If pressed to pinpoint all of Chris’ many talents down to one thing, it would be this: he thrives on connections. A fifth-generation Mainer, Chris grew up in Camden. He left briefly to work construction down south, returning after only one year to drive school buses - although his primary motivation was to play in a band. You can often find him using his Notary Public license to perform weddings or on the drums, playing classic rock with his band, Creatures of Habit. He might also be cruising around town in his 1962 corvette or on his Harley. Or at his place near Moosehead Lake in Greenville. Indeed, he thrives on making and maintaining connections.
Now a 44-year industry veteran, Chris is still as jazzed about real estate as he was back in 1978 when he started at the company his mother owned. Being a broker turned out to be an extension of the “work” he was already doing—connecting with people.
A past president of the local board of realtors, Chris has served on the committee to redraft the statewide documents used industry-wide and he’s proud of the sophisticated system that exists in this largely laid-back state.
"We were so pleased to have chosen Camden Real Estate when we decided to sell our home. Better yet, was when their agent, Chris Cokinis came down to our house and met with us. He was personable, professional, appropriately confident, knowledgeable, thorough, and a joy to work. At the time we listed we were in one of the most difficult selling periods. Despite this, Chris and his company were unfazed. They have an organized procedure they adhere to when listing a home, understand the owner’s attachment to it, and launched a rigorous advertising campaign. Most notably, the couple that purchased our home are wonderful people and a goodness of fit. Finally, the closing was effortless. Chris advised us to show up with a smile on our face. Since the sale we have kept in touch with Chris in helping us go on to our next adventure. He is the type of agent who always makes himself available when advice is needed."
"Camden Real Estate Company -- a great local company. We could not have found a better agent than Chris Cokinis. Knowledgeable, real, the kind of person who treats everyone like family, and in the process becomes a lifetime friend."
