Simon helped me from the moment I asked about refinancing. He told me on the spot that he could help me after asking me some questions. The process was smooth and he assisted me along the way with all my questions very promptly. Simon is very knowledgeable about the market and goes out of his way to help you.
- Lorraine Delgado, Senior Marketing Coordinator
Simon was amazing. He took the stress out of re-financing our property because he made sure we had all of the paperwork needed to begin the process. We especially appreciated his professionalism at all times.
- Lois Rosby, Office Manager
Simon and his team,i.e. Geoff,did a comprehensive job of securing a favorable refi for me. They kept me informed of the process every step of the way. Made calls when I had questions and followed up with answers. They were very patient,as I tend to be somewhat of a nagger when I'm unsure of a situation/process. I would recommend his services highly. He was refered to me by someone who I respect immensely when it comes to real estate concerns and she didn't let me down with the referral of Simon G. Atik. Respectfully, Satisfied customer Barbara Williams

Working with Simon was a pleasure, and he really made us feel like our loan was a priority. Our home buying process moved quickly, and Simon played a critical role in ensuring that our offer was accepted, and that the loan came through without a hitch - all on a very tight timeline. He is highly knowledgable about his business, provided expert advice along the way, and worked with us to secure a rate that we were happy with. I'd highly recommend Simon, and am grateful for all his help
- Adam Besserman, Homeowner
Helpful, friendly service. Excellent guidance for a first time home buyer. We were under a tight time frame and they made it all happen well before our deadline.
- Timothy E. Los Angeles, CA
We were very happy with the patience, creativity, drive, and thoroughness of Simon and the warmth and responsiveness of his team. There were a few very minor moments when the staff made small errors while rushing, but it was dealt with right away and overall we had an excellent experience. We would recommend and work with Guaranteed Rate Affinity again.

I want to thank our Mortgage rep Simon Atik and his team including Casey and Geoffrey. They were extremely helpful to us and highly professional and it was a pleasure working with them and I plan on using them again
- Cathy H. Los Angeles, CA
Guarenteed Rate Affinity jumped through hoops to make sure that my fiance and I were able to close on a VERY short escrow. They were quick and communicative and honestly I think they made a miracle happen given the short turnaround time. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone, especially a first time buyer who may need some extra hand holding along the way. They went out of their way to answer EVERY question for us and responded at all hours of the day when we needed a quick response on something. Thank you thank you for everything you did for us!
- Jessica S. Los Angeles, CA
Simon and his team were truly amazing and we couldn't be happier! My wife and I were a first time home buyer, applying for a VA loan, and were a case of very unusual circumstance which required a lot of paperwork, but his team helped us tremendously. Every member of his team was a joy to speak to (especially Cathy - she was wonderful!) and were treated with the utmost care and professionalism. In little over a month from the time we were first introduced to Simon, we were able to secure a loan that exactly fits our need at the rate that we couldn't find anywhere else. We will definitely use GRA again, and will recommend them to all our friends and family!

We had a very good experience primarily because we were working with a superb representative, Simon Atik, and his very efficient and diligent colleague, Geoff Chavez. They could not have been better.
The entire process was very fast and efficient. Each team member knew his or her role very well. It was the first home purchase that was ready for closing early.

We have never received such great service on any loan in our life. The professionalism displayed by both Simon attic and his team was extraordinary. You should be proud to have him as a member of your team. As a disabled veteran he, without prodding, reached out and got the very best rate and saved all the fees. I was not aware of the program until he mentioned it.
