You were patient with my questions. You made it easy to do all of the paperwork with e-signature. Closing day was well organized. All items clearly explained. And all my questions answered. Thank you. One last comment. Union Savings Bank seems to be very efficient and had the least complicated forms for arranging the automatic draft plan for the mortgage account. All completed and mailed to them last week!

This was our first home purchase - so we had no idea what to expect. I think, in our minds, we thought it was going to be a long, arduous process. But after initially talking to Ron Erdmann on the phone where he clearly walked us through the process, we felt more at ease. As the process went on, it was clear communication - even when there was nothing to communicate. Someone on his staff always kept us in the loop where we were in the process and what was happening. We never felt out of the...

I thought the process was very simple and smooth. The loan officer understood my needs and provided the best recommendation and also obtained a very competitive deal.

Isabelle L. - Cincinnati, OH | MAR 2017

The whole process was very well organized and used technology well. The loan officer and his staff were extremely professional and responsive. They got the deal done efficiently and quickly. It was a great experience!

Brian Andy Allison was awesome! They worked so hard for us and went above and beyond through the entire process. Not only did they work hard but they were so utterly friendly and professional. 5 Stars way high for both of them as they are forever Rockstars for Gauranteed Rate. You should consider yourself lucky to have such talented people on your team. Always remember that your people make you who you are and they represent your brand an exceptional level. kudos again to this amazing team and...

Bonnie and John J.

The team I worked with was exceptional! Always super helpful, efficient, and quick to reply to all of my questions throughout the entire process! My home loan closed on time, right in the midst of the holidays - everything went smoothly!

Olivia S.

We appreciate Ron staying to work late the night of the election to lock in our new loan rate. He called us to confirm the loan we wanted so we could lock in before rates likely changed the following day. It was very thoughtful of him. Ron and Lauren were very patient with us as we changed loan terms in the middle of the first loan. We would have enjoyed meeting Ron at the closing. We never got to meet him in person.

Brent N.

Ron Erdmann and his team, Alison Belveal, etc. were exceptionally helpful and ensured a timely close for my wife and I. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Guaranteed Rate.

Richard M.

Ron Erdmann & his team were wonderful to us. We needed to get refinanced quickly & had difficult circumstances. They guided us through the process explaining many things that we didn't understand. I don't think we could have done it in time without their help. We will recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Lucretia P.

This was my first time buying a home on my own. The Ron Erdmann group made it easy. Ever time I had questions or concerns they gave me answers and reassurance about the process. They were always cheerful and helpful despite my many phone calls and emails.

Carrie Z.

Ron Erdmann and everyone else who helped my wife and me refinance our home were extremely helpful, nice and professional. I would definitely feel comfortable recommending their services to friends and family. Coming from our first experience when we first initiated our mortgage, with another company, we were honestly not expecting to end up feeling so at ease.

Matthew C.

Given my circumstances at the time of the loan application, I felt as though Guaranteed Rate did an overall great job; Guaranteed Rate investigated and ensured my unique financial circumstances had met all the loan guidelines and requirements, prior to the submission of my loan application/file to their underwriting department. As a result, Guaranteed Rate did an outstanding job easing the process of purchasing a home, via their level of outstanding commitment in order to aid their customers as...

Excellent experience. Closing was done in less than 30 days from submitting request. I felt that Ron and staff were on top of everything. I got quick responses to my emails. I was made to feel that I was there only client and that they were working 24 hours a day to get by loan processed. They also kept me informed of every step along the way.

Ron was a true professional and was remarkable to work with.

Daniel C. - Fort Meyer, Fl | Nov. 2014

Ron made sure all the details, no matter how small, were taken care of. We had to do very little ourselves. Ron took care of it all.

Ron opened our eyes to options we didn’t know existed. He was courteous and professional. His follow up and service were excellent. We are happy we were referred to him.

Ron interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
My typical clients are highly educated. They are experts in their field, but they aren’t experts in home buying or mortgage lending. They were referred to me because they are looking for honest, expert advice on the best way to execute their home buying plans, with the least amount of stress possible, at highly competitive interest rates, with a lender they trust will get it done for them at the promised terms.
How long have you been in the mortgage business? What awards have you won?
I was personally ranked a Top 1% Mortgage Originator in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine for 2014 and 2015. I was also a voted Cincinnati Five Star Mortgage Professional in 2014 and 2015. Per Scotsman Guide, I was ranked #208 in Homebuyer Purchases in 2015.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
Conventional 30 year fixed mortgage with 5% down payment and no monthly PMI. It often offers the lowest fixed monthly payment with the highest tax advantages.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
During the ten years that I have been in the mortgage industry, I have been privileged to receive multiple accolades. From 2011 to the present, each year I have been ranked as one of the Top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America. In addition, I have also qualified as one of the Top 500 Mortgage Originators in the country in 2015 and have been recognized as a Five Star Mortgage Professional by Cincinnati Magazine since 2010. My success is based off providing the highest level of expertise and confidence in what I do. From past clients that continue to use my services to my business partners that refer me, there is no question that I will get my customer the best rate available.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
Clients have a time getting reliable answers to questions like “How much down payment do I need?” “What is a good credit score?” “How much home can I afford?” I not only give my clients clear answers to these questions, but I explain the technical factors and the driving forces behind the answers, so they can make an educated decision as to what is best for them.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Doing a great job for clients, and hearing them tell stories after closing about how much they are enjoying the house and all of the projects they are working on.
