Growing up in Atlanta, GA, I was taught from a young age how important it is to treat people with respect and dignity. Through a first career in professional church ministry that took me to Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Colorado, here to San Antonio, and even South Africa, I learned how to listen to people so that I can truly help them. And my love for my family has drilled home how crucial it is that people have a place to call home that they can always come back to for a sense of belonging.
All of those life lessons are in play in my passion for real estate - helping you find a place to call home. Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, or lease, I’m excited to join you in that process. My goal as your realtor is to relieve the unneeded stress that comes with buying and selling a home; to that end, I have intentionally surrounded myself with fantastic people who help make the other steps in your process seamless.
At the end of your home journey, I want you to be able to look back and remember how much you enjoyed not just the destination, but the getting there as well. I look forward to working with you soon!

I recently had an opportunity to work with Chris Via at JB and it was fantastic. Chris was extremely helpful, honest and always accommodating of my time. From day one he advised me and never wavered in his conviction that he would sell my home for the most money. We sold for $10k over our asking price and I could not be happier with him. He is an excellent realtor and a better person and human being. Thank you Chris for everything, we greatly appreciate all your hard work and effort!!!” ~ Derk Wallace
“Mr. Via was the best! He made my move super easy.” ~ Darlyn Chapa
“We just closed on a new home and had a fantastic experience with Chris Via! Purchasing a home in a new state/city presents a lot of challenges that are amplified by Covid and we could not be more grateful for the level of support we received from Chris and his team. Highly recommend for sure!” ~ Matthew Churchill
“I have never met someone as positive and optimistic as Chris. The homebuying process was new to me and he made it easy simple and stress-free. Was so patient with my questions and encouraging!!” ~ Beth Hendricks
“We are very excited about closing on our new home! Chris worked nonstop to find us the perfect house and helped us ensure the acceptance of our offer (in this crazy market) without going above asking. When the lender wanted to reset the closing because they weren’t ready, Chris pushed the lender to keep the date and get it funded so we could close the deal. In our opinion, he is the hardest working Realtor in SA, and I highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home!” ~ Logan Underdown
“Chris Via was an amazing resource for us with the search and purchase of our first home. Through excellent communication and a savvy understanding of the market he helped calm our nerves and get us into our new home. I can say how thankful we are to have found Chris to help us along.” ~ Jeremy Rodriguez
“Chris was a fantastic realtor. From the pictures to the signing, everything was professional and of the highest quality. He was clear with expectations and navigated the whole process with confidence and clarity that is important to have in the home buying/selling process. The way he operates is a true testament to his character, and I hope those looking for a realtor are able to work with him in the future; as he is a great initiator in the process and does it in an honest and efficient manner.” ~ Mike Carroll
“JBGoodwin Realtors has a lot of knowledge base for not just service but advice. Very good advice in terms of being thorough with details and not being biased in terms of the realtor's preferential choices. All options laid out for the seller (and I'm assuming buyer) to choose from. Chris was very helpful and recommend him for your realtor needs.” ~ John Nguyen
“Chris did a fantastic job! I was under a time constraint to find a house, and he found a mortgage company that pre-qualified me in 3 days. He walked me through every step and accompanied me to closing. He even provided a new garage door opener and programmed it. His attention to detail is exquisite!” ~ J. Petrequin
“Chris Via quickly became our daughter's favorite "babysitter." Chris is not only knowledgeable about his real estate profession, he listened and cared about the whole family through the selling/buying/moving process. He was always quick to respond to our texts and he went above and beyond what he had to do. Chris listed, showed, and sold our home in 24 hours with 23 offers! Can't argue with success like that!” ~ David Diercksen
“Chris Via is absolutely fantastic. When you buy a home for the first time, there is so much that you don't understand. My family has been in our NEW house for a few weeks, and I can confidently say, I have not only been educated on the home buying experience but have ENJOYED every minute of it! Dragging around two toddlers, not knowing what to expect...late-night texts and the "fear of the unknown" was overshadowed by Chris Via's compassionate understanding, realistic expectations, and fast processing. He has serviced my family twice (inlaws) and my own family and will continue to let others know that there is a man out there with integrity that they can trust to get the job done and get it done right. Thank you Chris for Everything!!! We love you!!!! GO SEE CHRIST VIA!” ~ Vanessa Coachman
“Kudos to Chris Via! He worked diligently with us, helping us make two offers that turned out to be false starts before finding our ideal property. When the right one popped up at just the right time, we had to move fast in a seller’s market to be ahead of other buyers, and he was prepared. Without his expert help, we may have missed the property we’d been searching for, which is in walking distance from loved ones and fits our needs better than any we had seen during more than six months of searching within our narrow parameters. Since we moved cross-country we needed guidance for meeting Texas’s legal requirements, and Chris was always on top of the details for us. Moving day came, then two long days of driving. We arrived at our new home and Chris was there with a wonderful house-warming celebration. Since then he has continued to go the extra mile to help us as needs arise. We cannot recommend Chris highly enough!” ~ D&G
