Doug was recommended to us, and we have worked with him to purchase two homes. When purchasing our current home, Doug saved us nearly $10,000 off the bat when compared with another lender. He was able to complete the transaction quickly, as we had unusually tight deadlines. Also, on a personal level, Doug is very friendly, professional, and keeps your best interests in mind.

“Although, there was an mistake made early on, Doug and his team worked very hard to give us the best loan possible. I would work with Doug McGhee again as he was helpful, efficient, very responsive via phone and email and a real problem solver. This was very convenient as an online app and I could sign electronically and reference as needed. Seamless! I will definitely be referring Doug McGhee and Guaranteed Rate to others.”

Every time he has worked in my best interest and made the process comfortable and expedient. I can't say enough good things about all the people I worked with at Guaranteed Rate.

Hey check out the amazing review from Keith about Doug! “Huge thank you to Doug McGhee and the Guaranteed Rate team that supported us! You all were amazingly efficient, responsive, helpful and professional as we refinanced our property. Even working with you from afar at our home in Texas, things could not have gone more smoothly! We will always come back to Doug for our Colorado mortgage needs, and wish all our financial interactions could be handled so well. Thanks again...

Thank you very much for what has been in my experience the most efficient and straightforward loan approval I have had. It is extremely difficult to find a lender that can deliver fully and go above and beyond in their pre-approval process these days and you guys exceed ALL expectations!

Doug interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have 22 years of mortgage experience. I was a co-owner of a mortgage company for 11 years and enjoyed success at the executive level with national mortgage firms as well. My interest and inspiration stems from a history of finance and marketing as well as construction and real estate management.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
I have worked with several clients who have contacted me after being declined or turned down by other mortgage companies. There is ALWAYS a way to structure a loan and I see what is possible rather than what is not possible. Even if there are challenges today, there is a path that I help my clients see to creating home ownership at some point in the future. I recently received confirmation of this when I client said, “Thanks again for all of your help and diligence on working with us through the multitude of loan revisions. When other brokers gave up, you were able to deliver and it's greatly appreciated.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
The process for buying a home or refinancing a mortgage continues to evolve and transform. What was normal 3-5 years ago has changed significantly. The guidelines today ensure that mortgage lenders are taking responsibility for quality loans and communicating this to my clients is one of the most important aspects of the application process. Part of my job is to communicate how to ensure a graceful transaction and explain why the industry requires the documentation typically requested.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I enjoy a unique life of other passions and interest outside of the mortgage industry. In addition to being a master's level cyclist and endurance athlete, I am a life coach and finishing my first book on a new paradigm for men and self-leadership in the 21st century.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I love to cook and prepare healthy meals to be enjoyed with wine and good friends.
