Rose City Mortgage

Our Story

Welcome to Rose City Mortgage! We’re a socially responsible Mortgage Banker from Portland, Oregon. We opened our doors in 1999 with a desire to do business in a different way. Our mission, to improve all we come in contact with, has resulted in happier employees that value service and relationship over volume and profit. Being an independent banker allows us to work with many lenders to always get you the best deal. We work for you.

The unique way we do business has been recognized by others too. We’re honored to be named both the 2016 #1 Green Company in Oregon and the 2012 #1 Small Company to work for by Oregon Business Magazine. 

Our Culture
How you
will be

At Rose City Mortgage, we recognize that business plays a powerful role in our society.  Businesses can either enhance community or destroy it.  We strive to have a positive impact on our world and to share our prosperity with those around us.

Rose City Mortgage is an Upstream company. We take sustainability seriously. Our office in Old Town Portland is LEED Gold certified. We recycle everything, including composting our kitchen scraps. We support other local business and the environment by purchasing locally.  Loan files are handled electronically to reduce paper consumption. Our office is cleaned with non-toxic cleaning products and we even flush our toilets with rain water.


We prove that businesses can make a profit while bettering our world. It’s simple, yet revoluntionary.

Early on, Renee knew she wanted to support our community. But with a start-up business, she didn’t want to commit to more than she could afford.That’s when she decided to donate $100 to community organizations for every loan closed. So far, Rose City’s donations have totaled over $400,000. Please follow the links to more information about the individual non-profits.

We are thankful for our abundance and want to share it with our employees and clients.

Our People

At Rose City we know that our employees are our greatest asset. We also know that people work their best when they are in charge of their work lives. Our employees set their own hours, are paid higher than industry standards and have excellent benefits. We also encourage our employees to make time out of the office to spend with their families, volunteering or doing things they enjoy. In the end, this benefits all of us.

Our great work environment attracts and keeps only the best and most experienced loan officers in Portland.
