Matt Carr was excellent! Very responsive, helpful, and easy to work with. I appreciate him thoroughly answering all of my questions (as a first-time home buyer, I had a lot!) and being available at all hours of the day and on the weekends. I shopped my rate around and got some competitive offers, but because of my awesome working relationship with Matt I wanted to give him the business if he was able to beat the other offers I'd received. He was able to do that and then some! On a scale of 1-10...

Matt Carr and the rest of the staff at Guaranteed Rate where fantastic. They were great to work with, always accessible, professional and very helpful throughout the entire process. My wife and I will certainly recommend Guaranteed Rate to friends and family and hope to use them again in the future.

Ross G. | July 2018

Ronald H. | June 2018

As a first time home buyer the was a great experience. Very helpful staff and quick to respond when I had questions.

Jason S. | June 2018

Matt and his team made every step of the process easy and worry-free. As a first time home buyer and not having the benefit of a face to face meeting, communication was the most important thing for me. Matt and his team were always quick to respond with any questions I had and they were always on track with the closing timelines. My realtor, who has a ton of experience but had not worked with Guaranteed Rate, said the team was fabulous as well. I would 100% use Guaranteed Rate again in the...

My loan officer Matt Carr, really listened to my concerns and was able to me get exactly what I needed. He answered all of my questions promptly and always kept me informed along the way. The rest of the team helped me along the way no matter how many times I called. It was a great experience. Closing was very convenient for us. They came to our house in the evening so my husband and myself did not have to miss work.

Timothy N. -Weatogue, CT | JUL 2016

Matthew Carr was an excellent loan officer to work with. Probably the best I've dealt with. His professionalism and quick response times were vital and ultimately what made this an enjoyable experience. He was so easy to get a hold of which really makes a difference. Some lenders take days and weeks to get a hold of. Also most importantly he did a great job keeping up to date and informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to any of my network of friends and family.

Charles S. – Washington Township, MI | JUN 2016

You have completed 4 loans for me and I am happy to come back next time.

Alexander K. – Sarasota, FL | MAY 2016

From day 1 to closing day, and even after as I just received a gift basket in the mail, Matt Carr has been the utmost professional Loan Officer I have ever worked with. After years of horrid service from other Loan Companies, Matt was able to provide excellent service to me. I will recommend Matt to all of my military friends, and family. Anyone in the market should definitely contact Matt.

Daniel O. – Moreno Valley, CA | MAY 2016

Great appreciation and thanks from both of us, the whole team at Guaranteed Rate was a pleasure to work with. Quick to response and an answer every time we needed one. Thanks again to Matt Carr and his team.

Michael B. – Largo, FL | MAR 2016

Matt and the team did a great job reworking 3 of my loans. These had their share of complications, and Matt helped make this easier. The last loan took more effort on Matt's part then usual as well, and we are thanknful that Matt kept it going and drove it to completion. We now have a great rate on our home and properties. Thank you Matt and your team.

Matthew interview Q&A

What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
The top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process are: 1. You must put down 20% to buy a home: We have products for home buyers in which you can put as little as 3% down and get a great rate. 2. It is very difficult to get a mortgage. Getting a mortgage is difficult only if you are not prepared. Getting a Pre-Approval and realistic expectation of documentation requirements and underwriting criteria makes the whole process much easier. 3. Self Employed borrowers cannot qualify for a mortgage: Not true, it is just as easy for someone who is self-employed to get a mortgage, as it is an employee business.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am fortunate enough to love what I do. I love going to work and when I am not at work I am always thinking about my next deal.
