Meet Chris Cataldo - one of NW Oregon's top brokers who began his career in real estate in 2000 as an investor after spending years involved with real estate as a hobby. Chris not only inherited his exposure to real estate, but also developed a keen aptitude stemming from his sincere interest, knowledge, and experience in the industry. With a passion for real estate, Chris constantly has studied real estate cycles, for the last 25+ years and attended thousands of open houses and engaging in numerous conversations with realtors over the decades as a hobby while he was engaged in a professional marketing career in corporate communications.
A TCK ("Third Culture Kid) Chris grew up as an American kid overseas, developing a broad worldview. Having spent significant time in Europe and Asia Chris has a deep inter-cultural understanding with fluency in German, Japanese, and English. In University Chris obtained a BS Degree in Business Administration, graduating Cum Laude in the mid-1980s
Chris understands what it is like to stand in his clients' shoes. Relocating several times - buying and selling houses of his own - has afforded Chris a sensitivity towards his clients' journey, which can be attributed to the first-hand perspective he gained through his personal experience. Now, a longtime resident of the area, Chris has gained a full understanding of the diverse needs of families in the community.
Chris has repeatedly gained recognition for effectively representing his clients. Chris is an experienced Commercial Specialist and a member in good standing of Portland-Metropolitan-Association of Realtors, NAR, and RMLS.
He is truly the Professional’s Professional who goes the extra mile for each and every client – he treats his clients with the fiduciary status and duty that the law requires. Over the past 16 years Chris has executed a variety of complex personal deals during his investment activities, giving him a deep understanding of the real estate acquisition and sales process prior to becoming a licensed real estate broker in 2013 after retiring from his marketing career. For Chris, finding the right home or investment for his clients is the goal, not the commission.
"Chris made every step of our home selling process a complete pleasure! He always went above and beyond to provide excellent assistance to myself and my husband throughout the entire process. Chris is very professional, genuine, truthful and was always supportive to us. He always had our best interest in mind and made our home selling process as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Chris!" Bob and Madonna Laurence
