I love Oregon! I moved here in 1996 expecting only to stay a few years. Now I am fully rooted as a lifelong Oregonian and active member of our community.
I began my finance career in 2002.
I am beyond thrilled that 17 years later I still love what I do just as much as I did the very first day that I began.
I take great pride in building solid and meaningful relationships with every one of my clients. I value the level of trust that is built with them during the transaction and beyond. We will navigate the process side by side, working together as a team. It’s important for the process to remain as stress free for my clients as possible, taking care of details upfront rather than at the end of the transaction keeping the entire process smooth and steady.
Upon closing on their new home (or refinance) I want my clients secure with a good, financially responsible mortgage and a lasting relationship with me as someone they know has their best financial interest in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
