The Seattle Washington housing market is on fire!

It’s a sellers market.

Seattle Metro home values have gone up over 13% in the past year, and Zillow conservatively predicts they will rise a minimum 4.7% in 2018. This has created fierce competition among buyers.

Sellers are asking for more money and want conditions to be removed faster, otherwise buyers risk losing the property.

To be successful in Seattle’s ultra competitive market, you need an efficient mortgage broker who can get your financing approved fast, and closed quickly.

You’ve come to the right place.

Seattle’s Mortgage Broker can help you accomplish your home purchase goals with:

  • Low cost
  • Low interest rate
  • High service
  • ULTRA fast home loan financing

We offer a variety of products ranging from low down payment mortgages to 90% LTV million dollar cash-out refinances.

We consistently close in under 30 days on everything but most of our programs are quicker, taking 10 days or less to fund.

We’ve served hundreds of Seattle clients, and we are 5 star rated with Google, Yelp!, and Zillow on 65+ reviews. We work hard to earn your trust.

We are responsive, friendly, and work closely with you to make sure you have all the info you need to understand your mortgage options and make the best decision possible.

One word to describe Joe is WOW! We got our key in 2 weeks. 

Joe is on his game and a Broker extraordinaire. He's extremely responsive, professional, true to his word and doesn't miss a thing. 

We put in an offer on late Sat night. Joe called seller's agent to assure them our financial status, explained how he can close faster than cash offer. We won the house without entering a bidding war because of Joe. Joe closed us in 5 DAYS, literally. We spent our time waiting for the county and Escrow to catch up.  

If you are in the middle of shopping for a mortgage, give Joe a call. That is all you need.   
If you want to compete with all cash offers, give Joe a call. That is all you need.

I found Joe on Yelp after my first lender could not close on time. I had a special immigration related scenario that required consultation with underwriting. He gave me an answer within 4 hours regarding whether he can go ahead with my application.

If it was not for Joe, I was thinking about going with a lender which was offering me 5 1/2 ARM at 4.75% because of my immigration status.

Joe was able to offer me a conventional 30 year fixed. We were working on a very tight deadline but for Joe, it was no big deal. He is on top of things and keeps you posted on a regular basis.

Joe was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding us through the mortgage process. He was great at explaining everything to us clearly and presenting all of our options. We never waited more than 10 minutes for an answer to our questions, even on the weekends!

He made the whole process very relaxing, and made us confident that we understood what we were signing up for. On top of that he was able to close in 2 weeks!

Highly recommended!

My experience with Seattle Mortgage Broker, Joe Tafolla specifically, was amazing. I never felt overwhelmed or like I was being an inconvenience with all of my questions. You did a great job of educating me and guiding me through what was going on without me feeling incompetent for not knowing what was going on. Your ability to work so effortlessly with all of the other people involved with my transaction was fantastic. Also, your ability to close so quickly was a great bonus. I do not have enough great things to say in regards to my experience and cannot wait till we get to work together again! Thank you so much for working so tirelessly for me and getting me the best deal absolutely possible. You are the best!

FASTEST & MOST PROFESSIONALI've had the pleasure of working with Joe for almost two years and can easily say that he is one of the most professional and punctual loan officers I work with. I am an Account Executive for a large wholesale lender so I get the opportunity to interact with thousands of loan officers throughout every point in their career. It is easy to see that Joe is a true professional, he doesn't have issues or last minute 'surprises' in underwriting, his rate locks never expire and every one of his loans are ready at escrow days, sometimes weeks, before they were scheduled to be there. My internal staff love him, the underwriters bend over backwards to help and the senior level management fight over who gets to work on his files, because they are just that smooth. Watching him work is like an episode of the Twilight Zone, the guy is a machine. He originates, processes, closes and somehow still manages to blow people away with his 5 Star service. During the time I have known him he has always picked up his phone, realistically I think there have been two times in two years that he didn't answer within the first 3 rings. If you don't believe me, give him a call and see for yourself.

Joe Tafolla with Seattle Mortgage Brokers is an outstanding loan officer to deal with - he is thorough, organized, prompt to reply, and makes the loan process seem like a breeze. He was able to quickly analyze the best rate and terms for us, provide an approval letter, and get us to the closing in less than two weeks if we needed that, even when I was communicating with him from overseas. Words along can not express our gratitude and appreciation for all the Joe was able to do for us to close in minimal time. Joe is fantastic to work with and we will definitely work with him again. Ten stars would be more appropriate for Joe. He provides the best customer service, knows his stuff and we would highly recommend him to anyone!
