What People are Saying

  • If I could give beyond 5 stars I would! Ruby, Spin, Ellaina and the entire team at Salmon Bay were outstanding. We learned so much from them as first time home buyers. They were patient and available to us to answer questions, and Ruby really went above and beyond to provide us with a positive experience. Ruby and her team are really one of the reasons we were able to successfully buy a home in this market and we’re so grateful.

  • I didn’t know mortgage brokers came in such a great package. My experience with Salmon Bay felt totally personalized. Ruby is very clear about the math, the pre-approval process, and establishing expectations. She asks important questions and cares about your individual goals. The whole Salmon Bay team was very supportive and responsive. I trusted the process the entire way. Seattle has a lot of great local businesses this is one of them!

  • Professionalism, dependability, consistency, integrity, follow-through (all with a sense of warmth and humor) are only some of the qualities I and my clients may count on when working with the team. Ruby Grynberg and her amazing fellow mortgage consultants have closed dozens upon dozens of deals for my clients. Incredibly, we have a PERFECT on-time closing record.

    Tyler M.
  • Every month when I pay my mortgage (woohoo!), I pray to the house gods to bless you in every possible way. You and your company are a model, for ethics and for kindness and caring about people. Most folks just say it, you DO IT!

  • Ruby helped us finance our first house and was great to work with. Most importantly, she wasn’t comfortable approving us for more than we budgeted because she truly wanted to help us find a house we loved and could afford.
