Best Seattle Finance Pros

  • Rand Fishkin - Solid bank. Good customer service, low costs, fair, and much less evil than the big boys.
    Yaprak DeCarmine - I've banked with BECU while living in 12 countries and 4 states. Never had a problem they couldn't resolve immediately. Their app is extremely helpful!
    Laura - Great banking services for a small business. They pretty much are a no-fee bank.
  • 751 N 75th St, Seattle
    Steve Dossick - We used Jamie for basic wills and estate planning when our babies arrived...super easy to work with and very thorough.
    Darlin Gray - Jamie at Phinney Ridge Estate Law is thoughtful and smart and really good at what she does!
  • 300 Pine St, Seattle
    Adam Tratt - Howard Choder (Taxman) is a former IRS Agent who is a fantastic accountant whether you're facing an audit or just getting your taxes done. Highly recommended.
    Steve Dossick - I’d recommend Howard Choder aka The Tax Man...former IRS agent based on Capitol Hill...works with many startup founders on their specific issues.
    Tonya Peck - We've appreciated Howard Choder's guidance, counsel, and all things taxes for 16+ years!

  • 4. Chase
    Ben Shorr - I would love to not use Chase - but their website is great (now); mortgage, direct deposit and bills are tied to an account that I've had since they were Washington Mutual. Remember that?
    Amy Barker - Madison Park! Frank the manager is great!
    Kyle Shurtleff - I've used many local and national banks in the last 2 years, Chase has what I'd consider the best tech (web + mobile) if that is your primary way of interacting with your bank.
  • 1200 Westlake Ave N 900, Seattle
    Detlef Schrempf - Long term partner for families and individuals, helping to find and define passions and goals in order to live the life envisioned

  • 9 Lake Bellevue Dr 100, Bellevue
    Omar Shahine - We have used Jennie Muckelstone twice to dismiss moving violations on the east side. She charges a flat rate and takes care of all the paperwork and representation. Far cheaper than having a 5 year insurance increase.
    Adam MacBeth - Simple, affordable, gets the job done.
    Erika Yelle - We were referred to her when our teen son got a ticket - flat rate, easy and fast! Well worth not having a hike insurance rates for a teenage driver! Passed her name on to one of my son's buddies recently.
  • Sherri Monte - As an Interior Designer at Elegant Simplicity, I could not recommend a better credit union.

    Since 2009 they have taken great care of us + handled all of our questions with the utmost professionalism.
    Brian Glaister - Verity is within walking distance of my house, is dog friendly, and doesnt have any fees or minimums. Hard to beat
    Kari O'Driscoll - Love this credit union that gives back to the community. I have business accounts there and they've always been helpful and accessible.

  • Kristen Cole - Marie is amazing! She patiently documented every single process in our business. Not only did she help us get all those details out of our heads, but she also caught many inconsistencies and bottle necks in our processes. Our catering business runs smoothly thanks to Marie's organizational eye for detail.
    erin keam - I was trying to work out what category to add Marie to - basically, she took all the business info rattling around in my head and showed me how to document it so I can train, run, manage, protect and eventually sell my business.

Sondra Firestein Second vote for Alterra Advisors. Josh Whelan, one of the co-founders has been our advisor for the last few years. The level of service he and his team offers is amazing.
Aren Kaser Chelea Lawrence at Wells Fargo is probably the best. Downtown Seattle.
Sima Kahn Agree with Sondra about Josh Whelan at Alterra Advisors!

Omar Shahine We use Chubb (had ACE before that but Chubb purchased them). Insurance companies like Chubb don't sell direct to consumer, we did ours through Marsh (marsh.com). Chubb is is different than your normal insurance as it's a high deductible policy but what you get in return is excellent coverage and a single policy that covers everything. Chub insures:

Home (inc Earthquake and Flood)
Home Valuables (doesn't count toward deductible if itemized)
Auto (includes free glass break coverage which is honestly the only insurance we've used in 9 years)
Umbrella Liability

Been a customer for 10 years and rates are consistent and service is 5 star.

When I was with Allstate our rate changes were wild. No sense to why and how they adjusted.
Omar Shahine For water shutoff off we use LeakSmart. omar.shahine.com/blog/2017/...
Adam Doppelt Hey, I've been down this road too. A few years ago I ducked into Magnolia Insurance Agency on a whim. Old school. Coincidentally, this is the closest physical business to my house. For some reason I barely noticed this place before glancing up at the sign one day. They were super nice and very competent. They switched all of our auto & home insurance to cheaper Safeco plans. Earthquake coverage is provided by Arrowhead for a few hundred bucks a year, I think. Also recommend Umbrella insurance if you don't have that yet. Similar to Omar, I was with Allstate for years but I'll never look back.

Liz Pearce Hi @amy_woidtke! I know @Vanessa and her team at Banister Advisors help clients with this. They offer healthcare navigation services, one of which is "Collaborative support in researching healthcare coverage options including private pay, Medicare, and other government programs such as Social Security and Veterans Benefits." One of their partners is also an attorney. I think they're be a good place to start, and could likely refer you out if not a good fit.
Holli Margell I just reached out to a business attorney in my network for his recommendation. Gustad Law if you'd like another resource: gustadlaw.com
