Hello and welcome to Empower Residential Mortgage, LLC! My name is Ron Kurahara and I am the proud owner and mortgage broker of this independent brokerage. I am a 4th generation resident, raised in the beautiful town of Hood River and am blessed to call it my home. I am happily married with three amazing children who bring joy to my life every day.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Lewis and Clark College and my MBA from the University of Portland. With over 25 years of experience in mortgage loan origination, I have seen the industry evolve and change, but one thing remains constant - my passion for helping people achieve their dream of homeownership.

At Empower Residential Mortgage, LLC, we strive to provide exceptional service to our clients with competitive rates and low fees. We are proud to be bilingual in Spanish and serve the Columbia River Gorge, as well as the states of Oregon and Washington.

Thank you for considering Empower Residential Mortgage, LLC for your home financing needs. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your homeownership goals.
