Chad Eldridge

I’ve found that my successes have always been attributed to my commitment to lead by example. I strive to learn and understand my clients and employees needs, as well as the external factors affecting them. I promote and foster a cooperative, healthy workplace where my clients and employees feel welcome. I don’t make excuses, but rather offer solutions.

I make clear, upfront, unbiased, professional decisions and ensure they are the right decisions, not necessarily the easiest ones. I am inspired by the smallest of challenges. I look for strengths in others and good in every situation. I put others needs in front of my own to ensure and share in their successes, as I understand both my client and employee successes directly affect my own.

My Mother & Father told me at a young age-find a job you love and you’ll never work another day in your life! I am blessed to say I truly love my “job” as a Realtor and my passion is on display everyday.

I’m not your typical Realtor…You might be asking yourself what makes you different? The biggest difference between myself and most agents is I am more concerned with helping and building relationships with everyone I work with not just making a commission. I approach my business more as a Consultant, Educating and Guiding versus a typical salesperson selling and pressuring. I can assure you I will never pressure you in anyway and will always have your best interests in mind. I take my role as a Real Estate Agent very seriously because buying or selling your home is one of the single most important decisions you will make in life.

Whether you are looking to buy your 1st home! Selling a home. Moving up or downsizing. Or looking for investment properties, I ask you to give me a call. I can assure you I will not only be your agent but I’ll be your partner and trusted advisor throughout your buying or selling experience!
