My name is Kathryn Nguyen Ramos
But you can call me Kat.
I was born and raised among a tight-knit Vietnamese community in Vancouver, WA. and was one of the first people in my entire family to be born in the USA. Much of my upbringing was spent in immersion schools in southwest Washington/northwest Portland, which instilled a strong sense of community in me and how I advocate for those whose voice should be heard and their needs met. Many of my family members own a business in some area of real estate (my mother is an investor, my cousins are real estate brokers, and my uncles are contractors) so naturally, I gravitated towards a career in relation to real estate that would highlight my strengths in communication, paying attention to detail, and building relationships.
I met my husband in 2011 and later married into his Hispanic family who inspired me to spend the past near-decade absorbing Mexican traditions, learning to cook authentic Mexican cuisine (there's no recipe like Mom's or Grandma's recipe!), and of course- learning to speak Spanish. I enjoy traveling the world to learn of different cultures and consider myself to be a culinary enthusiast and appreciator of music. My other interests include history and architecture (in other words, if you have an open spot on your team for trivia night, I’m your girl!). I am also involved with IRCO, a non-profit organization that provides assistance and resources to underserved communities in the greater Portland metropolitan area. I currently live in Vancouver, WA. with my husband, 2-year-old son, and our two dogs.
From my humble beginnings, I bring a rich cultural foundation, abundant knowledge and love for the cities where I grew up. It is my honor to represent American Pacific Mortgage by elevating your home buying experience. What I bring to the table? Over 10 years of commitment to exemplary customer service to continue upholding the already-stellar reputation of Mak Mortgage Group, servicing Washington, Oregon, and California. My team and I look forward to making your dreams of homeownership a reality.
