My family and friends have used Mike Brannigan on several occassions... this is an organization that goes the extra mile. When one thinks of customer service , professionalism, and caring, this is the company every organization should model themselves after.
Coming from a client who has performed 3 separate mortgage transactions in the past eight months with Mike Brannigan and his team, I can't say one bad word about their service. On the contrary, they made things so easy my loan processor practically ushered me through the entire process to ensure all would be ready and we would make our projected close date. Don't want to do this again for a while but, if I had too it would be with Mike.
Rich Hirsch. He exudes a professional demeanor, facilitates many aspects of the loan process and thorough knowledge of the products available and how to service such is by far the BEST I have ever experienced.

Mike, I just wanted to say thank you very much for all of the help and support that you, Michelle and the rest of the team gave to me during my purchase process. Having had such a negative experience with the lending division of my real estate company, I wasn't sure that I was going to complete the application and approval process on time. Not only do I thank you for getting me through the process but I also want to acknowledge that both you and Michelle are two of the most pleasant and...
AboutAt Guaranteed Rate, we have a philosophy to “lend where we live” and our office has been originating loans in the Mt. Arlington area since 2003. We’re happy to call this historic town our home, on the southernmost point of Lake Hopatcong. We know that Conventional loans are the primary loan product in our market and 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. We put the customer first by meeting face to face with as many borrowers as possible, attending closings and fielding calls from borrowers from early morning until late in the evening.

We love to go out to eat and have great spots within walking distance from the office – Quick Chek for a fast sandwich, Cracker Barrel for a good ole home cooked meal and Davy’s Hot Dog, our favorite hotdog and burger place in town!
