Background ...

With this deep background in development, Chris has first-hand knowledge of what buyers and sellers look for in land transactions. He understands what potential buyers evaluate in site selection to make a particular site attractive AND he knows how to identify realistically feasible land use opportunities to maximize land value for sellers.

A second-generation real estate professional, Chris says being involved in deals that make a positive impact on a community’s growth is what gives him the greatest sense of pride. He continually monitors real estate trends across all land use types to bring these insights to clients served by the firm. “As land brokers, we need to know a little about everything.

Our team constantly stays educated and watches the marketplace to stay abreast of news and trends in retail, residential, office and industrial – what are the new concepts, who are the players, what are tenants doing, where are deals happening? Education is part of who we are and what we all do in this firm. It’s the difference we bring to our clients,” Chris said.
