This has been one of the smoothest transactions I’ve done in a long time. Quite refreshing.”  – Jean

 We cannot thank you enough for fighting for us to get this done.  You have been amazingly reassuring and kept both of us calm in what can be a totally stressful process. – Sarah and Dennis
I first contacted James two years ago, excited about buying my first home but completely naive to the entire mortgage lending process. He is and has been so generous, patient, kind, and wonderful as I learned about getting my finances together, my bank records, etc. James is smart and anticipated any issues I would have — so much so that we were set to jet when the time came.  I will recommend James to everyone and will definitely use him in the future! – Blair

James Komro, Loan Officer

James enjoys a challenge. “I love working with people who have talked with other lenders who tell them it can’t be done. I’m always looking for the creative solution to the problem. I treat each client with respect. And I don’t give up easily!”

After working at another mortgage company for a year, James arrived at Rose City Mortgage and realized he still had a lot to learn.  Spending day and night researching everything from basic underwriting skills to complex lending guidelines, he now prides himself on customizing the financing process to his clients’ comfort level and now many of his coworkers look to James as a resource of information.

For fun he enjoys an occasional casino run with his parents. At his favorite blackjack table, James has been heard to shout out to his mom in fun, “Hey lady, that’s my inheritance you’re spending!”  He also enjoys spending quality time riding his motorcycle and recharging himself on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta with his partner of nearly eight years. 

Known for baking the best chocolate chip cookies and making people laugh during stressful situations, this Portland Area Business Association member and avid car enthusiast loves to walk around his house singing with his black lab Sammy right by his side.  He’s an avid Judge Judy fan (“You just can’t beat free legal advice!”) and unwinds at the end of the day by catching an “I Love Lucy” episode each night before bed.
