About Carl Self

Carl Self is first and foremost a proud father to Jordan and Alexis, but he is also a Senior Mortgage Originator licensed in the state of Washington and Oregon since 1989. He started out part-time while working as an insurance agent for Pacific Cliffs Financial, and soon learned that his true passion is helping people and he found a way to do just that with mortgages.

Having fallen in love with the mortgage industry almost at first sight. Carl spent time reading and obtaining all of the information available to better serve his clients and the people who respected and trusted him to help them with their home mortgage and real estate needs. The old axiom that knowledge is power when applied proved true, and over the last 20+ years, Carl has taken pride in always being ahead of the curve regarding industry changes, available loan programs, and how to best use what he has learned to get clients approved for the right mortgage loan to meet their needs. Carl is a constant student, seeking to learn all he can . . . and there is always more to know.

Carl has also taken every opportunity to plug into the technology side of the industry since that has been the direction of all modern things. He is grateful to possess a considerable technological savvy, as it has served him well and made him a stronger asset to his clients and partners.

Carl’s extensive business plan for the future instills in him a focus on people first, last, and always – he finds that’s an element sometimes missing in the client-lender relationship. Carl has a powerful vision he is pursuing for the future that includes giving back to his local community and helping others as often as he can. Within his business, the main goal is to serve the needs of his clients in their journey toward homeownership and retirement. Beyond the business, Carl’s goal is to serve the needs of those in his local community whose needs are greatest. This includes projects such as the Back to School Backpack and School Supplies Drive, with a goal to provide 1,000 backpacks with complete school supplies to one of the poorest areas in Snohomish County. It also includes an annual Christmas Toy and Clothing Drive for the Salvation Army and Goodwill, donating to families less fortunate during the holiday season. Carl also has a strong desire to see those around him succeed and find their passion. He focuses this into a local Mastermind for Success group, meeting monthly to share ideas that work and to brainstorm new ideas to achieve happiness, comfort, and success.

If Carl can be of service in any way – for home mortgage advice, an invitation to the Mastermind classes, or as a conduit to one of his charitable programs – please do not hesitate to contact him.

Client Testimonials

Completed transaction in November 2018 in Tacoma, WA. Carl went above his responsibilities to secure this loan and home. Communication was great! We even closed earlier than originally planned. I’ll suggest Carl to anybody especially my friends.

- Botuchis

Completed transaction in August 2018 in Kenmore, WA. Carl answered all our questions and presented all our available options. Made the whole process quick and easy.

- Patricia V.

Completed transaction in September 2018 in Cle Elum, WA. Carl was very willing to communicate and help with any and all questions that I had, and was very knowledgeable about the buying process. Even though it seemed to me that Carl was quite popular at any given moment and had a few different files to deal with, he always took time to make me aware of what was needed and how to make it happen. He would even drive out of his way to come and give me the things that I needed to proceed.

- Dustin C.

Completed transaction in August 2018 Prompt, informative, knowledgeable, clear & concise. Listened to my needs and accommodated accordingly. Went that extra mile when all parties needed to close within a very tight time frame. Excellent service. Would HIGHLY recommend and would have no hesitation in using Carls services again should the need arise.

Carl Self Fairway Mortgage Carl provided us with excellent customer service during our refinance. We were amazed that we started the process on Feb. 8th signed on Feb. 24 and was funded on Feb. 26. Along the way we had his team as our support to make sure that the transaction went smoothly and all questions were answered in a timely manner. It has been the best experience doing a refinance (both of our homes) we have had and it is all thanks to Carl and your team .
