Best experience I've ever had with obtaining a loan. They were very knowledgeable!

It is rare to find a “Loan Broker” that is as attentive to a client for a $900,000 loan as they would be for a Multi-Million Dollar loan. The care, efficiency and patience of Francesco and his team with a first time borrower is unmatched. Without hesitation I would recommend Francesco to anyone looking for financing. Francesco and his team are true professionals, in every sense of the word. Francesco Foggia is my go to guy for any and all of my client’s financing needs.

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...

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.

This was a wonderful experience. I’ve used several other companies in the past and Guaranteed Rate is the way to go! I would recommended it above anything else!

"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...

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!

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...

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.

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.

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.
