John Noldan and his team did a great job servicing me on my refinance. I have been recommending John and his team to my clients for years now, and to actually be the client, I was thrilled and not surprised at the excellent service they provided.

Lucy M. | July 2018

The Guaranteed Rate team I worked with was amazing! They were courteous, polite, very prompt with responses, and answered all my questions. We had some glitches with insurance and the condo association and they went above and beyond to assure all matters were in order. I would definitely recommend them!

John Noldan and his team were exceptional during the process. I switched from another bank to John Noldan and it was a quick and efficient process. We had a fairly short timeframe and they did an amazing job of making sure all tasks were done and in the required timeframe. They followed up with me and communicated very well. Thanks very much!

We used GR for a sale and two buys with in 3 months. They were amazing! Every person involved, in every step of the way, was patient, kind, courteous, knowledgeable.

John Noldan was wonderful to work with. He and the team made everything very easy for us. Everything went fast, smooth, and perfectly.

Adam K. -- Bartlett, IL 4/14/2014

"Every question was answered quickly and simply so we could keep the process moving forward. For example, we need to know how much money to bring to closing a few days before the HUD GFI was ready. John's team (Riley in particular) got us a number that was within $400 of the actual number so we did not take more money our of our bank then needed to close. That's good business. Rates and what you get for the loan cost and fees is far superior to a bank. This is our 5th loan-home purchase since...

Zillow -- Algonquin, IL. -- 10/ 2013

John and his team were amazing! They worked hard to navigate our unique circumstances to make the loan and purchase happen. We would not have been able to close without them. We love our new home and would recommend John Noldan and his team in a heart beat.

Kimberly P.-- Zillow -- Chicago, IL. -- 10 / 2013

Due to an unresponsive opposing realtor, we were up against a logistical deadline for closing. It was really on the fringe of possibility, given the usual amount of time it takes to complete a closing. But with the clock ticking and my family on the way to Illinois from our closing in Florida, John marshaled his team too, in less than a week, masterfully arrange and complete the closing. He was equal parts taskmaster and cheerleader, encouraging and making it his—and the team's—mission to...

Steven A. -- Zillow -- Chicago, IL-- 10/ 2013

"John Noldan is the perfect example of what a mortgage banker should truly be. He was professional, responsive and had a team of individuals that worked with him to close an complicated refinance. He possessed in-depth knowledge of the lending industry that he used to tiptoe around and through some very difficult issues in my refinance. The closing for my home was absolutely seamless. He is the only mortgage banker that I will ever use from this point forward."

James C.,-- Zillow -- Chicago, IL. -- 10/ 2013

"John came highly recommended by our real estate agent Anthony Spallone at Remax Masters in Morton Grove, IL. We chose to get our mortgage through John instead of our bank because he assured us from the very beginning that our loan would close on time. We did our part in immediately providing all the necessary documentation that he needed. He and his team were exceptionally responsive to all of our questions and concerns and extremely pleasant to work with. Our loan process and closing could...

Josh P. -- Des Plaines, IL -- 10/ 2013

"I have known John for 15 years. He started as a mentor and a role model for a young athlete. As I began my career he grew into a professional colleague, and someone who's trust was relied upon in any situation that revolved around the housing market in general. When it became time to purchase my first home, I could not think of anyone other than John who I could trust with this very delicate, and painstaking process. John and his staff made the mortgage acquisition process easy,...

Josh P. -- Chicago,IL. -- 10/ 2013

"We used John to purchase our new home. He was extremely helpful from the very beginning. We wanted to look at a house on a Sunday that required proof of ability to buy and John was able to get us the document we needed the very same day. Our closing was smooth with no surprises. I would recommend using him for all of your real estate needs."

Greg G. -- Elmhurst, IL. -- 10/ 2013

"We bought our first home with a loan through John and his team. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anyone needing a home loan. While we were a bit new to the process, this was our first home, they took the time to guide us through the steps of the process and gave us lots of options and explained all of them. They also made themselves available anytime we needed them (24/7 - day, night, weekends). An overall EXCELLENT experience working with John and his...

Keith L. -- Chicago, IL -- 10/ 2013

"The whole process went really well. In fact one of my closest friends is a VP at a bank and he even commented how smooth and appropriate the whole loan process was at Guaranteed Rate. I highly recommend John because his support and guidance made all the difference and he is a fabulous human being, seriously!"

Amit D. -- Chicago, IL. -- 9/ 2013

John interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I have been in the mortgage business for 14 years. After graduating from Benedictine University with a degree in political science, I worked in a couple other arenas before gravitating towards the business of finance. The mortgage business was a natural fit almost immediately. I liked the idea of helping people navigate such an important financial decision in their lives. I developed relationships with Realtors, attorneys and financial planners and those relationships have been the cornerstone of my business. I view my job as that of a trusted financial adviser.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
When I started in the mortgage business it was sort of the Wild West. There were a lot of people working as loan officers that didn’t have experience and probably shouldn’t have been in the business. With the regulations and guidelines currently in place, the customer is much more served and the overall mortgage experience is much more professional.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
I think customers find the quantity of documentation that they have to gather and navigate somewhat cumbersome. We mitigate that by asking them to put us in touch with accountants, who often times have all of their required documents and as long as we have the customer’s permission, they will work with us to provide everything we need.
Are you active in any local associations or community groups, and at what level? What goals and/or success have you helped these groups achieve?
I sit on the Board of Directors of Catholic Charities, an organization that is near and dear to my heart. I also am very involved in the community of Elmhurst and I am excited to be opening a new Guaranteed Rate branch there in March.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I’m a bit of an adventure or thrill seeker. I have numerous (successful) skydiving jumps, I have raced cars, swum with sharks and several other really fun life adventures.
