Christopher W. | August 2018
This process was simple and straight-forward. Unlike other lenders we were not continually asked to provide the same documentation repeatedly. We were very happy with how quickly and easily the loan took from start to finish. The loan officer Matthew was available when needed, but not overbearing. We had a previous poor experience with a lender that made numerous promises, even in writing, and then as closing approached changed the deal in dramatic fashion, which caused us to eventually decide...

Guaranteed Rate Office in Chicago, ILWe 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.

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!
