Area Manager for Les Schwab Tire
Three biggest goals: To provide and be an example for my family, be the best person I can be everyday and continue to make sure the NCW Community Toy Drive continues to be successful for many years to come. I feel a strong connection to the community and care about our valley’s children.
Greatest achievements: Would be raising 2 beautiful daughters with my wife Nikki and my career with Les Schwab that has spanned over 30 years so far.
Besides family and his appreciation for the great outdoors; Lane spends all kinds of time doing what he genuinely enjoys – helping his clients through life’s most significant financial decisions. He has been working in real estate for a number of years now and has closed many many.... well over 100 homes and/or properties.
He’d be hard pressed to call it work. Meeting with clients and sharing the common goal of finding what would best meet their needs, is a win-win. Lane is honored each and every time a new client reaches out to him or a referral comes in from a past client.
In terms of integrity, and if he were to rank these characteristics - honesty is in number one; followed by respect; and third would need to be loyalty.
This community he is blessed to live in and work for is the best part for him. He can't say enough about the people who live here and how caring they are. It's why he loves to call it home for sure.
Straight shooter....One of Lane's personal goals is to always "say what you mean; and mean what you say."
