Amy Brady and Nancy Garay were also great to work with. They were timely and diligent and easy to work with. I am glad I used Guaranteed Rate over Merrill Lynch/BofA. Upfront I thought the Guaranteed Rate Team was great to work with compared to Merrill and then the GR team went and backed it up with...

Mark interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
When I am working with customers to get a mortgage to buy or refinance a home, my primary mission is to provide them a \"Raving Fan\" service experience. I take a \"hands-on\" approach with my customers and with the help of my support team, I can provide the quality care and attention my referral sources can always rely on. My role as a loan officer is to be a trusted mortgage advisor for my customers and provide them with expert mortgage planning advice to enable them to obtain the best mortgage loan that meets their short and long term financial goals.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
For borrowers that have less than a 20% down payment or equity in their home they would have to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI) as a part of their payment. A relatively new PMI option is where for a slightly higher interest rate the cost of the PMI is paid for by the lender (Lender paid PMI) and there is no monthly paid PMI payment. In most cases, this results in a lower monthly payment for the borrower compared to the standard monthly paid PMI.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
Go to my homepage at and download the eBook, \"Demystifying the Mortgage Process\"
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I graduated from Notre Dame and have been in the Chicago area since then. I live in the wonderful western suburb of Riverside with my wife and 3 boys. I am Chairperson for the Riverside Economic Development Commission and also involved in coaching youth sports.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I am a passionate cook and foodie with a lifelong goal of opening up my own Italian restaurant
