If we were to start this process over again, we would without a doubt still choose Guaranteed Rate as our mortgage broker firm, while gladly recommending Adam Slack and his services to friends and family.

Richard and Brittany -- Charlotte, NC -- 9/2011

"When we were looking into refinancing Adam called me with information and wasn't at all pushy like some of the other companies who also contacted me. We were very happy with his service and for being thorough answering all our questions. He explained everything very clearly. All the charges are just as they were presented. It was a pleasure doing business with Adam and Guaranteed Rate. We would go to Adam again for a mortgage. I recommended Adam to my daughter for her refinance."

Tim and Sue C. -- Burlington, NC. - 9/2011

Adam has shown us that obtaining a home can be easier than ever. He is both positive and truthful. Adam has given me ideas I would not have thought of doing. He knows the business and is friendly and respectful which is refreshing. I look forward to doing business with Adam.

Jeannie F. - 9/2014

Louise B. -- Owings Mills, MD. --

"We really appreciated the service from Adam during the recent refinancing of our mortgage. We had tried our then-existing mortgagee and several banks, to no avail. No one seemed willing to "dig a little deeper" to find a way to help us. Adam was recommended to us by someone else who was in the mortgage business! His follow-up was prompt and his attitude was positive. He was at all times professional, clear, and undaunted if any problem arose. He had the know-how in the business to make it...

Phil and Trish E. -- Wilmington, NC -- 9/2011

"We had our reservations about using a firm that was not local but they were short lived, due to the attention, commitment, and dedication that Adam showed us. Our questions and concerns were immediately addressed and the level of communication they provided to us was world class on all levels. I constantly found myself in communication with Adam beyond "bankers hours". I can't say enough good things about Adam and the team. The information obtained from Adam was explained clearly, in a manner...

"Two years ago after a sticky divorce primarily due to financial matters that nearly left me bankrupt after having perfect credit all my life. It has been a couple of very rough years for me trying to bring my credit back to what it once was. I desperately needed to refinance, but it was continually denied due to credit woes. Adam was recommended to me by a coworker. After a quick credit review, I had hope. Adam continued to work diligently on my behalf. Adam went beyond the call of duty and...

Angie D. -- Greensboro, NC. -- 10/2011

Adam interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
I have an extremely wide variety of customers including first time home buyers, retirees purchasing their dream vacation home or second home, and even investors looking to maximize their return on investment through income producing rental properties. I don\'t just offer purchase loans as many of my customers are refinancing now in order to take advantage of the historically low interest rates. Furthermore, I am well versed in the guidelines of all of the well known and little known mortgage products in order to find my customers the very best fit for their needs. I offer the VA Interest Rate Reduction Loan (VA IRRRL), FHA Streamline, USDA, Conventional JUMBO, Fannie Mae\'s Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP 2.0), and Freddie Mac\'s version of the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP 2.0).
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
I have been a licensed loan officer since 2008. I have my clients and Realtor relationships to thank for being awarded the Top 1% Originator award and a President's Club recipient for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
What are the pros and cons of a fixed rate mortgage versus an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)?
This is a hot topic in today's lending environment and I often discuss the differences between a fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgage with my clients. Usually, an adjustable rate mortgage will have a period of time where the rate is fixed, after which, the rate will become variable and subject to change. Generally, the shorter the fixed in period of the ARM, the lower the rate will be. The question on whether to get into a fixed rate mortgage or an adjustable rate mortgage often depends on how long you intend on staying in the home. If you do not intend to stay in the home for over 5 years it may be wise to consider the benefits the lower payment the adjustable rate mortgage can provide. This is usually very popular with the military where assignments and military stations at different bases change periodically. It is important to check the floor rate, adjustment margin, yearly adjustment cap, and the index where the mortgage is calculated from. An adjustable rate mortgage can serve as very beneficial for certain customers in certain circumstances, however, interest rates for fixed rate mortgages have never been lower. I always discuss the pros and cons of both the fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgage with my clients.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
I always try to set the right expectations up front with my clients. The lending environment has gone through some drastic changes over the past few years and things continue to change. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are the two Government Sponsored Entities (GSE's) that put forth underwriting guidelines for mortgages in the United States. Because of recent changes there will be items required that were never required when someone may have purchased their last house or refinanced several years ago. I try to explain that certain items are required so mortgages are "investment grade" and we do not make the same mistake twice with the mortgage meltdown that took place several years ago. That being said, it's fairly easy to get a mortgage even by today's standards. The difference is, the customer has to put forth a little work up front and be thorough and detailed in compiling the list of items needed to process the refinance or purchase transaction. If the work is done up front and most importantly, in a timely manner, the process will go smoothly and we will take it from there!
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I am from the Charlotte, North Carolina area and moved to Wilmington, North Carolina to attend the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Cameron School of Business with a Bachelor's in Finance and Business Administration. I am still actively involved with my fraternity Chi Phi. I stayed in the Wilmington area after college and worked for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage directly after graduating. Shortly after leaving Wells Fargo I joined the Guaranteed Rate team! I love the Wilmington area which lets me pursue my passions of wakeboarding, deep sea fishing, and surfing!
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
When I'm not working I love to exercise, play tennis, surf, wakeboard and go deep sea fishing.
