Mortgage Advisor | MLO# 229675
I attended Prairie High School in Brush Prairie and have lived in Vancouver for most of my life. After studying economics at the University of Washington, I returned to my community and have been in the mortgage industry for eight years. I take a great deal of pride in helping homeowners through the financing process and have always taken an educational approach in guiding my clients through the maze that is our current mortgage industry. My main goal is to align my clients with the best possible program to fit their financial needs.
I’m very active in several charities in my community as well as a member of the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. Most of my time outside of work is spent with my wife and son. We are an active family and love to boat and travel. I love all board sports and enjoy playing golf.
Mike’s Client Testimonials
My husband and I contacted Mike about securing a loan for a home purchase this spring, and everything about our experience working with him was positive. He provided timely pre-approval letters to our realtor each time we submitted an offer, and when we finally got a house under contract, he moved quickly to help us close on time—in just 21 days. Mike provided us with regular updates throughout the loan process and helped us make sense of the parts we didn’t quite understand, like what our options would be if the house didn’t appraise for the sale price. He is very knowledgeable about the market and walked us through all the decisions we needed to make, such as when to lock in our rate. Mike was a great partner and resource for us, and it made getting a home loan about as painless as it can be. I would highly recommend working with him.
We were totally pleased by the service we received from Mike. He was recommended to us when we complained that our current mortgage lender was taking much too long to process our application. Mike was very clear and supportive over the phone and met with us, at our convenience, to get documents and sign papers. He was very patient with our persistent questions and got us quick answers. He assured us several times that he had everything under control and put us at ease that there would be no last-minute snags. He even came to the closing to make sure that everything went smoothly. I can’t think of anything more we could have asked for.
Mike originally helped my family and I get in our house a few years back, and he was the ultimate professional through the entire process. Honestly, without Mike’s consistency through the process, I don’t believe we would have gotten into the house we did. His commitment to get the loan done at an unbelievable value to us despite things that came up was extraordinary. I don’t normally write these type of reviews about people or businesses, but I felt it was important to let others know how great Mike is at what he does for people. Since our purchase, Mike has helped us lower our payment when better rates came out and answer any question we have had over the years.
