Drew Sullivan

“Just excellent from start to finish. We were originally going to go with an online lender, but the online lender surprised us with so many fees an unexpected delays that we were terrified that we’d lose our earnest money and the house we loved. Brian and his team helped us get a great rate and every interaction was prompt and professional. Brian and his team got our mortgage to close on time, and we’d highly recommend them and their concierge-like service. When we purchase property in the future, we’ll go straight to Brian and his team. Well done!”

Chivonne Scott

“Once again my husband and I are very pleased about the work Brian Manning and his team has done!Brian and his team were very professional and made it a very easy process.They were willing to help in anyway possible and if we had a question or concern Day noon or night they were there, all questions were answered in a timely matter. I really can’t express how easy Brian and his team made everything go so smoothly.We highly recommend them!!”

David Remmert

“Brian and his team were awesome. From the first call to the last he was responsive and timely. We had some last minute adjustments on Wednesday prior to Friday closing and he was on it with restructuring the loan on a dime. His associate Alexis was great about letting me know as soon as she did about documents. Using DocuSign and the guaranteed rate portal made everything so smooth and I was notified immediately every time a new signature or document was needed. We couldn’t do a flash close because of the last minute changes but I was able to review most of the closing documents a week before closing. I really can’t say enough about how easy Brian and team made everything. Thank you manning team!!”

Andrew Giordano

“My wife and I successfully closed on our first home in less than 30 days, due in part to Brian Manning and his amazing team! In the competitive Colorado market, it’s important to have a local lender like Brian who is easy to get a hold of, and who stays on top of important deadlines. There was even a last-minute snafu on our closing day, and Brian figured it out and was honest and communicative. I highly recommend Brian Manning and Guaranteed Rate!”

Ari Marcano

“I am so grateful for the patience, professionalism and honesty Brian Manning’s team delivered when working with us to provide a loan for our first home. Brian was always so receptive and gave us clear expectations for what we needed to qualify for our home loan .The team communicated with us in a timely manner and it helped me not go insane throughout the process of underwriting. Lidia was one of my favorites on this team, she would always be ready to answer all my questions and was so friendly every time we spoke. Communication between the team could improve a little but apart from that it was a smooth process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this team and their hard work because it shows! I was amazed at the interest rate they gave us. There is no need to look for other lenders. Guaranteed Rate is where to go!”

Kirsten McIlrath

“I researched lenders and was going to go with a ‘big name company’ before my realtor suggested Brian Manning, who is local in my area. SO glad she did! Going through the process of first-time home-buying is a big deal, and now I understand HOW important it is to have a lender that is super communicative, super responsive, transparent and actually local. I doubt that a ‘big name’ company could have provided me the communication Brian & his team did. They were in constantly in contact with me, immediately answered questions via email & phone, available on weekends, and very honest & transparent through the whole process. The electronic submittal process for the loan application was painless. Closing was a breeze. I really appreciated that!!”
