Chris got involved in real estate back in 2009, he was interested in establishing business that he could work after retiring from his teaching career. If you recall, at this time the foreclosure market was in full boom. Yes, it was counterintuitive, but it worked as he learned about how the real estate market adjusted to the wave of foreclosures. Karen joined him in 2010 and they began working together on a team at Coldwell Banker. They walked through a lot of vacant homes to help their buyers find that “diamond in the rough“ deal to fix up. Also, without judgment, they counseled those in financial trouble who needed to sell their home before it was foreclosed. Karen and Chris quickly realize selling real estate was not about being some slick salesman, but really about being a trusted friend. Helping others has always been a part of their natures, both coming from an education background, they saw their mission was to help people move to the next stage of their lives. Both value the importance of developing relationships with their clients and helping them meet their real estate needs. The Chopp’s understand how frustrating it can be to work with someone who is difficult to contact and slow to respond to concerns. That’s why Karen and Chris take pride in their motto, “Buy, Sell, Chopp Chopp!” as a reminder of the quick and timely service they provide their clients. So, If you’re looking for a seasoned real estate professional to help you buy or market your home, choose the Karen and Chris team at Coldwell Banker, because they care.
