What to expect
We understand that purchasing a home is one of the biggest purchases in a lifetime. We've streamlined our process to ensure that the experience of obtaining your mortgage is as smooth and stress-free as possible. Typically, once the loan documents are signed and delivered back to us, you’ll receive your funding in 5 to 7 days!
Why we should work together
Mark is an amazing loan officer. He brings a wealth of knowledge and industry experience. Mark has helped my family with 5 transactions (Purchase, New Construction, Refi). We have recommended Mark to our immediate family and friends on multiple occasions.
Mark has helped me on multiple occasions through my financing, and re-financing over the years. He is a very proactive “get it done” type of guy. Mark is also very honest and stays in close contact with you through the lending process, as we all know it can get very stressful. I wouldn’t use anyone else for this type of service, and obviously...highly recommend.
A native of Monroe, Louisiana, I moved to Portland, Oregon in 1971 and then to the Seattle area in 2002 where I started my career in the mortgage industry. With over 18 years of experience, I love seeing the excitement that my clients have when they become home owners, especially first-time home buyers. I want people to be able to trust me, and I want to be seen as a person who has good morals, integrity, and respect for the people around me. I have a genuine sense of care for my clients, which is why I am dedicated to being a partner in their home buying experience. I always put my clients first to ensure that I get the job done.
In my free time, I love to golf and fish. I also love spending quality time with my wife, Jaimie, our two young daughters, and our two labs Hank and Thumper.

Mark is the best, as well as trust worthy and reliable. We have worked with him on the purchase of both our homes, as well as multiple refinances, and he has been absolutely great! He has always kept us up to date on changes or things we need to be aware of, as well as helping us get through a stressful time! I would recommend him to anyone needing help with a loan.

Mark goes above and beyond! He is quick to address questions and provide help along the way. Very satisfied with our refi process. We previously worked with Mark on our original mortgage as well.

As soon as I reached out to Mark about refinancing my condo he's was on top of it the whole time. He made the whole process extremely easy and answered all the questions I had. After the loan was signed I still had some issues with my escrow from my last lender and Mark stuck with me offering advice and randomly checking in until the whole process was complete. I will highly recommend Mark to any friends looking for a mortgage or refinancing without hesitation.

We've used Mark for our original loan as well as our refinance. He's great to work with and very professional. He is also very thorough and detail oriented. Highly recommend.

Mark was prompt and guided us through each step. He was extremely patient and was able to help us through each step. No matter how many times I go through this, I am always at a lost and Mark helped make each step easy and quick.

Mark did an outstanding job with us during our refinance. He was patient, always available, friendly, and very knowledgeable. He walked us through each step of the way in detail and communicated very well.

Mark made our loan process easy and stress free! He was very prompt to respond to any correspondence, and very professional. Mark helped us do a HELOC to allow us to pay our credit cards off, and set us up with the best interest rate for a mortgage for our dream home. We are excited to use Mark again as we purchase our dream home!
Chris Mathias from Snoqualmie , WA via Zillow
Working with Mark was a great experience. His knowledge of HELOC process was very deep which allowed us to feel comfortable throughout our process. His communication was beyond what I expected. He was available whenever we needed him and he provided updates multiple times per week so we weren't left wondering what was happening with our loan. Mark made it seem like our loan (even though not a comparatively big amount) was his #1 priority. I will definitely work with Mark again for future mortgage/loan needs!

Let me tell you, as a first time home buyer you would be hard pressed to find a better lending agent than Mark. He was attentive to every possible need or question I had. Getting a mortgage is a daunting process and he was able to break it down into simple and manageable steps. Could not recommend more!
