Meet the Team: Adam Criswell

We’re starting a new series! We’ve got an awesome team, and we think you should know them.

Floating on a river

First up: Adam Criswell. He’s been with us since the winter of 2011, and spends his days reading tax returns and working with you to get your loan closed. 

What’s something you splurge on in your home? Speakers. What’s something you’re unwilling to spend on? Delivery food. It’s a convenience I’m unwilling to pay for.

Something in your life that you can’t live without? 3 weeks ago I would have said coffee. But today, it’s people. I’m an extrovert, and I would go stir crazy without getting to connect with people daily.

If money were no object, where would you live? Everywhere! I’m able to be pretty content wherever I am, so a life of travel sounds amazing. If I had to anchor in one spot though, it would be London. The food, the drink (did you know they have a museum of Gin?), the history, the hustle and bustle; it’s my kind of place.

Favorite place in Seattle? Early mornings on Lake Union.

What’s something you want people to understand about mortgages? They aren’t something you get to just run in and grab, like a pastry. You are an active participant in making this happen, and we need your help to do it.

What’s your favorite childhood memory? When I was a kid, my friends and I used to hike to these waterfalls near where I grew up. We would just lay on the river rocks for hours in the sun. Definition of happiness.

What’s one thing you thought you knew, and later found out you were wrong about? I used to think I didn’t like Indian food. It took me a little while to figure out, but boy was I wrong. Delicious. Pretty much always.
