I’ve been working in lending at OCCU since 2011. I believe in the credit union difference, and I’m certain we can make that difference for you. I’m very proud to be given the opportunity to help you with your goals and look forward to working with you. Wherever you are with your homebuying journey, I want you to feel how important you are to your community and us at OCCU.
My number one goal is to provide my borrower’s with a positive experience. After graduating from the University of Oregon with a major in business and a concentration on finance I started doing residential mortgages in 2005. In 2013 I started with the credit union and have never looked back. I am able to offer an array of products that other companies can’t and am proud to work for a company that puts its members first.
As a long time employee of Oregon Community Credit Union, I have had the privilege of working with many of our members. From the first time homebuyer to the experienced homeowner, I’m committed to providing education and the best mortgage solution to each and every member. With over a decade of mortgage lending experience and a personal dedication to serving with integrity.
Since 2004, I have held multiple lending roles in the credit union industry. Working with our residential borrowers here at OCCU has been very rewarding. From applying my commercial experience toward helping the self-employed to coaching first-time homebuyers through achieving their financial milestones, each individual's success impacts me and my motivation to continue helping our community prosper.
I have been in the mortgage industry for 20 years. With a great deal of experience, I know that communication is key in keeping both members and realtors updates through mortgage lending process. I especially like working with first-time homebuyers because there is nothing like seeing the joy when someone buys their first home. I love knowing I helped walk them through this process.
I have been in the lending field for almost 3 decades. I have a passion for helping first-time homebuyers and veterans. My greatest strength is in listening to the long- and short-term goals of each borrower, finding and sharing information that will help reach those goals, and then allowing the homebuyer to decide the best option for them.
I have been helping members finance loans with OCCU since 2011. The cohesiveness and extensive knowledge of our mortgage team makes working for OCCU a fantastic experience, and I want you to enjoy working with us in the same way. It is my goal to be as transparent and helpful as possible during the loan process to make your home loan a smooth and painless process. For me, there’s nothing better than helping members.
I love working with people. Although mortgages seem to consist mainly of numbers and guidelines, my true passion lies within helping you meet your goals. Whether those goals are to buy your first home or you are looking to refinance to help with your monthly budget, I’m here to make it happen. I have had the pleasure of working with the members of OCCU for four years and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and help them with whatever they need.
“Dearest Amy, thank you so very much for all your sincere help and kindness with the purchase of our lovely new home. This is indeed a dream come true! We really needed a friend and you have been the best friend we could have found. There are not enough words to express our gratitude.”
– Carolyn and Dave
“Cody Martin from OCCU called my wife and me to ask if we were still interested in applying for a refinance on our house. We had looked into it earlier but decided we weren’t in the position to pursue it at that time. We replied that we were very interested and Cody ran with it from there… Because of his help, we are now in a much better position financially and we feel very much in Cody’s debt for all that he has done for us. We clearly matter to Cody and he went the whole mile to make our refinance happen.”
– Mike and Mary
“Helen, thank you so much! My life has changed so much for the better because of you. Thanks for handing in there with me. I appreciate you and all your work on my behalf so much.”
“Jacob was a pleasure to work with on our mortgage refinance. His communication was promt, courteous, and thorough. He got back to us quickly when we had questions, always treated us with respect, and handled a complicated process elegantly. We would gladly work with him again, would recommend him to others, and are highly satisfied with his work! Thank you for making a tricky process much easier to navigate.”
