Licensed Real Estate Advisor
Christian Smith

Originally from the southeast of England, Christian gained his New York State real estate license and started working in commercial leasing in Brooklyn. He began with Argo as an Assistant Property manager, learning the intricacies of New York real estate and finely honing his customer service and communication skills.

As a former Civil engineer in the U.K., Chris is familiar with construction methodologies that comprise the built environment. He is keen to combine his New York real estate experience with his extensive background in construction methods to provide a “Value Add” to Argo’s brokerage team.

Prior to joining Argo Residential, he worked as an Account Executive throughout Europe for Rolls-Royce Aerospace, Pernod-Ricard and Samsung. “ To trust is to buy,” he says. “ I pride myself on getting to know the person before we ever talk business.” This is the fabric of true business acumen, and the way to create long-term relationships where integrity is king.

Christian spends his free time enjoying Brooklyn, where he currently lives. He is also a volunteer swim instructor to adults and children, and he holds a Second Dan Blackbelt in the Japanese self-defense art of Aikido.

Christian was very helpful and professional

Christian was very helpful and professional in showing me the apartment I eventually moved into, and guiding me through the application process. He answered all my questions and helped make sure I had all the necessary documents, which was helpful since New York apartments require a lot more documentation than I was used to. I hope living in the apartment is as nice an experience as finding it!

We've worked with Christian, Marina, and Jeffrey in the office, and they are diligent, professional, and fair

We have lived in an Argo building for the last two years and just signed another lease with them! They are true professionals and have been outstanding from day 1. They are very efficient with their procedures in the office, as well as, in taking care of their properties. Our building is always in tip top shape, clean, and elegant. On the rare occasion we've needed something repaired or maintained, it has always been addressed promptly and professionally by the live in superintendent, Peter, and full time staff, Omar, who are like family to us. They go above and beyond to make sure that every tenant is taken care of and the building is one to be proud of!  We've worked with Christian, Marina, and Jeffrey in the office, and they are diligent, professional, and fair. Their buildings are big dog friendly, with no breed restrictions and are located in great neighborhoods in the Upper West Side and throughout Manhattan. If you're looking for a great company to rent from, we'd definitely recommend Argo!
