Born and raised in the Portland Metro area, Steve is a lifelong Oregonian! A graduate of Tigard High School, he was very active in sports, and continued this passion at Linfield College where he was part of their nationally recognized football program! After receiving his degree in Finance, Steve spent a half dozen years in sales related fields before embarking on a 20+ year career in real estate financing, including opening his own mortgage company in 1999! After a few detours along the way, and a couple years off to spend more time with his family (Wife, 2 daughters and Cooper the dog), he decided to utilize his knowledge of the local real estate market and set out on a career in sales, landing with The Fox Real Estate Groups at Keller Williams. In his spare time, Steve can most likely be found at one of his daughters soccer games or on the golf course!
