Paula NirschlBranch Manager
After coaching women's basketball at the collegiate level for 10 years, I translated my passion for coaching to become a Loan Officer in the mortgage industry in 2004 where I use my team and goal oriented approach to helping people obtain home financing.
Since 2006 I have been a Branch Manger as well as top Loan Officer in the industry. I joined Guild Mortgage in 2011 and have since built a strong team that closes $200 million in loans on an annual basis. In 2016, Mortgage Executive Magazine named me as one of the Top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America.
In addition to mortgage lending, I currently serve as the Columbia River Chapter President of The National Association of Professional Mortgage Women (NAPMW). In 2016 the organization awarded me the National Leader of the Year Award. I also actively support many other non-profit organizations in Clark, Cowlitz and Multnomah Counties, including Ninety-Nine Girlfriends, an organization that engages women of Portland and Southwest Washington in giving back to our community through collective action.
