Throughout his childhood, Chris watched his mother, Becky, provide mortgage financing to an endless parade of families buying homes in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Becky was one of the state’s most productive and admired mortgage bankers, and her enthusiasm and joy at helping people buy their homes made a lasting impression.
Chris began his career in commercial real estate, working at Central Realty developing multi-million dollar retail grocery-anchored shopping centers. He took his experience to Cobblestone Hotels, one of the fastest growing mid-scale hotel franchises in the United States, where Chris oversaw the development of nearly 30 new hotels.
While he enjoyed the variety and sophistication of the commercial real estate markets, Chris still felt the pull to follow his mother’s footsteps and take on the challenge of building a lending career just as she had done in Alabama. Chris joined Paramount over a year ago, initially serving as an assistant to several of Paramount’s top loan producers, and learning his craft at the hand’s of some of the region’s best mortgage lenders.
Chris has proven a quick study, and his instinct for lending meshes well with his innate sense of service and compassion for his clients. Chris is devoted to providing the best solutions for each and every client, based on that individual family’s needs, and making the home buying or refinancing process a smooth and enjoyable one.
In his personal time, Chris loves spending time with his wonderful wife and two daughters, is an avid St. Louis Blues fan, loves to cook, and is always willing to get involved in charity or community events to make St. Louis a better place.
