Hello, welcome to my page.

Jeff’s mortgage career spans over two decades, in roles from origination to managing and training large groups of mortgage advisors and their teams. Jeff has also owned rental properties for several years.

Jeff chose Borrow Smart Mortgage because he believes that generational wealth is created through home ownership, and Borrow Smart helps him to help his clients reduce the cost of home ownership through education, strategy, and overall cost.

Jeff has lived 17 years in Happy Valley with the one thing he couldn’t do without:  his wife of 34 years, Alison. Together they raised two boys, and now have two grandsons with a granddaughter on the way, and two grand puppies.

Jeff’s biggest “why” is that he cares and wants to help people create success and enjoy the homebuying experience.

Contact Jeff to see how he can help you at 503-805-0991.
