My Background

Chris Hagains, PhD 

As a New York Life Agent, I sincerely believe that most people want to do what's right: right for themselves, right for their families, and right for their communities. In fact, that's one of the reasons I joined the company back in 2016. After 10 years working as a scientist, I wanted my career change to be an opportunity to work somewhere that makes it easy for other people to do what is right, and more importantly, make it easy for me to do right by them.

You can take comfort in the fact that I have been a proud resident of the DFW community for over 20 years, and therefore have a vested interest in seeing my friends and neighbors succeed. As a loving father to a teenager, I have many of the same hopes and aspirations as my clients and am happy to share with you all the resources and information New York Life has to offer.

Depending on your needs, I can introduce you to some ways to help protect your family's lifestyle and future; or prepare for major financial events such as paying for college, saving for retirement, or caring for an aging relative. If you're wondering about my qualifications, you might find it reassuring to know that I am a licensed agent to sell insurance through New York Life Insurance Company. In addition to my 3 years of experience, I hold a PhD from the University of Texas at Arlington and have participated in New York Life's well-known training program, NYLIC University, and have been awarded Executive Council1 in 2017 and 2018, MDRT membership2 2017. Additionally I was awarded Life Production Leader as part of the 2017 Executive Council Meeting.

Of course, my background isn't really the one that matters. To be the best possible agent, I've found that getting to know my clients – their hopes, dreams and goals for the future – is the most important first step. So if you're looking for someone that's ready to put their expertise and experience to work for you, please let me know.

Neither New York life Insurance Company, not its agents provide tax, legal or accounting advice. Please consult your own tax, legal, or accounting professionals before making any decisions.
