  • VA loans

    Our team loves serving the veterans in our community by providing great financing options for refinancing and purchases
  • Conventional

    Over 80% of the loans we close are either through Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac so we have a lot of experience helping our clients get great rates and terms with conventional financing options
  • FHA

    Mark Aalto started his career at FHA as an underwriter - we love the flexibility that FHA provides to help our clients purchase houses.
  • ODVA

    Many veterans and Realtors are unaware that the state of Oregon has a fantastic program for veterans unique to Oregon. Give us a call - we are experts with ODVA financing!
  • USDA

    The USDA loan is one of the very best 0 down programs out there. For purchases in rural areas with no down payment the USDA program is one of our favorites!
  • Jumbo loans

    Our team works with a variety of investors and funding sources for loans that are on the larger side. It takes a team of experts to navigate these larger loan sizes and we have the experience to help clients that are purchasing luxury homes.
  • Alternative loan products

    We understand that not everyone fits neatly into a box. For our clients that have income that is difficult to document or have credit that is still recovering we are happy to look at a variety of solutions.

Mark assisted us in securing our funds for our first home 25 years ago, and we have worked with him ever since. We have referred numerous friends and colleagues to him as well that he has assisted, always with positive feed back to us. Mark truly cares about his client's interests and takes pride in assuring that they are fully taken care of. I applaud Mark for his commitment to his clients as well as his support to the LGBTQ community. He treats everyone with respect and as if they were his own family. I would recommend Mark and his team to anyone, especially to those that may be first time buyers with many questions. He will assist you through your journey stress free!!!!

Mark and his worked diligently and effectively in processing our mortgage getting us a closing 4 days early?!?!? Yes!! EARLY!! Now this might be possible in all cases but they clearly understood the needs of the underwriters and other oversight people that they prepared us with a list of necessary docs to have available. Granted, we had been through a mortgage process before so we also were well prepared, they communicated with us every step of the way. We would not only highly recommend Mark and his team, but would absolutely use them in the future for any mortgage needs.

Mark and his team were incredible during our home buying process. Mark was available anytime we needed anything, and was always totally game to breakdown the most complicated and confusing parts of the process. He went above and beyond, working until the last minute to secure the best possible rate for us. I can't recommend Team Aalto more. If you're reading this, and on the fence about getting in touch, just do it! You won't regret it.
