Why Chad

Enthusiastic Advocate
My favorite thing after 23 years in real estate is being powerful advocate for my clients best interest. Helping them style and prep their home for market, advising them on how to make a great offer and win that new home, and being a long term advisor… All these things are what I love most about helping my clients buy and sell their homes and investment properties.


“As a founder of Metropolist and the self-appointed Master of Ceremonies, I love bringing together what seems like random people and events and having amazing things materialize out of it. This is what incubates in our event spaces and the Learning Lab. It’s what Metropolist is all about: where art and science intersect with life.”

“Metropolist is the culmination of what I love about the real estate industry in both its entrepreneurial possibilities and the skill development I felt was missing in making the industry even better. We reach beyond the traditional expectations of a real estate office.”
