With tremendous success in real estate since 2009, Christopher Austad has excelled in the New York City sales market for many years and expanded his business to South Florida where he’s also licensed and invested. With his discerning clientele seeking homes in NYC and coveted destinations from Palm Beach to Miami, this was the natural path, enabling him to bridge the north-south gap and provide the highest level of full service.
Christopher works in both markets seamlessly and receives invaluable support from his powerhouse team. He has ranked among the Top 2% of Agents at Douglas Elliman from 2016-2021, and in the top 1,000 brokers across America by Real Trends and The Wall Street Journal. To date he has closed over $500 million in diverse property offerings spanning Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and now Florida, from condos and co-ops to luxury single-family homes and new developments.
As a new development sales specialist, Christopher was recently on the sales team of such prominent buildings as 111 Murray Street, Tribeca’s most iconic luxury residential tower. He is currently launching new projects in South Florida as well, and in addition to developers, always enjoys working with individual buyers and sellers to help them meet their needs. “The favorite part of my job is the relationships I build with my clients. As a result of the trust and bond we share, I’m proud to say that repeat and referral clients comprise most of my business – a testament to the quality service and results I continually seek to provide.”
Also a Master Certified Negotiations Expert, Christopher takes his work and reputation seriously, as evidenced by his routinely stellar endorsements, noteworthy press mentions, and illustrious industry accolades. His honesty, integrity, discipline, and proactive approach to guiding clients have proven to be a winning combination.
Originally from Los Angeles, Christopher completed pre-med studies at the University of California, Irvine. He modeled for 12 years and traveled the world prior to moving to NYC and entering real estate. Personally Christopher is an active athlete who loves fitness and wellness, and the devoted father of two children.
