Using Guaranteed Rate was awesome! Lyle MacLennan is the ultimate professional. He never lies or discourages you, but rather works with you to conquer and problem that might arise. I believe that the results were tremendous and would never use anyone but Lyle and Guaranteed Rate. I think of Lyle as a friend, because he went above and beyond to help me refinance, and this bettered my life and maybe saved my house. If everyone acted as proficient and professional, the world would be a better...

I have already forwarded the name along to family. I was more than happy with the experience and will continue to recommend. I thought one of the best parts was the ease of doing most of it through email and the to-do list was incredibly simple. Drag and drop is always easy.

Keith M. - 3/30/16

My purchase closing took place exactly on time under difficult conditions. I greatly appreciated the effort, especially since I was both away from home and mostly out of state during the entire application process. Thanks for making this happen.

Joe - 3/17/16

After working with several other lenders then dealing with Guaranteed Rate and especially Lyle MacLennan, the process was smooth and they made sure things were taken care of. Would highly recommend them again in the future and to anyone else.

Lyle took his time to explain every detail of the process and was there every time I had questions. Lyle and his team were excellent!

About Lyle

I began in the real estate field right out of college. At first it was commercial real estate sales and financing. Fifteen years later I added residential mortgage specialization. Today I'm lucky to work in both arenas successfully and my clients value my depth of experience and knowledge. Being their trusted advisor is my reward.

For me, finding the creative financial solution, which leads to the best and most successful outcome (where others cannot) is one of the most satisfying parts of my job. It separates me from my competition and helps build a strong, loyal following of happy clients.

My team is wonderful. Together we keep enhancing our capabilities and growing our menu of services - including representing corporate accounts and non-profit entities nationwide.

I'm in the people business and I love being helpful and strategic while growing my network of referral partners (realtors, developers, financial professionals and corporate clients).

Trinity University in San Antonio, TX was a great college experience. My finance and economics degree helped launched me right into the financial services industry - it's been a wonderful ride!

Living at the beach and wearing flip flops to the office in the summer keeps it relaxed for me. It's been a wonderful joy to raise a daughter and build strong relationships in my community that make my life very fulfilling. Narragansett, Rhode Island is truly a beautiful place.

I hope to be helpful and have fun with everyone I'm honored to assist!

Lyle interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical client has a loan amount between 300k - 3M. They need professional excellence and strategy to optimize their purchase or refinance and often have unique complexities that I am able to handle perfectly. I work very well with professional property investors and clients with complex income structures. I spend the time up-front getting the facts and goals clear. Then execute best game plan.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
What if you're self-employed but have an income loss in last two years? How do you get a mortgage? Or, what if you want to do a lease-to-own purchase but need to know how to structure so it is accepted at underwriting? I have closed these types of transactions and many others requiring technical expertise. It's why clients seek me out and refer me!
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
I'm your best resource. Please be sure to connect in advance with me before shopping for a home. I'll help you with all important items needed up-front so it is clear and easy once you begin. Then you can shop with total confidence!
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Being my client's trusted advisor and seeing their smiles at the end. More smiles, please :)
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I read way too much about science/medicine and I'm completely fascinated by the brain and behavioral science.
