Derek and Greg recommend Ken Steiner

Ken was an amazing help in our recent refinance. He and his team are responsive and kind, and we felt like he had our best interests in mind throughout the entire process. Whenever we had questions, Ken was quick to answer and make sure we felt educated and at-ease. We loved working with him and would absolutely recommend him.

Micah Marter recommends Jeannet Gil

Registered Nurse

If it wasn't for Jeannet, buying a home for the first time would have felt like the most daunting task imaginable. She was extremely helpful each and every step of the way and was so personable. Really made my girlfriend and I feel like we were her main priority. I cant thank her enough for assistance and would strongly recommend her!

Erin Gallagher and Dimas Palomera recommend Jeannet Gil

Research Scientist and Technician

We connected with Jeannet in 2017 for our first time homebuyer's class, and we knew right away that we would come back to her once we were ready to proceed with the purchase of our first home. And, we are so grateful we reconnected again, as Jeannet is so prompt and clear in communicating, and works diligently to provide a thorough, supportive service. If we are ever in this position again, we will definitely seek Jeannet's assistance again.

Patti Keenan-Cooley recommends Ryan Maxwell

Project Manager

This is the second time I have worked with Ryan on a refinance. Ryan does an amazing job of letting you know up front what to expect and what he can do. There are no surprises everything is known up front. The best thing I can ask for is doing business with someone who is honest has integrity under promise and he over delivers. I love the fact that Ryan and Beth work so well together and take care of everything hard to use the word seamless but that is exactly what they produce a seamless experience. When the need arises I will come to Ryan again and also recommend Ryan to anyone I care about without hesitation.

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.

Bob S recommends Ken Steiner

We have worked with Ken since 1998 and been friends for longer than that. Recently, we decided to relocate to Vashon Island and Ken played a pivotal role at numerous steps in that adventure. At every juncture, Ken's information was crystal clear and on point, his attention to detail unflagging and, despite the emotional strain on us of such a weighty and big-number decisions in an unfamiliar realm, Ken's energy, humor and outward calm helped us keep both oars in the water throughout. He even reached out on a weekend with advice to lock our interest rate during a particularly turbulent market twitch, saving us substantial expense. Ken is a top-flight pro, a super calm hand at the tiller and, we hope, a life-long friend. Couldn't ask for a better loan officer, and you can take THAT to the bank!

Ruben Chi Bertoni recommends Jeannet Gil

Program Manager

when I turned 25 I had a dream. I wanted to own my place by the time I was 30. the issue was how. being young and inexperienced in owning anything, I knew I had a lot to learn. when I felt financially stable to make the next step, I was connected to Jeannet.

From the moment we meet I felt like she not only understood the guidance I needed but why owning my own place was a dream of mine. the process to me seem daunting, but she broke everything down and explained everything extremely well. We developed a plan as to the things I needed to do ( improve my credit, take the homeowner class, etc). then when it came time to find my home she connected me to Dan Tapia, my realtor, who was just as amazing and knowledgeable. the process was smooth and I found my dream place fairly quickly. through the process I felt supported, guided and worry-free.

Jeannet and her team at Home street bank helped realize my dream to own my own place . It's unbelievable, that I got the keys to my condo on my 30th birthday. words alone cannot express my gratitude and joy
I highly recommend Jeannet and her team to anyone that comes across this!

Devona Walker recommends Shellane Adams

Product Manager/Homebuyer

I would not be a homeowner today if not for Shellane's diligent professional and attentive treatment. She was a huge asset and as a first-time homebuyer I relied heavily upon her guidance. It was a joy to work with her.

Dana Shay recommends Shellane Adams

We worked with Shellane on our home purchase in 2014 as well as on numerous refinances since. She is a joy to work with, incredibly responsive and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to home buying and the current market trends. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else and recommend her to all my friends and family.

Jamie Siev recommends Shellane Adams

Administrator II

I was referred to her by my mom, who was thoroughly impressed with her experience of buying a home through Shellane. When we decided it was time for a bigger space for our growing family, my mom urged me to contact her, and I am so very glad that I did!

I’ve worked with Shellane twice now. The process of buying my second home was so much easier than when I bought my first house. The experience was worlds different! Shellane took the time to answer all of my questions in a friendly and ensuring manner. She was extremely knowledgeable and took the extra effort to explain things in layman’s terms for someone like myself. The process was so painless, that I didn’t hesitate to go through her when it was time to refinance that same house 5 years later.

It’s amazing to venture into new phases of your life knowing that you have someone like Shellane taking charge of everything behind the scenes. When working with her, I know I can rest easy. I can’t imagine working with anyone else.

Thank you, Shellane 😊

Karie Carbone recommends Jon Bruch

It was wonderful working with Jon for our first home mortgage! He was quick, helpful, and was able to answer all of our newbie questions without pause. We had spoken with several other lenders with confusing spreadsheets and hidden costs and Jon was able to walk us through comparisons of quotes and help us understand all of the lending jargon. I would not hesitate to use Jon for any future needs or to recommend him to a friend or family member. Thanks again!!
