success from independence

There's a reason why more top producers work at Guaranteed Rate than at any other mortgage company. We have the proven combination of product, pricing and process, allowing our loan officers to sell and grow their business. Our proven formula works.

It’s the structure, technology and marketing tools that have taken my business to the next level. Our online application allows me to preapprove my clients anytime, anywhere. I’m now able to spend more time bringing in business versus taking an application or ordering an appraisal.

The biggest difference that GR has made in growing my volume is through its platform with so many investors to fit clients’ needs, the availability of GR staff to help with scenario questions or ideas and the motivation I get from listening to the National Sales calls, which inspire me to try harder.
