Christopher was extremely helpful throughout the process of my refinance. Mine was not an easy case, yet he was very persistent in working to find a solution that would work for me, and walking me through the necessary steps. He was a key factor in helping me to secure the refinance successfully.


As a first time home buyer me and my husband knew nothing about buying a house or getting a mortgage. We called Christopher even before seeing a house, and he explained the steps and what to expect. After finding a home, Chris helped us through the entire process of applying for the mortgage. We were stress free! Chris kept in contact through text, emails, and phone calls. We were able to get in touch with him all hours of the day, night, and weekends. He made everything easy, from signing documents, to submitting documents. If you are looking for someone that's great at what they do Chris is who you need.
