Management Team

Chris Sommer

Chris Sommer has been Managing Director of Hope for Homeowner’s Consulting, LLC since 2009.  He is a Mortgage Broker and Licensed Realtor under Mark Campbell at Tampa Real Estate Services.  With over fourteen years combined experience in banking, finance, real estate and legal services, Chris realized that with this deep recession and housing crisis many homeowners were being taken advantage of by the lenders or those who were attempting to help them. He routinely witnessed homeowners excluding themselves from certain options by working on their own or with individuals not aware of all the programs and options available. Real estate agents do real estate, bankruptcy attorneys do bankruptcy; they may not be not familiar with all of the outside industries available to call upon to assist you in the settlement process.  Not everyone has knowledge of all of the scopes of successful settlement.  Chris realized that there was an enormous lack of good information available to homeowners.  With that understanding and entrepreneurial drive, Chris helped form Hope for Homeowners Consulting by developing an affordable business model that allows homeowners to know and understand their rights, understand foreclosure consequences, leverage industry knowledge & programs, and use the law to their advantage.

Chris Sommer and his wife are proud parents to a beautiful baby girl!
