Working with Ben Cohen and his team was great. They made everything as easy as possible, and were very transparent throughout the whole process. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to obtain a loan.

Y Dov F. - Airmont, NY | MAR 2017

My experience with each and every representative and individual that I dealt with, was extremely positive and always a pleasure to deal with! I wasn't positive that I would be eligible for a loan but guaranteed rate made everything easy and possible! I highly recommend using guaranteed rate!

Yisroel K. - Cincinnati, OH | MAR 2017

Hani and the rest of the team were always available and responsive to my questions. I'm a first time home buyer and the entire Guaranteed Rate team made it as simple as possible for me! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage lender.

Cindy Koutsovitis not only helped me get my home she helped me get the home of my dreams. I truly have not enough words to describe how incredible professional she was. She made every single step so ease, I would definitely strongly recommend her in the future. Thank you again for your help.

Nicolas J.- Chicago, IL I 3/8/17

Drew was great through my whole loan process. I am not very computer savvy and he walked me through all processes. He and his team were helpful and knowledgeable throughout the loan. I would gladly use them again and recommend them to anyone in need of a mortgage or refinance.

Michael L. 1/31/2017

The team at Guaranteed Rate in Drew Boland's office went above and beyond to answer questions that I had. It was a smooth process. I would recommend them to anyone!

Great use of technology and easy to understand process. Before the loan, Drew was great in providing estimates with excel docs and quick to answer any questions.

Patrick D. 2017

This is my first time acquiring a loan, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I thought the whole process was pretty easy. Drew and his staff were very professional and answered all my questions that I had as the process went along. We are satisfied with our monthly payment and there were no real issues along the way.

Dave Caldwell helped me so much during the process. As a first home buyer I had a lot of questions and he walked me through the whole process as many times as I needed. He was always super fast to answer my texts and calls and.always replied promptly to our emails and questions.

We really enjoyed how nice everyone was and how easy they were to talk to! We had so many questions and someone was always able to answer them and answer fast! It was nice having a whole team of people because if one was busy or sick we always had someone else to call. We also love how easy it was to upload papers online.

Travis K. – 3/3/2017

Matthew Kennedy was fantastic to work with. During the three-month process of selling our condo and purchasing a new condo Matt routinely checked in with us. Twice on a minute's notice he made himself available for a conference call with my spouse and me when we had questions about our transaction. He had answers for all of our questions. His professionalism and friendly attitude typify our experience with Matt. The rest of the team was friendly and supportive also. Our experience with...

Gregory W. - Chicago, IL | Feb 2017

"Leslie is the “dream team” of mortgage lending services, simple as that. There is no one better. She, Ramon, and the rest of her team are a well-oiled machine, truly remarkable professionals with extensive knowledge of the lending landscape. Leslie and her team seamlessly handled all aspects of the lending process for me from start to finish. I will only work with Leslie in the future and have already recommended her to many of my closest personal contacts and business associates."

Nikolaos A. - 3/9/17

I purchased a 2-flat without realtors involved. This added much pressure on my end, and I do not think I could have done this without Mike Dye and his team. They guided me through the process with ease, efficiency, professionalism and kindness. Mike and his team always dealt with my questions and concerns with compassion too. I always felt like I was important to them. I can't remember the last time I have had this kind of consistent, incredible service. I loved being informed each step of the...

Hillary K. - March 2017

Scott was fantastic to work with. He was always ready and willing to answer and questions we had, no matter how simple they may have been. This was out first time buying a home and it couldn't have been made any easier.

Dylan M. | 03/24/2017

I had such a wonderful experience with Scott my loan officer. He made everything so easy. He is very knowledge and efficient. I cant believe how easy he made this and the communication was amazing. He was quick to respond to any questions I had. I'm already spreading the word about how amazing Guaranteed Rate is.

Our Chicago office is where Guaranteed Rate opened its doors to start originating loans in 2000. Our corporate location is in a restored timber loft on Chicago’s north side, with a large roof deck that has breathtaking views of the city. At Guaranteed Rate, we believe that creative workspaces help to facilitate collaboration among our employees.

In our market, we know that Conforming, VA, FHA and Jumbo loans are important to you and we are dedicated to meeting those needs. We also know that Chicago serves all markets and have a full array of loan products at our disposal, so that we can meet all of your lending needs. Our branch is dedicated to providing unparalleled levels of customer service and professionalism.

We are proud to have Guaranteed Rate’s World’s First Digital Mortgage for our clients and realtors. Our revolutionary Digital Mortgage process allows our clients to spend at least half the amount of time completing an application than old paper applications required.

We have a work hard, play hard mentality here in Chicago. We put the customers first, and love to reward our team for doing so. While the weather may be unpredictable throughout the year, this is the best city in America in the summers and we love to enjoy it! We look forward to getting outside for local events from neighborhood festivals and Lollapalooza to baseball games – with a crosstown rivalry between Cubs and Sox fans! Throughout the year, we also cheer on our other local teams, the Chicago Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and Fire.

While it is important that our office has fun and each team member loves their job, we also are dedicated to giving back. We hold an annual BBQ, Bourbon and Blues event that raised over $50,000 for the GR Foundation. We also hold a company-wide food drive that donated over 46,000 pounds of food and personal care items to our branch’s local charities. We are always interested in learning about new ways we can give back to our community!

Every year as a “thank you” to our referral partners, we host more than 1,000 guests at “GRPalooza”, which is a concert with local bands. It has become such a success here in Chicago that our Guaranteed Rate offices around the country host GRPaloozas of their own.

As a top lender in the Chicago market, our branch is looking to exponentially grow its production this year. So, if you’re looking for new career opportunities, start with us. We hire the best of the best and are looking for professional, knowledgeable and fun people. Come grow with us!
