SELCO Community Credit Union Welcomes New Bend-Area Mortgage Loan Officer Erin Torrance

Press Release

Torrance brings 30 years of experience to SELCO

(BEND, Ore.) — SELCO Community Credit Union recently hired Erin Torrance to be a mortgage loan officer in the Bend area. She will be based in SELCO’s Old Mill office at 88 Scalehouse Loop. In this role, Torrance will oversee mortgage loans in Central and Eastern Oregon and work directly with SELCO members to counsel them through the mortgage process.

Torrance has worked in the mortgage and real estate industries for 30 years. During that time, she has held several roles, from licensed real estate agent, loan processor, escrow officer, and auditor, to her current position as a loan officer. Torrance has a “full circle” understanding of the mortgage lending process, whether it’s for buying a home or refinancing an existing mortgage. Most recently, she was a loan officer/loan officer assistant for two years at Academy Mortgage.

“I am excited to have such a real estate professional join our team,” said Mike Lavender, SELCO Mortgage manager. “Her long and diverse background in this industry will be a tremendous asset in helping SELCO, our members, and the communities of Central Oregon.”

Away from work, Torrance enjoys all things outdoors—camping, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, mountain biking, and more. Her true joy in life is her husband and two teenagers.
