Chris guided me through the sale process of my home masterfully and aided me in getting more than I thought would be possible.  I highly recommend Chris.

- Client from Bear, DE

Chris was awesome.  He told us exactly what we needed to do to the house to get it ready to list and got us a higher than expected offer in 6 days!!  Couldn't be happier with the smooth, quick sale.

- Client from Newark, DE

Chris did a great job marketing and selling our property.  During most of the process we were either out of the state or the country.  Chris kept us informed through out.  We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to family and friends.

- Client from Newark, DE

Chris was raised in Landenberg, PA and attended Kennett High School where he played varsity basketball and baseball.  He graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Political Science, volunteered with the United Way, and spent a semester abroad in Liverpool, England.

 

The five years after college were spent in Los Angeles working in film and tv production.  He assisted, then managed, production crews of fourteen to eighty people.  He was responsible for budgeting, scheduling, and coordinating with the department leaders to ensure the production ran on time and on budget.  He worked on many shows/movies: "Inception", "Desperate Housewives", "24", "CSI-Miami", "Californication", "Dexter", and Independent Feature Films. 

 

Moving back to the area was a conscious choice to prioritize family.  Chris has a close knit extended family that all live in the Philadelphia area.  Chris married his long-time girlfriend, Tai, in 2015 in Princeton, NJ.  They went on a honeymoon "around the world" and it is an experience they will never forget.  They purchased a home together and renovated it.  Since then, they had a baby boy who is the most amazing person in the world.

 

In addition to real estate, Chris has a passion for basketball and plays several times a week at the University of Delaware.  He enjoys traveling, especially "adventure traveling", hiking, and camping.  He lives in Fair Hill on a hobby farm taking care of his chickens, geese, goats, and gardens.

REALTOR

Chris did a great job marketing and selling our property.  During most of the process we were either out of the state or the country.  Chris kept us informed through out.  We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to family and friends.

- Client from Newark, DE

Alexis is the best realtor I could have asked for! She helped me purchase my first home, and she made the process as stress-free as possible. Alexis is knowledgeable, professional, and personable. She took my lead with the pace and frequency of searching for the perfect home- and I did! I recommend Alexis to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

- Client from Wilmington, DE

We started working with Alexis after trying 3 other agents. What made us stay with Alexis was how responsive she was. It didn’t seem to matter what we requested she always tried to make it happen. She did marathon house showings over two different states often in the same day. She was quick to answer any questions we had and to research property information for us. I think we were horribly pick buyers and yet she never made us feel bad and genuinely looked out for our best interest over her own. Thank you Alexis, I don’t think we would be house owners if it weren’t for you! Needless to say, we highly recommend her!

- Client from East Nottingham, PA

Alexis is a Licensed Realtor in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. She began her Real Estate Career in 2015 and is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Preferred in Wilmington, DE. She works as a Buyer's Agent and a Listing Agent throughout the state of DE, in Cecil County, MD & in Chester County, PA .

 

She was born and raised in Delaware and she received both her Associate and Bachelors Degrees at the University of Delaware in Newark. Prior to her real estate career, Alexis worked as a Secondary Social Studies Instructor in Delaware. She takes pride in incorporating her teaching experience into her real estate practice.

 

She understands that every client that she works with is different and has individual housing needs. Rather than telling her clients what's best for them, Alexis likes to teach her clients about real estate and explain all options so that they feel comfortable making the best informed decision about the sale or purchase of their home! If you are looking to buy or sell a home in DE, PA, or MD, you can contact Alexis via phone (text or call!) or email.

Anthony Keating

REALTOR

Anthony is a Licensed Realtor in Delaware. He joined the Spotlight Real Estate Group after a fateful meeting with Chris Black at an open house. Anthony and Chris bonded over their shared film industry careers, and the overlapping work values between the field of film and real estate. 

 

Anthony's drive, determination and meticulous work ethic throughout his life was well matched to make him successful in the competitive field of film production, and sequentially real estate. 

 

After graduating Saint Mark’s High School, he attended Wilmington University, where he earned his B.S. in Studio Production, then worked behind-the-scenes for nearly a decade on several projects across the country. Anthony's non-stop hard work soon earned him a place as a member of the Director’s Guild of America, and Assistant Director at the age of 27. 


Anthony's shift into real estate, stemmed from his interest in returning to the state of Delaware, for which he has a fondness. He has been a Delawarean since he was 5-years-old, and his best memories are of growing up, and making friends around the neighborhood of his childhood home in Downtown Newark. Anthony has ties to the local community through his mother, sister, friends and colleagues. The beautiful weather, the friendly suburbs, the delicious restaurants, the tax-free shopping, the drivable distance to New York, D.C., Philadelphia, & Baltimore, and the easy access to the amazing beaches including the shore points of New Jersey and Maryland are only some of what makes Delaware a perfect place to live.

 

Anthony's attention to detail, and skillful management from his film career all cross over seamlessly to his work in real estate, and the Spotlight Real Estate Group is lucky to have him on our team. 

 

Additionally, he holds the same values about business as the other realtors within our group. Anthony believes wholeheartedly in being upfront, honest, and always doing the right thing. He takes great pleasure in helping others and would love be your guide to buying or selling your next home.
