Chris grew up in New Jersey and attended Villanova University outside of Philadelphia, where he met his wife, fellow real estate agent Isabel Affinito. He graduated with degrees in finance and real estate. He began his career working in New York City for KPMG's Economic and Valuation Services group, where he appraised commercial real estate. After a few years of working in the city he left KPMG to work for a commercial real estate developer where he was responsible for sourcing new acquisitions, raising capital and coordinating dispositions. He was involved with the purchase, development, and sale of over $500 million of office, retail and industrial real estate. In 2014 he and Isabel began to consider moving away from New Jersey. It only took a few trips to Austin for Chris and Isabel to fall in love with the city. They decided to move here permanently and work together selling residential real estate. They quickly hit their stride, selling over $10 million of residential real estate in their first year and winning their company's Rookie of the Year award. They have grown their business and production each year since then. After becoming acclimated to his new home and the Austin real estate market, Chris dusted off his skills and knowledge of real estate development and began building homes. He founded Urban ATX Development, which has grown to a $25 million development company focused primarily on development of residential and multifamily properties in Central Austin.
