Our Story & Values

Johnston & Associates Real Estate Inc. was created by Broker/Owner, Joseph Johnston. This independent and boutique business model was built in order to provide a more interactive and involved real estate process for our clients. At Johnston & Associates Real Estate Inc., we strive to exceed expectations. We have an outstanding office environment, which was designed to be a think tank for our Associates. Whether it’s a new creative strategic marketing idea or an exciting technological initiative, we are constantly striving to create new and innovative solutions to better serve our clients. Whether you’re looking to purchase your first home or you’re a savvy investor, our team can be of service to you! We will work with you to identify your short and long term goals to create the best plan for you.


Our business was built on many values, perhaps the most important are: availability, integrity, service, communication, and genuine caring.



At Johnston & Associates Real Estate Inc., we believe that in order to have a successful real estate transaction we need to work around your schedule. We understand our clients have busy schedules, which is why we are committed to being constantly available for our clients. Whether that is on the weekend, weeknight, or in the middle of the day, we are committed to being available for your calls, emails, office visits, and so much more!



There are so many moving parts to a real estate transaction. Constant communication ensures a smooth transaction. We believe that too much communication is not enough. As a valued client, you will need to be “in the know” 100% of the time.



We listen to our clients and understand their needs. It is our priority to see to the well-being of our clients and our teammates.



We believe in doing the right thing no matter what. Being open and honest with ourselves is very important. Making sure we operate with the utmost commitment to excellence in everything we do, write, and say is crucial to a successful real estate transaction.



Our clients’ needs and goals are our number one priority. We aim to be of service in any way possible and strive to go over the top for our clients.

Some of our marketing strategies include but are not limited to the following: social media marketing, open houses, e-newsletters, utilizing the MLS (which is the largest and most effective way to market real estate), professional high definition photography, virtual tours, and many more!

Christopher grew up in Boulder, Colorado and eventually moved to Denver with his wife and two children. Chris started his career in the IT field, working for a reputable company for over 10 years before making the leap into Colorado Real Estate – He has never looked back! Chris has a strong passion for community involvement and for helping individuals and families alike achieve their real estate dreams. For the past four years, Chris has been creating his Real Estate Brand. Beyond a logo, Chris believes that his brand is what will define him to his current and potential clients. Chris’s brand is built on traits such as being trustworthy, an excellent communicator, enthusiastic, prompt, thorough with real estate contracts, tech savvy, and readily available and involved before, during, and after each transaction. Through ongoing education and designations, Chris is a savvy negotiator who helps his clients get the best value for their property or money and will always go to bat for his clients. Chris has a network of professionals and lenders that he regularly works with and trusts, allowing him to offer amazing and reliable referrals to his clients. Chris has acquired his GRI® (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute), CRS® (Certified Residential Specialist), ABR® (Accredited Buyer’s Representative), SRES® (Senior Real Estate Specialist), and SRS® (Seller Representative Specialist) designations, allowing him to be a leading expert in today’s market.

Why Use a REALTOR®? All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. I am committed to treating all parties involved in a transaction honestly. I subscribe to a strict code of ethics, and I am expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. I take being a REALTOR very seriously, and I believe it’s a huge part of what sets me apart from my competition.


“Our realtor Christopher made sure to keep us informed through out our house shopping process. Before we started seeing houses, he set up an area search for our desired locations and refined them as we got a better idea of what we were looking for. Christopher was there for any questions we had and was always accommodating, informative and professional. I would highly recommend him to any one looking for a good realtor.” ~Colin Morrison

“Christopher is excellent!!! He helped us in finding and buying our first home. He listened to our needs and wants and found us a home quickly.

He is a great guy, you will not be disappointed!!” ~Phillip & Janelle Gomez

“Christopher recently sold our 800 sq ft condo in Boulder. We had high expectations going in and Chris met every single one of those! During the process he communicated with us on a daily basis, he helped coordinate repairs and he really made the selling process easy for us from start to finish. We are going to recommend Christopher to our friends and family and use him for all of our future Real Estate transactions.” ~Caroline & James Street

“We highly recommend Chris Manganello as a real estate professional. We have purchased three homes with Chris’ assistance and in each case everything went smoothly. His responsiveness to our needs and over all follow up and follow through are great. We also appreciated the relationships he has forged with other professionals. In one case creating an opportunity that would not have occurred otherwise. His experience and knowledge of the local market conditions and how buyers and sellers think makes him a great resource and real estate coach. Chris is a also just a genuinely nice guy and easy and enjoyable to work with. Do yourself a favor. Hire Chris, you won’t regret it.” ~Rick Pratt

Within seven days of listing the house, it sold for exactly what I wanted. His motivation, energy, and positivity will without a doubt produce the best results for your desires and needs.
