Memberships & Involvements

Commercial Alliance of Realtors


After our first meeting, I knew Chris had done his homework, and thoroughly understood our brand and target market. Once we started bouncing ideas off each other, I knew he was a good fit for us. He is very loyal to his clients, and works just as hard as I do. I knew I could call him any day, anytime.
