Integrity, respect and attention to detail are what Claire is all about. What Claire enjoys most about being an Independent Mortgage Broker is the gratification that comes from helping people with their home financing needs, whether it is helping them get into a new home, making their current home more affordable or enjoyable to live in, or just being able to answer any questions they may have. Claire is passionate about the mortgage broker model (as compared to banker) and educating consumers about why this model is the best space to get a mortgage (ask Claire or read this).
Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Claire began her career as a mortgage broker in 2013 when she joined the family business. She apprenticed under her dad and Mortgage First’s president, Todd Allen, who has been in the mortgage business since 1984, and in the real estate industry since 1977. Claire’s prior experience in management has also contributed to both her success as a mortgage originator, and now as a company co-owner, as well. Claire has served on the Mid-Willamette Valley Chapter of the Oregon Mortgage Association board since 2016, and was Chapter President 2018-2019. Claire is happily married to Matt, and together they both stay busy within the local real estate industry, as well as at home with their six children (future employees)! Claire puts her relationship with Jesus first, is a member of Salem Alliance Church, and supports her husband in serving on Keizer Young Life committee.
