Steve SchraderBacher was absolutely amazing! Honestly, he saved the day. I was caught between a rock and a hard place, and he went far above and beyond to help secure a loan for me and my family to have a house to make a home. He was exceptionally professional, immediately responded to all questions along the way, and also continued to look out for my best interests as well. We got a great rate, with a more than fair down payment. But really what Steve helped provide was a home for my family. A place to call our own. To raise our kids. To make memories. Steve got it done what nobody else could do. I highly recommend Steve SchraderBacher and the experience I had with Guaranteed Rate. The process was easy. The online and virtual components allowed us to streamline almost every step. I couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you for making it easy to be a customer. Thank you for helping my family have a home!
