“I take great pride in offering superior service to my clients,” Chris’ Zillow “About Me” section reads. “If you’re in the market to buy or sell a home, please give me a call. I’d be happy to discuss your needs and provide advice at no obligation to you.”

During season 25 of Little People, Big World, Chris tried to use his real estate skills to create some residual income. Amy and Chris went to look at homes together and they toured big properties out of their price range in an effort to use the space to host weddings.

“He’s had several of his own businesses. And even though he’s working for a real estate company or whatever, you’re kind of self-employed in a lot of ways,” Amy explained during the March 19, 2024, episode. “So this is just an extension of what he’s done in the past, trying to come up and see what another business can do.”

However, Amy wasn’t completely convinced by the operation, as she didn’t want to work until she was 85.

“But if we have to host them and we need to host so many of them in order to cover a lot more expenses that I would’ve anticipated in my later years, that’s where I hesitate,” the mother of four told producers in a solo confessional. “‘Cause I don’t know if I have that kind of fight at this age.”
