No Doubt, Chris Should Be Your Goto Guy!

My wife and I purchased our first home this past April and Chris was recommended to our by our realtor. WOW DID WE GET LUCKY! He helped us strategize on how we can compete with cash offers, 20% down, and we closed in 21 days! After we closed on our home we made some upgrades and 6 months later Chris helped us with our refinance to eliminate our PMI. Chris is super hands on, extremely communicative, quick to respond, and an educator. Like I said earlier. Chris should be your goto guy.

Chris knew the answers to all of my questions…

For something that can be a stressful process I would have never wanted to do it with anyone else. Chris is a rock star and is an expert in his field. This was my second time purchasing a home and his patience, guidance and recommendations where what made something that I find stressful relatively painless.

He’s a pro and I can’t recommend him more highly.

Chris is the best!!

Do yourself a favor and work with Chris! He is so knowledgable and thoroughly explained the loan and home-buying process in such a way that I was able to completely understand each step as we went. As a first-time homebuyer I had a lot of questions and Chris was always available and responded in a timely manner. He went beyond my expectations to help us check out all options to get the best rate. After hearing about other people’s experiences buying a home, I know that Chris’s attention to detail, expertise, and communication helped us stay on track for a stress-free process!. I can’t recommend Chris enough!

A+++++++++++++!!

We had no idea what to expect with our first home purchase but Chris had a great thorough plan from start to finish. Whatever arose through the process, Chris tackled it ever so effortlessly, at least how he made it seem. He never let me worry about anything and put me at ease if needed because this process is very exciting yet anxious! I couldn’t be happier with my experience and am so grateful to Chris for working so hard in helping my family get our dream home! Thankful for all the effort and thought Chris put into us and all the updates and being so proactive!! Such a great experience and couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable or more professional lender because it doesn’t exist. Chris is the best there is!

Best House Buying Experience Ever

This was our second time buying a house and working with Chris a breath of fresh air. He made the process simple to understand, walked us along the whole process, and was absolutely the friendliest human I’ve ever met. His knowledge was incredible and he was more than professional. We were able to close on our house in 21 days, which really gave us an edge in this competitive housing market. We cannot recommend him highly enough! THANK YOU CHRIS!

Expert Lender

Can’t emphasize enough how EXCELLENT Chris was throughout the process. I have used other lenders over the years, but Chris stands out easily. He asks for exactly what he needs and does so in a timely way. In my other experiences, I’ve been asked to supply information ASAP – like by the close of day! But, with Chris, it is clear he knows the system well. So, no surprise requests; he anticipates what is needed early on; and, he provided very competitive rates. All of this is perfect for a busy professional like myself. Best of all, he is funny and a joy to interact with. Couldn’t recommend him more.
