About Summer Pineda

Wife, mother of two, and Mortgage Loan Officer – that’s me!  Born and raised in this beautiful Yakima Valley, I have chosen to make this area my home. The service industry has played a major role throughout my entire life. I started working at the age of 12 in my family’s restaurant and continued in the restaurant industry throughout my college career.  This fast-paced, service-oriented atmosphere was the ideal training for my future career. I wanted to help people in a challenging industry that would also encourage long term success for my clients.

After completing my Associates Degree with North Seattle Community College, I worked briefly for Windermere Real Estate in Seattle where I found myself intrigued in the financing side of real estate. I knew I wanted to pursue my education, and in the winter of 2006, I was fortunate to find a mortgage team to help groom me while continuing my education at Central Washington University. After graduating with my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 2009, I became a full-time Loan Officer and never looked back. During all that time, I experienced the highs and lows of the mortgage industry from companies closing to corporate acquisitions, to finding a home with a fantastic long-standing company. Throughout my career, I have seen the compression and relaxation of mortgage guidelines and have developed an understanding of how best to serve my clients in this ever-changing industry.

My business is 100% supported through the referrals of colleagues, friends, and clients.  The most gratifying feeling is knowing I have set my clients up for long term financial success through homeownership. I have the programs, knowledge, and experience to help serve you.

Whatever your reason for mortgage financing may be, I will help you accomplish your goals. I help first-time home buyers, more experienced buyers, and even investors with purchases or refinances of programs like 0% down VA and USDA to low down payment FHA and Conventional loans.

“Summer helped us with our first home loan over 4 years ago. When we had questions regarding refinancing and pulling cash out, Summer was obviously our first call. Yet again she came through! She walked us through the whole process, answered all of my questions quickly, and was readily available by email or phone. We will absolutely use Summer again when we are ready to buy our next house.”

Robert Davis - Air Traffic Manager
“Summer did an amazing job for us. From the minute I first spoke with her she was an absolute professional and was very nice. She explained the entire VA loan process and answered all of our questions. Her communication with us throughout the entire process was wonderful. She updated us regularly and responded to any and all texts, emails and phone calls quicker than I ever expected. It is clear that she loves her job and prides herself on ensuring people have the best possible home mortgage experience. Well done to Summer and her team for getting us over the finish line on our 3rd VA loan only 5 days after closing on the sale of our previous home (VA loan), and that included a weekend and President's Day. This was a great experience. I strongly recommend Summer and her team at Homebridge in Yakima.”
Melanie Howard - Teacher
“Summer did a fabulous job with our mortgage! She was very patient, clear, helpful, timely, efficient, and always positive.

Five Stars for good service! Thank you, Summer!”

“Summer Pineda is a SUPERSTAR and a wonderful person to work with. I have worked with lots of loan officers in the past and have NEVER had the pleasant experience that my wife and I enjoyed with Summer. For example, I was trying to get an approval letter sent to the seller of our new home - Summer got the letter to the seller within an hour on a Sunday!! This gal needs a promotion and you should consider your organization blessed to have her! We will recommend her services to anyone who will listen! THANKS SUMMER!!!”

We are so glad to have taken this leap in adulthood and had such the greatest guidance and support from Summer. Thank you so much Summer! ”
Steven Dale Bernard - Loan Recepient
“My wife and I have been thoroughly impressed with the service and support we received from Summer Pineda from application to completion of our home mortgage loan.

I am currently recommending her to friends, family and business associates for their home mortgage needs. ”
Sherilyn H Johnson - Buyer
“We met Summer at Homebridge Bank. She helped us as through the process of applying and getting our home loan. She was professional, honest, straightforward, helpful, informative and just plain nice to us. We appreciated how she was available to answer all our questions and give us updates as we went through the process of getting approval. Thank you Summer for being amazing. We have already told many friends and family that we think she is pretty great. Also, her co-workers in that office were very appreciated. One afternoon, I showed up without an appointment to drop off papers for Summer, she was unavailable helping someone else, but her coworker was very nice and helpful. We couldn’t be more satisfied with our experience with Sumner and Homebridge Bank. ”
Michael Yusi - Electrician
“It doesn't get any better than Summer Pineda! If you are looking for someone that will work for you, have great communication with immediate responses, knowledge about the industry and get you the best deal possible then Summer Pineda at Homebridge bank is the person for the job. She helped me to raise my credit score and lock in a better interest rate than I had originally thought I would get! She is very kind, great a listening and was a pleasure to work with. She will walk you through the lending process and layout different options to help you find the best choice for your current situation. I will take all my future business to Summer and gladly recommend her to anyone interested in getting a loan. ”
Tor Smith
“This is the second time that we have had Summer help us get a mortgage. We used her the first time because several people recommended her. We returned the second time because she did such a great job the first time. Both times we have worked with Summer she exceeded our expectations. Summer keeps her clients informed and helps them find the right mortgage options. The best part about working with Summer is her easy going attitude and willingness to teach her clients about the mortgage process. ”
Stephen L Landess - Home buyer
“Summer Thank you for everything. This was my fourth home purchase and I have never had it so good. Your courteous timeliness, knowledgeable professionalism, and helpfulness made this my best experience ever. Others are going to be lucky, as I was, to have you on there team. Sincerely, Stephen”

“Summer did a fantastic job for me when purchasing my home. She was there for me every step of the way. She was always confident and very professional during the whole loan process . I would highly recommend her to anyone and I have done so many times. She made the whole loan process for me very easy and I greatly appreciate her.”
Brad Hoffa - Internal Auditor
“Summer Pineda comes with my highest possible recommendation. She's one of the very few great ones who will put nothing above your best interests and keep in constant communication throughout the process. Summer went above and beyond to help me finance my first home. It was an intense experience, and I doubt there was another loan officer in Washington that was up to the task. Every challenge possible came up during the process, and I was ready to give up, but Summer fought hard and got me my first house, all the while keeping all the stakeholders actively involved (there were many stakeholders!!). Not only is Summer the best, she has stuck with Homebridge for a long time, which is rare in today's ever-evolving banking industry. Well done Summer, I look forward to working with you again!”
Danette Tadlock
“Summer made our loan process a great experience. She kept us informed the whole way thru. ”
Amber Betts - Communications Coordinator
“There was no time during our home-buying process that I felt in the dark, or unsure of what was going on. Summer was always there, very communicative and VERY helpful. The process went very smoothly, and Summer made this process extremely enjoyable. I highly recommend getting in contact with her!”
Jose Espinoza - Office Coordinator
“Wow, where to begin. It's truly an understatement to say Summer is amazing! Being a first time home buyer brings a lot of fears and questions but having Summer there through-out the process made things effortless and easy since day one. With my utmost sincerity and highest regards, I would recommend Summer for all your loan needs. ”
Isaac Gutierrez - CMMS Adminstrator
“Summer worked extremely hard to ensure that my wife and I had little to worry about. Whenever summer required any documentation from my wife and I we made sure to get it to her right away. She would even stay past her companies business hours to make sure we were able to get her all the paper work. The meetings were always productive and easy whenever we had to meet and review documents for the loan. ”
Tyler Killam - Home Buyer
“This was our second time working with Summer and we had another excellent experience. Summer took the time to make sure the smallest details were always completed ahead of time. When our first home fell through Summer worked overtime to help us purchase a different home. Thanks to her knowledge and experience we were able to close on time and budget. If you are looking for an experienced, knowledgeable loan officer with excellent communication skills you will find none better than Summer. If we decide to purchase again we will only work with her. ”
Dave Lance
“Summer is great to work with. She takes care of all the details. She is knowledgeable and let me know everything I would need to to provide and made it very easy for me. I highly recommend her.”
Darci Dekker - Self employed
“This was the 2nd time I've worked with Summer when buying my home. Thankfully she made things very clear re the documents I needed to present. Summer was able to have my house close in a very timely manner. If I were to ever sell the house I'm in now, I would definitely return to Summer to help me with my next purchase. I only have words of praise for Summer. ”
Blake Bond
“Summer made refinancing our home an easy and peaceful process, not the usual words associated with obtaining a mortgage. She communicated clearly, quickly, and was very transparent. We live more than 45 minutes from Summer's office, and we still chose to work with her because of how highly she was recommended to us. She even helped us find a recommended title company in our small town to help us avoid a long drive at closing. We will work with her again when it comes time to buy another home.”
Mayra Cornejo
“Summer is awesome! She was available to us all the time, she is very knowledgeable and always worked with us in every way. I would definitely work with Summer for our next home. ”
Tiffany Guerard - Connections Director
“I've used Summer's services on two home purchases and both have been a great experience. Summer is highly efficient, knowledgeable, respects your time and keeps you informed throughout the stages of the home buying process. I've referred many friends to her, in all different stages of the home buying process. I appreciate how she was able to meet the need of each friend, some ready to buy a home, and others she helped get ready to buy a home. My husband and I are considering other ventures in our life and we're very grateful we can count on Summer to help us along. ”
Debra Tucker
“Having a house built can be stressful. The most confusing, stressful part is the loan process. Summer was always available for questions and ready to explain in language I could understand. I would definitely seek out Summer if I were in the need of a loan in the future”
Jayson Mcfadden - Jayson Mcfadden
“Summer did an amazing job. She was very informative, understanding and knowledgeable. Any questions we had she was pleased to answer right away.

“Summer Pineda expertly handled the financing options for our out-of-state purchase of our home in Yakima. The house we purchased was listed on Craigslist (a sale by owner). Ms. Pineda guided the sale smoothly to its conclusion two days before Christmas 2016. We could not have been happier with her professionalism and care, and without hesitation offer our highest recommendation for her services.”
Daniel Erickson - Marine Fisheries Policy Analyst
“We will not hesitate to ask Summer Pineda to help us acquire our loan for our next purchase. We purchased 2 properties through Homebridge, and we will definitely go through the same company for the third. The primary reason is the professional and personalized service that Ms. Pineda provided to us. She works tirelessly, always made us feel comfortable, is an expert in her field, and takes the extra steps that others may not take. She is one of those special individuals that is a gift to work with. We give Summer Pineda our highest recommendation. ”

“I was introduced to Summer by my realtor in 2015 during a home purchase. Summer was able to close the deal in 35 days from start to finish. i commend her for her over and above efforts since i am not an easy person to finance owning several businesses. Summer also was able to finance my son to buy his first home at age 24. I would recommend her for any of your financing needs.”
Tara Rojas - Dental Hygienist
“I recently bought a home for the 2nd time. I was dreading the entire process because the experience i had buying my first home was confusing and awful. There were a couple of big bumps in the road due to my job situation. Summer kept me aware of what was going on and reassured me she would help in any way possible to make sure I got the home I fell in love with this time around. She did not give up on me once and got my loan approved in time for me to get my current home! I am grateful to her to this day! She is hardworking and very passionate about her career. You will be in competent, confident hands. Thank you again Summer! ❤”

She was so helpful and patient, taking time to answer all of our questions... even so, long after our closing date! We would definitely recommend her services to anyone, especially those new to the home buying process! Tenya Moravec”
Kaci Worley - Community Impact & Evaluation Coordinator
“Summer was very friendly and made the loan process very simple. The loan was preapproved so quickly and I was able to make an offer to purchase my dream home. I had questions after purchasing the house and was able to contact her and have those questions answered immediately. I highly recommend her.”
Jim and Catie
“Summer was great! Super responsive when we had questions or needs and helped guide us through the purchase of our first home. We were using a VA loan, which, while not super hard, does add a little bit of complexity to the process. She made the whole process very easy for us; explaining everything thoroughly and in a way that was easy to understand. Very professional. We initially started our loan application through a different bank and were constantly having problems with the loan officer not answering questions in a timely manner (or correctly as it turns out), or needing to make several phone calls to get things done, reviewed, etc. We were getting really discouraged. At the recommendation of our agents we contacted Summer and she pretty much saved the day for us. Summer was always quick with getting back to us which was really great because we ended up going through inspection on the first house we offered on and discovered some stuff that made us decide to back out. We ended up with a better and bigger house in the end and were lucky to have Summer on our team! ”
A’nna Fish - Case Resource Manager
“Summer is knowledgeable and easy to work with. She was quick to provide me with as many loan options as possible and helped make my home buying experience simple.”
Keri Compton - Home Owner
“Summer worked with us through a very difficult transaction that lasted far longer than it should've. She worked hard to make sure we got things done as soon as possible and worked with us on the down payment as the time stretch kept increasing the documentation fees. All of our questions were answered promptly and she was readily available for questions whereas some other loan agents wouldn't have been. I highly recommend working with Summer Pineda for your home loan needs.”
