Chris was born & raised in South Pasadena, CA where his passion for houses and Architecture began. College took him up to San Francisco for 3 years where he met his husband Steve of 34+ years. They then moved to the state of Maine. Chris felt fortunate to be on the coast of Maine for 8 years in a wonderful Victorian house which was built in 1862. Chris then headed to Madison, Wisconsin and lived there for 6 years. Not able to stay in one place too long, Chris then relocated back to the West Coast in Eugene, Oregon. He lived just outside of Eugene for 13 years in the beautiful country on 2 acres that was fenced for his dogs with trees, quiet peacefulness, and darkness for ultimate privacy. Turning a new page, Chris and his husband bought a 40ft Motor Coach, left Eugene and traveled around the country for 2 years. He then found the gem of the desert….. La Quinta, CA. It was a place where bicycle riding was FABULOUS. Chris started his real estate career in the Coachella Valley with Keller Williams Realty, La Quinta in 2017 and joined the John Sloan Real Estate Group where he has found his true sales calling. Chris is an avid bike rider.
