Chris Clifford, Broker and Principal of Water Pointe Realty Group, has been active in the real estate industry since 1980. He specializes in luxury residential sales and holds an extensive background in real estate marketing, sales, negotiation, and consulting. Being a Florida native and long-time resident of Martin County, he believes it is important for clients to first be sold on the unique lifestyle that encompasses the Treasure Coast, then comes finding the perfect home. Because of his in-depth interest and commitment to the community and its residents, the personalized service Chris delivers to his clients is unparalleled.
After kicking off his career in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Chris moved to Stuart in 1982. He was involved with sales in the private golf communities of Mariner Sands and Willoughby Golf Club until 2000 when he opened Willoughby Realty, an independent real estate firm representing properties across the various regions of Martin County. Through Willoughby Realty, Chris has developed a deep and personal relationship with the residents, members and staff of Willoughby Golf Club, and as a result has become WGC's preferred real estate broker.
During his time in the real estate business Chris has been active in the Realtor® Association of Martin County, and has served as a director of its board as well as on numerous committees.
Chris met his wife, Jody, in South Carolina when they were both in college at Clemson University, where he was a member of the Clemson Tiger football team and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration. Jody is the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Florida, and a well-known member of the Treasure Coast community having been very active with nonprofit work for many years. They have 2 grown children, a daughter, Kendall, and son, Austin.
Over the years, he has built a team that boasts nearly a century of market knowledge and experience across the many communities of the Treasure Coast. In February 2018, Chris and his team joined forces with two fellow firms to form one of the largest independent real estate firms on the Treasure Coast. Now operating as Water Pointe Realty Group, Chris feels the venture combines the area's top-producing, experienced, and locally involved Realtors® under one flag and that he is excited about what that means for clients, agents, and employees of the new Water Pointe Realty Group.
