Don is a lifelong resident of Virginia, calling Reston home since 1974. Graduating with a B.S. in Marketing from Old Dominion University, he also has a great interest in the environment (spending time in the George Mason Environmental Science M.S. program), architecture (working as a draftsman for a Reston architectural firm over two college summers and an engineering firm over one – and still designing furniture and other home projects), and art (particularly European and American impressionism).
Married in 1995 to an incredible wife, father to a pair of wonderful sons, he enjoys spending as much time with family as possible. Hiking, mountain biking, and golf all combine for an active lifestyle. Holding positions in organizations affiliated with the community and kids growth, such as member (1995-2002) and President (2000) of the Reston Lions Club; member of the Reston Children’s Center Board of Directors (2007-2010); Cub Scout Den Leader (2008-2013); Boy Scout Assistant Scoutmaster (2013-Present); as well as various coaching positions, he always has the greater good in mind.
Initially working in a small marketing and advertising firm after college he joined a telecom company as a sales person in 2002. As the telecom industry underwent dramatic consolidation, he made a significant career change and accepted a position in finance with a small mortgage broker in 2002. The brokerage was dedicated to generating high quality loans achieving total client satisfaction while ensuring the team remained fully compliant with increasing regulations. This experience proved to be the perfect training ground to avoid those programs and processes that besieged the industry in the mid 2000’s.
As the decade continued and to this day, he enjoys long-term relationships with real estate agents , financial advisors, and attorneys who appreciate an honest loan officer with a collaborative communication style and the ability to quickly identify the perfect program for every client’s needs. With nearly $500,000,000 in successful transactions, Don brings vast experience in Jumbo, Conforming, FHA, VA, Construction, and various community programs resulting in his customers’ achieving optimal financing. Five star reviews on Zillow and Yelp as well as glowing testimonials on Linked In and here on his personal web page affirm his knowledge and thoroughness throughout the process.
