Our core values

At Guaranteed Rate Insurance, we believe that service is at the core of everything we do. Serving others is more than what we value, it represents our way of being and dictates how we interact with our customers, loan teams, each other, and ourselves. Serving is a privilege and an honor, it is the foundational element that we focus on to build our business of formidable size and strength.

We define service as the opportunity to earn the trust of others by striving for excellence while providing them something needed in a manner which maximizes the impact and contribution to their lives.

We Grow for Good.

We intend to be a top 50 national insurance broker and the #1 fintech leader in the country, with the commitment that the more we grow, the more good we will do. We measure the positive impact we have on our clients and insurance communities. Every year, we conduct at minimum two companywide fundraisers, give each employee one paid day to improve our communities, and support over 50 individuals and their families through GRI’s Rate Foundation.

We Put Our Clients First.

We believe everyone deserves top quality insurance solutions, competitive rates and great service. We work relentlessly to earn our clients’ trust and improve their lives. We are absolutely committed to making sure every client loves working with us so much that they can’t wait to refer us to their family and friends.

We Work with the Best of the Best.

Our philosophy is to attract the best talent, build the best platform, be the premier destination for career development and grow our business with the best partners. We are never satisfied with the status quo. We have a burning desire to deliver great results and always satisfy our clients and members with exceptional service.

We Think Big.

We go for it. We are bold in our ideas, pushing beyond what most people believe is possible. We believe in the law of attraction and can manifest anything through positivity and working together as one team.

We Have GRIT.

We set meaningful, measurable goals and tenaciously pursue them day after day, week after week. We accomplish these goals by overcoming obstacles and finding a way to WIN. We are relentless. We never give up. Ever.

We Have An Owner’s Mentality.

We embrace a scrappy, entrepreneurial mindset and work as though we own the company. We are financially disciplined yet determined to push the boundaries and always invest in what matters. The success of our organization is directly tied to the well-being of our team, our members, and the diverse communities we serve.

We Embrace Change.

We rapidly adapt to the everchanging landscape. We innovate. We crush bureaucracy, formality, and the fear of failure. We work the problem and jump on opportunities. We make bold decisions while managing risk for the best interest of our team, members and community.

We Demand Excellence.

Our focus is to have the best value proposition in everything we do. We have the highest standards, take pride in always elevating our game, and go all-out to achieve excellence. Being good is never enough.

We Hold Ourselves and Others Accountable.

We’re not victims—we are masters of our fate. We honor the commitments we make and never say, “That’s not my job.” If we make a mistake, we own it, fix it, and move forward. We seek transparency. We embrace constructive criticism in order to learn and grow.

We Give A Sh!t.

Being part of the Rate family means caring deeply about the work we do to serve each other, our members, and our communities. We take pride in what we do and how we do it. You can’t work here unless you give a sh!t.
