Asher has a strong background in customer service, which suits his outgoing personality and his love of meeting new people. After working in real estate as a client relations expert, he transitioned to lending. “As a loan officer I get to be involved completely,” he says. “I get to guide the clients through the whole process.”

Originally from Anchorage, Alaska, Asher was drawn to Portland for its quality of life. “It’s a beautiful city,” he says. “It offers the best of both worlds with its big-city feel and nature.”

It’s also a great hub, which helps Asher with one of his favorite hobbies: travel. “I love to see new places,” says Asher, who is half Sri Lankan.

After living in Portland’s Pearl District, Asher moved across the Willamette river to the Lloyd District, a close-in neighborhood that’s experiencing a ton of growth. Both neighborhoods offer great restaurant options, but now he’s closer to some of his Portland favorites: Toro Bravo, Prost!, and Tasty n Sons.
