Our loan officer, Linda DeRoeck was great! She was readily available when my wife and I had questions and she helped to smooth the process for a quick close. My wife and I are extremely happy in our new home!

Dan Werdell was very knowledgeable and helpful. For a first time home buyer, I had nothing but help from Dan. I would and already have recommended him and guaranteed rate to others.

The loan officer was fantastic. He gave us a list of documents needed for the loan and helped through the process. Since the house was in a land trust we needed extra paper work from Chicago Title and Trust so he worked with our Attorney to get the necessary documents and went to Chicago Title and Trust and took care of land trust rider. I felt he did a great job and made the loan process almost painless.

Yale was my loan officer and his team was more than helpful during my loan experience. I did not just rate all high scores for the "sake" of it. Nothing was confusing, I didn't get hit with any curveballs, every number we discussed was exactly what ended up on paper. This allowed me to properly digest and be comfortable with all numbers from day 1. Thanks again so much!

I think our loan situation was probably almost as complicated as it gets with all of the moving parts we had going on. Yale and team did an absolutely outstanding job in getting us through this. I actually think he was as thrilled as we were at the closing. Thank you Yale and team for doing a great job throughout the entire process!

I was stuck in a 30 year loan with TCF Bank at an alarming rate of 6.68% (for big loan -- and 6.06% for small loan.) Even though I have excellent credit and made all of my payments on time, TCF told me there was nothing I could do to lower the rate, and they were making it very difficult to refinance. I thought there was no way out, until I met with TIM MIELING from Guaranteed Rate. Not only did he consolidate my two loans into one through refinancing, he dropped my rate to 3.5% (!!!) AND...

The process was very easy and straightforward. Peter made an effort to keep in touch constantly and make me aware of anything he still needed at various points during the process.

Buying a house is stressful. It's been quite a few years (over 25) since we have done so. Linda was always helpful, full of all the right answers and her experience and expertise made the process easy. We don't plan on ever moving again but if anyone we know is looking we will definitely recommend her.

"I have used Tim Mieling before for another refinance about three years ago. He was initially referred to me by my brother, who has done several loans with Tim. When someone comes back and does business with you again, there is no greater testimonial, especially with all the competition in the mortgage industry. Tim does a great job and I will continue to do business with him in the future."

Dan was excellent. He was understanding and timely in his responses to our questions. Dan was also professional throughout!

As a first-time Home buyer I think my loan officer did a good job in explaining and helping me to make my loan process a good experience. Thanks!

Peter Streff made the process very simple from the get go. I provided all the documentation he requested and he took care of the rest. He also kept me informed every step of the way regarding loan progress.

"Peter and his team were great! They worked with us through all steps of the mortgage process and truly they went above and beyond!"
