Ask A Mortgage Question


Started in the business fresh out of college (undergrad in accounting and marketing) from Kent State in 2004. Learned the systems of mortgage/sales, even worked as an underwriter and then built my own franchise in 2013. We serve anywhere from the first time homebuyer unaware of all options they qualify for to the experience real estate investor. We also have a program called Fast Pass which removes all loan contingencies subject to a clean appraisal and title. It is stellar in a sellers market where there are multiple offers on the table

About Christopher Zurawski

         I am a Cleveland native, a father of five, and a military Veteran. I know there is no greater place than Cleveland to raise a family and enjoy a diverse and active lifestyle. I graduated from Saint Ignatius, went to VMI, and earned my EMBA at Ohio State. After VMI, I served in elite Army units.

         I have over five years in Real Estate and my team believes in placing the client’s needs first and foremost. The emphasis is on finding the home you love while having the best experience. We have been very successful doing this by listening to our clients so your life is stress-free. Our team is certified in Military and Corporate Relo. We are small business owners, entrepreneurs, and local investors that believe in giving back so we serve the community. We are advisors to real estate investment firms and local area developers as well. These attributes will help serve you with all your real estate needs.

      Real estate is an adventure and a way to help people achieve their goals. It can be choosing the home of their dreams, finding a home base for a few years or an investment with the right cap rate, the goal is still happiness. Everyone is different and everyone is special and they deserve to be treated that way. I will ensure this happens and their transaction is professional, seamless and stress-free.


       I grew up in the area and this gives me an advantage. After taking the time to know the client’s needs, I tailor the search and the transaction to match the personality, hobbies/interests and lifestyle so the home becomes the perfect fit.
