• We have worked with Kerry Greenwald and his team at Creekside Mortgage for many years.  Each time they have exceeded our expectations and consistently prove they care about you. Kerry and his team go above and beyond and I personally can't thank them enough.  They were always available to answer questions/reassure me when the process got complicated.  I would highly recommend them for your VA mortgage needs.


  • Gayle Hepler (my loan officer) and the team at Creekside Mortgage are awesome! They were very professional, informative, helpful and caring. For me, buying a house is a difficult arduous task. Gayle and the team helped make this a very smooth experience. They all worked very hard to get my loan approved and funded quickly. We began our initial loan disclosures on 1-27-16 and were totally closed, funded and recorded 3-1-16. Super fast and awesome! Gayle worked closely with my realtor Gloria Matthews at Principal Property Brokers. The two wonderful ladies were my dynamic duo. I couldn't have asked for a better team. I strongly recommend anyone who is reading reviews about where to go for your home loans, to stop and look no further. These are the people who will take care of you. Thank you Gayle and the team at Creekside Mortgage.

  • Kerry and his team are great.
    Michelle was the person who helped me to get my VA refinancing loan. She always stayed in contact with me by email or phone. Also she kept me informed on the status of the loan. Liked doing everything on-line. So much easier then having to go to an office in town when I had papers to sign.
    I would recommend anyone needing a VA loan to contact Creekside Mortgage. They go the extra mile for you!!



  • This is our second VA mortgage with Creekside Mortgage inc.. Kerry Greenwald, Loan Officer, Michelle Garifalakis, Loan Assistant and Teri Lane, Assistant treated us with the utmost respect and handled our mortgage with total professionalism and quality service. Kerry was available to us on the weekend over the Holidays to answer questions for us and our Relator. Thank you Creekside Mortgage for a job well done.


    Over the top.  That is what they do here to make sure their Customers are happy.  I have worked with Kerry and his team at Creekside Mortgage 3 times and each time I am still blown away about how they make me feel like part of thier family.  Whether it be a quick phone call to answer questions or an email they are always their to make you feel welcome and your business and your loan experience is important to them. The last 2 experiences, Kerry saved me thousands of dollars by taking his time watching the interest rates to make sure we locked in at the best possible time. I feel as a Veteran I could not recommend a better place to get a mortgage that understands your values and needs.

  • I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Gayle Hepler and the team at Creekside Mortgage in helping us secure a conventional mortgage on our home purchase. I found Creekside by searching online for lenders in the area and they had great reviews on Yelp and other sites, and for good reason!
    The financing portion of our home buying experience was more enjoyable and stress free than I ever could have imagined. Gayle was very helpful in getting all of our information put together up-front so there were no surprises in underwriting. Not only that, but Gayle and her team managed to close our loan in record time, even with all of the new TRID rules!
    Gayle is top notch in our book. She went above and beyond to give us great service with a personalized touch. Not only does she know the mortgage industry inside and out, her experience, dedication and knowledge of the overall real estate market and home buying process was invaluable to us. I greatly appreciate the effort she put into helping us secure financing to purchase our dream home.
    We will absolutely recommend Creekside to anyone we know that is looking to purchase or refinance in the future.
    Thanks again Gayle!



  • Working through all the stuff that goes into getting a mortgage and purchasing a home can be stressful and time consuming, but Kerry and his team are there for you every step of the way. Nicolle was always in constant communication with me when they needed paperwork from me.

    I have worked with Kerry and his team on two other home purchases and a few streamline refinances. When I was looking for my first home every place I talked to were quick to tell me how much they could get me to buy my dream home but Kerry was the only one to sit down and talk with me about what I could afford.

    I recommend Kerry and his team to anyone looking for a mortgage.





    If you're not using Creekside Mortgage, you're doing it wrong! Kerry Greenwald and his assistants where awesome at getting me into my first home. 


    My name is Chris M. A few months ago, I saw an article in the Oregonian newspaper about a Mortgage company that had a good knowledge of VA loans. I was just beginning my home search and knew I would want a VA loan. so I called Creekside mortgage, and they explained a few facets of a VA loan as opposed to a different type. They also introduced me to Steve Granmo, my realtor, who patiently took me from home to home, trying to narrow down the one I would end up with. I said yes to three different homes, but for some reason, they all fell apart. The fourth house, however, was the one that i was able to find and complete. The staff at Creekside walked me through the many steps needed to complete the approval process for my loan. I spent time on the phone with Nicolle, who explained all my questions. Kerry also called me to go over the loan rate amount and other items about the loan that may have been difficult to understand.. The whole staff at Creekside, was professional and knew what steps to take and in which order, to make the loan approval process as easy as possible for me, while still making me more knowledgeable about the workings and requirements of a VA home loan. Thanks again, Creekside,


  • What a team. Consummate professionals, always. Two local bankers told me I could not use V.A. benefits more than once to buy a home, so I almost didn't try to buy another house. One e-mail to Kerry's team confirmed that vets can indeed use our benefits more than once, until the entitlement is used up.
    Every question is answered immediately. This team cares and puts clients' needs before their own, always. I never felt ignored or put off and I had plenty of questions. At every step, everything is made clear and Creekside Mortgage is always in our corner. Kerry started this company because he is a vet himself. We are so lucky to have this mortgage company working for us vets. I am very grateful.
