Chris began his real estate career in 2000 and is a licensed Associate Broker. While his family has been in the real estate business in Kansas City for generations, Chris switched to real estate after owning his own advertising, design and marketing firm for over 20 years. "I jumped at the opportunity to make the switch and bring my design and marketing skills to the real estate business. I love providing my clients with a level of service that is rare in our industry." Chris and the Smart Team have sales of over $17 million for 2012 including nearly 100 properties-the best year ever in a still challenging and unpredictable market. When not selling real estate, Chris enjoys competition BarBQue, tennis and photography.
