NMLS#2249731

Chris is originally from Australia. Chris completed a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Australia with double majors in Legal Studies and Accounting. He then spent several years traveling around the world as an athlete representing Australia in the sport of fencing. At the same time, Chris worked in the airline industry as an International First-Class Flight Attendant, refining his talent for helping people and providing outstanding customer service. Like many Aussies, Chris enjoyed his adventures traveling around the world, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. One of the biggest lessons learned from his travels though is the importance of having a place to call home.

Chris brings over 25 years of business acumen and real-life knowledge to the role of Mortgage Banker. The common factor in all his professional experience is earning his clients’ trust and ensuring they know he always has their best interests at heart. Chris knows how daunting, complicated and confusing the loan process can seem, simply because he has experienced the process several times himself, buying, selling and re-financing his own homes in Australia as well as the U.S. Chris promises to always put his customers first.

Chris currently resides in Arlington, Virginia. Growing up in Australia, Chris developed a love of the great outdoors. When not working, weather permitting, you will likely find him soaking up the sun’s rays by a pool, kitesurfing at the beach, or playing a friendly round of golf with his mates.
