My loan officer, Travis Vulich, was great, attentive, and working with him was easy. I was extremely happy with the service he provided. Also, I really liked the online format, made it really convenient for uploading information.

Tre M.-Barrington,IL | JUN 2016

We love Travis. He always goes above and beyond. We will always follow him.

Larry S. -Elmhurst, IL | MAY 2016

Travis Vulich has done several mortgages/refi's over the past 5+ years. This purchase in CA was by far and away the most difficult with many obstacles that were thrown in our way. Travis went above and beyond his job description many times during this entire process. Even our agent in CA, who wanted us to use a local lender, was VERY impressed with the customer service that Travis provided throughout. His communication is top notch!

Chad L. -Redding, CA | MAY 2016

Travis and his team are amazing! He let us know all the facts and possibilities up front and in a way that we could understand. We knew exactly what we needed to do at all times and it made buying a home a breeze. The team's competency and assistance from the start gave us the confidence to find the perfect house to call our forever home AND we can still afford to take vacations! I have already told a couple friends that they need to try Guaranteed Rate when they look to finance buying a...

Andrew F - Las Vegas, NV | Feb. 2016

Travis and his team made the whole process quick and easy. They walked us through everything and exactly what was needed. Friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to go that extra mile to make this happen for us. Being able to upload everything on-line was a great feature. We were very pleased with the individuals that did the appraisal and closing as well. A wonderful experience! No complaints. Thank you again for everything!

Renee S. - Bartlett, IL | Jan. 2016

We would probably do any future business with Travis. His constant availability, attention to detail, and his clear convection of his genuine care and concern for his clients make him a pleasure to work with. Before closing, he took the time to go through the HUD documents and explain where different numbers were coming from and how they were used elsewhere. I am an engineer and tend to be relatively anal about understanding what I'm looking at. So him taking the time to explain was really...

Check out this Lending Tree review for Travis! Travis was incredibly amazing throughout our entire home-buying process. I cannot stress enough how much of a consummate professional and trusted adviser he was for us, and how hard he worked to make our home purchase possible. Not only was Travis always quick to respond to our many emails or calls, but he also carved time out of his personal life to answer our questions/provide updates/talk through options with us (on many occasions) to...

About Travis

Helping people realize home ownership is a passion of mine. My primary motivation is to help homeowners understand the financial benefits and creative uses of a mortgage.

Through transparency, thoroughness and first-class communication, my clients feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I strive to be highly responsive through the use of our great technology platform.

With a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems from DeVry, I'm keen on details and a systematic process flow. I'm intrigued each day as every mortgage presents a very unique scenario! I greatly enjoy my role - I have the pleasure of meeting new people daily, cultivating those relationships and helping them to understand the importance of a mortgage within their financial situation!

I was born in DeWitt, Iowa, was raised in Parkersburg, WV and lived in Manhattan and Hollywood prior to moving to Chicago. My wife and I were married in 2006 and resided in Chicago for 8 years before relocating to Columbus, Ohio. We moved to Columbus to help plant a church for our main church campus in Chicago. I've been the Treasurer for the church since 2010. I definitely married-up and we're blessed with 3 children and our 4th child due in July of 2016 (4 children 5 and under!) I have a passion for spending time with my family, exercising/CrossFit and of course finances/rental properties!

Bottom line - great rates, low closing costs and great communication make for a great recipe for my clients!

Travis interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
Every customer is so different yet they are all the same in a hunger for asking questions and wanting to know more as I inform them on various mortgage options. We have the lowest rates, yet it isn't always rate that makes the most sense - making that statement intrigues them into asking why. That's where it all begins!
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
First time home buyers should ask a LOT of questions as well as set up a legit budget. It's easy to overspend when the more expensive home trumps the lessor. I try to encourage these buyers to 'qualify' on a 15 year fixed even if they choose a 30 year. Knowing they have room to apply additional principal is a huge benefit and needs to be discussed.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
I am the best resource for my borrowers. I have access to any and all information needed for a mortgage. I encourage questions and to call/text/email me any time. I respond very quickly to all and I ensure that I all questions are answered ....and that all answers make sense!
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
The most satisfying aspect of my job is knowing that my clients are extremely happy with the mortgage they received, the process and most importantly, my communication!
