About Michael Gikas

As a 13 year veteran of the lending industry, I built a strong referral business working with first-time homebuyers. Through the years, many of my clients have come back as move-up buyers, to purchase vacation homes or investment properties. My hands-on approach and attention to detail have been rewarded with multiple President’s Club awards and Seattle Magazine’s 5 Star Professional award.

I understand it is not always practical to converse during regular business hours, therefore I am also available to talk outside of regular business hours. We can speak at your convenience about the progress of your loan. I simplify the loan process by handling all aspects of your loan. I strive to make the experience straightforward and pleasant.

Janet P. Jan-22
“This is our second home refinance with Michael and he is amazing! I can't say enough good things. I have already refered my friends to him and will continue to do so.”
Colleen M. Jul-21
“I chose Homebridge because I wanted to work with Michael Gikas. Michael worked with my sister when she bought her first home. As I looked into buying my first property, I interviewed three brokers and Michael spent the most time with me to explain complex processes in easy-to-understand ways. Michael was invariably professional and highly responsive throughout my home search. He answered my numerous questions throughout the process and was easy to reach via phone or email. I obtained my first choice property in a competitive market and closed early. I highly recommend him with no hesitation.”
Trent K. Jul-21
“Michael was such a fantastic person to work with throughout the entire home search and purchase process. As a first-time home-buyer, Michael talked me through the entire process upfront, explaining everything very clearly. And then as a home-buyer in a crazy market, he was incredibly helpful and patient over the course of eight offers. I would absolutely love to work with Michael again in the future, and will recommend him to anyone that is looking to purchase a home! Thanks again, Michael!”

“Michael was very patient and helpful in guiding us through our first home financing process. He was also extremely diligent and helped us with our 3-week closing period. It never felt rushed, just very orderly and efficient. We couldn't have asked for a better lending process.”
Teresa S. Nov-20
“Michael was fantastic to work with. He was responsive, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about every step in the process. He gave us information that helped us to feel informed, and was always ready to answer our (many!) questions. We couldn't be more pleased with the way he helped us to navigate and smooth our home loan process.”
Dewey H. Jul-20
“I have worked with several times in the past with Michael Gikas. He is the reason I chose Homebridge Financial.”
Matt Xuan - Software Engineer
“We bought and financed our home remotely in another state as we are looking to relocate. Michael was really easy to work with though both emails and phones. He gave us exactly the list of documents we need to gather and provided us the pre-qualified letter very fast so that we can make the offer in time. After our offer is accepted, Michael continued to work with us very efficiently to gather the remaining required documents, without us needing to do any back and forth. The loan was closed on time without any delay or issue. Very smooth and pleasant mortgage experience, and we especially appreciate it since it's our first house so having the mortgage professionally taken care of made the whole stressful process a lot calmer for us. ”
Douglas Tarnow
“Michael Gikas has demonstrated his expertise as a loan officer and confidant many times over. I could not think of anyone else I would recommend to handle one's residential financing needs. He is swift, deliberate and does not miss a thing. Michael was again able to bring my loan to close in the shortest period of time in a very professional manner. I must admit, my primary bank wanted me to give them a try in refinancing my residence. There was no comparison between the quality of care I received through Michael and Homebridge vs the competition. Michael has rewritten the book on what customer service is supposed to be. Thanks a million! Douglas ”
Julia Swan
“My husband and I have worked with Michael twice to obtain a home loan and both times we have enjoyed our experience working with him. Michael's work was always accurate and swift, which is important during the loan application process. He delivered a fast closing for us, and always walked us through the steps we needed to take to do our part. When we needed advice about how to set up some alternative financing to make a down payment, Michael provided useful information and was patient in answering out questions. We felt like we had a good team behind us during the home buying process and Michael was a big part of that!”
Troy Prince
“Michael has helped us with a home mortgage twice now, and has been superb to work with! He was great with helping us navigate the process, and had very practical advice about our options. We'd definitely recommend him to any of our friends interested in a home loan. ”
Jeremy Gordon
“Michael was a pleasure to work with throughout our home financing process. He was organized, thorough and attentive to all the details that we needed to pull together for our closing. In addition to being quick to respond to our questions he kept us on track to meet our deadline and never asked for the same document twice. We've had mediocre experiences in the past with other loan officers so we felt especially fortunate to get to work with Michael. Based on the quality of service we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael or Homebridge for home loans. Thank you again. ”
