"Fast, productive, efficient and very pleasant to work with. "
"I worked with Svetlana for an investment property, she not only gave the best possible APR 4.625 when other banks are 5%+, but also made sure to advice on a 30 day lock rather than 45 day for the best possible interest. She is great at driving for dates and get things done on time. I had another issue of appraisal where my property didnt quite fit into the conventional home loan category, she worked with multiple appraisers and made her case that it is still conventional, all this i didnt know were happening and just saw the result that everything came together for my purchase. Delighted and highly recommend her for her customer commitment. "
"Our experience with Svetlana was great. She was fast, very informative and helpful, and she made our purchase smooth and easy. "
"I have worked with Svetlana for buying property and she is amazing. She has always been knowledgeable, professional, and answered our many questions. Svetlana advocated for me, and ensured I was getting the best possible deal. We were able to close as expected and without any problems. I would recommend her to other home buyers. "
"I have had several opportunities to work with Svetlana. Each time I am amazed with the effort she puts forth to get the job done, each time offering several options. She is always available, even sacrificing her person time late at night or on weekends. When a deal is on the line time counts and I rely on Svetlana. She's the best! "

"I wish it will be more then 5 stars rating, because Svetlana Vikanova exceeded all expectations with my refinancing. It was the best experience I can only ask for. I was planning to refinance for at least last two years, but the thought of the hustle was pushing my decision back over and over again. Svetlana came to my work and stayed with me until she got all the information to start the process. I went to the office only once to sign final documents and I got the best possible rate. Svetlana was fast, effective and provided best deal I only can ask for. Thank you for turning this previously stressful for me experience into an extremely positive. "
"Svetlana is very knowledgeable and responsive. I really enjoyed to work with her. The whole loan process went very quick and smoothly. I would highly recommend Svetlana to everybody who is looking for a mortgage broker. "
"Svetlana did amazing job a) explaining and giving all the numbers before purchase and b) closing the deal. She knows how to go through closing/underwriting process quickly; lots of tips and tricks; answering lots of questions and "what-if" scenarios, etc. Svetlana is also super responsive, you'll not wait her for callback, you'll not ping her for progress. "
"Svetlana helped me get my house refinanced with very unusual case. Thank you for handling it. "
"I'm so glad I used WA 1st mortgage services. My originator Svetlana Vikanova acted professionally and with a great sense of urgency. I got best bid out of 10 other bid that I had. Also we were able to close in just 2.5 weeks. Excellent service!"
"I would like to thank Svetlana on a job well done helping me and my family in obtaining the loan we needed for the purchase of our home. Svetlana did an outstanding job in closing under a tight deadline and staying within the promised budget. Having to close on time was is a crucial factor in today's aggressive market and it was a deal breaker in this transaction if not followed through. I've worked with Svetlana before on refinance during my previous home ownership and I knew that she won't fail me to deliver the same outstanding results as before for this major milestone in my life. Thank you greatly for your time, energy and hard work that you've put into your work Svetlana Vikanova! "
"This is the second refinance that Svetlana has assisted us with. She has always been knowledgeable, professional, and answered our many questions. She has been a pleasure to work with ans we would recommend her to other home owners and purchasers. "
