sales at the core of our process
We’re focused on supporting our producers to help them double their purchase business. We have a program that’s statistically proven to grow an originator’s purchase business by more than 100% over a period of 12 months. Learn about our company Core Values.
The POD processing model is very different. Before coming here I spent much of my time managing my loans through the process. Now, I focus on taking new business and even have time to have lunch and build relationships with my referral partners. I have significantly increased my business since joining Guaranteed Rate and I am much happier.

Industry Best Technology
World’s First Digital Mortgage solution
Our Digital Mortgage solution is designed to save you, and your borrowers, time and money. For our loan officers, it means a more streamlined process, faster closings, well informed borrowers and top-notch customer service.
Our innovative Dashboard allows our loan officers to view their pipeline at a glance. It provides an overview of goals, business stats, loan milestone updates and much more, all in real-time.
Loan Status Email Progress
Our automated loan status emails are triggered at key loan milestones, providing clients with regular information about their loans in process. Our loan officers don’t even have to think about hitting send!
Referral Partner Tools
Gateless is our exclusive, free website designed to help real estate agents double their business and dominate their market with help in four key areas: Marketing, Business Development, Team Building and Smart Technology.
Guaranteed Rate’s loan process, called the POD Model, is the backbone for getting loans closed quickly.
This unique and proprietary business model elevates the level of the loan officer to a manager/CEO of their team. This allows a Vice President of Mortgage Lending (VP) to maximize the highest and best use of their time to growing his or her business. Once loan files have been delegated to their processing team, the loan officer audits the file through our online systems, updated in real-time.
All of my clients use our Digital Mortgage solution and digital doc upload and it’s been a total game-changer. By the first conversation, I’ve already reviewed credit, income and assets. What used to be a one-hour call now takes 20 minutes.
