Saul was an absolutely champ with my loan application, which was a multi-headed hydra that had just about everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. In addition to being a non-resident on a visa, I had multiple accounts, gifts and other complicating factors that made the application a bit of an ordeal. Despite an avalanche of emails, receipts and bank statements, Saul never lost his sense of humour or enthusiasm. He really was exceptionally good at navigating what I consider to be a very onerous process for obtaining financing. Highly recommended. He's a nice guy too.

I recently worked with Saul on a mortgage for a new home (and a few years ago on a refinanced mortgage), and once again Saul hit it out of the park. Five stars in every category is not inflating his rating. Saul is very knowledgeable, professional, easily available and immediately responsive. He even made a clutch phone call to the seller's agent while he was out of town for a weekend; I'm sure this made a difference in being able to win the offer on our home. Closing went smooth and fast; Saul worked in lock step with our real estate agent (who was also impressed). Saul is also a genuine pleasure to work with, in person or over the phone. We are very grateful for his work and give our highest recommendation.

Right off the bat, I was impressed by Saul's professionalism and knowledge. He is very receptive to any questions or concerns you may have during the home loan process. It is never difficult to get a hold of Saul, either by email or phone. I also like the fact that Saul prefers face to face or phone contact which gives his service a personal touch. He was even able to make the drive from Kirkland to Renton to be with me at my signing appointment with the title company. I would recommend Saul to anyone looking for a reference.

Saul was very responsive to all our questions about the process and what certain terms meant. He responded almost immediately all the time to our emails. In addition he was very encouraging through the whole process as he checked in with us. Finally, when we found a place he moved really quickly and efficiently to help us close as soon as possible -- I'd highly recommend Saul, he has great customer service.

Saul was extremely organized, giving us a checklist of items to provide for our first meeting. He anticipated what the loan underwriters would need and also gave us a good sense of how the process would flow. He responded quickly to emails and kept us informed about progress. He made the loan side of buying a house way easier than it has ever been before for me. Saul is wonderful to work with!

Closed purchase loan.
Saul was amazing! I shopped around through my credit union, some friend referrals and online and Saul was able to get me the lowest interest rate and provided me with different financing options. He always got back to me quickly and answered all my questions. The selling agent even emailed us to let us know that he was one of only 5 lenders that had docs to escrow early in her 35 years in the real estate industry! He made sure to follow up with the sellers and us through out the process so we knew just where everything was at along the whole way and that kept the deal alive and well.

Everything is signed and waiting for recording now. Thanks again Saul!

We were first time home buyers and had very little knowledge about the whole process. Saul was very patient from day one. He was very helpful and was always ready to help and answer any questions we had. He never tried to pressurize us or try to sell himself too hard. He was professional, and very courteous. He was always proactive, with his assistance we were able to close a loan in less than month. I cannot thank Saul enough to make our first home buying experience smooth and very easy for us.

I would highly recommend Saul. I would really suggest talking to him at least once, and you will know he is the right guy.

I spent considerable time shopping for a home mortgage.Saul was very professional in explaining the options and pros and cons of points vs. rate and how rates vary. I've been through the process before but I like to get nuances and professional input. I found a competing rate that was very competitive. I had a very large down deposit and strong financials. Saul was still able to work with me and make a concession to meet the competition. On several occasions he called to make sure all questions were answered and we made excellent progress throughout the approval and closing process. Overall I was extremely impressed and satisfied. Even 3 months after the process I am still very satisfied.

You will be informed and satisfied if you work with Saul Bailey

My wife and I worked with Saul recently on the purchase of a new house in Seattle. Saul was very helpful throughout the entire process, from obtaining pre-approval to closing on the house. He was honest and helped set the expectations up front on what to expect. Saul was very responsive in answering all questions and responding to emails. In general, he helped to make the stressful process of buying a new home a little less stressful.

We were very happy with the service we received from Saul and HomeStreet Bank, and would highly recommend him to others - as well as work with him again for future home loans or re-mortgages.

Closed purchase loan.
Saul was awesome. I had a very unique situation due to being single on disability due to cancer. He got me approved quickly and matched what I was offered thru a membership program in terms of fees and rates. When the place I fell in love with was more than I had been approved for, he was great at getting the underwriters to see that my savings would make up the difference. He is super nice and I felt trustworthy. I never had to follow-up...he was ahead of the game in keeping me in the loop. This is my third real estate loan transaction in 3 years and by far the easiest thanks to Saul.
