I help Buyers win in a Seller's Market
Compete to win without overpaying. Let me show you how I do it.

Have a top Providence Realtor at your side

Hello, I'm Chris Healy, a professional, full-time, Realtor specializing in residential real estate sales on the East Side of Providence. I'm a Certified Buyer's Agent and professional real estate negotiator. In the present Seller's Market, much of my effort is devoted to crafting offers that get the attention of Sellers. Many of my clients are first-time buyers, university and medical affiliates, creative professionals and people relocating to the area from other parts of the country.

Moving to Providence?
Consider the benefits of having me as your Buyer's Agent. I've helped hundreds of people buy homes on the East Side. I'd like to help you too. Let's find the best home, in the best neighborhood - - the one that best fits your budget and lifestyle. Benefit from my expert insider's perspective. Once you identify a home you want to buy, this is when my negotiation skills ensure that your offer is stategically crafted to get the Seller's attention.

Providence neighborhoods
For more than thirty years, I have enjoyed living on the East Side of Providence, in the neighborhoods near Brown University. Many of my real estate clients also choose to live on the East Side. Here they find safe, friendly and walkable neighborhoods - - ones that are alive with vibrant urban amenities. The East Side has tree lined streets, sidewalks, parks and clusters of small independent businesses, all conveniently located in the neighborhoods. These features make Providence, and particularly the East Side neighborhoods, so attractive, livable and desirable. Each Providence neighborhood has its own particular character. I'd like to point out these nuances and why someone new to the area might prefer one over another.

Charming homes with lots of character
In Providence you'll find a mix of homes of different vintages, styles, sizes and prices. Homebuyers new to Providence are amazed at the variety of residential architecture. It seems that no two homes are alike! This variety makes comparing your homebuying options more complicated. Buying a home here is not a cookie-cutter process. The thoughtful guidance of a professional Buyer's Agent is essential - - even for the most experienced homebuyer. In the Seller's Market we are in, having me as your Buyer's Agent will greatly increase your odds for success.

Most of the homes for sale in Providence are older. It is not uncommon for a home to be 100+ years old! Many of the older homes are in wonderful condition, retaining much of their original architectural detail and character. Some homes could benefit from updating or cosmetic attention. A few others may have condition issues that are not so obvious. In addition to being a full-time Realtor, I enjoy buying and restoring homes. Please benefit from my experience. Homebuyers who work with me appreciate that I share with them my firsthand knowledge of the things to look for (as well as watch out for), especially when considering buying a pre-owned or older home.

Does this sound like you?
My clients typically characterize themselves as "city people". They prefer to live in a manageable urban setting like Providence -- in a neighborhood that is diverse, friendly, culturally rich and intellectually stimulating like the East Side neighborhoods. They want cosmopolitan amenities (cultural events, lectures, museums, ethnic restaurants, libraries, independently owned shops and businesses). Most live very active lives, busy with family and professions and want a style of RI living that balances work, home and community. My clients like the convenience and compactness of an urban setting. They like that in Providence they can walk places -- that they don't have to drive everywhere. Providence is famous for its walkability. Many East Siders bike or walk to work! Providence residents enjoy being able to walk from home to a selection of good restaurants, shops, bookstores, parks, movie theaters, markets and cafes. Sidewalks throughout our neighborhoods make pushing a stroller or dog walking safe. My clients enjoy that Providence is on the ocean and has four distinct seasons. They like the convenience of an airport being just 10 minutes away and that AMTRAK and commuter rail make stops downtown. If these are things that you appreciate and want in your next locale and home, let's work together. I want to help you buy a home or condo that achieves your goals! I also want to take the time to introduce you to community features that will definitely interest you as a new resident.

Calling the East Side of Providence home
The East Side of Providence, where Brown University is located, is a beautiful, old, New England seaport community that was largely developed between 1780 and 1920. The East Side of Providence is renowned for its blend of architectural styles - - a mixture of antique civic buildings, fine historic mansions and restored nineteenth and early twentieth century residential properties, all in a walkable Ivy League University setting. The Providence East Side appeals to creative individuals of all sorts; artists, entrepreneurs, academics, professionals - - singles and families, who enjoy a style of living that is easy yet sophisticated, in a liberal-minded and diverse, college-town community.

Happy Closing day!
