Get to Know Buddy Puckett, CMA
I was born and raised in Central Oregon, graduated in 1991 from Western Oregon State College, and got married the same year. My mortgage career began in 1998 and I have enjoyed helping families and real estate investors purchase the American dream ever since. My work is exciting and my clients bring joy to my life every day!
While I specialize in conventional, FHA, and USDA loans, I have a particular passion for guiding veterans along their path to homeownership with either a federal VA loan or an Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs Loan.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family! My wife and I enjoy embarking on new adventures, which mainly include traveling, eating great food, and hiking. I also thoroughly enjoy golfing, snow skiing, working out, and playing the guitar.
I am constantly learning, growing, and pursuing excellence to be the best I can be for every client that desires my help. If given the opportunity, I will use my years of knowledge and experience to help you pursue your homeownership dreams!
CLIENT TESTIMONIALS"I have done at least two mortgage/refinancing deals with Buddy Puckett and his team. He takes a holistic approach and asks the right questions to really get a person the right mortgage. I can't imagine doing a mortgage transaction without his counsel." - Maureen B., Google "Buddy was not only super welcoming but he also didn't need me to sign anything right away. I was shocked by this because all other mortgage companies before him had wanted me to sign all sorts of things before even looking at what I was qualified for. Buddy understands business very well and really strives to make a solid connection with you. Very happy to have him as a mortgage loaner." - Nelson A., Google "Buddy and team were awesome to work with. Super helpful and friendly...these people genuinely care about their clients and treat everyone with respect and professionalism." - Gary W., Google
What is a Certified Mortgage Advisor?
Why Choose a Certified Mortgage Advisor?
As a Certified Mortgage Advisor, I have been extensively trained in all aspects of mortgage-backed securities, treasuries, and bonds. I provide a hands-on client experience that allows me to fully assess a client's financial picture, understand their future goals, and design a mortgage product to meet those needs.
Personal Wealth Creation
As a CMA, my role is to help clients understand how to use mortgage debt to build sustainable lifelong wealth. I pride myself in assisting clients in creating wealth and retirement strategies that can help them better understand the time value of money and make sure they are on the right path to reach their financial goals.
You're in Good Hands
I take a customized approach to every transaction. We take the necessary time to educate and advise on the multiple loan products available. After identifying mortgage strategies, we educate each scenario's pros and cons and help determine the best loan option to help achieve both short-term and long-term goals.
