Chris Barfoot


Chris Barfoot has spent the last half of his life as a sales professional. His passion for helping others has been a driving factor in all of his endeavors. Chris thrives under pressure and uses his OCD tendencies to stay organized and take on tasks that others may not have been able to undergo. This all started when he enrolled in the University of Phoenix late in life. His decision to wait for continuing his education was based on his desire for independence. He worked full time throughout his time in college. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2015 with a 3.6 GPA and a major in Business management and a minor in Entrepreneurship. That degree helped him open and operate a successful estate clean out company. This makes it possible for him to offer his clients many options while selling their home. He has extensive connections in every area of real estate and connecting industries but being an actual real estate broker was the only thing missing from his portfolio. In a world filled with so much uncertainty he knew he had to pursue all of his passions while the timing was right. Currently he is being mentored directly by one of Exit Strategy Realty’s top brokers.


Those that know Chris would vouch that he is very much a perfectionist. When faced with a task he can not rest unless his goal is achieved or every option has been exhausted. What Chris likes about real estate is the fact he can help individuals and families become home owners or sell their home and move on to their next life chapter. He loves to crush the “sleezy salesman” stereotype with honesty, clarity, and his infectious personality. Chris’ sense of humor always wins over a room but he also knows when to get down to business.


Outside the professional world Chris has a passion for antiques, classic cars and motorcycles. Although he doesn’t currently own a motorcycle, he finds serenity on two wheels. Chris is a loving father of 3 and soon to be 4 children and has a loving wife. He is also an advocate for rescue animals, in fact a percentage of proceeds from his estate clean out company goes towards rescue (no kill) shelters. He loves to travel and has many destinations on his bucket list but the one that is currently present on his vision board is Bora Bora. Chris is looking forward to 2021 and begins his morning with motivational speeches every morning. He is a firm believer that you become what you surround yourself with. Dream big but also dream out loud!
