A Victoria resident for over 20 years, Chris grew up in Halifax and studied at Dalhousie University, Concordia, and the National Theatre School of Canada. Several years in the music industry then led to an extended sojourn as co-owner of one of Victoria’s best loved performance venues. Those years in the hyper-competitive hospitality industry gave Chris keen customer service and negotiating skills and trained him to stay cool under stress.
With a temperate Mediterranean climate unique in Canada and a broad range of housing that runs from Craftsman century homes to stylish modern condos, Victoria offers unmatched quality of life. The city caters to a culturally diverse mix of young professionals, growing families, and retirees, and Chris’s first-hand, street-level knowledge of the city’s distinctive neighbourhoods ensure he is uniquely placed to help newcomers and long-term residents alike find their niche.
Sellers will find Chris a patient listener who understands that selling a home is not only a major financial undertaking but almost always an emotional one as well. Although he believes no deal is a great deal unless all parties benefit, Chris is nevertheless a tireless advocate for the best interests of his clients: your goals will be his goals until those goals are achieved.
When not working with clients Chris treasures time spent with his wife and four children, ideally outdoors, and especially in their beloved Beacon Hill Park. He loves to read and is passionate about music and classic cinema. A long time meditator, he is committed to the precepts of honesty, temperance, and not causing harm. He has volunteered with Victoria Hospice and the James Bay Community Project and believes that in order to solve the big problems of the world it’s often best to start by serving our families, friends, and neighbours.
