With over 20 years of guest-centric experience as both a commercial and corporate flight attendant, Chris observes the world through his client’s eyes, senses needs and appreciates both wish lists and reality. As part of the start up team for Virgin America, his was a position requiring flexibility, tenacity and patience, and communication skills as he worked with a diverse, and sometimes demanding, customer base. Today, as a real estate professional, he is bringing those same skills and talents to an equally broad spectrum of discriminating clients.
A focused listener, able advisor and fierce yet fair advocate, Chris is known for his intuition and diligence while employing encouragement and genuine concern as he creates a positive experience for both sides in any property transaction. His business approach is direct and successful: he listens to the client’s needs and matches them to the right property, then assures an honest and efficient transaction.
Chris’ mantra, to listen and deliver, is the key to his long-term relationships with his clients, and that same philosophy permeates his philanthropic life. He makes frequent visits to his childrens’ schools, Head-Royce and Redwood Day School, to volunteer his time and help incoming families get acclimated to the new school surroundings, and still enjoys traveling around the world.
Chris is excited to partner with Highland Partners because of their stellar reputation. He is both impressed, and proud, of their affiliation with local charities and their philanthropic work throughout the community.
Partnered and the father of two young children, Chris is a Bay Area native in love with the cultural, recreational and social opportunities that the East Bay provides.
