How I got started in Real Estate:
If a fortune teller had predicted thirty years ago that I would pursue a career in Real Estate, I probably would have had her crystal ball recalled. Fresh out of school with a degree in counseling, I was invited to Sudden Valley by a friend, a Realtor, to critique his latest sales pitch. I listened, as I did, a new world opened up to me. Fascinated with how the market works, I marveled at the idea of investing in or selling a property and watching it appreciate. The freedom to work my own hours also attracted me. As many of us have done, I took a fork in the road, thinking that I would delay my counseling career a few years and sell Real Estate. Here I sit, thirty years later, selling in the same market and enjoying every minute of it.
The Key to My Success:
The key to my success stems from my past training and interest in counseling. Understanding people is an important tool in my avocation but none more than sales. My job satisfaction comes from connecting the right people to the right property, one that not only changes an address but also a lifestyle. I first started selling Real Estate with a small independent firm in Sudden Valley which was known as a retirement or second home community for Canadians and Seattle residents. I joined RE/MAX seven years ago, and my market is now exposed to the world through the RE/MAX Referral Network and my strong presence on the web. RE/MAX gives me the confidence to think outside the box, to be an innovator and a leader.
Today, I have become an Ambassador for our local real estate market – opening communication between Boards – and being awarded the #1 RE/MAX Realtor in Whatcom County for six consecutive years. My Top Selling Real Estate Team, Weitzel & Associates, includes a full-time support staff unmatched by any of my fellow Realtors. Having a top selling listing agent, several buyers’ agents, a marketing coordinator and a transaction coordinator insures that all of our clients’ needs are met in a timely and professional manner. I am proud of my community involvement, my sales, my team, and most important of all, my decision to become a RE/MAX Realtor!
Why Choose a CRS?
The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest Designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. To receive a CRS designation, a Realtor must demonstrate outstanding professional achievements — including high-volume sales — and pursue advanced training in areas such as finance, marketing and technology. They must also maintain membership in the National Association of Realtors and abide by its Code of Ethics.
Selling a home can seem like an overwhelming task. But the right Realtor can make the process easier - and more profitable. A Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), with years of experience and success, will help you make smart decisions in a fast-paced, complex and competitive market. Plus, working with a CRS means that you are working with the Top 4% of Realtors in the Nation!
Chris Weitzel — Your Local CRS
Most sellers don’t realize that they pay the same amount for a Realtor whether they are good, bad, new or a veteran. Therefore, It’s of the upmost importance for those considering a Realtor to choose one with experience and success. As a Certified Residential Specialist with over 30 years of experience in Whatcom County’s Market, I am confident that I can answer any question and meet and need you have concerning real estate.
The drive I have to further my education in Real Estate, keeps me updated on the latest marketing tools and strategies. The extremely successful marketing campaign that I have built for my clients has helped me sell more real estate than any other RE/MAX Realtor, awarding me the Top RE/MAX agent in all of Whatcom County for six consecutive years and in the Top 10 for the Pacific Northwest Region.
While the average RE/MAX agent in Washington helps 17 families buy & selling homes in one year, I constantly helps over 70. Since June 2005 – I have sold over 205 homes, 29 condos, and 59 lots. In addition to my high level of sales, I have also averaged my home sellers 98.29% sale price to list price! I believe my knowledge of Whatcom County and having lived and worked here for over 30 years gives me the ability to promote this area better than any other Realtor.
