About Me


Genuine dedication to my clients is the reason for my success and I’ve made some great friendships along the way. I understand very well that the loan process can be stressful. It is my job to avoid that scenario and make your experience as easy and seamless as possible.

My 16 years of experience in the real estate and lending industries, includes commercial, residential, government and private lending. I have been involved in a wide array of real estate finance transactions. My daily goal is to make sure that my clients know that, as their mortgage advisor, I will do everything possible to find the most optimal lending solution for their real estate endeavors. I make this promise whether it is a complicated real estate investment loan or a straight forward, single-family home purchase.

I approach every deal with the same genuine care, effort and professionalism. I have financed deals from $70,000 to $7 million and offer a wealth of experience from my work as a mortgage banker, broker and lender. I’ve built my reputation on providing outstanding service with the highest integrity for my clients. That means you can count on me to always look out for your interests, and to keep you informed through every step of the lending process.


Whether you’re purchasing, selling, refinancing, or building your custom dream home, you have a lot riding on your decision. Market conditions, housing trends, and mortgage programs change frequently. We can help simplify the loan process thanks to a wide variety of mortgage programs, competitive pricing and tailored options. These choices are aimed at making your transaction smooth, efficient and financially sound.

Our mission isn’t simply to provide you with a home loan but to make sure you are provided a level of service that warrants your repeat business and referrals. We understand that all of our success depends on the support we receive from our satisfied clients so everything we do throughout your loan transaction is centered on this very concept.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you by offering informed and practical lending advice. If you have further questions or would like to discuss the possibilities of a purchase or refinance loans in more detail, please contact me anytime, as I’m happy to be at your service.


My wife & I are lifelong Kirkland residents and have the great pleasure of raising our twin boys where we grew up and met one another. I enjoy spending quality time with my family, sports and traveling.

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.
