Chris Imel - REALTOR®
For as long as I can remember, I have always been intentional about helping people; with service to others forming the basis of my entire professional career progression. It was therefore given that I would find my way back to real estate, driven by the desire to assist people in realizing their dreams of homeownership and guiding them in the search for that true forever home. I really enjoy helping clients in one of the biggest investments they will ever make and facilitating their transitions to the next stages of their lives.
With an extensive background in hospitality and business management spanning 18+ years, I am well versed in creating the ultimate memorable customer experience. Recognizing the similarities between both industries, I leverage strong interpersonal skills and great sales strategies to drive desired results, all while building long-term relationships that are grounded on honesty, respect, and clear-cut communication. It is that connection to those I serve which powers my determination to ensure they all realize their realty goals.
Having spent my entire life in Indiana, and of an adventurous nature, I possess unique insights into the region’s diverse communities, neighborhoods, and local amenities which add value to every transaction. I am also an out-of-the-box thinker, never stopping until I find a solution to every process since settling is never an option. I resourcefully and proactively address challenges and bring the most up-to-date technologies to the table. My measure of success is having guaranteed client satisfaction with each closing.
Outside of real estate, I enjoy boating, traveling with my fiancée Liz, and taking part in community service. I am also currently a Firefighter/ First Responder for the Ladoga Volunteer Fire Department.
