About Our Company
What makes us different?
Most people don’t fully appreciate a smooth home loan experience until they have had a bad experience. We’ve spent decades refining our operational processes, vetting lenders, testing new mortgage technology, and closing loans – all in an effort to provide the best experience to the borrower possible.
We work with a portfolio of lenders to find the right home for your loan.

Our company’s journey
Over 20 years ago Uptown Mortgage was founded by Lana Jern out of the living room of her home in the Uptown district in Denver, CO. Her background had been in processing mortgages for other loan originators and she believed that she could structure a better loan experience for homebuyers. Driven by her strong entrepreneurial spirit and soft-spoken leadership style she began building the framework of one of the top mortgage brokerages in Colorado.
Since then, we have helped thousands of our clients become homeowners. Our headquarters is now located in Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo). The company has also grown in size and reach, with a staff of licensed originators that are able to assist homebuyers in states other than Colorado.
Our mission of creating an exceptional home loan experience for every borrower that walks through our doors is as fundamental to our success now as it was back then.
We achieve this primarily through the service we provide. You will work directly with your mortgage professional and their processor to get your loan to the finish line.
As proud Mortgage Brokers, we’ve built our success on the relationships we’ve developed over 20 years with a network of wholesale lenders. This network allows us to provide our clients with exceptional service and competitive rates. It also allows us to find the right lender for more challenging loan situations or property types.
Because the origin of our company was rooted in the operations side of the mortgage industry, our processes and technology are second to none. The people who work for us and the systems we’ve built with them are what drive our success and borrower experience. Our licensed mortgage professionals are the best in the business. Figuring out difficult loans is what we do.
Purchasing or refinancing a home is a big deal, and you should be thoughtful about who you choose to work with. Since 2000, we’ve been successfully helping people navigate the home loan process. Reach out to us today and let one of our professionals help guide you on your mortgage journey.
