Nampa, ID 83686
Thank you for visiting my website!
I have lived in the Nampa, ID area since May of 2005. My wife and I moved from Seattle some 14 years ago to be closer to her family and to start our own family in the beautiful Treasure Valley. We absolutely love living in Idaho. It is a great place filled with incredibly warm people, beautiful scenery and great opportunities to explore the outdoors!
My wife, Heather and I have two daughters, Grace (11) and Lily (7). The girls are very involved with softball, volleyball, gymnastics as well as other various activities with our church and community organizations. We love to travel and visit all of the out-of-the-way places Idaho has to afford and have enjoyed some great trips camping, fishing or visiting one of the many natural hot springs located within driving distance of home! In addition to that the girls are very active local musical theater and we find ourselves attending many of the community events put on by the vibrant arts community of the Nampa/Boise area. My wife recently graduated with a master’s degree in school counseling and hopes to work for a local high school as a Guidance / Family counselor. Between all those events, we find ourselves very busy and wouldn’t have it any other way!
I have worked in the mortgage industry for 19 years to date. Starting as a banker with Washington Mutual Bank and working for various banks and mortgage industries over the years. During that time I have been a personal banker, loan processor, loan underwriter, loan closer and loan originator. Throughout that process I have had the privilege of experiencing every facet of the loan process from application to closing. I have also received training through various agencies from Idaho Housing & Finance, FHA, Veteran’s Administration, Rural Housing, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and much more.
I made the decision to join Academy Mortgage in 2017 because they are a national lender, with a very local presence. In Idaho, we were blessed to be the #5 lender in the entire state for the 2017 year.
All of our processing, underwriting, and funding is handled directly inside of my office in Meridian, ID. This type of control from start to finish allows us to create a next-level experience for our clients and friends.
I absolutely love the ability that we have to help people achieve their dream of home ownership! Whether it’s a beautiful new home to raise your family in, a vacation property to make memories in, or a rental property to create wealth – We look forward to adding value and earning the privilege of your business.
