Outside of his solid integrity, one of Paul's most important attributes is adhering to his operating philosophy; always deliver beyond the expectations he sets, and exceed results well before the deadline.

Outside of Paul's passion for serving the needs of his clients and real estate partners, you will find him either at home enjoying his loving family and three dogs, caring for his young son (born in 2016), or immersed in the outdoors with one of his many recreational activities. Paul's family moved to the Seattle area with Boeing in 1938 and are extremely proud of their Pacific Northwest roots.

I work closely with my team of specialists to get you the financing you need. See what each member brings to the team.

Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.

Conventional

Conventional

A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.
FHA

FHA

If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.

Paul and his team helped my partner and I through a complicated home refinancing and cash-out. We hit some unexpected bumps in the process that required some creative thinking, but in the end we accomplished our goal. Refinancing at this time was out of necessity and not something I would unilaterally decide to do given the current state of interest rates, but I was happy to have Paul's expertise and personal guidance throughout the process.

John Welch did an excellent job helping my clients purchase their new home. He was very communicative with everyone throughout the process so we never had to wonder how the loan was doing. Highly recommended!

Paul consistently went the extra mile throughout every stage of the transaction. He made the time to stop by for a portion of the inspection, and played a roll in successfully maneuvering through a challenging inspection and appraisal process. I appreciated his commitment to ensuring a positive experience for my buyer!
