I grew up in Eastern Washington and relocated to the Vancouver-Portland area in 2006. I received my Business Administration/Finance Degree from Washington State University and began my lending career in 2005 with a large national bank. After several years of success in banking and mortgage lending, I made a strategic move to Guild in the summer of 2013 to better serve the needs of my clients. I have built my business on creating great relationships with customers and clients and I strive to create a referral and re-occurring business across all platforms. I have mentored several mortgage professionals over the past few years and continue to grow and cultivate a strong team of mortgage professionals. The Donnie Owen mortgage team is built around strong customer service, integrity, respect, collaboration, continued learning and excellence. We are currently licensed to conduct business in WA, OR, ID and CA.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family camping, surfing, playing soccer and attending Portland Timbers Soccer games.

Everyone we worked with at Guild were so helpful to us as we navigated a rather complicated purchase of our second home, our dream home. Donnie and Benjamin seemed to realize how much this home meant to us and did whatever they could to help us see our dream realized. They always kept us in the loop; there were never any surprises and we appreciated that.
Donnie's communication and knowledge throughout my client's home journey was top notch! Would highly recommend Donnie and his team to everyone searching for the perfect lender to help aid in their home buying process!
We worked with Donnie and his colleague Benjamin to procure a loan to buy a second home. Donnie and Benjamin were respectful of our wishes and our financial limits. They also did a wonderful job thinking outside of the box to help us obtain a loan that most closely met our needs. They provided weekly updates; we always knew where we were in the process and had an estimated timeline to work with. They went to bat for us when it looked like we might not procure the loan quickly enough and they moved things along as quickly as possible. We were able to close ahead of schedule and well within our budget. They even helped us navigate some unanticipated hiccups with no question. Donnie and Benjamin went out of their way for us and now we have our dream vacation home. We are so thankful for their hard work and their ingenuity!
Donnie Owen and his team at Guild Mortgage are nothing short of Wizards. They saved my deal more than a few times. They worked tirelessly overtime and brought my dream to fruition, only a few days beyond original sign date. They were supportive and very skilled at their jobs, communicating with me on a regular basis, keeping me informed. Thank you Donnie Owen Team and Guild Mortgage, l am very grateful to have been a temporary part of the team! Catt
Smooth process and easy to work with Benjamin, Donnie, and Lucas. I'm sure I can't say the same for myself but they stuck with us through the end. I really appreciate how helpful they were and how much they cared about our needs. Very quick to respond and explain anything we asked about. Knowledge and experience goes a long way. They especially understood our budget and made it work. My family and I will continue to work with Guild Mortgage in the future.
Donnie and his team were a pleasure to work with. They were always so quick to respond to any questions we had and made the home buying process less nerve wracking. I would highly recommend Donnie and his team to anyone in the market to purchase a home.
