Getting a Commercial Real Estate Loan Near Salem or Eugene Just Got Easier

Dan Lemhouse

Meet Dan Lemhouse, Unitus’ new Senior Commercial Loan Officer

You’ve probably heard of the “10,000 hour rule” that Malcolm Gladwell popularized in his book Outliers.

It (roughly) says that to become an expert at something, you will need to practice it for at least 10,000 hours.

The rule admittedly takes liberties with this study by Ericsson, et al., oversimplifying some aspects and overlooking others.

Still, the rule highlights an important point: It takes a long time to get good at something.

If 10,000 hours helps you become an expert, can you imagine how good you’d be if you practiced 20,000 hours?

How about 40,000 hours?

What if you’d spent 80,000 hours? Imagine how much knowledge you would have, how much wisdom you could impart.


Meet Dan Lemhouse.

Dan has spent more than 40 years helping businesses in Salem and Eugene get the funding they need to turn their dreams into reality. In other words, he has spent more than 80,000 hours helping businesses get the commercial real estate loans they need!
