Travis Olson named 2016 Volunteer of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland.

Travis has been selected the 2016 Volunteer of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland!

He is a true role model in our company fully embracing our values: Clients, Team Members and Community. Not only is he one of our top producers, but he also dedications much of his free time to philanthropic work in our community. 

This year, the Building Hope Gala & Auction raised just over $270,000, while the Trap Shoot raised a record-breaking $81,000.  “He has been involved with both events as a sponsor, and also volunteers on the Auction Committee.” says Nicole Bailey, Events Manager at Home Builders Foundation. “He brings amazing ideas and energy to the group, and always helps us find ways to make our events bigger and better.” 

“Travis knows just about everyone in the industry, as well as having some celebrity connections. He’s always willing to make an introduction or ask for a favor on our behalf. We are so grateful to have Travis, as well as his team, partner with us to support our mission to provide safe, dignified shelter for those who need it the most.”

Join us in congratulating Travis Olson for his relentless commitment to philanthropy and his local community. We are honored to have you on our team.

Home Builders Foundation Volunteer of the Year Awards Program


“Travis Olson, part of the Olson-Waller Team at Directors Mortgage, has only been involved with Home Builders Foundation for a handful of years, but has made a significant impact on the organization. Directors Mortgage had been a consistent supporter of the Building Hope Gala & Auction, and recently nearly tripled its support of the event. Travis also volunteers on the Building Hope Committee, and supports the Trap Shoot through sponsorship. Every event that Travis is involved with is better for it, which is why he has been selected as the HBF Volunteer of the Year.”
