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!

Senior Loan Officer


NMLS ID# 716319

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

Christina G, Teacher

Christina G recommends Kara Berglund at HomeStreet Vancouver Home Loan Center

We worked with Kara when purchasing our first home, refinancing, and now purchasing our 2nd home. Each transaction has been smooth and her communication is appropriate- not too much, not too little. I'd highly recommend her.

Kara did an outstanding job explaining the construction loan process at HomeStreet Bank. She was always very prompt in her responses and provided superb customer service. She always kept us apprised of the status of our loan packet. Kara answered all of our questions and she worked with us throughout the entire process. She is a true professional and we will recommend Kara to others who have questions about building or buying a home.

Gordon and Christina Gay recommend Kara Berglund at HomeStreet Vancouver Home Loan Center

This is the second home purchase that Kara has assisted us with. She always makes sure that we are thoroughly informed. Her attention to detail is second to none. Purchasing a home is nerve racking and you should work with someone who treats you like family and makes the process as smooth as possible. When we have another purchase in mind there will be no other loan officer we will choose. Kara is the best at what she does.
