About Dan

As a Sierra Pacific Mortgage Loan Officer, I am dedicated to helping my clients find the perfect loan tailored to their unique financial needs. It would be my honor to serve you. My team and I are enthusiastic about new homeowners and helping current homeowners determine the best lending fit for your needs. We focus on planning, education, and execution, all at your convenience, time frame and comfort level. Who is "Dan the Mortgage Man?" Hi, I'm Dan Summerfeldt, and in 1992 I began helping individuals, families, and businesses as a financial planner. A few years later, my business partner and I purchased one of our client's businesses, a growing portable toilet company in Alaska. I traded by business suit for coveralls and soon earned the nickname "Rent-a-Can Dan." My wife was relocated to Portland, Oregon in 1998 and as I transitioned to a new life in the Pacific Northwest, I was encouraged to return to financial advising where I fell in love with helping people with mortgage planning. Since then, I've focused exclusively on helping people purchase or refinance their homes, earning me the new nickname of "Dan the Mortgage Man." It's by combining the skills learned from the times I wore the fancy business suit, and the times I was running our business, knee deep in...(you know), that gives me the creativity, determination, and the financial background necessary to help my clients understand and secure the best fit for their lending needs. Sometimes this even means counseling our clients to wait until they are in a better situation to make a change, or supporting them with sticking with their current loan makes the most sense. We have the flexibility to offer a variety of lending solutions including Conventional, VA, USDA, and FHA. We also have the confidence and determination to offer reassurance and expertise in more challenging loans, including opportunities for self-employed borrowers, manufactured homeowners, and for homeowners, or their families considering a reverse mortgage. I am committed to lending solutions that are sustainable for my clients to ensure life long trust based relationships. I look forward to the opportunity to help you through the lending process, or help you confirm you are already headed in the direction that best meets your needs. Cheers!

Testimonials

Our home buying experience was exceptional. Dan provided financing options for every scenario we came up with and worked great with our real estate agent. Our agent also told me that he has never worked with a broker that as so 'on top of things' and 'well organized.'

My experience with Dan Summerfeldt was excellent from the very first contact to completion of my reverse mortgage. I, frankly, do not think it could have gone better.

As first time home buyers, my wife and I were very nervous on buying our house because we knew next to nothing about the process. A friend referred us to Dan Summerfeldt. They told us that he would be honest and fair while helping us along the process. We were more than pleased with how much Dan did for us! He happily answered any and all questions that we had for him. He made us feel like we were his only clients and kept us perfectly within our budget. We would (and already have) recommended him to all our friends and family.

I just want you to know B. and J. that this is UN-HEARD OF! Right now, in our market, everyone (Lender) is behind, or struggling to hit their dates. Coming in ahead of schedule is amazing and I set really ambitious close dates. I am VERY impressed with Dan and Jessica and team! Amazing! Good work everyone. The seller has said that closing anytime is fine and according to our contract it's on or BEFORE the date..so B. and J. you tell us when you want keys and we will coordinate with escrow to be sure we sign accordingly.

Dan offered excellent support and access to multiple mortgage types to fit our needs. We always felt that they had our best interests in mind and I never felt that they were "selling" me a certain type of mortgage for their own gain. I have worked with several mortgage lenders over the years and since finding them, I have come to really trust and respect their knowledge and guidance throughout the process. I have truly racked my brain for something you could improve, but my experience was really great on all levels. I recommend them without any hesitations to navigate the generally stressful task of selecting and securing the right mortgage for the best terms.
