This was indeed one of the greatest experiences that I have ever had with a mortgage company they worked hard and diligently and made us feel like we were the only customer that they were concerned about in the world we totally fell in love with everyone that we came in contact with

Willie S. - October | 2017

Mike Alkema and his team made the whole process smooth, effortless, and very welcoming. Mike was a very straight shooter no fluff just the truth which is exactly how I like it.

Marchello P. | 09/29/2017

This is the second loan I have used Guaranteed Rate for and I am very pleased with the service I have received. Mike Alkema has bee great. I will be sure to recommend Mike and Guaranteed Rate.

David D. | 05/30/2017

Everyone at Guaranteed Rate was awesome!!!

Christine J. | October 2017

It was a pleasure to have Mike Milanowski as our loan officer. He was very accessible, knowledgable, and patient during the entire process. He ensured my questions were answered and provided honest feedback on situational issues. His assistant team of Brittany was also quick and super responsive. They ensured we were prepared adequately for underwriting. His team made this entire process very easy.

Kevin T - April | 2018

Robert was extremely helpful.

Kristopher K. - Funded 8/24/17

Everything was explained and broken down so that it was easily understood. Robert answered all of my questions and always responded promptly.

Shateika D. | April 2017

MIke Milanowski is a great loan officer. I am a commercial real estate mortgage loan broker, and know too well all of the brain damage involved in closing a loan. Mike is thorough, persistent, and systematically works through issues that a lesser loan officer would not have been able to handle. He is an exemplary employee. That goes for Amy Ainslie as well. It was a pleasure working with both of them.

Ellen S. - February | 2018

Mike Milanowski was the absolute best! Mike was always timely with e-mail responses and returning phone calls. He was always willing to walk through any questions in detail until we fully understood.. Thank you Mike for making a scary unknown process more manageable and enjoyable!!!

Daniel D. - January | 2018

Robert Baldwin has done an exceptional job! I will absolutely refer any of my contacts to him for help with processing their loans. Robert was patient with us and made sure we not only understood the next steps in the process, but also why each step is important. Robert is professional and always available to answer any of our questions. Robert's demeanor and responsiveness should be used as a model. Well Done!

Scott B. | June 12

Greg Wilson and his team completed my VA loan in 18 days! I never thought that could happen. Everyone of them put me first and I will always appreciate that. With out hesitation I would recommend Greg Wilson and his team to anyone I know looking to buy a house.

Matthew B. | April 2018

Robert Baldwin always took the time to explain everything. He was very patient and helpful throughout the entire process. Thank you!

Trudy W. - February | 2017

I started the process of obtaining my mortgage with Nationstar, who held my current loan. After two months of delays and poor service, I was fortunately referred to Guaranteed Rate through Lending Tree. I feel blessed to have found Michael Milanowski. He is professional, understanding, and committed to excellent service.

Robert C. | June 2017

Greg and his team were awesome! Always going above and beyond to make everything easier for us! Greg was available at odd hours to get us paperwork when we needed to make an offer on a house. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Bernard A. - December | 2017

Greg Wilson did an excellent job. I would trust Greg with anything. The process was clean and efficient. Thanks!

Curtis C. | May 2016

We had a great experience with Greg Wilson securing our loan for us. We would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate and Greg Wilson to our friends and family. Greg was always willing to answer any questions we had and made himself readily available. We had never met Greg before, but by the end of our loan process, we felt like we had made a friend. What an asset you have in him.

Jeffrey M. | September 2017

Dave and Brittany made the process so easy and kept us informed along the way.

Samantha K. - May | 2018

Greg did everything we ask for and more. He came highly recommended and we can see why. Process was smooth and timely. Very happy with all staff involved. Well done!!!!!!

Douglas H. | May 2017

This is the second time I've worked with Greg Wilson and Guaranteed rate and I couldn't be happier. Greg does a great job and makes the process so much easier. He took my calls every time I called with questions, and he answered all of my questions right away. I will be referring Greg Wilson and Guaranteed Rate to all my friends and family and also to anyone else who is looking to buy or refinance their home. Thank you again Greg.

Brian J. - 12/06/2016

I have never had an easier time with a mortgage then with Guaranteed Rate!

Our Grand Rapids branch began originating loans in the area in 2014. We are happy to call this beautiful area our home, with the Grand River and our proximity to Lake Michigan, it’s no wonder this city tops the charts in the housing markets! We know that all types of loans, including Conventional Purchase, Jumbo, Condo, FHA and RD, are important to you in our market. 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. Everything begins and ends with our clients. Our motivation is to identify where they are at in life, where they want to go, when and how they want to get there. We help guide them to their goals by giving expert advice and consultation.

We are proud to have Guaranteed Rate’s World’s First Digital Mortgage at our disposal. This is invaluable to both clients and realtors. It saves them so much time knowing that their documents are protected and secure, they get automatic answers, their credit scores and pre-approved quickly.

At Guaranteed Rate, you will find that we strive for the industry leading value proposition for our loan officers, referral sources and customers, which is why we work by a set of Core Values. While each of these are important to our success, our office embodies the “Deliver Results” core value. We do what we say we are going to do, on time, with perfection.

Here in Grand Rapids, we have a work hard, play hard mentality. We put the customers first, and love to reward our team for doing so – we hold events for our team almost every week. Each year, we look forward to our local events, especially Art Prize, the largest art contest in the world. We also love to cheer on our local teams, Grand Rapids Griffins Hockey and the West Michigan White Caps!

While it is important that our office has fun, we are also dedicated to giving back. We raised about $15,000 for Elle’s Place, an organization that helps children and families deal with the loss of a parent or close relative. We are always interested in learning about new ways we can give back to our community!

It is our branch’s goal to be the #1 lender in the Grand Rapids market and as a result, we are looking to exponentially grow our production this year. We even began hosting our own GR Palooza, an event to get out name out around town. So, if you’re looking for new career opportunities, start with us! We hire the best of the best and are looking for team members that gravitate toward our core values and have the inner fire to do better than they did the day before. We’re looking to build a team like the Michael Jordan-Chicago Bulls. Come grow with us!
