I did a bunch of relatively short term jobs when in and after school including working at a shipping company, a food processor company and a furniture company. Then I did a 30 year stint in the telecommunications industry in the corporate end of things and had enough of offices and politics and the corporate life so jumped ship and am now in my fourth year of real estate. I love this business!

My first job ever was a busboy, then stockboy, selling newspapers, vacuum cleaners as a teenager. I bought and sold cars in high school and bought 2 new cars with the profit by the time I was a senior in high school. When to college and sold cars in the summer, but got fired for selling too many cars!!!

( It's a long story, but the sales manger thought I would run the other salesmen out of town by my success). I then managed the biggest finance office in Oregon, before switching to banking. After 20 years of banking, I became a loan originator for a mortgage broker, and soon realized they were  too dishonest for my taste. I then opened my own mortgage company 15 years ago, to show consumers that there is an other choice between crooked mortgage brokers, who you couldn't trust and banks, who you could trust, but paid for it with higher interest rates. With me, honesty is free.
