 Laura Wells  LAURA WELLS, CMPS, Movement Mortgage, Spokane
I have over 26 years of experience in mortgage lending and hold the designation of Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist. As a seasoned Premier Partner, I have helped hundreds of low-to-moderate income families in Spokane on their paths to homeownership using the Commission’s programs. I work with clients to help them understand the home loan process, from pre-qualification to keys in their hands, and how to reach their long-term financial goals. As a dedicated financing advisor I feel the Commission’s programs, including the Home Advantage and HomeChoice programs, are among the most helpful, unique ways to meet borrowers’ financial goals. I am passionate about improving lives through homeownership and I regularly conduct Commission-sponsored homebuyer education seminars in the Spokane area.

Glenn Leach  GLENN LEACH, Absolute Mortgage, Puyallup
Why do I do what I do? I met Nick and Merissa and their severely disabled teenage daughter at the Puyallup Fair. They had dreamed of owning a home but they didn't believe it was possible. Their credit was poor and their incomes wouldn't allow them to afford a home suitable to care for their daughter. When I showed them how they could combine programs and qualify for up to $75,000 in down payment assistance, Merissa cried. It took a year to help them fix their credit, but they did it. Because the Commission’s programs exist, they were motivated to do the work necessary to qualify. Today, they own a beautiful home with an affordable payment and their adult daughter has her own floor to live on. These programs were the encouragement they needed to change their lives, and I was blessed to play a role in their "Happily Ever After" story. And THAT'S why I do what I do!
