Glenn is one of the most organized people I know. He is smart, a hard worker and knows the mortgage business inside and out. He has consistently exceeded all of my expectations. He utilizes heroic client service to do whatever it takes to get the real estate financing on a transaction completed. He always obtains the best possible financing terms for my clients and makes my job, as a real estate broker, that much easier.

I was referred to Guarantee Mortgage through a business associate. I had been in discussions with other mortgage brokers, but, after speaking with Glenn, I decided that he was the most professional, he was the best listener, he understood the market better, and ultimately secured the best rate. I had a very pleasant experience and I would recommend Glenn to friends and family.

Glenn has consistently given great service to my clients and me. I can rely on him to do as he says he will. I know the financing portion is in good hands with Glenn on the job.

We put offers in on multiple homes in the San Mateo area before we finally closed a deal. Glenn made it easy on us by making sure we had everything we needed for the financial end of each offer. He did a great job explaining our financing options and made us feel comfortable with the loan we chose. Since working with Glenn, we’ve recommended him to a number of friends and family members who have also been extremely happy with his services.

My wife and I just purchased our first home, which is also a multi-unit income property for us, so it was in many ways a complex real estate transaction. There were many challenges on the financial side, but Glenn was always able to come up with the solutions. I do not think we would have succeeded in our efforts without his knowledge, diligence, and creativity. He was instrumental in helping us from the initial pre-qualification process, to organizing our personal finances and credit histories, through the ultimate success of matching us up with the right lender and getting the deal done.

Stephen is a trusted advisor and great mortgage broker. He counseled and guided us through financing our first home, and proactively helped us refinance a few years later to take advantage of the market. He is extremely knowledgeable and insightful — a great educator. He is an excellent communicator and I always trust that Stephen puts our best interests first.

I think Glenn is the one of the best mortgage brokers in the business. He is a true professional… responsive, knowledgeable, diligent and persistent. With his help, the refinance process for my loft condo was smooth and even pleasant. All this… combined with a fantastic rate. Highly recommend him.

Jeff helped us navigate the process very smoothly. We were using the Teacher Next Door program, and Jeff was familiar with the process and the players involved from the city side of things. We're really happy with our new mortgage. Thanks Jeff!
Glenn helped me make my dreams come true. I have referred him to many of my friends. Thank you Glenn.

Stephen Barber is a fantastic mortgage consultant! I knew nothing about the process of buying a condo and he made it easy and transparent for me with great patience and a wonderful sense of humor. I have a busy practice and truly appreciated his exceptional efficiency and professionalism. I'm really happy with the work he did for me and for the many friends who recommended him.

Jeffrey made my refinance easy! His professional yet pleasant attitude allowed us a stress free refinance. He was up front about the whole process and we saved a LOT of money over the life of the loan. I look forward to doing business with Jeff again but I probably won't need to because this loans a keeper.
I refinanced my home mortgage with Guarantee Mortgage earlier this year, and was extremely happy with the process. My initial worry was how long the refinance would take. Everybody and their brother was refinancing at this time, and I heard lots of stories of the process taking months and months. From day one, Glenn established a realistic schedule, and most importantly stuck to the schedule. My refinance was conducted professionally, successfully, and completed within a time frame acceptable to me.

We are very grateful to Stephen Barber for his terrific work in helping us with the home buying process. At every stage of the process Stephen worked with us tirelessly, explained every aspect of the process to us, kept us informed of developments, and answered all our questions. Stephen and GMC did a great job, and we recommend them very highly to anyone seeking to finance or refinance a property.

Buying a house is stressful, especially when its the first time and you aren't filthy rich. Jeff was good at explaining everything and reassuring me when I started worrying. His sense of humor and calm demeanor helped immensely, as did his ability to pick up the phone and talk to all the right people at the right time. The whole process took what seemed like forever (9 months), but Jeff managed to cobble together no less than 3 loans and a miracle occurred: owning a house in San Francisco! I have already referred friends to him for refi and home buying and they are happy customers, too.

Stephen is FANTASTIC! He's helped us through two home purchases and one refinance. He's also helped other members of my family. He's honest, pragmatic and knows his business.

I was working with another lender before I was introduced to InterBay. Ten days before escrow was supposed to close the other lender said they could not do the loan.With only 10 days to go I was at risk of losing my dream home. I called Glenn in a panic and he basically said “no problem”… Not only did he stay calm and collected under extreme duress, but he was a true professional in handling the complications along the way. I had my loan within a few days and I have Glenn to thank for it.

If I was a first time buyer utilizing one of the many special program available, I'd want Jeff doing my loan. Jeff has more experience with these programs than anyone else in our company. He is also very knowledgeable in conventional and jumbo loan financing. Do yourself a favor, call Jeff today.
My wife and I have worked with Stephen several times over the last 8 years for obtaining loans for both purchasing (2) and refinancing (2) our homes. Stephen was fantastic through all of the loans that we obtained. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, detail oriented. When you work with Stephen, he does not tell you I "might be able to get you this really low rate if you do a, b, c", he will tell you from the beginning what % interest loan you can get and guess what, you get the loan!

Home purchasing or refinancing can be a very emotional, stressful, trying experience. My wife and I looked for professional assistance to alleviate some of the anxiety associated with the process. A proven professional, Mr. Rodriguez was approachable,understanding, patient, and thorough. The efficiency that he demonstrated in responding to our requests and our Realtor’s requests provided us with a sound piece of mind. We highly recommend Mr. Rodriguez to assist with your home finance needs.
