Christopher Nortley

President | Owner

Experienced leadership and brokerage in the multi housing real estate industry, with specialized expertise focused on manufactured housing communities.

Christopher Nortley, Founder and Managing Partner of MHRE, specializes in Manufactured Housing Communities (MHC’s) and Recreational Vehicle Communities(RVC’s) throughout the United States and Canada. With over 26 years of brokerage experience his real estate knowledge in marketing platforms, negotiation strategies, escrow management and close of escrow is insurmountable to his competitors.

In 2016 Christopher was ranked as the #1 broker in the United States with over $330,000,000 in MHRV transactions.

Prior to MHRE, Christopher was a founding partner of Sunstone Manufactured Housing Consultants, established in April 2010, of which he was responsible for closing over 71% of Sunstone’s production before departing.

Preceding Sunstone, Christopher worked at CBRE where he was a founding member of the Manufactured Housing Group. During his tenure in the company’s niche service offering, he was responsible for over 76% of the group’s production.

Further to his brokerage expertise, Christopher has an extensive land background, selling over 7,000 acres of land throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Tennessee. His collective 14-year knowledge in raw land is exceedingly beneficial to clients who regard existing MHC investments with a forward-looking approach in speculation of a change of use on land value. This concept would supersede the cash flow value of the asset bringing greater returns.

Christopher’s flawless closing record and uncandid ability to think “outside the box” has resulted in his clientele’s assurance of his proven ability to perform. His clients comprise of REITS, institutional operators, private equity firms, hedge funds, syndicators, mom & pop operators, banks and special servicers.
