San Francisco, CA, June 1, 2015 – Chris Backer, Marin Residential Real Estate Specialist, has joined forces with Zephyr Real Estate in its all-new Marin office in Greenbrae.

Backer has an extensive background in the legal aspect of real estate as well as a passion for the industry. More than a representative for buyers and sellers, he views his role as a communicator and educator. Becoming a Realtor was a natural progression for him that coupled his previous work experience with a commitment to creating a positive and advantageous transaction experience for his clients.

Backer’s background in contracts and disclosures offers a unique perspective when handling transactions and thinking about what is best for clients.  “The importance of utilizing the services of a Realtor to navigate through the buying and selling process is greater than ever,” Backer said. He is well equipped for that process. He can be reached at 415.729.4139.

“What separates the extraordinary from the ordinary in real estate is not the willingness to do a little more to get things done,” commented a satisfied client, Robert S. of Mill Valley, “but the drive to do a lot more to see that clients have a great experience with such an important transaction.”

Backer is a Bay Area native who attended college at U.C. Davis. His other interests include hiking, snowboarding, fly-fishing and golf, and all things outdoors. While he is a fan of all Bay Area sports teams, the San Francisco Giants are far and away his favorite.

“Chris is extremely detail oriented and proactive,” stated Erinn Millar, Sales Manager at Zephyr’s Greenbrae office, “He brings a high level of care to each and every client.”
