Rose City Mortgage is the go-to local mortgage brokerage in town for many LGBT homebuyers. Founder Renee Spears started this alternative to the big banks specifically to work with LGBT clients who had been historically discriminated against by the big lenders. Spears has also positioned Rose City Mortgage as a business that supports and gives back to the community at large. In addition to a very, very green workplace, Rose City Mortgage will donate $100 from every transaction to local non-profit organizations like Cascade AIDS Project. They are obviously doing very well, because Spears and company have now donated over $250,000!
The staff is full of top-notch queer mortgage brokers, too, like Ericka Heidrick and James Komro and Jake Planton. They can meet any of your home finance needs—from first time purchase to upsizing into a bigger home or a simple refinancing of your current loan. Take it from me, they have seen it all and done it all…and always perform spectacularly…they are ready to work with you.
