About Justin

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I’ve always desired to be part of a team. From playing sports growing up to getting a scholarship to play Division I baseball at the University of Portland, being on a team has been a huge part of my life.

Those experiences have led me to a 25-year career in sales, sales management, marketing, and business development. As Vice President of Residential Lending, I bring a tenacious spirit, determination, and customer-centric attitude to the table for my borrowers and partners. These qualities lead to long-lasting relationships and trust with my clients.

My team’s focus on service and ability to offer personalized financing options has earned an extensive network of partners and repeat business. Whether you’re buying your first home, next home, or investment property, we can’t wait to help you get it done.

My wife Tiffany and I have two amazing daughters, fourteen-year-old Lily and thirteen-year-old Finley, and our awesome dog named Moose. We love to travel, enjoy all sports, and spend summers in Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Flagstaff, Arizona.
