Hello and thanks for stopping by. I'm Karen, and I'm a Senior Loan Consultant with Valley Mortgage Group. We are a small state chartered bank, a division of Willamette Valley Bank. I've been in the lending industry for over 16 years and I'm very proud of the relationships I've built. From Realtors, to Escrow and Title folks, to the core of my business, my clients, I'm proud that not only have I developed some great working relationships with so many people, but so many have truly turned into lasting friendships. I work with integrity and honesty and always have my clients best interest in mind. There truly have been times when clients have contacted me to refinance, and after analyzing numbers, have felt best in suggesting they do not proceed with a refinance, as the numbers simply did not make sense over the long run. I believe treating that person fairly and honesty will only have lasting long term positive effects. I've always said "I have to wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror...I never want to doubt I did the right thing". As your trusted Loan Consultant, you have my word that you too, will be treated exactly the same!
A little something about Southern Oregon. Medford, Oregon is located in the south western part of the state. We are just just a short drive from the California border. Our beautiful Rogue Valley has so much to offer and I feel truly blessed to live in "God's Country". I share my love of this area with my husband, Bill of over 19 years.
A little bit about me. Bill and I have three grown kids between the two of us. Oldest son is a successful software engineer, our middle daughter works works in the technical industry pertaining to online advertising and our youngest son, just completed his fourth year in the US Marine Corps. We're proud of all of them! Since the kids are grown and gone, if it weren't for the dogs, we'd be pretty much empty nesters!
Not only do we enjoy the surroundings that the Rogue Valley and the surrounding Oregon area have to offer, we love to travel. We've been blessed to have traveled to some wonderful destinations. The people we have met and the memories we have made are priceless to us.
