Thank you for visiting my Active Rain page. It's hard to believe but I have been in mortgage lending now for more than 15 years! I guess time flies when you are having fun!!
I have survivied raising 3 children (mostly) and my husband and I have been married for almost 30 years now! We love spending time with our family and friends and our furry four legged friends too!
When not helping people buy/refinance their homes, we enjoy travelling, exploring wineries and supporting our local sports teams...Go Hawks!!
Being a loan officer has allowed me to meet an amazing number of people over the years that started out as clients and business partners, but I have ended up being able to call my friends! That makes coming to work everyday not only fun, but meaningful!
Thanks again for visiting my page!

|My wife and I were first-time home buyers when we met Barb and Christie Taggart (KW Puyallup) at a Home Buyer Education Seminar where they introduced us to the ins and outs of purchasing real estate. We were overwhelmed at first by the complexity of the process but Barb and Christie were exceptional teachers who patiently worked with us for nearly a year before we found the right home. We were looking for a historic house that needed TLC and Barb was always ready to offer her input on prospective properties and quickly identify financing options and potential issues. We had a great time getting to know Barb and look forward to working with her and Christie again someday.|

|Barbara helped me through a refinance. She was very responsive, let me know about the process every step of the way. When she needed something from me she would explain the reasons and would even stop by my house to pick up documents if they were needed in a hurry. My refi went quickly and smoothly, I ended with a rate and new mortgage payment that surprised me! I would definitely use Barbara again and highly recommend her services to others.|
|Barbara made the entire home buying process super easy and as simple as possible. Her attitude was extremely pleasant and she has left a lasting impact on my family. Every deal we do we will see if she is available.|

|Barbara was a great loan officer to work with. Very knowledgeable and always there to help through the whole process. She always had my best interest at heart and always gave me several loan options that worked for me and gave her advice and which one might be best suited for me. She was always flexible in regards to my schedule and made the whole process go as smoothly as she possibly could. Would recommend Barb to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.|
|Carla & Bryan H Tacoma, WA|
|Barbara is very professional and personable. As first time home buyers we were apprehensive about starting the loan process. Barbara explained everything we needed to know to understand the process and was very patient. She was always available at any time to answer our questions. Working with her was great and we feel that we have gained a friend!|
|Rick and Lacie D Everette, WA|
|We recently worked with Barbara, and she was able to lock us into a great rate, keep within our tight budget, and close within 4 weeks! From first bid to close was less than a month! And she answered every question we had, even after business hours. Plus, she met with us despite the 40+ miles between her office and our home.|

|Barb has helped us with several purchases and refinances. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. The loan process in itself can sometimes be a bit overwhelming but Barb helps you through it. She made sure our loan papers were complete and anticipated anything the processor may request. This made our loan go a lot smoother and quicker. Her experience in the industry and her dedication make her one of the best out there. My husband and I only use her when we need a lender. Plus she always finds us the best rate!!!|
|I loved working with Barb!!!! She helped me step by step on EVERYTHING... she was always there when I called and answered every crazy question I had. She went out of her way to help me get what I needed.....just love her and If I ever decide to sell or buy another home I will definitely be doing buisness with her and the whole Trey family again!!! Highly recommend Barb to anyone out there searching for a new home!!!! Hugs!!|
