As Vice President of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate, Steven Maizes brings years of real estate experience and expertise to all his transactions. Steven was an All American basketball player at Wesleyan University and then graduated with honors from Yale Law School. Before joining Guaranteed Rate, Steve was a practicing real estate attorney for twenty-five years. He’s been featured on the CBS Evening News, in the L.A. Times, Washington Post, and continues to be a Guest Real Estate Lecturer at the USC School of Law. Steven and his team of mortgage professionals make the loan process as easy as possible for clients by employing the latest technology. Meticulous and proactive throughout the process, they carefully shepherd each project to its conclusion. If anything needs urgent attention, it’s dealt with immediately. Indeed, Steven’s favorite quote is, “Give good news faster, give bad news faster,” which actually comes from a very practical point of view; the faster facts are known, the quicker a resolution can be devised. This attitude has made him a leading mortgage banker of choice for many top realtors, CPAs and senior executives for the past 15 years. All one needs to know is that the vast majority of Steven’s business comes primarily from personal referrals and repeat business. His greatest accomplishment, however, is being the father of three beautiful, respectful children with whom he enjoys spending time.
