Mortgage professional Chris Nooney has a passion for serving others. From his holistic financial guidance to his mission of supporting local non-profits, he is focused on improving people’s lives. “Our team is continuously blessed,” he says, “Being able to use our business to bless others is why we do what we do.”
Nooney is a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS) and a 22-year veteran of mortgage lending. As the leader of Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp.’s Cypress branch, he serves homebuyers and homeowners across the Houston area, Texas and the nation. He has originated more than $1.4 billion in home loans over the course of his career, earning him recognition as one of the nation’s top mortgage originators.
Despite his professional success, relationships are what Nooney values most. “The best part of this job is getting to know people from all walks of life,” he says. “We are honored to have served over 5,300 families, including third-generation clients.” Many of Nooney’s borrowers are referrals of real estate agents, builders, financial advisors and past clients. He attributes this loyal network to his dedication to providing everyone with comprehensive guidance for both their homeownership and financial goals.
Nooney’s spirit of service extends beyond his client relationships. “We basically give a percentage of everything we earn back to non-profits,” he explains. “That’s what our business is modeled around.” Nooney also serves on the boards of the Christian non-profits The Get Together and SOULWELL Ministries and is an advisory board member of Potentia Workforce, which provides career services for neuro-diverse individuals – a cause that’s dear to him as the father of an autistic son.
Looking ahead, Nooney’s goals for the year are the same as they always have been – using his business to help non-profits while expanding his services to make a greater impact in the community.
