It is an honor to be a mortgage broker—alongside my passions of performing comedy and music under my stage name, Chris Waffle. Always a performer at heart, I love making people laugh and feel comfortable! This job allows me to use my customer service skills and project management knowledge to make every transaction as easy and stress free as possible for my borrowers. I love spending time with my wife Sarah and our wonderfully, merged family of four!
