The closing went great...very smooth transaction. Thank you so much for all your help!

Mike F.

Team Brasil was fantastic--prompt, knowledgeable, efficient, fast, all while remaining sensitive to the human on the other side of the process. I have already recommended Guaranteed Rate/Team Brasil to listing agents and attorneys used in another transaction. The reason is, obviously, our experience.

David E.

Paul was fantastic to work with - very available, professional and easy to deal with. He made a complex process simple.

Julia T. | June 2018

The customer service provided by Guaranteed Rate and all who assisted with the loan were fantastic. All details provided were accurate and help was provided when needed.

Lee V. - May | 2018

Sammy has been a great loan officer. He is patient and thorough. And I felt like he always had my best interest in mind. Would definitely recommend him.

Trent Z. | July 2018

I highly recommend Savvas as a loan officer. He was very helpful. Answered my texts and calls even on her wife's birthday. This dude is the real deal. He goes above and beyond just to make sure you can afford your loan. He pointed out every single detail and gave you the explanations needed. Thank you So Much Guaranteed Rate for making this transition as smooth as possible.

Bernard L.-Melrose, MA | MAY 2016

Savvas was absolutely Phenomenal. We are first time home buyers and he took the time to explain everything in detail. I had his personal number to ask any questions, it was just a great experience in general and WILL be recommending him to everyone.

Ryan O - Roslindale, MA | Feb. 2016

Sammy was amazing. I have been in touch with two other companies that asked for the impossible, at the last minute which was a big turnoff. Sammy explained the process and what was need from me. I have heard some nightmare stories about obtaining a loan and this experience was nothing like any stories. I will definitely send people Sammy's way in the near future.

Michael M. | March 2018

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

Sammy and his team were extremely helpful and always kept us in the loop. He was also able to accommodate our schedule, which meant a lot of evening calls and emails. I also liked the process with using dropbox to provide key loan support documentation. He and his team were also responsive in answering my questions and laying out the next steps in the process. All in all it was a very smooth process.

Mark P. -Everett, MA | APR 2016

The process was quick and easy. Staff knew what they were doing and were kind doing it. I will highly recommend them. It's great to work with a company that treats their clients with respect and class. Thanks again so much.

Adalberto S. -Somerville, MA | MAR 2016

I was very satisfied with Sammy and his hard work! I would definitely use Sammy again!

Michelle L. -- Milton, MA 6/21/2014

I also wanted to personally thank you for all the hard work you have put in for managing this loan. Your patience in dealing with my many questions did not go unnoticed. Should a future client ever need a reference please feel free to forward my contact information to them. I would also be more than happy to refer your services to any friends/family in the future who are in need of loans! I will let them know that Savvas will make it happen!

Faren L. - Boston, MA 4/2012

Very well... Savvas and his team kept us informed and gave us suggestions on what was the best route for us to go. He was available 24/7 it seemed and had an answer right away. I felt very confident in leaving this refinancing in his and his teams hands. Very Satisfied. It was even better that for the closing the lawyer came to our home which was a help. Sawas and his team gave us the best closing date we could and in the end we did not have to go to the table with as much money as we had...

Ann D. - Milford, MA 2/2012

I can say that working with your team was more than business --- they were always helpful and very sincere. It was a win win situation for us. I thank your team and you for everything.

Dave and Sara

Thanks to my loan officer, Chris Niland, I am now all settled into my new place and could not be happier. His experience and knowledge on the end to end loan application process provided me with the information I needed to secure financing. More importantly, he made himself available to answer all of my questions (which there were many) resulting in an efficient and painless experience!

Lindsey V. -- Dorchester Center, MA 6/23/2014

Paul was calm, diligent and supportive. He and his team made themselves very available to answer questions and I am grateful to Guaranteed Rate and the team for getting through everything on time! I was very pleased with the efficient and timely way everyone communicated with me and each other.

Sylvia S. – Concord, MA | Jan. 2015

Everything went smoothly, in a timely manner and accommodations were made to conduct the closing while my family and I vacationed. Ilene Cohen was fantastic, organized and responsive!!!!
