Working with Guaranteed Rate to obtain a mortgage loan was quite easy. The online system was easy to use to upload our documents, though sometimes some things did not copy over well so we needed to re-submit or provide an updated version. The staff was always prompt and in communication with us in a timely manner about anything we needed.

Jim Earl and his team did a fantastic job with my loan, going above and beyond in many regards. Personalized service, fair rates, reasonable fees, just excellent service from everyone. Response time excellent, and the electronic submittals are very user friendly. It was a pleasure doing business with Guaranteed Rate and this team. Thank you.

From start to finish, Jim Earl and his team at Guaranteed Rate (Plantsville, CT) were hugely helpful to my wife and me as we mortgaged our new construction home. Jim helped us to fully understand our options, explained different scenarios, and kept us informed throughout the entire process. At one point, Jim took my weekend phone call, despite being away at his son's wedding! This speaks to the level of commitment and service they offer. Jim is well connected in our area's real estate market,...

We had a great experience with Guaranteed Rate which was due to the efforts of Stephanie Zakos. She made herself easily available throughout the process. I always felt like I could ask for clarification when I was unclear about something. She was incredibly supportive and I would recommend her to anyone looking to refinance or get a mortgage!

Mark Barrere was great with the entire process. Very knowledgeable and courteous. He even stopped by the house after we closed on it and made sure we were OK and didn't have any questions or concerns. He went above and beyond to help us and we are now his customers for life. Thank you Mark!
