Duane Lockett has served as a loan officer for 13 years, delivering expertise in mortgage loan origination from residential through construction and jumbo mortgages. He brings his experience to our Seattle, WA branch, serving his current clients and inviting new business.
Mortgages involve a lot of complexity and detail, and Duane has grown his client base through his great listening skills, attention to detail, and a reputation for getting things done. A mortgage is a process, and Duane is skilled in pulling the many inputs together to get the desired output.
Specializing in residential loans, Duane has helped many first-time homebuyers to navigate the mortgage process. On the other end of the buyer experience spectrum, he works with real estate investors with requirements for complex and jumbo loans. Going one step farther for homebuyers, Duane reviews HOA, Homeowner Association, documents for potential pitfalls and budget challenges that are not something a buyer needs to learn about after the closing.
Graduating with a B.A. degree from the University of Washington, Duane’s education and 13 years of experience as a loan officer combine to deliver superior service to his clients.
Life isn’t all work though. Duane has a variety of hobbies and interests including being an avid sci-fi/fantasy reader, backcountry skier, burgeoning Duck Dodger, and a spicy food connoisseur.
Duane Lockett was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and has lived in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood for the past 11 years.
