Ryan Richardson is one of the best in this business. It was a great experience to have gone through my mortgage process with him.

Arjun M. - Los Angeles, CA | JUN 2017

My wife and I were having the worst luck finding a responsive reliable mortgage broker. Ryan Richardson made the whole process simple and easy. He was available throughout the whole process (including weekends). He answered all our questions. He was polite, professional and courteous. Given the experience I had working with both Ryan and his colleague Diana Foster, I would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate.

Michael M. - Plymouth, MA | JUN 2017

Guaranteed Rate made refinancing easy. Our Loan Officer, Ryan Richardson, was super communicative and really went the extra mile. He took his time to explain things for us and explain some options for our fixed 15 year refinance. He really made the whole process feel smooth for us and has exceptional customer service. I have been singing Guaranteed Rate's praises to friends and Ryan is a big part of that.

Barbara W. - Chicago, IL | MAY 2017

Ryan was a great help through the entire process. He kept me up to date through the entire process and really made sure things went as smooth as possible.

Richard B. - Harrisburg, PA | MAY 2017

Ryan was great to work with. I will definitely recommend him to friends looking to obtain a mortgage.

Kevin W. - Chicago, IL| MAY 2017

Ryan Richardson was my loan officer. He was superman in the way he found ways creatively to make it possible for me to get a mortgage. I will ever be grateful to him for his knowledge dedication and considerate attitude. I cannot say enough about this young man. It was wonderful. Only because of his efforts I saw my dream of ownership come true.

James C. - Chicago, IL | MAY 2017

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

Will Hughes and Brianna Buck were both amazing people to work with. I appreciate all the help they gave us

Gerald S. | 05/22/2017

Got an excellent rate, Will made the process very transparent and easy to obtain a loan for my first home.

Zachary S. | 05/26/2017

The services of your staff were extremely satisfying.

Lisa H. | 05/25/2017

My loan officer, Nick Dokken, was prompt, courteous, and answered all my questions. He was very helpful and clear in his explanation of loan terms and conditions. The only hiccup was with the one part of the process he did not control, the appraisal. It was scary faxing all that personal information "just off into space" and not have a person to hand it to, but Nick and his whole team made the process easy and quick, and had the best rate as well!

Jill G. | 05/23/2017

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

Chas and the whole team were amazing to work with. Not only are they all knowlegeble and helpful but made a process with the stigma of being a nightmare an experience that left me feeling at ease because I was confident in their care.

Stephanie L. - 6/19/2017

Our loan officer George Compton was very attentive and responsive. He immediately answered all of our questions and did his best to accommodate our requests. We have been very busy so he always sent reminders for what he needed from us and provided clear, easy-to-understand instructions. I felt confident that he was taking care of everything that needed to be done.

Jessica F. | 05/24/2017

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

Matthew S. | 04/28/2017

Awesome experience! Made everything go smooth and extremely nice people willing to help with any questions!

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!

Our branch is looking to grow its production by utilizing our Liftoff program to train new loan officers and maximize their growth curve. 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. It is our goal to become the #1 lender in the Chicago market, and we annually host our own GR Palooza, a big event to get our name out around town. Come grow with us!
