I have purchased many properties over the years and Guaranteed Rate was the best experience I have ever had in obtaining a new home mortgage! They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful through the process.

Stephen and his team were fantastic. Very responsive and organized. He was even able to close our loan five days earlier than an already very aggressive close date.

Dean and Chance made my experience completely painless. I'm had never done anything like this before on my own and I was a bit nervous just because it was such a huge undertaking for me personally, they were both very sensitive to this and their patience and kindness made me feel nothing but comfort and trust. Between them and my real estate agent from start to finish the whole transaction was a piece of cake and I have already been telling people about Guaranteed Rate and specifically Dean and...

CJ Kerls is indispensable. We were so lucky to benefit from his expertise, patience, guidance & professionalism. CJ was our advocate--he partnered & celebrated with us every step of the way. He is a shining star & I cannot imagine our home buying experience without him. CJ well surpassed all my hopes & expectations & I will be forever grateful to him. A++++

Stephen Barber bent over backwards to help us. He was super professional, honest, and sensitive to our timeline.

CJ Kerls helped my partner and I close an impossible loan transaction last month in spite of the credit crunch. The home we purchased was a foreclosure, had code violations, had been illegally converted into two units (we were trying to finance it as a single family home... which is what it should be), and had recently been involved in a drug ring that was busted by the Feds (hence the foreclosure). In other words, even without the credit crunch it would have been challenging... and CJ got it...

Dan Olsen and his whole team at Guaranteed Rate are phenomenal! Couldn’t have imagined a better experience obtaining my loan for my first home. Dan Olsen especially is a consummate professional and just overall good guy. He was ultra attentive in making sure I was comfortable with each step. Open in communication at every moment in great detail. Shouts out to Brian Wilsey too. Brian went out of his way many times, one of which taking a last minute meeting at his office to help me go over...

Sylvia was an absolute pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly on our file and enabled us to secure a loan for the home of our dreams. The highest compliment that we can give is recommending Sylvia to our network and we already have done so several times. Sylvia is attentive, thorough, and an excellent closer. My wife and I feel fortunate to have worked with Sylvia and hope to partner with her again in the future.

Jeff and his team did an amazing job handling our refinance! We’d work with them again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much for taking good care of us!

Shane is trustworthy, responsive, diligent and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him without reservation.

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.

Kami was fantastic throughout the process. He was always accessible and make it clear and concise to understand the process. I will use Kami again and recommend him to friends and family.
Erik H., May 2018
Kami and his team were prompt, professional, and extremely easy to work with. We will absolutely be using their services again on our future re-fis!

I loved working with Melissa Milton! The loan approval process can be tedious and frustrating (this is the 4th property I have purchased), and this was about as painless as the process can be. I am also very appreciative of how fast Melissa was able to make things happen. In this crazy California Bay Area market where there are all cash buyers, it’s critical to be able to commit to fast processing/close, and without that, I might not have won the bid. I am a very grateful, very happy customer....

I LOVE SYLVIA! I was expecting the loan to be the hard part of the transaction, but it turned out finding a home and having my offer accepted was the tough part. I will absolutely call Sylvia for future needs or recommend any friends to her. Thank you!

Phillip and Robert are amazing. Made the process easy, spent countless hours on the phone and emailing with us. I can’t speak highly enough about our experience. Thank you.

Approximately one year ago, I asked a friend for an important referral. I needed a mortgage broker who could handle a complicated/difficult refinance of my home. My friend unequivocally recommended Tom, without hesitation. It is hard to describe how happy I have been working with Tom. He made what can be a tedious and challenging experience a pleasurable, and need I say, successful one.

We had a complex loan situation requiring 85% financing with two separate loans in a new condo project. Dean not only found very competitive loans but also followed through with every little detail and obstacle that the lenders were throwing at us, and helped us get our loan closed. Dean has knowledgeable staff and his office has many years of experience with loans in the local San Francisco market.

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!
