Linda was great and very responsive from the beginning to the end.

Daniel K. | May 2018

I am not one to typically give all the highest marks on a survey. I am generally hyper critical. I just can't justify giving anything less. This loan team was awesome and I would recommend someone in a heartbeat.

Linda Nguyen and her team were awesome. She was very attentive and patient with us since this was the first time we were going through the home loan process. She looked out for our best interest and we trusted in her advice. Throughout the entire process, her and her team kept us well-informed of the loan status. Our questions were answered very quickly, even on the weekends! We are very happy with the customer service that Linda and her team provided. THANK YOU!

Linda help me review an offer I received from a competitor, but ultimately was able to provide a much better offer. She handled the process well and ensured the loan moved along as needed to fund on time. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!

Linda Nguyen and Christie Vo were great to work with. I appreciate their persistence and help with this transaction.

Thuy T. | April 2018

Linda Nguyen and her technical team of Katie Van and Amy Rogers are just excellent. We worked through the process together with them to achieve success. She will answer the phone and respond whenever needed (even at night!) and we felt she was our advocate and ally. I would recommend this financing team to others.

Ed C. - Port Ludlow, WA | Mar 2018

Linda was by far the best loan agent I have worked with. She monitored the rate for me early on and helped me locked the rate before the recent rate hike. If not for her, I would have missed the opportunity to refinance. In addition, the time to close was the shortest from the purchase and refinance I have had before. I would like to thank Linda and her team for all that.

Hector C.- Fremont, CA | Mar 2018

My L.O. was very professional. She had solutions for every issue that came up! She returned calls promptly and had a good team around her. I would highly recommend her.

Anthony S.- Scottsdale, AZ | Feb 2018

My loan officer was amazing! Linda Nguyen was so professional, thorough, and prompt in every aspect and every step in the process. Although my appraisal came in too low for what I initially hoped to accomplish with the refi, Linda kept working to provide me with a refi that would achieve almost all of my initial objectives. I so appreciated that. She definitely went more than the extra mile to help me. If I ever decide to refinance my mortgage again, Guaranteed Rate will be my first phone call!

Linda B. - Littleton, CO | FEB. 2018

Overall experience was excellent. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Suresh. D - Dublin, CA | FEB. 2018

Linda and her team were great!

Wendi M. - Denver, CO | FEB 2018

It is a great joy for me to share my experience with my loan process. My first contact with your company was with Linda Nguyen. Words are inadequate to describe the qualities of Linda as well as all team members that I worked with throughout my loan process. Linda and I spoke almost daily and she made me feel I was the only client she was working with, she had a down-to earth approach to answering very complex questions and always took time to make sure I knew what I was signing and submitting....

Jacqueline C. - Roseville, MN | Jan. 2018

Linda and her team were incredibly responsive. Within an hour of asking for a quote, Linda had put together an initial estimate which I approved after looking at several other competitors. Her team then worked late that same day to push through all of the steps necessary to lock in our rate. We closed three weeks later in a successful effort to beat the new tax MID changes by the end of the year. Very highly recommend!!

Cory B. - Seattle, WA | JAN 2018

Linda was just outstanding. She answered all of my questions and managed my expectations on the timeline and the action items. I really enjoyed working with her and her team.

Linda and Christie were awesome. Great communication, very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.

Scott F.- Wa Seca, MN | Jul 2017

Our loan officer, Linda Nguyen was very professional yet personable as well. I was also impressed with how easy and fast we received our appraisal. The actual closing process (with the attorney) was very smooth. The only problem that we encountered was it took several days for the payoff to be transferred to our current lender causing additional late fees to be added to our account. If we would have been advised how long the payoff would take, we could have paid the current month...

Any questions that came up, I was always able to get a hold of her via phone call or email.Everyone that I was in contact with at Guaranteed Rate was friendly and happy to help. I would recommend Linda and Guaranteed Rate to everyone I know.

Ricio R. - Chicago, IL | JUN 2017

Linda Nguyen was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions promptly and was always very nice. I asked a lot of questions and she NEVER seemed bothered by it. Stacy Chadwell the loan processor was a GEM! She was quick and good and she was all over it. It seems the moment she took over the file she guided us through the process and was super sweet and we LOVED working with her and will recommend her to everyone we know who is buying a home. My wife is in the process of getting her RE...

Colin G. - Lakeville, MN | JAN 2017

Linda and the entire team we dealt with for our refinance were exceptional. This was our first 'internet lender' experience and honestly it couldn't have been smoother. We're busy people who much prefer communicating via email which allows us to respond when we have time, rather than by phone or in person. So especially in that aspect, GR was perfect for us. Everyone we communicated with was immediately responsive. The rate we received was substantially better than what we were offered from a...

That was the fastest and easiest refi I've ever had, and I got the rate I wanted. Thanks much!

Eric D. - Valparaiso, IN | DEC 2016

Guaranteed Rate offered me one of the best interest rates and closing cost total. I shopped around between 6 lenders before deciding on Guaranteed Rate. Linda and her team (Nicole, Brian, Amy) were very responsive to my calls and emails. I'm happy that there were no surprises at the end of the process and the numbers I was quoted were on point. Thanks to ya'll, I am a proud new homeowner! Thank you!

Anthony H. - Mesquite, NE | JUL 2016

Working with Linda Nguyen was a terrific experience. Like most prospective buyers, our home buying needs were unique, considering we had a second property that we planned on renting after we closed on our new home. Linda was able to guide us through the entire process, including getting the appropriate documentation, etc. I would recommend her to my friends and family and will certainly use her again.

Quang N. - Fountain Valley, CA | JUL 2016

Edwin A. - Cape Coral, FL | JUN 2016

Our loan officer, Linda Nguyen, was extremely patient and helpful with us, guiding us through the process of uploading all the necessary documents. Because VA was backed up, our locked-in rate was extended, so that we did not incur any increase in rate due to the longer than expected interval to closing.

Lawrence B. - Largo, FL | JUN 2016

Referred my cousin and brother-in-law to you already.

Haitham S. - North Port, FL | JUN 2016

We had a great experience and will definitely use them in the future.

Linda and Michelle were awesome! The process was so much easier than I expected and they explained each step so well. I would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate.

Pamela W. - Hanover, MN | JUN 2016

Linda Nguyen and her team were amazing. From the first time Linda and I spoke on the phone, until the loan closed- she was ON IT. Linda took the time to walk me through the entire process, she would text me reminders and even came to take my yoga class! My husband and I have refinanced our home several times and I can say with total honesty that this was the best experience we've ever had. The entire team was not only extremely easy to work with, but very professional and kind. I would...

Christopher P. -Sarasota, FL | APR 2016

Linda Nguyen was such a pleasure to work with. She made it such a comfortable experience for me going through this whole process and was always on top of things. This was a scary experience for me to begin with as I have not had a mortgage loan for a while and Linda was very encouraging and real easy to talk to.

Michael A. -Des Plaines, IL | MAR 2016

Our loan officer Linda was great explaining the process but most important she cared , I never felt pressured. When we thought we were unable to complete the loan because of loan to value issues and hit a dead end she called me back 2 days later to tell me she found another way to make it work. I had received several calls from other lenders ,but I really felt Linda had our best interest at heart.

Annette S. – Shorewood, IL | Feb 2016

Our loan officer Linda was great at explaining the process, but most importantly she cared. When we thought we were unable to complete the loan and hit a dead end she called me back two days later to tell me she found another way to make it work. I had received several calls from other lenders, but I really felt Linda had our best interest at heart.

Jeffrey B. – Fife, WA | Feb. 2016

I have been in my new home for about 3 weeks now. I love my new home and my neighborhood, every time I come home I realize how lucky I am and how grateful I am to you for making it possible! You told me early on that you believed in me and you would make it happen…and you did. Every time a roadblock came up you found a way to overcome it. I cannot imagine anyone else taking the time and making the effort to go those extra miles like you did. You are right this is a good loan for me and for your...
