Testimonials for Andrea McGhee
"Andrea knows her stuff. She was able to answer all of my questions and explain the process throughout."
"I first meet Andrea McGhee in 2003 when I moved to Olympia Washington from out of state. Andrea came highly recommended for her knowledge, professionalism, and customer service. She did not disappoint! I was so pleased with her services that I turned to her on subsequent occasions when I needed to secure financing to purchase or refinance a home. I value her for her knowledge of the business, integrity, and ability to work quickly. It's great to have someone you can trust to provide excellent service on your behalf."
It was such a pleasure to work with Andrea as she helped us with the refinancing of our rental home. We had tried to refinance in the past but were unable due to insufficient equity. She knew we had tried in the past, kept us in mind and let us know when she thought the time was right. She made the process so simple by picking up and dropping off needed documents and explaining and helping us through all the steps. It has been such a relief to be able to finally refinance and we so appreciated Andrea’s knowledgeable help. We will definitely think of Andrea if we need a mortgage broker in the future.

When I started researching my options for the possibilities of purchasing and owning a home in 2014, Andrea McGhee of Weststar Pacific Mortgage Company soon became part of my journey. Andrea ensured that all of my documents contained the correct information required for my loan. Andrea went above and beyond to ensure that all of my documents were submitted timely and helped answer any questions I had. I now have a beautiful home. I find it difficult to express in words how much this meant to my wife and I to be able to share our new home with our grandchildren when they come to stay. Thank you so much for becoming a part of our lives and helping us obtain the home of our dreams.
We decided that because we had such wonderful service with Andrea purchasing a home 12 years ago that we wanted to use her again. Andrea works really hard to get her clients the best rates and truly has their best interest in mind. She isn't just out there to get a loan closed. She goes above-and-beyond and does everything she can to make your home buying experience successful and a positive. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing lender.
In our 25 years of marriage, my husband and I have purchased four homes. Our most recent purchase was by far the least stressful loan process. It was our good fortune to have employed Andrea McGhee from Weststar Pacific Mortgage. Andrea was straight forward with us every step of the way, clearly outlining what information was required from us. By far, the most important quality to us was Andrea's rapid response time whether it was by phone, text or email. We always received a prompt response. We have had less than awesome experiences with past purchases, but from my very first phone conversation with Andrea I felt a sense of honesty. I heartily recommend Andrea to anyone requiring a mortgage loan
Communicated all the time…
I love the house. I am slowly making her look like a 1920 home but I have 5 years to do that. I really appreciate all that you have done to help with this loan. I am very happy how detailed you were about all the information that was needed. We were able to communicate all the time through emails and text. That is one thing I valued the most working with you. Communication is the key and that is what you did.

Andrea helped me on two home loans in the last four years. Working with her was a positive experience on both occasions. Andrea is a courteous, knowledgeable and diligent professional. I really appreciated how focused and responsive she was throughout the process. I hope to work with her again in the future and I would recommend her to anyone in the market for a new home and great service.
