About Ron

I  bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from my extensive financial, marketing and investment real estate background to the mortgage industry.   I started my career in 1975 with General Motors Acceptance Corporation doing everything from Credit Representative, Customer Relations Supervisor, Dealer Relations Supervisor, Sales Supervisor, Branch Leasing Coordinator, and Sales Manager.  In 1991, I ventured into the mortgage industry, first specializing in residential loans...then working on commercial loans alike. Currently, I am licensed by the State of Washington, Department of Financial Institutions for mortgage loans as well as an Instructor for Continuing Education for Real Estate Consultants.

Current certifications include:

  • Certified by State of Washington to instruct continuing education through Professional Directions Real Estate School.
  • Certified by the U.S. Armed Forces to Instruct Human Resource Courses.
  • Neighborhood Lending Certification from Bank of America.
  • Certified Military Housing Specialist through The USA CARES Military Housing Education Program.

In addition to my certifications, I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Business Administration from Seattle University, and I am a Retired Army veteran with 35 years of service.

Among  my peers, I am  known for my creative and caring approach that allows my clients to refinance or purchase their dream home, along with finding funds to live their dream lives. You can count on my sense of passion for all customers, the willingness to create positive change for our community, and a desire to be a role model for our industry, which I serve with pride.

Whether your loan is for home improvements or to purchase the home of your dreams,  I value your business. You can count on me to have your interests at heart. I look forward to the opportunity to assist you.
