Mario Yeaman is a VP of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate. Guaranteed Rate is the 8th largest retail mortgage lender in the U.S., due to their low rates, innovative technology, and unmatched support. Licensed in 50 states, Guaranteed Rate is rated A with the BBB, has a 95% customer satisfaction rating and funded $12.4 billion in home loans in 2014 alone.
With over 3 decades of mortgage lending experience, Mario's considered by his clients, referral partners and peers as "The Best in the Industry." He was the first loan officer in the U.S. to fund over 1 billion dollars in residential real estate loans.
There are a lot of reasons why Mario has been so successful but he believes that honesty, integrity and a powerful support staff have been the top 3. In an industry filled with words like "I'll try," "Can't," "Hope to," "But" and "Should" it's easy to feel out of control and uncertain. Mario replaced those words years ago with "I will" and "I can". The words "but" and "Should" have disappeared completely.
Mario was born and raised in the So Bay area of Southern California and has never left his roots. That's why he is the go-to guy for anything related to real estate finance in Southern California. He is extremely familiar with all of the appraisal subtleties associated with So Cal real estate too.
Mario supports the California Association of Mortgage Professionals. He's been president of the South LA County chapter for several years off and on and has set on the Board of Directors at the State level. Mario has lobbied on behalf of the association and his peers in Sacramento for the betterment of his industry.
His personal life is filled with family, friends and dogs. He loves cooking and has been the guest chef on several Time Warner cooking shows shown around the country. Golf is another passion and Mario sits on the board of directors for the Los Verdes Men's Club in Palos Verdes, CA.
