I've spent the majority of my career in real estate financing. I have diversified experience spanning wholesale lending, private equity, commercial lending, construction loans and the remodeling arena. I love helping homeowners and prospective buyers reach their ownership goals. My hope is to be your comprehensive mortgage consultant for life.
I was born and raised in Oregon and attended the University of Montana…GO GRIZ! My degree is in Business & Finance and I also studied environmental sciences. After graduation I lived abroad for several years in the Caribbean and managed a small hotel and adjoining restaurant.
In my free time I enjoy skiing and spending time with my amazing son, Owen. He loves the outdoors as much as I do, and I hope to have him keeping up with me on the slopes very soon!

“As a first time home buyer I was very impressed with Nick as he walked us through the steps to becoming a homeowner! He has been in the business for many years and knows what he is talking about. He was able to answer any questions that came up quickly and efficiently. Nick had our best interest in mind. He made sure that we got the best financing option that was available to us. Thank you!”

“I had a great experience with Nick. As a first time home buyer I was nervous about my lack of knowledge but Nick walked me through the entire process and was excellent about communicating with me in a way that made me feel comfortable. He is friendly and a professional and I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Nick!”

“Nick was incredibly helpful throughout the entire loan process. He continued to impress us with his knowledge and communication. I spoke with him nearly every day throughout the process. He was always available to answer questions we had. We knew exactly where we stood at any given time. I would highly recommend him and plan on using him again for our financing needs.”
“Refinancing can be a bit overwhelming at times. I should know, I bought my first home in Lake Oswego in 1998 and since then have purchased two rental properties, a loft and a house, both in NW Portland. I first started working with Nick Prohaska in 2009. He helped me re-finance my loft and really, without his help I don't know whether or not I would've been able to keep it. Since then I've trusted him with my other rental property and my most my most important property, my home. Nick is very responsive, extremely knowledgeable and well organized, and I highly recommend him. You can trust him, Nick's a pro!”
