The DC Lending Story

DC Lending started in 1998 as a new family operated mortgage company. As we moved into the second generation of business, one of our sons settled in Portland and another daughter settled in Eastern Washington. With this new generation, our family decided to continue to share our knowledge, and passion for the industry by creating a new North West based mortgage company called DC Lending. Here we would serve the Pacific Northwest market and expand into the commercial lending industry.

Through the two generations of our family operated business, we have expanded to the newest technology and modern business communication. We made it a commitment to expand and grow without losing the same core values that brought us success and valued relationships. Our passion is to provide others with opportunity and make their dreams come true. From buyers, realtors, loan officers, and community members – we are here for you every step of the way.

Because our clients have unique stories like us, we strive to create an environment where our team can be creative to provide you with the best loan options, rates, and information available.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. To learn more about us and how we can help you with loans and the home buying process, visit our team page where you can read individual bios, and access direct links to our social media pages.
