Chief has been in the real estate investment and finance world for over 20 years, and he owes it all to a late-night TV infomercial! As a teenager, he helped his mother manage her rental properties, but he wasn’t inspired to put that knowledge to use until years later when he was working a minimum wage construction job and saw an investment workshop advertised on late night TV. The rest, as they say, is history! Today, he is a successful entrepreneur who has worked all over the United States, spreading his knowledge and expertise across many different real estate markets. Chief is a 1990 graduate of The New School of Architecture, where he learned to love the creative problem solving of architecture and renovation. He resides with his wife and their three children in Rancho Santa Fe, California and enjoys racing cars, traveling abroad, and all things real estate.
Chris was raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. At the young age of 17, he followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather by joining the U.S. Navy, where he served as an aircraft electrician and a Naval Air crewman, participating in Operation Desert Storm.
After completing his service, Chris earned his FAA Aircraft Mechanics license and worked as a private mechanic for wealthy corporate jet owners. When he asked his clients how they made their money, they responded with two words: “Real Estate.” Soon after, Chris got his real estate license, but he still wanted to put his hands to work. So he borrowed some money, found a mentor, and began purchasing dilapidated homes to fix up and resell. To date, he has completed millions of dollars in transactions during his career.
In 2008, Chris attended one of Chief’s seminars to learn more about real estate investment. Afterwards, they struck up a conversation and became “real estate” friends. Shortly thereafter, they decided to test-flip a property together and found that their somewhat-opposing talents were a recipe for success in the world of real estate!
Chris is a detail-oriented “jack of all trades” excelling in acquisitions, negotiation, design, and resale of homes. He has a passion for his friends, family, traveling, adventure and helping others—especially veterans and their families.
After graduating from U.C.S.D. and being disappointed by the 9-to-5 grind, Elisa joined the rehab business by working as an apprentice alongside contractors and learning all aspects of construction. She prides herself on being handy with the tools of the trade and enjoys getting her hands dirty (which happens quite often in the business of flipping real estate). She has flipped properties across the country and has been involved with her family’s business in new construction.
Having always pursued many entrepreneurial avenues, Elisa is an experienced property manager, as well as an innovative copywriter and graphic designer. With close to 20 years of experience in real estate, she is also very passionate about helping others grow their real estate businesses. She speaks professionally to audiences across the U.S. and Canada, sharing her insights and expertise.
Elisa’s greatest joy is being a single mother to her son, and together they enjoy “la dolce vita” by traveling to new places, experiencing different cultures and creating fun adventures!
