Columbus Team Bios
Chris DiSilvestri – Owner
Chris DiSilvestri has been an entrepreneur for the past 18 years of his life. In the past 15 years he has been involved in businesses that have provided delivery and installation both residential and commercial. Chris has developed several businesses, systems and practices that have focused on the move solutions for clients. The main focus has been to protect client’s value during the move process mainly with assets that need to be decommissioned. Chris has noticed where items that have great value have been misrepresented, put in storage, or thrown out. He wants to represent clients by helping them with the process of evaluating their assets and then determining the best route that will save them money and time. Solutions he has pioneered are auctions, retail, storage inventory system that allow auction or retail on items while they are in storage at any time, and a donation program called, Furnishing Hope.
Chris is a Boy Scouts Troop Leader and serves on the Board for Professional Career Development Network. In 2013, Chris started the Furnishing Hope program in an effort to help provide charities with funding through selling reusable furniture that has been donated by businesses in the community. The Furnishing Hope program has dispersed over $30,000 to local charities so far, with hopes of expanding that number in the future.
Chris looks forward to working with clients, saving them time and money so they can work on what they do best without having to worry about all the factors that arise when relocation a business.
