Guaranteed Rate, Inc., one of the largest and fastest growing independent mortgage lenders in the country, has just announced it is opening a new branch in Dallas-Fort Worth. Nick Marascia, who will be the branch’s manager, said Guaranteed Rate is approaching the new opening with considerable ambition.
“Our goal at the Dallas Branch is to become the premier lender in the DFW Metroplex.” Marascia said. “We intend on hosting and promoting many charitable events to give back to the community, including our first ‘Self Defense Class’ complimentary to local licensed Realtors.”
Marascia has been with Guaranteed Rate for almost seven years, and brought in $84 million in volume for a branch in Chicago in 2010.
“Our success is directly related to the respect that we show everyone involved in the transaction,” Marascia said. “We really enjoy helping borrowers buy their dream homes and working with Realtors to ensure their client’s expectations are met on every transaction.”
In addition to being included on the Crain’s Chicago Business “Fast Fifty” list of the fastest growing, most innovative companies for the past four years, Guaranteed Rate was also honored as the number one mortgage lender by Chicago-area Realtors in an independent survey conducted Chicago Agent Magazine in 2010. Now, Guaranteed Rate is looking to be equally successful in Dallas.
“We look to bring on the top loan officers in the Dallas area so we can help them grow their business,” Marascia said. “Our product offering and Realtor portal are a fresh new addition to the real estate community and I’m confident that we’ll be able to win over many new partners in the coming years.”
