CFO/VP of Strategy

Lisa was incredible! From the moment we started the process she was there by our side the entire way. Lisa was able to clearly explain our options and talk through with us recommended strategies that addressed our specific needs. She was responsive, respectful, clear and knowledgeable and it always felt like she was in our corner! Because of the pandemic, we were not able to meet Lisa but that did not impact the level of customer service we felt as we went on this journey and ended up with a beautiful new home! Thank you Lisa!

to whom it may concern,

I would like to recommend, strongly recommend Julio Valdez a Loan Officer for Home Street Bank. Julio is a very dedicated individual who works for his clients and follow through on every part of the process that is under his purvey.
Julio Valdez is extremely knowledgeable with the regulations and requirements needed to qualify a lender and also counsel them, he works his job to the convenience of the client and holds hours in the early time convenient to get a client's application entered on time.
Julio Valdez recognizes the importance of getting the loan to close and appreciates the recognition of the agents that refer clients to him. He closely follows the transaction and will call the clients and their agents promptly with information that may either require attention or to just inform of the progress.

It was a pleasure working with him, I can speak highly of his professionalism and dedication as well as superb work ethics.

Denise Glasper recommends Julio Valdez

Regional Director

During this National Pandemic, when the economy is so uncertain, we thought that our refinance process would drag out and it would be difficult to reach our Loan Officer. However, to our surprise Julio Valdez was on top of everything. He transitioned his home into an office with ease, and was available to answer our calls, and questions. Julio did not miss a beat. Because of his diligence and work ethic, we were able to complete our refinance process on time without any hassles.
If you’re looking for someone to educate you and keep your loan process moving forward, then we highly recommend that you consider working with Julio.

Carmen Dawson recommends Julio Valdez

Registered Nurse

I can't say enough about Julio and his assistant Keithleen; they are a wonderful team. My situation wasn't complicated, however due to unforeseen circumstances we all had to put in more hours than expected. Julio is knowledgeable and personable (imperative characteristics in my book). I was definitely overwhelmed; Julio along with his assistant walked me through each step. I had a million questions; they both took the time to explain and I never felt as if I was bothering them.

I thank you. My littles thank you. We are beyond happy with our new home.

Julio, his assistant Keithleen and the rest of their staff, including escrow staff that he coordinated with, did a great job in shepherding through a loan under difficult conditions (necessity to fund the loan in a very short period of time). I highly recommend him!

The process was very smooth.
