About Julie Farrell
Born and raised here in Portland. I attended Eastern Oregon State and graduated from Portland State with a degree in Communications. I’m an avid college (Go Ducks!) and high school (Go Lions!) football fan. I enjoy boating with my friends and family when it’s warm.
I’ve been in the mortgage industry since 2001. I started my career as a loan processor and quickly moved to a Junior Underwriter then onto Loan Originations in 2005. With my strong product knowledge and history in underwriting I have a unique approach to loan origination. I quickly analyze applications and will give you an honest approach on what programs will best fit your needs.
I moved into a Branch Manager position in 2010 and then into a Business Development role in November 2013 as National Director for LoanStar Home Lending’s Mortgages@Work division. Now I’m back to focusing on what I feel I do best: originate residential mortgage loans.
I enjoy being part of a team where I can develop life-long relationships with clients, my Realtor referral collaborators and other originators. I care about our industry, my peers and our community. I am thrilled to partner with a like-minded company.
