My experience with Guaranteed Rate was just great. Everybody in the team was professional, understanding, proactive and kind. Everybody will go the extra mile to make sure everything was in order and on-time. We couldn't be happier we chose Guaranteed Rate and will recommend you to as many people as we can. Forever thankful.

Robert B was amazing. He is very professional and always responded to every email and phone call. He was very helpful throughout the loan process. At the end his whole team was also very helpful in processing our loan. Thank you team Guaranteed Rate.

Ketan R. | April 2018

We had no idea about the process and Robert held our hands to the finish line. He carefully explained every details to help us make informed decisions. He also took care of the appraisal. Most importantly, a couple of days before closing, he was able to get us a lower rate than originally locked. He also has a great staff who are courteous and organized. We closed smoothly without a hitch. Fantastic experience!

Robert was wonderful to work with. As a first time home buyer, there are so many questions and first time encounters. Anytime we needed something, Robert made himself available and was extremely patient. He was quick to respond, attentive and kept in touch throughout the entire process.

I can't overstate just how easy Robert Bojakian and his entire team made this process. This is the fourth time I have used Robert for mortgage services. Two refis, a purchase in Missouri and a purchase in Orlando and he has taken the "hassle" out of every process. He is a true professional and he always gets back to me whenever I have a question in record time. I would absolutely use Robert again and recommend him to anyone I know in need of any mortgage related services!!! A HUGE thank you to...

Robert Bajakian and his team done a phenomenal job in wrapping the complete loan process including funding within a record two and half weeks. When I said that Guaranteed is trying to work on funding the load in a two/three weeks’ time frame nobody believed it, but Robert’s team did it. We are extremely pleased w/his professionalism, transparency, accuracy, honesty, communications, sticking to his words and living up to his words especially within a three week window. As a customer, we can’t...

“When we started shopping for our mortgage we initially worked with another company. When it came time to finally pull the trigger they stopped returning calls. We were in a complete panic and thankfully found Robert Bajakian and his team. Robert was considerate, friendly and most importantly patient as we had a million questions. He spent a ton of time taking our calls and answering our emails explaining every detail to us until we were comfortable. He got us a wonderful rate and from start to...

About Robert

Utilizing my education and background in the financial services industry has allowed me to thoroughly educate my clients throughout the mortgage transaction so they fully understand all of the available loan options. In addition, my vast knowledge and resources allows me to advise and educate my clients on market trends to insure we secure the best rate and terms on their chosen loan program.


Robert interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
As every client that I work with has their own unique needs it is extremely important for me to understand their overall financial picture and long and short term goals so that I can advise them on the appropriate loan options.
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
The best advice I could give to a first time home buyer would be to start the mortgage financing process 6-12 months before you ready to buy. By allowing me to review your income, credit and assets early in the process it allows you to properly prepare for one of life's biggest purchases. As I always say, "get your Financial House in order before you fall in love with a home".
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Ask a lot of questions and take the time to thoroughly review what documents are being requested. By providing ALL of the documents upfront it allows both my Processing & Underwriting team to complete their analysis in a timely matter.
Summary of where you grew up: family, affiliations, college, high school, etc.
I was born and raised in NY but happy to call NC my home.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
An entrepreneur and dreamer at heart.
