From mastering the mortgage financing business to narrowly missing a first place finish in the 2009 Ironman World Championship on Hawaii Island, Chris has pursued excellence in all that he does with a passion!

Growing up in Northern California’s Bay Area, Chris approaches life and work with determination and a willingness to work hard to deliver results both personally and professionally.  He was 25 when he decided to pursue a career as a professional athlete, putting his real estate industry career on hold for a time. Now 47, Chris counts numerous National Championship titles, and dozens of victories at Ironman events around the globe, including a runner-up finish at the ultimate endurance event, the Ironman World Championship hosted in Kailua-Kona each October, among his many pro athlete accomplishments. 

He made Kailua-Kona his permanent home in 2010 with wife, Karis, and his two children – a move they had contemplated for several years. Today with a love for the sport and a strong belief in giving back, Chris continues one-on-one coaching for individuals pursuing their own athletic dreams, as well as executive coaching in sport, cycling, running, tri and life balance. 

With a renewed passion for his initial career choice, Chris returned to real estate as a sales representative for Hawaii life in late 2018. “I literally have run and biked nearly every inch of this truly big island and know it as well as the back of my hand,” he says.  

Since moving here, Chris says he has been active purchasing land, developing projects and building his family’s dream home in Kona. He’s now dedicated to assisting others with finding their perfect home in paradise – whether it’s an expansive estate or oceanfront condo, primary home or second home, or an investment property, serving his client needs, he says, is always the top priority.    

“I am excited to partner with Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers and to be part of this highly successful, professional group that specializes in the luxury residential market, as well as investment properties and first time buyers,” Chris says.

“Let me guide you to the finish line with a stress-free, efficient real estate transaction in the Hawaiian Islands today or sometime in the future. I’m here at the starting line whenever you’re ready”!
