Ricardo was fantastic! I couldn't recommended him enough. He was so responsive, very amicable, and lovely to work with.

I positively LOVED working with the Brasil brothers and their team. They were kind, patient, and so knowledgeable in guiding me through my first home-buying experience. Thank you!

Monica B.

The process were seamless- Even though there were several steps and people involved, this was explained in advance so there was no confusion. Paul personally had oversight. I greatly appreciated this. Paul was available for a call even after hours or over the weekend.

Paul Archibald and his team made our experience great. I have worked with Paul in the past and will work with him again in the future. He is very consultative, asks the right questions, and facilitates the process in a manner that is effective without being aggressive or pushy

Michael P. - Dover, MA | MAR 2017

Paul goes above and beyond the call of the average loan officer. He was patient, well informed, communicated well, and was streamlined with his request. He guided me correctly on the rate and was punctual with all of the closing docs. His team made the application process very easy and if I had any questions they were answered in a very quick and professional fashion.

Very easy to work with Roger and his team. They were always available. Closing costs were very reasonable and the interest rate was competitive.Would work with them again.


Paul is great to work with. I felt like he truly had my best interest in mind. It was very easy to upload the correct paperwork and docu-sign made things seamless.

Renee T. - 7/12/16

We really enjoyed the ease of the application process and the digital signature option for most of the paperwork. My wife and I had many questions along the way and the staff at Guaranteed Rate answered all of them. Start to finish, the entire process took about a month.

Gino B. - 5/31/16

Paul as always was very professional and responsive. I would highly recommend Paul to a friend.

Daniel B. - 6/10/16

Working with Roger and his team was the easiest part of buying my home. I was introduced to them by a realtor I was working with about a year and a half ago when I was trying to buy a property. Before I worked with Roger, I was working with someone who was too busy to answer my phone calls and emails and I was resigned to the fact that it was just going to be a painful process. When I started working with Roger and his team, I was pleasantly surprised to find that getting a loan did not have to...


My wife and I met Roger Brasil through our agent when buying our first home together as a married couple and we’re glad we did! We found our dream house and as part of putting together an attractive offer for the seller, we agreed to an accelerated timeframe for closing - 5 weeks! Roger got us pre-approval letters faster than any loan officer I’ve ever worked with prior and got us the most competitive rates possible. He took the time to understand everything about us so that he could provide...

The people at Guaranteed Rate were fantastic.

Abda L. -Boston,MA | SEP 2016

Christopher Niland was extremely professional, knowledgeable & helpful. He had been recommended to me by my broker & I couldn't be more satisfied. Christopher was prompt with responding to any of my questions or concerns and explained things well to a first time buyer. I will absolutely recommend him & your company in future to friends & family.

At Guaranteed Rate, we have a philosophy to “lend where we live” and our office has been originating loans in the Boston area since 2009. We are happy to call this beautiful city our home with its historic roots and unpredictable New England weather. Our office building even follows in the historic pattern of the city, located in a converted factory building near the seaport district.

In our market, we know that Conventional loans are important to you and we are dedicated to meeting those needs. We are also armed with a full array of loan products, so that we can meet all of your lending needs. It's part of our core values to put the customer first.

Each year we also look forward to cheering on the athletes participating in the Boston Marathon. We love to root for our local teams, too – go Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins!

While it is important that our office has fun, we also are dedicated to giving back. We love Boston and are always interested in learning about new ways we can give back to our community! We even participate in an annual food drive to support the city.
