I help business owners and investors understand commercial real estate and business lending by making you feel confident with the process and solutions. Then helps you apply when you’re ready to grow your net worth.

Because every business owner and investor needs a “Paul”

In the big picture, my business loan was not very large but I was made to feel that I was as important as a major account.

Doing business in certain counties

I help business owners and investors in Pierce, Thurston, King, Lewis, Kitsap and Grays Harbor Counties (WA) who are looking for a true banking relationship and looking to maximize their profitability as well as having a strategic banking advisor on their team.

I partner with a local South Sound Washington State Bank as Senior Vice President to guide business owners and investors by helping them achieve their goals through controlling their business finances, building net worth, and being there as a resource as another person on their team.


Customers that I tend to help the best:

  • Business annual sales from $750,000 to $25 Million
  • Commercial Real Estate (Investor and Owner Occupied) with loan amounts as low as $150M and up to $4.5MM
  • People who are looking to purchase an existing business
  • Business that have been around for over 2 years and with loan needs above $50,000
  • Looking to use SBA Products like the 504 Loan, 7a and Express loan programs

I have a difficult time helping:

  • New Businesses
  • Land purchases where there is no construction or not used for business purposes
  • Restaurants or food service businesses
  • Businesses or investment properties outside of my service area (see map)


Business Owners deserve a Commercial Banker that is a strategic advisor…not just a banker. I believe that having a great banker is often more important than the bank itself.


I provide a hands-on approach that is focused on you and your strategic goals. I like to meet in person at your place of business and I enjoy having strategy sessions to discuss results and goals.


With over 23 years of business banking experience in both small, medium and large banks, I think strategically and seek ways to understand how today’s decisions will impact you tomorrow. I am passionate in helping business owners understand the banking industry and how to get what you need.

I look forward to partnering with you!
