He would go on to earn his MBA from Baylor University and co-founded The Hightower Company in 1999. Since earning his license, Chris has closed over 40 million dollars in residential and commercial real estate in Austin and the surrounding areas.

Chris is dedicated to providing his clients the best service, knowledge and results by leveraging his experience with the latest technologies and media outreach programs available. No lip service here: Chris prides himself on his integrity, honesty and accountability with clients.
More than a real estate agent: In addition to decades of experience as an agent, Chris has earned his Texas Broker’s License, demonstrating he has a superior level of knowledge, expertise and real estate education which afford him the ability to provide his clients top-level success.
Know the difference: As a licensed real estate broker, Chris has over 900 hours of formal real estate education, whereas a “normal real estate agent” is only required to attend 180 hours. Chris works with traditional buyers and sellers as well as investors. He has personally flipped over a dozen homes and understands the unique challenges of flipping in a top-heavy market like Austin.
In addition to Texas, Chris has also worked internationally in Vietnam, Thailand, Russia, France, Mexico and Indonesia. He also has proprietary experience in the restaurant and bar industry in Austin and Houston.
His Texas roots run deep as a direct descendent of Sam Houston, 1st and 3rd President of the Republic of Texas who would later serve as Governor following annexation by the United States. In his off time Chris enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. He can often be found enjoying live music, eating Bar-B-Que or near a Central Texas swimming hole.
