Chris loves helping people to buy & sell their homes. He has spent over 20 years honing his skills in real estate. Prior to this he worked in Local Government as a Civil Engineer, implementing those wonderful traffic solutions, like the ones in your street, that keeps everybody safe. His knowledge of local government laws & years spent designing, planning & organizing tasks, adds strength to his real estate service to you.
Chris will tell you that he has had some great experiences in real estate & has got a few interesting stories to tell. What he will rarely tell you is that he has also accumulated quite a few prestigious awards along the way. One of them was being ranked in the top 10 in Victoria with a large multi-national real estate franchise.
A fond story that Chris likes to tell is about how he sold four homes on Christmas Eve, during his first year in real estate. The office closed after the Christmas lunch break-up party & everyone went home, but Chris kept working on his own, attempting to contact four home-owners & get four offers accepted. He wanted his buyers & sellers to be able to celebrate their successes on Christmas Day. Chris got his last sale accepted at 10pm on Christmas Eve!
Chris has recently been joined by his lovely wife Andree, & like Batman & Wonder Woman, they are becoming a force to be reckoned with!
When Chris isn’t working, one of the things he enjoys is singing tenor in a Barber Shop quartet. That caterwauling you may hear at night & think is the neighbourhood cat, is only Chris practising his high tenor notes! Chris lives with Andree, whom he has been married to for over 30 years, & their two sons Ben & Josh, in what Chris describes as a modest cottage with water views. When pressed harder, he says it’s a little home with the local council swimming pool over his back fence – lol. He plays soccer with his dog Harvey every morning & walks him every night. He attends church & enjoys eating out & chatting with friends.
“ After 6 months of stressful expectations & broken promises with another real estate agent, we were thrown a life-line in the form of Chris & Andree Rams. Immediately we noticed a huge difference with the way they went about their business, & our hopes of getting a sale for our house suddenly became real! Within just 4 weeks they secured a sale for us & our burden was lifted. Chris & Andree came into our lives as real estate agents, but they secured a place in our hearts as real friends. Thank you so much guys for your support, understanding, assurance & friendship. Forever in our hearts! ”
“ Chris & Andree were complete strangers to me when I appointed them with the formidable task of selling my home. From the outset they displayed optimism, integrity & a sound knowledge of the market, & proceeded with determination to achieve an extraordinary sale of my home! I would absolutely recommend Chris & Andree to any prospective seller. In my opinion they are the best in the business & I am glad I selected them to sell my home. ”
“ Chris & Andree it gives us great pleasure to write & thank you both for all the hard work you put in to sell our apartment. The outcome was great! We appreciate the time you both spent on it – you went above & beyond! Your excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism, & ideas to improve the look of the apartment, made the sale process wonderfully easy & successful for us. We would highly recommend your services to all our family & friends. Once again, a very big thank you! ”
“ Chris & Andree are a perfect team in real estate! They are honest & a pleasure to deal with. They took care of everything from beginning to end. They provided us with free storage to de-clutter our home, which helped to achieve the fantastic price we got. The Open Houses were exceptional, with a lot of effort put in by Chris & Andree – it was more like a party than inspection time! We got a great result & we would gladly recommend Chris & Andree to anyone thinking of selling their home. ”
