Marcelo Barahona was our loan officer. From day one, he has provided top notch customer service to us. He has the natural talent connecting with people and at the same time has a customer-centric attitude. He is the biggest reason why Guaranteed Rate stood out among all the choices we had when shopping for a mortgage. Thank you, Guaranteed Rate, for a great transaction.

Nick Dokken and his team was great! He made this loan happen when other companies could not. He went the extra mile. It was also very easy to upload and sign documents. Your system saved tons of time.

Brendan Harrison, and the entire GR team (Michael Yi and Khoi Vo included) were on top of everything throughout the entire process. They are truthful and honest, and delivered on their promises. When ever I needed clarification the entire team was there to help. Out of all the mortgage transactions I have had, this had to be the smoothest one yet.

Albert S. | 11/14/2016

Nick was fantastic. He got back to me timely and always kept me in the loop.

Gregory P. | Chicago, IL

My representative is Marcelo Barahona. In all my years dealing with mortgage companies including Quickens, I have never experienced such pleasure. Marcelo is personable, reachable and efficient. In addition, he is very knowledgeable. The others at Guaranteed Rate are also excellent.

Ming L. | 09/30/2016

Brendan Harrison was very helpful walking me through the whole process being I am first time home buyer. I called him a every time I had a question and he was always there ready to help. I learned a lot from Brendan during the process and now I more informed home buyer. Would highly recommend Guaranteed rate and Brendan Harrison.

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!
