As a native of the Pacific Northwest, I moved to the Coeur d’Alene Area in 1996. My wife, Marissa, and I have been blessed to raise our three daughters Jane, Elizabeth and Emma here along with our three pugs. We love to enjoy all of the beauty that this area has to offer from camping, boating, swimming, skiing, and my personal obsession, mountain biking!
My philosophy is simple: to approach each relationship with a servant’s heart. This principle has guided me since I originally started in mortgage lending in 2009 and over my 22-year career in high-finance. I pride myself on being a great communicator, a source of wisdom and experience, detail oriented and passionate about exceeding expectations.
I’m so grateful to be part of the Mountain West Bank team. We are a longstanding local bank with deep roots in our community and offer something for everyone in the areas that we serve. From conventional, FHA, VA, USDA to customer construction and land, we have all of the bases covered.
I look forward to being your partner in this exciting world of real estate and hope to help your dreams come true.
