Rita G - La Grange, IL
I will always remember our home buying process for all the RIGHT reasons: from the start, Jill was a pleasure to work with, she is so friendly, so easy to talk to, and when she said she will always be available to answer our questions she meant it! Whether it was through email or a call, she always got back to us, she always explained everything in detail, she never rushed us off the phone or gave us short answers, she never made us feel like she was too busy for us. Yes, she has a lot of...

Tisa G - Brookfield, IL
My Loan Officer Jill Diethlem was absolutely great! She was a great partner. She shared her knowledge with me and guided me every step of the way. She took every phone call and replied to every email. She also was more then happy to answer my 101 questions!
From start to finish, Jill was spectacular. Do yourself a favor and at least have a preliminary conversation with Jill - she won't let you down! Our situation was such that we needed to get pre-approved ASAP in order to put an offer down on a multiple offer property. Jill pulled a rabbit out of her hat and we were able to get our offer in and accepted by the seller! I currently write this review in that property! Throughout the loan approval process, Jill was thorough, timely, and she always...

Jordan I. - La Grange, IL
I never met Jill until the date of our closing, and never did I think that I could like someone as much as I liked her, even though we had never met face-to-face. Jill is A-MA-ZING. We were very nervous entering this new chapter in our life: purchasing a home. And even more so about the whole FINANCING part of the process. We both knew very little about how everything worked, but boy did Jill set our minds at ease. Jill seems to be the most organised and thorough person I have ever met. I...
Katerina Z. - Brookfield, IL
Jill was extremely knowledgeable, professional and a tremendous help in assisting me with a home mortgage. It had been quite a while since my last mortgage so I needed someone who was able to walk me though the steps. Jill made sure I understood the process and was available at any time for questions. I completely trusted her and never felt like I was a bother no matter how many questions I had. She also helped me close in a short time frame. She made the entire process painless and I would...
Carol B. - Darien, IL
From the first phone call, our agent Jill Diethelm was a consummate professional. We were impressed by her level of knowledge and ability to explain the process in a language that we could understand. Even as we experienced hardship with our sale, Jill was there to add levity to the situation and worked with GR to ensure that our rate lock was extended at no cost to us. The purchase of our new home was a memorable experience because of the professionalism, care and attention that we received...
Combination of my loan officer and products. Jill is great. She was there to explain every step of the process and provide us with guidance along the way to purchasing our home. Jill is by far the most pleasant, patient, and knowledgeable person we’ve had the chance to work with during the buying process. She was happy to answer any question, she was lightning quick, and we always felt like Jill was in our corner and ready to go to bat for us. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.
Jill was amazing and the process was made as simple as possible. My wife and I joked about how we thought Jill might be a robot because she always responded to our emails within 10 minutes- whether it was 6:30am or 9pm. Jill was the perfect mix of friendly and professional, and we felt very comfortable working with such an experienced professional, especially since we were first time home buyers.
Jill was amazing and the process was made as simple as possible.

I would say that everything went through flawlessly and Jill was very efficient in getting everything coordinated.
Stephanie M. - Lombard, IL
Have now worked with Jill twice. Her personal attention and ability to explain things clearly have made the mortgage process, if not simple, certainly clear!
Ryan C. - CHICAGO, IL
As first time home buyers, we didn't know anything about the loan application / approval process. Per a friend's recommendation, we selected Guaranteed Rate / Jill as our lender and it was the best decision we could have made. To say that Jill treated us like family is an understatement. She went above and beyond to help us navigate through each important step and thoroughly addressed all of our questions in a way that was easy to digest. She is incredibly experienced, polished, organized,...
Joe & Stephanie Y - Lombard, IL
This is my 2nd home purchase with Jill. She set clear expectations of the process and was always willing to take the extra time to make sure I understood what it all meant. Jill truly made all of the difference in the home buying process. I feel as though I have made a lifetime friend.
