I have purchased many properties over the years and Guaranteed Rate was the best experience I have ever had in obtaining a new home mortgage! They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful through the process.
David T. | April 2019
Dean Rizzi and his team were on top of my loan process every step of the way, ultimately sprinting to an approval within two weeks! Another lender I started with could not get an approval after four weeks of back and forth doc exchange on a non-user friendly website had my put my closing in jeopardy! I was referred to Guaranteed Rate and Dean by my realtor Lee Ginsberg, and from beginning to end, the process was seamless. With the help of Dean's team, I was able to upload docs securely through Guaranteed Rate's website and track loan progress. Dean's team Michael, Brian, and Chance were very responsive by phone and email. Combine the tech with awesome customer service, and you have a winning lending team ready to get buyers like myself into a new home!
Michael N. | December 2018
I liked the website for the application when finished filling out the app guaranteed Rate gave the credit scores automatically. Their loan team was able to get a better loan than the lender I was working with by savings in loan fees and monthly payment. (.about 400 a month)!!!!!
Rhett S. | November 2018
Excellent process, consistent and efficient communication.
John C. - July | 2018

Dean and Chance made my experience completely painless. I'm had never done anything like this before on my own and I was a bit nervous just because it was such a huge undertaking for me personally, they were both very sensitive to this and their patience and kindness made me feel nothing but comfort and trust. Between them and my real estate agent from start to finish the whole transaction was a piece of cake and I have already been telling people about Guaranteed Rate and specifically Dean and Chance because it's the people that make a company and I hope you know what gold nuggets these two gentlemen are. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!
Vicky H. | May 2018
Dean and his team, Chance and Lucy, were great and easy to work with. We were able to accomplish everything via email, online, and over the phone. This was really convenient for me and my family, being my wife and I have a 7, 5, and 1 year old and my wife is pregnant with #4. So being able to handle everything without leaving the house was a huge convenience for our family. Dean and his team made everything seamless. I'd definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate and would use them again in the future if needed.
Tinoifili E. - San Bruno, CA | AUG 2016

Erum R. - Union City, CA | AUG 2016

Barbara O.– San Carlos ,CA | JULY 2015
Dean Rizzi is stellar; I have been working with him since 1998 with home purchases and refinances. He makes the process a smooth one and is extremely well informed about the market trends and can answer every question that I have. His team is also excellent, making it very easy to submit whatever documents are needed for the process. I will never use anyone else in such business transactions but Dean and his team.
Adele B. – San Mateo, CA | Apr. 2015
Dean Rizzi is wonderful. He and his team are great. He has worked with us in at least 7 loans/refis. Would use him again without hesitation but have a tiny bit of hesitation about the new company. We had smoother processes when he was not with guaranteed rate.
Shannon T. – South Pasadena, CA | Feb. 2015
Stress free, timely closure, organized and friendly. Very smooth, stress free and no surprises. Dean Rizzi was great to work with and took special care to pick the right loan product for my needs.
Michael F. -- 10/27/2014
Professional results is what you will get when you hire Dean Rizzi as your loan agent. Not only does he provide you with the best service but he pays special attention to your needs and his responsive and communications skills are high on his list. His attention to detail and the knowledge he possesses is key to his great success. I highly recommend Dean Rizzi as your loan agent. Liz Barahona Escrow Officer, Chicago Title Co. 9/16/13
Dean is a thorough professional, dedicated to doing the very best for his clients. My experience with him has always been outstanding. Peter Susskind Executive Director, Midsummer Mozart Festival 9/18/13
Dean did for me what no one else could. He did all the things that you would expect to read in a glowing review: He was accessible, responsive, engaged, and trustworthy. He got everything underway immediately and we pushed onward. But what he did that no one else had done, was that he genuinely cared. Yes, cared!! He was on my side and he wanted me to succeed! My situation was nothing if not unique (and extremely difficult). But in the 11th hour of my loan approval, he pulled through for me. Thanks to Dean and his crew, I am now a very proud homeowner.
Dean was great from start to finish. He did a great job of setting expectations early and was very upfront, forthright, and professional throughout the entire process.
Scott S., 9/26/13
Dean and staff have been our mortgage broker for several refi's. They are thorough and patient. They are always there for any questions we have. And of course, they consistently get us the best rates. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dean.
Todd S., 10/10/13
Dean is competent and easy to work with. He has a great way to keep clients on track and make a transaction smooth. Thumbs up for Dean.
Tania B., 10/10/13
My wife and I were first time buyers at age 60! Dean and his crew walked us through everything and always took the time to answer any questions we had. We were brought to Dean by our realtor, Joan Loeffler. Highest recommendation.
William T., 10/15/13
Going through our first mortgage, leaving in New Jersey and moving to California: that was quite some challenges!!! Dean Rizzi and his team made it easy for us!
Since purchasing our home in 2005 we refinanced in 2008, 2009 and 2012. In addition we sought rate quotes on several other occasions. Each time I dealt with a different mortgage provider because I wasn’t completely satisfied with past transactions. That’s changed. Since switching to Guarantee Mortgage I’m a totally satisfied customer. Dean and his team are efficient, have excellent communication skills and can be trusted to help you make the right choice. I’ll be sticking with Dean and Guarantee Mortgage for all my future mortgage needs.
Nick, Tax Director - 10/28/13
Without Dean I don't think I'd be in a home today. I was too scared by my not great credit to even apply anywhere, but Dean helped me see that I was totally qualified for an FHA loan. I was nervous about being judged, but Dean doesn't do that. He made recommendations of what I should do to improve my credit standing and gave me great practical advice-with no judgements. I recommend him to everyone I know who's looking for a mortgage. Thank you Dean for helping me get into my home and for making it a smooth process! You and your team make what I thought would be difficult easy and painless!
Trish H., 10/28/13
I highly recommend Dean Rizzi and his team. I was having difficulty finding someone to heIp me refinance a second house, which I had inherited and was not living in, and was finally introduced to Dean by someone else he had helped. He went above and beyond in helping me obtain a great loan when others in the business would or could not. Also, he and his team made the process very easy for me and were wonderful to work with.
Vicki M., 11/6/13
We had a complex loan situation requiring 85% financing with two separate loans in a new condo project. Dean not only found very competitive loans but also followed through with every little detail and obstacle that the lenders were throwing at us, and helped us get our loan closed. Dean has knowledgeable staff and his office has many years of experience with loans in the local San Francisco market.
Wolf A., 2/17/14
We were trying to take some equity out of our property that was in a trust that we had recently inherited and the traditional banks and other lending institutions wanted nothing to do with us. One call to Dean Rizzi and he was able to tell us exactly what he could do for us, how long it would take and what it would cost. Dean even recommended a wonderful attorney to help us with our estate. I highly recommend Dean Rizzi and his team at Guarantee Mortgage Corp, our loan was approved and we did not even have to jump through any hoops! Thank you Dean!
Janelle Z., 3/3/14
Dean Rizzi has worked with us on at least half a dozen loans. His team is professional, efficient, and transparent.
Martin B. - Santa Cruz, CA | Jul 2022
