Hani, Bethani and Susan were fantastic in helping me close a re-finance very quickly and efficiently. I would use their services again without question.

Conan Z. | 04/11/2017

Had a great experience! I've already referred multiple friends and plan to use Guaranteed Rate again in the future.

Jeremy P. | 05/04/2017

Hani and his team were amazing! I felt they always had my best interest in mind and the entire team was pro-active and clear with their communication.

Jay S. | 04/24/2017

We spoke with three lenders when we began our mortgage process. From the get-go, Cindy K. was straightforward, easy to work with and highly knowledgeable. She has 15 years of lending experience, and it truly shows. Above all, she was honest, managed our expectations, and we could easily get in touch with her. Guaranteed Rate's flexibility with our closing date/time (at such short notice!) was a huge stress reliever. Last, but not least, Cindy and a GRate associate attended our closing and...

Katelynn B.-- Chicago, IL 4/21/17

Cindy K was so knowledgeable and patient and answered all my questions. I would use them again.

Gulsen S- Des Plaines, IL 5/8/17

I was able to close the unit on time and move on time. Thanks a lot for your help. The loan application process has been very smooth and everyone at Guaranteed Rate has been responding in a very timely manner. I will refer Guaranteed Rate to all my friends who are looking to buy a place.

Govind C. -- Chicago, IL - 5/7/17

Larry Steinway and his team were top notch. My attorney even commented on how smooth the closing was, and attributed it to Larry and his team's responsiveness and organization. Would highly recommend!

Curt M. | 04/27/2017

Many thanks to Scott Sidkey for making this process as painless and strait-forward as possible.

Christian L. – 5/9/2017

This is the 2nd time I've used Guaranteed Rate and John Mooney makes the process very seamless. Thank you!

Stephanie S. | 04/27/2017

Had three week turn around time you guys made it happen. Great job. Really appreciated all the effort put forth.

Phillip P. - Chicago, IL | MAY, 2017

Laura is fantastic! Quick, thorough, professional, a pleasure to work with, and hands down got me the best rate possible on two homes I purchased through her. She was available by phone or email anytime of day (even at night) and the rates and terms she quoted were more competitive than any other lender. Her team members were equally nice, responsive, and professional, and Guaranteed Rate's site was easy to use. Laura gave me updates throughout the process and was a calming presence in a...

Mary L.- 3/2/17

I am a very seasoned real estate professional and Laura could not have been any easier to work with. I will be seeking to work with her again in the future. The fees for the level of service was unmatched in my years is finance.

Jeffery J.- 5/15/17

We worked with Scott Schneiderman and his team throughout the loan process. He really made it easy and during the initial loan application process he spent about an hour with me on the phone getting all of our information, answering questions, and providing guidance. He was always able to answer any questions we had in a timely manner and kept us in constant communication about what to expect throughout the process, as we were first time home buyers. Scott was also able to attend our closing,...

Tanya W. | 5/1/2017

I don't have enough superlatives to use to thank you! My mortgage banker, Kyle Perks, was fantastic throughout the process! His communication and professionalism was top notch. I went through the full pre-approval process for my condo in the city. It was a quick process and helped me negotiate a lower purchase price. The sellers had recently had an offer fall through and were happy to see my full approval. The process was seamless and I move in tomorrow! Thank you Kyle and Co.!

- John K - Funded August 2016

Great service and consistent approach to the mortgage process. Communication throughout the process was appropriate. I would recommend Kyle and team to anyone looking for personalized service.

- HL R - Funded July 2016

Kyle Perks did a fantastic job on my VA re-fi. He explained everything, followed through with everything to ensure a prompt closing with a great rate. I would highly rate Kyle for a VA re-fi. He is a nice guy too!

- Darian K - Funded May 2016

Kyle Perks and his team were tremendous to work with on my refinance. I had a ton of questions along the way and John was great about answering each of them as well as providing me with options to consider. He's clearly a knowledgeable, straightforward and honest guy. And big thanks to his team for helping me stay organized and on track all the way to the close.

- Elizabeth K - Funded February 2016

Kyle has been there for my family during the purchase of our first home as a married couple, a refinance as rates fell and the purchase of my parents' retirement home. Through it all he and his team have communicated exceptionally well (as a business owner obtaining a home loan is not as just sending in a W2) and put my wife and I at ease. I have recommended Kyle to several friends and clients and will continue to do so without hesitation. Thank you for all your help!

- Natalie K. - Funded September 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 Kyle Perks. The difference was like night and day. Kyle 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. - Funded October 2016

Kyle Perks was outstanding. Even my attorney commented how exceptionally responsive and knowledgeable he was. Kyle was instrumental to a smooth closing. Thanks again Kyle!!

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!
