Ryan was amazing. He found more creative ways than I ever knew were possible for my mortgage to happen. Without Ryan's knowledge and personal commitment I know that I would not be a home owner today. Thank you Ryan.

James C. - Chicago, IL | MAY 2017

Guaranteed Rate made the mortgage process a breeze. Within 40 minutes of my initial application, I had a pre-approval letter sitting in my inbox, ready to send to our real estate agent. Ryan was INCREDIBLE to work with. He answered all of my questions and even ran multiple hypothetical scenarios to help me make an informed mortgage product choice. I have nothing but praise for Ryan and his team. Thanks Guaranteed Rate for upgrading the mortgage process to the digital age.

Jacob J. - Orland Park, IL | MAY 2017

Thanks Ryan! That was the easiest refinance ever. We really appreciate everything and we will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to refinance or purchase a new home.

Heath H. - McKinney, TX | APR 2017

Experience could not of been easier. I never knew refinancing could be so easy. Ryan was very nice to work with and his response time was fantastic. I have already recommended Guaranteed Rate to others.

Elizabeth F. - Elmhurst, IL | APR 2017

Gregory S. | 08/31/2016

My experience with guaranteed rate was the best my loan officer was absolutely wonderful Amanda do a wonderful job I would recommend her in your company to anybody.

Stephen K. | 08/31/2016

Amanda Marquet and her team made the process very comfortable Very professional group of people, would gladly use them again.

Marilyn S. | 08/30/2016

I appreciate the thoroughness of my loan team. From the beginning with Will Hughes to the end with Amanda Marquet, and everyone in between-- I knew what was taking place, why documents were requested, what I needed to do and when. The transparency in language from everyone helped me feel a part of the loan process (whereas in the past with mortgage loans I felt very uninformed and disconnected). I am glad I went with Guaranteed Rate!

Fenesha H. | 09/02/2016

The folks at Guaranteed Rate rock! I've probably bought and sold over 30 homes for either me personally or as investments in the last 20 years, and I've never experienced the great customer service, communication, and honesty that I just had with Guaranteed Rate. I feel like I was lucky to get Will Hughes as my account manager. He and every member of his team were attentive, knowledgeable, and quick to get things done. I threw several curves at them - came to them with 25 days to close and they...

David - LendingTree Review | APR 2017

Karen Bivans was incredibly helpful through the loan process. She was transparent and made sure all details were understood by me before I committed to anything. I highly recommend her!

Sagar S. | 05/05/2017

I'm happy I closed. The Loan Officer went above and beyond (Karen Bivens was great).

Stephen F. - Mansfield, MA | APR 2017

Karen Bivans was a pleasure to work with and answered all our questions.

Randal S. - Venice, FL | APR 2017

The level of customer service throughout the entire that I received from both Karen Bivans and Isabel Calderon were exceptional!!! It was them who you need to acknowledge for the high scores I provided.

Christopher K. - Harvard, MA | MAR 2017

The team (Karen and Diana) were very easy to work with and kept the process moving forward. I was very satisfied overall and have already referred another colleague whom is preparing to close their loan in the next few days.

Joseph B. - North Fort Myers | FEB 2017

Karen Bivins made the refinance process very quick and easy. She moved the process forward by keeping me informed as to what was expected, as well as the amount of time I had to transmit documents inorder to achieve a quick refinance. She answered my questions quickly and professionally, even when I needed more clarification and questioned her over and over, until I understood what was needed and why. Ms. Bivins conveyed a trustworthy enviornment, from which I felt very comfortable transmitting...

Samuel B. - Vancouver, WA | NOV 2016

I loved working my loan officer!

Mary M. - Marion, AL | DEC 2016

Karen Bivans is the loan officer and she was great and very responsive.

Laura K. - Chicago, IL | APR 2017

I would especially like to thank Jessica and Collette for their assistance.

Matthew S. | 04/28/2017

The entire process was extremely organized, efficient and quick. Jessica Moreno did an outstanding job of answering any questions we had and I would highly recommend her and Guaranteed Rate to everyone.

We have a philosophy to “lend where we live” and our Cuyler Street office has been originating loans in the Chicago area since 2013. Our office is right down the street from the Corporate office, in an urban loft space. In our market, we know that FHA, VA, Conventional and Jumbo loans are important to you and we are not only dedicated to meeting those needs, but also are armed with a full array of loan products, so that we can meet all of your lending needs. We work with a national footprint and as a result, borrowers will always receive immediate responses on loan inquiries.

We are excited to have Guaranteed Rate’s World’s First Digital Mortgage at our disposal as it is invaluable to both clients and realtors because of the ease of application, security and speed. It allows clients to choose their own loan type, receive free credit scores from all three bureaus, securely upload and digitally sign their loan documents then receive a real online approval!

We have a work hard, play hard mentality at the Cuyler office. We put the customers first, and love to reward our team for doing so. We even took an office outing to iFly for some indoor skydiving. Here in Chicago, we’re never short on attractions. We look forward to the Blues Festival each year and Guaranteed Rate even walks in Chicago’s famous St. Patrick’s Day parade. We also love all of our local sports teams – Go Bears, Bulls, White Sox, Cubs, Blackhawks, Fire and Sky!

While it is important that our office has fun, we also are dedicated to giving back. We regularly support both the GR Foundation and the City of Lights. We love Chicago and are always interested in learning about new ways we can give back to our community!

So, if you’re looking for new career opportunities, start with us! We hire the best of the best and are looking for tenacious salespeople with the spirit to win in a lead based environment.
