Tony Piotrowski was AWESOME! He was clear, concise, and on point with everything we needed to do. He was more than professional and very friendly and helpful. I will definitely use him for future needs!

I had yet another wonderful experience working with Guaranteed Rate to secure my mortgage. Tony was an incredible thought partner throughout and his associate, Rina, was efficient and very knowledgeable. They were always available and quick to respond to any questions I had during the process. I highly recommend both for any lending needs!

Tony Piotrowski was exceptionally helpful and and responsive during the entire process. He understood our concerns and priorities, he we out of his way to resolve any questions or issues we had (even if it meant working outside of normal business hours), and he made us feel like we were more than "just another customer". He was also very knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. I would recommend Tony to anyone looking for assistance with a mortgage.

I worked with Tony Piotrowski, and being a first time home buyer I was kind of nervous and didn't know what to expect but Tony made every thing so easy for me and was there for me every step of the way with what ever I needed and seemed very eager to answer any questions I had. Every time I talked to Tony he said "don't hesitate to call me". Just want to say thank you to Tony for making the process so easy for me!!
