With a strong background in administration and management, my introduction to real estate as a career came via an assistant's position to a top producing team who hired a headhunter to find someone, well, like me. I considered that time a 4-year Master's course in real estate as I was part of this award-winning team's every transaction and interaction. I learned the art of building a successful business one relationship at a time; from my first buyer through each seller since, it's a joy and honor to hear from strangers who were told "don't work with anyone except Christopher" or have would-be sellers attend everyone's open houses before contacting me and asking me to represent them in the sale of their home.

I take great pride in offering expertise and guidance to each client. When markets dictate certain courses of action that must be taken for buyers and sellers, there is still a strong need for strategy and finesse beyond what a website's algorithm, in its limited non-human capacity, can tell you.

If you also have high expectations in seeking support to achieve your real estate goals, you're just the person I want to work with.

he is a former member of the GBAR Charitable Grants Task Force, former board member of the Salem
Chamber of Commerce and North Shore Pride and a hospice volunteer with Care Dimensions. All
Christopher’s efforts, both professional and personal, attest to his sincerity, strong sense of ethics and
unwavering determination.
