About Me

Customer service, honesty, and integrity are the cornerstones of my business. I believe a mortgage should be about building relationships, and helping my customers achieve their home financing goals, not just a transaction. I take a consultative approach to the home loan process by customizing each home financing program to help customers achieve their overall financial goals - both short-term and long-term. Many loan officers can get you a loan. My mission is to get you the right loan that fits your circumstances, and to provide the service to make the process fast and hassle-free.  

With the wide variety of loan programs offered by HomeStreet Bank, our commitment to customer advocacy, and a guarantee of service that stands apart, you can be assured of a loan tailored to fit your needs, and that the process will be handled efficiently by a professional.

Contact me today, and let's get started on achieving your home financing goals.

I am also a 2012 Five Star Mortgage Professional!

Claire Koffel recommends Kara Berglund at HomeStreet Clackamas Home Loan Center

Sometimes you are lucky enough to meet a professional who is so good at her job that its hard to describe.
I was introduced to Kara in 2010 when I was buying a house in a town in Eastern Oregon. The real estate agent said that everyone insists on using Kara because she is so efficient, accessible, professional and reliable...and on top of that..she's super nice. I asked where she was located, and was told that she was 200 miles Portland. Given that most real estate agents insist on working with local professionals, that spoke volumes.
Shortly thereafter, I met Kara at her office in Portland. I could tell in a heartbeat that everything that I had been told was indeed true. Being a real estate finance professional myself, I'm able to tell when others are just ok, and when they are exceptional. I haven't met many who are exceptional. Kara is. Since then, she has been the only loan officer that I call.
Last week my husband and I closed on a new home in Bend, OR that Kara had prequalified us for a year earlier...prior to it's construction. There were a number of twists and turns along the way, and a week from the closing deadline, it looked like everything was going to fall apart. It was tenuous and say the least. But Kara remained calm and determined to work things out for us. And she did. Of course she did. We closed on time with a fabulous loan.
Even when things seem impossible, Kara will pull a rabbit out of her hat. She is awesome. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Dear HomeStreet Bank,

I just want to say thank you for the excellent service that I received with HomeStreet Bank. I'm a first time home buyer, and although I had taken a few first time home buying classes, buying a home for the first time seemed to be an impossible task.

Both Kara Berglund and Naomi Mozelle guided me through
the process with ease. They kept me on track and up to date with what documents I needed to submit and were quick to handle any changes or revisions that needed to be made.

Everything was handled efficiently and with care. I could not have asked for a better first time home buying experience. Thank you so much.

Sincerely, Fairell Griffin
