Eric has spent more than two decades in our local housing market. Prior to becoming one of Portland's top loan originators, he was a Realtor and owned a successful residential contracting business. His clients love the experience level that he brings through his understanding of every aspect of residential real estate. That client satisfaction is evidenced by multiple years of Eric receiving the Five Star Mortgage Professional award, which is given only to the top lending professionals in the area. Communication is KEY in a tech-savvy world. Eric's clients find him extremely reachable, and very responsive. In each purchase or refinance transaction, he uses a proven system to keep everyone informed regularly, including the Realtors.
One unique aspect of working with Eric is his use of video. With over 500 videos currently online, Eric is an expert at taking a complicated loan process and making it fun & easy... even for first-time Home Buyers. He loves using video to educate his clients and referral partners on changes in the housing market, and why it can affect them. Finding a loan originator with his level of creativity and speaking skills is rare in the mortgage industry.
One of Eric's passions is helping people succeed with their personal finances. He is a local Coordinator and Leader for Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, and has also been personally trained as a Financial Counselor by Ramsey's top team members. Eric loves teaching others how to wipe out debt, save more for retirement, and give back at the same time. He has many stories about individuals in hopeless situations, who turned their finances around quickly... just ask and he'll share one with you! Eric has been married to Joy for nearly twenty years, and they have two amazing daughters. They love traveling around the Northwest, are all trained musicians, and are very active in their local community.
