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.

    Jason and team were knowledgeable, prompt and super easy to work with. They took all of the fear out of finding an understanding the loan and even had everything wrapped up a week before our closing date.
    I found Uptown Mortgage on Yelp! and very happy I reached out. I would recommend anyone I know to use their services and will certainly use them again if the time ever comes for additional mortgage needs.

    Jason and his team did a really terrific job for our home purchase financing process. Jason was available weekdays, weekends, and evenings, and whenever we reached out, he got back to us within hours. He was proactive in his outreach and suggestions but also never pushy or overbearing. He knew a ton and could answer every question we could think of asking. I really can't recommend Jason and his team enough - they are great and you'll be in excellent hands if you give them your business.

    I had a great experience with Jason and his team at Uptown mortgage.  Starting with my initial email to Jason, which he responded to within 30 minutes, to discussions on which mortgage program was best for my situation, everything was very smooth and the communication was outstanding.  I had a somewhat unique situation in that I was using cash from the sale of some restricted stock/options from my company and which the trading window wasn't open until after the final loan objection date.  It was crucial that my pre-approval held together, since if something were to happed we would have lost our significant earnest money deposit.  Suffice it to say, Jason and team had all of my approval requirements met, so all that I had to do was exercise the options and sell the stock.  This final piece all came together within a week of our closing and worked just as expected.  I would not hesitate to work with Jason and Uptown Mortgage for any of my mortgage needs in the future.

    Jason Kauffman and his team are nothing short of miraculous. I worked with Jason 4 years ago on my inital home purchase and had a phenomenal experience, so when I started thinking about refinancing and consolidating two mortgages into one, he was the first (and honesly, only) person I called. Just like last time, he clearly laid out my options for me, gave me sound advice, answered my questions quickly and let me know exactly what to expect at each stage of the process - and ultimately took me from inital inquiry to closing in just 4 weeks. The process was completely painless, and I can't thank Jason and the rest of the team at Uptown Mortgage enough for yet another great experience!
