Andy really helped me understand what was happening with me being a first time buyer, he took the time to explain concepts even if they wouldn't be relevant. He kept the process going forward in order to meet our needs for closing date, would absolutely work with him again.

Helped me through the process as a first time home-buyer. He was able to help out a ton in a highly contested buying area. Great to work with and always responded quickly.

Andy helped my first-time home purchase go swimmingly -- he was always communicative, reliable, and helpful every step of the way. He's a great consultant and was very easy to work with.

I originally found Andy and Element Mortgage through Zillow. I actually reached out to multiple lenders, probably 6 or 7. I’ll say that I heard back from Andy immoderately, which left a great first impression, and that responsiveness continued through the entire time we worked together. Not only did Andy find great rates, we consistently went above and beyond any expectations I had. Was always responsive, communicated every step along the way, he even called the listing agent of the home we purchased to sell me and why I would be a great fit and be approved quickly to give the seller and their agent confidence. Andy was a great facilitator the whole time. He built a great relationship with my realtor, he stayed in communication with the listing agent, got appraisal set up quickly, set up strong communication with escrow and title. Every step, 6 star service. Thank you, Andy and Element!!!

Andy was fantastic. He explained everything completely, keep us up to date on all the activities. Helped us with the forms and supported my off hours schedule. We were quite apprehensive going into this process but Andy made it a breeze. THANKS a ton Andy!

As a lender, he fought on our behalf and called all prospective Sellers to vouch for our financials. Being so meticulously formed, his pre-approval is as good as cash as can be for a financed offer. As an advocate for his clients, he does whatever it takes to ensure your needs are met, to help you reach your goals, and make sure you are satisfied with your experience. When other lenders may say “can’t,” Andy is the type to say “how” and find creative solutions to meet his clients needs. As an active duty military family, we fully trusted Andy to be our lender from across the country. 100% virtual experience. His response time was always impeccable, and he made more time for his clients than I’ve ever seen any lender make. Even on holidays! Out of all the lenders we have used in our multiple real estate transactions, Andy Duckworth is the only lender that has made such an impression on us. Owning 10+ rental properties, the paperwork involved in issuing a pre-approval and making it through underwriting is no easy task for a lender to take on. Andy made it easy and efficient. He was never the “clog in the machine” as lenders often are. I was always struggling to keep us with his fast paced nature—the attribute that is exactly needed in his line of work. That is why he is a top performer in his field—his strengths and his profession are perfectly in line. An on point numbers guy, he is sharp and knows his stuff. Deadline oriented, he was always the first to get the job done. As a person, he’s the type of guy you would have a beer with. As a lender, he is top notch. Andrew and Vivian, Puyallup Buyers

Andy is so great and efficient. We found him on Zillow and he helped us so much to buy our first investment property. If we need any help, he is always there. He recommended his great partner agent to us, and also helped us find the lowest home insurance. Absolutely, I will recommend him to my friends.

This is our second refinance going through Andy. We were eligible to drop our PMI to lower our payments and Andy helped us get locked in at an even lower rate than we already had! He is always on top of his game and working with us to get everything completed quickly. I definitely recommend working with him!
