Ron and his team were consistently sane during a purchase seemingly high on insanity. They always provided good counsel in a timely and friendly manner.

The whole team of Tracy, Ron, Rob, Sadie and Chanel were extremely professional, responsive to my multiple inquires, patient and caring. The home buying process with them was a positive experience.

Ron Peake, Makena Levine and Anthony Saladino were my loan team. I closed a Homestyle Renovation loan in 30 days, and it was only possible because of their attention to detail and relationship-oriented approach to closing this business! Thank You!

Everyone that we dealt with at Guaranteed Rate, through the entire process, was great. Got back to us when we reached out. Explained everything to us along the way. Answered our questions, and most importantly did what they said they could do for us. They got the job done. Thank you so much.

From the beginning with Peter Streff , I felt comfortable and confident with the process and everyone involved made it easy and kept me informed every step of the way. Ronald Peake and Makena Levine, thank you for getting me to the finish line. I will hopefully be starting phase 2 which is the construction part and feel confident that this to will be a success. Thank you all for your hard work that you made look easy.

For my first time home buying experience I was pleasantly surprised by how efficient and easy the process was. I am very thankful for Ronald Peake and his team’s diligence. They were very professional, yet personal, throughout the experience.

A 203K loan is a complex loan BUT Ben Cohen and his renovation team led by Ronald Peake are a "mortgage dream team" that made the process easy! I will most definitely keep them top of mind for future lending needs. Thank you all!

I just wanted to send you and your team a quick note to thank you for all of your hard work and effort on the Smith loan. This loan definitely presented many roadblocks, but you went above and beyond to get this one to the closing table. I’m so appreciative as are the clients. Thank you again and I look forward to creating more success together in the near future!

I've heard nothing but nightmare stories about how impossible a 203K loan is. Mike/Ron and the whole team got us to close and we never once worried about losing the deal. We are grateful for the hard work this team or in for us.

Everyone I worked with at Guaranteed Rate was extremely efficient and consistent throughout the process. Communication was always clear and patience was practiced when necessary. The online signatures were very convenient! Overall I am extremely satisfied and glad I chose Guaranteed Rate!

I felt the team at Guaranteed Rate went over and beyond to help with my special circumstances and get everything taken care of in the most expeditious way possible. Thank you!

The team at Guaranteed Rate made the stressful process of purchasing a home such a pleasant experience. They were there to answer every question and concern I had, usually in minutes via e-mail or immediately over the phone. I was shocked at how available and responsive they were. Michele Stanisch and Ron Peake were incredible to work with, personable and knowledgeable. I have already tried to get my brother who is in the process of a 203K loan to ditch his process and start again with...

I was very nervous about this loan and any time I had concerns I had everything explained to me in a very friendly and helpful way. I am very happy with my loan service!

Ronald Peake was very helpful through the whole process and answer multiple phone calls from me with questions that came up.

My loan officer Ronald Peake was great! So friendly and personable.

Just wanted to let you know we are finally in our new home. With all the renovations completed, we have a new home on the interior. Almost every surface of the home was painted, finished, or updated in some form. We could not have had this home without the help from Ronald and his team. The process was tedious, but now that it's over it was all worth it. We are in the home we want to be in and in the neighborhood we want to be in. Good luck to you in the future. Keep doing what you are...

Ron, Andrew, and Chanel are awesome at what they do. I will be working with you all in the very near future.

Shimi and Ron did a fantastic job. They were very receptive to all my questions. They helped me resolve issues along the way. I really benefited from their mortgage expertise on home renovation loans.
Abraham W., New Jersey
Closing is done and construction has begun! We sincerely appreciate all of your hard work in getting this process completed quickly. It is hard to believe that we signed the contract on March 3 and closed on April 29. You and your team were absolutely amazing and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for guiding us through a very difficult process under very short time constraints.
John B. Cincinnati, OH.
Guaranteed Rate went above and beyond working with my family to obtain a loan. We made many changes throughout the process, and they were there every step of the way, even on nights and weekends. We appreciate all they have done, especially Mr. Ronald Peake.
Thomas C - Chicago, IL | Feb. 2016
Thank you, Ron Peake and renovation staff! Your personal attention was amazing. A short sale complicated by a construction loan is challenging to say the least. Your dedication to getting it done never faltered and I'm very grateful.

“Ron Peake was very helpful throughout the process. 203k loans are tricky products but your team has the skills to get them done and quickly. Kudos!”
Daniel V. Chicago, IL
Ron was a great help! He was professional and knowledgeable about the process and shared information with me along the way which really helped. He took every one of my 1 million phone calls with a great attitude and was always there to help.
Kelly M., Lansing, IL
Just wanted to let you know how happy my husband and I are with our house and I can say without a doubt that the journey was so worth it! The renovations are nearly finished and it is more than we could have hoped for! Our puppy loves it too!
I would recommend you to anyone I come across and I have had a lot of friends thinking about their own homes now that they saw we could do it!
Thank you for all your hard work that you put in and the late hours you stayed at work to help work out the...
