Passion | Knowledge | Compassion
Sharing the knowledge I’ve gained over 28 years in the mortgage lending industry, my passion for teaching helps my clients navigate through the difficult home-lending process. Having a compassionate home loan team - whose focus is attention to detail - helps my clients experience a smooth & pleasant home-buying experience. I also work closely with my real estate agents by keeping an open line of communication with all parties. At the end of the day, seeing my clients in their new home is what fuels my passion.
When I am not an advisor
• Trail running in the forest-any forest!
• Hiking with my dog and hubby
• Traveling-especially to see my kiddos
• Designing our homes that my husband builds
• Wine tasting
I grew up in a small town in the San Juan King Valley, CA, the only jobs available while in high school were agriculture related. I got a job with a pesticides company where I would walk the cotton fields and catch bugs in a large net. It was a hard job (sometimes over 100 degrees). I would diligently fill out my reports for the owner and the farmer. It is what has made me so detailed today.

I was always told if you can’t say it best yourself, find someone else to say it for you …
“When my husband and I purchased our Tacoma bungalow back in 1996, we had just 3 weeks before we had to be back at our teaching jobs in Pennsylvania so we needed a very fast closing and Julie Sams got it done! Now 21 years later we needed to buy a condo for more accessibility and again had to get it done in record time. Again Julie got it done in 2 weeks! Julie was amazing keeping track of the details keeping us updated with each step and making our closing date. All along the way she was an absolute joy to work with.” B. Smaby
As a loan officer it is my responsibility to fully listen to your needs, fears and desires about purchasing a home and understanding your current financial position and future objectives. Using this information and the loan programs here at American Pacific Mortgage, I’m able to calm your concerns by finding the mortgage loan to meet your financial goal(s).
While much information can be learned, experience is the true teacher of knowledge, this is especially true in the mortgage industry. Over the past 24 years as a loan officer, I’ve learned that each home loan, whether a purchase, or a refinance, is as unique as the person who is applying. That means that I work with my team to make the loan process as easy as it can be for you. My integrity and dedication to you comes from my heart. From pre-qualification to funding, you will know exactly where your loan is in the process and we will answer any and all of your questions.
As a loan officer who has lived and worked in Gig Harbor for years, I’ve created lasting professional relationships throughout the industry. This provides you with an expanded network of professionals who will work together to reach your financial and home- owning goals. As a team, we have your interests at heart.
