Ruby started at the University of Washington at age 15 and has been on a high-achievement track ever since. With a degree in Social Work specializing in Mental Health, as well as a deep love of math, the stress and complexity of the mortgage industry is an oddly perfect fit. After working as a loan processor and loan officer for several years at both brokerages and banks, Ruby founded Salmon Bay Community Lending in 2005. Since then, Ruby has grown Salmon Bay to be a flourishing mortgage bank.
Ruby is active in her communities both professionally and personally. As former Co-Chair of the Government Affairs Committee for WAMP, she’s determined to help shape the future of the industry and looks for every opportunity to bring people together to influence the policies that impact the mortgage industry. Her 4 sons keep her running by day and her love of tango keeps her dancing when the sun goes down.
If I could give beyond 5 stars I would! Ruby 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.
Ruby and the team at Salmon Bay are AMAZING! She helped my wife and I get a mortgage loan during some truly unprecedented volatility in the market. Ruby is well informed, strategic, trustworthy, compassionate, smart and a fantastic advocate and communicator. We’re so lucky to have connected with her and her team and thrilled with the results!
Ruby and the whole team at Salmon Bay made our first-time home buying experience seamless and much less intimidating! I can’t say enough about their hands-on, personal approach and I appreciated the amount of time they spent educating us on all of the details of our mortgage. We shopped around to multiple lenders, both local and national, and we would 100% choose Salmon Bay every time again.
Ruby is a delight. They were very helpful and gave me options I wasn’t aware of. And their Friday update videos are quick and informative.
