About Kristen
NMLS# 475717
Portland, OR

Kristen knows a thing or two about the importance of great communication (she even has a degree in it). Her excellent communication skills have been put to good use during her 11 years as a home loan officer. Using a clear, friendly approach, she advocates for her clients and keeps them in the loop at every step of the lending process. Kristen’s outstanding customer service has earned her Umpqua’s prestigious Circle of Excellence Award; she’s also received the Five Star Mortgage Professional award every year since 2012.


When Kristen isn’t going above and beyond for her clients, you’ll find her in the great outdoors. A committed weekend warrior, she enjoys rock climbing and running the streets of Portland.

What it’s like to work with Kristen
Kristen was vey helpful and answered all our questions during this overwhelming process! Being new at this, we really entrusted this process to her and it went amazingly!
Ellen N.
We have worked with Kristen Burke since our very first mortgage loan in 2005. Kristen continues to show exceptional knowledge, professionalism, patience, and great customer service to my family. She is the primary reason we continue to return to this financial institution for our family’s banking needs.

I refer many of my buyers to Kristen Burke at Umpqua Bank. Kristen, because she’s on top of it and is very customer service oriented. Umpqua Bank, because it is local!
