Chris has been in real estate for over 25 years. His experience includes the construction of over 100 single family and duplex homes (mostly 1990’s and selectively to date), has owned a Realty Executives Franchise (Massachusetts 1994-2000) as broker / owner which maintained high per-agent standards and eventually sold to Coldwell Banker in 2000. The 2000’s included coaching ½ million and higher REALTORs® in order to scale & automate their business throughout the US and Canada. He also participated (and still does selectively) in doing condo conversions (multi-family homes to condos) and “raise the roof” projects (converting single family ranches to colonials in growth neighborhoods).
Chris has been a big advocate of constant education and participates regularly in high-end mastermind groups, as well as consults with private mentors. He runs his own buying and selling businesses with his family team, which buys 2-5 properties monthly, so they’re in the trenches every single week. They also help clients do the same thing around the country.
Chris and his family team have done over 80 million in real estate transactions. They mentor, coach, consult, and actually partner with students around the country (by application only) to do exactly what they do.
Nick grew up in the real estate industry and got started on his own at an early age. Most notably, he was knocking on Pre-Foreclosure doors at 16 and 17, doing up to 50 doors a day. This experience helped shape Nick’s real estate career.
Now, Nick specializes in working with lease purchasers to get them into a home and on the path to home ownership. Regardless of a buyer’s credit situation, he looks at their complete financial picture and comes up with a plan to get them into a home.
Kayla graduated from Notre Dame Academy in 2008 and continued her education at Johnson and Wales University to study Equine Business Management/Riding. After attending Johnson and Wales, her interest in helping animals grew. She then went on to the University of Rhode Island, where she was the Captain of the URI IHSA Equestrian team for 3 years and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and Technology. Kayla continued her commitment to the Equestrian team by becoming the Assistant Coach/Manager and helped coach the team to a regional win, as well as many individuals to Zone finals and Nationals. Kayla currently resides in Newport, RI with her husband Zachary.
Kayla enjoys educating both sellers and buyers about the unique options the family company has to offer. She also enjoys working with the Associates who are seeking to develop their own real estate businesses. Her energy and skill sets are enjoyed and appreciated by everyone she works with. She continues to educate herself in the real estate field and has other entrepreneurial business interests with her husband and family members inside and outside of the real estate industry.
Zach’s current focus is helping our Associates from many backgrounds and situations, looking to start or continue their REI business. He specializes in speaking with sellers to find the best option for them. He helps acquire 5-10 properties every month between the family business and Associates. It was a natural fit for him to be involved in this part of the business because, at heart, he is a problem solver and a people person. His skills in marketing and finance have allowed him to thrive in such a short period of time in this business.
Zachary is always educating himself and is always striving to become the best he can be. He is constantly looking for ways to sharpen his skillset in order to educate others.
