Home loans

  • 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 and his team are honest, genuine and incredibly hard working. You can really tell that they care and go out of their way to make sure the lending process goes off as smooth as possible. Mark is a rare breed and you can tell he surrounds himself with a team that is just as caring & hardworking. I will never use another lender. Do yourself a favor and go with Team Aalto. I know you'll have an awesome experience. I only refer my friends and family to the best, and I'll continue to send people Marks way. Thanks Team Aalto, you guys rock!
