Chris was very knowledgeable and personable with us. He gave us a few different options and explained each option. Chris took the time to text us when we were emailed to be sure we didn’t have any questions! Wonderful experience!

I have used Chris several times now. He's professional as always and has been able to answer any questions I have. Chris has a lot of knowledge and ideas that definitely help explore options to buy the house of your dreams. Thanks, Chris for working patiently with us. Will definitely use again.

Lake Charles, LA Review -Kane W.

Chris was an absolute blessing with this whole refinancing process. We had delay after delay due to personal situations and then the recent hurricanes, but Chris took care of us through it all. He explained every part of the process in a way we could understand and took care of everything we needed. I highly recommend using him for any financing needs!

  • VA loans – Designed for veterans and military members, these mortgages require no down payment at all. Some military family members may also be eligible.
  • USDA loans – These loans require no down payment and can be used to purchase property in designated rural areas. They’re backed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
