Deal Stories

Blue Water Development Company has dealt with Chris Davis for several years now. He has helped us in the sale and purchase of numerous properties up and down the East Coast. Chris’ knowledge and contacts in the hospitality industry make the transactions run smoothly and efficiently.

Rafael Correa, Blue Water Development

I’ve worked with Chris for a long time and his knowledge of the real estate market on a local and regional level always proves to be a huge resource in navigating transactions. He and his NAI Coastal team played an essential role in leasing a large portion of our building.

Jeff Wade

I’ve worked with Chris Davis and the NAI Coastal team in the past and had full confidence in their ability to advise me through my 1031 Tax Deferred exchange. Their access to the Shore’s top investment opportunities, both on and off market, proved to be a huge resource. All of the properties purchased were sourced from their portfolio and proved to be quality, sound investments.

Brian E. McKinley, Cool Branch Associates

Chris was aware of our desire to open a production studio in Salisbury. He was supportive and able to provide some great insight into possible locations. He knew that taking our time and finding a space that felt right was a priority and made sure that all of our boxes were checked with the Northwood property. I’m excited to get to work in the building and make it my own.

Abbi Custis, AbbiArt

This is the second mobile home park we have purchased under Chris’ representation and each time, he has proven to be a huge resource to our team. His understanding of the industry’s complexities allows him to conduct the basic due diligence required to vet opportunities. He knows our criteria and consistently presents us with quality investments.

Kevin Bupp, Sunrise Capital Investors

Chris Davis’ understanding of the development approval process was extremely helpful as we navigated contract negotiations and the buyer’s due diligence period. He represented our interests well and ensured that we struck a fair, equitable deal for all.

Rob Lord

The NAI Coastal team led by Chris Davis, Tori Brown and Chelsye Phillips-Hutton provided outstanding service to us in marketing our two newly constructed warehouses in Cambridge. In a challenging economic climate with rising interest rates, they negotiated a lease with a national tenant and sold both buildings at top dollar prior to the completion of construction.
