Taryn Paulsen

Mortgage Loan Officer

Thanks for visiting! After 18 years in the mortgage industry I can honestly say that I’m still just as excited about mortgage lending today, as I was on my first day! To be involved with helping people purchase their next home or improve their financial position with a refinance – it’s pretty special to be a part of that. For me, my home is where I kick my shoes off at the end of the day, it’s where I watch my kids play in the yard or where I entertain friends and family. My home is such a huge part of family!

Why I think HomeStreet is THE place to be: I’m surrounded everyday by people that love what they do. Each and every one of them is committed to making the loan process fast, efficient and accurate. Our senior leaders here have assembled an elite team of Mortgage Ninjas! I’m amazed daily by my team. Their execution is top notch, the products and programs offered are competitive, and in many cases setting industry standards for excellence. Based in Seattle, HomeStreet Bank is one of the largest community banks headquartered in Washington. HomeStreet began in 1921 as Continental Mortgage and Loan Company, initially offering financing for commercial real estate and home mortgages. HomeStreet evolved into a full service bank in 1986, further expanding its products and services in 2000 to include business banking and lending. HomeStreet Bank is consistently recognized by the federal government as "Outstanding" under the Community Reinvestment Act.

"Taryn was a big asset in helping me to refinance my home. Was very professional at all times and was able to answer all my question and seemed to be able to relate to all circumstances. She would be the first one I recommend to friends and family. I definitely would want to work with Taryn again in the future if I have another need for home loans or get my questions answered."

"Taryn has helped us with many home loans in the past and I have recommended her to many friends and family because of her extensive knowledge and great follow through. Her responsiveness via phone, text or email is always immediate and is a real pleasure to work with."

"Over the past 6 years my husband and I have had several opportunities to refinance our home mortgage with Taryn Paulsen. In 2009 we refinanced to drop our interest rate and switch to a 15 year loan. In 2012 Taryn took the initiative to contact us with a refinancing offer that would lower our interest rate yet again and save us $300.00 a month! Taryn was easy to work with. She is very personable and always professional. During the refinancing process, Taryn maintained excellent communicaton and made herself available to address any questions or concerns. We highy recommend Taryn Paulsen for any home lending endeavor you are considering."
