Mike and his team were able to help me close in 15 days on a condo. As a first time home buyer they took the time to guide me through the process and addressed any questions I had in a timely manner. I am very appreciative of the level of professionalism and service provided.

Mike, you and your team absolutely rocked this. I understand that a 15 day close is a huge task to undertake, and I truly appreciate all the work you guys put in to make this happen. Thank you for everything!

Being first time home buyers, my wife and I didn't understand any of this world's house buying lingo, but John Hunter explained everything in a very comprehensible way to us. We had just settled into our new house last week, and we couldn't be more happy or thankful!
David P. | February 2019
The whole team worked together to help me understand the process and what was required from me at each step. They were super friendly and helpful and kept me notified of what was going on throughout the process

My husband and I were the first time home buyers and Guaranteed Rate made the loan process extremely easy for us. The entire process was smooth, and we were able to close much more quickly than anticipated. Our loan officers were extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. I would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate to anyone looking for a mortgage.
Rachel D. | October 2018
I had initiated a refi loan with my mortgage bank about 3 weeks before I had switched to Guaranteed loan, which I heard of through another satisfied customer. My bank was stringing me along. Either I wouldn’t hear anything for weeks and when they did reach out, it was to ask for more info, delaying my refi. With Michael Murray, everything was clearly asked for up front and follow through was quick and he would respond same day if I had any questions. I am very satisfied. Thank you for making...

Mike was great and very responsive to my requests! It was my first time obtaining a mortgage for my first home purchase, he made it as stress-less as the whole process could be.

Ebrahim E. - July | 2018
Michael Murray and the rest of the people at Guaranteed Rate were phenomenal! I appreciated how he answered all my questions. He didn’t just “robotically do his job”. He cared and explained things in a way that made buying (and financing) the home purchase very understandable. I would definitely recommend Guaranteed Rate to my family and friends. Again, my heartfelt thanks!!
Michael H. | July 2018
The process was easy and ran smoothly.
Kelly S. | June 2018
This was my second experience working with Michael Murray on a home mortgage. In both instances, Mike was readily available whenever I had a question or concern. He helped me through any complications that arose and his team was prompt and helpful. When our closing date fell through, Mike walked me through the rate lock options available and worked with me to make the best decision for my family. Thank you Michael and team!
Craig Y. | June 2018
This is my second loan with Guaranteed Rate and Michael Murray and his team have been excellent.
Sara R. | May 2018
As first time home buyers, why wife and I were a bit intimidated with the loan application process. Michael Murray and others put us at ease and guided us each step of the way
Alejandro D.A. | May 2018
Michael Murry & Guaranteed Rate were by far the best lender I spoke to during this whole process. I appreciated most that the answers to all of my questions we clear & direct. Also, the numbers never changed and, again, we’re clear and consistent throughout the process. I really felt the other companies I spoke to were all quite the opposite, so when it came down to it the choice to put my trust in Michael & Guaranteed Rate was clear.
Zachary Z. - May | 2018
Michael Murray and his team were great. I would recommend him to anyone needing a mortgage loan. He was always helpful with all of my questions throughout the process and was quick to respond to any concerns or questions.
Eric H. | March 2018
I honestly could not have been more happy with my experience using Michael Murray and his team. Everything felt seamless. The process of buying a home can be so stressful and I never felt this from my interactions with your team. So very happy!!! Thanks!
Rachel P. | March 2018
Michael Murray and his team did an excellent job in guiding me from telling me what documentation they needed from the beginning. I provided what they needed and had my clear to close in 10 business days. I am a real estate professional and this is the fastest financed loan I have ever participated in...this time being the client. Mike Murray and his team get 10+ stars in my book. They are organized, punctual, responsive, and are a delightful team with whom to work. Thank you, Mike! You are...

Dawnmarie D. - Oak Park, IL | JUL 2016
Mike Murray was a wonderful loan officer. He made it very easy as a first time home buyer to understand the process and was available to answer questions when needed. I would highly recommend guaranteed rate for anyone who is looking to purchase a new home.
Krista W. - May 6, 2016
Michael Murray has been fantastic to deal with both times we have gotten a mortgage. First in our first time he was attentive and informative. Then, in our refinance he was able to help us out substantially. He is highly recommended.

Rodney F. -Chicago, IL | MAR 2016
Michael Murray and his team were absolutely fantastic to work with. While the amount of paperwork was a bit daunting, I understand that this is from regulations and not simply business practices. Overall the experience was very good, and I truly appreciated being able to email with and call consistent people. I truly appreciated in particular that I could call Michael and ask him questions about language or procedures, and he explained things to me in terms I could understand. I am very...

Once I met with Michael, he explained in detail what was needed and why, it was great.
Roy D. – Evanston ,IL | June 2015
Michael Murray and his team provided exemplary service in my recent refinance of my residence in a western suburb of Chicago. It would be hard to imagine a smoother process in refinancing a home than what my wife and I experienced. I would highly recommend Michael Murray and his team if you are seeking purchase financing or a refinance of an existing mortgage in the Greater Chicagoland area. Thanks to all at Guaranteed Rate and specifically to the Michael Murray team for making what is...
Chris G. – Oak Park, IL | May. 2015

Nancy B. - Riverforest, IL | Nov. 2014
Mike was one of my all time favorite people to work with.
He is very direct and to the point which I really mesh well with. Even though the whole mortgage process is brutal, he made this entire process relatively painless!

Hey, check out this amazing review from Josh about Michael!
"After two times working with Michael Murray, I have found him to be extremely personable, hardworking, trustworthy and willing to answer any questions. He was able to secure the exact loan we wanted and got us a far better deal than I was able to find from several local banks. I would work with him again for any future mortgages. He is the type of guy you want to invite over for dinner just to hang out after all the papers are...

Hey check out the amazing review from Alejand from Michael!
“I worked with Michael Murray at Guaranteed Rate and he was more than willing to answer all our questions and assist whenever needed. Michael even made it a point to attend the closing, which was great to see personal touch. Thanks again Michael!”
Alejand D. -- Chicago, IL -- 02/2013
Everything went very well. This is my second transaction with Guaranteed Rate, both times with Michael Murray, and I have been absolutely pleased. With all the options out there for mortgage companies, it is hard to know which are good and which are not. I no longer have to worry about that problem.
