Meet Chris

I have been proudly serving the communities of Prior Lake, Savage, Lakeville and the surrounding area for more than 25 years. Put my mortgage banking experience to work, and I promise to deliver exceptional service to you!

Referrals from satisfied customers are a very important part of my business. My goal is to earn your confidence and become your trusted mortgage consultant for years to come.

Communication was key since I was living out of state when purchasing my home in Minnesota. Chris explained the mortgage process every step of the way. He was readily available and returned calls very promptly with answers to any questions. The close process was simple and again, he was there to make sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend him and his team.

How I Work

As you search for information on home mortgages, keep in mind this is a great time to purchase a new home! Mortgage programs and competitive interest rates continue to help today’s consumers meet their goal of home ownership. So whether you are purchasing, building a new home or refinancing, you have many choices!

Helping you feel comfortable begins with sharing my thorough knowledge of what we have to offer so you can make informed decisions. As an educated home buyer, you will be confident when it is time to apply for your mortgage.
