Get to Know Chris

As a local resident since 1992, I have a deep love for the community and its neighborhoods. I approach both life and work with sincerity, honesty, and compassion. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than our clients having positive and rewarding real estate experiences.

Having been involved in real estate with my family's business since I was nine, I have been helping people in a professional capacity to buy, sell and build homes since 2009. With a background in marketing and finance, I have a thorough understanding of the Andovers real estate market and know what it takes to champion my clients' needs.

Whether you’re moving to the area or relocating to another, I can help you price property, negotiate deals, qualify buyers, acquire financing, find contractors, shoot vibrant compelling marketing media and more.

Happy Clients

"We had a great experience with Chris. His local knowledge of the real estate market and professionalism played a key role in correctly pricing and selling our home with as little heartache as possible. We strongly recommend using Chris and the Papineau Team when selling or buying your home." - Molly Koskores, Andover

"Chris helped us sell our home in North Andover. Chris was very professional from the get-go, organized, knew the process, the steps and was able to guide us through it with ease. Communicated via text w/ us which was a big plus for us, always available to answer our questions. Young and energetic, he kept things moving at all times and was backed by the Papineau team when he was unavailable - it was great working with them." - Rakesh Godhani, North Andover

"Chris is a consummate professional who is well-skilled in all areas of representing buyers and sellers. His attention to detail, from recommendations for preparing your home for sale, marketing suggestions (and data, data, data!), and support throughout the process will ease your mind and result in a smooth and successful transaction. You will not be disappointed." -Gretchen Hardy, Haverhill

"Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. On day one I was very blunt about what my family needed from a real estate agent. He delivered on exactly what we asked for. He was quick to respond, quicker to act and was diligent on fighting for our needs. He was always available and went above and beyond to get showings on the books that fit our schedule. He very much became a part of the family during the process of searching for a home. In the end, he found us exactly what we were looking for at that exact price we wanted. I would highly recommend Chris for anyone looking to buy a home." - Ryan Case, Newbury

"We interviewed four different realtors before we listed our home. Before picking one of them, we received a card in the mail about another home in our neighborhood that had just sold while listed with Chris. We decided to give Chris a call, and were very glad we did. Chris is very knowledgeable about the town of Andover, and was able to answer all of our questions without hesitation. Chris was always prompt and flexible with our appointments & returned every phone call or text no matter the time or day. Chris always calmed us down, when things got difficult with certain buyers & was so patient with us while we made decisions. Without Chris, we wouldof definitely taken our house off the market after the second buyer backed out. We would highly recommend Chris Papineau if you are looking to list your home to sell or to buy." - Darlene Bradshaw, Andover

"Chris helped me purchase a home in Andover. He knew the area and helped me through the negotiation process with the seller. Chris did an excellent job in helping me identify several homes in the area within the requirements I outlined. I highly recommend him." - Michael Gritz, Andover

"I worked with Chris to find a place for my family to move into in MA. It was a pleasure working with Chris. He was always well prepared with facts and details about the properties we were seeing. If you are looking for a property in the northern MA area, renting or buying, please reach out to Chris. He will take care of you. I highly recommend Chris for all your real estate needs." - Edwin Raj, Andover

"I recommend Chris for a new home purchase. Chris keeps the coordination between the bankers, attorneys and the seller very well. He plans the events well, is responsive, always available, punctual and never skips a step. To give an example, the central vac hose was missing from the property [ during inspection] so I couldn't test that but Chris surprised me when he took his central vac hose to the property and sent me a video. I want to thank Chris for helping me to own a very good home." - Sudeep Biswas, Andover

"Chris is very professional, detail oriented and knowledgeable. He delivers good results. He takes the time to explain the options, walk with me through the process. The most important thing he was that he found properties that I was comfortable with and within my budget." - Basenal Dessin, Andover

"Chris was great. He knew the area we were looking at very well. He was always quick to respond to any questions or requests we had. We looked for a very long time and he was patient and kept with us." - Chase Robinson, North Andover

"Chris is a very experienced realtor whose help and guidance came through for me two fold. He not only listed and sold my condo but he also helped me purchase my first house! When it came to listing/selling my condo he was very thorough in explaining the process, had a spectacular photographer and set up the Open House flawlessly. The Open House went so well I had three offers that night and my condo was under agreement the very next day! On the flip side (helping me buy my first home) Chris was there for me every step of the way. He answered all of my emails and texts quickly and was very knowledgeable with the many questions I had. I found a home and was under agreement within two weeks. Chris always goes the extra mile for his clients. He even came to my rescue when my car battery died at the closing and used his jumper cables to start my car! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone, you will not be disappointed." - Michelle Desrochers, North Andover

"Chris and the Papineau Team were masterful in finding, negotiating and closing my home. The combined local knowledge was very impressive including lawyer and inspector suggestions and even help with utilities. 5 stars!!" - Mark Burns, North Andover
