Meet Fred Bachofner

I have been involved in residential and commercial mortgages since 1976. I started with US Bank doing residential lending and worked for 12 years managing a foreign-owned real estate investment company. In February 2004, I was pleased to join First Pacific Mortgage as a Sr. Loan Consultant and started specializing in Reverse Mortgages while continuing to fulfill all clients’ needs with all residential lending programs. In April 2010, First Pacific merged with Skyline Home Loans. Over the years, I have seen many financial changes in the mortgage industry. In my opinion, what has not changed is the high quality commitment to service I feel that every one of my clients deserve. The mortgage process can be overwhelming. It is my job to be flexible and make your mortgage experience a pleasant one. At Skyline, we offer in-house conventional, jumbo, FHA and FHA 203K, VA and VA Streamline, USDA Rural, Washington State Home Advantage Program, Reverse Mortgage purchase and refinances, HARP2 refinances, investment property loans, etc. I received the Five Star Mortgage Professional Award, published in the Portland Monthly magazine, four years in a row from 2013 to 2016. Five Star Professional surveyed over 12,300 Portland homeowners and less than 5% of all mortgage professionals in the area were selected.

I am proud to be a native Portland area resident. I attended Madison High School and Portland State University.

I have been married to my wife Diane for over 30 years and we have two beautiful daughters, both graduating from the University of Oregon. I have been involved in coaching kids, starting out with T-ball to high school softball. I also enjoy golf, fishing, and camping. I have volunteered for many non-profit organizations and have been involved in many service projects in our community. I am a Past-President of the Clackamas Sunrise Rotary and the PSU Athletic Association.

Please give me a call anytime; I would be pleased to be your mortgage banker for life!
