About Cristian

I’ve been working in the mortgage industry since 2015, when I started at a big bank. I’ve stayed because I enjoy helping people achieve their homeownership dreams. From pre-approval to closing and beyond, I will make sure you always know what’s happening with your mortgage and make myself available to answer your questions along the way.

As a proud Veteran, I specialize in educating other Military Members about how to use their VA home loan benefit. The process isn’t more complicated, just different. We’ll begin by assessing your goals and priorities, then we’ll confidently navigate your path to a successful closing.

Sharing information is just as important as listening, and communication is key. I offer a wide range of mortgage programs, from conventional and jumbo to FHA and USDA. Together, we’ll find the one that meets your individual needs.

I was born in Los Angeles but spent my childhood in Las Vegas and went to school there. Hiking and exploring add to my love of the outdoors, and I’m married with two young daughters. The importance of family has shown me that having the right resources leads to better solutions.

I look forward to growing my team so we can continue to deliver the memorable mortgage experience you deserve from your lender. I’ll be honored to be by your side during your home financing journey.
