Beginning his real estate profession in 2005, Chris A. Sabido is one of the most trusted names in Bay Area real estate. Though he was born in the Philippines, Chris moved to California at a young age and has called many of the Bay Area’s neighborhoods home, from Menlo Park to Burlingame, San Bruno to Millbrae, Foster City to San Mateo. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone more knowledgable (not to mention passionate) about the area, and there’s nothing Chris loves more than introducing people to its beautiful weather, top-notch school system, eclectic architecture, and tight-knight community.
Chris began developing his work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit at a young age, as he spent his preteen years delivering newspapers and working at his family’s ice cream shop (not to mention claiming the title of top candy bar salesman in the fifth grade). He worked numerous retail and service jobs throughout high school, striving for excellence regardless of his position and even becoming the #1 salesperson at several of them despite his young age.
Chris’ love for real estate spans back into his youth. After school, he would drive around for hours appreciating different neighborhood characteristics. After graduating with a BA in business administration and on the Dean’s List from DeVry University, Chris decided to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a Realtor and entered the industry in 2005. He sold his first home just two and a half weeks after obtaining his real estate license, going on to sell nine homes in five weeks that same year and winning the prestigious Rookie of the Year Award. Since then, he has gone on to earn numerous accolades including the Emerald Elite Award, Platinum Award, Masters Award, and Gold Performance Award, along with being named to the President’s Circle and within the Top 1% of Realtors nationwide.
Clients consistently note Chris’ professionalism, expertise, and willingness to go the extra mile. Whether it’s offering concierge-style service or contacting owners directly when buyers express interest in a particular home, Chris is dedicated and fearless, offering an ambitious and goal-oriented approach.
Chris is well-connected as well, having formed a vast network over the years that has proven invaluable for his clients. Chris is proud of the relationships he’s nurtured with many clients turning into friends throughout the years and feels honored to help people achieve their goals of homeownership.
In addition to his experience working in residential real estate, Chris also works with commercial real estate. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a real estate veteran, whether you’re looking for a luxury condominium or seeking to invest in a shopping center, Chris can act as an unparalleled resource and advocate.
Chris currently resides in San Mateo with his wife and two children and has since moved into their brand new custom home they spent years designing and crafting. Some of their favorite pastimes include getting active outdoors like horseback riding, swimming, basketball, baseball, hiking, and fishing. His family also enjoys traveling and exploring the Bay Area’s rich culinary scene.
Chris’ clients recognize his strong points to be personal and keen eye for the amenities and craftsmanship that define luxury properties, discretion, patient-no pressure approach, focus, and attention to detail.
