Guaranteed Rate Inc., which has seen its headcount grow by more than a thousand people over the past three years, expects to hire a record number of new employees this year to handle expected record originations.

The Chicago-based mortgage banking firm previously reported that it maintained a national staff of fewer than 2,400 as of Dec. 31, 2014.

But by the end of last year, Guaranteed Rate reported that employee count on a company-wide basis had ascended past 3,400 employees at the end of last year.
