About Rick Gerkman

Rick entered the mortgage industry in 1999 as a loan officer, and has been with Directors Mortgage for the past 17 years. After purchasing his first home in 1988, Rick quickly discovered the numerous benefits of owning real estate. As one of the original employees, Director’s Mortgage was a natural fit for Rick. Rick has always had a passion for helping others, and as a loan officer, he has the unique opportunity to help others achieve their own dreams of homeownership!

Born and raised in Oregon City, Rick has lived in Oregon his entire life. Rick is a proud father of two boys and one dog, Lily Bean.
