Relationships are king.

The most successful partnerships are born from strong relationships. HomeStreet bankers prefer to start ours over coffee, not a spreadsheet. It’s more about a human relationship than a business relationship. When you work with a HomeStreet banker, you get a collaborator, a believer, a gut-check-on-Sunday sounding board. This approach is just one reason our partnerships last for decades. Here are a few more: 


Some call us obsessed, but we think that’s a good thing. Other banks might brush up on your plans and goals once a year, but we can speak to what you’re doing day in, day out. We pay attention to the details. And while we are adept at meeting your needs today, it’s our ability to help you anticipate what’s next that showcases our true value.

Local ally.

If something doesn’t add up, our West Coast and Hawaii bankers are just down the street or a phone call away. Our knowledge of the local landscape and what it takes to do business in our part of the country allows us to advocate for you and make decisions here and now—not from three time zones away.

But don’t take our word for it—see what our customers are saying about their relationship with HomeStreet Bank.

HomeStreet Bankers are empowered to be true business partners—to see through your eyes and to build plans with you, not for you. Sometimes bankers change banks, but when you’ve found your person and established a strong relationship, you follow them—sometimes for 20+ years.
“My clients appreciate that I am always looking to help them better their business: whether by helping them improve the analytics of their business, referring them to other experienced professionals, providing well structured financing packages, and sometimes even challenging them on their plans.”

Dino D’Auria
California Regional President, Commercial Banking

No two businesses are alike, and neither are our banking solutions. Standard-issue, cookie-cutter blueprints simply aren’t part of our vocabulary. HomeStreet bankers craft unique plans tailored to your position today—and to where you’re headed tomorrow. It’s flexible thinking like this that led to financing two lakes and a 75,108 SF distribution center for this industry leading watersports equipment company.
“For our commercial clients, the right banker should ultimately be an extension of the company's financial advisory team. My team and I take the extra time to sit down and review financial trends with our business owners, CFOs, and controllers. We discuss operating trends within the business, review key ratios the bank uses to make decisions, and thoroughly explain how certain trends and ratios can be useful indicators of current and future performance. We don't shy away from difficult conversations when we believe they will be valuable to help an operator make the right decision for their business.”
