We've done this process four times...and Michaela and team, by far, made this the easiest experience yet. We loved how secure everything was (versus just sending really sensitive documents by email, uploading it to the encrypted portal!). Also, in all three previous mortgages we got, we weren't allowed to count stock as income, even though it was on our W2 and we had multiple years documenting its value. Given that about half of our income is stock, this was really really frustrating ---- not the case this time! We were thrilled that Guaranteed Rate understands that tech professionals are paid in equity. Finally! I never thought I'd say this, but I have a favorite lending company now. A HUGE thank-you to Michaela for taking the time to talk to us about options, keeping us extremely well-updated via email, and her incredible team (Shout-out to Ragan for driving all the way up to Boulder to attend closing!). You guys are simply the best out there. Thank you.

Michaela was excellent! I have worked with many Lender's (as a Real Estate agent) and her communications skills and responsiveness were considerably better than anyone I've worked with. I will highly recommend her to all my Buyer's.

Michaela and team are sharp, diligent and pro-active. They make the loan application process as easy as possible and help tremendously by being one step ahead of anything the underwriter may need. I'd definitely recommend them and plan to always use Michaela and team for mortgage needs in the future.

Working in the cannabis industry, I was very apprehensive to begin the home buying process. I cannot find the proper words to describe how easy and stress free Michaela made this process. She made this process so easy and hassle free that I never worried for a single minute that we would get our loan approved. There is every reason to use this service and absolutely no reason to look elsewhere. If I could rate her higher than 10 I would every time!

Michaela made this process so fast and simple, we were blown away. Guaranteed Rate will always be our first choice.

Absolutely , Michaela and her staff were amazing. They simplified the process and just had a steady flow to the whole loan. From the appraisal, to the closing, they did everything they said they would. Friendly, accommodating, and timely. Can't thank them enough !!!!

The absolute best loan experience of our lifetime. We have purchased ten homes so far, and this was the easiest and least stressful process we have ever experienced. I would recommend Michaela and her team for any home loan or refinance. We were concerned with both of us working in the cannabis space, but they put our minds to ease, and it was all a very positive experience, and we can only thank this team for that! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Michaela and her team did a phenomenal job supporting our home purchase. Michaela ensured we had a note of funding on a weekend while she was skiing! Also her team was good to deal with, and provided specific requests for documents needed. Great job all!!

Michaela and her team are the best ever. From start to finish, they were incredibly trustworthy and knowledgeable, quick to respond, and made sure all of our questions were answered in a timely fashion. As first time home buyers, they made the process easy and enjoyable. We are so grateful for Guaranteed Rate and couldn't love our new home more!

Everything went very smooth and seemed to be well coordinated. The online signing of the documents worked seamlessly - I wish the actual closing could also be done online.

Our loan officer was very helpful, but the process seemed somewhat burdensome and redundant.
Stephen T. - Boulder, CO | Dec. 2015
Michaela Phillips was my loan officer for this re-fi. She also did my mortgage when I originally purchased the property 3 years ago. Michaela is the reason that I choose GR. She is amazing! She goes above and beyond in running scenarios, giving options, and answering my many questions. Top score goes to Michaela!!

Micheala was personable and did a great job with this loan! Everything has been grand so far!

Not only was the experience positive, it was also the most efficient. Most bank's will take 30 days or more, and Michaela was able to get everything accomplished in 3 weeks! I got a personalized experience with Guaranteed Rate. The team I worked with was prompt with all communications and made sure to achieve the best rate for my situation.
