About Chip Briggs
Chip awaits the day Instagram outlaws filters, Zuckerberg takes over Apple, and his "rocket" mortgage finally goes through. He graduated with honors (Cum Laude) from Union University where he played baseball. He now enjoys being humbled by a round of golf on his off days (or on work days if he can find an excuse). Outside the office you might catch him anywhere from East Africa to the bluegrass of Lexington, KY and the horse races at Keeneland. There's no place he'd rather live than Nashville (except the beach) and lists some of his favorite places as Sylvan Park, 12 South, Rolf and Daughters, Pinewood Social, 5th and Taylor, and The Ryman. He even has a horse named after Sylvan Park owing to his love of the neighborhood and friends that live there. FOCUS: Chip's focus is making the mortgage process efficient and painless and most importantly transparent. He specializes in the urban core and the complicated financing and process that sometimes involves. "I want buyers to understand the process, the numbers, and the transaction. That's really difficult in the highly regulated world we live in. It's info overload (or underload) if you're working with the wrong person. I want to set expectations and the customer to have an understanding up front. FirstBank has come up with a process that makes something very difficult not only possible, but consistently achievable - on-time closings and happy clients." BACKGROUND: As a mortgage banker with more than 12 years experience, he's worked with first-time home buyers to retirees and everything in between. He's lived in the urban core of Nashville since 2009 and is an expert at guiding clients through the maze of multiple offers in an ultra-competitive housing market. True to his Clarksville and Fort Campbell roots, he also specializes in working with our military on VA loans.
