Our Team

Chris-Smith-5a-150x150Chris Smith, a resident of Arizona since 1977, grew up in New Hampshire and moved west when he was young providing him with a different outlook on life. Attending a local Phoenix High School and a State University provided Chris with a strong presence in the area and a great start to his professional career. Chris married his wife Amy in 1996, and they have two beautiful healthy children, Claire and Justin.

After spending several successful years in an executive management role with two local Valley banks, Chris chose to become an entrepreneur as a CPA, Business Broker, and Realtor®.  Chris’ CPA designation, banking background and business financing experience inspired him to pursue ambitions of over seeing a professional organization. Sunbelt Realty and Business Advisors is that vision. Idealized by family values, integrity and professionalism Chris is very proud to represent this concept.

Chris looks forward to working closely with you to confidentially achieve your business sale or purchase in a manner of professionalism and with integrity you can count on and trust.
