Chris Burns has quickly emerged as an expert in new construction sales and small to mid-scale real estate development in Washington, D.C., all while building his business servicing a wide range of buyers and sellers since 2013. Chris' clients have characterized his approach as creative, detail-oriented and aggressive, and he takes pride in his ability to negotiate and find solutions in a competitive market. His vision and application of innovative marketing campaigns for new condo buildings have recently launched him into the luxury single family market.
