Hani Ali was very helpful and great. I was denied by another firm and Hani was able to help with a lower rate.

Juan V. - Funded 7/31/17

Thanks for your good services. Hani and his team did an excellent job with me. I will refer my friend to deal with you as well. Thanks

Oodamah M. - August | 2017

Hani and his team were great!

Hakeem J. - July | 2017

Hani and his team were great at helping us through a very difficult process. I didn't think it was going to be possible, but in the end, all the pieces came together for us. We love our new home.

David M. | July 2017

Excellent service!

Vladimir M. | July 2017

Sarah and I wanted to write to say thank you for your help and service in this loan and apartment purchase process. You and your team were efficient, knowledgeable and reliably great throughout, making this whole thing easier than we could have imagined - thank you!

Mike Bernatz & Sarah Resimius – 08/08/2017

Dave Caldwell, SVP, assisted my partner and I in obtaining our mortgage for our new home. This new construction purchase was complicated mainly due to construction and city inspection delays, but Dave and his team did an outstanding job in keeping us in the loop by providing useful periodic updates at appropriate times throughout the entire process. They also made sure that we were able to close as soon as possible and without any issues. Thanks again, Dave. I'll be sure to use you again on our...

Mike Damian - 7/28/2017

Dave Caldwell and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the start, Dave made us feel like he wanted to earn our business without being pushy. Where other banks simply did the required work to get us a quote, Dave made himself available for additional questions and insights, and made a very sound mortgage proposal we ended up taking. Without their help, we would not be in the home we are in today. Please take note of their exceptional performance. Because of them, we will...

Ulises S. – 06/15/17

Dave Caldwell and his team did a fabulous job. Best service I ever received for a mortgage.

Perry N. – 06/17/17

Cindy K. and her team were ridiculously fast, friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure all the paperwork was in-order and on-time and that I understood the process from start-to-finish! I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a home loan!

Derek S. | July 2017

Dave and his team were very easy to work with and made everything clear throughout the entire process.

Ankur P. – 05/15/17

I can't say enough good things about Oren Orkin and Jenna Miller - made the process extremely smooth, painless, and FAST. I will be sure to recommend Guaranteed Rate to others. Thank you very much!

Laura L. – 7/28/2017

This was my fifth mortgage experience and by far the best. Everything is well explained. You're online system is awesome! The loan officer, Scott, was great. His team was attentive and just lovely to work with.

Cecil D. – 8/11/2017

A great team who made my first-time buying a home simple and straight forward!

Lyndsay D. - Chicago, IL | AUG 2017

Our agent Gladys Jimenez was fantastic to work with. She clearly explained each step in the process, she clearly knows the business and kept everyone else on track by providing updates throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond her duties and everyone enjoyed working with her. By everyone I am including the attorneys and realtors. This is my second time working with Gladys and I would use her again and recommend her to my friends.

Melissa S. | August 2017

Scott Schneidermen was the best communicator I have ever worked with his style of handling people and situations should be used as the industry standard I have already recommended him to 4 other families he treated us and handled our issues so well I could not compliment him enough and his team enough and no I don't know him other than as our loan officer. I deal with people and situations all day everyday and really appreciated his knowledge, professionalism, and expertise but with him there's...

Jamie R. | 08/04/2017

The process was very quick and easy, and everyone involved was extremely informative and quick to respond. I had originally obtained a pre-approval from QuickenLoans before I was referred to Guaranteed Rate. Working with a loan officer at Quicken loans left me feeling like I couldn't trust what I was being told. This was my first home-buying experience and I needed to feel like every piece of information was being presented very clearly and honestly - which I did not get with Quicken (I felt...

Megan S. | July 2017

The process was quick and easy, and everyone involved was extremely informative and quick to respond. The portal was, of course, a huge bonus to this process, it was wonderful to see every step. But that wasn't the deciding factor in choosing my loan company. I had originally obtained a pre-approval from QuickenLoans before I was referred to Guaranteed Rate. Working with a loan officer at Quickenloans left me feeling like I couldn't trust what I was being told. This was my first home-buying...

Meghan S. 7/28/17

Patrick was very enjoyable to work with, and he was also very hardworking and eager to explain all of the terminology and procedures involved in the home-buying process. As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot to learn, and I was glad to have Patrick to clarify things at each step along the way. He was always available--even in the evening and on weekends--to field questions and provide guidance on a wide variety of home-buying issues, so working with Patrick was like having a second realtor....

Peter R.

Kyle Perks was great to work with and made our first home buying experience enjoyable. Him and his team were incredibly efficient and kept us in the loop on all steps through great communication. I will for sure be recommending them to others and will look to use them again in the future.

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!
