Heather McGarry Mortgage Loan Officer

With over 10 years of experience in Real Estate Lending, I have been in the business long enough to have the insight, experience & skills to help you navigate your transaction smoothly & effectively, every time.  Whether you are a first time home buyer, a savvy investor, or someone with unique financing needs, I’ll be there to guide you through the real estate lending process, every step of the way.

I became interested in the real estate profession in 2000 when my husband and I began investing in homes in North Portland. By 2003, I was hooked on housing & decided to make a career out of Real Estate Lending.  I have been named a Portland Monthly Five-Star Mortgage Professional for the 4th time this year,  2014.

My background in Economics & Education serve you well & provide you with the highest level of service and opportunities available.  As your lender, my role in the transaction is to communicate everything you need to know to feel comfortable with your decisions & to assist you in making good ones.  The Lending Industry can be a confusing place with many changes on a day-to-day basis.  It is my job to be your advocate, to stay in front of any changes that may affect your loan & to do all of that for you in a simple & paperless way so you can live your life AND close your transaction in a low-stress, timely manner.  No trees will be harmed in this process either, as I maintain a 100% paperless lending practice.

In my “free” time (ha!) I enjoy playing with my lovely 2 daughters, date night with my husband, walking in the historic park across the street from our house, listening to music, taking photographs, doing QiGong & pursuing all the outdoor activities & camping the Pac NW has to offer with the family.  I currently also manage our inner N Portland investment property portfolio as well as our vacation rental & worked with my husband to build an energy efficient ADU at our primary residence. And of course, there is always another project brewing….in a nutshell, I love all things Real Estate!
