C. Morrow – Caren Christen is a consummate professional. Caren’s level to detail is unmatched. Caren is aggressive and her sense of follow through is superb. Whenever we had a question or concern, she returns our calls promptly and efficiently. Caren’s appearance reflects one of an experienced, confident and professional Realtor, like she is. Caren treats her clients respectfully and her demeanor is positive and motivated. We knew from the first meeting with Caren, that we chose the right person as our Realtor. We are very pleased that we chose Caren Christen to represent us as our Realtor.
J. Trego – We had the privilege to work with Caren on the listing and sale of our home. We selected Caren (based on interviews with 3 different agents) because she had an appreciation for us, as clients, and as the designers and builders of our home. We had invested our hearts and souls into the property and wanted an individual to represent us who understood our commitment to quality and excellence. Caren was that individual. At every turn, Caren was direct and honest, and provided alternative solutions to every question or concern that arose. She is prompt, effective and caring. Her strengths are communication and follow-up and she is totally reliable. Caren helped us to prepare our home for the listing, coached us through some difficult decisions, and delivered a phenomenal result. We are happy that we partnered with Caren and recommend her highly as a competent and diligent professional.
J. Svahn – Caren Christen has been our agent both on the buying side and on the selling side. In a time of difficulty for the residential real estate market, Caren persevered. She never gave up on finding us just the right house. She understood our requirements and did not waste our time looking at properties that did not meet them. When we found our new home (a short sale), Caren guided us through the process in a cheerful and professional manner. Selling our old home was no easy task in the current market either, but Caren remained confident to find that buyer. I can certainly recommend her to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction.
K. Wilkey – As a government worker, I have made several moves. Both buying and selling, I use a realtor. Within one month of moving into our new home in Reno, I was required to relocate. Obviously, both my wife and I were very upset and knew we needed help getting the best price for our home. Upon a colleague’s recommendation, we chose Ms. Christen. From our first interaction with her to the final close, we couldn’t have been more pleased. I found her to be a good listener, fair, kind, and compassionate. The care she showed my wife in that difficult time was beyond any comparison. Thanks Caren.
K. Alie – Ms. Christen has represented our family on four occasions. She is extremely perceptive and tuned into your mind, realizing your needs, style, wants and preferences. She is always on top of her game; responsible, hardworking and professional. Ms. Christen is resourceful, courteous, caring and always available to provide mindful and well-rounded advice. We highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing any type of properties. She is a true gem.
G. Bruce – We just concluded a very successful sale of our home with Caren’s guidance and expertise. Caren’s advice on pricing, staging and marketing led to our home being sold the first day on the market. Caren had everything meticulously planned and organized for a prompt sale once our property went on the market. As far as we’re concerned, if you’re looking for an agent in Northern Nevada, Caren and Chase International are the only way to go.
D. Montgomery – Caren is a hardworking, diligent, and responsive real estate professional who knows the market extremely well. We were living full-time out-of-state while searching for a new home in the Reno area. Caren helped us articulate and prioritize our requirements. She was patient and kind when our thinking wavered and gracious and understanding on those occasions when our travel schedules did not allow us to come up to see the results of her efforts. Once we found our perfect house, Caren arranged all the necessary inspections and worked with the seller’s agent to ensure a smooth escrow and close. Our experience in buying our home could not have been better, and we both highly recommend Caren.
T. Munson – Caren Christen was recommended to help us find our new house in Reno. What a great recommendation!! Caren listened to what we were looking for in a home, the location, the price point and our personalities and interests. She invested a lot of her time getting to know us as clients, making sure we received up to date listings and being very creative and flexible in scheduling showings that accommodated our work and out of town living situation. Caren delivered on all of our “must haves” and we have a beautiful home! Throughout all of this, Caren prioritized our needs and maintained an open, available and consistent means of communication…even when we took a 2-week vacation right in the middle of escrow. Caren is a very dedicated and experienced Real Estate Professional and we would highly recommend her.
J. Benedetti – I highly recommend Caren Christen. Caren is professional, experienced, and thoughtful. She was always on time, very responsive, and worked tirelessly to bring our transaction to a close. We had a very long and stressful home sale with so many twists and turns that we almost lost our new house. Caren was my calming force. Her experience ensured that our house sold for it’s worth. Unlike other realtors we interviewed, she knew the value and realized the love and investment we put into our home. We had multiple offers, and Caren made sure that the right family made it their new home. We are very grateful to Caren, and we are confident that we chose the right Realtor.
K. Cook – Caren Christen came highly recommended as a knowledgeable and reliable agent. She met with us prepared with comps and all the necessary information to get the ball rolling. An offer was given within a few days and I was ready to jump on it. However Caren coached me to be patient and counter at the amount that reflected the area comps. We closed with our asking piece about within 2 weeks! I highly recommend Caren Christen as an honest, knowledgeable and an extremely professional realtor!
M. Brennan – In the real estate business the term “professional” gets thrown around way too often. Caren Christen is someone whom I wholeheartedly believe is deserving of the title Professional. I waited 4 months to write this review to let the honeymoon phase of my house purchase pass. From day one Caren treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. Her knowledge about the local market and housing trends is astounding and unmatched. Without her advice and strategy I would have been outbid on my house. The day my house went on the market she met with me to show the house, drew up an offer and hand delivered the offer after business hours to the seller’s agent. The owners accepted the offer before multiple offers flooded the property the very next day! When I am ready to purchase my second house Caren Christen will be my agent.
R. Booth – Caren help me with an incredibly long house search in the Reno area. I was moving from San Jose, CA, and I knew very little about the Reno area. It took 10 months and about 70 homes. Caren was very, very, patient and we found the right home in north Carson City. Caren is extremely knowledgeable about the Reno, Sparks, and Carson City area. Caren knows process and handled the entire transaction. I can only recommend Caren in the highest way.
K. Richards – Caren is one of the most patient, diligent, and competent people I have ever worked with, regardless of profession. She helped us navigate the purchase of our dream home AND the sale of our home in the worst time of year to try to sell–the holiday season. Caren ensured that everything went as smoothly as possible. When we temporarily lost the opportunity to purchase the home we wanted, she helped us quickly find alternatives to look at. Because of her perseverance, we were able to eventually close on the house we’ve always wanted. Her calming demeanor really helped us through those trying times, dozens of showings and several open houses. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
P. Jones – Caren was a pleasure to deal with on the sale of my home. She was very professional in keeping me updated on market activity and fully representing, promoting and marketing my property. She guided the sale process through a smooth closing very well. She managed the buyer’s agent as well, without bothering me with unacceptable requests. I highly recommend her services.
T. Hartwick – In January 2010, I purchased a property in Reno Nevada. This was far from straight forward as I was living overseas and earning income in a foreign currency. Caren provided an exemplary service. She was efficient and well-prepared at all times, promptly returning phone calls and emails, and answering a myriad of questions concerning bank-owned properties, short sales and foreclosures. What might have proved an extremely stressful venture became, at times, even quite enjoyable, and things would not have come to fruition without her knowledge, efficiency, professionalism, and care. She was consistently cheerful and upbeat, and remained positive and encouraging. Her local knowledge and expertise continue to remain invaluable.
