Joe Bellows, Senior Mortgage Advisor NMLS# 119815
Joe Bellows has been a well established and very active member in the Oregon and Washington mortgage industry for several years. Joe’s impressive and comprehensive background in the Oregon and Washington mortgage industry dates back well over 15 years. Joe, who is also a native Oregonian, demonstrated a remarkable interest in helping people at a very young age. In fact, it was through his volunteer work with local charities that Joe became friends with William O’kief. William had just established Security Mortgage Lending and Joe recognized immediately that Bill’s company could provide him with a way to help families far beyond his commitment to his weekend activities as a local volunteer. Joe realized that he had found a real opportunity to help local families turn a dream into a reality.
With over 15 years experience as a mortgage broker, Joe decided he could better assist local families with their housing needs if he also became a licensed realtor. As a result, in 2007 he did exactly that and became a licensed realtor. It is Joe’s commitment, dedication to his clients’ and passion for learning every aspect of the real estate and mortgage market that separates him from his peers.
Joe and his wife welcomed a daughter into his family in 2009. Joe loves to serve the local community in which he lives. Joe also enjoys traveling, golf and cooking.
