Our Story


Your Local Mortgage Partner

Northwest Mortgage Group, founded in 1995 by partners Bob Engelke, Larry Unger, Marty Quandt, and Jim Smith, is built on a philosophy that puts fairness and customer service above all else. The company has since grown from one small office in Portland to eight offices in the metro area: Portland, Beaverton, Lloyd Center, NW Portland, Lake Oswego, Clackamas, Newberg, and Scappoose. Northwest Mortgage Group originates loans in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska.

All four owners continue to work with clients, as well as produce and originate loans.

The In-House Difference

When you choose Northwest Mortgage Group, you’ll get much more than a traditional mortgage broker—you’ll get a full-service lending partner. Almost all our underwriting, processing, and funding of loans is done in-house, which means we offer extremely competitive interest rates and fees. It also makes the loan process more efficient for everyone involved.

Personal Client Service

The client’s interests are always our top priority. Your loan officer will take the time to fully understand your short-term and long-term goals, then find the best loan program to help achieve them. Our goal is not only to meet your immediate financing needs, but to become your lending partner for life. Whether you’re buying your first home, adding to your investment portfolio, or refinancing an existing loan, Northwest Mortgage Group would be proud to help make your dream a reality.
