Name & Company: Travis Olson, Olson/Waller Team at Directors Mortgage

Tell us about yourself:  As a child, I grew up in a real estate family in Billings, Montana. My father has sold real estate for the last 35 years. Upon graduating from high school in 1990 I attended Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. After graduating I immediately moved to Portland, Oregon.

While 25 years in this industry is an eternity I am still learning new lessons daily! I pride myself on taking these lessons and turning them into opportunities for my clients. I want to develop the kind of relationship with every client that, at the end of the day, they think of me as their financial “physician” and help make their life better.  My team and I pride ourselves on streamlining the process of every client’s “diagnosis”.  Accomplishing this objective is what has kept me coming back, month after month, for the last 25 years.

How did you get involved with the HBF? I was introduced to HBF by Tim Breedlove at Renaissance Homes.
