About Me

Growing up in Minnesota, Chris learned great Midwestern work ethics. He earned his bachelor's degree in business management, while enjoying playing baseball for The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. He also minored in Office Administration and Entrepreneurship. A major personal accomplishment during this time was that he earned his private pilot's license at UND. He took the skills he learned and used them to serve his Colorado and Minnesota home loan clients over the past 22 years in the mortgage industry.

Aside from his love of sports, Chris also has a passion for travel, spending 6 weeks traveling through Europe, enjoying the many cultures and sites. He and his family love spending time back in Minnesota as well as traveling to warmer climates. Dream vacations involve taking his family to many countries around the world.

Chris and his wife Candace are happily raising their son and daughter in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Chris also finds ways to give back to the South Denver community as well as the world at large through organizations including The Ice Ranch, The Movember Foundation and Project C.U.R.E.

His involvement with Project CURE started 12 years ago when the Founder, Dr. James Jackson, came to speak at his Mastermind Group. The couple of hours he spent with the Doctor changed his life. He is one of the most remarkable people I have ever met and has become a mentor of mine. His story is rare in today's World. If you haven't read any of his books, you should. The Happiest Man in the World is amazing! shares Chris. He has since donated many hours of his time and brought groups in to help sort medical supplies and organize boxes in their main warehouse, attend luncheons, raised awareness, and donate to this great cause in the Denver community.

Chris is also proud to have consistently grown his Colorado/Minnesota home loan business every year. By taking time to get to know his clients and stay connected with them, he's built a great base of happy repeat customers and referral partners. He understands that integrity and mutual trust is the key to a great business relationship. He gives his best every day to open new doors for people seeking home loans in Colorado and Minnesota.  The best part of my job is when I'm sitting at the closing table and my clients give me a heartfelt thank you because I was able to help them get into the home of their dreams or help them refinance so they can save hundreds of dollars a month. To me, that is true success!

Cherry Creek Mortgage made the lending process so smooth and easy. We recently upgraded to our dream home, and never once was our loan and it’s approval something we had concerns over. Chris Lien and his entire team we’re so respectful and always so responsive. We couldn’t be happier and would recommend them to anyone searching for a lender.

Chris and team were super responsive throughout our home buying process and made sure we closed stress-free with ample time to spare. We also heard from the seller that offers from Cherry Creek Mortgage carry a lot of weight. I'd definitely use Chris and his professional team again.

Great team of professionals! Chris has helped me with the home buying process twice and I would enlist his services again should I consider moving.
