Celebrating our 35th Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that 1984 was 35 years ago – for those of us at Pacific Crest, it’s been a rewarding journey.

In 1984, John Fairchild, Harry Sankey, and current CEO Sheryl Nilson founded our organization as Phoenix Mortgage and Escrow.  We quickly grew to become one of the area’s top mortgage lenders. At its height, Phoenix offered seven branches supported by 220 employees.

For 35 years, our legacy has been rooted in community and innovation.  We’ve continued to focus on products and services that help us put our clients and community first. As we look forward to the future, we are excited to offer the same passion and high level of service for years to come.

Thank you for celebrating this milestone with us and being part of our success – here’s to many more.
