It was an extreme pleasure to work with Matt Foley. He and his entire team were awesome.

Eleanor S. - Orland Park, IL | JUL 2016

My loan officer, Matt Foley, was outstanding! Matt explained things thoroughly, responded promptly to emails and phone calls and appropriately set my expectations. I was very pleased with my Guaranteed Rate experience.

Darren M. -Palos Heights, IL | MAR 2016

Matt Foley and his team made it fairly easy from a documentation standpoint. Our real estate transaction had a few twists and turns and they moved in lockstep with us each time. When we had to accelerate things, they responded accordingly. They were highly referred by my associates and I will do the same.

Catherine M. - Midway, AR | Dec. 2015

About Matthew

I began my mortgage career in 1994 as a loan originator. I worked for 2 years and left the industry for another opportunity. Rather than finance homes for clients, I chose to build them and worked as a rough framing carpenter for 10 years. As time wore on, the physical nature of home building began taking its toll and an opportunity to return to the world of origination presented itself and I have been working in our industry ever since. As it was while I was building homes, I really enjoy the aspect of working for my clients to get them into the home of their dreams. I attended the University of Illinois and studied Speech/Communications; a skill absolutely essential in working with clients. In the climate nowadays that is much more complex, it's paramount to be able to convey clearly to clients the needs and expectations of an ever changing industry and how it effects them. My wife and I live in the south suburbs with our daughter. I'm a huge sports fan and like many other men my age, love playing golf but I'll never earn a paycheck for my efforts on the links. I'm also an award winning humor writer in my spare time and had a humor column in our local paper for 6 years. I continue to write and eventually will be piecing together my first book.

Matthew interview Q&A

How long have you been in the mortgage business and what inspired you to get into it?
I've been in the business for 14 years and found it rewarding to help people buy their first home.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
As a first time home buyer, my best advice would be to find a mortgage professional first before even looking for a home. Getting pre-approved prior to looking for homes allows you the opportunity to see exactly what you are comfortable with for payment and can put you in a better spot to correct any issues or problems you had that may prohibit or make getting a home more complex.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
To ensure a smooth process during the underwriting process, communication with your loan originator is most important. Making sure that all documentation is provided in a timely manner makes the process work and makes the closing date goes smoothly.
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time when you are not helping people with their home loans?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. Time goes too fast with children so I try and take advantage of every moment.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Unique?? I live by a simple philosophy...we only get one spin on the this big, blue marble we call earth. Getting caught up with issues, problems, anger are things we cannot avoid but I try daily to remember the really important things. Family, friends, being honest and always giving my absolute best when it comes to everything.
