ABOUT ME

I've worked in the mortgage industry in a family-owned, operated, and managed Portland-based company, for over a decade. I truly enjoy educating my clients about my industry and the home loan process, as well as the real estate and housing markets in the Portland and Vancouver areas. I pride myself on being responsive and communicative during the home loan process, which I understand can be intimidating, especially for first-time buyers. I will take the time to answer any questions that you might have and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you so that I can equip you with the information and confidence you need to make the right financial decisions for your circumstances.

Call me today at (971) 404-9844 so we can start you in the right direction towards the loan approval process for your new home - whether it's your first home or real estate purchase or you are experienced with the real estate purchasing and home loan process.
