Our Story

The Pacific Residential Mortgage Story

We opened our doors in Lake Oswego, Oregon on May 1, 2004, with a goal to be the region’s premier mortgage banker by combining solid business principles with a client focus. This commitment has never changed and today PRM is recognized as a top-tier provider of home loans throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Contributing to our continued success and reputation for outstanding client service is the fact that PRM has always been a local mortgage banker. While licensed to do business in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California, what we do and how we do it is local. Our loan processing, underwriting, and funding is done in-house which helps streamline the entire lending process. Our Branch offices, located around the region, are staffed by local individuals who know the markets being served. And most importantly, being a local lender enables us to serve everyone not just as a client but as a friend and neighbor.

PRM’s success can also be attributed to our outstanding Loan Originators and skilled staff of Branch and mortgage banking operations individuals. Many members of our team have been with us from the very start. Others joined our “family” after realizing that PRM is exactly what they want in a professional environment. It is no surprise that our Loan Originators average nearly 20 years of lending experience with our operations staff not far behind. Looking forward, PRM’s growth will continue to be grounded on maintaining the continuity of our family and this will be done by selectively adding new members in a manner that creates a win-win situation for our clients and PRM as a whole.

The original ownership team of PRM remains active in daily operations and includes Matt Stashin (President and CEO), Eric Wiley (Chief Operating Officer), and Bob Hefty (Chief Financial Officer). Together, these mortgage industry veterans have guided PRM to achieving and maintaining high standards in client satisfaction, loan quality, and lending performance resulting in consistent mortgage volume and sustained growth even during down markets. Their success has been recognized in many ways, including:

  • 100 Best Companies Award – 2011 and 2012
  • Quality Lender Award – 2010 and 2009
  • Co-Broker of The Year by OAMP – 2008
  • A+ Accredited Lender Rating by the Better Business Bureau
  • Appointment to the Board of Directors of the Oregon Mortgage Bankers Association
  • Appointment to the Board of Directors of the Oregon Association of Mortgage Professionals

But the one recognition that means the most has come from our clients who return for repeat transactions and who refer their friends to us.

Giving back to local communities is a fundamental principle of PRM. Across our entire platform, team members are dedicated participants in
their communities ranging from leadership positions in Chambers of Commerce to serving as committee members of non-profit organizations. Many employees, including our three owners, have been or are currently coaches across the full range of youth athletics. In an official capacity, our charitable relationships are focused on organizations that support kids with The Boys and Girls Club being one of the major organizations we are proud to serve as a corporate sponsor.

The PRM story is all about caring for people and our communities.  We are a respected Northwest mortgage lender because of this dedication combined with our ability to offer a wide array of home loan products with outstanding client service all at industry-competitive rates and fees.  Our story is also about the trust consistently placed in PRM, out of all the available choices, by real estate professionals, repeat clients and their referrals. This respect and trust are our true measures of success and stand as your assurance of a satisfying lending experience with us.
