Working with Yale was great. Very helpful and friendly.
Matthew Z. | August 2018
Dan Werdell was exactly the type of mortgage broker that I needed. That is, someone who was direct about what was needed from me while building my trust in him and the process every step of the way. Throughout the process, Dan spoke highly about his close-knit team, which not only made me feel comfortable working with them, it also showed me that Dan is an excellent leader. Thank you, Dan and to the entire team!!

Yale Valdez and his team were exceptional! I felt i was in great hands and they eased all my worries and concerns. They answered all my questions and the entire process was super smooth. I only wished I had started the process of refinancing much sooner. I would recommend family and friends to Yale Valdez/Guaranteed Rate.

Tim was great - I'm so glad I was referred to Guaranteed Rate. Also very thankful I was able to take advantage of the historically low interest rates to refinance.

Hey, check out this amazing review from Pattie about Tim! “Tim Mieling worked with us on getting our home refinanced. While lenders are making you jump through hoops to get money, Tim was wonderful at getting a great rate, following through to get the process completed and making it as painless as possible. I would highly recommend him!”
Pattie K. – Cook, IL – 6/2013
“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.”

I have known Linda for over 30 years. She's an amazing lady, an incredible lender, she's trust worthy, loyal, knowledgeable, a true professional! I refer her to all my clients and wouldn't have anyone else do the loans on my personal homes. I recommend Linda to everyone!
