Guaranteed rate is phenomenal, my A-Team was perfect. They kept me on top of what needed to be done. We worked perfectly together, and the timing was great. Digital signature is the best, no excessive paper work, and it's all done instantly from anywhere. It's the best ever.

Dan Cornell was very honest and informative throughout the process, he answered all of my questions and answered the phone every time I called. The online form submission saved me and my wife TONS of time and made the process go very smooth. We were able to close 4 days early on an already short 30 day closing time thanks to the online forms and signing.

– Closed Purchase Client, Nov. 2015

Dan is a very professional, straight shooter, no nonsense guy. He explained everything to me in detail. I've had numerous questions in regards to my refinance. He gave me his personal number, and answered all of my questions while he was on vacation. Dan got us a great rate, saved us almost $200 on our monthly payment, and started our escrow up the correct way with a nice cushion. It's a nice piece of mind that our payments will not go up since Dan set it up correctly. I can honestly say, and I...

Dan was wonderful to work with while we were purchasing our home in Michigan. He is an expert in his field and guided us through to our loan closing without a single snag. We will definitely call him again for any future home loan needs and recommend him without hesitation.

Dan interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
19 years. I won several revenue and volume production awards at Allied Home Mortgage
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
I have seen many changes in the mortgage business, some good and some bad. I would expect the mortgage business to keep tightening its guidelines.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Most of the mortgage process is front loaded. The better job the borrower can do with supplying documentation in the beginning the smoother the process.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Ann Arbor, MI and attended Pioneer High School in 1989.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I road my bicycle from GA to Key West, Florida in a tribute to my father.
