    Quick and Painless

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    After reading reviews here on LendingTree, I was skeptical that I would be able to work with a lender that had a level of professionalism I would expect. It turns out RateGenius was professional, efficient and prompt. Their loan application process is highly automated via the web. If you know how to take pictures with your phone, read and fill out documents, you will do well. I had one document which needed a notary, and hard copies to mail in. As part of their process, they provided a means of printing a UPS label from their site which made things easy. Within about two days, I was notified my loan would be funded and my old loan would be paid off. I wish I could have received a better APR, but in the end, I felt pretty good about what I got. I will definitely consider RateGenius again in the future.

    Poor Service

    I recently sought refinancing on my vehicle i acquired just after my bankruptcy. Several companies came back with solutions and Rate Genius had the best interest rate saving me near $8,000 - I signed all the loan documents provided all the paperwork requested. Then was told to get my loan I needed to include an $860.00 check which I did. The paperwork overnighted and I received a call the next day that i missed a signature and that they had made a mistake and needed another $46 which they sent my a credit card authorization form which I again promptly filled out and returned - to which I was informed everything was good. 6 days later I notice no charge to my credit card the check has not cleared and there is no change to my Credit report. so I email them to which they tell me opps we valued the car wrong we will need another $1000 to get the loan approved. this I find out not because they were responsive but because I followed up and two days before my payment was due on the auto. My suggestion - do not do business with these people I cancelled negotiations with two other companies because i was assured a better rate and the loan was accepted. Run if they offer you a loan it most likely is not approved and you could end up fouling your loan with your current lender - I was lucky I followed up . Do Not do business with this company they mess up it is oh well 0 they have no concern for the consumer they are messing over.

    same old credit provider

    All score no brains.. Use outdated and known horribly inaccurate credit agencies to derive fictitious evaluation on a person. No human factor or common sense lending.

    Your consider a one time customer.

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    Because I refinanced with them a year before and now I am looking for a better rate, they will not look for better options for me. They did not even call me to info. I had to call them to inquire.

    Hard to beat

    Yes, I recommend this lender

    From start to finish it took just 11 days for Matt Larner and RateGenius to refinance my 2014 Camry XLE from 8.25% down to 3.25%.. In addition I had just purchased the car in October, 2014 so I had hardly established a payment track record. I attribute the majority of my good fortune to the hard work and effort put forth by Matt. He was able to lower my finance rate by 5 percentage points but also lowered my payments from $510 to $421. Thank you Matt! I will be saving approximately $5000 in interest over the course of the loan. Great job!!!!
