About Kimberly Kawachi

Aloha! I was born and raised in Maui and always had a desire to help others. I love that on a daily basis I am involved with helping people purchase their next home or improve their financial position with a refinance – it's pretty special to be a part of that. After 15 years in the mortgage industry I can honestly say that I'm still just as excited about mortgage lending today as I was on my first day! For me, my home is where my husband and I raise our two beautiful, quickly-growing boys and where I entertain friends and family. My home is such a huge part of family!

Why I think Homebridge is THE place to be: I'm surrounded everyday by people who love what they do. Each and every one of them is committed to making the loan process fast, efficient, and accurate. I'm amazed daily by my team. Their execution is top notch, the products and programs offered are competitive, and in many cases setting industry standards for excellence. Based in Seattle, Homebridge is one of the largest community banks headquartered in Washington. Homebridge began in 1921 as Continental Mortgage and Loan Company, initially offering financing for commercial real estate and home mortgages. Homebridge evolved into a full service bank in 1986, further expanding its products and services in 2000 to include business banking and lending. I can't wait for you to experience the Homebridge difference!

Jennifer Knowles - Staff Accountant
“My husband and I started looking to buy a condo almost two years ago. At that time, we connected with Kimberly through her wonderful assistant Lei Agpoon. We actually went through about 2 other condos before we found the one we would by, and during that whole process she was so helpful and informative. Kim was very attentive to our needs and concerns and I felt she understood what we were looking for in a loan and she helped us find the right loan that matches our budget. The thing I most appreciated, was her ability to explain everything in detail regarding loans. She was so patient with all of our questions and made sure we understood all of our options. When we buy again and refinance, we will definitely be going to Kimberly Kawachi! Mahalo!”

“Kim was just wonderful to work with. I found my dream home on a Sunday morning, Super Bowl Sunday to be specific. My realtor highly recommended her and he contacted her that day. We spoke on the phone and she immediately put my mind at ease. Though she had plans for Super Bowl, she took time out of her Sunday to start the process. I am so grateful for her dedication. Fast forward to the present, I am in my dream home. Every step of the way she helped make the process easy for me. Her professionalism, attention to detail, respect for privacy and caring manner made this business transaction a very personal and happy one for me. ”

We have bought a number of properties over the years, and working with Kim and her team at Homebridge Bank made the experience quite easy. Of course there were several minor hiccups, but for the most part the loan process went quite smoothly. Kim was always very responsive whenever we had questions, and we were able to close on time. If we decide to purchase another property in Hawaii, Kim is our choice to do the loan.”

Kim went above and beyond during our buying process and even came in on her day off to accommodate my families busy schedule!! We look forward to working with Kim again and couldn't be happier with the house she helped us close!! Thanks again! The Kaina Ohana”

“It was great pleasure working with Kimberly. She worked with us in getting qualified and got our qualification letter to our realtor in a timely manner. When we needed to qualify for a larger amount, she gave us options on what to do. She made all feel very easy. Once we were in escrow she gave us a time line of all the things that were going to happen and when. Kimberly kept us up to date on all that was happening and needed to happen. Again it all seemed to flow so smoothly. She was always available for questions either by phone, text or email. This was very reassuring. I can't say enough nice things about her. We highly recommend her and her staff.”

Samantha Frida - Sr. Business Development Director
“Kimberly was excellent to work with, confident in her knowledge of lending for Hawaiian property purchases. There are nuances when purchasing property on the island and its important to work with a local lender who understands how it all works. In addition to that, Kimberly is also personable, has your back throughout the entire process to get you where you need to be. I did compare rates and numbers and she was by far the best and wasn't pushy about it too - I liked that. She also has a great team to work with, response, organized and hardworking to make things happen on time. Highly recommend working with Kimberly if you consider ever purchasing a property on the Hawaiian islands. ”

Tài & Ivanka
“We have bought many houses in our life and we felt the need to write and let you know what a fantastic buying experience we had using Homebridge Bank and Kimberly Kawachi as a loan officer. From the very start, we knew Kimberly was different than others. She was clear, organized and full of answers to all of our questions. We knew exactly what information was needed from the very beginning of the process and if we had any questions. Kimberly was so easy to contact and her response time was incredible. Our entire process was really kept on track by Kimberly with her weekly status updates. We can't say enough great things about Kimberly and if you need a mortgage, there is no one better. The service we have received is beyond our expectation. Every step of the way has been simplified and so smooth. Mahalo and Aloha Highly, highly, highly recommend !!!!!!! ”
Julie and Nathan Patry - Social worker/Teacher

“I strongly recommend Kimberly Kawachi to all mortgage customers. She is very knowledgeable, professional and effective at all times during the loan processing. She responds to all inquiries immediately and even outside her office hours. Her skills and attention to details allow the loan process to close in a relatively short period of time. Kim assisted me and family at different occasions and we have been impressed with her professionalism all the time. Thank you Kim!”
Matt Macario - Professional Consultant
“Kim recently handled our home mortgage loan. I have purchased several homes in my lifetime, and Kim is – without question – the most professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and caring lender representative with whom I have ever dealt. We went through several other lenders with mediocre to poor experiences before we were, thankfully, referred to Kim by our real estate agent. She was able to do what no one else did – find a loan program that met our needs. At every step of the process, Kim handled herself with the utmost professionalism and provided us with clear information so that we were not left wondering as to next steps. Kim’s work culminated in getting up extremely early in the morning on the day prior to closing to ensure that our loan funded on time. Throughout this process, Kim has truly gone above and beyond. I would also like to extend our thanks to Kim’s assistant, Lei Agpoon, who was also extremely helpful and easy to work with. They make an excellent team. We will be using Kim on the refinance we are planning in the next couple of years, and will also be recommending Kim to anyone we know who is shopping for a loan in the future.”
Nancy Coury
“I would highly recommend Kimberly Kawachi. She was there for me through every transaction. I was dealing with a foreclosed property, and I actually had to work with Kimberly for over a year to purchase my home. She is extremely kind, patient, positive and professional. She was readily available at all times. If I couldn't get a hold of her immediately she always called me back in a very timely manner. We even had conversations late into the night when I had to lock in my interest rate. I can not say enough positive things about Kimberly. I can't imagine working with anyone else through this long procedure. ”
Christine Asuncion - owner
“Kim was super awesome! Very informative, patient, knowledgable and helpful with the whole process of getting a refi for our home. I highly recommend her and her skills. Trust is a big factor when it comes to financing anything, let alone your home so I would give her more than "likes" I would give her referrals. Big mahalos to Kim and her team.”
Daniel Scranton - Home Buyer
“Kimberly Kawachi was a joy to work with when buying our first ever home. She walked us through each step of the journey with care, knowledge, and patience. I highly recommend Homebridge Bank and Kimberly Kawachi. In fact, I look forward to working with her again when we buy our next home!”
Lorraine McCarthy
“Kimberly was wonderful to work with. She was so responsive when we had questions and help us navigate a very complicated loan. She also has a wonderful personal touch and made us feel very comfortable in asking questions. Kimberly was also very detailed in all of the paperwork and made sure we didn't miss any deadlines. I would highly recommend her for anyone going through the daunting task of buying or refinancing a property! ”
Jim Forkner - Revenue Manager
“Kim was absolutely incredible. She is highly recommended by us and we are so pleased by our outcome, we cannot stop talking about her to our friends and family. She's completely professional, yet still compassionate and understanding. She always was willing to take her time to explain things thoroughly to us, all the while relating to our questions. She's phenomenal and we are proud to say we are now homeowners, largely thanks to Kim and her team. Mahalo! ”
Jefferson Castillo - Owner Services On-Site Specialist
“Kimberly was always so nice and professional during the whole process. She also made it very simple, she stated from the beginning our goal, which was to close at a specific timeframe, which I thought couldn't be possible. However she of course came through for me and my family and we're able to deliver on everything she planned to do. Because this was my first time ever trying to purchase a home I had a lot of questions. She answered all questions I had with such an amazing attitude and even when I had questions late in the day or on the weekends no matter what time of day no matter where she was or even with her family and dealing with her other responsibilities as a wife and a mother she still responded even if just to say she will get back to me after she gets her kids from school, or after she's made breakfast for her family. I recommend Kim to anyone, which I have already recommended her to some friends, she makes the whole stressful process very enjoyable. So a special thanks to Kim for all of her hard work. My family is so blessed to have worked with her in purchasing our first home. ”
Aaron Kierzek - Captain
“Kim was absolutely a pleasure to work with during the entire process of securing our mortgage loan. She was very professional through many difficult hurdles and also very patient in explaining things to us. She is an honest, genuine, kind person and is very good at her job. I am grateful to have had her on our team and wouldn't consider any one else next time. ”
Bovenberg
“Having run a successful Business for 35 years makes it easy to recognize when you are doing business with people that really care about there customers and how they are treated. We just want to say how much of a pleasure it was to have you be part of the team that helped us with our loan . We really appreciate the extra effort that you put into your job. In today's lending environment finding some one that understands all the ins and outs regarding today's ever changing lending guide lines and could help us through this process was very special indeed. You helped make the experience a good one instead of a painful stressful ordeal. We always felt that you were there for us. We would be more than willing to recommend you and your staff to any potential customers that you do future business with. Best of luck with your full time career in the lending field as well as your full time job as a domestic engineer, Much Mahlo. ”
Ty Seitz - Owner of Island Feet
“Kim and her staff are amazing. We went to Kim with a very tight timeline to get a loan approval on a home. Our Loan was not the easiest to complete due to a tax amendment that we had to file prior to her receiving our application. We had been through 2 other loan institutions that either were taking too long or were not able to get us a reasonable rate on the home loan. Kim and her staff were able to find us an amazing loan and were able to close our escrow in 30 days. Kim was on top of our account every step of the way. Any time she had any information she would relay it to us within minutes of receiving. We didn't feel as though we had to check in on the status of the loan because we were so well informed every single step of the way. If we had a question she had an answer, or would find a solution. Homebridge bank has an amazing staff and they do everything quick and efficiently. If you are even considering getting a loan, see Kim first. We cannot put into words how grateful we were that Kim was on our side to get the loan done”
Todd Shannon - Happy Homeowner
“Kimberly has earned my highest professional regards and recommendation. She was responsive, astute, understanding, and caring through the entire process. All around great job!”
Chelsea Hindley - Member: Da Warehouse
“Kim was responsive, professional and knowledgeable 100%. We appreciated that she always took the time to explain things to us and always ready to help. Would recommend her to any one and will use her our next time around for sure. ”
Mary E. Kierzek
“My son and I recently secured a loan from Ms. Kawachi through Homebridge Bank. From the moment we entered the loan process and tackled the application, I felt confident that Ms. Kawachi would be "present" for me throughout the long process. She exceeded my expectations, coaching me through every snag and returning my emails usually within the day. My son had the same confident attitude regarding her role in securing the loan. I would honestly say that it was a pleasant experience from beginning to end due to Ms. Karachi's attention to every potentially stressful detail. I would highly recommend her for her warm manner as well as her expertise in her field! ”
Kym Forkner
“Kim was amazing to work with. She was with us every step of the way through our first home purchase. We will definitely use Kim again in the future and have already recommended her to our friends. Mahalo Kim for all that you did for us. We couldn't have made this dream of ours a reality without all of your help. ”
Franz
“The entire process was simple, smooth and without a single hitch. Kim was efficient, accurate and communicative throughout the process. She made everything easy to understand and easy to execute.”
Dunn
“We previously worked with a different loan officer with our first mortgage. When we wanted to refinance we went back to her, but it was very difficult to get a hold of her. I had to send several emails before I heard back and I didn't feel good about the situation and almost cancelled. I then received a call that Kim was now going to be taking care of us. Kim was very attentive. She was always available to answer questions and always got back to me in a timely manner, as to be expected. It was a true pleasure to work with Kim. I will absolutely be referring her and I will only contact her for any mortgage needs I have in the future. I was relieved when Kim took over our file. Kim was a pleasure to work with.”
Cunningham
“Kim did an outstanding job from beginning to end! I have already referred another client to Kim given her amazing customer service experience! I will call her first if I decide to refi my homes in future or finance a new car of lease!! The closing went very smoothly! Kim Kawachi is a rock star - who ever hired her should be promoted and - she should be valued in the firm with frequent raises! Outstanding off the charts professional! She instantly communicated with me at every stage of the process. I have worked with Kim Kawachi in Kahului for years. She did such an amazing job with my previous refi and provided over the top customer service that I followed her to Homebridge. I had never heard of your firm before! You were smart to hire Kim, she is AWESOME! ”
Martin
“The loan officer did explain the normal length of time for the processing of paperwork. The processes can be very complicated but the loan officer assured me that I could contact her at any time if I had questions. Email and texting made all very easy to communicate. Appreciated the professionalism of the Loan Officer, Kim Kawachi. ”
Koga
“Very easy for a refinance. Glad to be working with Kim Kawachi. Kim is seriously amazing at what she does. She is great at multitasking and so helpful with all of my millions of questions. My husband works a lot and she did an awesome job of working with our schedules and giving me enough time to sign and return documents. She is the reason we found ourselves with Home Street and we couldn't be more happy. Kim Kawachi had been our mortgage help for years.”
Kaiwi
“Because our credit history was in the works at the time of applying for the home loan, our file was a little rough to work with. A lot of documentation was required, but Kim always tried to request them from me in a timely fashion. Our loan closing was pushed back a few days because of our credit report having verbiage on there, but Kim still kept trying to push for our loan to close on our desired date. We are in our home now, and appreciate all the hard work Kim put in for us. Closing was done at Old Republic Title, which was very convenient for us. Also, Kim was there to explain all the documents we were signing, which was very much appreciated. Being first time homebuyers, my husband and I came in to this full-swing not knowing anything about real estate. Before we met Kim, we had put in a few offers on homes that we absolutely fell in love with, and being outbid each time was very heartbreaking for us. That is when we were referred by one of our friends, to Kim Kawachi. We hit it off with her the moment we talked and thankfully she referred us to our amazing realtor. When we finally found another house that we were interested in, it was a for sale by owner. Kim made the loan process as easy and stress free as she possibly could. Our file was not the easiest to work with, but she made it happen and she ALWAYS had our best interest at heart. We will forever be grateful to Kim. She is one of the main reasons why we are in our very own home today. Thank you Kim :) ”
Thorson
“Kimberly was very knowledgeable & professional. The process was completed very quickly and smooth. Kimberly was very helpful, and kept us up to date through the whole process. ”
Fabian
“Kim was wonderful and incredibly organized and fast. She is amazing at what she does.”
Chu
“You have the best loan officer on the island working for you. I have already referred 2 people to her and 1 has recently closed and another has just begun the paperwork . We just closed as well. Kim makes the impossible ....possible. Kim is the best. She makes the whole experience a bunch easier and less stressful.”
Barber
“I was pretty impressed as the refi was closed in less than 2 months, I received a paper copy of the appraisal by mail and got CLA and final by mail. I also liked the fact that I only dealt with Kim who knew very well all transaction steps. I am so far pretty impressed by the service, the care and the overall experience. I was overall pretty impressed by Homebridge Bank as it was my first time dealing with this bank and I am a realtor. More attention to details and customers are not a number, at least that is what I felt. Other lenders are machines... Kim is awesome, she gets it done. She provides terrific customer service at any time on any day. She can anticipate challenges and knows how to make it happen.”
