The loan process was made super easy. Everyone was extremely helpful and always available to answer questions

Bashar made my first home buying experience really easy and eased my stress. Thought purchasing a home in another state and working with a loan officer over the phone would be difficult, but Bashar made it so simple and explained everything along the process. I trust him and his work so much that I am recommending him to others in my company that are relocating to Oregon and need help qualifying for a loan for home purchase. Thank you Bashar and team!

Steven Maizes is amazing.

Bashar is an absolute super star. Time and again he went above and beyond to make the process efficient and understood, not to mention he is a magician. How he was able to get 4 exceptions from Wells Fargo is nothing short of magic. As long as he is part of the Guaranteed Rate family, I will happily come back.
Scott R. | September 2018
From the beginning, Bashar was helpful, thorough and patient. I explained my situation and he reassured me that there were different options that were available to me. Once in escrow, his and his team's directions were clear and concise, enabling me to submit the necessary paperwork and close in 19 days! I will gladly refer him to family and friends.

This is the second loan I have obtained with Steven Maizes. He makes the process very easy. Steve and his support team are top notch. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Sam Batayneh and his team are above and beyond customer service. I have heard horror stories about buying your first home or getting a mortgage loan but they have made it almost effortless. I appreciate their follow up, market awareness, advice, and honesty! Amazing experience!

It has been a wonderful experience working with Lyndi Mallory. I cannot thank her enough however since this has been such a group effort - she and her entire team deserve credit and applause!! I'd recommend Lyndi for her responsiveness and transparency. She is most definitely genuine; through the entire process she looked out for my best interests. She reduces risk by communicating clearly from the first hello and until the loan has been funded.

I am very happy with the service provided to me for this refinance. The process went smoothly. Big thanks to Guaranteed Rate and to Bashar, who handled my account. I truly appreciate the full attention to details and also the guidance in providing the information needed to finalize the mortgage loan. I also think the daily updates I got during the process was so helpful and comforting. Thanks again.

Thank you Lyndi for all of your help, it was a stressful process but you and Josh made it easy. You kept me informed and abreast of what was going on, it was a pleasure working with both of you. Yay! Can't wait to get my hands on those keys and start planning the move! :)

Gus - Refinance
As always, you really went out of your way to be helpful in so many ways. As always you did it with kindness and smiles. We really appreciate your help. You are one of those wonderful people we enjoy working with. Please accept our sincere thanks from the bottom of our heart.

Lyndi: Without you, I'm not sure we would have made it to step one. It was your unique ability to interpret our complex financial portfolio and say "hey, we can do this" that opened doors that we assumed were closed to us. You asked all the right questions during our first phone call, a sign to me that you think outside the box. Thank you!

The Loan Officer I spoke with was Michael Most. He was wonderful to work with. He was efficient, responsive and completely honest concerning what would be provided by both sides of the equation. I was very grateful to him.

Guaranteed Rate Office in Los Angeles, CAWe have a philosophy to “lend where we live” at Guaranteed Rate and our office has been originating loans in the Los Angeles area since 2013. We’re happy to have our office right in the middle of all the action, halfway between the Sunset Strip in Hollywood and Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. In our market, we know that Jumbo and other non-conforming loans are important to you. We have a deep understanding of how to get Jumbo loans done and we work hard to convey that knowledge to our clients. We are also armed with a full array of loan products, so that we can meet all of your other lending needs.
At Guaranteed Rate, you will find that we strive for the industry leading value proposition for our loan officers, referral sources and customers, which is why we work by a set of Core Values. While each of these are important to our success, our office embodies the “Bias to Action” core value as we will do everything possible to get the loan closed.
It never rains in southern California, so our office gets outside every chance that we get. We also love to root for our LA teams, the Dodgers, Kings, Lakers, Clippers and now the Rams! While it is important that our office has fun and each team member loves their job, we also are dedicated to giving back. Over the holiday season, we donated almost 1,000 pounds of food to the Greater LA Food Bank.
Our branch is looking to grow its production by expanding into new markets and partnering with great individuals. So, if you’re looking for new career opportunities, start with us! We hire the best of the best and are looking for team members that have a deep connection to their communities and markets, and are looking to take their production to the next level. It is our branch’s goal to become the #1 lender in the Los Angeles market. We even hosted our own GR Palooza at the world famous Troubadour with over 250 guests to help get our name out around town. Come grow with us!
