    About Chris

    Chris believes that becoming a trusted adviser to his customers is the most important role he has as an agent. He has developed a large and loyal network of buyers, sellers and developers over the past 13 years by working diligently on every single deal. Chris's marketing savvy ensures his sellers the greatest possible return for the place they call home; his buyers enjoy the freedom of carrying on with their lives, confident that Chris is searching through every resource possible to find the ideal property for them. Developers rely on his experience, instincts, sense of style and market knowledge as well.

    With degrees in journalism and law, and work experience as marketing professional, then a Law Clerk to a U.S. District Court Judge and transactional lawyer, Chris's combination of education and experience affords him a unique ability to calmly guide his deals from marketing to negotiations to closing with the greatest possible ease and most effective result.

    Chris has successfully closed over $500 million in deals all over New York, from TriBeCa to Carnegie Hill and from Harlem to the Financial District. A long-time Brooklyn homeowner and resident, Chris is a well-regarded expert on the "Brownstone Brooklyn" market as well. He has been the top selling agent in Fort Greene since 2011, consistently bringing record-breaking prices to the neighborhood.

    Travel is a passion and Chris has traveled to over 70 countries on five continents, but views New York as his metabolic twin. He thrives on its cultural scene, its diversity, its architecture, its sports, its parks, its food and its tribe. A lifelong “dog person,” you can find him in the park most mornings with his smart and uber-friendly pit bull, Ruth(ie) Bader Ginsburg.
