About Me

I have been in the mortgage industry for more than 24 years. My specialty is in both new loans and refinancing. I have a passion for business based on a personal philosophy of helping and educating people with the one of the most important purchases, their home. I thoroughly enjoys guiding homeowners and helping them achieve the dream of owning their own home.

I grew up in the Seattle area and moved here over 20 years ago to my home in Camas, Washington. When I’m not busy helping clients, I love snow skiing, and enjoy other outdoor activities. Graduate of Western Washington University.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many properties should I look at?

The total number of properties you may look at will depend on several factors, such as your budget and the housing availability in your area. In general, real estate agents recommend that homebuyers look at several properties before making a decision, but there is not an exact number. Most people look at 10 homes, at a minimum, so they can compare them. However, you may find the dream house with more or fewer searches.

What is the best way to search for homes?

When it comes to the best home buying tips, there are different ways to search for properties. Statistics from the National Association of REALTORS® reveal that 51 percent of buyers searched and found their homes on the internet, while 30 percent used real estate agents. Other ways to search for homes include asking friends, relatives, neighbors and homebuilders for help. A small percentage of homebuyers used newspaper advertisements and yard or open house signs to search for homes.

Should I get pre-approval before making an offer?

Although a pre-approval is not one of the required steps to buying a house, it can certainly help you stand out in a competitive market with many buyers. A pre-approval can show sellers that you’re serious and capable of getting a mortgage, so they may be more likely to accept your offer.
