From the very beginning of the home buying experience, I was pleased. From the buying agent I had, to the recommendation to use Guaranteed Rate for my lender. Pam and her team made entire process a breeze from the start to closing. I've heard the horror stories when it comes to purchasing a home and getting financing, and let me tell you. Being a first time home buyer and using this company, I can't imagine it could ever get easier! Thank you to Pam and her team at Guaranteed Rate for helping...

Pam Ola went above and beyond to help me and calm my fears. She was knowledgeable and helped obtain a loan when others could not. She is #1 on my list!!

Tracy S. – 3/17/2016

I checked into a refi but decided the rate was still too high. The Loan Officer (Pam Oluola) called me back a month later to tell me that the rate had dropped. It's because of this that I am now on-track with my plan pay off my home and have a mortgage free early retirement. Thank You!

Rebecca D. – 3/23/2016

Pam Ola and her team made this process so wonderful for me. Being self employed lenders turned me away without much consideration. Pam took me right in and said "we can get this done for you." She was continually patient all the way to the finish line. I love my new home and I can't thank her enough!

Stephanie B. – 2/29/2016

I would like to thank Pam and her team for making my experience with obtaining a house an easy one.

Rodney K. – 2/22/2016

I wanted to tell you what a great job you did getting Tracy approved for her mortgage. I suggested she go to you and see what you could do based on our previous exchange regarding how you like to help self-employed borrowers and how you know how to get it done when other lenders may not be able to. You are a rock star!!!!!! I hope your day is a little brighter know you made a significant difference in Tracy's life!

My wife and I have employed Pam on two different occasions, and we will certainly use her services in the future as well. On both occasions, she was fun and personable, yet professional. She has an excellent knowledge of the industry, and we trust her. She truly wants the best for her clients, and understands that long-term relationships are the way business should be done.

Ryan E., February 4, 2011

In my 13 years’ experience as a Real Estate Appraiser, I have never met anyone as trustworthy and thorough as Pam. I have done several appraisals for Pam’s client and they all have nothing but good things to say about their experience. I was so impressed with Pam’s character and the quality of her work that I chose to use Pam for the refinance of my own personal residence over all of the mortgage people I have done appraisal work for. Pam is the ONLY mortgage broker that I recommend to people...

Mike H., February 8, 2011

Can’t pick just 3 attributes, but will try! Pam was our advocate at every step of us buying a new house. She was great to work with, a deep expert on mortgage types, and was a trustworthy source we could depend on to inform us and help us make the best possible decisions. We could not have done it without her.

Heather C., February 8, 2011,

Pam has been the ONLY mortgage broker I have used, since 2004 when she came to me highly recommended. She is very knowledgeable and stays up to date on the latest rules and regulations. I have used her several times as a financial advisor and her skills are very well rounded. I have been so pleased with her performance I have trusted her with my family and friends who are also impressed with her skills.

Michelle W., February 8, 2011

Pam helped me refinance my home in 2010. From our first contact she was extremely attentive to our needs and provided several options to help me make the best decision. She is very personable and easy to work with. As a result of her efforts, we were able to save nearly $50K over the lifetime of our mortgage.

Matt A., February 8, 2011

We have used Pam several times, and we highly recommend her to everyone we know. She is extremely knowledgeable, and delivers quality results. My favorite thing about her is that I trust her to give me the best deal possible, and set it up in a manner that benefits ME.

Ryan E., May 3, 2013

Pam has helped me refinance my home mortgage twice and I would go through her again. She went the extra mile making sure my loan went through when times could have been hard and her timing for getting me the best rate possible was perfect.

Jim R., May 4, 2013

Pam has a vast knowledge of the mortgage loan process. She is extremely professional and very easy to work with. Pam is readily available and willing to walk through every step of loan process so that there are no surprises or issues that block the loan process.

She is a dogged advocate for her clients and is a hard worker. I have no reservations recommending her and look forward to working with her again.

Brian B., May 10, 2013

She made the process of refinance as painless as I believe possible! I hate pulling financials! Thank You Pam.

Tim C., September 18, 2013

Pam is excellent to work with and does what she says she will do in a timely fashion. More importantly, she frequently goes above and beyond what is expected of her and does so with a smile. She makes things happen. I highly recommend her as a partner you should add to your own business.

Dave M., October 7, 2013

Pam was so great. We had to be out of our current house and we had already planned an out of town trip. Somehow she was able to close on our home before we left for out of town. It was such a blessing for our family to purchase our first home and not having to continue to rent.

Karman R., June 3, 2014

I have worked with Pam on some mutual Clients for a little while now, and I have seen first hand the wealth of knowledge and experience she has. Pam has been in the business for a long time and has worked on all sides of the mortgage process. Being an insurance agent, I know how important it is in having a good Mortgage person. If you are looking to purchase, refinance, or just have some questions, I highly recommend you use Pam Ola!

Brian C., January 16, 2015

Detail oriented, professional, very easy to work with. I've now used Pam twice and on both occasions was very pleased. As a veteran and a self employed business owner sometimes home loans can be very difficult to obtain. Pam understand business financial and VA loans. I would recommend Pam’s services to anyone looking to make that purchase of a lifetime.

David C., January 17, 2015

Pam is a proactive and tireless Mortgage Originator. Pam has originated several loans for us, each loan has been handled in a very professional and timely manner. I would recommend Pam to help with any mortgage financing needs you may have.

Cindy C., February 9, 2015

I have had the pleasure work with Pam on a few loans. She has always been a few steps ahead on the lending process. It has been a breath of fresh air to work with a lender that does not wait until the last minute. I have also had questions with some unique situations and Pam is more than willing to help. I would be happy to share her name and number with my family and friends.

About Pam

I got into the mortgage lending business about 14 years ago after deciding that I needed a career change that would enable me to spend less time travelling and more time with my family. After trying financial planning, insurance sales and investment advising—all of which were okay—I found mortgages and have been happy lending money to homeowners ever since! I truly love helping people finance their homes! I like the challenge of figuring out the best loan program/product for each individual client’s situation. I try to treat every client the same way I would like to be treated if I was in their place—with great service, prompt attention, explanations to any questions they have and making the process as simple and straightforward as possible! I think treating people that way is why I have so many repeat clients as well as referrals to their family and friends.

Pam interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I start by having a conversation with each client to discuss both their short and long term goals. Then I will have them fill out an application (online or over the phone with me) and then I will look at all available loan programs they qualify for. Once I have done that I will make a few recommendations and then provide a summary of those options. If they are purchasing a home I will then send the client and their realtor a preapproval letter and let them start home shopping! While they are looking for their home, I start collecting documents so that we can get their loan done quickly once they find a home. If they are refinancing - we will discuss which program makes the most sense in their situation and then we will get started on their refinance.
Tell us about a specific challenging borrowing situation and how you got the mortgage closed and funded.
I will just say this - there are MANY challenging situations that come up! Some loans are simple. But there are a lot that are complicated. Many people are self employed, are commission based, have changed jobs/careers, want to buy a property that has a few problems that need to be fixed, have had prior credit challenges, lost a home, had a bankruptcy, etc..... The list could go on and on. Whether the challenges you may have come up when I am taking your initial application, or are discovered in the loan process, I am very good at working through the challenges and figuring out a solution that works for both the client and the lender. It is one of the things I enjoy most about this job - using the skills I have learned and thinking outside of the box to figure out the solutions. And if there is not a work around today for someone's challenges - I am happy to take the time to tell you what needs to be done to help you with a loan in the future.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Tell me about anything that you think might be a challenge upfront - so I can plan accordingly. And then provide the documents we request quickly. Help me and my team do our job quickly and efficiently so there is no last minute stress on your part.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
My nickname is Pam Ola - the Mortgage Chick! I like to giggle. I talk with my hands, even when I am on the phone and no one can see me! And I seldom leave my shoes on- I should probably be called the Barefoot Mortgage Chick. And I think life should be enjoyed every day, no matter your circumstances - life is short so let's make the best of it!!
