Matt was great and walked me through every part of the underwriting process. He made himself available 24/7.

Michael P. | March 2019
My wife and I are super thankful that we were lucky enough to work with Matt McDevitt and his team on our home loan. They answered every question we had, and there were a TON of them, as this was our first home purchase. The rates we got were fair and transparent, and we felt that our best interests were taken care of at all times. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Jamie S. | March 2019
Guaranteed Rate was very helpful and made it easy for me to work through the whole loan process.
Dolores S. | February 2019
The Team did a fantastic job!! Kudos to all!! GRI is awesome!! Not only Did they insure I was up to date with everything, they were all very professional and made me feel comfortable through the whole process! Thank you Matthew, Emily, Tammie and Vanessa! I love GRI!!!
Carmen L. | February 2019
Matt Mcdevitt, Tammie Douglass, Emily Smoucha, and Vanessa Harrison are a solid team! They were responsive to my emails. My loan was moved quickly through contract changes from one home to another and was quickly moved to underwriting. The process started to stall some at underwriting but I believe that to be normal as conditions have to be worked out to get the clear to close. I received emails on weekends and after hours from the team and this tells me that they are all hard working and...
Fonya H. | February 2019
Loan officer Matthew McDevitt was great at not only explain your loan but helping understand the difference before your offer and other officers.
Mutty S. | January 2019
I had good experience specially dealing with Vanessa and Emily even though it took l a while to get the loan they both kept me informed where we were in the process.
Niall H. | January 2019
Matthew McDevitt is the best loan agent ever! He helps me feel confident in the loan process and comfortable with my rate. Emily Smoucha was always there to assist with anything I needed throughout the whole process. Anna Vuong got my loan into underwriting extremely fast and was very helpful. Last but not least, Vanessa Harrison, the best in the business! She made me feel like her only client. She cares for her clients like they are family and works extremely hard. She eased my mind during...
Tammie D. | January 2019
Matt and his team were very communicative and ready to answer all questions. They were also good at explaining things simply and in detail. I suppose buying a house is always a headache, but Matt and his team made it feel less like a struggle or an uphill battle.
Stephanie S. | December 2018
Thank you, Matt McDevitt! You and your team have made a less than fun process proceed smoothly with a minimum of discomfort. It’s been a pleasure working with you to purchase our new home. Thank you!
Lanny S. | November 2018
Working for Walgreens and having a savings partnership with Guaranteed Rate made the refinance idea a little easier to pursue. After talking with Mike, he made the entire process and experienced a total win-win for us. Can’t say enough but from start to finish, Guaranteed Rate is worth considering, or you might be sorry you didn’t give them a chance. Thanks Guaranteed Rate! (Go White Sox!)
Mark P. | November 2018
They got the closing done in 12 days and worked well with both realtors. They were fast to respond and explained everything I had a question about.
Jeffrey H. | August 2018
I was somewhat skeptical to move forward with an online mortgage company where I wasn’t ever going to meet anyone face to face. Matt was very reassuring in our first conversations, and I couldn’t be happier with the results of working with Guaranteed Rate. The team communicated and worked together so well. They got my loan accomplished ahead of schedule and exceeded my expectations in every way. Guaranteed Rate got me the best rate out of everyone I talked to, and they delivered on everything...
Peter P. | November 2018
I used Guaranteed Rate for the original purchase of my home and now for the refinance of my primary home. In both cases I was very satisfied; however my recent experience was so exceptional. Uploading documents made the process seamless. Matt McDevitt, Emily Smoucha, and Tammie Douglass make a great team and were always prompt in following up and clearly communicated each step of the way. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think the three of them were running the company. Hands down the best...
Juvenal E. | November 2018
Far exceeded my expectations, made very efficient and easy to understand. Great job Matt!

Matt tried several different ways to make the loan work for me, and I really appreciate his persistence and willingness to continue searching for ways to get my family in the home of our dreams.
Christopher C. | November 2018
The team assigned to me worked seamlessly together. They were so responsive to my needs, worked with my timeline and were extremely patient working with me. This was by far the smoothest mortgage process I have been through.
Angela M. | October 2018
Matthew McDevitt and his group were very professional, answered all my questions and made the way to get the documentation smooth. Working with them was great.
Luciano D., October 2018
Matthew and his team were great to work with from the start. They always had quick answers to my questions, and I felt like they cared. I would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate to a friend.
David C., October 2018
From the very beginning everyone was helpful, friendly, and easy to work with. We had issues getting a refinance through multiple other companies even though we have great credit and no payment issues. Everyone at Guaranteed Rate gave us the time and respect to help us! We will definitely use them for any other mortgages we may need and recommend them to everyone we know. They even made closing easy by having someone meet us while on vacation! Thank you so much for allowing us to work with you
Renee D. | October 2018
Matt and his team made my closing the easiest I’ve ever had! Always quick to reply and always on the ball! Really amazing.
Kim T. | September, 2018
Thanks for another smooth transaction!!!!
Roberto S. | September 2018
Matthew and his team have processed several loans on behalf of my husband and me. He and his team are always timely, expeditious, and thorough. Communication is effective and succinct and the team endeavors to make the process as seamless as possible. We will continue to come back to Guaranteed Rate because of the high level of personal service Matt and his team deliver. Thanks, Matt!

Bashar A. | June 2018
Very thorough. Easy to exchange information securely. Was able to do work on my time, rather than making appointment, and having to have everything ready at a milestone. Very friendly and efficient support via email and phone.
Sandeep M. | June 2018
Everyone was very helpful.
Andrew S. | June 2018
Everyone who worked on the loan was unbelievably helpful. Matthew McDevitt walked us through all potential options to find the best loan for our situation. The loan process went smoothly due to the knowledge and communication from Emily Smoucha, Tammie Douglass, and Vanessa Harrison. They were able to review all my documentation and meet our aggressive timelines. When the seller's pushed out our closing date, the team jumped in to make sure we were able to keep everything on track. We could not...
Matthew N. - June | 2018
I LOVE GUARANTEED RATE!!
Elizabeth T. | May 2018
Matt did such an excellent job helping us get pre-approved for a home loan. Then with his recommendation we found an amazing realtor who found our dream home. Thank you to Matt and the entire team for making our home-buying experience so easy and wonderful!
Joshua W. | May 2018
I would like to say thank you to Matthew and his team. You guys really helped us out a lot and everything was smooth. Thank you for helping us obtain our first home.
Jose R. - May | 2018
Guaranteed Rate, Matt McDevitt, Emily, and Vanessa were fantastic. I was offered the best rate and the lowest expenses from the beginning. I had other lenders warning me about Guaranteed Rate and offering to beat your numbers if I would send them your loan estimate. I could have saved a few dollars but I'm not built that way. You offered the best overall numbers along with great service and I appreciate what you do. Thank you.
James M. | May 2018
This process was simple and straight-forward. Unlike other lenders we were not continually asked to provide the same documentation repeatedly. We were very happy with how quickly and easily the loan took from start to finish. The loan officer Matthew was available when needed, but not overbearing. We had a previous poor experience with a lender that made numerous promises, even in writing, and then as closing approached changed the deal in dramatic fashion, which caused us to eventually decide...
Shannon M. Kennesaw, GA | FEB. 2018
I never thought I'd own my own home, so when Matthew McDevit called me back right away after applying saying I was approved I didn't believe it. Within 30 minutes I had prequalification letter. Everything was streamlined and made easy. I thought the process would be a nightmare but it was easy the whole way through. I can't say enough good things about Matthew and his entire team. They made the process easy and were there for me every step of the way. Quick to reply and answer any questions I...
Felix R. - Fresno, CA | Feb 2018
This is the second time I have used Guaranteed Rate for a mortgage refinance and both have been exceptionally positive experiences! Matthew McDevitt and his team were very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process! Vanessa Harrison and Tammie Douglass were really great to work with and they answered all my questions quickly and accurately! Their customer service skills were terrific! I found the entire transaction to be very smooth and efficient. In fact I can't believe how...
Stephen L. - Yorkville, IL | APR 2017
This was the most painless process that I could have imagined! The paperwork was easy to complete online and throughout the process everyone was so friendly and responsive at all times! And Guaranteed Rate gave us the best rate, by far! We would definitely use them again AND recommend them!
Trent H. - Tucsan, AZ | MAR 2017
Matt and the entire team were absolutely awesome! Great communication and timeliness. Very thorough in answering our questions and leading us through each step of the process. Obtaining a loan through Guaranteed Rate was an extremely painless process.
Mike H. - Sammamish, WA | MAR 2017
Matt contacted me within minutes of me filling out an online information request form. From there, he and I had a phone call to go over questions I had and available loans. The entire process was simple and Matt (and his team) were very responsive to questions and in letting me know anything outstanding still required for the loan. I could not ask for better service in obtaining a much better loan than we did have. A++++ to Matt and team!
Matt F. - Ortonville, MI | FEB 2017
Matt McDevitt and his team (Vanessa Harrison, Tammie Douglass, and CJ Gutsmiedl) were absolutely fantastic and extremely helpful throughout every step of the process.

Everett R. - Eau Claire, WI | NOV 2016
Our entire loan team was superb. They were responsive, pleasant, and a delight to work with. Our loan officer gave us excellent advice about interest rates / credit market conditions that helped us make our decision, get the timing right, and as it turned out -- helped save us a bundle of money. We're so glad to have gotten connected with Matt McDevitt, Tammie Douglass, Vanessa Harrison, and Guaranteed Rate! A fantastic experience. Great product, great pricing, outstanding customer service.

I was nervous because I have never bought a house before. Everyone was very easy to work with and they answered all of my questions!
Katie J. - Forney, TX | May 2016
We are extremely happy with the way Matt and team processed our refinancing requirement. Our situation was very unique because my wife was traveling abroad while we locked our rate. However Matt suggested to me a very educated and practical solution to close the loan within the locking period. That gave me the confidence to work with Guaranteed Rate while other lenders were trying me to sign up with them without providing a legitimate solution in a scenario when one of the spouses are not in...
Muhammed P.- San Diego, CA | APR 2016
