About James
NMLS# 400503
Coeur d'Alene, ID

James likes to put himself in his customers' shoes and walk a mile or so in them to figure out their financial situation and find the perfect loan. The 19-year veteran specializes in numerous loan programs, including the Idaho Housing MCC program, which he uses to help clients purchase the home of their dreams. It seems to be working. For the past three years, he has received Idaho Housing’s top originator award.


When he’s not working, he’s volunteering, teaching homebuying classes in Coeur d’Alene. When he’s not volunteering, he’s donating portions of his salary and time to numerous charitable organizations. And when he’s not helping his community, he’s relaxing in Northern Idaho, where he enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, boating and snowboarding.
