A graduate of East Carolina, Chris started his career in finance working for a regional bank offering mortgages, consumer, and small business loans to his local community. Chris is a Raleigh Native who understands the unique neighborhoods of Raleigh, while providing excellent customer service with his southern hospitality. Chris and his wife Leigh recently relocated back to NC from Winchester, Virginia where Leigh completed her doctorate in Physical Therapy. While there Chris worked for a local community bank as a Consumer and Business Banking Loan Officer. Through this journey Chris has continually strived to provide peace of mind and engage his clients with an education to understand all areas of their home financing. Be it a first-time homebuyer or a client fulfilling a lifelong dream of a second home in North Carolina’s beautiful mountains, or on one of North Carolina’s pristine beaches, Chris’ attentive ear, ability to fully understand the goals and challenges of home financing, paired with his access to unique lending products makes him a great resource regardless of what stage in the home financing process you are.
When Chris is not helping his clients reach their goals, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their family, a bloodhound dog named Keyser, and cat named Coco. Both Chris and Leigh enjoy great movies, sporting events, hunting on the family farm, and attending track day events where they both race vintage Porsches. Just don’t ask who is the better driver unless you want to start a heated debate between them! Chris also enjoys ACC basketball and football. For more relaxing hobbies, you can find him hiking state parks, spending time down at the beach, or baking desserts for friends and family.
He greatly appreciates the opportunity to work in an industry that provides such a valuable service to the community and looks forward to speaking with you about your home financing needs!
