Ben Cohen & team made my refi stress free. I will recommend them to anyone I know who is looking to get a mortgage or refi.

Courtney -9/16

Ben and his team did a fantastic job. I went from loan app to closing is less than 30 days and we could've closed early had the seller's been ready. thanks again.


Thank you so much for everything that you and your team have done for us once again. I know that you all went above and beyond on more than one occasion and we really appreciated it! Just to let you know, when we met with the head supervisor at our community, Dan last week, he had nothing but the highest praise for your team. He said he had never worked with a more responsive, professional and easy team to work with. He works with a lot of mortgage companies and he said this was one the best...

Cathy- 10/16

April Ranallo and her team are very well organized from the first communication to closing. The recent technological enhancements made the process much faster and simpler.

Matthew K. | October 2016

I was extremely satisfied with the level of service received from April and her team. They all made the process smooth and easy. I will recommend April to anyone looking for mortgage assistance. In the future I will call Guaranteed Rate for services. Thank you for helping me obtain my new house!

Jennifer W. | October 2016

Recommended you to someone yesterday. Mary Kay Laurent was the best. She led me through confidently and assuredly, after my terrible experience with a big bank, that all would proceed with the utmost professionalism. Her insights and knowledge paved the way with excellent results. Thank you.

David Caldwell was the consummate professional and I would recommend him to anyone looking to finance or refinance a property. He was outstanding every step of the process.

Lee W.--Glencoe, IL - 10/17/2016

Dave Caldwell and his staff made the entire process very simple and smooth!

Sandra F. -- Chicago, IL - 10/14/2016

Mary Kay Laurent was the most professional loan officer I've worked with. And I'm in housing / real estate. The Guaranteed Rate online services are OUTSTANDING. It was professional, expedient and almost painless. THANK YOU

Cary S. | 10/6/16

I tried to refinance twice previously (with a broker and with Chase) before calling Dave. Dave and the rest of the GR team were head and shoulders above the other two options in terms of service and the rate and deal I received was competitive. As far as I am concerned there is no reason to ever deal with anyone else.

Allan F. -- Oak Park, IL - 10/14/2016

What an amazing experience from start to finish. My husband and I initially started with another lender but eventually left them due to their lack of urgency and consistency. Two weeks after we put in our offer we were referred over to John Moony. The difference was like night and day. John and his team took their time to explain the process to us and answer any questions we had as first time home buyers. They were always quick to respond and I never felt that I didn't know where we were at...

Kara S. | October 2016

Kyle and his team are absolute professionals and I would recommend them to anyone. From start to finish their communication and personal attention far exceeded my expectations! Even when adjustments needed to be made due to circumstances outside of their control, they worked quickly to be sure everything went smoothly and we were able to close on time.

Darren S. -- Chicago, IL 10/07/2016

I was in the mortgage business for over a decade. I know a lot about mortgages and loan officers. John and staff are true professionals and know what they are doing. I will be recommending them to anyone I run across who needs help with financing.

Natalie K. | 09/29/2016

The process was quick and easy. They asked for loan documents one time - I responded with them all and we got the loan. Easy to work with and very responsive.

Robert H. - Park Ridge, IL | Sept. 2016

My loan officer Gladys Jimenez was a great loan officer, she treated me with respect and her knowledge was outstanding. She made my buying experience a pleasant one .

Marta C. -CHICAGO,IL | SEP 2016

My team was phenomenal! The best mortgage experience a person could ever wish for.

Scott S. -Chicago,IL | SEP 2016

I have referred several people to Guaranteed Rate based on the positive experience I had financing and refinancing my home with Vanessa Keyes. She is smart, efficient and very helpful. Customer service like this keeps me working with a company.

Andrew Q. - Chicago,IL | SEP 2016

Vanessa worked very hard on my behalf and ensured she responded to my questions very quickly. The process was easy and the online documents completion was incredibly convenient. Vanessa is friendly and very professional; always reassuring and knowledgeable.

Elizabeth C. -Ypsilanti,MI | SEP 2016

Scott, my loan officer, was great throughout the entire process. He was very responsive and professional it was a pleasure doing business with him and your company. Thank you both for all your help. Scott was great!!!

Matthew R. | 09/27/2016

Greg Sabourin did an outstanding job!

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!
