As a home builder for 10 years, selling numerous custom homes in several states, Christopher has a very systematic approach to selling Real Estate. Having many agents personally underneath him while selling his custom built properties, Christopher learned what it took to be successful selling those hard to sell properties and finding those special buyers for the luxury side of Real Estate. Now a Licensed Real Estate Agent, Christopher implements those strategies today always tracking online performances, listing and hosting performances, traffic increases/decreases and how to make alterations to maximize visibility online and in the local community. Where many people fail is where Christopher shines. Hiring a full time software engineer has also allowed him to reach heights that many cannot achieve by themselves. Christopher loves interacting with buyers and as such loves to offer open houses as often as possible in order to generate interest and build those connections with potential buyers. With Chris' first property purchase in the Destin area he bought a property for $839,000 and exactly 12 months later listed the home using his unique approach for $1,485,000. After 50 days online he ended up with a bidding war for the property and sold the home for $1,599,000.
