About Me

John has been in the mortgage business since 1996 and is very familiar with the Oregon and Washington markets. He has held positions at a wholesale lender, as a mortgage branch manager, and as a loan originator. He also sold real estate for seven years. This breadth of experience helps John and his team conduct smooth transactions for his clients. Recognizing potential obstacles before they materialize is something in which he takes great pride. A diverse background is more important than ever in today's volatile lending environment.

John was born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon, and graduated from the University of Montana. He plays golf, enjoys hiking and kayaking, and loves to cook.
