Guaranteed Rate has opened a new office in the Bay Area as part of its expansion efforts in Northern California.
Top originator Dianne Crosby will lead the new branch, located on Mountain Blvd. in Montclair, as area manager. The 20-year mortgage veteran ranked as one of the country’s top 50 loan officers in 2019, according to Scotsman Guide.
“Our growth in Northern California has been truly impressive,” said Guaranteed Rate regional manager Ryan Ogata. “Dianne has been a real catalyst for increasing our business. The region at large has quadrupled its loan volume in the last four years. She has a long-standing history of building tremendous relationships with customers and partners in the area, and we are excited to see her continue to share her ‘Think Big’ mentality with others on her team.”

Guaranteed Rate has operated in California since 2005. The company said that the new office expands its current origination team in Northern California, one of Guaranteed Rate’s largest markets.
“I am thrilled to be part of Guaranteed Rate’s growth in the Bay Area,” Crosby said. “Guaranteed Rate truly has the best of the best, from its loan processors and originators to its leadership and technology. Working with the company and being a part of its growth in California has been the highlight of my career, and I look forward to continuing to support other originators in serving the state’s diverse and growing community of borrowers.”
