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.

What Our Customers Say About Me

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. ”
