BIO: Mike is a native Oregonian who has lived in Central Oregon for 22 years – and wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else.Mike has been a residential mortgage lender for more than a decade, and even though the last few years have brought plenty of challenges to the industry, Mike still loves being in the biz. There’s no greater professional thrill than the moment he closes on the purchase of a home and sees the smiling faces of the new home owners. It’s just so satisfying to be part of that.
Mike has a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from the University of Washington and a Master’s Degree in Television from Syracuse University. Before getting in mortgage lending Mike worked in television news as a reporter and anchor – a job that opened up all sorts of amazing opportunities and satisfied his “thirst for knowledge” on a daily basis. Many of his experiences have carried over and help Mike be a better Mortgage Banker every day.
Mike has been married since 1997 – He met his wife, Maggie, in Bend back in 1993. They have two children – nine-year-old daughter Mia and six-year-old son Noah. The whole family loves to take part in all the activities of a “traditional” Central Oregon lifestyle: skiing, bike riding, hiking, tennis and enjoying all the community events of this wonderful area. Besides family, Mike’s other great personal passions are reading and traveling. Mike has been fortunate to see dozens of countries across the globe and almost every state in America, and he tries to share that interest with his children at every opportunity.
