Get Mortgage Rates for today!
Several factors can affect your ability to get low mortgage rates. Credit score, down payment, the home you want to buy or refinance, the length of the loan, how much you borrow, and even when and where you're borrowing can all have an impact on what sort of home loan interest rates you can obtain.
Finding the lowest mortgage interest rates is only one factor to be considered when shopping for a home loan. Other considerations, such as closing costs and the type of mortgage, will affect your overall costs as well.
Fill out the below Mortgage Rate & Cost Request form to the best of your knowledge and I will get back to you as quickly as possible with an estimated scenario.

About Alan Burkhart
NMLS ID 312229
A native of Sydney, Australia and a resident of Oregon since 1990, I consider Portland my home. Having traveled extensively throughout the USA, I can state with confidence that there is no other city in the country where I would rather live. A graduate of the University of Technology, Sydney with a Bachelor of Business degree, I have worked in the fields of financing, marketing and advertising for over 30 years.
I have been a mortgage banker now for 19 years. The first half of this period was spent with two of the country’s largest mortgage banks. Here I gained extensive training and was given the opportunity to do a large volume of loans that would not have been possible in a smaller company. The latter half I have worked for smaller, privately owned mortgage companie enjoying the more client focused, friendly atmosphere and the far greater choice of lenders to work with.
I have worked all my life in customer-focused, deadline oriented-industries. This serves me well as a mortgage consultant where deadlines are everything. I am very “hands-on” with my loans, and deal directly with many of the elements that are typically delegated to an assistant or processor.
HOW I WORK
My philosophy is that I spend an additional half an hour at the beginning of the transaction to get as much information as possible from all parties so that almost immediately, everything necessary to the successful close of the transaction has been put in place. I also do most of the communication between my client, realtors on both sides and the escrow officer and don’t delegate this to anyone else. That way I am hands on and know where everything lies at any stage of the transaction. All final documents are checked by me personally prior to closing so that everything is accurate and correct. I also believe that attending signings is an important part of the process to answer questions or just to make the client feel comfortable and taken care of. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are looking to buy or refinance. I look forward to working with you!

“Greatly appreciated knowledgeable lender”
As Real Estate Agents we know how important it is to work with an expert in the Mortgage industry. Alan Burkhart provides this expertise for us. We have worked with Alan on several transactions and have found him to be very knowledgeable and skilled in mortgage lending and we can always trust him to get the loan completed in a timely manner. Alan continually stays in contact with all parties of the home purchase and keeps everyone informed of the loan status. This ensures a smooth transaction and timely closing. We have had a couple of challenging situations where approval and funding of a loan were necessary in a short period of time. Alan went the extra mile to secure a loan for our clients to ensure our transaction closed. He is definitely an expert in the mortgage lending field and is greatly appreciated.
“Family Doctor of Mortgages”
Alan Burkhart helped me refinance my mortgage from a difficult sub-prime to a 30 year fixed with a low interest rate. Through his perseverance, integrity and resourcefulness, he succeeded in accomplishing the impossible for me by saving my home. Alan's honesty in dealing with mortgages has been a terrific asset for several members of my family in refinancing their homes, too. He is kind of like the family doctor with his caring enough attitude in handling our home mortgages
“Gone Above and Beyond”
We've worked with Alan on two new home purchases now, and each time he's gone above and beyond to make sure we were well informed, had the mortgage that was right for us, and were comfortable with our decision. We wouldn't consider working with anyone else.
