About Ozell Jackson

Since I was three years old, I’ve lived in the greater Puget Sound area. This is where my wife and I chose to raise our children and where my parents retired. I am committed to make this area better. It is difficult for any one person to have a meaningful impact. That is why I search out organizations that put community first and partner with them whenever I can.
For several years, I have coached football, basketball and soccer. What a rewarding experience. Our teams have always had a goal to be better today than they were yesterday. This requires everyone on the team (coaches and players alike) to acknowledge their mistakes and shortcomings. Then develop a plan today that will cause improvement tomorrow. It is exciting to see the young people apply these principals in sports as well as in their academic and family life.
For over 30 years, I have been creating and implementing strategies for financing real estate. During this time I managed several different departments, including affordable housing, custom construction, renovation, underwriting and processing.
Homebridge has a commitment to serve the communities I serve. Every day, the Homebridge team takes a hard look at themselves and asks “How can we better serve?”. For me, that means working with families and businesses, helping them improve their financial positions.

Julie Jackson assists me in providing excellent service to my clients. She is Construction and Renovation Certified and a true mortgage specialist. You can reach Julie at (425) 533-2473 or Julie.Jackson@Homebridge.com.

What Our Customers Say About Me

Stefanie M. Aug-20
“This was our second transaction with Ozell and Julie. They are great! We definitely recommend friends to them.”
Joshua M. Aug-20
“Ozell was a very knowledgable and reliable partner in purchasing our first home. He was very communicative and answered all our questions. He was a friendly professional and I always looked forward to chatting with him on the phone. Ozell also got us an amazing interest rate and did good work to help us improve our credit scores by like 30 points - which was a nice unexpected byproduct of the process. He helped us navigate some tricky situations during the process, like when our closing got delayed due to an issue with the seller. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to others looking for a loan officer. We really liked Ozell!”

“The Jackson are wonderful, Ozell and Julie were an absolute joy to work with”
A.K. Ridgely
“Julie and Ozell's dedication to being responsive, available, and then beyond was exceptional. If I had a question about an issue, they didn't just answer it, they providing data for options I didn't know existed. For example, the seller gave a price drop due to an issue. They provided comparison printouts showing how applying that to closing costs vs the purchase price impacted everything from mortgage payments to taxes, etc. I had not even thought of that. And I heard later from my real estate agent about issues they worked out behind the scenes, making my purchase easier on me. I have worked with them for 20 years now and will continue to do so!”
Thomas Edward Sundquist - Retired Military
“great help in getting a loan.”
Brian Bone
“ I had my first contact with Ozell in 2012 after I had been turned down for financing by another bank (after jumping through all of their hoops for 5+ months) . The listing agent recommended him, and told me that in 30 years of experience in real estate, that Ozell was the smartest finance officer he had ever met. I called Ozell and got voice mail, I left a message and the call was promptly returned. I sent over the information he requested and he called me two days later to tell me that he could do the loan, and that it was "just a math problem" and that he could do it a couple of different ways. I was astonished! I told him that he must be kidding - that the people I had been working with had said no.He asked me who I was working with and I told him the name of the institution, and then he asked who at that institution. Then he proceeded to tell me that he used to run that institution's mortgage dept. And that he had trained the individual I was working with and that I should call up and tell this person that Ozell said to send the loan up the line and it would be approved .He told me that this would be much easier for me than restarting the whole process, and that yes, if they turned me down, he would help me. This absolutely amazed me. He was totally confident that the loan would go through, and he recommended the best course for me. He was looking out for my best interests even though he had spent time working on this, thinking he could get a sale. I have to tell you that I was impressed! I was even more impressed after I called the other loan officer, and he said to me "if Ozell says it'll go, then it'll go" Sure enough I got my house.What a blessing! 2017 rolled around and it was time for refinancing - get rid of the PMI and the ARM and consolidate some debt. A friend of mine convinced me to try his money man, who told me that he couldn't do it and neither could anyone else. I hung up the phone and thought to myself "well that was a waste of time - I should have just called Ozell" So I called Ozell and he got it done. Efficiently. Courteously. Professionally. Pleasantly. He exceeded my expectations, which were high! Ozell has earned my trust and respect and I'm very thankful to him and thankful that I discovered him. I recommend him to you!”
