From start to finish your team made the loan process anxiety free!

Patricia J. | August 2018

Dean Vlamis and Jeremy were incredibly responsive and helpful! This was a long process from beginning to end with many pre approval letters. But once we found our house, we closed in 3 weeks! Guaranteed Rate was so easy to work with! Thank you!

Akram A. - July | 2018

Dean and his team did a great job and I felt the level and type of communication (mostly electronic) made the process easy.

Joshua W. | June 2018

Dean Vlamis and his whole team made our home purchase process a breeze. They explained the whole process every step of the way and were there to answer all our questions. We would definitely use them again.

Jamie P. - April | 2018

Dean and his team were great. They kept us abreast of everything we needed to provide and gave us a great feeling throughout the entire process. They're communicative and worked hard to allay any of our concerns throughout the process. If I could go back and choose a different lender, I wouldn't.

Andrew R. - Evanston, IL | SEP 2017

From the beginning to the end of the application, Dean Vlamis, on top of the agenda and very careful to hit our scheduled closing date since he knew we were tied to a no-contingency purchase. The most professional team I've ever worked with, including the DocuSign process which made document review simple and quick. Thanks again. I am a very happy new home owner.

MILAN M - Chicago, IL | Feb. 2016

Jeremy was great. We had a few challenges during a closing he handled them with ease and kept things moving along smoothly. I would recommend guaranteed rate to anyone who is looking to have it easy, smooth closing process.

Dean Vlamis is great!

Raymond A. – Chicago, IL | Sep. 2015

Dean checked in and provided assistance during the closing, while we were waiting for the underwriters to re-review everything again (why, so last minute?). I appreciate his availability through the entire process as well.

Jason S.– Chicago, IL | JULY 2015

I trust Dean Vlamis and the team made this very easy. I'm pleased with the result.

Jennifer D. – Oak Park, IL | Jan. 2015

I'm going to recommend Dean and the team at Guaranteed Rate to anyone I know! I've worked with 4 other lenders in Chicago and out of state and had horrible experiences with each one, but with Guaranteed Rate all of my questions were answered, All of the fees were disclosed and there were no surprises, last minute requests for information, or changes to the loan. working with guaranteed rate was amazing! The whole team at Guaranteed Rate was a pleasure to work with.

Benjamin S. -- Chicago, IL | Nov. 2014

About Dean

Dean Vlamis, Vice President of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate, has been originating mortgages for over 16 years and has consistently ranked as one of the Top 200 Mortgage Originators in America.

After leaving the trading floor in 2000, Dean sought to find a job that would challenge him and would allow him to use his strong work ethic to help grow his business. After finding his niche in mortgage lending, and after going through an overwhelming mortgage experience himself, Dean made it his goal to keep clients informed about the mortgage process while helping them purchase their perfect home.

By providing honest and responsible advice to clients, Dean and his team pride themselves on delivering a smooth mortgage experience to every client. What is Dean’s advice for new or first time home buyers? “Make sure you are comfortable with the payment and make sure you are working with an expert in the business. The industry has changed and the mortgage process can be tedious. It is important that you work with someone who will explain everything to you. I make it a point to make sure all my clients are informed throughout the process.”

When Dean is not originating loans, you can find him spending time with his wife, Neena and three kids, Michael, Kosta and Eleni. “They are the most rewarding part of my life”.
