I was born and raised in Central Illinois with the values of hard work, integrity, and patriotism instilled in me. I moved to Saint Louis after high school where I graduated from Lindenwood University with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and worked as an Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager of a community bank for nine years. My desire to work with military families and my background in finance led me to Veterans United Home Loans where I work hard to help veterans purchase their dream home. My wife and two young sons are my strength and my joy; a true gift! I am an avid archery hunter who loves spending time in the outdoors. As the brother of one Air Force officer and one retired Army Sergeant, I am familiar with and thankful for the great service our United States military members provide to our country.
Starting the home buying process from overseas was a challenge! Veterans United's Chris Primmer and team were a pleasure to work with. From the first phone call, Chris answered our questions, responded quickly, and maintained contact with us through every part of the home buying process. Every team member was patient with us and fully explained every document, dollar, and prepared us for the next step. We love our new home and it was all possible with the Veterans United team!
He was always on top of everything throughout the loan/buying process
Outstanding. Information and advice on point.
Chris was the first person that in spoke to. He oriented me to the process and made me feel like I was entitled to the same level of professionalism as someone with perfect credit.
They worked very hard and I appreciate all of their help. They answered all of our questions and concerns. We were first time home buyers and were building our first home, so we were nervous about what to expect. They did everything so fast to get us in our home by closing day and Christmas!! We are truly gratefull!
I could not be more pleased with Chris and his staff in regards to loan process
Chris kept things simple. Easy to communicate with Chris when we had a question.
Chis was professional and prompt in his interactions with me. He made it clear my business was important to him. He incorporated my requests to distribute costs to account for costs I was being reimbursed for.Similar to above for VU as a whole, the negative I would say is at closing he took a credit from the buyer intended to come to us as a part of the Due Diligence clause and used it to pay for cost that are intended to be non-payable by the Veteran, essentially finding a way to make the Veteran pay for it. I believe this is a deceptive lending practice. It took a protracted uncomfortable conversation to convince him this was unfair to the Veteran.Without this experience I would have said 10/10.
