Tony was fantastic and helped us through every step. He calmed us through the stressful process of purchasing our home and made it as smooth as possible. We are already recommending Guaranteed Rate to our friends. Our lawyer even re-iterated at closing how fantastic the process had been. Thank you again.

Everyone at G-Rate did a fantastic job of steering me through the mortgage "maze" and helping me get a rush deal done long distance with the best possible terms to fit my needs. The communication and coordination between them, the realtor, and the title company was fantastic!

Jo Ann and her team are awesome! From beginning to end, they made us feel extremely comfortable. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and they efficiently and thoroughly explained everything to us. I would recommend their services to any potential home buyer."

Jo Ann Theriault and her team were very organized and communicated frequently with me throughout the process of applying for and obtaining a mortgage. They made the process very easy to understand and were very prompt in answering my questions. They partnered well with the rest of my real estate professionals to make my home purchase run smoothly. I would highly recommend Jo Ann and her team to anyone seeking a hassle free mortgage process.

Our realtor, Pattie Taylor, referred us to Tony Piotrowski and from beginning to end things went very smoothly. She indicated that Guaranteed Rate is reliably responsive to her clients and timely with lending at close and that proved to be the case for us as well.

"I have known Jo Ann for more than five years. She is a trusted and loyal professional with whom I thoroughly enjoy working. I have referred friends & family to Jo Ann and know that they are in excellent hands. Jo Ann not only has a friendly demeanor, but is incredibly knowledgeable in her field of expertise. I have had the pleasure of working with Jo Ann on multiple fundraisers and she is just as giving as she is caring."

Tony Piotrowski was recommended by a friend and I can see why. The process of obtaining a loan could not have been any more painless. I will absolutely use Tony in the future and recommend him to anyone needing a loan.

Sheryl Ackerson and her team are terrific!!
Mark W., August 2018
"I put off re-financing my house because I thought it would be a painful and a time consuming process. Tony was excellent. He made it so simple for us, from start to finish it was about a week. Would have been a week sooner if my home insurance company was on the ball like Guarantee trust. I would recommend Tony highly for the ease in getting my loan done and the constant communication through all the steps of the loan process. I just sat back and let them do their thing. Wonderful...
