About Me

Paul’s introduction to the reverse mortgage industry was very personal.  In 2010, his mother, a retired nurse, was struggling to maintain her standard of living.  Her social security income and modest pension were not keeping pace with rapidly increasing property taxes and the normal costs of living.  Moving her out of the family home and into an apartment was simply unimaginable.

After helping her to navigate the loan process, the positive changes to her life were dramatic and immediate.  Her reverse mortgage made it possible for her to remain in her home while also having discretionary income to live the retirement she deserves.

Today, she’s a lively 88-year-old, living independently and fully embracing life in her golden years.

Prior to this experience, Paul had spent 30 years in commercial/multi-family property management. Although he loved the challenge of this demanding work, he ‘retired’ in 2016 in order to focus the last chapter of his career on helping others achieve a less stressful retirement through the FHA’s reverse mortgage program. Paul has subsequently assisted hundreds of families in achieving their retirement goals through the strategic use of their equity and deeply appreciates the lasting friendships that have been formed along the way.

Married since 1988, Paul and his wife have two adult children and enjoy sailing, hiking, gardening and making repairs to their 1911 farmhouse.  Paul’s wife also graciously allows him to sing in a band one or two nights per week.

Paul is passionate about serving his community. To this end, he volunteers with North East Seattle Together (NEST), a support organization that offers day-to-day assistance to seniors wishing to age comfortably at home. He’s also offer my time and resources to the Snohomish Valley Senior Center and the Fraternal Order of Eagles Service Organization.

In my free time, He enjoys staying active and nurturing my love for nature. Sailing in the San Juan Islands, hiking in the Cascade Mountains, and fishing in Sitka, Alaska are some of the activities that keep me outdoors. He am also an avid gardener, nurturing over 200 dahlias in our home garden. When indoors, he’s often found penning my first screenplay — a journey of creativity and self-discovery.

As a proud member of the National Association of Minority Mortgage Bankers of America (NAMMBA), he am committed to promoting diversity within the mortgage industry.
