    Since receiving my real estate license in 1998, my number one goal has been to provide exceptional service to buyers and sellers.   Understanding that buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial experiences of their lives, I am committed to assisting clients each step of the way.  My military and civilian government service, which spanned thirty years, required numerous relocations and has provided me with a deeper understanding of the process and all that is entailed.  With my extensive knowledge of this business I am able to assist clients and help them more fully understand all that this market has to offer.                                                                     

    For the last twenty years, the Andover and North Andover areas have been my backyard.  I thoroughly enjoy where I live and would love the opportunity to show you around the neighborhood.  Armed with a vast inventory of homes and insight into current market conditions; I’m able to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

    Having been around the real estate office since he was nine years old, Chris grew up surrounded by two top-notch agents: his mother and father.  Over the years, he watched as they would meet with clients, market properties, discuss market trends and assist in buying and selling homes.  As he observed this first hand, a wealth of information began to soak in.  Chris knew that this would be a fantastic career fit. 

    “Traveling has provided me with an invaluable understanding of people from various regions and cultures around the world.  With years of real estate exposure and the experience of owning my own business, my goal is to provide clients with the highest quality experience from our first meeting to closing day.  I want you to rest assured knowing that you are receiving premier service.  I welcome the opportunity to serve all of your real estate needs.”
