Get to Know Blake Rice
In my twenty years as a Mortgage Advisor, consistency has been the key to successfully serving clients. It includes consistently closing loans on time and maintaining consistent and open communications from beginning to end of every transaction. I consistently strive to deliver on my promise to do everything possible to ensure an outstanding lending experience, whether the client is a seasoned real estate investor or first time home buyer.
As a Portland native, I joined PacRes Mortgage because I liked that they are a local mortgage lender. All of our underwriting and processing is done right here in-house. Our founders, who still manage the company, are also local and always think ahead of the curve in terms of operations, loan products, and how best to serve our clients. From this combination of talent, focus, and sense of community, Pacific Residential Mortgage has grown to be a leading Northwest Mortgage Bank licensed to do business in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Colorado, Arizona, and Texas.
With PacRes Mortgage, I can offer clients a wide array of lending solutions including Conventional Loans, Refinancing, Adjustable Rate Loans, 2nd Mortgages, Home Equity Lines of Credit, plus FHA, and VA loan products. Our exclusive RuraLiving Home Mortgage loan package is a perfect fit for this region with lending choices for current and prospective homeowners in rural areas and smaller communities.
I became a Mortgage Advisor right after graduating from the University of Oregon. After several years at a large firm, I joined PacRes Mortgage when they opened their doors in 2004. From that start, and throughout times of economic uncertainty, PacRes Mortgage has succeeded while others have not because of our consistent focus on doing what's right. This has contributed to my own success as my business is based on 100% referrals from satisfied clients.
My wife Kari and I have three great children...one daughter and two sons. Together, we ski throughout winter and enjoy the beach and Central Oregon during the summer. I'm a big sports fan and enjoy coaching our kids' baseball and basketball teams. When time permits, you'll find me on the golf course or paddle-boarding on the Willamette River. As Oregon natives, our family enjoys all that the Northwest has to offer.
Please call or email me here in Lake Oswego anytime for a no-commitment consultation to explore your home financing options. Our goal is for you to have an informed and satisfying lending experience right from the start, a promise all of us here at Pacific Residential Mortgage stands ready to fulfill.
Straddling the Willamette River, Oregon’s largest city offers culture, history, coffee, and lots of books. While Pacific Northwest winters may be damp, outdoor beauty abounds year-round. Forest Park, a 5,200-acre space that provides refuge to native wildlife, offers easy access to hiking and mountain-biking trails. For a scenic stroll, head over to the Lan Su Chinese Garden, the Portland Japanese Garden, or the International Rose Test Garden.
Portland is home to many family-friendly attractions, including the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Pittock Mansion, the Oregon Zoo, and Oaks Amusement Park, one of the oldest continually operating amusement parks in the country.
Plus, readers rejoice—the City of Roses is home to Powell’s, the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world. Once you’ve picked out a book, grab a cup of coffee at Portland Coffee Roasters or Stumptown.
