Christian grew up in Southern California, attended a top tier boarding high school in New York, and then studied Economics & Business at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. After graduating in 2010, Christian went on to work at Mercer Advisors within their Investment Operations Team, and then at Raytheon Space and Airborne as a Cost Planner. Both experiences provided him with world class financial analysis and client service skills. After marrying his college sweetheart, Christian decided to follow in his father-in-law's footsteps and work as a mortgage broker. Today, Christian serves as a guide for his clients, bringing his financial planning perspective to the home buying and refinancing process to best strategize on how to structure a loan for a client with their future in mind. Practicing high levels of communication, he knows what it takes to get a loan completed in an efficient and limited stress manner, all while ensuring his clients and colleagues are well informed. Christian is a member of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers and holds their Certified Veterans Loan Specialist (CVLS) certification.
