About Steve

I began my career in the mortgage industry as a part-timer in 1993 before going full-time in 1998. I’m always excited to learn more and increase my expertise in the business. With experience in the title insurance industry before moving to home loans, I’ve always loved real estate transactions. I look forward to assisting you with yours!

I strive to educate my clients about the home financing process, including how interest rates work, and what dictates rate differences from consumer to consumer. After over 28 years in mortgages, I’m exceptionally proficient in all products, including jumbo, conventional, VA, and FHA loans. My aim is to empower you to make financial choices beneficial to your long and short-term financial goals.

From pre-approval to closing and beyond, I will make sure you know what’s happening with your home loan and answer your questions along the way. I look forward to providing you with the personalized mortgage experience and outstanding customer service you deserve.

I grew up in Edmonds, Washington. My spouse and I enjoy dining and socializing with our close group of friends, riding e-bikes, taking road trips, and spending time with family, especially the grandkids.
