What Others Say About Us

I'm very satisfied with my loan officer, Michael Patterson. He provided excellent service for us. He helped us close the loan within the tight timeframe. We got pretty good rate. Our case is some complicated. He worked with the city and resolved the issue. Without his help, we won't be able to close the deal. I highly recommend him! 

Cynthia Tian - Microsoft, Bellevue, WA

"Are these guys for real!?!? As if buying a home is not stressful enough, try finding a home, getting financed and moving all within 3 weeks! This was not our first home purchase but it was by far the easiest. I will be the first to admit I am a very demanding client and ask a million questions, several times a day, 7 days a week. Both Michael and Kenton were highly receptive to our needs and worked well over their shift hours to accommodate our needs and concerns. Never did I feel un-important or "set aside". I trusted each one of them during the entire process and I will never recommend anyone else for loan services other than them. I consider them friends and could not speak more highly of their professionalism, hard work, dedication, commitment and optimism. If you’re looking for a lender that thinks outside the box; these are your guys. They took part in providing my family our dream home we never thought was possible. Thank you! "

Michael did an absolutely fantastic job on closing this loan. I had a particularly tricky refinance situation - with all sorts of snags - and Michael was always there doing the blocking and tackling to keep the ball moving forward. I haven't worked with a better lender and definitely recommend him. I'm sending all of my friends and family to Michael.

"Joe Sissel and Lauri Ragus - Kenton Becker was referred to us thru our Real Estate Agent. He provided us with professional, prompt and a consistent high level of customer service. We were in daily contact with Kenton and he was easy to reach in times of stress when buying a new house. If I left a message for Kenton, he always returned my call within 15 minutes. He helped with any paperwork that we did not understand. I am a Branch Operations Manager for a bank and deal with the public on a daily basis, I know how important customer service is and how important it is to my customers to be available to answer questions and find solutions for them. Kenton showed all of that and more. He is a kind person and makes you feel very comfortable. He is an asset to your company and you should feel fortunate that he has chosen your company to work for. "

"We are extremely pleased with our experience in working with Michael Patterson. He was very articulate and detailed in explaining to us and guiding us through the refinance process. We are extremely happy with our interest rate! We'll definitely refer our friends and use Michael in any future loans. Thank you to Michael Patterson!"

Steve & Sue Whittier, Gig Harbor, WA

"Recommending Michael, Wow... what can I say? He is extremely professional, ethical, personable, tenacious and truly a knowedgable thinker. Wearing so many hats; from managing the staff, keeping up with mortgage compliance, taking individual loan applications, to rolling up his sleeves and processing individual loan files when the staff is overrun. He not only keeps up, but excels! I truly would recommend Michael's work and character for any endeavor."

~December 2, 2008, Gregg Levin, Mortgage Banker, Sales Manager, Misc. Banks & Mortgage Companies

Michael responded promptly with the good faith estimates and was very personable. He has been encouraging and helpful with the appraisal in the downward trend of home prices. We will continue the process with him.

Mike and I are so happy with the results of our refinance. We really were able to accomplish all of our goals. I am amazed that we were able to get a lower interest rate, a lower monthly payment, and still get cash out to pay off other debt...which will save us even more money. You knew what you were doing and did everything possible to make this process easy and successful for us.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Again, I couldn't be more thrilled with how everything turned out.

All my best,

Lindsey (and Mike) Corley, Kirkland, WA


I would like to take this time to sincerely thank you for a great job done and your absolute professionalism in handling my home loan. From the moment we first conversed I know I could rest assured that you would get the job done. You kindly led me through all the steps needed to make my dream come true even when here were a couple of tense moments. Your courteous demeanor definitely kept me grounded and focused.

I will highly recommend you to friends and family. My realtor was also very impressed with your work and I believe has already referred someone to you.

Again, I cannot express my gratitude. You are an absolute asset to your company.

With much love to you,

Yvonne Lebron, Yelm, WA

Kenton Becker's service was outstanding all through the process. I have done 15 - 20 loans and My experience with Kenton was great. He always returned my calls or E-mails promptly and got me the information I requested.

Ken Morris, Everett, WA

I contacted Kenton Becker to inquire about potential Lease Option investment properties available. Kenton was very helpful throughout the entire process. He explained the entire process and the different services that they coul provide. Once I made a decision to move forward with a lease option investment he helped me find both a property and tenant to fit my current investment needs.

Kenton handled the entire mortgage process and was always available to answer questions and address any concerns that came up. He was very flexible around my busy schedule which made the application process through to closing a very painless procedure.

I now have a property that is producing positive cash flow every month as well as a very happy tenant that has every intention to exercise their lease option after one year.

Zack Ketter, Kent, WA

“My experience was very positive. I really believed it would be impossible to get into the home of my choosing, and be in a position to own it and build equity considering my credit score. Kenton and Aaron helped me find the perfect home. They accomplished it all according to the timeline requested and they communicated every step along the way. Every promise, every hope, every part of this transaction came together just as they said it would. Truly, they are men of integrity."

"I really enjoyed working with Kenton, he was very effcient and always followed up right away. It was a pleasure work with him. "

This letter is my personal recommendation for Kenton Becker and Land Home financial.

Kenton was our mortgage broker for our recent home purchase, which closed July 25th, 2009.

I first met Kenton three years before we purchased our home.  In that time, he stayed engaged with my wife and I, as we slowly navigated the complicated Seattle area real estate market.  He was patient, thoughtful, very pleasant, and always encouraging, and informative.

In all transactions Kenton was organized, thorough, and personable. He offered us an objective viewpoint on financing, credit worthiness, interest rates, closing costs, and current area property values, thereby helping us with our decision.  We found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable about all aspects of mortgage finance and realty, which surpassed our high expectations.  Furthermore we were consistently impressed by his willingness to research all of our questions, which were many.   He was always expedient in returning our calls and emails, while we were busy searching properties, and neighborhoods.

When we ran into issues with our loan, Kenton was instrumental in helping us navigate the many details, and difficulties, so that we could close on our home.  Additionally, we were also faced with re-leasing our rental property, which was further complicating our closing date, and adding stress.  Kenton helped us with recommendations in finding a qualified tenant to take over the lease, allowing us to close on time, and at a minimal cost.   

In closing, I highly recommend Kenton Becker to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions you might have regarding Kenton’s expert level qualifications, and attributes.

Hi Kenton,


I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your help over the last few weeks trying to get my house re-financed.  I know that we were not the easiest or organized people so we would like to say thank you for your patience and understanding.  Since the econocmic down turn the lending process has become very demanding and stressful.  I appreciate you answering your phone even though you knew it was me and I was calling to complain about something.  Oh and the fax machine, need I say more.  Thanks for everything.


Randy and Janice Frisbie, University Place, WA


Thank you for making the process so easy for us.  Being that we both work 60+ hours a week, with 2 in College and 2 in High School, there was no way we could have made it through this refinance without you.  I still can't believe the excellent rate you found us.  Thanks for keeping us on task and ensuring all of our documents were ready for closing.  Couldn't have done it without you.

Charles & Nelliena Moetului,  Snoqualmie, WA

"Kenton was an awesome mortgage advisor. He was knowledgable about the loan process, making it easy to understand the process and would even anticipated questions that I might have. It was helpful that he was willing to meet to exchange documents and I felt he went above his obligation by going with my husband and I when we went to sign the final documents. I had a positive experience working with him and would work with him again."

Jessica Jackson Youngblood, Puyallup, WA

I’ve worked with Kenton for the last 6 years and been very pleased with his work ethic and morals.  Recently I wrote an offer on a short sale home for a buyer.  After some time we received our approval from the bank stating they were accepting our offer.  However, the approval they gave us was only good for and allowed us 3 weeks to close.  I’ve been told by a lot of brokers that loans these days can take anywhere from 35 – 40 days to close.  So needless to say time was of the essence.  Kenton and his team rose up to the challenge and were not only able to complete this task on time… but ahead of schedule too!  He had final docs drawn and ready to be signed by both buyer and seller in 2 weeks, and we were able to close the loan from start to finish in 2 ½ weeks!

Aaron Rosen,  Real Estate Agent, Bellevue, WA

Just a quick note to let you know we signed everything yesterday. Thanks for setting up the mobile notary - that was super convenient for us. Another successful refi in the books thanks to you and your team. 
Thanks again!
P.S. If you ever want a testimonial, I'd be happy to provide it. Your team rocks!


Thank you so much for being a blessing to our family. We would not be in our home today without all of hte extra work that you put into our loan. You made a miracle happen. 

- Ben & Emily

P.S. Our children will know you as "superman".

Hey guys!

Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help (even through all the various changes and bumps haha).  You were all great to work with, and I know exactly who I want to work with when I buy my next home =)!.  I'm loving my new condo!  Just wanted to say thanks again, and I really appreciate all your help to make this happen =).

I plan to recommend you all to all my friends!

To Whom It May Concern:

Simply put I believe Michael Patterson has one the best lending teams in the industry. He has the experience, knowledge and work ethic to get loans closed. He is also someone that answers his phone, returns your emails and keeps you updated throughout the loan process.  What also sets his team apart is his understanding of what is required when doing a loan on a bank owned REO property. Many times REO properties have repair related issues and Michael is great at helping you identity loan products that you can use to get the deal closed. I highly recommend Michael to anyone that wants to have a lending team that will work with you to get your properties sold.
