Hani went above and beyond to secure a loan for us. He was knowledgeable and prompt in answering questions and resolving issues as they arose. We are so grateful to have been able to work with him!

Oren and his team were helpful, always quick to reply, and very up front and honest. As first time homebuyers, my fiancé and I asked a LOT of questions and needed a LOT of clarification and support. Our team consistently went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. Special shout outs to Oren and Jenna, the two we worked with the most extensively. Thank you Guaranteed Rate!

: All of my questions were answered quickly and thoroughly, and I could tell customer service and truly getting their clients the lowest rates were top priorities. We even closed a week earlier than expected! Thank you!

Larry Steinway and his team are absolutely incredible. They made the process so easy, and walked me through every step. Larry himself is accessible almost 24/7 265, which really shows his commitment to his customers. Thanks for a great experience. As an investor, I will be coming back over and over again.

Brian Budd did an amazing job helping us choose the right loan and moving our application through the steps extremely quickly. We were very satisfied with the level of responsiveness and detailed explanations throughout the entire process. Buying a house and applying for a loan can be one of the most stressful things you do, but we felt comfortable and stress free the whole time. Thanks for a great experience!

Anthony and David were great. They responded to my questions immediately while being both friendly and professional. They were the best and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to apply for a mortgage loan.

John T. | 1/27/2017

We worked mostly with Makena Levine and Brian Budd, and they were both STELLAR. We got excellent and prompt care every time we needed it, as well as a lot of patience with our anxiety and all of our questions. We feel so lucky to have had a team we could really trust on our side. Also, our appraisal came in short and caused an issue, and Brian basically did a back flip to make the loan still work. In the end, his new plan worked out even better than our original one. Of all of the parts of...

Catherine A. - Funded 8/3/2016

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!
