Working with the right lender can make the experience of buying a home a dream. There are many competent lenders in Whatcom County.

When interviewing a lender to work with, I recommend keeping a few things in mind:

  • -Ideally, loans are closed in 30 days. Ask if your lender can do that.
  • -Sellers often prefer working with a local lender.
  • -Your lender will become intimately familiar with your finances. It is important to work with someone that you like and you trust. If you feel judged by a lender, don't work with them.

With all that said, I currently work with two preferred lenders. I will work with anyone, but these two lenders have a proven track record with me.
