Matthew Kennedy was fantastic to work with. During the three-month process of selling our condo and purchasing a new condo Matt routinely checked in with us. Twice on a minute's notice he made himself available for a conference call with my spouse and me when we had questions about our transaction. He had answers for all of our questions. His professionalism and friendly attitude typify our experience with Matt. The rest of the team was friendly and supportive also. Our experience with...

Was a fantastic experience with Matt Kennedy guiding us through the process and making sure everything goes smoothly. We also appreciated a lot that he would answer any question we had and made sure we got what we needed. Finally it was great to have Matt there during the closing as well. The other staff at guaranteed rate was fantastic, too.

I was very pleased with how smoothly my loan went through with Guaranteed Rate. They communicated with me effectively and always kept me informed of how things were progressing in procuring my loan. Guaranteed Rate also corresponded with my lawyer before my house closing. They answered all my questions too, and with using document signing on-line it was easy. Kudos to Guaranteed Rate!

Matt is very knowledgeable. From our first phone call I felt understood and believed he would help us. He is accommodating, even responding to calls on the weekend. Yet he is very calm when the stress was driving us nuts.

Matt did an exceptional job as our loan officer, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a reliable resource through that process. Matt provides a service level that goes above and beyond what you would normally expect, and did everything possible to make our experience a positive one. Buying a home always presents challenges and surprises, but with Matt in our corner, I felt comfortable knowing that he was there to guide us through those challenges, and get us the best result...

Matt is extremely knowledgeable. I have provided his information to friends and colleagues looking for a high-integrity and responsive loan officer. We could not have been more satisfied with the services provided. We will be contacting him again in the future!

Matt is one of my go-to loan officers in the industry. He knows the ins and outs of condo financing and is reliable and trustworthy. Matt is proactive in his communication style and sensitive during the loan approval process. I can confidently refer my clients to Matt for new home purchase or refinances.

Christina B.

Matt was incredibly helpful as I went through the process of my first home purchse. I had no idea the amount of detail needed in qualifying for a loan, but Matt always eased my concerns and broke down every scenario along the way. No matter the time of day, Matt was always willing to answer the many questions I had, and I can't thank him enough for his attentiveness and expertise. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to obtain a mortgage loan.

About Matt

Matt has been a mortgage loan officer for a little over five years. However, he has a combined 19 years of experience in the Financial Services industry. His experience as an Investment Advisor, Private Banker and Retail Banker help Matt bring a unique perspective to mortgage lending. “I like to leverage my financial background to bring a consultative approach to the mortgage loan process. This includes finding the right mortgage solution to fit into their overall financial plans.” Matt’s business model hinges upon top notch customer service. By staying heavily involved in the loan process, he makes sure the loan moves from pre-approval to application to closing efficiently and seamlessly. This also includes a high level of communication, making sure all parties involved in the process are kept up to speed along the way. Throughout Matt’s career, he has learned the importance of building relationships with his clients and business partners on both a professional and personal basis. “I want to not only take a vested interest in the mortgage goals of my clients, but I want to build relationships that last a lifetime,” he says.

Residing in the Chicago suburb of Glenview this is Matt’s third time calling the Chicago area home. In between he graduated from Michigan State University, then lived and worked in Southwestern Michigan, working for Fifth Third Bank in Kalamazoo, MI. Outside of work, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife Ioanna, and sons Johnny (5 years) and Will (2 years). He also is an avid golfer, and enjoys watching and playing football, baseball and basketball.
