Eric helped me refinance in August and he was a dream to work with! Super responsive and worked fast to get me locked in to a great rate. Much appreciated!

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.

We’ve worked with Rodrigo twice now; our mortgage for our first home, and a refinance. He has been incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful on all fronts. All of this during covid too! He clearly has the experience and resources to navigate any obstacles in the process.

Eric Dunlap is hands down the mortgage representative you want to work with in all market environments, but especially during this active market! He is professional, takes the time to educate you on your options, does so with the highest of integrity, and is very thorough. We have enjoyed working with him for years now and would highly recommend him!

As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked to work with a better lender. Rodrigo was extremely professional and knowledgeable as he walked us through every step of the process. He worked tirelessly to get us to the finish line and I could not be more grateful. If you are considering buying a house you should absolutely use Rodrigo as your lender!!

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.

I recently worked with Eric on a refinance. Eric had the best rates and costs compared to other estimates I received. The whole process from start to finish was smooth and efficient. Eric answered all my questions in a timely manner and I was always in the loop of the status of my loan. I would highly recommend Eric!

Eric was helpful, easy to work with and incredibly knowledgeable. He answered all our questions (big and small) and helped us understand all of our options. I’ve worked with other mortgage brokers in the past but none have provided the same support and customer service that Eric did. I highly recommend him!

Eric was a big help in my home search and eventual cash out refi of my home. I highly recommend his services, particularly if you need someone who is very responsive and will also take the time to explain and educate you on the various aspects of mortgages.

Eric has helped us with financing 3 different homes now. He is absolutely amazing with finding the best loan with the low interest rates and fees. I highly recommend his services and I will continue to hire him in the future. Thank you Eric for everything! You are truly a great person and always pleasure to work with.

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.

Eric and the Portland Loan Team helped me fund my home purchase in Portland, and were very professional and helpful throughout. He provided excellent advice and walked us through all the details of the loan patiently and thoroughly.

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 am very happy with my refinance through Eric! He is very responsive, took a lot of time answering my questions, called me to lock in a rate when the rates were very low, and made the refinance process smooth and easy. I highly recommend Eric!

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. He let us know where we were at in the process and if we needed to complete anything we had missed. The process was smooth and stress free! Thank you Eric for all of your help!

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!

Eric is excellent! I have used him for 3 different transactions over the years and he has always been great. He easily explains complicated financial matters in terms that anyone can understand. He is incredibly patient and gracious. Our last transaction was really complicated and he continually went above and beyond to answer our seemingly never-ending questions and worked hard to make sure we got the best deal.

I'm not normally a review writer, but for Eric and PDX Loan Team, I've got to give props! Over the years We've turned to Eric to help us for new mortgages and also Refinances. Each time has been fantastic, always delivering on the numbers that he has quoted. His is a voice I've come to trust in a very noisy industry. Thanks Eric.
Matt Thomas

I have know Eric personally and professionally for many years and can say with confidence that he performs at a very high level in everything he does. I recently refinanced in the midst of COVID and the process was challenging with guidelines and requirements changing daily. I am certain I would have given up without Eric pushing through and going above and beyond to make sure I got the best rate when we finally closed. He's a seasoned professional that will make sure you are well taken care of.

I am a transaction coordinator with a successful real estate team and we do a lot of business with Rodrigo. He has been fun, professional and easy to work with every step of the way. He always responds promptly to any questions or concerns that we may have & puts forth the extra effort to take great care of his customers. He would be my first choice to recommend to anyone looking for an awesome lender in the PDX area!

Hands Down, The best Mortgage Broker in town. If you want honest, consistent, great service and top notch communication, then call Rodrigo Hulse. As a Realtor in Portland, I refer all my clients to Rodrigo at the Portland Loan Team and he never disappoints. When it was time for my wife and I to buy a new home, there was no other choice for us.

I emailed Eric recently because I heard that rates might be low and I wanted to know about refinancing. We discussed rates and what would make it worth refinancing. The rates weren't quite low enough when we first spoke, but he had me fill out paperwork anyways so we could lock in a rate at any point when they did drop enough. This was exceedingly helpful and got me a great rate on my refinance. Everything went quickly and smoothly with Eric. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Eric is responsive, receptive, realistic and ready to help. When I saw interest rates drop - March 2020 - I asked him for my ReFi options. He immediately (!) gave me three scenarios. My financial planner said, "Go! Any of these is a great deal for you." I closed in the beginning of April.Eric, arranged everything - home inspection, mobile notary, lender, paperwork collection, all during a crazy time when banks were overloaded with demand. Communication and execution were flawless.I couldn't be happier. Proof - I've recommended him to five friends. They (and YOU!) couldn't be in better, more professional, more personable, more helpful hands than with Eric.

After talking with a handful of brokers we decided to work with Eric. He was so responsive to any questions we had and his rates were unbeatable. He got us our pre approval documentation within minutes of reaching out to him. Eric went the extra step and was willing to meet with us in person to go over rates and answer questions. He even took the time to come to our signing! We are definitely recommending Eric to our friends and family.

Eric is our son so we have known him for a long time. Eric has handled all of our property loans. He is scrupulously honest, hard working, considerate, and devoted to providing quality results for his clients. He is the sort of man every parent hopes their child will grow up to be.We were considering refinaning our home in order to access some of the equity we have built up over the years. Eric looked at our situation and suggested that we consider a reverse mortgage. He explained all of our options and walked us through the process. We could not be more satisfied with the result. We know that you will be gratified with your experience as well.

Rodrigo was awesome to work with - professional, trustworthy and patient. He is extremely responsive and always there to answer any questions. Furthermore, I was able to rely on him for very a competitive rate. I am confident you will find Rodrigo’s expertise as a value to your family or business. Many thanks for not just being a lender, but a trusted advisor!

I had a lot of anxiety about financing since my purchase was clearly a unique and nuanced situation. Eric’s experience and professionalism was clear from the beginning and the emotional roller-coaster I was expecting turned out to be a pleasant experience.I never felt like we were out of options with Eric. He seemed to always have several options ready for any situation. He took the time to explain things to me when I needed but otherwise continually worked and kept me up to date if I was busy.I can’t recommend Eric enough. He is my go to for any future loans that I will need.

I've worked with Eric twice now and have had great experiences. The first time, I actually switched brokers to him because he was able to get me a first-time homebuyer's tax credit. It made a huge difference. I just worked with Eric again, and he was – as usual – very accessible via phone and email, always willing to explain complicated issues, very knowledgeable and so, so on top of it. Eric will ensure that your loan goes through as quickly and as painlessly as possible. Thank you Eric!

We recently bought our first home with Eric's help and could not have been happier with his services. The home-buying process can be overwhelming at times, but Eric had our back at all times and did a great job communicating information and helping us make key decisions. His commitment to client service is evident, as he was available by phone, text or email whenever we needed him. We hope to be in our current home for a while, but if that were to change we would definitely use Eric again!

I have worked with Eric twice and each time was a great experience! Eric is pro-active in all aspects of real estate financing. He provides excellent advice, and secures financing that works and is affordable. Eric was responsive and always available for questions and/or concerns and made sure that we were ready for closing without issue. He is friendly and always has his clients best interest in mind and I felt much better about my financing and the entire purchase as a whole while working with him. I will definitely be working with him again and he comes highly recommended!

Well, what can I say? Eric is stellar. He has helped me with two mortgages and two re-finances and they were seamless. I was going through a tough time in my personal life and he want above and beyond. As a realtor I am very discerning about who I refer. My clients LOVE Eric. His approach is very holistic and he wants to help people reach their goals. He is a great human and a fantastic broker.

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.
