Born in the desolate wasteland that is the midwest, Chris knew early that a life amongst the corn and cows wasn’t in his future. While matriculating at the University of Illinois (go Illini!), he felt the urge to serve, both his country and its people. So with resolve and a bit of daring, Chris enlisted as an Infantryman in the greatest fighting force the world has ever known, the United States Marine Corps.
His career cut short by a tragic training injury, Chris relocated to the great state of Nevada, and Las Vegas, where he has resided for most of the last 20 years (there’s a whole midwest chapter here that really should never see the light of day, so it won’t), Chris worked his way from a lowly pizza delivery driver, up to the General manager of numerous restaurants, including Fatburger’s flagship Las Vegas Strip store, as well as The Melting Pot in Chesterfield, MO, and back down to a server at The Melting Pot of Las Vegas (better hours, better pay, and ZERO responsibility).
While buying their first house, Chris and Briana realized there HAD to be a better way. Frankly, their agent sucked, the agent on the other side sucked, everything was just one big bag of yuck. Knowing he didn’t suck, and having a huge skill set in customer service, like a light shining down from a UFO before it beams you up for the “exploratory cavity search” that extraterrestrials seem to be entirely WAY to fascinated with (clearly, Steven Speilberg left out a few choice moments when he was editing E.T.), the idea formed in Chris’ head…You should help people buy and sell real estate!
