Liz is a native Oregonian and has lived in the Pacific NW for most of her life. She received a BS from Oregon State University – go Beavs! She has two small children who keep her really busy. In her free time (there’s not a lot of it!), Liz likes to run, play the piano and shop and eat in all of the amazing new places popping up in her inner SE neighborhood.
Liz got her start in the mortgage industry in 2003 and has since been awarded top-producer on multiple occasions and has been named a Portland Monthly Five-Star Mortgage Professional 5 times.
The mortgage industry is fast-paced and ever-changing; there’s never had a dull day at the office. What Liz loves most about this job is the ability to take a potentially stressful and confusing process for people and simplify it. If she can make the loan process as enjoyable as possible, as well as alleviate some of the stress and hassle for her clients, she’d say she’s done her job well.
Amanda Good arrived in Portland several years ago, via Oregon’s North Willamette Valley wine country. After graduating with a B.S. in history from Portland State University, she worked as an accounting and design center consultant for a home builder, where she grew to love supporting individuals while they went through the process of buying a home. She decided to combine this passion for helping others with her knack for numbers and finance, and shifted gears in 2005 to become a broker in the mortgage industry.
Amanda and her husband love to spend their free time exploring the selection of restaurants in their NE Portland neighborhood, wine tasting in the Willamette Valley, and challenging themselves with a variety of outdoor activities like running and cycling throughout the Pacific Northwest.

“Amanda and Liz made the process of refinancing our home really simple. Their system kept us up to date on the progress of the loan and any additional documents needed throughout the process. It was the easiest home loan transaction we have ever had and the rate we received was incredible.” – Jason W.
“I have gone through a home buying process and now a refinance with Liz & Amanda and both times were a great experience. They are quick to reply and get everything done, very helpful with answering all my questions and I felt very taken care of during the process. Getting a loan and refinance can be stressful and things come up that aren’t expected. It’s important to have help with those unknowns and feel trust with the team helping you. I would highly recommend this team and will absolutely reach out to work with them for any future financing needs.” – Misty Moore.
“First off, I have to say that this team is AWESOME!! Amanda and Liz are the epitome of professional and responsive!!
A bit of background- I had paid off all of my debts after selling my old house, but my credit score was still not where I thought it should be. Amanda thought the same thing and did a little digging. She was able to uncover that I had a medical bill that went to collections during my move across the country, unbeknownst to me. She was able to give me amazing guidance on how to get that removed. Once I was able to talk to the collection agency to get that deleted from my record the credit score went up 100+ points!!!! AMAZING!
Fast forward to actually putting offers in on houses, yes myriad houses! This team is second to none! If I asked them to run numbers on this property or that property I knew that those numbers would be waiting in my inbox in a timely manner. They were there to talk to the listing agents to make sure they were representing us as best as possible. This made a difference and I believe that it was one reason the sellers accepted our offer.
They always had kind, supportive words to get us through this crazy Portland market. Even when we were rejected 4 other times they kept telling us that “the right house is out there and you will find it!” As hard as it was to accept the rejection they kept us going.
Now on to the Corona-virus craziness! This team called me multiple times as rates were bouncing all around once the offer was accepted. They gave me all the information I needed to make educated decisions on the best product. Once I decided to lock in they took over and kept us updated throughout the entire process. Even when there were some things that might have delayed our closing they kept in contact and we were able to bring this 11 month adventure to a close (figuratively and literally!!). I highly recommend this team as they are there to make sure you get what makes sense to you and your situation!” – Michael Langford.
“Stellar service, knowledgeable, proactive, kind, worth every penny (and then some!). We’ve worked with Liz and Amanda multiple times, and each time around reaffirms that they will be our first (and only) call the next time we need financing. Both are extremely responsive and patient, and have helped walk us through the smallest details and the big picture. We’re very thankful to have found Liz and Amanda, and recommend them without reservation!” – Jeremy C.
“We worked with Liz and Amanda over the years and they just helped us again with a Re-Fi. They are extremely reliable and responsive, not to mention knowledgeable. They help answer all our questions and work to meet all the needs and goals we have while going through the Mortage process. They have been life savers in the past and did and awesome job for us again this time. I’d highly recommend the Marre Good Team!” – Tim B.
“If you’re looking for a lender or mortgage company that is equally skilled as they are kind, compassionate, driven, holistic and truly operating from a high level of integrity, then you’ve found your lender!!!! These two gals put the same level of dedication, energy, time and drive into their first time home buyers and FHA buyers as they do high level, vanilla buyers! They make it happen for you, and understand that time is of the essence!!! I can’t say enough about Liz and Amanda, other then I’m SO happy I found them!” – Sandra M.
