Meet Brian Meek

I have been in the mortgage industry for about 20 years and know the ins and outs of both residential and commercial lending. As a Senior Mortgage Advisor at Absolute Mortgage, a division of Finance of America LLC, I am able to operate as a direct lender, with our own local in-house processing and underwriting. When starting the home financing process, I pride myself on being honest, reputable and results oriented. My highest priority is that my clients receive the most sophisticated financial solution with exceptional service. I was born and raised in the Seattle area and currently live the Eastside with my wife. In my free time, I enjoy snow and watersports, hiking, traveling and Seahawks games.
