He and his father completely renovated a rental property that his father owned to increase it is value. “Real estate is fun, it takes vision and patience, but the results are tangible in the end. Plus I like crunching the numbers.” In 2004, Chris and his father formed Tenant’s Choice in Knoxville. They purchased and renovated distressed properties, turning them into livable rental homes. Chris has been a licensed real estate agent in the state of TN for 15 years. With 17 years of experience in the industry, his main areas of expertise are property management, real estate investment, and real estate finance.
