Ben Cohen and his team were top notch. So professional, and knowledgable on any question we had about the process. And most important ...fast when we needed them to be. Thanks for everything.

I have worked with Drew and his team in the past and they continue to deliver excellent results and customer service on my most recent home loan. I will continue referring Guaranteed Rate to friends and family.
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.

Mr. Scott Sidkey is my contact with Guaranteed Rate and is the reason i come back. I had people recommending other Loan companies/officers and or better rate and here I am my second purchase within the last three years through Mr. Scott Sidkey. This is in addition to my previous positive experience in 2011. Scott is extremely experienced, excellent and timely follow up, very much to the point while being very professional. What I noticed that those traits are within his team too, which speaks a...

Ian is great helping first time buyers understand the mortgage process. Most importantly Ian always gets the best rate. That is why I have used him myself.

Mike, Kim, and Savannah are amazing to work with. I have purchased three homes and refinanced one of them all using Mike and his team. I'm always amazed at how easy the process is and how helpful everyone at GR is.

Very easy experience. So much better than Chase or even Wintrust. The asset verification was so simple.

In the end, our loan officer bent over backward to make a last minute change to the loan due to our other house not selling prior to the new home purchase. That effort went above and beyond our expectations. Some of the up front estimating was off by more than I expected - I wish the estimate had been closer than $14,000 delta between the estimate and final closing number, as I liquidated assets I did not need to liquidate to meet the final estimate.

We’ve used Ed Valadez for a number of loans and refinancing and wouldn’t go to anyone else.

Drew was great! I felt very comfortable with him and I trust him!

“Susan Cooley was very knowledgeable and was quick to respond to my questions and concerns. Susan and her team were able to provide me with a low rate for my first mortgage. I had heard so many horror stories from first time home buyers but this was a very good experience for me. They were even able to provide me with an itemized list of the closing costs so I could budget appropriately in advance. They were very easy to work with and I will happily recommend them to friends/family!”

Mike was one of my all time favorite people to work with. He is very direct and to the point which I really mesh well with. Even though the whole mortgage process is brutal, he made this entire process relatively painless!

Chris Woods was great; highly recommend him to anyone wanting to refinance their mortgage.
Elizabeth C. – Chicago, IL | Sep. 2015
Patty Dalkos was absolutely amazing. She was easy to contact, thorough and listened to all of my requests and questions attentively. As long as I live in Chicago I will use Patty in the future for all home financing!

Laura and Monique were awesome. Refinancing with Guaranteed rate was so easy. If the rates go down again I know who I'll be using, "Guaranteedrate.com"!

It was so great to work with Jourden. I was recommended to him by my cousin who used him for a home purchase and said he was the go-to guy for a mortgage. I used him for a home purchase as well and he was great. He was very knowledgeable, responsive, and caring. Being a first time home buyer, I was nervous but Jourden took the time to make sure we really understood the whole loan process which definitely helped me feel better about the process. I absolutely recommend Jourden!

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.

Throughout the year, we also cheer on our other local teams, the Chicago Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and Fire.
