About Brad

Choosing a mortgage banker shouldn't be as complicated as finding your new home, but it should be just as important. I want each and every one of my clients to be successful in their home-ownership journey and I pride myself on my ability to guide each of my clients through the different mortgage solutions in order to meet their needs—including helping those clients who are not quite ready to buy a home now.

I started my career as a mortgage broker in 2002 and joined American Pacific Mortgage (APM) in 2012. I bring those fifteen years of experience to the table with each client I see. I'm happy to say that I've served as the mortgage broker for multiple generations in some families. Those same happy clients are the reason I've been honored as one of Seattle Magazine's "5 Star Mortgage Professionals" for 9 years running, and member of the President's Club at APM for many.

This is why I always offer a simple and straightforward 5-minute consultation to learn about a potential client and their needs— I want to be able to work for my clients in achieving the dream of owning a home. One of the many reasons I chose APM is because we willfully underwrite loans up-front—a major difference between us and other mortgage brokers.

Prior to my life as a mortgage broker, I worked in banking as an assistant manager in a personal loans department for 7 years, and I ran a travel agency with my father and brother for 19 years. I'm a Bellevue native and UW alumnus, and I believe in giving back to and creating a strong community. I've been a member of the Bellevue Noon Rotary Club for 32 years and previously served on the Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors for 9 years. I also enjoy coaching basketball, and have coached at every level from the Boys & Girls Club kids' league to high school varsity and select league teams.

I specialize in consulting with my clients about mortgage options in order to meet their specific needs, including:

  • Purchases
  • Refinance
  • Self-Employed/Complex-Income Borrowers
  • Fixed Rate Loans
  • Jumbo Financing
  • ARMs
  • Government FHA & VA Loans
  • Condo Financing
  • Second Mortgages
  • Reverse Mortgages
  • WA State Bonds
