Chris’s unique approach to real estate starts and stops with gaining a deep understanding of his client’s needs. A 25+ year Nike product marketing veteran with a love for design, Chris has been studying sneakers, architecture, and consumer insights in some of the most interesting cities around the world including London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, and Chicago.
Leveraging his passion in leading teams of designers, engineers and project managers, Chris is now focused on residential development and construction projects within Portland. As a result, Chris has the ability to represent buyers and sellers by balancing the emotional connection the right home provides for a family with the specific investment goals they might have.
Chris has always been a west coast kid at heart, having been born in California, raised in Seattle, and spending most of the past 25 years calling Portland home. Chris holds his allegiance to his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington and has since earned his MBA from the University of Oregon. Sports and the values of teamwork and competing have been integral to Chris’s life with a particular passion for soccer and motorsports. The entire Carle household is passionate about exploring new adventures across North America, Europe and Asia. As a confessed news junkie, when Chris isn’t busy attending his kids' school and sporting events, watching college football or Formula 1, he can be found relaxing with a pile of magazines and newspapers.
