Chris Nagle Stays In Wilmington But Moves To Movement Mortgage - Movement Mortgage Blog

WILMINGTON, NC — Movement Mortgage, the nation’s sixth-largest retail mortgage lender, is excited to announce the addition of Loan Officer Chris Nagle to its team serving the South Atlantic Region, including metropolitan Wilmington.

Nagle (NMLS #114191) brings with him 16+ years of home financing experience, having most recently served homebuyers and real estate agents as VP of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate and as a loan officer at Alpha Mortgage, both in the Wilmington area.

“I moved down to North Carolina from Rochester, NY in 1996 to attend college,” says Nagle. “After graduating, I started working in the auto industry, and by 2006, I was married with a young family. I decided to try out the mortgage business as it offered more flexibility. That was a big leap as I didn’t have any prior training in finance or mortgage. I had to learn the industry from scratch.” 

The local contacts Chris made in the industry led him to explore an opportunity at Movement Mortgage. “The Movement culture, vision and mission really resonate with me,” he said. “I think it’s so forward-thinking for a company to dedicate so much of their profit to charity and foundations. Truly amazing! And the overwhelming genuine support of the leadership to help Movement employees grow is just awesome.”

“Over the last sixteen years, Chris has built a loyal business network with top real estate agents in our market, so we’re excited that he chose Movement to grow his business to the next level,” says Market Leader for Eastern North Carolina, Daniel Cain (NMLS #186496). “Chris is without a doubt one of the most trusted mortgage professionals in our industry.” 

A graduate of UNCW, the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Nagle is licensed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Michigan, but focuses on the Wilmington area. That’s where he and his wife of 20 years live with their three children and a Shih Tzu. When not working, Nagle travels for kid’s sports events — soccer, volleyball, cheerleading and tennis. The family is also big on boating and the beach.
