My name is Thomas R. Fitkin ( I go by Tom) and I have owned and operated Oswego Mortgage since September 25th. of 1996. I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon and graduated from Churchill High School (Go Lancers!). Following high school graduation, I first attended Whittier College in Whittier, California (Go Poets!) to play baseball. After my freshman year I transferred to the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) and was there from 1985 to 1989. I received a double Bachelors degree in Finance and Real Estate.
Upon graduation I entered the corporate world, working first for Ticor Title (one year) then on to First American Title (four years). At this time I was given the opportunity to get into this crazy mortgage business and have never looked back.
My true love of the business is being privileged on a day-to-day basis to meet and interact with new people whom soon become friends and clients for life. Throughout these sixteen years I have chosen to specialize working with out Veterans from present to past. While working with these extraordinary people whom have chosen to defend our country and freedom, I have gained as unsurmountable amount of passion and enthusiasm towards helping Veterans.
Outside of work, I believe that family is always number one. No matter what. As a family we enjoy vacationing as often as we can as our hectic schedules will permit. My wife's name is Shandell and we have two daughters, Alannah (19) and Courtney (14), and one son, Jared (12). We are a family of animal-lovers.....thus we have one horse named Rowdie, two dogs (Marley and G.G.), and one cat, who thinks he's a dog named George.
My personal hobbies include exercising, golfing, fishing, coaching my sons baseball, comedy and suspenseful movies, scuba diving, skiing, and hanging out a Allevannas Beach is Costa Rica.
In conclusion, my belief, which I have always preached to my family and friends, is to remember that "if you treat people the way you want to be treated", life will always be abundant.
