Born and raised in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Chris decided to join the Canadian Navy at the age of 17. He did his Naval training in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia and Esquimalt, BC. Chris was posted in Halifax serving six years on HMCS Margaree and HMCS Halifax. Upon leaving the Navy he became an advisor for Sun Life Financial working three years under his father, John. After these three years Chris decided to move on to another career of self-employment and opened a Century 21 franchise. Running and managing the office from the beginning taught him that hard work and perseverance has made him a stronger person. After 12 years of Real Estate in Newfoundland, Chris along with his family, Lisa, MacKenzie, and Avery, decided to make the move to Halifax. Loving the real estate business for what it was he decided to transfer his license so that he could continue his passion for serving clients in their desire to purchase a family home.
