Get To Know The Team – Chris Ripperger

A dreamer and a doer.

Chris is a real estate broker with the Monteith-Legault Real Estate Company and has been a wonderful part of the team. He was the first broker that Josh and Marji added to the team and has set a high standard for all new brokers to follow. Ever since he was a child, Chris has been inspired by entrepreneurs, so he has done everything he can to educate himself and grow his business. Needless to say, he is well on his way to achieving the American Dream.

Chris said himself that he is most proud of his career, “I grew up with nothing, and have never had much of a support system in terms of family to help me or invest in me. I built my business from the ground up and worked hard to form the relationships and achieve the goals necessary to realize my dreams.” He is a self-made man and holds those who reject the conventional notation of answering to other people and make their own dreams a reality in high regard. The best advice Chris said he has ever received was this, “I don’t need to ask permission or apologize for my God-given right to earn an honest living and to support myself; especially if I am doing so by providing a valuable and needed service designed to help others.”

Chris understood very early on that he had a knack for sales and was always drawn to working with and helping people. He felt a calling to real estate because he has a close friend who has been a REALTOR® for 20 years who was always encouraging Chris to get his license. Chris also understands the value of being a REALTOR® because he knows “firsthand the importance of stable housing” and it brings him great comfort to help others obtain it.

In the next 10 years, Chris is looking forward to continuing to grow his brand and business. He said “It’s important to me to be able to look back over the span of my career and remember where I came from, to be able to express gratitude for how far I’ve come and to continue looking forward with the knowledge and experience the previous 15 years will have granted me.” We look forward to helping Chris achieve these goals and appreciate the wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm he brings to the company.
