Christopher Rutherford

Assistant Branch Manager at Midwest Equity Mortgage, LLC

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I went to school in Columbus where I graduated from The Ohio State University. I then moved to San Diego in 1999 shortly after graduation and quickly realized my intended "temporary" move was going to be a permanent one. So much so that both of my brothers moved out here shortly after, and we’re still trying to get our sisters out here as well.

After beginning my career in education, I changed career paths and began working in the San Diego housing market. I worked alongside builders and contractors in sales and project management before I was offered an opportunity with an expanding mortgage company in 2006. I have been very fortunate over the past eight years to work with some of the best people in the business since I began my career in residential mortgages. Those people and the work ethic that was instilled in me while growing up, has helped make me the professional that I am today.

Shortly after the beginning of my career, the mortgage industry and our economy, was turned upside down. It was during this time of transition in our industry that truly shaped the way I do business and how I work with my clients. Much time is given to keeping up with guidelines and keeping track of new products to help my clients. The passion I have in helping people and the pride I take in the service I give to my clients, keeps me excited to come into the office every day.

When I’m not playing quarterback for your purchase or refinance, I’m spending time with my brothers and my boxer Cincy. Ever since I have moved to California, I have found every reason to get out and enjoy America’s finest city by running marathons, hiking our mountains, taking in the beaches and experiencing all of the cuisine that our city has to offer. I have taken the time to give what I can back to our city by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and am currently a big brother in the Big Brother Big Sister program. It is my goal to continue to build upon my knowledge and reputation of my profession and give you a stress free experience in purchasing or refinancing your home.  I enjoy doing what I do and I enjoy working with the people that I do and I look forward to working with you.
