Chris Collins

Mortgage Banker

Chris Collins has been in the financial industry for over 15 years, which includes owning his own mortgage company for nearly 7 years. Now that he has combined his company with USA Mortgage, Chris can offer the small personal touch of a family owned business just as he has been doing for years, with the strength and backing of USA Mortgage.

Chris’s business originates from Realtors, Builders, Financial Planners, and CPA’s, but most of all, referrals from previous and existing clients. With his strong financial background, which includes degrees in Finance and Economics from St. Louis University, he considers his clients’ full financial picture and puts them in a mortgage most suiting to their individual needs.

Chris takes pride in overseeing the entire mortgage process from beginning to end. He understands that his clients lead hectic, busy lives and he tries to simplify the process by scheduling appointments around their schedules that many times, includes meeting at their house after work. While many mortgage lenders don’t attend their closings and rely on the title company to close their loans, Chris attends every one of his closings. By closing his own loans, he can be certain everything runs smoothly and, just as importantly, gives his clients a sense of security in closing with the same person they have been dealing with throughout the entire process.

Chris was born and raised in South St. Louis County and attended Oakville High School, which is where his office is currently located. When he isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, playing golf, running, weight training, martial arts, and various other activities to stay busy.
