Our Story

For over 25 years, Absolute Mortgage has operated as a tight knit group with a singular focus – build a culture where people love to come to work, while delivering white glove service to our clients and partners. “The Absolute Experience”.   

Following a guiding set of core values, established from the outset... “Be Nice, Tell the Truth, Do Great”... the company has evolved and grown but kept a family feel.  All the while working to bring people and homes together.

Eric Bolstad - Division President

Eric has spent his life taking risks, meeting challenges head-on, and leading by example. Despite an accident in his senior year at Washington State University which left him unable to walk, he earned a degree in Business Administration with specialties in Real Estate and Finance. The first in his family to graduate college.

Embarking on his career in mortgage, Eric continued to overcome obstacles and excel professionally. Absolute Mortgage was founded in 1996 from Eric’s desire to lead a company with core values born from his life philosophy… “Be Nice, and Tell The Truth”.  Under his leadership, we have become an organization of talented, knowledgeable professionals who feel valued.  In turn, his goal is that our clients and partners leave every interaction having had “The Absolute Experience”.

Eric is a philanthropist, diehard Coug, and a live music enthusiast.

Jasen Nuetzmann - Division Executive VP

With over 25 years in the financial services industry, Jasen has a wealth of experience in sales, operations, and executive leadership.  Beginning his career in production, he originated over a quarter of a billion dollars in residential and commercial mortgages, helping hundreds of clients invest in real estate.  Under Jasen’s leadership, The Absolute Mortgage team works to differentiate themselves as Mortgage Advisors who guide their clients to reach financial goals, rather than to just close loans. 

In addition to high praise from his colleagues and peers, he was recognized by National Mortgage Professional Magazine as one of the “Top 40 Most Influential Mortgage Professionals Under 40”. Jasen joined the Absolute Leadership team in 2014, bringing a third core value to the table…”Do Great!”.

Jody joined Absolute Mortgage as an Administrative Assistant in our original Bellevue branch. As the company grew to a multi-office division, and the industry evolved in licensing and regulation, Jody’s career expanded along with it.  Always the first person to jump in, lend a hand, and forge new paths to success, she worked her way from the copy room to the board room earning the position of Division Vice President of Administration in 2017.

Jody is honored to support some of the industry’s best originators and top operations talent, and is focused on ensuring they have the tools, resources, and administrative support they need to provide first class service to our clients and referral partners. She is motivated and inspired to continuously improve the “Absolute Experience”.

Jody enjoys gardening (ask Husband Mike how much he loves to eat vegetarian!), camping, and adventuring outdoors.

Chrisa joined the Absolute Mortgage Team in April 2014, bringing a wealth of industry knowledge in sales, underwriting, and operations leadership.   Driving from the philosophy that success comes when we work smarter, not harder, Chrisa is focused on finding incremental improvements in loan processes that result in more production with greater ease.

Her greatest satisfaction comes from serving others by pouring into individuals and offering support that ranges from a check in phone call to a full deep dive of the guidelines. She strives to create work solutions and experiences that matter.

Growing up in an Italian family with 5 children, Chrisa’s mother cautioned “lies have short legs” (they can’t outrun the truth).  When Chrisa was introduced to Eric and learned of the core values at Absolute Mortgage, she knew she was home.
