Chris is a lifelong New Jersey resident. He studied Business Administration at the University of Rhode Island where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in 1996.

Upon graduation, he began his financial career at Merrill Lynch’s Private Client Group as a Financial Advisor. There he learned his core values of ensuring the client’s needs come first as well as being exposed to real work financial experience.

In 2004, Chris set out into the mortgage industry to provide a higher level of financial knowledge than the industry was providing. By doing so, he built long-term mortgage relationships satisfying clients’ current and future needs.

After 12 years of being a top mortgage loan originator, he formed Forward Mortgage, LLC. which is a one-stop mortgage brokerage for all loan programs. His approach is straightforward and transparent. His extensive financial training and experience put him above his competitors. While at his core, he will always be a loan originator, he now is able to share his expert knowledge and experience with new employees who are now entering the mortgage industry, ensuring every client relationship is honored to the utmost level.

Chris has earned many awards, but his most recent achievements include being chosen as one of New Jersey’s Five Star Mortgage Professionals for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 for mortgage professionals who provide quality services to their clients.

The Five Star Mortgage Professional award program is conducted in more than 30 markets throughout North America. A prestigious award as less than 2% of those selected to be evaluated become one-time winners, let alone for 2 consecutive years, for which Chris has achieved. Chris is licensed in New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

In his spare time, he enjoys taking his family to the Jersey shore whenever possible. He is an avid car enthusiast and can be found most spring and summer weekends, either attending or participating in benefit car shows throughout New Jersey.
