As Earnnest has grown into one of the real estate industry’s leading earnest money deposit and digital payments solutions, there are few folks who have played as big of a role as Chris Basinger. Basinger is the vice president of strategic partnerships at Earnnest. He was Earnnest’s first sales hire, and he is the longest-standing current employee that has had a hand in every one of Earnnest’s major partnerships.
Basinger joined the Earnnest team in 2019. It was his first role in the real estate technology industry, but he built a successful track record of bringing transformative products to market. Today, Basinger continues to drive adoption of Earnnest’s award-winning digital payments platform with industry-leading brokerages, title companies, real estate attorneys, lenders and proptech companies across the country. Basinger has played an integral part in building the collaborative, customer-centric culture at Earnnest.
What is one thing you would tell a younger version of yourself?
Treat self-doubt as a challenge. While you take the biggest risks and do the things that scare you most, embrace the human part of yourself that’s most authentic; the part that leads to successful partnerships.
