Chris Montoya, A.C.I.A Certified
I was born and raised in San Diego. I grew up in the construction and real estate industry. My father was a land developer and taught me the importance of having a good work ethic. My first job was cleaning up job sites after school when I was in the 7th grade. I was motivated and wanted to learn as much as I could, my parents encourage me to learn soon advancing to my first job as a Superintendent when I was a senior in high school.
The project was to stabilize a cliff and rebuild 3 parking lots and install guardrails along the edge of the cliffs and parking area next to the lower lighthouse at the point of Point Loma. This project was for the state of California Park Service. The works were done on-time and under budget..
My experience is diverse, derived from not only practical, but also in theory through my studies. Being immersed in the construction industry at an early age gave me an education from the ground up. Starting with land grading to pouring and placing concrete and rebar to rough framing, from western, balloon to post & beam (wood & steel) plumbing, HVAC, including electrical.
I have flipped houses, maintained custom homes as rental properties, trac homes, light commerce, industrial manufacturing faculties, Public schools, hospitals, Indian casinos, Green Energy wind farms, oil & gas industries, road and highways.
Along the way, I have had the good fortune of being surrounded by some of the best tradesmen, Architect and Engineers in the business which I am thankful.
