A Message from Derek Hill, Advantage Mortgage President:

The Advantage Mortgage Experience

Advantage Mortgage was founded on the principal that big bank/retail lending, was not the best way to serve clients. On August 1st, 2018, our Canby office opened and a new path was forged in Mortgage Lending.

As Independent Mortgage Brokers, we supply our customers with smarter and more financially sound solutions in home lending. You can trust that with any of our Advantage Mortgage team, that you’ll be in the hands of experts. You’ll be guided with knowledge, expertise and kindness, along with the most innovative technology on the market today.

Advantage Mortgage Loan Officers
