Joseph McBreen, owner and senior loan officer of The McBreen Group within Mortgage Services III, has joined Guaranteed Rate Inc., as a vice president of mortgage lending.
McBreen brings 10 years of industry experience to the company in addition to a sizable database of clients and referral sources. As a loan officer, he has closed an average of $40 million per year.
“The reason for my success is hard work and having confidence in my team to help me process and close my loan applications,” McBreen said. “Setting and managing customers’ expectations is the key to smooth transactions and happy clients, who will refer me over and over again.”
Chicago-based Guaranteed Rate has made Crain’s Chicago Business “Fast 50” list four years in a row and was voted the No. 1 mortgage lender in a survey of Chicago-area Realtors by Chicago Agent. The company funded $6.9 billion in loans last year.
“Guaranteed Rate is as advertised.” McBreen said about the merger. “It is clear that by focusing intensely on the client’s experience and the Realtor relationship, my goals of achieving greater success in the mortgage business will be very attainable with them.”
