Everyone was professional and kept me in the loop the whole time.
Kimberley B. - October | 2018
Chris' team is top notch! Very professional but also genuine and approachable. They made me feel comfortable at every step by providing a thorough explanation of each loan stage with plenty of contact information in case of questions. The online portal made the application process a breeze and allowed me to share documents quickly and securely! I would absolutely recommend Guaranteed Rate to anyone looking for a residential mortgage partner. Thank you Chris, Jackie, Emily, Kelly & Nicole!

David S. Wilmington, NC. 9/16/2014
Loved Mr. Hutchens - intelligent and super dedicated :) Easy to reach, easy to talk with, and always there for us. Through the entire process, we couldn't have asked for smoother conversations, effective team members, intelligent questions and total commitment to understanding our particularly different (and sometimes difficult) set of circumstances.
Chris is a great guy! Very genuine and wanted to help. The ability to sign documents online was great. The team was very organized and let me know exactly what I needed to get them which made the tedious process very easy.
Lyndsey S. -- Wilmington, NC 5/12/2014
I was VERY happy with the communication and the attention to detail. This is quite a professional and well-run organization. The loan was handled in a timely fashion -- all deadlines were met without issue. There were no surprises -- every step was explained in detail. I never felt at any time during the process as if I didn't know what was going on. I have not been disappointed at all. Taking out a mortgage is quite a weighty decision. Chris gave me the tools to make my own educated...

Chris has provided superior service to many of my clients over the years. He is an expert in his field, highly responsive, detail oriented, and MOST importantly, he gets the job done.
Chris came highly recommended from my partner at Do Good Real Estate, who personally used his service and keeps Chris on our short list of preferred lenders for our clients. As a happy customer, I consider Chris and his experienced team to be "the local area experts" and look forward to working again with them in the future.

Chris Hutchens has provided mortgage loans for many of our customers over the years and I highly recommend him for any type of mortgage needs. He is very detailed and keeps his customers, as well as the realtors and builders involved in the transaction, informed of the process and what can be expected from start to finish.
The main thing about Chris and his work ethics is he treats you like he would want to be treated with honesty, kindness, facts, communication, answers when you call and if you have to leave a message..quickly responding, but most of all...he gets the job done! If Chris is not sure about something...he will first find out the answer immediately but secondly tell you the "real deal" especially with his expertise in the lending industry. I can not say enough nice things about Chris and would...

It was my first experience, I was very scared. Cameron talked to me and explained to me every step. He was calling me time from time with the updates, and cheering me up. Very pleasant person. His team worked hard to make my dream come true - to have a nice house! Everyone was friendly and worked fast. I am so thankful to Guaranteed Rate for everything!

Thank you Cameron Pearson and your entire team !!! My loan process from start to finish could not have gone any smoother. I truly appreciate the professionalism, response time and good ol'fashion courtesy of each and every person I dealt with. Thanks for everything!
Bruce M.- Hampstead, NC | JUN 2016
It was a pleasure working with Cameron and the rest of the team! They were very clear about the whole process and made it easy to understand each step. I will definitely recommend them in the future!
Dustin D. -Leland,NC | MAR 2016
As a first time home buyer, I was extremely nervous and anxious. Amanda Green and her entire team were absolutely wonderful! They walked me through the entire process and I had constant communication with them throughout the experience. They made the entire process much less stressful than I could have imagined. I am so happy with the service I received!
I can’t explain how thankful I am I was able to keep my house . Everybody especially Pete did everything in his power to help me out. I am beyond thankful and grateful I now have my own house. Thank you Guaranteed rate!!
Greyvy B.G. | April 2018
JD Terry and team were great to work with. JD was very accessible by phone, email, text which was awesome. He was very helpful and explained things well. The rest of the team were very good to work with as well but seemed to prefer email and sometimes I just like to hear a human voice. All in all, Guaranteed Rate did a great job for us and I would definitely recommend and use them again.
