I have been helping families get loans to purchase their dream homes since 2002. I am experienced in all loan types, including FHA, Conventional, Home Equity, Construction and Renovation, Texas Veterans Loan Programs, Jumbo, and VA Loans. I always find it a rewarding experience helping a veteran with a loan program, serving the men and women who have served or currently serve our great nation. As the mortgage industry constantly evolves, I make it a priority to stay abreast of the changes so I can competently serve my customers. Purchasing a home should be a wonderful experience. My goal is to guide you through this experience with the right answers and guidance along the way. Every day, I help my clients get approved to purchase their new homes; for some it is their dream home, for others it’s their first home, or maybe an investment property. My experience has taught me the importance of being thorough when handcrafting mortgages that truly are unique. Regardless of where you are in your homebuying journey, my team will take the time to understand your goals and get you to the closing table on time. I am committed to the satisfaction of each customer; after all, I rely on you for my future business. My success is solely credited to my customers who have placed their trust in me. I have been honored to be named one of the Top 1% of Loan Originators in America since 2015*, the top loan officer in my branch, and a member of Presidents Club for Guaranteed Rate. In my spare time, I spend as much time as possible with my incredible wife, Amanda and our three kids – Bryce, Brynn, and Breah. Continuing to have a balance between work and family is important to my goals as a Loan Officer and as a dad and husband. Our family enjoys traveling and being active in our children’s school, sports, and other extra-curricular activities. If you or someone you know would like to discover your happiest way home, please give me a call. *Mortgage Executive Magazine

What people are saying
Really enjoyed working with Chris Planto
Michael S. | Sep 2020
I would like to say that my experience with Chris and his team during the process of this home purchase was exceptionally outstanding. Despite the numerous challenges associated with getting things done as a result of COVID-19, Chris had to go the extra miles to provide a viable and timely solution which still enabled us to close as scheduled. FlashClose, which Chris introduced, is a very good solution against the challenges associated with COVID-19 necessary for closing on time. Chris and his team did tremendous job to ensure that the Title company was also properly positioned and set-up to do e-closing. I have never seen customer care, readiness to help and quick turnaround time in this dimension. I thought my first mortgage experience with Guaranteed Rate was the best but this 2nd encounter proved to me that I have not yet seen the best because it was far better in all ramifications. Chris is such a pleasant personality to work with, very versatile, agile, responsive even when under pressure and he somehow have solution to every challenge or puzzles that came my way during the process from start to finish. It seemed to me that he worked round the clock because he always respond to text messages anytime I needed to clarify things even during his vacation. I will also like to appreciate Cara, Taryn, Paula, Tiffany & Rosie (Guaranteed Rate Insurance) for their tremendous support. Good people, Great team..... I will definitely return to and/or recommend Guaranteed Rate for any mortgage need.
