In today’s rapidly changing environment, it takes an entire team to deliver an exceptional mortgage experience. We are a team of like-minded professionals dedicated to helping our clients navigate the mortgage process.

We all have unique stories and our homes are an integral part of those stories. Getting a mortgage is never a one-size-fits-all experience. It involves getting to know you and what works for you, engaging in your story, and helping you to find the right financial fit.

When it comes to financing your home, now more than ever you need to partner with a mortgage professional with experience, creativity, drive & passion. We look forward to serving you!

Customer service, honesty, and integrity have been the cornerstones of my business since I entered the industry in 2003. I believe a mortgage should be about building relationships, and I enjoy taking a consultative approach to the home loan process by customizing each home financing program to help you achieve your overall financial goals - both short-term and long-term.

Early in my career, I realized the value of following through on my commitments and making sure my clients were happy. Now the majority of my business comes from repeat clients and their personal referrals. I believe in educating borrowers up front and take great pride in hearing how easy the process was for my clients.

Whether you're looking for the best finance options to buy, refinance, build, or renovate, I have the knowledge to help you make the right choices for your situation. 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.

I aim to be your trusted adviser and to serve you, your family and friends for many years to come.

Customer Testimonials

Gregory E Clouser recommends Kara Berglund at HomeStreet Clackamas Home Loan Center

I have used HomeStreet Bank and Kara a couple of times... Appreciate how quickly and efficiently she gets things done when no one in our area picked up appraisal done less than 8 weeks because we had chosen to go with HomeStreet Bank and Kara ours was done in about half the time... I have recommended many of my friends buying a home or looking to refinance to get with her ... I will continue to do so as well as in the future if we need anything at all she would be the one we go to... I would like to thank you personally for the loans that we have gotten from you the great race and the quick response anytime we call..

Fred Cribbs recommends Kara Berglund at HomeStreet Clackamas Home Loan Center

Kara and staff were great. Kara was available from start to finish. She treated us like friends, not just customers. We were able to ask questions and get a quick response. At one point, Kara was heading out to the airport, and we needed some letters to make an offer on the house. We had the letters emailed to us quickly. Kara is professional and efficient and makes the house buying/selling process a smooth transition. Her staff was the same. Always willing to answer a question or get needed paperwork to us. Home Street is lucky to have such Great people working for them. Thank You for all your help with our home buying experience. Very Respectfully, Fred and Christine

This is my 3rd time working with Kara on a mortgage and it was an overall positive experience. Kara is very knowledgeable in her profession and always takes care to answer and explain in detail which is incredibly helpful. Kara is super responsive and easily reachable always with a pleasant demeanor. Kara helps guide as needed providing all the information you need to feel confident you are making correct decisions. She is a pleasure to work with and I've been thankful to have her on my side during the lending process.
