Judy A. Bickell

Loan Originator/VP HomeStreet Napa Valley Home Loan Center NMLS: 251412

I have been in the mortgage industry for over 25 years and have worked on all types of loans and properties – residential, commercial, multi-family, and construction. I have lived in Napa Valley since 1967. I have a thorough knowledge and understanding of underwriting policies for both conventional and government loans. HomeStreet Bank offers Conventional, Jumbo, FHA, VA, USDA, Jumbo products, we also offer renovation and construction financing and equity lines of credit.

With my highly organized and great time management skills I help my clients navigate through the lending maze with ease. I believe good communication is the key to a successful transaction. I listen to my customers, find out what they want and why and then I can structure the best loan to accomplish their goals.

If you have a complex financial situation, I’ll help you understand your options so you can make an informed decision. I’ll provide competitive rates and fees, an extensive product line, prompt communication, and service that continues after your loan closes.

I am very excited to be a loan officer for the Napa Valley branch of HomeStreet Bank. Our priority is our customers, with unmatched service and great rates we won’t disappoint.

Repeat client for Judy
We've worked with Judy for 20 years now, for the purchase of our first house in Napa, through several refinances over the years, and most recently for our new house in Rocklin. That's a span of 20 years, and she has never disappointed. She's very knowledgeable, always happy to help, and above all is patient with people like me who have (sometimes silly) questions. Her care for us, her clients, make the financing process much easier, and certainly less stressful. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the most painless and efficient path to a refinance or home purchase.

Judy gave us great advice and found the perfect loan.
She followed up on every (sometimes exasperating) detail with humor and diligence.


She's a total pro.

I recommend Judy to my clients because for many years I was a Lender. I know the business and have found her to be superior in every aspect of lending on Real Estate. She is an asset to me as a Real estate Broker because she is up to date on all financing opportunities for my clients and I have never had one client ever tell me she was anything but "Top of the Line."

Judy and her team were beyond amazing getting everything we needed put together super quick. They were awesome at giving us all our options, making sure everything was done correctly and quickly, especially once they heard I was having a baby any day. They were also done way before the expected deadline. To say working with Judy and her team was nice and easy is an understatement. Thank you!

Judy and her team at HOMESTREET made the whole process of buying our first home totally and completely see through, they explained every step of the way, sometimes more. I would recommend HOMESTREET to anyone that is in search of their new home, or if you need to refinance your current home. This is definitely customers service with a smile at its best. THANK YOU HOMESTREET TEAM!!

Being first time buyers, my wife and I had plenty of questions and concerns. Judy did not hesitate to educate us and helped us on what was to my opinion the best buying your first home experience ever. Her team made everything much easier for us to have a home for our family. We personally know other people who have been helped by Judy’s team and we all agree on the great work they do to make thing easier when buying a home.

I've known Judy Bickell for about seven years. She recently arranged financing for our new home and in every instance, she was very kind, helpful and professional in our interactions. Her whole team at Homestreet was the same way and our experience with them couldn't have been better. I highly recommend Judy and her team.

It was a pleasure to have Judy assist us in buying our vacation home. She was always available to answer any questions. It was as easy and seamless as can be. Especially since we do not live local so everything was done by phone and internet.
It was so nice to finally meet her in person at our closing.

Judy was so supportive through out the whole process of getting my loan refinance with a great mortgage with HomeStreet bank. This made it an easy and stress free process. She was there at the title place for the signing and she was so sweet to give us a box of Sees candy. Judy is a professional, kind and wonderful lady. We love her!

My husband and I are first time homeowners and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide us and mentor us through the process! Judy was very patient with us and answered our thousands of questions. She mad us feel like a priority and fought every obstacle in order for us to buy our first home. I don’t think we could have become homeowners if it wasn’t for her! Thank you Judy!

We used HomeStreet based on the recommendation of our realtor Elizabeth Olcott (the beauty of utilizing an experienced realtor...), and we are so glad we did. The entire process was bot only smooth but we were handled with utmost professionalism by Judy and her team. These guys are experienced and using them will ensure your loan process goes off without a hitch. Thanks Judy and Elizabeth (for recommending).

We bought our house directly from the seller and Judy and her team provided us with support that we felt went above and beyond! She and her team were fantastic in helping us navigate this process, answered all of our questions, and were just overall an amazing support. We could not recommend Judy and her team more!

Judy and her team were above and beyond amazing. They helped us when we were in a tough situation and turned it into a big positive with such crunch time. They made me feel at such ease with everything and kept me informed. I am very thankful my loan was transferred to them and I look forward to working with them in the future. They all played such a big part and made home buying so special. I would reccomend them 100% of the time!

Judy and her team made the process of buying both fun and painless. Because we were losing our rental we were in a desperate hurry. Judy and her team understood that and went above and beyond to get our loan closed in record time.

Lifetime Client/Home Loan
I highly recommend Judy Bickell (HomeStreet Bank) and her team for home loans. Judy is an easy person to work with and always willing to discuss matters on the phone or on email. Judy makes you feel very comfortable with the loan process. Judy and her team are always willing to answer questions and keep you apprised of your loan. Judy has handled three of my home loans and we could not have been happier. I could go on and on but Judy is an honest and hard working person who will fight to make sure you get the best loan out there.

When we put our house on the market, there was quite a bit of inventory in what we were looking for in a new home. However, after striking out on 5 separate homes, and agreeing to sell ours in the meantime, we were left in a bind regarding where we would be going once our house closed.

Finally, we found another home that we loved, and had motivated sellers. The caveat was that the financing needed to come together in 2 weeks. When we told Judy this, she unblinkingly said "I can do that."

She and her team were not only on top of everything from there end, but in the specified time frame, but they were in contact with my wife and/or I every day to explain where we were in the process, what hang-ups we might anticipate, and how we would ultimately resolve them. At no point did we feel like we were unsure of where we stood.

Ultimately, we met our timeline, and have since moved into our wonderful new house, and could not be happier, in no small part due to the efforts of Judy and her team. Thank you!

When I was a Realtor, there's no one who's reputation stood out more than Judy's. I frequently heard her name as first on the list of recommendations to prospective customers - and I sent people her way myself. Just recently, my husband and I needed her assistance personally and we could not have been happier. Everything in our loan process was streamlined and efficient. She's someone who is so knowledgeable about all the ins and outs, including the best rates and programs - and yet also caring and with your best interest at heart. Her years of experience shine through - I don't feel there was a question she couldn't answer or an issue she couldn't solve. We put our full trust in her and were extremely satisfied with the outcome. Many thanks, Judy!

The team was more than helpful and came through at every turn. Even helping me with things outside the scope of the loans they secured for me. Thank you to the whole team!
