Chris is not your average realtor! After gaining skilled experience for several years as an architect in Atlanta, Chris went full-steam into real estate in 2010 working in sales (residential & commercial), leasing (commercial), and real estate appraising (residential & commercial). Fast-forward ten years and he has touched the industry from nearly every angle. He has appraised over 1,000 properties (residential and commercial) across the Charleston metro area and has been in & out of nearly every corner of town.

His accomplishments include helping multi-tenant commercial property owners regain stabilized occupancy in Atlanta during the Great Recession, assisting numerous buyers in finding the right fit without getting ripped off, and conducting marketing campaigns that result in property owners being able to sell their property for over appraised value in as little as 25 hours. Chris and his wife Brooke have lived & worked in the Charleston area since 2013 and are extremely grateful to be able to call Charleston their long-term home.
