Growing up in Sedona, Arizona, it’s easy to be attracted to the beautiful properties and unique dwellings that dot the red hills and sweeping valleys — it’s what first inspired Chris Ellson to join the real estate industry.
Chris graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff with a degree in hospitality management. He then went on to work for a cruise line, sailing around the world. During his 16-year career, he worked in various service roles and eventually became an onboard shore excursions manager, focusing on creating memorable customer experiences for guests.
Upon returning to Arizona, Chris was inspired to start his second career in real estate. After six years as a residential real estate agent and transaction coordinator, Chris is most familiar with North Central Phoenix and Scottsdale; however, he has sold properties across the valley, including Glendale, Goodyear, Mesa, Gilbert, Peoria, Surprise, and even Northern Arizona. His thoughtful attention to detail and client-centric approach make all the difference when helping his clients succeed in the local real estate market.
Chris’ love of helping others makes it easy for him to listen to and respond to clients’ specific needs. Whether it’s first-time homebuyers, experienced owners, or skilled investors, his goal is to make the real estate experience as stress-free and memorable as possible.
In his free time, Chris is a big-time foodie who enjoys cooking his favorite recipes and attending local food and wine festivals whenever he can.
