About Me:

I am a life-time resident of the Hudson Valley and current resident of the City of Newburgh, NY. My wife and I live in its Historic District in the home we restored/renovated in 2001. Since then, I have done the same to several other homes in the city, and have served as a board member of Newburgh's Architectural Review Commission, Newburgh 2020 (Board of Directors for revitalization advisory) and currently on the Board of Directors for Newburgh Preservation Association. I am happy to share my renovation & restoration knowledge with clients - and because I have been a buyer and seller many times myself, I can relate to my client's many concerns first-hand.

Besides real estate, my educational background is in fine arts & graphic design; and I am still a professional musician as well. I feel my years of home renovation/restoration and my years as a touring musician in a 7-member band have taught me a great deal about negotiation, cooperation, patience and hard work.

Ratings & Reviews

Chris was patience and took me to houses that I would be interested in and had the features I was looking for. He was professional, patient, on time, and listened to my wants and needs. Chris was knowledgable and pointed out the pros and cons of each property.<br/><br/>I'd highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Newburgh, NY.

We hit the jackpot when we found Chris. I was a real estate agent in Brooklyn, New York, looking to relocate to Newburgh, NY, and I think Chris is one of the most talented agents I've met. Chris selected the best properties on the market in our range and spent a lot of time with us, showing us around Newburgh and educating us about the history, challenges and possibilities of this emerging creative hotspot on the Hudson. His ability to evaluate and represent the pros and cons of a property is top notch. It was like being with an historian, contractor, urban planner and real estate agent rolled into one (which is, I think, the case). Chris' love for this city, deep historical knowledge, construction expertise from his previous life as a contractor/restorer and his years of activism in the renewal of the City of Newburgh made working with him a thorough and fascinating education. He is very personable and is a skilled negotiator, represented us very well when it came time to negotiate our offer, and was a stalwart advocate for us through a bumpy closing process. He has remained an unstinting source of guidance (we now actually live across the street from him), and we will always be grateful to him for helping us find and secure our beautiful home.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013 in Saint Remy, Lincoln Park, NY 12401.

I’ve known Chris Hanson for about five years; we are both musicians and regularly perform together. Chris has impressed me many times with his deep knowledge of local real estate: he can speak knowledgeably about the history of local neighborhoods and properties, and as someone with a passion for restoring historic homes, he is full of useful advice about the unrealized potential of a property that most wouldn’t see. He was, as a result, my very first call when I began to think about buying a house.

As a realtor, Chris was extraordinarily helpful and professional. His communication was excellent, and he promptly responded to emails and phone calls throughout the process. He was very straightforward about the condition of properties we toured, and he was unafraid to identify potential problems that he noticed. Given his background in restoration, he was also very good at putting these problems in perspective: he could tell me what was a relatively easy fix, and what could end up being a dealbreaker. As a first-time home buyer, I definitely appreciated his insights into each property, and into the home-buying process in general. He made an intimidating and stressful process much less scary, and helped me buy a house I’m still very happy with. I would certainly work with him again, and I recommend him highly.
