What would you appreciate most in a REALTOR®?

You are lucky to have many agents from which to choose in this area and that choice will impact your experience whether you are thinking about selling your home or buying new.

My life has been about connecting.

As a youngster, and much to the embarrassment of my parents, I would leave our restaurant table and walk to other families’ tables while they were eating and introduce myself. “Hi, my name is Christian,” I would say. Sometimes they would invite me to join them just to chat. I was about five.

As an adult, every endeavor I have ever undertaken has been about pushing aside the layers that normally separate people to understand what it is that moves them.

Why should you care about connecting? As a REALTOR® in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area I ask a lot of questions. Before I can decide if I am the right person to help, I have to fully understand what is driving someone to sell their home or buy a new one. The better I can see, hear and feel their concerns, fears, hopes and aspirations, the more completely I am able to make their mission my own.

I don’t make promises that I don’t intend to keep. I don’t tell people things they might want to hear just to get them to list with me.

Real estate transactions can be complex with many moving parts. You need a trusted advisor to give you relevant information so you can navigate the process and make the smartest choices. I draw upon an array of resources and expertise to collaborate with buyers and sellers so they can make educated decisions. I work for you. Not the other way around.

I invite you to see what some who’ve worked with me had to say about their experience here.

I have lived in the area for more than 28 years, the past nine in a MidCentury Modern Tri-level ranch in northwestern Ann Arbor. I’m a runner and a cyclist and I’ve explored much of the region in running shoes or on my bike. Though I didn’t intend to settle here, I can’t picture living anywhere else. From the area’s excellent communities and award-winning schools to a multitude of parks like Hudson Mills and The Arb, to many excellent restaurants from Chelsea to downtown Ann Arbor, to our incredible medical and health care facilities, to the vibe of Cultivate in downtown Ypsi or Joe and Rosie’s in cute downtown Dexter, it’s hard to beat here to live, raise a family or start a career.

I have been married for the past four-and-a-half years to Elin Walters, who owns Exactly Designs, an interior design firm. I have three daughters, a step-daughter and a step-son, who are into college and skateboarding and sports and photography and the arts and projects.

I still love connecting with people. If my approach sounds appealing I invite you to contact me. I’ll buy the coffee. Let’s have a conversation about real estate.
