Jennifer C. - Littleton, CO | APR 2016

Chad and his team made it so easy and efficient especially since we were under a very strict 30 day closing deadline for the house. The team was also very prompt with communication whether it was in regards to a question we had, letting us know what documents/items were still outstanding, or simply to provide status updates and always responded within 24 hours, usually within just a few hours even on weekends. We definitely appreciate all of their help and have already recommended them to a few...

Chad Drachenberg is experienced, intelligent, extremely professional, very knowledgeable, and an outstanding individual. I found it an outstanding experience because Chad kept me updated, informed and communicated with me on a regular basis. The mortgage process is time consuming and a headache to be sure... but Chad was the calming influence throughout this experience. He is truly a diamond in the rough.

Chad was wonderful and very easy to work with. He made it simple and had a helpful crew to work with as well. With all of their help, I was able to get the loan process completed before the closing. Everyone was very helpful in letting me know exactly what I needed to provide and when they needed it. They were very easy to work with and they worked fast on everything.

Robert B. -- Aurora, CO 3/4/2014

Chad did a great job following up with me at every step and made sure I was on track with my document requirements. He took the time to explain the final loan document and the charges were explained in a clear and concise way. The closing went very smoothly and Chad was there through the entire process.

Jena R. -- Denver, CO 2/17/2014

Chad was extremely helpful and nice. I wouldn't think twice about recommending him to family and friends. The process was very smooth, I worked with an extremely helpful group of people with personalities. Not your typical robot bank. Overall the best group of people I have ever dealt with in the whole loan application process.

Peter F. -- Lakewood, CO, 2/18/2014

“I can be a pain in the neck if I experience anything other than quality, timely service when applying for a simple home loan. Fortunately, this is EXACTLY what was provided to me by Chad Drachenberg, Kelly Weigel and Lisa Anderson. The loan sailed through your all departments, as expected, and was priced very efficiently as well. It goes without saying that my future financing needs will go to Chad and his team, as well as all referral opportunities. This was the easiest, most professional and...

Angela G. -- Denver Co, -- 03/2013

Our goal was to get the best possible interest rates and lowest closing costs. Chad Drachenberg was successful doing both and closed our loan without any issues. Thanks again Chad, we will definitely recommend you to anyone in search of a loan!

I've worked with Chad Drachenburg twice before and have always been very impressed. The process moved quickly and smoothly. I already have recommended Chad and Guaranteed Rate on several occasions. I will continue to do so. The agent we worked with from First American Title told us he feels Guaranteed Rate is the best in the business and he's never had a single problem.

About Chad

Chad Drachenberg grew up in Cedar Falls, Iowa and graduated from Minnesota State University in Mankato. He then moved to Colorado, eventually married his love and now dotes on his two young daughters. Outside the office, depending on the season, he rides and falls off snowboards or motorcycles.

During Chad's years in the mortgage industry, he has learned there is no such thing as "typical" when it comes to his customers. Every client is unique and has different financial needs and questions. Chad recommends to new or first time homebuyers to try to get at least a 5% down payment on a home. He likes to make sure his clients understand how important their credit history is and to keep in touch with questions in the future.

Chad believes gathering the required documentation is the most challenging part of the home loan process for his clients. He has found borrowers have the best experience when the work hard on providing everything in the beginning and in a timely manner.
