The whole team were the upmost professionals. The team leader Josh Numbers was incredible. Maddox was fantastic and explained the whole process with full transparency. Over all a great experience. And My new “go to.” They earned my business, and any referral business.

Maddox is by far the most honest and friendly broker my wife and I have worked with. He has held our hand through 3 refinances in the past 10 years and despite the see-sawing economy he has always made sure that we secured the best rates available. I cannot recommend Maddox and his hard-working team highly enough, and when we are ready to move again he will be the first one I call!
Howard Robinson – Software Architect
I shopped around through more than a dozen people and/or banks to find the right combination of low interest rates and the right team to work with and I chose Guaranteed Rate solely because of Christian. Christian was a tremendous help throughout our mortgage process. We were first time home buyers and had a very tight time frame for contingencies and escrow. He was very responsive to my emails, texts, and phone calls throughout and always a pleasure to work with. Christian coached and...

Maddox was great to work with and went out of his way to help my wife and I with refinancing our home. I would happily recommend Maddox to anyone.
Nathan – Home Owner
Very helpful whenever I had a question. Thank you.
David D. - September | 2018
My wife and I were introduced to Maddox at a critical juncture of our home purchase. He helped us navigate the complex (and frustrating!) process of procuring a loan and we are beyond thankful he came into the mix when he did. Simply put, we could not have accomplished our goal without Maddox’s expertise. He lived up to his reputation of getting the job done and did so in an efficient, professional and enjoyable manner – Maddox has an uncanny ability to simplify the arduous task of home...
Carlos Lopez-Hollis – CEO, CLH Enterprises, Inc.
Jeff and his team did an amazing job helping my husband and I through our first home loan process. We felt we were in great hands and all of our questions and needs were addressed. Jeff prepared us for the processes and was always available. My husband and I were in two different locations because of my work obligation which concerned us but Jeff assured us that there would be no problems and that was how it went. I am sure there may have been so issues but Jeff and his team made it smooth...

Maddox was a complete professional, guiding us through a very difficult loan process with many, many moving parts and personalities involved. It was a difficult process to say the least but Maddox was able to secure a great rate and program for us. I highly recommend Maddox for any home loan. A true professional.
Greg & Jenn – Investor
If you need someone to go to bat for you for your next new home loan, Maddox and his stellar team are for you. Maddox and his team worked tirelessly to help us get a new home loan. He did what he promised and worked hard to delivery. Where others quickly gave up, Maddox would not and he pulled through for us. Lending is tough these days but Maddox and his team will exhaust every resource they have to make your dream come true.
Nikunj Patel – Home Buyer
Jeff is wonderful! He greatly assisted us in our relocation! It was a tough move for us and being so new and unfamiliar with the area, he took his own time and experience to give us insight and really help us on our path to finding the perfect home! We felt confident that he was always looking out for our best interests! Look no further for the best mortgage lender in Santa Barbara!
Alisa W. – Santa Barbara, CA | APR 2016
Jeff did an excellent job of explaining and navigating us through the new TRID regulations. He was responsive to our questions, got us a great interest rate, and made sure we closed on time. Jeff was always available and we highly recommend him.
John H. – Santa Barbara, CA | APR 2016
Maddox Rees has helped me and my husband with four loans. He is a professional that pays attention to detail, and turns over every stone to make sure that you have the best deal. I enjoy working with Maddox because he gets the job done and is very personable. He was able to get us very favorable loan terms. Thanks to his expert guidance and knowledge of the mortgage industry, his attention to detail in helping us gather all the necessary documentation, and his efforts to make everything as...
Amy and Eric Ryan – Long-time Clients
Maddox, Jasun, and John were the right guys for me. I am a small business man doing business as a sole proprietor. With these new lending laws it is difficult to prepare the right information for the underwriters. Maddox and the team walked me through each phrase with an explanation of why and helped me get the proper info to the underwriter. My loan was approved but it seemed like going to the dentist at each phase. Without Maddox I don’t know how I would have gotten a loan. It was a pleasure...
John J. Ulman – Self-employed Home Buyer
Maddox got the job done and that’s what counts. Excellent communication throughout. He was able to navigate a complex international financial profile and had a Plan B and C ready when we needed it. Thanks Maddox!
Ken - Home Buyer
Applying for a mortgage is not a fun experience, but it’s even worse if you happen to be self-employed and need to borrow a rather substantial amount to bridge the gap between buying the next house and then selling the current property. We finally found the right property after looking for almost two years, but the sellers needed a short escrow. Fortunately, our agent referred us to Maddox Rees because he is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and experienced. Even when unanticipated hurdles...
Sylvia B. – Self-employed Home Buyer
My agent, Jeff Boshler, was fantastic.
Thomas K.– Santa Barbara, CA | May. 2015
Excellent in all phases. I will recommend Guaranteed Rate.
Charles J. -Montecito, CA | MAR 2016
Jeff was great I would recommend him to anyone looking for a loan.
Phillip F. – Goleta, CA | March 2015
Jeff's professionalism and industry knowledge helped make this a very smooth process even while working on a very hurried timeline (closing in 17 days). Jeff also makes the process transparent which makes for a trusting relationship. I will highly recommend him to friends and family seeking a competitive mortgage loan.
Ryan M. – Cupertino, CA | Mar. 2015
Made it very easy to refinance my loan.
