And...your entire team was wonderful in working with us and out attorney and realtor throughout the process! Thanks again for a job well done!!!!!

Rich Postiethwait and his staff went above and beyond in ensuring me a new loan. They made it so simple and convenient for me. He would call with answers to my questions after normal business hours. His staff made me feel very valued and supported in what can be a tedious and frustrated task in securing a loan. They did a great job and I am 100% satisfied and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you!!!!

Chris Barnes and his team were wonderful and pleasant to work with. At first, I was scared of going through this process as a first time home-buyer, but Chris and his entire team turned that fear into a great experience!

Nori F. | December 2017

Chris and his team made the experience very easy for us. We received a thorough outline of the documents we were required to submit for the mortgage. If there was an open item or clarification needed, they got in touch with us quickly. Chris provided us with status updates along the way, including a notice of when the appraisal had been complete. In addition, we learned when our mortgage was submitted to underwriting for final consideration and when confirmation of when things were approved....

Kimberly S. | December 2016

I was well taken care of and my emails/phone calls were responded to quickly. I was met with friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and professional personnel. As I m not adept with today's technology, Guaranteed Rate walked me through the steps one by one until I was able to complete the documents. Kudos to that. Thank you so much for a pleasant experience.

Jeanette M. - Lake Barrington, IL | MAY 2017

Load officer Chris Barnes has been exceptional in helping me through loan process right from the start. I am extremely happy with the service provided and definitely would recommend to my friends and family.

Durga N. | December 2016

Rich Postlethwait and his crew are very knowledgeable which turned out to be very helpful to me. I ended up lowering my interest rate two days prior to closing and Rich told me that he would get everything done on time and he was right. Closing went on smoothly. This is the second home my family and I bought thru Guaranteed Rate in three years. Looking forward to work with Rich and his team again in a near future. Thank you!

Ludian M. - Arlington Heights, IL | APR 2017

Chris Barnes, our agent, did a tremendous job. Extremely knowledgeable and organized.

Bjorn W. | March 2017

Great communication from Chris and team. Even thought things were virtual, Chris was excellent in calling when something came up or we needed to discuss vs. email. I appreciated that more personal aspect.

Mary Elizabeth L. | April 2017

Chris was absolutely great to work with! He always kept me informed and always made me feel comfortable asking questions. Sometimes when I felt I had too many questions, he encouraged me to keep asking. He is great at what he does, patient and kind. I have recommended Chris to a few friends and will continue to do so. Thank you for all your assistance in helping me achieve my life dream!
