Ari and Max are amazing! They delivered more than we expected in term of service and interest rate. We did not fully understand the mechanics of loan processing, those guys have subsequently shown tremendous patience, and going over stuff with us as often as we felt was necessary. In the end, we got the loan and were able to get a better interest rate than expected. We would encourage anybody seriously looking to get a mortgage to see Ari and Max of Guaranteed Rate before talking to any Bank or...

Ari was awesome. His team (Max and Jamelia) were great. Overall, very positive experience and I would use them again for any/all future mortgage needs!

Benjamin A. - Valley Village, CA | Jan. 2016

I wanted to thank you all for this absolutely flawless transaction. I’ll admit that I had some concerns with the buyer using an out-of-state lender especially with all of the new TRID processes. When coupled with a buyer who’s bought a lot of properties but didn’t understand the mortgage process, this seemed a recipe for disaster. You folks exceeded any expectation I could have had and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any future client, nor would I ever hesitate to advise a seller...

"Everything about this process, which has often been portrayed as daunting, was as simple and efficient as can be. Mr. Ari Brody was always involved in making sure that I understood what was expected of me, while at the same time ensuring the bank delivered on their end. I would highly recommend Mr. Ari Brody and Guaranteed Rate."

D. Sussman

Your 1, 2, 3, 4 process is an understatement. It's more like 1-2-3! . What I found most impressive is how everyone, including you, always responded to my inquiries and questions within 24 hours, if not sooner. I will most definitely refer you to friends and family as I am confident that they will receive the same courteous and professional service that I did. Thank you again for helping me accomplish my financial goal with this property.

Ari interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I started in the mortgage business back in 2001. I was selling Cutco knives and impressed one of my clients so much he offered me a job as a processor. I grew to love the art of the mortgage, helping a client buy a home, structuring the deal. Many of my friends have bought their first homes over the past several years and it was with great satisfaction that I was able to help them out.
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
I have been in the mortgage business for 14+ years now. I have been ranked in the top 1% every year since 2013.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
It's extremely important to make sure you are working with someone you are comfortable with, you have confidence in, and who was recommended.
What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
People frequently assume that because they have money in the bank, or they have excellent credit, or they are now making money that they should be eligible for a mortgage. The reality is that you need all the pieces in the puzzle to complete the transaction.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Monsey, NY. I went to school in Edison, NJ and then college in Ramapo and then Touro in Brooklyn, NY. I was married and moved to Brooklyn 9 years ago. I have 3 children and I'm on the board of my Synagogue. My favorite "hobbies" are golfing and working. I'm admittedly a work-a-holic and frequently working until very late at night. I'm available to help my clients at any time of day or night.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I love playing golf and I play when ever I can manage to squeeze it in.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I have a diverse expertise in the industry. I was in operations for many years so I understand the back end of the business as well sales end. This unique insight helps me structure deals so that they close quickly and efficiently.
