If the saying "you are only as good as your weakest link" is true, then I am one lucky guy! I have assembled the best Mortgage Origination team on the planet, and I'm excited for you to meet them.
Shane's Story: Retired Firefighter Turned Entrepreneur
My name is Shane Kidwell and they call me the Blue Collar Banker! I started my career as a Seattle Firefighter before becoming an entrepreneur and love helping people! My wife and I are proud Washington Husky Alum and go to many Husky athletic events. We believe that to whom much is given much is required and believe it's important to give back to our local community. A portion of all profits go to The Wounded Warrior Foundation & many local non profits including cancer research in honor of my dad. I will never turn down a good cup of coffee and pride myself on being transparent in my business. I feel that making it right and being honest at all costs is better than making an extra dollar. I don't have clients, just family.
Shane has received many local and nationwide accolades and distinctions.
