My background spans over 30 years in the real estate and mortgage financing industry and includes construction, development, private financing, and originating countless owner occupied and investment mortgages. The correct financing package that suits the objectives of the client is critical to client satisfaction and success. My goal is to continue to serve my clients with the best possible service and competitive pricing I will satisfy your objectives in a prompt, professional and courteous manner. I look for ward to securing your confidence, trust and assisting with all your futures real estate financing needs.

Over the last 2 1/2 years my wife and I purchased our first home and then refinanced the home. This was a completely new experience for us and we came into with very little knowledge of the process. Jim Carter made every step of these two potentially daunting tasks extremely simple. He walked us through every detail and answered all of our questions as they came up. He made us feel like we were the only client he was working with! He was a true professional throughout and he is our first stop anytime we are thinking of anything to do with real estate now! — AJ & Kristi Parnell, Bothell, WA

Maryanne has over 25 years experience in the mortgage business and has gained a reputation for being reliable, caring, and an expert in the mortgage loan process. She has earned the trust of real estate agents, financial planners and their referred clients, always taking the extra time to ensure they feel comfortable and knowledgeable with the loan process.  As a real estate investor and homeowner herself, Maryanne can empathize with first time buyers who may be intimidated by the complexities of the mortgage industry.  She invites and encourages new clients to contact her to discuss their goals for homeownership, the current market and new loan programs now available.

Maryanne was extremely helpful during my first home purchase. She was very organized in letting me know exactly what was due and when. Her and her assistant Daisy really made the entire purchase easy. I was never lost or felt unsure of what was happening. She was there for me every step I took, and as a first-time buyer, I especially appreciated that. The next time I purchase a house, I am 100% going to contact Maryanne again!

In 2003, I started my career in the mortgage industry. I have found the joy in serving others amazingly fulfilling as they strive to secure their dreams of home ownership.  I am passionate about serving others and it is important to me that I align with a company of the same values: commitment to high service standards, practice with the utmost integrity and honesty, build trust and develop lifelong relationships with clients.   At Mortgage Advisory Group we embrace the values of honesty, integrity and family.  As I learn about my clients lives and help them with their home purchases, I am confident that my team members will embrace each transaction with the same level of commitment that I do. Our turn times consistently outperform others in the industry as does our customer service.  Each transaction receives the highest level of attention and support, creating happy clients for life.  In addition, I aspire to learn; having earned my undergrad degree from Washington State University and my Masters from Chapman University in Southern California.  This love of learning has served me well in the ever-changing mortgage world.  I am constantly taking classes and learning different programs so that I am able to advise my client’s of the best mortgage option for their individual needs.

Kathy Cooley is amazing.  Best customer service experience we have ever had.  We don’t believe we would have gotten our house without her.  First class, amazing, above and beyond. —  Robin and Rick S.

Kathy was awesome – very helpful and always available!  — Katie and Tyler M.

Craig Paladeau, Mortgage Loan Officer Sales Manager, EverBank

Cell 888.831.1390 | Fax 650.412.9228
6464 185th Ave. NE., Redmond, WA 98052

I am passionate about helping families purchase their dream homes and have worked as a loan officer for more than a decade with multiple banks and lending institutions. During this time, I have gained valuable experience in a wide variety of adjustable, conforming, nonconforming, fixed, jumbo, as well as construction loan programs and have built a solid track record of matching families with the right loan for their unique needs. I am never daunted by clients with complicated financial situations or seemingly impossible closing deadlines. These challenges just make my daily job that much more exciting. I have completed loans in more than 20 states, lending just shy of a billion dollars to date.

As a Sales Manager at EverBank, I am pleased to work with a highly-reputable bank that offers a wide variety of programs and terms, among the best available in the industry today. My staff and I are committed to complete client satisfaction, always available to provide guidance and answer questions throughout the mortgage process.

I live in the Seattle area with my wife and 5-year-old daughter, but have been fortunate enough to have lived throughout Europe, Canada, and the U.S., most recently spending the last 15 years in Silicon Valley, CA.  When I am not lending, you might find me running a marathon or working on one of the endless projects in my own home, as I am a consummate “fixer upper.”

We were having issues with a big lender and closing on time, when a friend recommended Craig. Craig met with us immediately, collected our paperwork, and got right to work. We were fully informed, the loan was as promised, and the closing was on time! — Vonna W.
