Michael C.

The process was very easy and simple. Everything was explained upfront as to what we needed to do and how the process works. Overall a very happy customer and new homeowner!

Curt K. | September 2017

Natasha was amazing. Her communication and knowledge of this process simply made it easy compared to purchasing my first home. I couldn't believe after submitting docs how quickly I was approved. Almost did not believe it! THANK YOU GREATLY to Natasha and team!!

Ashley J. | October 2017

An awesome experience. Natasha and her team was the best.

LaTosha L. - Chicago, IL

Natasha and her entire team were wonderful, professional, fast, and efficient!!!!

Lola H. - Chicago, IL

A 203K loan is a complex loan BUT Ben Cohen and his renovation team led by Ronald Peake are a "mortgage dream team" that made the process easy! I will most definitely keep them top of mind for future lending needs. Thank you all!

Agustin L. | October 2017

I just wanted to send you and your team a quick note to thank you for all of your hard work and effort on the Smith loan. This loan definitely presented many roadblocks, but you went above and beyond to get this one to the closing table. I’m so appreciative as are the clients. Thank you again and I look forward to creating more success together in the near future!

Margaret W. - @Properties | October 2017

Shelly Ave and her team were very informative and patient with me, since I was a first time home buyer and was very anxious! Shelly was great!

Harry P. | September 2017

I would like to thank Christine Depaepe and her team. We just closed on a Home Renovation loan. They made this process easy for us. I appreciate the responsiveness and willingness to help. I will definitely use their services should I need them in the future. I want to again thank Christine Depaepe, Courtney Crary, Makena Levine, Sadie Morales and Joe DiLucchio.

Angie W. | October 2017

I've heard nothing but nightmare stories about how impossible a 203K loan is. Mike/Ron and the whole team got us to close and we never once worried about losing the deal. We are grateful for the hard work this team or in for us.

Philip M. | Crown Point, IN

Everyone I worked with at Guaranteed Rate was extremely efficient and consistent throughout the process. Communication was always clear and patience was practiced when necessary. The online signatures were very convenient! Overall I am extremely satisfied and glad I chose Guaranteed Rate!

Channing M. | September 2017

We were referred by a friend, and, as first-time home-buyers, we walked into Christine DePaepe's office not knowing much of anything about what we needed to be doing... but she helped walk us through the process and gave us some direction, and even though we were under contract three times, with a couple of deals falling through, she and her team continued to work with us until we finally found the right home. We feel confident that we got a great deal, thanks to Chris and everyone on her team!

Adam G. | September 2017

Christine DePaepe and her team were very diligent and helpful throughout the process of our construction loan. Guaranteed Rate always excels in their service. We highly recommend anyone to do business with them.

Marcus M. | Chicago, IL

I felt the team at Guaranteed Rate went over and beyond to help with my special circumstances and get everything taken care of in the most expeditious way possible. Thank you!

Sarah C.| Cincinnati, OH

Christine and her team were dedicated and thorough. They worked hard with me every step of the way. It was a long process due to a variety of things, but they were patient and helpful and for that I'm very grateful and couldn't have asked for a better team. Thank you!

Theodis T. | Chicago, IL

The team at Guaranteed Rate made the stressful process of purchasing a home such a pleasant experience. They were there to answer every question and concern I had, usually in minutes via e-mail or immediately over the phone. I was shocked at how available and responsive they were. Michele Stanisch and Ron Peake were incredible to work with, personable and knowledgeable. I have already tried to get my brother who is in the process of a 203K loan to ditch his process and start again with...

Nathan M. - August | 2017

Chris and her Team made the 203k home renovation loan so easy! I was on my third mortgage lender for renovation loan and they made it happen so quickly and efficiently!

Cassandra M. | August 2017

Chris and her team in the renovation department were wonderful. Without their help and guidance, I do not believe that we would have made it through this process. Now to get the work done and invite them all to our housewarming!

Greg B. | Chicago, IL

I just wanted personally thank you for making my first home buying experience absolutely amazing. I always wanted to buy a house, but I kept on putting it off because of the horror stories I always heard. Low and behold, it was an absolute breeze and I owe so much to each one of you. Thank you for your hard work and extra hours you put into completing my loan and making my closing a breeze. You have an amazing team at Guaranteed Rate and anyone I run into that is purchasing a house in the...
