By education I wound up with a BA in Marine Biology and Environmental Sciences, a wonderful education but limited options. Eventually ending up with an MBA in Finance from the University of Puget Sound. Then along came success as a real estate investor. Once owning over 50 rental units, including SFR, duplex, triplex up to a 12 unit apartment house. Authored and marketed a real estate investment software, back in 1983-86 from Seattle to Australia. Thirteen different rates of return and designed to produce great informative reports. This simply put means that I have a complete grasp of Finance and Investment from the ground up.
Thirty years of real estate sales, brokerage, investment and mortgage experience means that you have a wealth of knowledge available to you. Following the financial markets for thirty years gives one a perspective on history, cause and effect. As a nation we have done things with our financing, wars with no tax increase, great society with no tax increases causing runaway inflation and leading to the Savings and Loan debacle and the Resolution Trust Corporation remind one of where we are today. More wars without raising taxes to pay for them. A sinking dollar. A mortgage crisis, a world financial crisis. And I believe in real estate as a hedge against inflation, regardless of what the current situation looks like.
I started a mortgage bank, United Pacific Mortgage in Feb. 2000 and sold it in 2004. What a wild ride that was! By the time it was over I had created a mortgage bank, had about 120 loan officers, 20 processors and completed about 4,500 mortgages for over $850,000,000 in total mortgage volume.
Over the years we have built up a great web presence which attracts buyers and sellers alike. We know how to market to the Internet (where 72% of home buyers begin their search.
I look forward to your questions and input. It's all about developing relationships.
