Life Experience Matters
All real estate agents have a backstory that provides them with life experiences and defines them as a person and a professional. As a former State Trooper, my focus was always on serving my community members and providing for their safety to the best of my ability. As a husband and father of 4, my focus is to provide for my family and love them in every way that I can. And as a graduate from the University of Georgia in landscape architecture, I was tasked with designing pools and outdoor living spaces that my clients would use and enjoy for years to come.
Working in real estate is similar to all of those experiences in some regards because while the physical risks might not be present, real estate requires that you wear many hats. You must be curious and willing to ask questions to find out the true motivation for each transaction. You must be a good listener and communicator. And you must be prepared to be an advocate for your client in each transaction. Actually, I would also add that you must be willing to be a friend to your client as well because friendship is based on giving without expecting anything in return....which is something I believe to be missing in most real estate transactions today.
My approach to real estate is simply to handle each transaction and each client as if they were my family member for whom I always want the absolute best. Relationships matter to me, and therefore, I will always be the guy you can call in any emergency when you don’t know who else to call. Actions always speak louder than words.
If I can assist you with the sale or purchase of a home, I would be honored to be your agent.
A few testimonials....
STOP . If you are looking for a realtor Chris Rowden is your man. Chris represented us during the sale of our condo. During this time, we were in the final stages of our newly constructed home about three hours north of Sarasota. We had to leave a lot of tasks to Chris. No problem! Chris arranged to have minor repairs completed, final cleaning of condo and staging for a virtual tour. He was also very helpful with the electronic closing portion of our sale.
We would highly recommend Chris to you for the sale of your present home or the purchase of a new one.

My wife and I have been buying and selling real estate for 40+ years, everything from rental investment property to vacant land to vacation homes and of course our family homes. Four decades and dozens of realtors and agents... In all those years and all those agents Chris is easily the hardest working most trustworthy, selfless agent/advocate we've ever dealt with. I honestly believe he will do anything and everything to serve your Real Estate needs... and do it honestly and ethically.

I was in the process of moving from Colorado to Florida, and I met Chris at an open house he was hosting that I ended up purchasing. He's an easy-going and friendly guy. He took his time to answer my questions that came up over the next few days, and he provided me with other listings that were comparable to information I provided and the first house. He did an excellent job communicating with me through texts, email, and cell calls which leads to good customer service. He will do everything in his power to ensure the transaction is successful whether selling or buying a house.
I had the great pleasure to work with Chris while selling our home and purchasing a new home. He went beyond the normal Open House events and even brought a fire pit from his house and had it blazing in our backyard on a cold day. Chris is a person of high ethical, moral, and professional standards, which is reflected in his work. As such, his outstanding client focus and personal service, impressive market knowledge, outstanding work ethic, and high level of integrity served my family well. Chris has earned my highest recommendation as a Realtor, and as a result, I would highly recommend him for your consideration as your real estate professional.
Chris was great to work with. He went above and beyond to make our home buying process as smooth as possible! Relocating with 2 little ones can be a challenge and we are so thankful that we chose to work with Chris. He was accommodating, really listened to what we were looking for, and helped us get the home of our dreams!
