Anthony Bennett is a true Oregon native, born and raised. He has been involved in the industry ever since he was big enough to carry his father’s tools for the family’s residential and commercial real estate business. Early physical labor led to occasional office work and eventually he started assisting his mother with open houses for the family real estate developments. These developments were located all throughout the Portland area and surrounding suburbs. His early years in the real estate industry led Anthony to formulate an understanding about the complexities that are behind every aspect of buying and selling a home.
After high school Anthony shifted his focus towards marketing and production while attending Portland State University. During his studies Anthony started working in a marketing department with a local mortgage company. He began as an assistant and eventually worked his way up to become the marketing coordinator.

This department also oversaw recruiting and training. During these training seminars, Anthony learned the fundamentals of loan origination and decided to shift his focus towards becoming a Mortgage Loan Consultant.
