Jamie was great! He was incredibly responsive and his costs were very transparent and fair. He helped us get a great very competitive rate and worked with us to achieve our quick close timeline. The process was very, very easy, even for first time home buyers like us. We would definitely recommend him!

Jamie was great! He reached out quickly and was very efficient in helping us secure a mortgage. Working with underwriters can be a ton of back and forth but the process was smooth and streamlined!

Ben Cohen and his mortgage team were professional, responsive, and helpful throughout the mortgage process in helping me buy my first home. Starting with prequalification through closing, Ben Cohen was there to help make sure that the entire process was smooth and organized. I would recommend Ben Cohen of Guaranteed Rate to any buyer, first time or veteran.

Tom Fishwick was absolutely outstanding. Tom communicated very well and response time to questions were answered immediately & equally as quick, Tom returns phone calls. He sets a standard for his entire team to follow!

There were no surprises. GR was so ahead of the game that the HUD was completed prior to the closing!!! This was just a great experience.Absolutely would use Jamie and his team at GR again and would recommend anybody I knew who is shopping for a mortgage to Jamie. Thanks everybody!

Rudy is an amazing Loan Officer. I'm a Real Estate Agent so I've experienced many different loan officers and Rudy is by far, the best one I've encountered. So of course, it made sense for me to use the best in my own home purchase transaction. :)

[The mortgage process] was excellent, everything was great. [We] had never gone through this process before, initially were going through Chase and our agent recommended Jamie and Guaranteed Rate. The service was very fast and handled in a much more timely manner compared to Chase. The experience was very personalized. Jamie and Liz came through in a very short amount of time and never gave up even at times when we were ready to.
Hani was extremely patient, informative, and helpful. Excellent customer service.
Danielle R., June 2016

Guaranteed Rate Office in Chicago, ILOur 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!
