I dealt with Chris for my first time buying a home last year. I have to admit, I was a little nervous and had no idea what to expect, other than some horror stories from friends. But I can't say enough about how working with Chris made it a breeze. He helped me the entire way and not just with the financing, but answering any questions (no matter how stupid they were, I probably drove him nuts!), and really just making the whole process go smoothly. I was amazed at his level of industry knowledge and passion about what he does. Chris made it feel like he was helping a friend, not just processing another loan. It was really an excellent experience for me all the way around and I will definitely be looking back to Chris for any future needs.
We are so glad that we went with Chris to obtain our loan on our first house. We switched to Chris from another loan broker in the middle of escrow, so were on a time crunch. Chris was very speedy, thorough, and proactive through the whole process. He answered our questions, and was very available when we called or emailed him. It was a pleasure working with Chris and we would highly recommend him.
Chris is an A+ broker! He hung in there for over a year with us as we were house hunting, always patient, helpful, and informative. He took the time to answer all my questions, and I had a lot! He was very knowledgeable and I always felt he was giving me the best product available--no one could beat his deal and I definitely called around. He is a family man and an honest man and that devotion shines through in his interactions with his clients. We have refinanced our house twice with him and have recommended him to anyone we know who is looking for a mortgage or refi.
We were introduced by our Realtor. She recommended him for his great VA experience. This was our 2nd time using VA, and Chris was very knowledgeable about VA. We had lost a home, and filed bankruptcy a few years earlier, so we didn't know if we would qualify for a new home. I can honestly say, without Chris's updates, and his expertise we would not be in our home today! He kept on top of the interest rates, and with the market, each time we wanted to put in an offer0he was on top of all our financing. He went above and beyond the call of duty, and for this we thank him tremendously. We have been in our home since November of 2013 and we can't think of recommending anyone but Chris Russo. Call Chris today to get into your new home-VA or not!! Thanks Chris, from the bottom of our hearts!!
I can't say enough good things about Chris Russo at other lender. He took the time to explain our options and made sure that we'd have a home loan would to fit our situation and needs. He stayed connected throughout the entire process - kept us informed and helped us to avoid any surprises. In the end, we're getting our house and a mortgage we can live with!
Chris Russo is a class act mortgage lender! I am a Realtor and have been recommending him to my VERY happy clients for many years. I know my buyers are in great hands when they work with him. They get sensational rates, top notch customer service, strong communication and consistent follow through. He answers the phone when you call, unlike most! He has saved deals for me at the last minute when other lenders have failed. Chris is very conservative with numbers, so if he tells me someone can qualify for the loan, I know he isn't stretching limits beyond someone's comfort zone. This is why he has closed 100% of the loans he has done for my buyers and they all go back to him when it's time to re-finance. He has proven to be the BEST! Even if you already have a lender in mind, give Chris a call to compare rates and service. You won't regret it!
Chris and his team were very thorough and were extremely professional. They made my first time buying a property very easy. They explained step by step everything that I needed to do and were exceptionally prompt in their replies. Chris was more than willing to take time to work with me, offer a variety of options and loan arrangements until we found the one that was right for me. The loan closed on time and I would strongly suggest anyone who is looking for a home for the first time give him a call.
We refinanced with Chris and his team recently. They did a great job of being prompt and professional. They specifically did a fantastic job of walking us through the process and explaining all the different ins and outs. The whole thing was way easier than I expected it to be. These guys seemed to really be on top of their stuff and I would definitely use/recommend them in the future.
My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Chris Russo! His knowledge, attentiveness, patience, and honesty made our loan process painless! We were referred to Chris by a friend who had worked with him on numerous occasions. We also checked with multiple other lenders as well, but Chris offered us the best loan package; and in the end, he came through with everything that he promised! Chris is very personable and easy to work with. We highly recommend Chris Russo and his team!
My wife and I recently enlisted Chris Russo and his teams’ services to secure financing for our first home together. Not only was Chris and his team efficient, responsive and very knowledgeable…Chris personally went out of his way to accommodate our short escrow timeline and was able to work around our being out of town on our honeymoon. As a fellow real estate professional, I think I can also say that in a market like San Diego that you need quick answers and approvals in order to stay competitive as a buyer. Chris absolutely answered the call and accommodated our every need. We hope to use him in the future and highly recommend his services!
