Derek Christina, Loan Officer
My passion has always been to make people smile. Whether it be providing great service or making someone laugh, I always take pride in knowing that I was a positive highlight to someone's day. That is why I strive to do the best I can for the people I work with so at the end of the day, they appreciate my hard work and dedication. As a licensed mortgage professional and a past real estate professional, I strive to meet the individual needs of each of my clients on a personal level, while facilitating the most enjoyable hassle-free transaction possible. I devote 100% of my energy and enthusiasm to what is most important to my clients –offering them all the options available, and providing them with the superior service they expect, while educating each one about home buying and home financing.
My wife and I are originally from Kansas City, Missouri. We moved to Phoenix, AZ after we got married for job opportunities and to escape from the harsh winters that the Midwest is known for. While in Phoenix, I became a real estate agent so I could help people on a more personal level to achieve their dreams of owning a home and to further my skills as a customer service professional. After a few years of basking in the Arizona sun, we decided to move to Raleigh, NC to start a family. Shortly after moving to Raleigh, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl whom now is the center of our world (sorry dogs : ) . I also switched gears and changed from Real Estate Agent over to Mortgage Loan Officer. With having knowledge of both sides of the transaction, I can help my clients better understand the home buying process as a whole and help to educate them on one of the most important purchases and financial investment of their lives.
I am also a DeVry University Graduate with a B.S. in Finance.
