Mortgage Loan Originator, Real Estate Sales Manager
NMLS # 498596
I have been in the mortgage industry since 2003. Mountain West bank has been my home for over half of my mortgage career because we share core values of being community minded. We specialize in knowing our area with both our loan product offering, but also with our LOCAL service. My current position as Real Estate Sales Manager allows me to not only continue to help people with their financial needs, but to also foster and promote the Mountain West Bank valley team within the Spokane community.
I enjoy working with first-time home buyers, people that are working to expand their investment portfolio as well as with people buying their dream 2nd home or building a house. I really enjoy working together with my clients to structure loans that make sense for them.
I have an in-depth knowledge of VA, FHA, Conventional loans including first time home buyers. I also focus on Lot & Land loans that transition to construction loans. My goal is to make the mortgage process as easy and seamless as possible, a goal shared by Mountain West Bank.
I am a Wyoming native and graduated from the University of Wyoming. After moving to Spokane, I earned my MBA at Eastern Washington University. I live in Spokane Valley with my fiancé, a US Navy Veteran. I have two children both in college. I am an active member of the community and have served as a board member of the National Association of Professional Mortgage Women since 2008. I love the Pacific Northwest and enjoy working with people that are relocating to this area.
"Nicole was extremely helpful, even before I could commit. She knew I was working with another lender but may need to switch and she was extremely responsive so that I could make the right decision."
"Everyone involved was very professional and helpful."
"Nicole Shea was awesome! She communicated and followed up on all items."
"I felt a bit overwhelmed during the interest-rate-lockdown process after getting our offer accepted on our home. Nicole provided me with several interest rate scenarios and took time to explain what everything meant during a phone call. I really appreciated her willingness to help me make sense of all the information. I felt like the decision was obvious after chatting with her, which definitely helped to ease my mind about the purchase."

"Nicole Shea was off the charts great. She answered questions promptly, but more importantly was anticipatory in answering questions and explaining the process before you thought to ask the questions. One of the smoothest processes of any kind I've experienced. Given all the moving parts of a mortgage application Nicole made it look easy. She is a real credit to your organization. Top marks! I will refer others to her."
"I wish everyone offered exceptional customer service like Nicole Shea. I will recommend her over and over again."
"Nicole was a pleasure to work with and sharp as a tack."
"Nicole Shea was amazing to work with. She made the process very easy and was very knowledgeable. It really made for a great experience. She really put our minds at ease when it could have been a very stressful process. Thanks so much Nicole!"
"Nicole has taken on two of my loans in the last three years. Her timely information and honest approach is refreshing. I considered going with another company based on a slightly lower rate. However, I was quickly reminded of some of the bait and switch tactics I have experienced in the past with other companies. In both of my transactions with your company, she delivered on everything she promised. I truly appreciate her and hope you recognize her as a valuable asset to your company."
