About Us

Equity Northwest is licensed to assist clients who reside in (or have property located in) the state of Washington.  We opened our doors over 25 years ago.  During that period of time we have helped thousands of customers achieve their dreams – be that of home ownership, saving money by lowering their interest rate, major home improvements, buying a rental home or consolidating debt. Our business comes from repeat customers and the referral of their friends and family, which is a testament to how we treat each client.

We offer all types of loans from conventional and jumbo to FHA, VA and USDA.  As a mortgage broker, we have the ability to shop many lenders to find the perfect fit for each client. However, the reason we stand above the rest and the reason to choose us, is our knowledge, experience and communication before, during and after the loan process.  We avoid issues, last minute problems and make sure you know what’s going on, all the time!

This is Our Commitment to you:

    • We appreciate where you’re coming from. We will treat you with the same care we would want for ourselves.

    • Your best interests are our top priority. We have the experience, resources, and savvy to advocate for your best interests, and that gets results.

    • You get a loan that fits your life. A good loan is more than a great rate. It has to work for your wallet as well as your way of life, and your goals as well as your gut. We take the time to understand your situation and match you with the program that makes the most sense in every way.

    • We teach you as much, or as little, as you want to know. From terms to timing to each line item and cost, we’ll explain the entire process. You will always know what to expect and when.

    • We keep you in the loop. We aren’t big on surprises when it comes to home loans. We keep you and your Realtor updated on the progress of your application at every step.
