As a first time home owner buying a home in the midst of tremendous uncertainty surrounding the changes to the tax code, I was very fortunate to be working with Francesco. His strong relationships in the lending community helped us to secure a competitive rate for a 35 day escrow window that fell over the holidays – nothing short of a miracle and he got the deal done seamlessly. His professionalism and depth of experience made what could have been a very stressful experience smooth and...

Miasie Short, CAIA, CFP®

I have sold over 1,000 luxury properties in my 30+ year career, dealt with dozens of lenders and quite a few good ones. Francesco is the best mortgage Broker I have ever worked with. Francesco is incredibly knowledgeable and very responsive serving me and my clients and getting the deal done. Francesco also has a great demeanor that makes everyone feel good and confident about the loan process.

Gary Gold Executive VP of Hilton & Hyland

Francesco summoned nothing less than a miracle to save my condo purchase. After being rejected by a big bank in the 11th hour, Francesco and his colleague Chris swooped in to come up with a smart new way to present my unconventional royalty-based finances. Within a few days I was approved with a new bank and my property saved. Can't thank these guys enough.

"They" say the 3 most stressful things in life, are a wedding, having a child, and buying a house. As I "close" the book on the 3rd of 3, I have to say, Melissa made the house buying the LEAST stressful of them all! She made the terrifying thought of obtaining a mortgage loan so stress and pressure free. She was amazing, accessible, and nothing short of easy to work with. From every question answered in a timely manner to just simply taking time out of her day JUST to check in! Have found my go...

Justin A. - September | 2017

I have been working with Melissa for some time now and MUST say that I have never worked with someone as extraordinary as she is. She is an anomaly in this business. SO many other do the bare minimum and Melissa goes far beyond anything I have ever encountered. It is a pleasure to work with her on transactions and I trust no one else with my clients. She handles each client of mine as if they are her only client and takes time to baby step the entire process with them so the feel comfortable...

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.

Bashar (my loan officer) kept me updated through every step of the way which took a very long time. He was very patient, courteous, and responsive. I used Guaranteed Rate because of Bashar and I will use him again when the time comes because of his professionalism and expertise in this field. I am very grateful that he was able to close my mortgage and get the home I wanted.

Mario D. - Compton, CA | DEC 2017

Bashar Hamad deserves 10+ stars! Bashar made the entire mortgage process fast, straightforward and easy to understand. Without him we would have been lost. I will gladly be referring everyone to him and will be using him on my future mortgages.

Shezad A. - Los Angeles, CA | November 2017

Bashar did an excellent job of handling a complex refinancing situation. He also was superb in dealing with problems caused by others and made sure every thing worked well. I 'd be delighted to recommend him and his firm to anyone seeking refinancing.

My loan officer, Bashar Hamad, was amazing. This is my second loan him in as many years and I would never go anywhere else. He provides a personal touch and professionalism that is unparalleled in the industry in my opinion. He has earned my business for life! Thank you, Bashar!

Bashar is the best. Would definitely use him again and feel comfortable referring him to a friend.

Timothy R. - Redondo Beach, CA | MAY 2017

Bashar Hamad was helping us with the loan and he was simply amazing. We were first time home buyers and had a ton of questions (some quite stupid). But Bashar was very patient and explained everything to us in simple terms. He understood what we needed and made sure all our needs were met. He was always available (phone and email) and was very responsive whether it be late in the evening or over the weekend. Thank you Bashar for making our dream house a reality!!!!!

Guaranteed Rate Office in Los Angeles, CA

We 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!
