Blake came to First Federal in 2017, In his work, he takes care to be transparent in communicating fees and what goes into an initial loan estimate – he wants to avoid any surprises for his customers when they get to the closing table. He enjoys the first conversation with each customer, working with them to figure out each client’s individual scenario. It’s special to have the opportunity to talk to them about their options and help them make life changing decisions. Blake works to establish trust, credibility, and clear communication from the very first phone call to the day his customers are signing closing documents. He makes it a point to be available after hours – and takes pride in being responsive to his customers at any time. Blake is a member of Boise Young Professionals, Snake River Valley BCA, and is involved with Camp River Run. Blake grew up in Twin Falls and moved to Boise after earning his bachelor’s degree at the University of Idaho.
