Chris was licensed in Oklahoma in 2002, Kansas and Missouri in 2004. Since the beginning Chris has had an emphasis on working with real estate investors to maximize their real estate investments through selective acquisition, great property management and know when to sell or exchange. Chris works with "traditional" buyers and sellers as well. But he definitely gets his kicks out of helping people to build a "retirement worth having".
