Chris began working in the real estate business in the late 90's. There were a few breaks in the action over the years, like when he worked for Halliburton Energy as a Field Engineer, or the time spent writing mortgage loans for a large regional bank. However, every year he has been a sales agent (over 10 of them), he has stayed in the top 10% of all real estate agents nationwide. Chris has helped design and sell numerous development projects in northern Idaho, giving him an acute sense of how all types of land sales work, and what is important. The time that Chris spent as a mortgage loan originator has allowed in an in-depth knowledge of the residential loan process. This is incredibly valuable to buyers (and sellers) as it can be an intimidating (sometimes frustrating) process.
As for Sandpoint, Chris and his family have been here for the last 5 generations, it is home to the Neu family. They love everything about the lake, mountains, four seasons and not to mention, the peace and quiet of this great part of America. Sandpoint is an incredible place to live. We have an incredible ski mountain (Schweitzer) just 20 mins from town, (and another 16 world class ski areas within 8 hrs!) We have the 5th deepest lake in the union, over 1,100', plus it has over 110 miles of shoreline, much of which is public land. This much water allows for tons of fishing, swimming and boating. Idaho, and this area is no exception has a huge amount of open space, approximately 64% of the 2 northern counties are public land. There is much to see and do in this part of the world. If you love being outside, breathing fresh air, drinking crystal clear water and enjoying a wide variety of people, I would encourage you to come and have a look. I will be happy to show you around and help you and your family find the right spot to call home.
