For the last 25 years, Riley has served in relationship-building roles in the fields of film, music, marketing, finance, craft beer and real estate. Each of these positions had the same goal in mind: Build successful partnerships with each client based on trust and education.

As a Mortgage Advisor, he brings this same energy to every interaction. Riley understands his clients are embarking on an incredible journey, and one that can ultimately be confusing and stressful.  His goal is simple – to alleviate as much as he can through education and transparency.

“I’m helping my clients get into perhaps the largest debt of their life, and it’s my duty to help them manage it successfully.”

Riley is known for his honest, straight forward approach, attention to detail and quirky sense of humor, yet he appreciates most clients who require complete transparency about the state and direction of their loan.

“Each situation is unique and everyone’s circumstance is different… there should never be a cookie cutter approach. I prefer to learn what’s most important to my clients, then help them achieve those goals.”

Whether your goal is to refinance, purchase, build or simply improve your credit and cash flow, Riley will make the process simple, clear and your options easy to comprehend.

Riley graduated from Ohio University and has been a Portland resident since 2003. He’s severely allergic to cats, hates bananas, and loves a cold Oregon brewed beer on a sunny Portland afternoon. His greatest times are spent in the backyard with family and friends, watching the chickens run around the yard, and marveling at the investment that grows right along with his two young daughters.


From beginning to end, Root Mortgage was very informative, helpful and professional. Riley provided us with various options for securing a loan for remodeling and the entire process from beginning to end went smoothly and expediently. The only human contact was with the title company where all approved cautions were taken for safety during Covid-19. The signing took about 15 minutes and the funds were deposited about a week later. I highly recommend Root Mortgage for any of your financing needs.


Riley was introduced to me by a close friend and upon contacting Riley, it became evident very quickly of his knowledge in mortgage lending, responsiveness, and professionalism. The conversation was extremely straightforward and there was never “the pressure” to do a loan. Riley and his team worked quickly and delivered the results that were discussed from day one. From the online technology to review and sign documents, to the ability to execute according to our expectations, the experience working with Riley was superb. I highly recommend to anyone toying with, thinking or curious about refinancing or purchasing a home in this unique market to connect with Riley and his team.


We just closed in our new home in Portland OR and we could not be any happier that we selected Root Mortgage for our home loan. Riley gave us a detailed and very clear explanation of our options and offered great suggestions/recommendations. He was always available to answer our questions and went the extra mile by reaching out to the seller’s agent to ask if they had any questions about our pre-approval letter. Paperwork was easy and straightforward and the next step process made it stress-free. I would highly recommend having Root Mortgage by your side when buying a house.
