20 years of experience in real estate investment and finance - I have solutions for any real estate needs you might have.
Your Finance Resource For Washington and California
A Loan Consultant who cares about his profession - I'm continually upgrading my practice by immersing myself in constant learning. I'm a member of By Referral Only, the CORE, Mortgage Market Guide and Loan Tool Box. All three organizations teach Loan Officers how to elevate their customer service, product knowledge, and professionalism above the "traditional" loan officer.
I always encourage my customers to ask lenders they are interviewing "what educational resources do you subscribe to on a continual basis and for how long have you been involved?" This will tell you immediately if you are working with a professional or an amateur.
My practice is centered around tailoring the right solution to your particular financial challenge. There i
s no "one size fits all" in this business. I have relationships with dozens of banks and hundreds of loan programs so I will always have something that works for you.
In my 20 years experience I have worked with customers from all walks of life - from first time homebuyers to millionaires. All are equally important to me and I have loan programs to fit any need.
Important But Fun!
