Dan Summerfeldt, Mortgage Advisor
Who is “Dan the Mortgage Man?”
Hi, I’m Dan Summerfeldt, and in 1992 I began helping individuals, families, and businesses as a financial planner. A few years later, my business partner and I purchased one of our client’s businesses, a growing portable toilet company in Alaska. I traded by business suit for coveralls and soon earned the nickname “Rent-a-Can Dan.” My wife was relocated to Portland, Oregon in 1998 and as I transitioned to a new life in the Pacific Northwest, I was encouraged to return to financial advising where I fell in love with helping people with mortgage planning. Since then, I’ve focused exclusively on helping people purchase or refinance their homes, earning me the new nickname of “Dan the Mortgage Man.” It’s by combining the skills learned from the times I wore the fancy business suit, and the times I was running our business, knee deep in…(you know), that gives me the creativity, determination, and the financial background necessary to help my clients understand and secure the best fit for their lending needs.
Sometimes this even means counseling our clients to wait until they are in a better situation to make a change, or supporting them with sticking with their current loan makes the most sense. We have the flexibility to offer a variety of lending solutions including Conventional, VA, USDA, and FHA. We also have the confidence and determination to offer reassurance and expertise in more challenging loans, including opportunities for self-employed borrowers, manufactured homeowners, and for homeowners, or their families considering a reverse mortgage.
I am committed to lending solutions that are sustainable for my clients to ensure life long trust based relationships. I look forward to the opportunity to help you through the lending process, or help you confirm you are already headed in the direction that best meets your needs. Cheers!
