Contact was frequent and process was smooth.

Our team helped us through a very challenging closing process. Getting everything done during a pandemic was no easy feat but we had support through the entire process. Anyone would be lucky to have that kind of support when buying a home.

Both Steve Smith and Annette Price were fantastic. They communicated regularly with me with clarity and transparency at all times. Regardless of any small delays or bumps during the process, I felt they were always 100% honest and doing whatever they could to help me out. I have gone through many finances over the years with various homes and properties, and these were two of the most reliable and customer-oriented people I have ever dealt with in this industry.

Kevin M. -- Chicago, IL, 2/17/2014
Steve Smith is the best. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to buy or refinance. He was always available to me, even on short notice. This could not have been any easier. We always felt that we knew where the process stood, every step of the way.
Gregory W. -- Oak Park, IL 1/22/2014
Steve Smith and his team are the best. They handled our loan in approximately one month (application to closing), even though the holidays fell in the same period. I would recommend Steve and his team to anyone. He was always available to me, even on short notice - from the time we were considering making an offer through the day of closing. I always received an immediate reply, even if something needed to be researched further. We always felt that we knew where the process stood, every step of the way. I am a repeat client and I would not trust (or risk) the process with anyone else!
Gregory E. - January, 2014
"Steve Smith is an outstanding loan officer, incredible communicator, very professional, and motivated. With the team's frequent communication and the online setup, the application process couldn't have been easier. Everything went incredibly smooth and the title company performed our closing in home. Can't beat that! Thanks Steve!"
Brent S. -- Chicago, IL. -- 8/ 2013
Steve Smith was great to deal with. Always responded to voicemails and emails with any questions. Only had one small bump with a gift letter but otherwise I would strongly recommend him and Guaranteed Rate.

Steve,saved the day on a refi & new mortgage in CA.Steve took charge & was in constant communication.On the mortgage in CA,he was a TEAM leader,keeping everyone in both Chicago & in CA on task.Steve went above & beyond,when he had to step in & help the buyers lender over many hurdles.This was done gratis,which speaks volumes for what he can do as a knowledgeable professional & in doing the "right thing”.Out of all the moves & lenders I have worked with over the years,Steve is THE BEST,bar none. He is the type of guy that you would want to have a drink with-a true litmus test,in my opinion.
Steve recently re-financed my condo and got it done in record time! Highly recommend him!
I had a great experience working with Steve Smith and his office. Even during this busy time in the mortgage industry, I was able to get through the loan process in record time and got a very competitive rate. I would recommend Steve to anyone looking to secure a loan or refinance.
