My Bio

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon Evan entered the mortgage industry in 2002 after graduating Cum Laude from Linfield College with a B.S. in Business & Economics.

Since entering the mortgage business Evan has consistently sought to push the boundaries of professionalism, financial education, and pro-active communication in his client engagements.  Through this approach Evan built his practice gradually and by the end of his first decade in the business had originated over $220 million in residential mortgage loans.

In 2009-2010 Evan attended the University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business and subsequently earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.  With his additional training Evan is able to provide a unique comprehensive financial perspective for his customers.

In the community Evan is a member of the Financial Planning Association of Oregon & SW Washington, serves in various capacities for the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors & Oregon Association of Realtors, and volunteers time to teach basic fiscal literacy classes to seniors at Sunset High School.

Evan is married (to Tina) with a daughter (Addie) that was born in 2010 and a son (Bennett) that was born in 2012.
