James BeutlerBranch Manager
My career in finance started when I became a loan officer for a small mortgage company in 1998. Since 2006, I’ve had the privilege to lead teams as a Sales and Branch manager with Wells Fargo, Bank of America and now Primary Residential Mortgage.
Currently, I am Vice Chairman of the Board for the Community Housing Resource Center (CHRC) in Vancouver, WA. The CHRC is a non-profit, HUD certified housing/counseling agency that has served the SW Washington and Portland, OR area since 1995. The CHRC’s mission is to help our community’s families establish financial self-sufficiency through quality education and counseling in order for them to obtain better employment, housing stability, homeownership and financial security.
I’ve had the privilege of garnering many accolades over my career. However, success to me isn’t about awards or accolades. It’s about getting to know our clients on a personal level to better determine the right solution to their financing needs. Success to me is creating an environment that produces a “seamless” mortgage process thereby creating a low stress environment for our clients, real estate partners and our team. Success to me is meeting our client’s expectations and delivering results on time. Lastly, success to me is about creating an exquisite customer experience so that we become your lender for life.
Originally from Kennewick, WA, I have lived in La Center, WA since 2001 where I am married and helping to raise our two beautiful girls and as well as our fur baby German shepherd named Bear. In our off time, we enjoy “glamping” in our travel trailer, hitting the beach, and I even manage to sneak in a round or two of golf now and then. But most of all, we love live music, good food and wine and spending time with our family and friends.
