Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I have 17 years of experience in the financial industry and have worked as a residential mortgage lender since 2005 in the Portland Metro area. Buying a home is one of life's major events and it's important you choose a lender that is experienced, local, and accessible. I feel doing business "locally" is vital to our communities we live in. I am actively involved with the North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce, Happy Valley Business Alliance, and Cascade Athletic Tennis Club.

At Academy Mortgage we take pride in fast timely closings. We always will keep you updated with the status of the loan process, making for a stress free experience. In-house processing and underwriting enables us to do this and get you on the spot answers to your questions. Founded in 1988, we are the largest private independent mortgage lender. As a direct lender we enjoy being able to control the lending process from beginning to end with no middlemen. 

By educating my customers on all their mortgage loan options, I will make sure you are put in the right loan. I take great pride in helping people reach their dreams of home ownership. 

I have a B.S. degree in psychology from Oregon State University and also played on the tennis team there. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two young daughters, playing USTA tennis, and hiking in the gorgeous Pacific NorthWest.

Was pre-approved. Montavilla, Portland, OR 97213
I have a pretty unique refinance situation and Marc has been very helpful in trying to figure out ways to make it happen for me. Despite the fact that my property is located out of state so he cannot close the loan, he went through the effort to put me in touch with the right people to handle it in Hawaii. Thanks Marc!  MoreLess

Closed refinance loan. Richmond, Portland, OR
Marc has done great work for me over the years. I've actually been working with him for more than 10 years now. During this period he's done a number of refinancings for me. Depending on which company he's with, he hasn't always had the best rate, however he's very upfront about it and doesn't try to talk you into something that's not the best product.

This sort of honesty is both refreshing and helps one to feel secure making decisions that have a large financial impact. Moreover, due to his length of service in the industry he's a good source of advice dealing with everything from inspections to realtors. He's also very good at advising you through the various challenges that inevitably arise.

I wholeheartedly recommend his services!
