Get to know Augustus Bukowski
My favorite city in the world is Seattle, though I may be a little biased. I grew up in Phinney Ridge, went to St John Elementary, graduated from Nathan Hale and completed my Bachelor Degree at WSU.
Upon graduation in 2008, I moved home and began my career in mortgage. It wasn't long before I opened my own office in Queen Anne, where I still operate today.

Testimonials for Augustus Bukowski
Augustus is the best! Even our Escrow Agent mentioned to us how much she liked working with him. After Augustus gave us the Good Faith Estimate of our mortgage, I shopped around to make sure we were getting the best deal. I checked local banks, credit unions and the internet; noone beat what Augustus put together for us. Then on top of that, just before we closed, Augustus was able to drop our monthly payment by a few more dollars! He is very responsive and can breakdown and explain in simple terms some pretty complicated loan information. We ended up closing a week earlier than anticipated and could have closed earlier if we wanted. I highly recommend Augustus
Augustus is a life saver! I am a new agent and my first transaction almost fell through due to financing issues with my clients credit union. My buyer had pre-approval through a large credit union that we all know and love... however, mortgages are not their specialty. I was referred to Augustus through a co-worker. He was able to quickly figure out the core issue that was holding my client back and fix it the same day. Bay Equity was even able to get a lower rate for him. My buyer was ecstatic and I have a new go-to lender of choice!
Augustus made a great impression on us from the first time we met,(short notice on a Saturday afternoon), so we could get our loan docs completed before we went on vacation Monday morning. He continued to accommodate and support us every step of the way, keeping us informed, reassuring us (first time buyers- lots of anxiety!) and helping us to feel relaxed and secure about the whole process. He keeps you "in the loop" so you always know whats happening at every stage of the loan process. He responds immediately to all emails, texts and phone calls- very important to us. Even after the loan closed, Augustus continued to show concern. We discovered on move-in day that our home had been vandalized! Augustus somehow found out, and contacted us immediately, offering his support and willingness to do anything he could to help us through our difficulty. You will get the most attentive, personalized and professional loan - AND a terrific interest rate to boot!
Augustus has been so helpful. Extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. With my husband working out of the country it was very difficult for me to know in which direction to go or what to do. Everyone always tells me how stressful it is to buy a home. But I have to say that it was very painless with the professional help and guidance of Augustus and Heath Cunningham. They made feel comfortable and I felt I was in the right hands since this is my first time buying a home. I feel like I didn't only get outstanding service, but I also made a couple friends. They are very friendly, professional, and pleasant. And funny. If anyone is looking to buy a home, I highly recommend Augustus B. He works hard at making sure you're home buying experience is a positive one. He understands that buying our dream home for our family is important and a life event that we will treasure and enjoy for years to come and even generations down. We all know that there is nothing better than having pride in owning your home. And this two awesome guys got us there quickly and painlessly. Thank you guys! God Bless! ;)
Augustus was extremely helpful and efficient. He completed the entire pre approval and loan closure in a more timely manner than expected. He was personable and made the process low stress and reassured me along the way by frequently keeping me up to date by emails or personal phone calls. Thank you Augustus!
Augustus is the man in mortgage. His knowledge and experience is years beyond anyone I've met in the industry. He knows more about real estate than my agent did, and really helped me figure out what's important and how to make my dreams come true. He is a great professional and was very competitively priced among his competition. His speed and excellence was worth any extra I may have paid, and ultimately saved thousands by making sure my offer covered all the costs of the transaction. Augustus is who you need to trust with your home purchase.
Thank you to Augustus for his help in the purchase of our first home. He made the loan process quick and easy. He got us preapproved in a timely manner so that we could shop with confidence. When our offer was accepted he worked hard to get it closed quickly- 3 weeks! We are thankful that we got to lock in historically low interest rates and had a great team working hard to make it happen. Thank you Augustus for sharing your knowledge and expertise, we couldn't have done this without you!
I contact Augustus after viewing his profile. He was very busy at the moment I called, but understood the importance of moving forward quickly. He had his assistant Jeff gather all my information, which I was at first hesitant about, but Jeff was very nice and seemed to care about what mattered to me. I gave Jeff all of my information, and later that evening when most people would have left the office hours earlier, I got a call from Augustus.
He apologized for the delayed response. Which is hardly delayed considering all the other people I talked to were taking days, and coming back with partial information, and asking a ton of questions that did not matter. Augustus had thoroughly reviewed my situation and had real answers, he did not need to run to a manager to figure something out.
Most important Augustus readdressed all of the concerns I had told Jeff and did not leave one question unanswered. Because of his knowledge, expertise and overall manner of doing business I chose to go with him. To my amazement we closed on our new purchase well under 30 days and now own our first investment property.
Augustus is an A+ Rock Star... Use him!!!
Augustus did a fantastic job with our refinance. It was a swift and seamless process completed in less than 30 days. We were able to lock in a great rate, drop our payments, and even cut our insurance nearly in half. Glad I found him on Zillow and followed folks recommendation.
In the past, I had dealt with other brokers/banks pertaining to home purchase, re-financing, and honestly there were times that I felt that they lacked the experience/knowledge with feedback we were receiving. Before speaking with Augustus, in our minds we had prepared to deal with this type of process (Assumptions to be made, not clear as a plan forward and in-patient). Well, I was totally wrong, in fact, myself and my wife thought maybe there is a catch, it's working out to smoothly and it's moving along as indicated by Augustus. Augustus is extremely experienced, up to date and full of knowledge with the current market status, extremely accurate, he provided facts, not assumptions. Our re-financing moved forward, on-track (as he had advised us from the first day we had spoken with him). Augustus has great patients, he provides status throughout the process of re-financing, he will go out of his way to call you and follow up (Night's, week-ends). His team is outstanding, polite, professional and proactive. We HIGHLY recommend Augustus, once you speak with him, you will realize he's the broker you want. Thank you, Kelly
