I bring over a decade of industry experience to the service of my customers in the Greater Seattle area. I take a special interest in helping people get the financing they need - so they can get the home of their dreams. I pride myself in being able to find the right loan at the best rate for each of my customer's unique situations.
I am committed to the process of assisting homebuyers and I am very knowledgeable in the climate of our constantly changing industry standards. I specialize in equity management and first-time mortgages, and I work hard to make sure my customers understand each step of the home loan process.
One of the most important things that you need to know about me is I answer my phone! I respond quickly to your calls, emails and texts. You will never be left wondering where you are at in the loan process, because I will contact you every step of the way.
I have a BS in Accounting from the University of Montana as well as a graduate certificate in Personal Financial Planning from the University of Missouri. I am always updating my knowledge base to stay abreast of industry changes.
I am also an owner and landlord of six rental properties, giving me personal experience to help guide investors.
I am proud to be working with HomeStreet Bank. We process, underwrite, and fund our loans right here in Seattle. We have the ability to broker if necessary. We also offer Co-ops and reverse mortgages.
HomeStreet Bank is one of the largest community banks in the Northwest. Since 1921, we've stayed focused on what we believe is most important: building long-term relationships with our customers and providing ongoing support to our communities. Best of all, our rates are super competitive and our fees are some of the very lowest out there.
I am very involved in my community and giving back. I sit on the board of Rainbow Families of Puget Sound and am an active volunteer in a number of other organizations.
I look forward to working with you!
"We just bought our first house and we contacted Kate for the loan. Kate was very good in explaining to us everything regarding the loan. She was fast and really nice, and very knowledgeable. It is obvious that she knows what she is talking about, and that she understands it."
"We were already homeowners when we decided to move to another house. Given the market conditions, selling our house was not an option. We contacted several banks and brokers inquiring about what options were available for us. All of them answered that the only possibility was to get a home equity line of credit loan. When I emailed Kate she answered back that she had yet another option. So we met to discuss about it. She was great in explaining the pros and cons of both options and made things always very clear to us. She is very friendly and open minded, she was very flexible with our schedules given that we have a small child and even offered to meet us after hours and bring in the child to her office. That was awesome!"
"Kate is a trusted mortgage resource and a sincere pleasure to work with. She is well-versed in the finance side of real estate, fun to work with and a die-hard professional. I proudly recommend her to my clients, friends and family."
“Loan officers are a very integral part of a real estate transaction. Having a mortgage broker like Kate Beck is such a treat! She is professional, friendly, and she responds quickly to any questions that may arise during the transaction. She always gets the loan closed on time (or sooner!). Kate is wonderful and I highly recommend her if you are purchasing or refinancing a home."

“Kate is an expert in her field and provided a great service for us when we moved internationally. She is very personable and goes the extra mile to make a good job great. We always had confidence that she was providing solutions that were in our best interests. That counts for a lot when you don't know the financial landscape."
