About Ben

I’ve called Puyallup, Washington, home for 9 years. I jumped into the mortgage business in 2016 to make a difference, helping people navigate the complexities of home financing and make getting a mortgage feel simple. I see real estate as the most consistent way to build generational wealth – and want to show you how you can get started.

When you work with me, expect clear communication, honesty, integrity, and a memorable mortgage experience. We’ll discuss the benefits and details of a selection of programs, like conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA loans. I’ll always be available to answer your questions, and you’ll get frequent updates on your loan status, too. From application to closing and beyond, I’m excited to get to know you and be part of your and your family’s homeownership journey!

When I’m not working on loans, I love spending time with my four daughters and wife at the lake, swimming, fishing, and trying to get my daughters to play golf.
