Q&A with Michael
Where is your favorite place in town to eat, and what do you get there?
I love Amaro’s Table in downtown Vancouver and my wife and I probably eat there a little too often. However, if we have our two young daughters with us we typically choose Red Robin for its bottomless fries and unbeatable crayon selection.
What does your dream Saturday look like?
My dream Saturday begins with having coffee with my wife in the morning. By the middle of the day, we would get together with some friends for volleyball at a local park. The day would end back at our place with friends and family for a barbecue and an outdoor fire.
What draws you to the lending industry?
Buying or refinancing a home is among the largest financial decisions an individual or family will make. I get excited about the prospect of helping clients get excellent loan terms that will make a real difference in their lives. For clients who are newer to the home buying /refinancing process, I love that I can provide actionable steps to improving credit and lendability. Finally, I get very excited about finding creative solutions to get a client into their dream home or getting the refinance terms that help them achieve their financial goals.
Who is your hero, and why?
My hero is my Dad. He is impossibly kind, patient, and gracious. I love him dearly and aspire to be like him in so many ways.
