Outside of the office, there’s nothing more she enjoys than spending time with her family. She loves cooking, wine tasting, painting (www.rhondaporterart.com) and recently started sailing with her husband, Rocko (their cat) and Hitch (their retriever) around the San Juans and Gulf Islands.
People Are Talking.
Besides keeping us posted on options and mandatory details such as signatures and other time-sensitive documentation, Rhonda also explained the complexities of the mortgage world in easy to follow steps and with careful attention to detail and tons of patience. One of our favorite features – I think this is when we started calling her a rock star – was when several options were sent to us with audio/video explanations of what it all meant! That was cool!
Anyway, our loan closed on time – despite the fact that it happened over Christmas and with us 500 miles away in Southern Oregon.
If you are looking for a team you can trust with such a life changing event like a real estate transaction, Rhonda Porter and her A-Team at Mortgage Masters are the best!
Rhonda, and her team, are so incredibly knowledgeable and forthright that you’ll notice an incredibly high level of service from day one. They’re available, smart, quick, seamless, and so supportive in requests and options.
We used them in our most recent purchase and Rhonda worked through different options and approaches, got the pre-approval sorted out right away, so that my wife and I could work through the shopping side of the real estate equation. Rhonda and team worked closely with our agent and there was never a hiccup in communication. Just excellent every day, every offer (there were many), without hesitation.
In all of my service dealings, even outside of purchasing a home, I rank Rhonda and her team the highest marks. Truly excellent.
There are literally dozens and dozens of Mortgage Brokers in the Seattle area. If you need help deciding, just trust me, Rhonda and her team need to be on your short list. The purchase process is stressful enough; why would you allow the finance side be stressful too? Go with them and take some solace that you’re in safe hands
Best experience ever for a refi and a vacation home purchase.
I will definitely give them my business again and suggest them to others who are looking to buy.
Rhonda - both you and Janette have been awesome to deal with and so incredibly responsive.
The experience that I had with you contrasts highly against the experience with other lenders I have dealt with in my years….it’s just no comparison.
You guys are the best. Thanks again!
