Legesm from Seattle, WA recommends HomeStreet Kirkland Home Loan Center

My husband and I recently worked with Stacia and her team to secure a home loan with Homestreet Bank. Stacia and her team were knowledgable, thorough, helpful, and always available!! Stacia was available on evenings, weekends, anytime you name it....she was always available to prepare pre-approval letters so we can turn around and quickly put in offers on homes. This greatly helped us be competitive and make offers quickly in the crazy Seattle market. I can't recommend Stacia and her team enough.

Jeannet really did a great job of explaining things in a way one can understand. She emphasized the important things to remember and made the process flow very smoothly. She worked in a very timely and efficient manner. She is very professional, detail oriented and motivated.

Sherry Miller recommends Jeannet Gil

homeowner

Jeannet was invaluable in the purchase of our home, handling everything from our initial education through the closing of the loan. She was always receptive to questions and answered them thoroughly, and we had a lot of them! We also had some special circumstances that needed to be navigated, which she did with ease. She pays attention to every detail. I would recommend her to anyone without question.

Gregory E Clouser recommends Kara Berglund

I have used HomeStreet Bank and Kara a couple of times... Appreciate how quickly and efficiently she gets things done when no one in our area picked up appraisal done less than 8 weeks because we had chosen to go with HomeStreet Bank and Kara ours was done in about half the time... I have recommended many of my friends buying a home or looking to refinance to get with her ... I will continue to do so as well as in the future if we need anything at all she would be the one we go to... I would like to thank you personally for the loans that we have gotten from you the great race and the quick response anytime we call..

Autrey Jeske recommends Steve Morgensen

Librarian

Steve Morgensen did a wonderful job helping my boyfriend and I purchase our first home. We attended his Homebuyer class and then contacted Steve Morgensen when we were ready to purchase a home. He explains things in a very down to earth manner, is unphased by questions, and is extremely kind and patient. He showed himself to be very knowledgeable in his line of work, and we are so grateful we got to work with Steve Morgensen!

Fred Cribbs recommends Kara Berglund

Kara and staff were great. Kara was available from start to finish. She treated us like friends, not just customers. We were able to ask questions and get a quick response. At one point, Kara was heading out to the airport, and we needed some letters to make an offer on the house. We had the letters emailed to us quickly. Kara is professional and efficient and makes the house buying/selling process a smooth transition. Her staff was the same. Always willing to answer a question or get needed paperwork to us. Home Street is lucky to have such Great people working for them. Thank You for all your help with our home buying experience. Very Respectfully, Fred and Christine

Joe Buck recommends Evan Goetzmann

Platform Engineer

Evan and his team did an outstanding job with our mortgage. This was our first time buying a house and Evan constantly kept us informed about what the process should look like, what could come up, and how we'd deal with it. We were using my wife's VA benefit to purchase the home and he talked us through how that differed from a conventional loan and also how it was sometimes perceived by selling agents. Just a great experience from top to bottom with everything executing flawlessly. We're already pitching out friends on Evan and will continue to do so.

Trish C recommends Steve Morgensen

Steve Morgensen did an excellent job working on my mortgage loan! From the beginning when he provided a detailed check list and explained the process to making the detailed information in each step simple to understand. He was very patient and knowledgeable with my many questions and his very quick response time was most appreciated

Ryan and Natalie recommend Evan Goetzmann

Amazon Snr Product Manager

Evan is the best! We've worked with Evan on our initial home loan and refinance and throughout he has been nothing but professional, knowledgeable and thorough. His assistance with the purchase of our home and finding competitive refinance rates has been indispensable. We highly recommend Evan if you're in need of a devoted broker!

Rob Wood recommends Ken Steiner

customer

This was the second time we used Ken to buy a new home. It should say a lot that we used him again, and on top of that I work in the financial world and had a lot of options. He and Kei are very aggressive (in a positive way) on getting documents and you in the right place at the right time. I would go to Ken for a third time if I need to (please let me stop buying houses......).

This is my 3rd time working with Kara on a mortgage and it was an overall positive experience. Kara is very knowledgeable in her profession and always takes care to answer and explain in detail which is incredibly helpful. Kara is super responsive and easily reachable always with a pleasant demeanor. Kara helps guide as needed providing all the information you need to feel confident you are making correct decisions. She is a pleasure to work with and I've been thankful to have her on my side during the lending process.

Chester B recommends Ryan Maxwell

Civil Engineer

Ryan was personable, thoughtful, and caring. He was also very knowledgeable about the in's and out's of the Seattle market. He not only helped us with making a well informed decision about our loan product, he also helped us reel in what we were looking for in a home and why.

Ryan was able to instill trust in HomeStreet as a lender and also offered us a very competitive rate. We got off to a bit of a false and rocky start on home buying through our own fault and Ryan stayed by us through it, and assured us he was here to help. This was our first home purchase and we felt very lucky to have Ryan and Beth by our side guiding us through this, at times, stressful process.

I could not imagine doing this without Ryan and HomeStreet. I would work with Ryan and Beth again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them. You can tell Ryan loves his job and loves helping people. I very much enjoyed talking to him and having him answer and explain the details of my many questions. His demeanor, actions and presence is never forced and put us at ease when it came to financing.

Thank you Ryan.

liza robbins recommends Kara Berglund

Director of Project Management (Advertising)

Kara is amazing!

I used Kara to buy a townhouse in Portland in February of 2015 after interviewing 4 other lenders. My husband and I found her to be the most down to earth and attentive, plus not at all pushy. She also came highly recommended through work colleagues.

We ended up loving Kara and HomeStreet Bank so much that when we moved to Denver a few months ago, I told our new realtor that we would only work with him if we could use our lender from Portland. His was slightly concerned that we could lose out in a competitive offer situation if sellers wanted to go with a lender they knew, and I said I'd rather not get the house than not use Kara. That's how great she is!

One of my favorite things about Kara is how patient and responsive she was both times that we worked with her. Looking back at my emails, there were days where we communicated back and forth over 30 times because I had a billion questions about closing, or wanted to consider many different financing offers. She was always happy to help, and explained things in a way that I could understand.

Also, both times that she has estimated what our final mortgage payments would be when making the initial offer, she was VERY close. This is a huge help in planning and assessing options. Her estimate worksheets are just detailed enough for the common bad-at-numbers person like me. She also nailed the escrow estimate in Portland so we never owed a huge amount at the end of the year (I can't report on our Denver house since we just closed). I felt like she was always looking out for us!

Tia Hough recommends Kara Berglund

Kara was so patient with us in the year long process of buying our home. She was extremely thorough in answering all of our questions, as well as those we hadn't even considered. This is my second home loan working with her and I wouldn't consider working with anyone else!

Rylee Fuerst recommends Jeannet Gil

Lender

Working with Jeannet was awesome! She helped us secure a mortgage, answering a ton of first-time home buyer questions. She always made herself available to help, and she was able to work with our agent to move quickly - closed in 19 days! I highly recommend working with Jeannet, especially if you are new to lending and want someone trustworthy!

Anne Lambson recommends Marcia Gonzales

Controller

Amazing! Marcia is professional, persistent, knowledgeable, a lifesaver for me in a quick close on my new condo. This would not have happened without Marcia saving the day. Her experience and professional contacts helped the process go smoothly and she closed for me 2 days early. 5 out of 5 stars!

Cathy Laetz recommends Ryan Maxwell

Research Oceanographer

Working with Ryan was a pleasure! Over the course of three years my husband and I put many unsuccessful offers on houses before we finally got the perfect home for our family. Throughout the process Ryan was positive, supportive, patient, and communicative. He thoroughly answered our questions and certainly went above and beyond in his efforts to enable the purchase our home. I highly recommend Ryan and his team!
