About Chris

I’m a second-generation loan originator. My mother was a loan officer for just over 30 years, and she sparked my interest in the industry. I started in 2014 originating reverse mortgages, and quickly learned this isn’t just a job, it’s a career. I enjoy working with first-time homebuyers who want to achieve their dreams of homeownership, and existing homeowners who are ready for new purchases or to renovate their current homes.

I make myself available to meet my clients’ needs and answer their questions so the home financing process will be as stress-free as possible. I want them to return to me in the future, and have such a great experience that they will refer both friends and family. I like originating all types of mortgages and am always ready to expand my industry knowledge. I particularly enjoy originating reverse mortgages, ensuring my borrowers understand the process from A to Z.

I would like to manage a branch in the future while continuing to serve my clients as a loan originator. It would be very satisfying to pass my knowledge to the next generation and see them succeed in the industry I love.

Success means seeing your customers through the entire process and sharing in their satisfaction when they receive excellent customer service, even if they don’t currently qualify. Those clients will leave knowing my team and I did everything possible to get them approved and arm them with the knowledge required to get them to a place where they will be approved later.

I grew up in Milford, Ohio and later served nine years in the United States Air Force. I served at several installations as a Security Forces member where I eventually met and married my lovely wife of 15 years. We now have a family of two sons and 3 dogs.
