Matt Faranda is amazing. From first 'hey, should we think about refi' to the end of close, he's been amazingly helpful and responsive. On such an important financial decision, we had an amazing partner in Matt and Guaranteed Rate.

About Matthew

Hello my name is Matthew Faranda - I have been originating mortgages for the past 19 years, I have worked as a direct lender, mortgage broker and a Loan Officer for the large banks. I enjoy working with clients to achieve their home ownership goals. Outside of work I am married for 19 year to my wife Susan and we have 4 children ages 15,13, 10 & 6 which keeps us busy! I assist in the coaching of my sons soccer team and also extremely involved with my 3 daughters events. If time permits outside of work and running around my 4 kids my enjoyment comes from playing golf.

Matthew interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
After speaking with them about their profiles I ask and then sit back and listen to their goals and future plans to see which options would best suit them.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
Listen to your loan officer as they will guide you in the right direction. When asked to provide information to provide it in a timely manner as to not delay things.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Attending my closings and seeing the enjoyment/excitement of a client who finally gets the keys handed to them, Then hearing from another client whom the prior one referred and knowing that I did a good job and made a positive impact on someones life.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
My family comes first, I try to attend all events of my children to show my support of them. Golf is my passion outside of work and family.
