UMortgage is set to open a new office in Wilsonville, Oregon.

UMortgage is set to open a new office in Wilsonville, Oregon. The new office will be led by regional vice president Kahren Oxner. The addition of the Pacific Northwest branch comes in tandem with the company's mission for rapid growth, specifically in the PNW market, according to a press release.

Regional vice president Kahren Oxner is a Wilsonville resident and Oregon native with over 20 years of experience serving Oregon, California, and Washington as a loan originator. She joined the mortgage industry shortly after graduating college and quickly felt at home.

In 2020, she was named in the Scotsman Guide Top 1% of originators in the country. In that same year, she was also in the top 20 United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM) originators for the state of Oregon.

Joining Oxner are loan originators Jen Bell, Candice Cain, and David Carpenter. Bell served as a US Naval Instructor for 10 years prior to beginning her work in the mortgage industry. Now, she uses her teaching experience to help educate first-time home buyers. In 2020, Bell joined Oxner on the UWM list of top 20 Oregon-based originators.

After 20 years in the fashion industry, Cain decided it was time to change career paths and utilized her problem-solving skills and attention to detail to make a name for herself in the mortgage industry. As a Loan Originator, she specializes in non-traditional lending.

Carpenter was introduced to the industry by his father, also a loan originator in Oregon. Oxner was drawn to UMortgage because of its clear dedication to growing the PNW market through the support of like-minded loan originators in the region, according to the company.
