Here at Skyline Home Loans NW, we have deep roots in our community. In 1983, Oregon native, Ken Maes and his father were among the co-founders of highly regarded First Pacific Mortgage, in Clackamas, Oregon. The Maes’ guided a team of six people into a company of more than 100 employees. First Pacific Mortgage survived every market bump and bubble, including 18 percent interest rates. In 2010, Ken Maes strategically aligned with Skyline Home Loans, one of the nation’s largest independent and top-ranked mortgage companies. The move gave Maes all the benefits of a large company, yet the freedom to continue operating with the same spirit that started First Pacific Mortgage–highly relational, community minded and nimble. The result? His team, clients, and partners have access to unique custom-designed tools, skills and strategies to help manage and expedite loans through direct approval with the three major lenders; financial power to keep all loans in-house; and a streamlined loan application and approval process for the buyer and the real estate broker. In fact, Skyline Home Loans NW routinely delivers loans in less than 30 days.
