Sam A. 7/29/2013

"Amber was great in reaching out and making sure my questions were answered. I needed more explanations initially on what the documents were, like what they meant and everyone was great talking me through the process. I loved how quick the process was and that they were available to answer questions whenever I needed without having to deal with long lags in time before getting an answer."

Veronica D. -- Chicago, IL. --- 9/24/2013

"Amber was outstanding--she was attentive, honest and knowledgeable--I loved being treated like a client! Once I was able to get all the documents in--we closed very quickly and quite smoothly! Wonderful experience!"

Barbara A. -- Downers Grove, IL. -- 10/14/2013

"Guaranteed Rate was recommended by several people on some of the Real Estate Investment online groups I frequent. I was reluctant to go with non-local lender, but GR gave me far better rates, and ultimately better service, than local brokers I had dealt with previously. Great Service!"

Jeffery H. -- Pelham, NH. -- 11/2013

“I worked with Amber Arwine at Guaranteed Rate. As a first time home buyer let me just say I was pretty much clueless on how to go about making my dream home happen. Amber took me through the process and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. In a situation where it was hard to tell who was looking out for my best interests, Amber never failed to impress me with how she took what I wanted and made it happen. She was great at assessing the situation and finding solutions to problems before...

Adam S. – Chicago, IL – 2/2014

Amber was very thorough and professional.

Koshan A. - January, 2014

Amber was honest and trustworthy. She was also well prepared and an excellent communicator!

Paul M. -- Chicago, IL 7/17/2014

Amber Arwine did an outstanding job and I couldn't be happier with her services. She was on point with everything during the loan process and provided me all the information I needed. I was amazed about how fast she would respond to emails. Even my Realtor was impressed. In addition, her whole team did a great job as well. I honestly couldn't be happier with the outcome.I have referred a couple people at work already.

Mathew B. -- Lavernia, TX 10/28/2014

Amber is unbelievably knowledgeable about loan programs, and when my appraisal came in lower than expected she still managed to get me the same deal and save me money. I am still ecstatic at the rate/program I received.

Amber interview Q&A

What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
I would advise new homebuyers to make sure they are informed. It is one of the largest purchases that we make in our lives. It's also a good idea to establish a budget before starting to look at homes. This way you will know what you can comfortably afford. Often you can qualify for more home than you will feel comforable buying. Knowing and sticking to the budgeted amount will help you in the long run.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Today's mortgage underwriting process is all about documentation. Keeping this in mind, sending in all the requested documentation on time can make the process go smoother.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love live music. Mostly local artists and venues. I'm open to any genre, as long as they're good.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Along with being a mortgage loan originator, I love to travel. I have traveled all over the US and many countries in Europe and Latin America.
