Jake

I am an Oregonian, through and through. I went to Portland State University, and received my undergrad degree in communications, with an emphasis on media research. I currently live in Tigard with my partner. We have a Yorkshire Terrier named Dante, and a rambunctious cat named Rameses. In my free time, I enjoy playing/watching soccer, exploring Portland, camping, and dinner parties.

I am an expert in helping people find their financing for their new homes. I love working with first time home buyers, because I love to educate people on the process. I came, about two and half years ago, into the mortgage industry.  Starting on the lending side, I knew NOTHING about mortgages.  I loved learning all about them, and now I love to teach.

I also believe that being very fluent in the market, not just mortgage market, helps people understand how their money is being used.  Because the financial market of the world directly affects my customers, I try to follow everything happening in the world.  If you are looking for someone who can talk about the market, I am the one to talk too!

We use green power; we use recycled everything! It is more expensive, but it is worth it.  All of our power we use is green power!  The office is not really an office, it is a family room, and we like to think of our associates and customers as family.  We are not like the usual mortgage company that does a deal, and then never asks, ‘how do you like your new home?’  That is important.

You should use me because I care.  I am one of the most brutally honest people that I know, and I will make sure that everyone knows what is going on in a transaction at all times.  That is important.  I am the captain of this ship, and I will make sure everyone is on the same page.  I love helping people fulfill their dreams, that is what I am supposed to do.  Most brokers do not explain everything; I will do that, and more. I feel that with this HUGE commitment, the person that is helping someone buy a home should be the one that explains all of these things.
