Chris Elmi was born in The Woodlands and grew up watching a quaint bedroom community transform into an unparalleled lifestyle community where families can enjoy the perfect work-life balance. He specializes in The Woodlands and Spring areas, but is available to offer his services throughout the Greater Houston area.

Chris graduated from The Woodlands High School in 2001 and then Texas A&M in 2005. Soon after he married his college sweetheart and they have twin 7-year-olds who they enjoy spending quality time with together as a family.

Upon graduating and starting a family, Chris remained engrained in the community by becoming heavily involved in the Chamber. Holding several leadership positions over the years within the Chamber afforded him great connections with community leaders, intimate local knowledge, and a sphere of influence.

Chris is an alumni of Leadership Montgomery County and volunteers with the Market Street Noon Kiwanis, The Woodlands CrawPHish Festival, The Woodlands Chamber of Commerce Community Relations Team, Woodlands Chamber Diplomats, and Woodlands Chamber YPN.

Shortly after earning his license, Chris studied and earned the prestigious Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), and Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designations. He achieved recognition recently as the Falls at Imperial Oaks Honorary Realtor for sales and performance. Chris also distinguishes himself as an expert on the new home construction and sales process. His wife has worked in new home sales for over a decade, so he has a inside perspective on how to guide buyers through all aspects of building a new home.

Professional, caring, efficient, and knowledgeable are words that often appear in Chris' customer experience surveys. He takes great pride in delivering an exceptional process for all of his clients. Chris is a fulltime residential real estate professional with a dedicated focus on helping others.

Chris was very knowledgeable about the entire home sale process. He kept me up to date on everything that was taking place. He offered advise and answered any and all questions I had promptly. His expertise in the industry was very evident throughout the entire process. My home was only on the market for 5 days and we had multiple offers. I would have never imagined this process could have gone as smooth as it did.

This was our second home purchase with Chris Elmi. Once again, he was fantastic through the entire process. He has a deep strategic understanding of the market. He saved us significant time and money by anticipating our needs and presenting solutions for our approval. We learned quickly that he is a genuinely kind and patient person. He is very organized and kept us on track despite several personal issues we were having at home. He provided clear and immediate answers to all of our question. Chris Elmi is the perfect choice for the seasoned home buyer or the stressed out first-timer who is navigating unfamiliar territory.

Chris Elmi, from the Nina Marino Team at Keller Williams, guided us through the purchase of our dream home from start to finish. He patiently and cheerfully showed my wife and son over a dozen listings. We used a VA loan and we benifited from his considerable experience with VA lenders. Chris always made us feel important and valued. He treated us like friends as well as clients. We learned a lot from him. He told my wife at the beginning that "there are no stupid questions". He insured that we understood each step, term and condition involved with our purchase. It might sound funny but thanks to him we actually had a good time buying our house. Thanks again to Chris Elmi and the rest of the Nina Marino / Keller Williams team!

Chris was very helpful. He went out of his way to show us this property on short notice and was prompt in finding out all the information we needed to make a decision on this rental. We did end up renting the property and even after the lease agreement was signed, Chris continued to help us with additional questions and concerns. We felt very luck to have been introduced to Chris through a friend. We would highly recommend him.
