More about Chris Remmes
As a longtime resident of Boston, Chris Remmes is recognized as one of the leading residential brokers in the Boston market. Chris brings a professional approach as well as a service-oriented philosophy to his real estate practice. He has built an excellent reputation and developed a loyal customer following of past clients and referrals by serving them well.
Chris joined Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage after ten years in the real estate industry to provide his clients with the latest and most comprehensive marketing and cutting edge technology available today. As a graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Chris previously worked as a Deck Officer for Exxon where he sailed around the world and satisfied his passion for travel and adventure. At Exxon, his intuition and skills with technology established him as a leader. He was selected for special assignments, which developed technology solutions for the maritime industry.
However, his love of Boston brought him back to his hometown. His career in real estate started in 1998 in the mortgage lending business. During this time, he obtained his MBA from Boston University. His knowledge of the real estate market and mortgage experience gives him a wide breadth of knowledge, which has helped him establish himself as a top broker in the Boston market. Chris works out of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Charlestown; he is knowledgeable in all the downtown neighborhoods of Boston.
“Chris has been awesome as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent for us since 2009. For example, when our son was beginning college and relocating to Boston, Chris was instrumental in helping us acquire a reasonably priced condo in a safe neighborhood convenient to campus. Our goal was to try to break even over the 4-6 years that we expected to own the condo instead of paying exorbitant rent or dorm charges during that time. When our son decided to relocate to Austin, Chris listed the condo for sale and it was under contract in about a week for the full asking price and a waiver of the inspection contingency and the mortgage contingency.
Needless to say, Chris exceeded our expectations and the condo investment exceeded our financial goals. Secondly, we regularly visited our son in Boston and loved spending time there so we asked Chris to help us find a single family brownstone to acquire. In 2011, we purchased a wonderful property located in close proximity to our condo and have enjoyed using it for vacations to Boston ever since! We recently sold it after our son’s relocation to Boston. Again, Chris was instrumental in finding the right buyer for this single family brownstone and, as an investment, it exceeded our financial expectations as well.
We highly recommend Chris Remmes whether you are interested in buying or selling a property in Boston.”

"It was a great pleasure working with you. Without your insightful knowledge about the specific Fenway market this transaction would not have happened."

“Chris is just a dream agent. I just sold and bought another condo and I couldn’t believe all the things he did for me. Endless effort on his part and all I had to do was clean up and get out of the way. I have now worked with him twice and last time he even had a party for me when I moved in. Come on - everyone does not do that!”

"I worked with Chris for two condo purchases and I have to say that I am very impressed and satisfied with his knowledge, responsiveness and expertise. He is definitely the choice for the Boston area. Totally recommend.”

“Chris has been an amazing help for my purchase. First of all he is always informed and updated on the best deal in the area. Second, he followed up the deal from the offer, to the purchase and sale agreement till the closing. Third, his knowledge on the area is so wide that he can tell you right away the issues that you may face. Finally I would like to mention that he always has a solution for everything. If you need a painter or someone to do a major renovation he can always help and find someone. He actually has a lot of connections in the financial field and among lenders, so that he can easily help you out if there are any issues. Sometimes things may go wrong and here is where Chris jumps in the picture. He will be walking you through the process of home purchasing (which can be stressful time to time) in a very nice way.”
- Paolo F., September 2015
“We worked with Chris for the second time when we purchased a new home last summer. Chris had to ride the roller coaster with us as we searched for 18 months for our new place. In that time, we lost seven offers, including a few where we offered the most money. It was stressful and frustrating for all of us, but Chris never let us get down. He just kept finding places for us to look at and kept us optimistic. Obviously we think Chris is great at what we does - we worked with him twice!”
- Richard G. and Darrell V., August 2015
“Chris is the consummate professional. He was attentive, provided solid advice and made what could be a stressful experience tolerable. He is a wonderful person to work with.”
