As a first-time homebuyer - I was apprehensive about finding the right loan broker as it's a critical part of the process. Eric was one of a few referrals provided to me and I am glad I ended up choosing to work with him.Eric was extremely responsive throughout the entire process - providing me updates, guidance and answering all questions I had along the way. He was able to offer more competitive rates than the other lenders I was referred to and has a clean document management system to make sure information is easily accessible.I would not hesitate to recommend Eric.

My wife and I highly recommend Eric at the Portland Loan Team. We initially contacted Eric during Spring 2022 for a consultation as we searched for a new home. We paused our search due to the wild bidding wars and he was very understanding with zero pressure or pushing exotic financing options.Fast forward to late summer 2022 and we went under contact for a house with quick close (<30 days). Eric was invaluable in ensuring a successful and on-schedule purchase/close. In a fast moving close window with volatile rates, Eric was able to obtain an interest rate MUCH LOWER than other local and national lenders. Closing costs with Eric were also MUCH LOWER than other local and national lenders. Lastly, Eric's communication throughout the close process was indispensable. He always kept our real estate agent and us informed on where in the loan/close process we were.We can not imagine a better lender experience than Eric. If you have financing needs he's your guy.

We worked with Eric recently to find the right mortgage for our first home. I had originally started chatting with Chase, but found they were often unavailable or moved too slowly. Eric was incredibly helpful; answering questions or educating us on the ins and outs of mortgages. He was very organized, and kept things moving forward quickly. We were able to close almost a month earlier than anticipated! We'd definitely work with Eric again.

Eric was incredibly helpful as we went through the process of getting both of our mortgages set up - we've gone with him for our last two homes. He has an excellent and convenient process set up for providing necessary documents and gives simple, easy to understand explanations for anything you can imagine. He also gives great advice. If we decide to buy another home, he will be our go-to once more. Thank you Eric!

Eric was a great partner in our home purchase. He helped us pay down debt in order to get a better rate. He listed action items in an easy-to-follow way. He walked us through what we needed to focus on and let us know what to expect throughout the process. Great person to have on your team!

Eric Dunlap was so helpful from start to finish with our loan process. He took time to explain everything we needed help with understanding. I would recommend Eric to anyone looking to buy or refinance a home.

Eric is an excellent independent home loan lender local to the Portland metro market. We found Eric through a recommendation from our relator (Alison Derse, Hasson Group) and he lived up to his recommendation. Eric was great to work with, quick to respond, got us a great rate, and made the process of securing our loan easy. Not only that, but Eric was able to shorten our loan funding timeline from the standard 30 days to 20, making our offer more competitive, which among other things, helped us get the house we wanted!I would recommend Eric as a lender to anyone buying in the Portland market, you can't find a better person to help you secure your new house.

Eric was instrumental in helping me obtain a mortgage refinance that met my needs. He clarified and simplified the complex, detailed paperwork for me. Every step of the way, he was readily available, listened to my concerns and questions, and presented it in a manner that was understandable to me. I highly recommend Eric if you are looking for an initial mortgage or refinance.

Eric came highly recommended by our real estate agent and we're so happy to have placed our trust in him to guide us through the process of purchasing our first home. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during what can sometimes be a complex and stressful time period (particularly given the state of the marketplace right now!) He was easy to get a hold of, quick to respond, and always willing to explain details and scenarios in a way that we could understand. Finally, his fast closing period helped us compete with cash offers. Very highly recommended.

Eric is so helpful. He's very patient with folks like me who are busy and don't always get to things as quickly as possible. His gentle reminders are just what I needed to get my recent refi done. Eric has helped me with multiple mortgages, and I trust him completely.

Eric easy to work with but more importantly, very prompt. In a highly competitive market, it was good to know Eric was available anytime. We were able to get a pre-approval letter written up and offer placed in 24 hrs. Thanks so much for a speedy close!!

I don't even know where to start. The housing market has been crazy and it's been very competitive. I found Eric on Yelp and saw all the positive reviews and my husband and I just gave him a call. He was super nice and clear about what he does, how he does it, what he needs and what should we expect. He was patient with all of our questions, and always available to reach out. It honestly felt like a family friend is helping us out. He never pressured us into anything, he would express his ideas and suggestions and let us choose. He gave us an estimate on how long each process will take and his estimations were correct. Eric was constantly in touch with our agent and some details were just solved. He was meticulous and triple checked every detail. I would highly recommend him and his services.

Very responsive and great at explaining to loan process to new buyers! Eric came highly recommended by our realtor, and I am so glad we took her up on that recommendation. Eric met with us several times throughout the process and took time to explain to us how all of it works and what we should expect. Whenever we had questions or needed something from him, he was always very fast in responding.Highly recommend.

Rodrigo was an amazing partner in our home buying experience. He answered all of our questions with patience and helped enormously when our appraisal didn't come back as expected. I have already recommended him to a few friends and will definitely use him again when we buy our next house.

Eric was recommended to us by a trusted friend after we had spoken to several loan brokers who left us underwhelmed. Eric flipped our experience and was wonderful to work with. He had great refinancing options for us and helped us move through the process with ease. It was by far the least stressful, most convenient, and trusting experience we've had. We know we ended up in a great position and will engage with Eric moving forward for all of our financing needs. Highly recommended

We worked with Rodrigo for our first home purchase and I would recommend him to anyone! He was extremely knowledgeable and responsive and was happy to answer all of our questions as we navigated this process for the first time. We called multiple lenders before getting pre-approved and Rodrigo stood out to us as the clear choice.

We were looking for refinancing options for our home and Eric was recommended to us by our financial advisor. We contacted several other mortgage brokers as well and in the end decided for Eric. The fact that he was just a quick phone call away to answer all our questions, super easy to work with and offered the best rate by far, made him our obvious choice. The entire process was very efficient and quick - we ended up closing the loan within two weeks of initiation, which was almost three weeks earlier than estimated. Would definitely work with him again!

I echo the other positive reviews here about Eric and his services. I've been working with Eric the last month or so on my house refinance. Eric's rate were better than I could find elsewhere and his service, professionalism and ease to work with, were exceptional. I would strongly recommend Eric to anyone looking for mortgage services and will use his services in the future if/when needed. Thank you for your help!

Rodrigo was fast, thorough, and easy to work with. He talked us through the process, was great at explaining the details, and he helped us get exactly the type of loan we were looking for with an excellent rate. He handled all the details and made things as easy as possible on our end. Our transaction went smoothly and very quickly! I'm so glad we went with Rodrigo and would absolutely do it again.

Eric was recommended to us by a friend who also bought their first home with him and we couldn't be happier to have been able to work with him. Eric is incredibly fast, reliable, and always helps out with answers to any questions. He definitely helped ease the stress of buying our first home.

Eric came highly recommended to us by a friend and was a joy to work with. He is very knowledgeable and responsive, and took the time to educate us on all of our options so that we made the best choice. We have now used him both for a refinance and home purchase and would gladly work with him again.

Eric Dunlap was recommended by my real estate agent, I had already been speaking to my credit union about mortgage products, but on the phone we really hit it off. I needed not just a loan but some deeper advice about investments in real estate and how those future loan products could shape my families future. Covid had hit us hard and Eric created a plan to get us a better rate. Then the listing party wanted a 90 day escrow, to avoid capital gains on a flip, Eric was there, as counsel and as agent, and my wife and I both felt he had out best interest in mind. Then, I had an opportunity to switch jobs, and Eric adapted, spoke to the underwriter, got me cleared, and put me at ease, because of the length of the escrow we had time to adapt and in the end I was able to pick the product I needed for the short and long term conditions. I will choose Eric again, and recommend his services to anyone I know who is looking for a mortgage. Always quick to return calls, great to document changes and needs, he was there through the entire process, not his assistant, but him as a human ready to pick up the phone and answer the most silly question my wife and I could muster.

My wife and I just recently completed a re-fi with Eric and we both were very pleased with the whole experience. Eric guided us in the right direction, made it very clear what current vs future costs looked like and was always accurate and honest about all fees and pricing. Overall it was a very quick and painless experience. I would easily recommend him to others.

Eric was incredibly helpful in securing financing and guiding us through our first homebuying experience. He was super organized, prompt and always was happy to answer any questions. During the closing period Eric was also extremely helpful and fast rewriting documents when we received seller concessions and ensured that we maximized their value.Most importantly, we closed with a better rate than any other broker we spoke with quoted us.

We just wrapped up a refinance in record speed with Eric and the Portland Loan Team. Eric's responsiveness and professionalism was incredible. It was less than 15 minutes after I sent my inquiry email that Eric called me back and got the ball rolling. We had the vast majority of the paperwork done less than 4 hours later. Eric was patient with my many questions and is clearly a master of his craft. He's earned my future business and referrals to anyone I know in the market for a mortgage.

We purchased our house during the COVID-19 pandemic time. While we were cheering over a bottle of wine to celebrate, there is a list of people we want to thank, and Eric Dunlap is among the top three. We reached out to three mortgage brokers at the beginning of our house hunting, and we made a relatively quick decision to go with Eric for a few reasons: He replied to our initial inquiry within a few hours – responsiveness checked. He provided a detailed list of documents we need to submit with an online drop box option – efficiency checked. He was always available via email or phone calls when we have questions or in need of clarification of his questions – easy to work with checked. He made sure someone was available to us when he needed to go away for a few days – professionalism checked. Last but not the least, he locked an interest rate that we were extremely satisfied with and our loan was closed smoothly and timely – competitiveness checked. We want to take this opportunity to express our great appreciation towards Eric, and we will recommend him to families and friends.

He is professional, takes the time to educate you on your options, does so with the highest of integrity, and is very thorough.

We were referred to Eric by our realtor and we could not have been more pleased with him! He is incredibly responsive, professional, and was always willing to answer our questions! As first time homebuyers he was a great comfort to us and helped ease us along all the way through closing; and of course secured us a fantastic rate!

Eric was amazing. I already had pre-approval through a big .com loan reseller and reached out to him on the recommendation of my buying agent and he blew me away. Eric got me an incredible rate, was super responsive, answered all of my questions, and even went out of his way to use every last cent of seller credit to buy points without even being asked.

Eric helped us with both our refi and the purchase of a second house. We were working on a very short deadline and Eric got it done for us! He promised us a fast close, and delivered 100%. His fast close ability added much needed value to our offers in this competitive market. Eric was always available to us, answering all the important and dumb questions we had with clarity. Financing for a home is very confusing and scary to me, and Eric made the whole process understandable. I couldn’t recommend him enough!!!

Rodrigo was excellent! Great communication, very responsive, and overall a pleasure to work with. The loan/home-buying process can feel complex at times and even a bit confusing, but Rodrigo was great at simplifying and explaining things thoroughly and kindly in an easy-to-understand way. He also guided us and helped us make the best, most informed decisions that insured we were maximizing our ROI and moving forward in ways that made the most sense for our situation. Highly recommended.

We were referred to Eric and Portland Loan Team for the refinancing of our home. From the very first phone call, Eric was “on top of it” in every sense. He first listened to what we were looking to accomplish with a refi and asked very good questions. From there, he took over and ran the show. He provided options and recommendations in a matter of hours. By the end of the day, we had our rate locked and were moving ahead. Eric communicated exactly what he needed from us and the process/steps we should anticipate in the weeks ahead. Everything from the first call to our closing went as planned.We have purchased and refinanced several homes in the past. Eric was leaps and bounds above the rest. Very highly recommended.

I received Eric's information and was told he was the best in the business and that we needed to call him! I can see why he came with such rave reviews. He made the refinancing process very easy.

It would be hard to overstate how unexcited I was about dealing with the financial side of buying a new home. I was very intimidated by the complexity of it all: the mortgage-specific vocabulary, the percentages, the enormous amounts of money.I could not have asked for a better mortgage broker to guide me through this process! Eric's knowledge of all the ins and outs was clear from the beginning. For me, what was most helpful was the fact that he always was patient and kind about the fact that I had no idea what I was doing. He always answered my questions as though they were great questions that I was asking for the first time. When I was slow getting documents to him, his was persistent but patient.And I never had trouble getting in touch with Eric. When he was not available to talk, he would send a message letting me know he'd get right back to me.I highly recommend working with Eric and Portland Loan Team for your next home purchase!

Rodrigo has been incredibly helpful to work with! I recommend him highly!! He has helped us buy and refinance several homes. He's always willing and ready to help find the right product, terms, and rate for our projects and is constantly available for our questions and comments. During our most recent refinance, Rodrigo was even more impressive in his willingness to change course several times on our project and find us a solution that works really well for us. Thank you Rodrigo for all your help over the years!!

Rodrigo Hulse at peak mortgage has been the absolute best to work with. He has helped us over the years with a refinance and most recently with a new mortgage. Not only is Rodrigo and his team very responsive he is low pressure. Rodrigo has very wise advice regarding what makes sense financially for his clients. he will present any and all options you are interested in, then guides you in a safe direction. Ultimately he educates his clients in language that is understandable, making the process absolutely effortless. As an aside I recently called him up looking for financial advice regarding a product he was not able to offer and he called me back to walk thru the options and the process and helped me come to better understanding of what I was looking at. Above and beyond Rodrigo! Thank you!

Rodrigo was extremely helpful when I got my first mortgage. Unlike the other finance people I attempted to work with, Rodrigo provided me with an app for my phone that would generate appropriate approvals in real time based on information I input. That really reduced the stress and anxiety, because I had a resource at my fingertips to help determine what would work and what wouldn't.Rodrigo also made sure I got the best rates possible and that everything went smoothly. I had a lot of questions and was not familiar with all the terms, and he was consistently patient and provided excellent explanations.Finally, after everything was done and I'd been in my house for some time, Rodrigo reached out to me when it was favorable to refinance in my situation.I can very definitely provide Rodrigo with 5 stars, and would give more if it was possible!

I just got my fourth mortgage and I can say that it was easier and more efficient to work with Rodrigo than anyone else I have worked with. We were trying to get into a school district in the heart of Portland in the middle of the housing boom, and it was tough. It seemed like we could hardly afford a cardboard box under a bridge in this area. But if we failed, my kid couldn't go to the immersion kindergarten he had gotten into via lottery. The stakes were high! Rodrigo had the tools we needed to figure things out though. We found a diamond in the rough, and are so happy now. I really don't think things would have worked out so well for us without Rodrigo.

Rodrigo and his team at Peak Mortgage were a joy to work with at each step of the way during our housing search, purchase, and close. He was always pleasant to talk to and answered every one of our questions patiently and thoroughly. The Peak Mortgage team acted fast and always clearly communicated what they needed from us and when they needed it by. I would highly recommend working with Rodrigo and Peak Mortgage.

As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what to expect, but Rodrigo made things very easy in a competitive market. He was so quick to respond to any inquiries, and made it possible for me to close early.
