Chris began his career in Real Estate in 1990 after receiving his BA degree in Business-Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and returning to Elk Grove, his hometown.
He acquired his California Real Estate License and sold residential real estate for 2 years. Chris then received his California Real Estate Brokers License, and shortly thereafter, entered the Mortgage Business on both the banking and broker side for 3 years. Wanting more education, he then entered the MBA program at the University of Texas at Austin and received his Masters Degree in 1997 with a concentration in Finance. Chris then spent 10 years in the Airline Industry in numerous positions which included Corporate Finance, Internet Marketing, Business Development, Project/Product Management, and ultimately Managing Director of Distribution. During his time in the Airline Industry, he continued to stay close to his real estate origins by acquiring and managing numerous properties for himself.
In 2009, Chris returned to his original California Real Estate roots by not only listing and selling Residential Real Estate but also by serving as a Property Manager for his Investor clients. Through the turbulent years of 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, he successfully guided his clients through short sales, foreclosures, and auctions, earning Masters Club status in 2010, 2011, 2012,and 2013.
In December of 2012, seeing signs of an improving and more normal real estate market, Chris opened Stanley Real Estate & Investment with the clear vision of giving his current and future clients an even better real estate experience through his own brokerage. Stanley REI has had a successful and exciting first few years, growing from just a few real estate professionals at the beginning of 2013 to twenty five as we head into 2016. With the purchase our own commercial building in the beginning of 2015, giving Stanley Real Estate & Investment a prime location in Old Town Elk Grove and plenty of room for our professionals to operate their business, Chris believes 2016 will be a great year in real estate, and Stanley REI is perfectly situated to serve its clients as we continue to see a robust real estate market.
