They make the process extremely efficient and easy for the borrower. Organized, had lots of my previous info on file, respond quickly, lock in a great rate and close things quickly and smoothly. This was our second refi with GR (after our initial mortgage with them as well), and each time the process got even better! The team is professional, communicative and a pleasure to work with! Thank you to Gary and his team, who I will highly recommend to others!

Gary Umholtz is great to work with. As REALTORS, my wife and I recommend Gary to all clients needing financing. We will continue to work with Gary whenever we can. He’s simply the best we’ve ever worked with.
Vincent B. | December 2018
Gary and his team were phenomenal. He came highly recommended from a good friend and exceeded my even lofty expectations. The online portal for secure document sharing was very helpful, and Gary and his team were great at keeping us appraised as first-time home-buyers about each step of the process. Gary's responsiveness and ability to quickly get pre-approval and loan funding were instrumental in us securing a great deal on the house with an accelerated closing timeline. We are indebted to Gary and his team and would highly recommend Guaranteed Rate to others. Thank you for getting us our loan!
Dominic H. | December 2018
Not only did we have a great experience with Gary Umholtz, Jessica Reintenback, Mariana Medina and others, but our closing attorney's coordinator also said that it was one of the best teams she had worked with in 25 years! Breath of fresh air all around.
Ross E. - October | 2018
Rhea, Gary and the rest of the Guaranteed Rate team were very helpful and professional from the beginning through loan funding. What I liked most is they responded to all my questions very quickly. And, once I submitted all the necessary documents, the loan processing/approval occurred within a week. I highly recommend these guys to anyone needing to buy or refinance their house.
Todd A. | August 2018
I have worked with many traditional banks over the years and after each one I've been so frustrated. But not with guaranteedRate. Seriously, your team was a well oiled machine and it made my job so much easier.
