Local Real Estate Expertise with a Global Reach: Engel & Völkers


How do you distinguish a real estate advisor from an everyday realtor? An advisor is not a salesperson but rather a competent purveyor of the information who possesses a fiduciary responsibility to his/her client. John Chriss epitomizes this role.

After spending his youth traveling the world for the film industry (living in Seville, Sydney, and Los Angeles, among other places) his exposure to beautiful architecture, the coast, and his heritage drew him to real estate. Additionally, John says, "Growing up in South Texas, my father would watch movies with me on Saturday, and my mother would drive me to open houses on Sunday. Real estate has been a part of my life since birth."

A comparatively eclectic background has afforded John a global client base, ranging from "A-list" Hollywood actors to ranchers in West Texas. John - anywhere in the world can handle any of your real estate needs.

After spending three fruitful years with JB Goodwin Realtors in Austin where he consistently was in the "Million Dollar Club," John has taken his talents to the internationally renowned Engel & Völkers (formally Turnquist Partners.)

Engel & Völkers has more than 600 offices worldwide including the Austin Domain office where John is the Sales Manager as well as an active Realtor. If you are looking to buy, sell/lease investment property, home, jet or yacht John can facilitate your needs with world-class service.
