He began his career as a Realtor in 2002 by partnering with his mom, Judy Williams. They had great success working together, which led to Chris being asked to take the role of Relocation Director. His focus and dedication led to an offer to buy the company in 2005. He took advantage of the opportunity, and quickly became a Broker leading a team of 70 agents operating in both Alabama and Tennessee. Chris then decided to take on a new challenge: selling New Construction for a prominent home-builder. While in this role, Chris began forming a partnership with Kelli Gunnells, which ultimately led to the creation of the KG Group.
