Jim Golotko and his team were extremely wonderful to work with. They answered any questions my wife or I had very quickly. If we ever need to refer someone or need another loan we’ll definitely be in contact with Jim.

Joseph G. | August 2018

Jim and his team were phenomenal! My wife and I were first time home buyers and we had so many questions about everything! The team was always willing to answer even our “dumbest” questions and in a very timely manner. Nothing but professional in all aspects of the process!

John M. - July | 2018

Jim was great, the only trouble we had was trying to close on the house with the title company.

Edward C. | July 2018

Jim and his team were extremely helpful and made the process as easy as could be. They were there to answer all my questions and I felt very prepared going into the closing.

Jim Golotko and Daniel Kirby were amazing. They answered every question and helped me every step of the way. They returned all my emails and text messages as well as phone calls.

Jeffrey C. | May 2018

I had the true pleasure of working with Jim Golotko, and words can not describe my satisfaction with all hard work Jim and the team at Guaranteed rate put in to make this possible for my husband and I! I am grateful for the countless hours and hard work that were put in to stay on target with the closing date! Being a first-time home buyer, I was scared and nervous about the process and not sure about what I needed to do on my end. Once I started working with Jim and the team, they made it so...

Jim went far and beyond any other loan offers I've worked with. He took the time to go through everything I needed. Awesome guy!

David R. | February 2018

Jim Golotko was amazing! He made this homebuying process easy. I never thought getting a loan would be as easy as he made it. He got it done and educated me on the loan process and types of loans. Him and his team were so easy to work with. Thanks again, Jim. I will make sure to refer everyone I know to Guaranteed Rate!

James G. | November 2017

Jim Golotko and his team were very helpful and answered any question I had. Very pleased with the job they did. Jim's team included Alicia Golotko, Jessica Brightman, and Jesse Rocha.

Jeffrey B. | October 2017

Jim Golotko worked with my wife and I every step of the way. He explained everything clearly and even attended our closing. I will certainly recommend him to my family, friends and colleagues.

Joshua H. | September 2017

Jim started working with my husband and I about a year ago. He assessed our credit, listened to our wants, and gave us honest advice on how to improve our credit to qualify for a home loan. Here we are a year later, as Jim projected, and we closed on our first home with a VA mortgage last week. We couldn't be happier!

Robert M. | September 2017

Jim A+++++, and his team was top notch I will keep them in mind again, along with passing his card around for future clients.

Adam D. - 6/13/17
