A little bit about our mortgage company

Uptown Mortgage is located in Historic Lower Downtown Denver. Having operated in Colorado since 2000, we’ve worked hard to build a reputation that we are proud of. We make sure that every borrower that walks through our doors gets exceptional service. All our loan officers take very seriously the fact that purchasing a home is likely the largest purchase you will ever make. Something this important shouldn’t be left to chance. If you are looking to purchase a new home or refinance an existing home, let one of Uptown Mortgage’s professionals show you why we are the best in the business.

Mortgage Broker.

We are mortgage brokers with access to a large network of wholesale mortgage lenders. What this means for our borrowers is that they get the most competitive pricing available and a service level that is unrivaled. Being a broker gives us access to the best Conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA loan programs, as well as down payment assistance programs specific to Colorado homebuyers. At the end of the day, our primary goal is to pair you with a loan that is competitively priced and fits all of your needs.


We work with a wide range of lenders that specialize in loan programs for borrowers with different “risks”. If you’ve had a bankruptcy, if you are self-employed, or you have a low credit score, use our experience to help find a loan for you. We have products for single family properties, condos and lofts, and multi-unit investment properties. Colorado specific down payment assistance programs are available for qualified buyers as well.

Loan Experts.

You will work with one mortgage broker that will help you from the very beginning all the way through to the closing. All of our mortgage brokers have the expertise to guide you through the loan process with confidence and professionalism.

Personalized Service.

Uptown Mortgage has been operating in Denver since 2000 and we have always taken pride in the service we provide. You can meet your loan officer face to face and develop a long-standing relationship for your future purchases. Your loan officer will ensure that every aspect of your loan process goes smoothly.

    My fiance and I couldn't be happier that we got the opportunity to work with Barb Van Horn on our very first home purchase! Barb is so kind and wonderful to work with. We had many questions as it was our first experience with purchasing a home. Barb was very thorough, honest, and helpful every step of the way. She was always available and quick to address any inquiries that we had! We could tell Barb genuinely wanted to help us achieve our goals in whichever way she could. She has set the bar very high on what a mortgage broker should be. We will continue to work with Barb for our future mortgage needs. Would definitely recommend our family and friends to Barb. Also to any Yelpers out there looking for a pleasant and reliable mortgage broker to work with!

    I had a great experience working with Barb.  I was working with a different broker and started getting the feeling I wasn't getting the full story but I called Barb and she was super clear, open, and honest and had a great loan package to offer.  She wasn't pushy at all and walked me through the whole process and answered all of my questions clearly and completely, I'm so glad I decided to switch to work with Barb!  I highly recommend you give her a call!

    I choose this company because of its yelp recommendations. Yelp was spot  on.  The loan process was all done virtually through email, telephone conversations, and their virtual loan application website.  All went smoothly.  Jason Kauffman and his team were responsive and reliable.  They took texts on weekends and even when out of town Jason responded to me and made sure I got the documents I needed.  To top it off Jason gave great advice to raise our credit scores.  Good rates, professional service and nice people to deal with.

    We worked with Lana and team for a mortgage on our home back in 2018 and they made it so easy. When rates dropped earlier this year we worked with them to refinance and again they were the easiest to work with and had the best rates.

    Shout out to Barb from Uptown Mortgage for helping us with our first home purchase. Barb went above and beyond to make our first experience a wonderful one. I will highly recommend her to anyone needing help. She works fast and was very responsive when we needed her. Barb is awesome and we can't say enough good things about her!
