I have a vast knowledge of residential home mortgage programs from Government loans (FHA, VA, USDA) to first time home buyers and conventional loans. I have lived in the Great Northwest my entire life allowing me to create numerous, lasting relationships. My customer service and attention to detail is constant. I am also an excellent resource when it comes to refinancing.
My philosophy is simple. Treat your customers the way you would want to be treated when making one of the largest financial decisions of a lifetime. Care and consideration goes into my business approach every step of the way! I thoroughly enjoy guiding homeowners and assisting them with their financial future. I have partnered with some remarkable Realtor partners that give back a portion of their proceeds to local non-profit organizations. My heart is in the community.
I live with my wife in Battle Ground, Washington, with our two beautiful girls and one handsome son. When I’m not busy with clients, I enjoy the outdoors and sporting events.

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.
