Jeff Crain and his team were fantastic! First off, the interest rates from him are competitive to other lenders/banks. Second, he and his team were professional every step of the way but not the stern hurry up talk, they were very friendly and answered any questions I had and made time for me. Lastly, they worked very diligently to get everything in order even when forced into a last minute time crunch they still managed to put everything together in on time. Very great team and would...

I practiced as a real estate attorney in NJ for 24 years. When I moved to Florida, I didn't know any mortgage brokers. I spoke to several brokers and was not impressed. Luckily, my realtor referred me to Jeff Crain and he has been a God send. He never over promised anything and he spent a lot of time explaining how I could qualify for loans and how to improve my credit score. Other mortgage companies told me that I could not qualify because I am retired. Jeff assured me that this was not the...

Every step of the process was as easy as can be expected. I had many questions, and I felt like they were always answered right away, and the time was given to provide thorough explanations. I was always updated on the status of my loan, and it was easy to facilitate all requests electronically. Joe Nowacki was awesome and made me feel confident at every step in the process.I will highly recommend him and Guaranteed Rate to friends and family.

Jeff Crain and his team are phenomenal. Their attention to detail and their customer service was far beyond my expectations. Finding the right investor for my $1.6 million loan was tricky, but they made it work. I am a highly satisfied customer.

The Guaranteed Rate team in charge of my account - Trevor D. Smith, Nico DeLorenzo, and Joseph Nowacki - were knowledgeable, tireless, and very professional during the process of guiding me to obtain the loan for my first home. I appreciate the time and patience explaining and guiding me through my first experience buying a home. Thank you very much.

I met Trevor at an open house. He was approachable and authentic(not salesy) and provided support even though I had a been working with a credit union for the loan. The credit Union was slow to get me a pre-approval letter and I reached out to Trevor to see what he could do- He took the call on a Friday night and worked through the night to help me. I knew right then I would be using Guaranteed Rate. On top of that I was not expecting him to be there on the day of closing. He was- He provided...
