As a loan officer, Chris Whitmire has been with the Diamond Residential Mortgage team since September of 2015. Chris’s solid background in sales, customer service, and his enthusiasm to help his clients, makes him a great loan officer. Chris has a passion to not only provide good mortgage solutions for people but to teach them about the entire mortgage process.
Most of his career, Chris has been involved in customer service in the automotive industry. Chris has also worked in customer service and the world of IT developing comprehensive training programs for a number of national corporations such as Walgreens, R. R. Donnelly Corporation, and Kraft Foods. Chris enjoyed his work in the corporate sales world as an Account Executive however, he missed the direct interaction with customers on a personal level.

Chris and Bill did an excellent job in answering all of me and my wifes questions. As first time home buyers, we were lost and at times confused by certain paperwork. But no matter time or day, even after the left the office; they always answered our questions and helped us thru the loan process . We will definitely be recommending Chris and Bill Lent for mortgage advising to friends and family.
