Vice President of Mortgage Lending
Michael Harrington helps his clients fulfill their dreams of homeownership, granting them a future full of possibility. Starting as a closer for a mortgage company 23 years ago, Harrington has since become vice president of mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate, consistently ranks as a top producer, and has earned multiple president and chairman awards from his company.
With his expertise in residential lending, Harrington serves everyone from first-time buyers to luxury clients. “We are known for thinking inside and outside the box when it comes to solutions and programs for buyers,” he says, adding that they attend all their closings and provide the same level of high-quality customer service and constant availability regardless of budget.
Taking a consultative approach, Harrington uses Guaranteed Rate’s digital mortgage process to prepare a cost analysis to help clients meet long- and short-term goals. “Having worked with many local lenders in the area, I find my rates are extremely competitive to our marketplace,” he says.
In 2017, Harrington was featured in MOM Magazine among the top 1 percent of originators in the U.S. and was a presenter at Todd Duncan’s 2018 Sales Mastery conference. He is a member of Business Network International and the president of a municipality district in the city of Katy.
Outside work, Harrington plays drums for his church and participates in fundraisers for Feed the Hunger and the Ballard House in Katy. Inspired by his children and wife, Harrington wakes up every morning striving to be the best dad, husband and worker he can be.
