Buying a home is personal - so is our mortgage process

I love working in a dream-making industry. Honestly, how could I not? Everyday I get to help people invest in a future that aligns with their most fundamental joys. On top of that, I've had the pleasure of building relationships with colleagues and industry professionals that I wouldn't trade for the world. But if we take an honest look at the mortgage industry over the past decade, it's easy to see the way we engage with the housing process is changing. Technology and career saturation have made a huge impact on how we operate (I think it's safe to say we all know someone who's either financing or brokering homes - if not multiple people).

So, when I thought about how our team was showing up and standing out in the industry, I thought of something we’ve been doing well for decades: embracing the human element. Fostering something in our client relationships that felt…homey and special and beyond a commodity. We see words like “professional”, “experienced”, and “integrity” all the time in our industry, but I kept thinking…

Shouldn’t you be able to expect your mortgage team to be professional, experienced, and to act in your best interest? Shouldn’t these qualities be a prerequisite to the job, not the job description itself? For us, stopping at “professional” seemed like a missed opportunity to do something much bigger. Because as serious and business-like as a home loan is, it’s also - maybe more importantly - deeply personal.

There’s no denying we live for evaluating a financial landscape, but we don’t care about numbers for the sake of indulging our analytical side (although that’s fun too)…we care about what they mean for YOU. How they affect your lifestyle, your day-to-day financial freedom or stress, your monthly and yearly reality, your plans for the future.

What that means for you

Essentially, we’re in it for the “you” of it all. We aren’t here to pay lip service to prerequisite bullet points we feel should be a given part of your home loan journey, like professionalism, integrity, and general know-how. We’re here to translate those things into creating a sense of community for you within our team and your new neighborhood.

Fun facts and technicals:

  • Together, we’re rocking 80 years of combined mortgage and real estate experience (20 for Steph and a combined 60 for the rest of Team Noble).
  • Half of us came into our mortgage careers from the healthcare industry, including branch manager Steph (who was a labor and delivery nurse). So, you could say we’re good with life transitions.
  • We service California, Oregon, and Washington, because obviously…the west coast is the best coast.
  • We are a queer-owned, female-led enterprise and an uncompromising LGBTQIA2S+, BIPOC safe space.
  • We have a collective team addiction to finding (and guarding with our lives) the perfectly inked writing pen.

At CrossCountry Mortgage, your future is our focus.

Hi, I'm Steph - top 1% Oregon lender, diehard west-coaster, and all-things-housing enthusiast. I've been in the mortgage industry for 20+ years (with my team bringing a combined 60+ more) and over that time, I've learned one thing about Team Noble: if it isn't personal, it's not for us. What do I mean by that? Well, we've seen how the mortgage industry has changed over the last decade - an influx of technology and more people raising their hands to "get you into a brand new home today" have made it difficult to see what we believe is still the most important part of this whole thing: you. The personal, everyday details of your life. How do you want to be living? Where do you see yourself financially in 5 years? 10 years? What's your "wildest dreams" real estate scenario? That's what we want to know and what we work to make happen. And we believe you get to that space by embracing the deeply personal process of dream-making through real estate.

If you want service that feels like family, a sense of community with us and your city, and down-to-earth advice on how to get the best possible deal on a new home (second home, equity loan, refinance, etc), we're the team you want in your corner.
