At Evergreen Home Loans, we are passionate about helping people find their dream home. In 1987, Evergreen’s President Don Burton left his real estate job and set out to transform the mortgage business with a focus on removing long delays and last-minute surprises from the process. Now 30 years later, Evergreen has grown from one office in West Seattle to more than 56 branch locations and 758 associates (employees) in six states. But what has remained the same, is a vision to change the world one relationship at a time.
We’re proud that our associates embrace this vision and apply it to their own career and personal success. This empowers them to do everything they can to make sure they can deliver on time and as promised®. It allows them to assist customers with the ultimate purchase, securing the joy of homeownership. This ripple effect has the power to change a life, a community and ultimately the world in some way.
To celebrate 30 years of growth and 30 years of home, our team of associates, business partners and friends gathered at the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle to celebrate. Attendees explored the museum and danced the evening away! We all gathered to not only celebrate our past, but to celebrate and look forward to the future. As Don Burton often says, “we have a 1,000 year plan for Evergreen.” That’s something that our associates believe in and we’re already starting down the path of providing homeownership for our customers for the next 1,000 years.
We’re so proud of our history at Evergreen Home Loans and all our customers, associates and business partners that are a part of our success. To learn more about our history over time or to listen to Don and our as
