Our team can help you finance your dream of a new home.

Meet Eric

I was born in Red Wing, grew up in Alaska, attended college at Vassar and lived in Tokyo for 10 years. These unique experiences gave me creativity, resourcefulness and determination – traits I’ve used to serve my clients well.

In turn, my satisfied clients and business partners have helped me build a successful practice over the last 18 years here in the metro area.

How I Work

Your home finance is a big deal, and I treat it that way. Whatever you need, whenever you need it, I'm 100 percent committed to serving you.

Thank you for your unrelenting commitment to finding a solution for me! Even when there was little to no financial reward for you, you didn’t let up. Your integrity, perseverance and customer focus is beyond anything I’ve experienced in the financial industry. I appreciate your many hours and the creative thinking you brought to my situation.
