Joni Moriarty - Real Estate Broker
“Eric was professional, prompt and easy to work with. I look forward to working with him on another transaction in the future.”
Kristie Dutra
“The loan process for our first home was unusually complex, and Eric tirelessly worked through every obstacle and roadblock that came our way. We were impressed enough that we came back to Eric when it was time to refinance, and we continue to recommend him to everyone we know. Without his creative problem-solving capabilities, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills, we wouldn't have been able to buy our first home!”
Kerry Minietta
“I would highly recommend Eric for any mortgage needs. He has helped my family with mortgages for three different homes and the process is always smooth and efficient. The most recent mortgage included two different city plots, one of which is raw land. Eric navigated the issues needed to have everything included with ease. He has been and continues to be our "go to" professional for home loans and I have spread the word among friends and colleagues that they can trust and rely on Eric for any of their needs.”
Christa Banks - -
“We were really pleased with Eric's attentiveness and efficiency with processing our home loan. Purchasing a home for the first time was stressful, but we felt at ease with Eric throughout the whole process.

He made me aware of programs that would save me money! He has great communication and keeps you in the loop the entire process! I will only deal with him for anything mortgage if possible. I HIGHLY recommend choosing Eric! I normally wouldn't write reviews for anyone even negative ones but Eric deserves recognition! He will go far with his company for sure.”

“Eric did an amazing job. Very efficient and knowledgeable. Made me feel real confident and comfortable in what I was doing. Cannot recommend him enough.”

“Eric is one of the nicest people I've met, in addition to being highly professional, communicative and responsive Real Estate Professional. Eric is a extremely hard worker, (sometimes late in to the evening... I know, I've called him) persistent, yet very laid back. He did some simply amazing work on closing my home... within a month! I can't say anything bad about Eric but I can say tons of good things!He is a wonderful Real Estate Professional!!”
Brent J from Snohomish, WA - He was able too get more done in two weeks then our last banker did in two months.
“Eric was gas fanatic to work with. I have had mortgages through other banks, and the process was slow and painful. He was able too get more done in two weeks then our last banker did in two months. I would highly recommend working with him and I will also do all for any other mortgages.”
Jessica A from Olympia, WA - To our surprise the loan we had on the home was eligible for a refi.
“We used Eric as our lender for our home we will be closing on this Friday :) He was extremely knowledgeable and was very helpful throughout the process. Although we are already home owners we are much closer to "first timers" in the understanding of mortgages. On our 1st house we were just so excited to sign we never really asked what we were signed. This time around we were bound and determined to understand the process and the loan docs (line by line). Eric was extremely responsive and took the time to explain in detail answers to all the questions we had. We had also been told by many lenders we were either not ready for a refi or couldn't do a refi on the home we currently have as a rental. Eric took the time to listen to exactly what type of mortgage we had and what our goals were. To our surprise the loan we had on the home was eligible for a refi. No other lender we spoke with asked what type of loan we had on the home. So now not only will we be using Eric for the current home he is also saving around $200 for our rental as well!! Needless to say we are very happy with the service Eric provided and happily recommend him for your mortgage needs as well!”
Dennis R
“Eric was great to work with, always responsive to my texts or calls, always had a ready answer to my questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Eric as a loan officer to other potential customers.”
William L
“Eric was great to work with. He didn't apply any pressure and kept me well informed throughout the whole process. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to contact him in the future for any additional needs I may have.”
Jalohn T from Seattle, WA - At the end of the day, best of all, he got me a loan tailored to my preferences...
“Eric was an absolutely fantastic person to work with. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and professional. Trustworthy! My home buying process took a looong time, but he was very patient and was able to clearly and quickly help out with any questions I had throughout the process. At the end of the day, best of all, he got me a loan tailored to my preferences with the lowest rates possible. Couldn't recommend him enough.”
J Harris from Auburn, WA - Eric was always very helpful and happily guided us through our first mortgage process.
“From the moment we first contacted Eric he was very excited to help us as much as he could. He calculated several different ways for us to get the best deal and to find the best loan for our situation. Eric was always very helpful and happily guided us through our first mortgage process. We would happily recommend Eric to anyone buying a home!”
Peter S from Seattle, WA - He was also flexible with the meeting spots which was good for us because it meant...
“First time home buyer, so I don't have much to compare with but I can say that Eric Aasness was very responsive. We reached out to multiple bankers on a weekend and got a quick response back from Eric. The rates he offered were competitive to the others we reached out to and he was very knowledgeable about the mortgage process and was able to succinctly explain the whole process to us. He was also flexible with the meeting spots which was good for us because it meant we had more time to do house shopping.During closing, he made a good impression with the previous home owners. The confidence boost around our loan could've been a contributing factor to our offer going through (because we did have multiple offers higher than ours). The closing dates were fairly tight, he was able to make the 3 week closing date no problem and kept us in the loop the entire time.Overall a very enjoyable experience. Would work with him again if we have a chance in the future.”
Emily E from Seattle, WA - He had moved companies!
“Eric taught a first time home buyers class that I took and I knew then that he would be a great person to work with. Despite that feeling, I still shopped around for lenders. I decided that he was the person I wanted to work with so I went back to find him. He had moved companies! So I found him at his new company--I thought he was that good. Buying a home for a first time is really stressful and has a seriously steep learning curve. Eric explained things to me in a way that i could understand, and never gave me more than I could handle. He helped me buy the home of my dreams. I look forward to continuing to work with him as my loan progresses. Thank you!”
Vivian L from Seattle, WA - He was responsive with our inquiries and documents, and was able to close in less...
“Eric was very knowledgeable and a great help to us especially because we were first time home buyers. He was responsive with our inquiries and documents, and was able to close in less than one month. He even put in a word for us to the home seller to increase our chances of getting offer acceptance. Overall, he was very nice and it was our pleasure to work with him.”
Habib M from Auburn, WA - Hard working guy
“I have work with Eric for like almost 2 months and I was not approved for what I was looking for and we have had a lot of our issue that was personally belong to me but Eric help me go through all that and finally he approve me for the loan and he approve me for the first time buyers as well without having cosigner and I was not even making that much hourly but I really like the house and he was the one”
Tobi A from Seattle, WA - Impecable Customer Service
“It was a great pleasure working with Eric on our loan. He is highly knowledgeable about the various loan options out there. He even told us about a grant we qualified for, which helped tremendously with closing costs. We had spoken to a couple of lenders before meeting Eric, and none of them told us about this grant. Eric made the loan process east and painless for us. He was patient and explained everything we needed to know about the loan and all the documents we had to sign. I will definitely recommend working with Eric!”
Ann G from Seattle, WA - Energetic and Knowledgable
“Eric Aasness helped us work through a complicated loan situation that dealt with a family Trust. Our process involved many emails and phone calls and he was always available and very patient. We truly appreciated his guidance with this process and we are happily living in my childhood home as a result.”
Carolyn H from Seattle, WA - Painless Process
“My mortgage experience with Eric Aasness was wonderful. I was buying a house in the middle of a divorce, and his kind and relaxed manner was exactly what I needed. He explained the process thoroughly, answered all of my questions, and handled everything perfectly. There were no problems. I would recommend him without reservation.”
Darlene S from Kent, WA - Exceeds in Accuracy
“Eric knows his job very well and goes above and even beyond to satisfy his clients. He responded fast and took us through every step thoroughly along the way. Eric was personable and professional, we were delighted to meet with him because he answered all our questions and put us at ease during this life changing moment of purchasing our first house. He should be well recognized, for being so zealous about doing what he loves.”
Hanley Bonynge - Senior Associate
“Eric was instrumental in getting us into our first house. He was quick, responsive, and very helpful. Since being in our new house, he has helped us take out a home-equity loan and given us agnostic advice on financial decisions, even if it meant going somewhere else. I completely trust Eric and would never hesitate to work him in the future.”
Gregory Dorrell - Real Estate Agent
“Eric was a please to work with and assisted my clients as a professional. Eric closed on time and with minimum hassle. Greg”
Amber Powell - Homebuyer
“Eric made the homebuying process smooth and easy for us. He was quick to reply to emails, I didn’t try to call him but I would guess he’s quick there too. Eric was very helpful when we had questions, he explained the process easily and clearly for us. Eric also kept us updated as we waited for everything to go through on our home purchase. It was helpful to be kept updated since there can be quite a bit of time you’re not hearing back. Eric was very reassuring throughout the whole thing. I honestly cannot think of anyway Eric could have improved, he was fabulous and we would certainly ask for his assistance again. ”
Brian Saeteurn - NEW HOME OWNER
“Very knowledgeable and helpful. Always at our services. Would recommend to all friends and family. ”
Zach W from Seattle, WA - Excellent With First Time Buyers!
“I was fortunate enough to have Eric guide me through the loan process as a first-time home buyer. Eric met with me while I was still in college and helped lay out a plan for home ownership post-graduation. One year after graduating, I had the savings and credit built up to close on my first home. Throughout the loan process Eric was patient, responsive, and went out of his way to make sure I understood all aspects of financing a home. He has been in the industry for many years and knows the ins and outs of all home loan programs on the market and will match the ideal program with your needs. He has also been my parent's banker for many years and helped guide them through home purchases and home equity line of credit extensions. My family is looking to continue working with Eric on investment property purchases and as an investor himself, he is very knowledgeable in that area as well. In short, whatever your needs may be, Eric will work with you on a plan to make it happen!”
Eric Liljegren - Landlord
“Eric Aasness was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We needed a HELOC in a hurry, and with his expert guidance, Homebridge Bank had us approved and funded without a hitch, after another national bank couldn't get it done. ”
James Reed Powell - Program Manager
“Eric is not only an expert but professional as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Home Street and recommend it to others. Eric helped to educate me through the home buying process, loan procurement, and essentially any other question I had. Furthermore, his response time is phenomenal with tangible answers. I am a results oriented person and Eric checked all the boxes for me. ”
Jared - IT System Administrator
“Working with Eric was an absolute pleasure and the process went so smoothly I almost forgot I was buying a house. I asked a lot of questions and he was always quick to reply. I would recommend Eric to any person looking to buy a home that wants to make the process stress free.”
Angela Williamson - Home Buyer
“Eric Aasness is THE ONLY loan professional that we will use. He helped us nearly 15 years ago on our first home purchase.

“We needed a quick homeowners line of credit (HELOC) that Eric set up for us. He came to our location to fill out the paperwork, set everything up in a short time frame. The initial loan came thru when we needed it. He even coordinated a second draw while we were traveling out of state and needed some extra funds. Eric was easy to work with and always available and responsive to our calls. ”
