    About Christopher

    Whether it's a summer rental or buying a home for life, everyone is looking for their own special part of the Hamptons. Chris is proud to be a facilitator in that process for his clients. An avid researcher and fantastic organizer, Chris presents his clients with the most relevant options and best opportunities based on their needs. He makes the search extremely efficient, as he does the entire transaction once his clients decide on 'the one.'

    Originally from Maryland, Chris grew up on his family's horse farm, home to Preakness and Belmont winner Afleet Alex.

    Prior to entering real estate, Chris perfected his keen eye and customer service skills at the Salon at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC as a freelance hair stylist for television and magazines. He has worked with many types of people, has a natural ability to listen, intuitively takes in exactly what a client wants, and possesses patience that is legendary.

    When not busy showing properties in The Hamptons, Christopher takes advantage of his time in both Miami and NYC where he continues to help many of his clients with their real estate investments. Christopher is a member of the Impact Circle of The Trevor Project as well as a volunteer with C.T.R.E.E. (Center for Therapeutic Riding of the East End).
