On numerous occasions, Cris made time to answer questions and explain where we were at in the loan process. This was extremely invaluable to ensure that we were comfortable throughout the entire process. We cannot say enough and will definitely use Guaranteed Rate again!

Scott H. - Arvada, CO | Dec. 2015

Chris Nelson and her crew made the loan process very easy. I was on vacation for most of the loan application process and had to send most of my documents via my iPhone and iPad. The process went smooth and had no problems.

Steven T. – Vail, CO | Sep. 2015

Lori W.. - Eagle, CO / March 2015

It was originally Cris Nelson, but it was moved to someone else as the loan changed...but she stayed with me regardless. I'm glad Cris Nelson was there the whole way from start to finish!

Kelly A. Eagle, CO. 9/15/2014

"In all the years I've had mortgages and completed refinances, I've never had such an experienced, knowledgeable, friend and customer service oriented representative than Cris! She was Amazing! Cris and the Title Company representative worked well together as a team to ensure it was an easy and seamless process."

Julie W. -- Vail, CO -- 5/2013

I was very, very pleased with the entire process including the ease of obtaining answers to my questions and the availability of either the broker (Cris) or her assistants at all times to walk me through. This was my first mortgage and was a bit daunting to me at times, but the Guaranteed Rate Ladies were helpful, extremely knowledgeable and very, very customer service oriented.

Cris interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
I listen to my clients' goals, both short and long term, to identify not only the best loan program but also the ideal down payment.
How has the mortgage industry changed since you started, and what would you expect in the future?
As everyone knows, the industry has become drastically more restrictive and heavy with regulation. It seems like this will be the atmosphere for some time into the future so the best advice is to not stress about "all that is required" but to keep an eye on the goal and work through it. My team and I work very hard to guide our clients every step of the way and alleviate as much of the work as possible. We communicate frequently in order to keep the stress of the process as minimal as possible!
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
The most important thing a borrower can do is to provide all of their requested documentation as quickly as possible - ideally within a day or two of the request. The initial documents are the most important to pull together rapidly. Every delay will amplify into something more significant throughout the process so being responsive and engaged is the most important thing a borrower can do!
Are you active in any local associations or community groups, and at what level? What goals and/or success have you helped these groups achieve?
I have been an active member of the Eagle County Home Buyer's Assistance Committee for 12 years. It is an Advisory Board for the Housing Department and Commissioners that meets monthly to support local housing efforts and assistance programs.
