About Chris Haynes

Your mortgage is personal, and I understand that.

Whether it’s shooting three-pointers, fishing with his three sons, or helping new borrowers structure a loan in a way that fulfills their dream of homeownership, Chris is going to work hard to be sure his efforts are successful. Born in Kentucky, Chris now calls Mt. Juliet, TN home with his wife, Melissa, and three boys, Brayden, Jackson, and Jordan. He loves hunting and fishing with his boys and being an active part of his church family at Mt. Juliet Church of Christ. Chris feels very blessed to have started his mortgage lending career in 2004. He opened his own branch, with his brother Clint, in 2008. Now established in Mt. Juliet and the Middle Tennessee area, he has been running his business and serving his clients and community for over 13 years. In 2021 he joined Preferred Rate which gives him the ability to offer his clients the best financial products available today, as well as faster service and closing times. But because he still believes in the importance of relationships, Chris and his team take the time to try and meet every client and every realtor in-person to ensure they are taking care of their mortgage needs. Since 2008, the branch has successfully grown to more than forty-five employees and serves hundreds of clients each year. And yes, Chris still holds the record at his alma mater, Freed Hardiman University, for the most three-point shots in a single basketball game – just in case you wondered.

Chris and his team are great folks and I trust them. I've been working with Chris for about 15 years and throughout that time, Chris has helped me over and over. As the real estate landscape has changed over the years, Chris and his team have changed with it to help their customers more and more when others have helped less and less. When banks would not process mortgage applications during the 2008 crash, Chris was there with alternative financing when I needed it the most. Thank you Chris Haynes and team, David ... Read More
