Ken Allen has been my loan representative for over 20 years now and I will always continue my business with him as long as he is available! My family has also done business with Ken and would highly recommend him. Trust is a huge step when searching for who to request a loan from. Ken has helped me with every loan I have ever received giving me truthful advice and answering many of my questions while being very upfront in his guidance. Ken is a straight forward guy who will not jeopardize his reputation if something does not seem right. He is an expert and I have let him lead the way in all of my loans and I have never been surprised or felt taken advantage of. I rarely write any reviews but I believe it is worth taking the time to let others know that Ken is a great honest guy who truly only looks out for you.

I first did business in 1996 as a new husband and father. He helped us as a young couple get into our first home. When we remodeled, he was there again to help. I had not worked with Ken in almost 15 years when I gave him a call again. He remembered everything about our past relations and once again, Ken and his team delivered. The entire process went smoothly, as always with Ken. Ken values the relationship in the transaction, and that is very important when making such a big "life" decision. Just saying thank you, isn't enough, but thank you

I have worked with Ken Allen on a lot of loans and he always is the one I turn to with unique situations and I can rely on him to have knowledge and experience to get loans for my clients. I have used Ken on my two daughter's loans when they bought their first homes which that shows how much I trust Ken. Nothing is more important that "Experience" and Ken is the best!

Ken and his team were amazing. They went above and beyond to help me close on my condo. As different items came up they were fast to respond and maintained the target date I wanted to close.

Experienced is the word that comes to mind when I think of Ken Allen and his team. This was the second time I've had the privilege of working with Ken and the homestreet family. He and his team were knowledgeable, efficient and great to work with. In the future I will not go anywhere else.

We were looking for a quick close on our Estate property. Kevin and Ken made it happen within 3 weeks. Great care and service with daily follow up. There were times we were frustrated with the amount of information requested by the underwriters, but at the end of the day the loan was approved and closed on time!!! Thank you and looking forward to working with this team on our next purchase, Cheers!

Ken Allen has been my loan officer for many loans I have had over the years for new financing as well as refinancing of homes.
He is always positive, creative & "can do" attitude no matter how difficult or seems impossible to get the loan done, when other mortgage company loan officers couldn't get it done.
I can say enough how grateful I am to have Ken to do all my home financing needs and I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs home financing.

He has many connections & even referred a couple of real estate agents when I needed to sell my house quickly and the agent was proactive to facilitate to get the house ready to put it on the market & sold in just a few days.

Ken's assistant, Kevin is also very helpful to get the loan process expedite by keeping updates of the process & communicates constantly to get all the documents in order.

I think HomeStreet Bank is very fortunate to have Ken working in the team.

Thank you!

Ken went out of his way to make a re-fi quick and painless. Definitely recommend Ken and HomeStreet bank if a loan is desired.

Ken Allen did a wonderful job of securing and processing a V.A. loan for us. He was fast, on time, efficient, and took the time to explain every step along the way including how long each step should take, what we could expect for results, and what our options would be if we didn't like the results of that step. As it turned out the whole process moved through quickly, smoothly, and completely just as he said it would, with no hold ups or 're-do's.

I have known Ken for over 20 years and he has obtained mortgages for us for almost that long. He is not only a top notch person, but also extremely skilled in his field. He's down to earth, honest and has always looked out for our welfare. I would highly recommend Ken.

Ken was very responsive and explained all options and step by step procedures. The entire loan process was like a cake walk with his & Kevin's assistance.

After starting the process with another bank on another house, which was a complete disaster. My brother and sister-in-law introduced me to Ken Allen which was an amazing experience and after 4 years the customer service is still top notch and my loan has never been sold like so many of my other friends, would only do business with Ken Allen
