I began my mortgage career in 2000, after 14 years in the title and escrow industry. My background in title and escrow was an invaluable experience, giving me a unique understanding and perspective on mortgage lending.  With over thirty years in related fields, I’ve become passionate about educating my clients, offering the best mortgage products for their needs,  and helping them navigate the entire process.

I am a state approved Home Buyer Education instructor and author of a nationally recognized blog, The Mortgage Porter. I’m honored to have been recognized by my peers as one of the top Mortgage Originators in Washington state at the WAMP Leadership & Humanitarian awards, four consecutive years. 

I specialize in residential lending for both purchase and refinance mortgages. Whether you are a first time home buyer, self-employed, buying vacation homes or investment property or looking for a jumbo mortgage, it gives me great pleasure to help people. 

Away from the office, I enjoy painting (especially on black velvet), gardening and making a mess of our kitchen. Of course nothing brings me greater joy than spending time with our family, which includes our three adults kids, and our dog & cat. 

My business is 100% referral or returning clients. It’s my goal to establish relationships that will last beyond the closing of each transaction. I hope to earn the opportunity to work with you!

Rhonda and her associates worked quickly and stayed with me every step of the way to make sure I made my timelines. Offering assistance if I did not understand something. All this made my refinance successful! Thank You!! I will tell all my friends and relatives.

Rhonda is extremely competent and friendly. She was also very patient, keeping in touch with us during a very long search for a house. I’d highly recommend her services.

Rhonda and her entire team helped to make our refinance quick and painless and I would recommend them to anyone seeking any kind of loan. Whenever we had a question Rhonda was there to answer – often within minutes. Two notable encounters included a response at about 10pm and another during her vacation!

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!

We’ve worked with Rhonda and her team several times now on a prior purchase, refinancing and now on the purchase of our current home. She’s very thorough, honest and seemingly available any time of day to answer questions and make sure we’re up to date with the status of the loan process. Highly recommended.

We worked with Rhonda as our lender for our first home purchase. She was awesome to work with. She laid out a multitude of different loan options for us. Rhonda was very knowledgeable and able to quickly answer any questions. She was extremely responsive which I hugely appreciated. We primarily communicated through e-mail, but she was also always available to call or meet in person if needed. I know that I asked a lot of questions and was always requesting different loan scenarios. She would always answer my questions or provide new scenarios without hesitation. We ended up settling on a VA loan. I learned that not many realtors and sellers have much experience with VA loans and some people have a negative perception of them. Rhonda did a great job of working with both our realtor and the selling agent to educate them on VA loans and answer any of the questions that they had. I think that made huge difference in allowing the purchase to go very smoothly. Overall, Rhonda was great to work with, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Where to begin?

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

Thank you Rhonda for helping us get into our new home. You made the process easy! I will definitely recommend you in the future to our friends and family looking for a mortgage.

Rhonda and Janette at Mortgage Masters were amazing to work with on our recent refinance! They were extremely friendly, fast, responsive, and knowledgeable. I found them through Yelp and Google reviews, and I can't be happier about it. They went above and beyond in every way by responding to every question in a clear and surprisingly quick way, and by sending personalized videos throughout the process, which was really helpful. Their office was easily located in the Kent valley between Tukwila and Kent and I was able to stop by during my lunch break at work to sign initial papers, but after that everything was online and the title company came to our house after work to sign the final paperwork. I felt well taken care of, and we closed almost a week earlier than what was initially estimated. I definitely recommend using their service!

Just an incredibly helpful team, Rhonda, Janette and Debbie were all awesome. Right from the start they were straightforward to deal with, clear and concise in their communication and a total pleasure to work with.  Every time I called I would get straight through to them, no leaving messages and wondering when I'd hear back.  Emails were replied to in a matter of minutes, with simple and effective communication, friendliness, and a sense of humor!

Best experience ever for a refi and a vacation home purchase.

I was really nervous about buying my first home. I am so pleased that I chose to go with Rhonda Porter at Mortgage Master Service Corporation. Everyone made it so easy to understand for a first time home buyer and were unbelievably easy to work with!

I will definitely give them my business again and suggest them to others who are looking to buy.

I moved a couple of boxes last night… :) I just wanted to drop a note and say “Thank You!”
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!

Working with Rhonda and her colleagues was a great experience. We were first-time buyers, so they had to walk us through many of the steps and processes. We had many questions, and Rhonda always answered them patiently (and often during evenings and weekends!). We know that Rhonda probably works with many clients at any given time, but she was always so responsive, which was critical given the current market. In the end, we got a great mortgage on a great home!

It's been a long journey and hard to believe that we finally found a home that we both love! Our thanks to all of you for making this possible, and for all of your hard work. We really appreciated the communication provided throughout the process (start to finish), ans the video's provided are very educational...especially for a first time home buyer. Thank you again, you're all amazing!!
