About Me

Steve is a sixth generation Oregonian. His ancestors arrived in 1843 and helped create the first Oregon legislature. Born in Salem, Oregon, graduated from the University of Oregon. Steve has lived in Bend nearly 7 years and began his love of Central Oregon in the early 80's with his own lumber yard in Redmond.

Steve's career has crossed several industries. Out of college he had his own lumber wholesale business that migrated into electronics where he served as CEO of Vtech Communication for 10 years. Later Steve held an Oregon Real Estate Brokers license and focused on evaluating large apartment purchases for private investors. Most recently he joined Guild Mortgage Company helping people coming to the finest place on earth to live, in Central Oregon.

“Being in the mortgage business allows me to help people build their wealth and help solve problems involved in purchasing or refinancing homes. Seeing home owners get the right loan to buy or refinance their home is very rewarding. Understanding the mortgage industry and helping others navigate all the laws and rules in getting the most out of their financial resources, gives me a lot of joy.”

Steve enjoys golf at Awbrey Glen, hiking, snowshoeing  and flying airplanes. And his dog Oso, The Mortgage Dawg.
