I’ve been in Oregon since 2006 and have been drawn to the Pacific Northwest since I was in my youth. I love all things about the mountains. Most often, you’ll find me rock climbing at my home crag of Smith Rock. However, I’ve been known to travel the world to experience different climbing destinations. I also love to trail run, ski and hike. I’m a true lover of spicy foods and have the nickname: Chili Pepper. My favorite rest day activity is trying a new recipe in the kitchen and wowing my family and friends with delicious foods. I’ll (typically) let them add in their own spice.
As a mortgage lender since 2007, one of my biggest compliments surrounding my work is my level of communication. In the beginning, I’ll explain how the process works and help you understand all the programs that you can choose from. If you’ve got a tricky scenario, then I’ll figure it out. I love a good brain twister. When I submit your loan, I’ll keep you (and your realtor) up to date throughout the process. I’ll set timely expectations along the way so that we won’t miss important timelines. I enjoy offering the possibility of closing early because the loan process has been so efficient. I love to hear from my first-time homebuyers, “You made a seemingly difficult process easy.” I’m excited to earn your trust and help you find your dream home! I’ve got you covered whether that be a new primary residence, a second home, or an investment property.
Let’s find the right home loan for you
We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.
Kristen made the whole process so easy and clear. She would be timely in contact, even in off hours when it wasn’t expected. She also developed videos of herself to explain certain parts of the process, which was a nice touch.
Kristen couldn't have been more efficient, patient, and thorough. She was called in to help us lock in a rate, submit mortgage application paperwork, and secure our home loan. Kristen was like The Wolf in Pulp Fiction; no BS, no wasted time or actions, just results. I would recommend working with Kristen to anyone!
I'd highly recommend Kristen Burke for your mortgage needs! She helped me find a loan that allowed me to purchase my dream home that other lenders did not offer. Kristen has great communication. She is available when you need to put in an offer on a home quickly in this crazy market. I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Kristen. I will be referring my friends and family to her!
Kristen is an amazing loan officer. She is communicative, pro active, and totally on top of things. She is always one step ahead of any potential delays, which ends up meaning she always works things out to close on time, or early!
