I am a mortgage broker, but with a unique approach- I help people find money they are losing, unknowingly & unnecessarily.
There are 2 ways people over-pay interest: (1) over the life of their mortgage, and (2) through revolving & installment debt.
Let's connect, I'd love to show you how to save money and add to your wealth!
Nationally recognized by Scotsman Guide as a Top 1% Mortgage Loan Officer in America since 2018. As well as recognized by the Seattle Magazine as a 5-Star Award winner since 2014! (Ok, Ok, you get it...) Over the years, I have become a leader in the mortgage industry by providing financial education and real estate investment education to my clients. I was an early adopter of using video and technology to make the mortgage process more simple and streamlined. The University of Washington has recognized my leadership and since 2019 I have been an affiliate professor in their school of real estate. I've used my Instagram, Youtube channel, and Happy Homeowner Podcast to help people get the most out of their mortgage, money, and mindset!
My mission is to expand possibilities, and reach out to people who want to learn more about mortgages, real estate, and investing. As a Lead Mortgage Advisor, I will guide you to through one of the most stressful transitions you will ever make in life, and see that you come out the other side of homeownership in a better financial position as a result of our relationship!
I left an exciting a rewarding career as a college professor and college baseball coach in 2008 to pursue a career in mortgage and real estate finance. Many told me it was not a smart move and I'd struggle... 14 years later, it's the best business decision I've ever made!
I've realized my true passion is financial education, Since 2016, my vision has been to help my clients better understand the positive impact of having the "right" mortgage & money strategy. The right strategy and advice helps my clients become debt-free sooner, which allows them to retire well-off, sooner! I believe that retirement is NOT an age, retirement is a number, and YOU are in control of that number!
When I am not meeting with wonderful clients like you, I am with my beautiful family. Supporting my talented wife Jenny (@Jennycookies), she's my partner and best friend. My two children, Ally and Hudson, inspire me on a daily basis to be better and strive for more!
Follow my journey, as I continue to build the next generation of homebuyers through the use of different media channels like my blog, podcast show and youtube channel. My goal is to help you make the most educated financial decision and to help you come out the other side of homeownership in a better financial position as a result of our relationship!
“I’ve built a life and made a career out of “finding a way."
“When I wake up, I appreciate how many blessings I have in my life…far more than I deserve.”
In 2014 I built my loan processing team centered around serving real estate professionals, and finding ways to connect and serve each client at their level. More so, as a seasoned real estate and stock market investor, I’ve mastered the fundamentals of budgeting, money and investing, and I teach those fundamentals to my clients that want to learn more throughout their journey of home ownership!
You’ll see me on stage from time to time as an experienced public speaker and on TV as I am often featured on MSN, FOX Business, Bloomberg TV, and CNBC. My passion for the mortgage industry, in conjunction with my education allows me to lead a team of mortgage professionals in the Northwest and provide financial education at local high schools and the University of Washington as an affiliate professor.
