The Managing Broker of Farchette and Hanley Real Estate, Chris Hanley, has had his broker’s license for 20+ years. His experience with St. Croix real estate stretches back much farther than that, however, starting when he was very young.
“I grew up in this business,” Chris explains, “as my mother, who was then the owner of Farchette & Hanley Real Estate, has been selling St. Croix real estate since I was a kid.”
Thus Chris absorbed more than a few useful things while he was growing up, including the history of ownership of many of the properties strewn throughout the island. His knowledge of individual properties, as well as each cove and hilltop on St. Croix, equips him with valuable information and insight when listing and selling property.
Chris jumped straight into the world of real estate immediately after finishing his bachelor’s degree in marketing from Bentley College. “The St. Croix real estate market is something that I live every day,” he says.
I keep up with my local market everyday – it’s not a hobby, it is my career and I love it!
