Christopher D. Roy
Extension: #27

Hello, my name is Chris. I am the Office Manager of Royal Rose Realty. I am a lifelong resident of Utica NY, and love this area! I graduated from Thomas R. Proctor High School & Mohawk Valley Community College. My mother, Rosemary Roy, founded Royal Rose Realty in 1989. Although I became licensed in 1998, Real Estate has always been a part of my life, even from childhood. I enjoy working with people, and pay very close attention to their needs. It is extremely important to me, that everyone I work with is happy. I do not allow my wallet to be the driving force of my career. God is my Boss, and my conscience is a close second.

I am committed to client satisfaction throughout the total real estate experience, always going above and beyond what is expected. Whether the transaction is Residential, Commercial, or HUD based, I will provide the trust and expert negotiating skills which are essential for your ultimate personal success. Perhaps of interest, on a personal note, I am a runner and skier (and will do any sport in between), a failure in saying, "No" to any community involvement, a lifelong Utican, and an empty-nester of 3, married to the same great guy, Randy, for a very long time.
