This is the third time I've use GR for a mortgage, and the second with Ian Beamer and his team. They keep the process very straightforward and efficient. Also, in regard to GR in general, I love the online interface that allows me to easily and securely upload sensitive docs.
Scott T. | Aug 2019
I was so happy the first time i worked with Ian Beamer so i did not hesitate to call him when I needed a loan again. Courtney Leonard and the rest of Ian's team are just so helpful and prompt in responding to my questions/concerns. They act fast and are very professional to dealt with. I will definitely use Guaranteed Rate again and in fact have talked to some of my friends who are considering refinancing or buying a home. Thank you so much for a great customer service!
Gilda P. | August 2019
Ian and his team have over the years provided me with a level of service and attention that you don't see much of anymore and that is why I continue to want to do business with him vs others. It is him and his teams attention to detail and follow up with the chaos that comes with the sales and purchases of homes and how taxing that can be. He and his team always maintained a superior level of communication that is critical in these days where too much is done just electronically for cost savings but, the personal touch such as a call or follow up personal note is everything showing a sincere interest in me and my families needs as we navigate what can be a stressful process.
Jason L. | July 2019

Jennifer K. | July 2019
Ian Beamer and his team (especially Courtney Leonard) were outstanding from pre-approval all the way through closing day. I was kept informed on where we were and/or what additional information was needed each step of the way. The online process of providing the necessary documents for initial and final approval was simple and secure. Whenever I had any questions or simply wanting and update, the team responded promptly which really helped to alleviate any anxiety that is usually associated with closing on a house. Ian even showed up for the closing to help expedite the funding from Guaranteed Rate resulting in a seamless closing and we really appreciated having him there with us throughout the process. Thank you for everything!
Karen D. | July 2019
I would absolutely refer people your way! Our loan process took about six months due to the availability of the property. Ian was always available to answer any questions that came up and was also there at the closing to make sure everything went smooth. Huge gold star for Courtney Leonard! She was absolutely amazing throughout the process! Extremely organized, and made sure we had everything done to keep things going during this extended process. She was also available to answer any questions. Fantastic experience working with these two!

Hilary Z. | May 2019
Mr. Ian Beamer, Vice President of Mortgage Lending, is the best loan officer my wife and I have ever worked with. We had a really tight deadline, and he was able to pull his team together to help ensure that the process went smoothly. Not only was the deadline met, but even had a few days to spare. Ian is a consummate professional, great to work with, and will recommend to anyone needing his services.
Edwin T. | February 2019

Olha O. -- Chicago, IL. -- 11/2013
"Everything went really well, I was surprised how easy it was. There were some hold ups due to my condo association and Guaranteed Rate wanted to make sure everything was in order but we were able to work everything out. Ian was very good and explained things well for us. He was almost always responsive within the hour and he even showed up at the closing! Thanks Ian!"
James H. -- Lombard, IL. -- 9/ 2013
"For this being my first loan, I feel like it was a very smooth and easy process. There were no questions I had that were left unanswered. The team was well informed and moved at a quick pace. They were very easily contacted, and quick to respond. The one time he wasn't available, he made arrangements to take care of my needs, and left me in good hands. With this being my first home purchase, I'd say I was pretty clueless about the process but everyone I worked with was very helpful and explained things to me in an easily understood manner. Thank you!"
Patrick F. -- Chicago, IL. -- 6/ 2013
Thank you Ian for being at the closing in case something else was needed. I appreciate it very much. I know very well that I was not the only person who you were working with to get a mortgage but I felt like I was the only one. Staff very conscientious and responded immediately to emails.
Maria P. -- Laguna Beach, CA. -- 8/ 2013
Hey, check out this amazing review from Rob about Ian! “Thank you so much to Ian Beamer and his whole team. You made the process so easy by being very responsive and patient with questions. We'd work with you again in a heartbeat!”
Rob W. – Chicago, IL – 5/2013
Ian Beamer is the the Man! I started my home buying process a year ago. He was nice enough to spend a half hour going through the process with me (even parts that didn't involve a mortgage). He was extremely patient with me and took me step by step through the mortgage process. Apart from being super knowledgeable, Ian is also really well connected. Whenever I had an issue, Ian would say "I'll handle it" and sure enough 5 min later I'd get a call back saying the problem is handled. I would buy again from Guaranteed Rate any day!
Salman V- 3/2013
I highly recommend Ian Beamer. When closing on our first home, we told him to lock us in at a rate. He surprised us at closing with an even lower rate than he originally quoted us. We have used him to refinance our home and purchase a second home. He has always answered our questions quickly and honestly.
Mr. Beamer was very helpful and professional throughout our buying process. We definitely plan on going back to him when we sell and buy again!!
Ian is quite trustworthy and punctual, he got me the lowest rate possible and locked it in just on time; months after I bought my property and rates went down, he helped me refinance and the process was absolutely pain-free. I do recommend him.
Ian is great helping first time buyers understand the mortgage process. Most importantly Ian always gets the best rate. That is why I have used him myself.
Victor E, Coldwell Banker
Ian is the only lender I will refer for conforming loans.. He is responsive and efficient. He is excellent at what he does.
Rich M, Organic Realty
Not only a trusted advisor and true professional throughout the entire process, Ian bent over backwards to make our purchase experience seemless. I have since worked to re-finance given the market environment and thought of nobody else to call other than Ian. He will have our business for years to come.
I always recommend Ian because he's a dependable, trustworthy, and competent mortgage broker. He's a fine man who I am always happy to work with. Also love Guaranteed Rate, they're the best!
Vana K, Coldwell Banker
Ian and his staff made buying our house very easy! I would highly recommend him to any future buyers looking for an honest, dependable mortgage broker!
Ian approaches each client with personal service that enhances his skills for client's needs. He is an excellent communicator and makes sure all expectations are met quickly and professionally. Any buyer should welcome Ian's service, knowledge and commitment for the mortgage process.
Leone B, Coldwell Banker
Ian did a great job responding quickly to my questions and providing me with all of the information I needed throughout the process of getting my mortgage loan. He basically handled everything for me from the beginning so I didn't have to spend a lot of time answering questions and filling out a lot of paperwork. He provided me with a great rate from the get go, so there was no need to shop around. He also had all of the necessary information ready at my closing, so it was just a matter of signing off on everything and I was done! Thanks again Ian!
I've used Ian twice to refinance my property. I've compared his services to other companies and he always beats them - hands down. Also, he gets the job down quickly and efficiently.
In 2009, I thought I was going to loose the condo of my dream because I could not get financing from another mortgage company. My real estate agent suggested I call Ian. Thank god for the master himself. Within 48 hours I was approved, and I closed within two weeks. If anyone can get the job done, I know he can. I fully endorse him for any of your mortgage needs. Your Client Forever, Denise Y
Ian made refinancing our home quick and painless! He was prompt to answer any questions we had and explained the details of the process thoroughly.
I worked with Ian to get a mortgage on my first home. He was very professional, friendly, and took the time to explain everything to me in detail. He got me a great deal! He also followed up with me a few months later to help me improve my mortgage rates, and has been keeping in touch ever since.
Ian provided our original mortgage and a few refinancings. He works hard to get the lowest rate and make the transaction costs as affordable as possible. Ian is a friendly, responsive guy. We recommend him highly and will use him again.
Ian got us approved for our mortgage easily, got us an amazing rate that nobody could touch. And his fees were very low relative to others. He saved us money every which way. He was very responsive, easy to deal with, and was organized and knew what he was doing. I'd hire him in a heartbeat if I was buying another house. Excellent all around.
My wife and I have been working with Ian for our loans and business needs for over 5 years. Ian knows his products, has competateve rates and helps expidite our loans in a timely manor.
Ian was referred to me through a friend and he assisted me with my first home purchase. Ian and his team were fantastic to work with and did everything right! I was impressed with Ian's knowledge of the business and the way he handled all the little hiccups along the way. I will definitely use Ian in the future and recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy or refinance a home.
Hey check out the amazing review from Steven about Ian! “Everyone at Guaranteed Rate was great to work with and was available to answer all my questions! As a first time home buyer their professionalism allowed me to feel extremely comfortable and at ease. Ian, was very responsive making me aware by providing me with an estimate of all costs. This made me comfortable in knowing there will be no surprises. Thanks again Ian!”
Steven P. -- Chicago IL -- 01/2013
[Our purchase] went great! Smooth sailing and I really appreciated that Ian Beamer came to the closing to make sure everything went as planned. I would absolutely use Ian again and refer him to family and friends.
Ashley F., Chicago, IL 6/2012
Ian Beamer's professionalism and acuity with the mortgage market gave us a quick turnaround on our refi, with a rate that we didn't know we could get. He, and his team, did a superlative job. He is an invaluable resource to us and an asset to GR. As long as Mr. Beamer is handling our mortgages, who we have used in five of our six mortgages (the first was with someone far inferior), we will continue to use Guaranteed Rate.
Ian did a great job pulling everything together and I got great service and an exceptional rate.
Ian was wonderful! He was very honest with me. He worked hard to deliver what he promised. He responded quickly to all of my questions and thoroughly answered my questions.
Katie K. - Chicago, IL 5/2012
Thanks so much for all of your hard work with my refinancing! You definitely went above and beyond and I am truely grateful! I will definitely refer you to a friends!
Katie K. - Chicago, IL 4/2012
It took some time to get everything together, but we always received responses to any questions we had during our wait time. I would definitely refer Ian or use him again - we really enjoyed the good service we received from Ian.
Robert G., Chicago IL
Overall, I was satisfied with my experience, and Guaranteed Rate continues to find the best rate out there by far, so I am always pleased with the outcome of the transaction.
