These are the qualities I believe in not only as your mortgage professional but in all areas of my life. Over the last 10 years, I have originated several thousand loans and assisted clients with financing to purchase their homes, lower rates or provide cash to consolidate debt. Due to the fact that I have completed a significant amount of loans even in these tough economic times, I have a positive rapport with lenders and other mortgage professionals. I will strive to be the only mortgage professional you will ever need.
I started my professional career in ministry. I graduated from Bethany Bible College, Santa Cruz California, in 1984 with a BS in pastoral ministries. I received my Masters degree in Education from Western Evangelical Seminary, Portland Oregon in 1992. I was an ordained Pastor for 18 years. After concluding my ministerial service, I became a national trainer for Pre Paid Legal, a legal service provider company. My mortgage career started in 2000. I have worked every part of the business from being a loan officer to managing a nationwide mortgage company.
My beautiful wife Lori and I just celebrated 30 years of marriage. We have three daughters, one son and 4 grandchildren. We find the greatest joy in spending time with our family. My wife and I own Mercy Me Ranch just outside of Junction City, Oregon, where Lori is a horse riding instructor and I am the “fixer” of all things broken! We have 14 horses, 3 dogs, 3 barn cats, and 4 bunnies.
I truly believe that if I help others achieve their goals and dreams I will achieve mine as well. I look forward to helping you reach yours.
