About Rod

I’m a native Oregonian who currently lives in Tualatin. I’m married with two grown children and enjoy traveling, camping, and golfing. Having lived in a variety of places, I understand that purchasing a home will likely be the most important investment of your lifetime. Whether you’re buying your first home, your next home, or refinancing your current home, I’m dedicated to making your mortgage feel like a win.My approach to home financing is personal. From our first conversation to closing and beyond, I want to build trust and get to know you. Understanding your priorities and dreams is the foundation of a successful mortgage experience. I genuinely care and am honored to walk alongside each and every client on their real estate journey. I look forward to partnering with you on yours, too.

What’s not to love about having a space that is entirely yours? You can paint your bathroom fuchsia, have hardwood in the master, put up a wild Mosaic in the kitchen, install a smart thermostat, you name it. After all, it’s your home!

Equally enjoyable are the other personal and financial advantages of being a homeowner: security and stability, equity and wealth building, and more! I’m here to help you get the most from your home financing — whether you’re buying your first home, moving up or downsizing to match your lifestyle, or refinancing your current mortgage.
