Buddy was born and raised in Central Oregon, where he graduated from Crook County High School in 1986. He later went on to graduate from Western Oregon State College (now WOU) in 1991 with a business degree. Buddy met his wife and best friend, Shawn, at WOU, and the two married summer 1991. He and his wife have been blessed with two daughters, Emily and Molly.

Working at Les Schwab Tires for over 10 years has taught Buddy the importance of customer service and treating others the way you want to be treated. Since 1998, Buddy has helped first-time home buyers, move up buyers, experienced real estate investors, and veterans with purchasing their home. He believes it’s a fiduciary responsibility to educate each borrower who wants real estate to be a part of their financial portfolio. While PRM specializes in Conventional, FHA, USDA, Buddy’s true passion is to help veterans in their home buying process, whether it is a Fed VA loan or an ODVA (Oregon Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs) Loan. He is thankful for their service to this country, and he hopes to be a service to them.

As a local Mortgage Advisor here in the Pacific Northwest, his desire has always been to help home buyers discover what their short and long term real estate goals are and do all that he can to help achieve them. He believes that empowering people with knowledge and teaching them how to act upon it is one of the most fulfilling things a mortgage professional can do.

Buddy has built his career upon a continuous pursuit of excellence by learning from the best mortgage trainers across the country. He does this to offer his very best to each client in the areas of honesty, integrity, knowledge, and experience, and to bring value to each person he meets.
