About Christopher
As one of the founding agents of Compass in 2014, Chris Ritchey was a member of the Scholz Team in Manhattan. The Scholz Team focuses on residential acquisitions, repositioning, sales, and global executive relocation. Chris was integral in helping the team reposition the largest residential deal in 2015, Blackstone’s acquisition of a $680M portfolio consisting of 24 buildings. In just a few months they repositioned this portfolio to be valued at over $1 Billion.

Chris made the move to the Hamptons full time and co-founded the Hovey | Ritchey Team with partner KIm Hovey. With over 40+ years of combined real estate experience the Hovey | Ritchey Team has continued to be one of the top teams at Compass.

Chris presents his clients with the most relevant options and best opportunities based on their needs and desires, whether it be a summer rental or buying a home for life. He makes the search extremely efficient, and educates the Buyer or Seller through the entire transaction to the closing table and beyond. Chris also has an incredible eye for design and staging a home to help Sellers market their properties resulting in a higher sales price and less days on market. Originally from Maryland, Chris grew up on his family's horse farm, home to Preakness and Belmont winner Afleet Alex. As an avid horseman, he is a member of the Compass Equestrian Division, a national network of vetted real estate agents who truly understand the equestrian lifestyle. Chris is a member of the Board of Directors of C.T.R.E.E. (Center for Therapeutic Riding of the East End) as well as Co-Chair of their annual Horses Changing Lives Benefit at Sebonack Golf Club. He is also an active volunteer with East End Cares

Client Testimonials

"Chris is absolutely fantastic. He guided me through buying my first home, and I am so happy with my home and grateful for his guidance and insights. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the market, organized and thoughtful. He is a pleasure to work with and will help you find your perfect home." - Michelle Garcia

"I adore Chris Ritchey! His excitement about real estate and local life is totally infectious – I’ve never known anyone so resourceful and able to effortlessly build community around him. Chris has helped me with two properties - each time helping me understand their value in the here and now and also as an investment – I wouldn’t dare make a major real estate decision without him!" - Michaela Ablon

"I am the coop board President in our building and Chris Ritchey helped my wife and I find the home for our expanding family in East Hampton, Springs. During our search, we weren’t in a rush for a second home but if we found something we liked, we would buy a home. Chris listened to our wish list and we never felt pressured to look at homes and he didn’t show us homes that he knew we would not like. Chris will not waste your time and he is someone you can trust. I asked him many questions in person and over email. He was very responsive and helped us through the home buying process. Which is different than the nyc process. Chris pointed out the pro’s and con’s of each property and he debriefed with us after a long day of open houses. Chris comes with my highest recommendation and when we decide to sell, which won’t be for a while, we will list with him." - Chris Jimenez
