About Me

My love for the Pacific Northwest has kept growing ever since my family and I arrived to the Oregon area in the early 1990’s. Today I am proud to call Oregon home for my family and me. Carolyn my wife, our three little ones and I have grown closer as a family with trips to the Oregon Coast, bike rides over the rolling hills in the Willamette Valley and walks along the Portland area to our favorite restaurants and parks.


For the past 16 years I have been supporting our clients of all backgrounds with mortgage financing and guidance. My focus on service and making the financing process a great experience has turned many of my clients into some of my biggest referral sources and I thank you all for your support.

I look forward to getting the chance to meet and offer to help with your mortgage needs.

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.
