About Meredith Cole

I’ve called the magnificent Pacific Northwest home for most of my life. I grew up in SW Portland, and I’m so fortunate that I get to live and work close to that community! I spend much of my free time being active and participating in many outdoor activities and adventures, including hiking and playing in the snow up on Mt. Hood, plus drives through wine country and time spent on rivers or at the coast. Before starting my mortgage career, I spent a little more than a decade in the incredible restaurant scene here in the Portland area, so I am a bit of a foodie as well.

With more than 2 decades of experience in the mortgage industry, I’ve worked as a loan originator and held positions in mortgage operations. I’ve also owned and rehabbed investment properties. I’m no stranger to a hammer or a chop saw! My diverse background allows me to bring unique perspectives, knowledge and skills to my clients.

I focus on building and nurturing relationships with clients so I can customize their mortgage experience. I am committed to providing my clients with a comfortable and connected process from start to finish. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor, I have expertise in all residential loan products.

My approach is also somewhat educational, and I believe in the importance of providing clients with the tools to make their own informed decisions. I pride myself on my professionalism and integrity, and I would love the opportunity to help you with your mortgage needs!
