Northwest Lending Group offers a variety of loan programs to fit your needs. Whether you’re looking to buy your first home, invest in a real estate portfolio, or refinance, our skilled mortgage team will help you find the program that best suits you.
I have 36 years experience in the mortgage industry and over 30 of those right here in Clatsop County. Experience does make a difference.
I began my career with some well known big corporate banks and then opened my own mortgage lending office in 2002.
I realized I could offer customers lower rates not being part of a big machine like that. Large lending companies often have multiple layers of upper management, which increases prices. I take the time to understand each of our client’s unique situations and guide them through their options—even the ones they didn’t originally think of. That type of agility and creative thinking comes from years of experience and a willingness to work closely with customers.
I am a native Astorian and my roots run deep. My main goal as a Loan Officer is that you are comfortable with the financing of your home. I am excited to use my 30 years of customer service experience, listening skills, and problem-solving skills to get you the best loan program whether you are purchasing or refinancing. When I am not at work, I am a wife, mom to 3 fur babies, a board member for the ADHDA, and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
With Greg as my mentor and Erika processing, I know our small and mighty team can continue to be your favorite local lending group. ~Jeany Birdeno
