I was born and raised in Central Oregon and attended Western Oregon State College (now WOU), where I met my wife, Shawn. In 1991, I graduated from WOU with a business degree and married my best friend that summer. Family is the greatest joy of my life, and I have been blessed with two daughters, Emily and Molly. While working at Les Schwab for 10 years, I learned the importance of excellent customer service and treating others the way you want to be treated. In 1998, I began my career in the mortgage industry and never looked back. My greatest passion is to serve you and to give high-level advice to first-time home buyers, move up buyers, experienced real estate investors, and veterans with purchasing their home.

As a local Mortgage Advisor here in the Pacific Northwest, my desire is to help home buyers discover what their short and long term real estate goals are and do all that I can to help achieve them. I believe that empowering you with knowledge and teaching you how to act upon it is one of the most fulfilling things a mortgage professional can do. My career has been built upon a continuous pursuit of excellence by learning from the best mortgage trainers across the country. This allows me to offer the very best to you, the client, and to bring value to each person I meet. My goal is to earn your trust with honesty, integrity, knowledge, and experience.

It is my 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, my 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. I am thankful for their service to this country and hope to be of service to them.


“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.”

“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.”
