Company Values

Our Courtyard

We have 5 heated and well-lighted houses at our courtyard to view, featuring both KIT Homebuilders West (3) and Palm Harbor Homes (2) Our motto here is “Informed by an expert, not pushed by a salesman,” so you don’t have any worries of being disrespected or abruptly “sold” something you don’t want or need. I won’t allow it. We are listeners and a solution oriented company.

Home Financing

Washington Home Center is not a lender, our main focus is building your shelter. However, in addition to all other lenders we highly recommend for you to avail yourself of for a good loan, we also know of lenders that can assist you in getting the best possible interest rate in the history of interest rates given.

Customer Service

This is where we shine above our competition. Service after the sale is done, after the money is in the bank and we are working on our newest customers, we don’t forget you. We stay in touch fulfilling our every written obligation to you. We have an A+ with the BBB too.
