About Mary Black

Whether you are purchasing a home or refinancing, my experience of over 20 years in the mortgage lending and real estate fields will ensure that your loan is approved quickly and smoothly.

I am a Seattle/Bellevue native, a graduate of the University of Washington business school, and currently, live in Bellevue with my husband and daughter. I love to travel, ski, and attempt to golf.

Whether you are a first-time home buyer, or are looking to refinance an existing home, or want to purchase an investment property or a vacation getaway – together we can decide which loan program best fits your needs. I am experienced in a wide variety of loan programs and enjoy working with new construction purchases and borrowers who work with local tech firms. I am also experienced with self-employed borrowers and those with complicated tax returns. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or if you are ready to be pre-approved.

“This has been the most painless mortgage process I have ever gone through! Thanks for your good service. I will recommend you to anyone looking for refinancing.”
Mary Ann

“I wanted to take a moment to let you know that my wife and I had an outstanding customer service experience provided by Mary Black. I am hard pressed to imagine how our experience with Homebridge could have been any better. The best thing I can say is that I recommended Mary to my own mother for the purchase of her home as well. Mary Black is an outstanding Loan Officer.”
Dr. Eliot

“Thanks very much for your help on my mortgage needs. I appreciate your meticulous service and will definitely recommend you to all people I know.”

What Our Customers Say About Me

Edwin G. Aug-21
“On a scale of 1-10 Mary's services in getting our loan was a 100. Very helpful and went well beyond anything I expected from a loan officer. This is why we came to homebridge is because of her.”
Eric T. May-21
“Mary did a great job for me with the entire process!”
Carol N. Apr-21
“My first loan experience with Mary 7 years ago was very satisfactory. The reason I reached out to her, again, is because I have confidence in her; I knew that she was an individual whose expertise and personal interest were positive. There is no one else with whom I would want to go through loan process.”
“I had been working with someone from a different mortgage company, but I was not happy with the process and they ended up not being able to offer even a 60-day lock guarantee because of being too busy. But working with Mary Black and the Homebridge portal was a MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE! Mary was available, much more clearly explained the process, was attentive to my questions. Also I was not passed off or contacted by assistants which had been confusing. Also the Homebridge portal was MUCH more user-friendly! I have already recommended Mary and Homebridge to a few friends and neighbors. ”

GLENN O. Nov-19
“We loved working with Mary when we first purchased our home in 2014. Refinancing in 2019 was just as easy and smooth. She helped every step of the way!!”
Junell Haviland
“My husband and I had a great experience working with Mary. We went to her for our mortgage and Mary was always very responsive and helpful. We worked with a wonderful realtor too that Mary recommended. When it came time to put an offer on a house and the whole closing process, Mary got the job done super fast. ”
E. Nichols
“I highly recommend Mary to service your mortgage requirements. She was highly knowledgeable, thorough and efficient in all aspects of our refinance process. She responded to questions and follow up in a timely fashion. Great to work with and clearly a winner!”
Laura Dean - Laura Music Studio Owner
“I recently completed a refinance with Mary Black on my little yellow house in Wedgwood. Mary helped out with every step along the way, including chasing down a couple of pesky documents to complete the title paperwork. She quickly responded to emails and calls and all of my questions. The entire process was smooth and painless. How refreshing to work with a caring person in my neighborhood , face to face, rather than someone over the phone. Three cheers for Mary! ”
cynthia L thies
“I am retired and was worried financing my new house would be difficult. Mary made the entire process quick and painless. She really knows her business and working with her was wonderful. I highly recommend Mary.”
Chris Hamilton
“Mary was amazing from start to finish! She patiently answered all of our questions (and we had a lot!) and she kept us up-to-date at every step of the process. She was also a joy to work with - very professional AND personable, which is not always an easy balance. I’m sure she was working with several clients at the same time she was working with us, but it felt as if we were her sole focus. Whether this is your first home purchase or your last, I have no doubt that you would rave about your experience with Mary. She’s THE BEST!”
Tricia Turner
“Mary helped us close our original loan on our home in Vashon in 2013. She is so efficient, flexible and a great communicator. We had no doubt that we would ask her to manage our refinance at the end of 2017. Once again she handled our business with such professionalism and efficiency. I would recommend her with confidence. And I will most definitely request her help in the future should the occasion arise.”
Rebecca Sorensen - Event Director
“Mary was so easy to work with and made sure that in a really tough market our house closed as quickly as possible without any issue. We were nervous trying to make it in a cash heavy market with financing and Homebridge's name and her guarantee of a quick closure definitely helped. Everything was in order and we were even able to sign early and go on the vacation we had planned months before we even thought of purchasing a home.. ”
Karen Brown - Software Consultant
“Mary Black has been my mortgage broker for over 10 years and has helped me with financing of 2 loans. Mary is highly knowledgeable and customer service oriented. I plan on having Mary in my life for as long as she will have me :-) Thank you Mary!”
Debra Wood
“Mary was fabulous. If it wasn't for her I would not have my new home. She guided me through the process while helping me with my credit. She even showed up at the closing in downtown Seattle. I can't thank her enough. ”
Andrea Heatherly and Daniel Norton - Andrea - Portfolio Manager
“We have worked with Mary on several transactions (re-financing, condo sale and home purchase). She made each of these as easy for us as she could. She answered all of our questions, responded promptly to calls and emails, and her instructions were always crystal clear. She has deep subject matter expertise and a passion for her work. We love working with her!”
Margaret Hoelzer - Aquatics Director @ The Mercer Island Country Club & Public Speaker
“Mary was awesome, as someone that is self-employed and has a full time employed job, she was able to handle all the complexities of my financial situation and find a mortgage that was right for me. In this market, buying a house isn't easy and Mary made the process seamless and smooth. If I am ever buying a house in the Seattle area again I will absolutely come back to her!”
