Get to Know Don McPherson, CMA
I joined the PacRes team in December 2009 and am a Certified Mortgage Advisor. I have more than 16 years of experience in the mortgage industry and I want to use my knowledge and expertise to help you pursue your financial goals.
Licensed to serve you in Oregon and Arizona, I take the time to explain the mortgage process in simple terms, listening closely to your unique needs to help you find a mortgage solution that is custom-fit for your life.
I was raised as the eldest of five on a small farm in Canada and served in the U.S. Navy for four years. These experiences taught me the value of hard work and the importance of putting relationships first.
Outside of the office, I treasure time with family, including my adult child and granddaughter. I also enjoy swimming, traveling, spending time outdoors, and volunteering for nonprofits, including for an organization that mentors youth in the Salem, Oregon area.
I am lucky to spend my days helping clients like you reach their goals--if you're ready to take the next step in your homebuying journey, let's work together to make your dream come true!
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.

Across the street, the Westgate Entertainment District is anchored by the Gila River Arena, home to the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. Near the heart of the city, the Arizona Doll & Toy Museum shows off antique dolls, figurines, and dollhouses, including a doll that is older than the United States.
For outdoor offerings, head to the Thunderbird Conservation Park, a more than 1,100-acre preserve with trails for horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking. Nearby, visit Wet ‘n’ Wild Phoenix, the state’s largest theme park.
With a gilded pioneer atop its State Capitol building, Salem sits at the heart of the Willamette Valley, offering an historic downtown and a vineyard-covered countryside.
Salem is home to shopping centers, a Riverfront Carousel, and Willamette University. It also has a rich cultural scene, with movies and music at Elsinore Theater and an annual World Beat Festival, organized by the Salem Multicultural Institute.
Nearby, the Enchanted Forest features fairytale fun for the family. In the summer, beat the heat at Walter L. Wirth Lake or play disc golf at Cascades Gateway Park.
