The process was so easy and stress free. For a time in my life that is deemed the most stressful, James and his whole team made the process incredibly easy. We were so nervous about getting approved for a home because we didn't think we had a good enough down payment, or had good enough credit, etc. However, we soon learned through the pre-approval process that we actually could afford a home and now we have a place of our own rather than renting. We loved guaranteed rate!

James Solimini is fantastic at his job. Would never have thought to refinance after owning our condo for just a year and a half. James and his team made it very simple and affordable for us to drop our rate nearly a full point. Thanks!

Before buying our house many of my friends had expressed how long and confusing the home buying process was. However my experience with Guaranteed Rate was quite the opposite. James Solimini and his team went above and beyond to make the entire process quick and painless. We will be recommending him to all of our friends and family who are planning on buying a home in the future.

Our loan officer, James Solimini, made buying our first home incredibly easy. We felt comfortable from beginning to end. He is a true professional and we could tell he really loves his job. I have already recommended Guaranteed Rate to friends and family looking to buy a home because of James and the entire process. We are so happy. Thank you GR and James!

The process was straightforward and our questions were always answered in a timely and detailed manner. I felt that the staff we worked with were very friendly and knowledgeable and really wanted us to feel comfortable with the mortgage process; James Solimini (Waltham, MA) was especially helpful and always available if we needed any information or had questions about the loan itself or the underwriting process. He and Amanda Smith (Southeast division) went above and beyond to help us wrap up...

Cristi B. | 10/11/2016

From the moment my offer was accepted, friends kept telling me horror stories about their mortgage experiences. They told me getting approved for a mortgage would be a frustrating and tedious process. Couldn't not have been less the case with my experience with Guaranteed Rate, Ron Gardiner and his team. Once my purchase and sale was executed, my GR online account was populated with requests for all of the necessary documents. I uploaded them and GR did the rest. I was kept updated on the...

Elizabeth J. - Hanover, MA | JUL 2016

We had the pleasure of working with Andrew Marquis as our loan officer. As first time home-buyers we a lot of needed guidance and support - Andrew was knowledgeable, patient, and accessible which gave us confidence in our decisions throughout process. He takes his client's best interests into account, and will offer thoughtful ways to make things work out successfully - even if it does not directly benefit his business. He is a great advocate and resource, and when we told others (realtors,...
