Steamboat Springs CO, April 12, 2022 — 20-year mortgage veteran Chris Magnotta announced at the beginning of this year that he has joined Elevate Home Loans, a division of NFM Lending.  His branch specializes in residential mortgage lending for the mountain communities, along the Front Range and throughout Colorado.

Magnotta’s reputation among clients and business partners has led him to become one of the top mortgage consultants in the nation. National mortgage publications Scotsman Guide and Mortgage Executive Magazine have recognized him as among the top 1% of mortgage lenders in the country six years in a row. In addition, he was voted a “5 Star professional” by 5280 Magazine from 2011-present and has over 100 5-star reviews on Google.

The chance to join the newly-formed Elevate Home Loans was an easy decision. “I chose Elevate Home Loans to ensure I can be my client’s lender for life,” said Magnotta. “The energy and passion of this new venture, backed by the financial power of a national company like NFM Lending gives me a unique opportunity to offer my clients and real estate partners some of the best products and services available.”

A well-known and respected pillar of the community, Chris obtained his master’s degree in Business/Finance from the University of Colorado and has been recognized in the Wall Street Journal as a Colorado industry expert.

Magnotta will focus on expanding Elevate’s flexible and powerful lending platform to better serve Steamboat Springs’ community families with exceptional customer service. The branch’s goal is to continue to provide the same commitment and dedication to borrowers, ranging from first-time homebuyers to seasoned buyers looking for their next home, a second home, or investment properties. Elevate Home Loans offers Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, FNMA, Jumbo, and many other loan options to fit every borrower’s need.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys skiing, cycling, and hockey. He lives with his wife Sara, daughter Lucia, and twins Jace and Siena.
