I am not sure IF it's Guarantee Rate that would bring me back or the Loan Officer's. It's the people not the company name that brought me here. If you have great credit and can afford a home - the rate & everything else can be attained via many companies. Dan Rock & team are excellent - loan approval and closing when very smooth.

At the end of the process, we had the exact loan we were expecting at the beginning.

Hey check out the amazing review from Shannon about Daniel! “I used Guaranteed Rate when I purchased my condo back in 2006. As a first time buyer I had no idea how the process worked.

Dan interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
18 years. I was inspired to get in the mortgage industry after watching my brother in law lead a successful career in the same field. I love helping first time home buyers get into their first home and watching their lives grow.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
My advice to first time buyers would be to get pre-approved early...so we can put you on the right path and make the process easy and painless.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
The key to a smooth mortgage process is to get pre-approved in advance of finding a home. Discussing your loan options early to determine if you need to apply for a FHA loan or a conventional loan, if a fixed rate or an ARM is suitable for your situation. You really need to deal with a local mortgage professional rather than search online and run numbers on a mortgage calculator. If in doubt consult your mortgage professional first...large deposits or transfers between accounts should be avoided. Job changes, applying for new credit and large purchases should be avoided as well.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I grew up in Wheaton and am one of five children, my parents still live in Wheaton and I am always in the area. I went to Glenbard South High School and attended Indiana University for my undergraduate degree. I now live in Plainfield and enjoy watching my children play baseball, soccer, hockey, and swimming.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Along with being a mortgage professional, I like to travel and see new places. I always like to try new things zip lines, gliders, back packing through Europe, hiked a volcano, swam with dophins and sting rays, salmon fishing in Alaska...always looking for the next challenge!
