Rich Postlethwait has a very difficult name to spell but after that he is the best and most approachable realtor I could imagine. His knowledge and ability to communicate it in terms that a layman can understand is unequaled. Rich is extremely personable whether in person or on the phone. This characteristic is passed on to all the people who work with him which allows the customer to be relaxed and confident when asking questions or getting advise. I would recommend and have in the past...

Rich and his team did such an amazing job helping us with our loan. We had a short sale, and were first time home buyers.

The online forms were so easy to send throughout our loan process, and we received daily emails and alerts to let us know how the process was going. We had such a pleasant first time experience and would highly recommend Rich and his team at Guaranteed Rate! Thanks...

We have already recommended your services to a friend who is looking to...

"I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience was! From beginning to end, the Guaranteed Rate team was phenomenal to work with! Rich even went out of his way to present multiple options and get me pre-approved. My realtor, Elizabeth Sincox has worked with Rich for many years and highly reccomended him and I've already referred Rich and his team to a few friends who are currently looking for a new home."

Thanks to Rich and his team, the process of refinancing our mortgage was practically a nonevent. We now have a lower rate of interest on our primary home mortgage and look forward to many years in our home of 32 years. The information required was detailed for us and put in proper format for the closer. The closer was very professional and did a first rate job, all in the comfort of our home. We would recommend Guaranteed Rate, Inc. to everyone with the caveat that Rich Postlethwait and...
