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.

Grace D. - Beverly Hills, CA | DEC 2016

It was a pleasure working with Steven Maize. Steven and his team were professional and patient with us as first time home buyers. The knowledge, efficiency and communication within the team was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend Steven and his team to anyone in need of a loan. Thanks for all the help and support.

Itamar R.-Los Angeles,CA | May 2016

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.

Bradley D.-Los Angeles,CA | MAY 2016

The whole process of refinancing my home mortgage was efficient, especially the help of my loan officer Sam. This is the third time I have used guarantee great to refinance the home mortgage.

John W.- Carmel, CA | MAR 2016

One of the easiest and most positive loan experiences we've had. Very satisfied with our interest rate and the responsiveness of Sam B. and his team!

Noreen H.-Newbury La Honda, CA | MAR 2016

Sam Batayneh and his team at Guaranteed Rate performed above and beyond expectations! That is a lot to say, but it's only part of the story. Sam and his team are efficient and friendly, and they help in so many ways. Many others will make promises that can't be met... With Sam, he knew my needs, we set realistic goals, and then he helped to meet those goals. I recommend him and Guaranteed Rate without reservation.

Michael N.-Newbury Park, CA | MAR 2016

Sam is great - makes me feel as though I am an important customer, and keeps my interests foremost in his mind.

Very few companies would have been as persistent in getting the job done. My kudos to Sam Batayneh and his team.

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!

Shawn D. - Yorba Linda, CA | JUL 2017

I have been working with Sherry for over 20 years. I trust her completely. She has always been able to get the loans approved even for my most challenging clients she takes on. If for any reason, someone can not qualify for a loan, she tells me upfront so I don't waste any time. She is a dedicated, knowledgeable, very sharp professional and also a great communicator. She is a hard worker, who just gets the job done!!! I love working with her.

Corinne A.

Bashar Hamad was excellent. Prompt, courteous and extremely professional. I have recommended him to friends and family.

Pardeep B. - La Canada, CA | JUN 2017

We are very satisfied with the service and attention we received from Mr. Bashar and his team that helped us to refinance our home. Mr. Bashar always showed professionalism all the time. We definitely will recommend him as loan officer. Thank you very much for the good service we received.

Francis C. - Perris, CA | JUN 2017

While I had not had any experience using Sherry until 2016, I found her to be the ultimate professional and totally candid through the sales process which enabled the deal to close smoothly and without incident. As she helped my clients tremendously, it was a great reflection upon me as their real estate agent. I would not hesitate to use Sherry in the future.

I’ve worked for a Beverly Hills Business Management firm for over 25 years and have used Ms. Kia’s services for most of those years. Ms. Kia’s approach has always been honest, to the point and with the least amount of paperwork. She always makes me look good and makes my job easier. I’ve not only used her in my business but personally and have recommended her to family and friends. She’s the best.

Michael W.

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

Timothy R. - Redondo Beach, CA | MAY 2017

Sherry Kia was wonderful to work with! I have secured many loans through the years and this loan was by far the most challenging. However, Sherry's expertise and guidance made this process one of the smoothest and easiest loans to close. Sherry kept us informed of the process at every step. It was imperative we close on a specific date and she made it happen. Sherry is the only lender I will work with and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting excellent customer service and a great...

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!!!!!

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!
