About Chris

Chris Reino’s second home and resort property sales roots run deep as does his love for the McCall, Idaho area. He was one of Tamarack Resort’s original 12 employees after he was recruited to start the real estate sales program for what was then WestRock Resort. This followed his 2 year tenure at Spring Mountain Ranch in McCall, where he offered vacation homes and real estate.  After 5 years at Tamarack, over a year with Prudential Resort Properties in Donnelly, Chris’s career shifted to McCall where he spent 4 years at Community Real Estate.  In June of 2013 he was recruited to re-start the real estate sales efforts at Whitetail/Shore Lodge, where he had 18 months of successful selling, Chris is thrilled to have joined McCall Real Estate where he can represent Tamarack, Whitetail,  plus other area options to buyers & sellers.

Chris is from a small town in Northwest Ohio. He credits his father’s mentoring while working in the family’s third-generation commercial laundry and dry-cleaning business with helping him develop the strong customer service and sales orientation that has served him and his clients so well. He started his work career at the tender age of 12 sweeping floors and later apprenticing in every aspect of the business to earn money for college. After those efforts, Chris followed his love for the mountains and obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Utah State University.

After graduation, Chris continued with the family business until his return to the West in 1996, where he furthered his sales career in the residential sales and customer service call center for US WEST Telecommunications in Boise, Idaho. Soon after that, he discovered the mountain community of McCall. He built what was to be a 2nd home in McCall that eventually became his full time residence when he started with Spring Mountain Ranch in 2000.

Reflections on McCall

I consider Valley County an amazing place to live, work and most importantly PLAY and would love to share with you my enthusiasm for the many real estate and recreation options we enjoy in the mountains of west central Idaho.  Whatever you are into in the great outdoors, its world class here!  I pride myself on providing unparalleled service and look forward to developing a long-term relationship with you.

My passions are skiing (alpine and Nordic) in the winter.   Summertime finds me on a road, cyclocross or mountain-bike riding & touring.  I have been spending a lot of quality time on Payette Lake stand up paddle boarding. I invite you to ask me to show you the area’s spectacular offerings and amenities on skis or by bicycle or SUP—though I am happy to accommodate you with other modes of transportation!
