Review Breakdown

Exellent Service

Everyone at Guaranteed Rate was great! Darryl, the manager, as well as out loan officer, was outstanding. Felt like I knew him for years. Every promise made was fulfilled. We closed within 3 weeks of application. We needed help in lowering our mortgage payment in a creative way. They helped us do that by 11%. They were all kind and courteous. Jennifer was a great processor. Never felt any pain, so to speak. No other mortagage could offer us the product we needed and they helped us achieve our goal.
I would highly recommend Guaranteed Rate.

THought this would be an easier process, given that we have lived in our home for 13 years. But after closing, there was just one thing after ano******.Oh, the lender wants this piece of paper signed, ... Oh then lender wants that piece of paper signed. It just became too much!

Aaron Pelarske was fantastic, very knowledgeable and was always available. Aaron made the whole experience a breeze. I refinanced to a much lower interest rate and took out cash. My loan funded so fast and the fees were so reasonable, it couldn't have been easier. Aaron was so helpful and gave great service in every way and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a a super loan with Quaranteed Rate!!
