Chris believes that acting as a trusted adviser to his customers is the most important role he has as an agent. He has developed a large, loyal network of buyers and sellers, both first-time clients and seasoned investors. Sellers know that Chris’s marketing savvy will assist them to achieve the possible return for their most valued asset, and buyers enjoy the freedom to carry on with their lives, confident that Chris diligently seeks to locate the ideal property for them. Chris is a big proponent of staging his listings when necessary and maintains a warehouse full of fine furniture, art and accessories. In the past year, Chris has sold over $100 million in property from Tribeca to the UES, and from Harlem to the Financial District. A long-time Brooklyn property owner, Chris is an expert in "Brownstone Brooklyn." He is the resident specialist at his own condominium, One Hanson Place, and remains the top-selling agent in Fort Greene, consistently bringing record-breaking prices to his sellers. With degrees in Journalism and Law, and work experience as a journalist, marketing analyst, Law Clerk to a U.S. District Court Judge, and a transactional lawyer, Chris's unique combination of education and experience affords him a well-respected ability to guide a deal from marketing to negotiations to closing with the greatest ease and most effective results. Chris makes the most of his time off, whether volunteering as a mentor for at-risk teens or fostering pit bull rescues. He loves dry martinis, Italian shoes, and traveling to exotic places.
