I want to thank you for all your support and l want to recommend to my family and the future and thank you to Yale Valdez for all your help.
Rosa C. | October 2018
I worked with Yale Valdez to secure a home loan. As a first-time homebuyer, I initially thought the process would be a bit daunting; Yale, however, guided me through every step of the process, answering my questions promptly, and making himself available day and night to address any questions or concerns I might have. From pre-approval to closing, the process went seamlessly. I would definitely recommend Yale and Guaranteed Rate to friends or family who may be looking to secure a loan in the...

Yale Valdez is my loan officer. He went above and beyond in all aspect of this process. He was available to me for questions and help anytime any day. If I could give a rating of higher than 10 I would.

Yale, Vickey and Lilliana made an extremely tedious process feel like a breeze. I was traveling out of the country and not only did they handle everything as it came, they never made us feel like our travels were a hinderance to the process (when it must've been!). I would absolutely use Yale again and would recommend him to close friends and family. Thank you for your thoroughness and patience, Yale. I felt like we were in great hands from beginning to end.

I just wanted to thank you for making my refinancing so easy. The process was quick and you made it very smooth and convenient. You even arranged to meet me for the closing at a location next to my work. I appreciate all your thoughtfulness and professionalism in this matter. You explained the process clearly and in a way that I (a teacher) could understand. I will definitely recommend you to friends considering applying for a mortgage or a refinance. Thanks again.

I thought Linda DeRoeck was exceptional. She explained everything I needed to know from day one and was extremely responsive to my questions and requests. It was very important during the process to feel I could reach her, and she was always available. Plus she is very pleasant. I would recommend her to any of my friends and colleagues. Great job!

This is the second time we've worked with Tim Mieling for our loan refinancing and the process was a breeze. Tim is so insightful, highly communicative, and his team was great. We are so pleased with the experience and would happily use Guaranteed Rate again.

Tim made the whole process stress free and easy. He was extremely friendly and helpful and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I couldn't have been happier with Tim and his team. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who is looking for a mortgage!
Lisa G. | APR 2017
I was stuck in a 30 year loan with TCF Bank at an alarming rate of 6.68% (for big loan -- and 6.06% for small loan.) Even though I have excellent credit and made all of my payments on time, TCF told me there was nothing I could do to lower the rate, and they were making it very difficult to refinance. I thought there was no way out, until I met with TIM MIELING from Guaranteed Rate. Not only did he consolidate my two loans into one through refinancing, he dropped my rate to 3.5% (!!!) AND...

"I was having a hard time trying to understand what needed to be done, but then Yale explained it to me in detail until I understood fully. He was willing to understand my situation and willing to walk me through it. I will keep him in mind and will suggest to my friends if they are looking for the service."
Dave R. -- Park Ridge, IL -- 6/2015
Many times I was having a small melt downs not understanding all that's involved...Dan and Carolyn were both so patient and understanding and very professional in explaining the process and telling me to relax, that whats happening is NORMAL...That made me feel safe having them on my side. I would certainly use Dan and Guaranteed Rate again.

"The Guaranteed Rate professionals were very efficient and proactive to get our mortgage package in place for expeditious approval."
Sarah T. -- Park Ridge, IL -- 4/2015
“I recently completed a purchase using Guaranteed Rate. It was a short sale and through the assistance of Dan Werdell, I was able to not completely lose my mind. He was always available for questions, would call back AT THE TIME he said he would and would call sometimes just to say "I have no new information." This was more than the other parties involved would do. I very highly recommend Dan and Guaranteed Rate based on this exceptional experience.”

Hey check out the great review from Jacqueline about Tim! “Tim Mieling was great! He worked diligently to ensure I closed within 30 days, which was my main priority. I felt well informed and confident in your company as a lender the whole time. Really above and beyond service! Whole experience was great I received a fair rate, fast approval! I certainly will be referring Tim!”
