Chris Deming has been a Realtor® for over 10 years and has lived in the greater Twin Cities area all his life. He loves living here and reflects the hard work ethic that runs deep in my Minnesotan roots. Chris can happily advise you and your family on the ins and outs of buying, selling, and all the steps along the way. He is assiduous, honest, and candid, ready to negotiate the best result on your behalf. Whether you're a first-time buyer, a multi-property owner, or a seasoned seller, he is your experienced resource. When he's not helping clients with buying & selling homes, Chris enjoys watching hockey, playing broomball and curling in the winter. During warmer months he likes to be active on the lake either paddle boarding, kayaking or relaxing on a pontoon. He and his wife try to take their French Bulldog rescue wherever they go!
