Client Testimonials


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. So we started in Reno and visited many, many homes in the southwest area and the south suburban area. And then on to Hidden Valley, North Carson City, Gardnerville/Minden areas... It took 10 months and about 70 homes. Caren was very, very, patient, especially given how much time it took. Along the way we missed out on one home in south suburban and one in Genoa but finally found a home in north Carson City. Caren is extremely knowledgeable about the Reno, Sparks, and Carson City area. Caren knew all the procedures for completing the purchase and handled all the inspections. In the end it worked out great and I can only recommend Caren in the highest way.

K. Cook - After inheriting my parent’s home, I knew the next step was to put the house on the market. Not knowing what avenue to take, I decided to ask some of my friends and neighbors. A friend of my neighbor was very interested in the house. Not wanting to attempt to go through the selling process without a professional at my side, I decided to ask my friends for a recommendation. Caren Christen came highly recommended as a knowledgeable and reliable agent. Put a call into Caren in which she answered her phone right away, that was a good sign. She came to the house prepared with comps and all the necessary information to get the ball rolling. An offer was given within a few days (by the neighbor’s friend) at the dollar amount I wanted and I was ready to jump on it, however, Caren coached me to be a bit more patient and raise the amount that reflected the area comps. All the while Caren kept an open line of communication with me and answered all my questions. We closed with our asking about within 2 weeks! I highly recommend Caren Christen as an honest, knowledgeable and an extremely professional realtor!

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 have heard the same comments from all those that interact with Caren. We are very pleased that we chose Caren Christen to represent us as our Realtor.

M. Moore - She made the whole process virtually painless. Having spent almost two years looking for a home in the 89521 and 89511 zips and going thru 4 -5 real estate agents, I was skeptical of the whole agent pool in Reno. Even those I considered friends acted as though they were doing me a favor by returning a call or text. Caren found the house. I never saw the place in the MLS. Caren called me the day before Thanksgiving took time to show me the house when she was trying to prepare dinner for the next day and had my offer accepted the day after Thanksgiving! There is no better agent in the area!!!

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; she was always there to help us in any way she could. During one particularly stressful period, Caren (unbeknownst to us at the time) passed up her vacation to work with us. She truly is a treasure! Caren's 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. 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 tried to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible, even though we had tons of ups and downs with potential buyers falling through and backing out. When we temporarily lost the opportunity to purchase the home we wanted, she helped us quickly find alternatives to look at. But 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.

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 that the right buyer could be found. She used all the tricks in a Realtor’s basket to find that buyer. I can certainly recommend her to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction.

B. Russell - I have worked with Caren for over 15 years. She is a true professional and has a deep knowledge of Real Estate in Northern Nevada. She is devoted to her Clients from the moment she has contact with them and through any Real Estate needs they have in the future. Caren is one hundred percent committed everyday

M. Brennan - In the real estate business the term "professional" gets thrown around way too often. Caren Christen is someone whom I whole heartily believe is deserving of the tittle 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 upmost 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.

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 with the help of Caren Christen, my real estate agent. 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 e-mails, 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.

B. Nugmanan - Caren's knowledge, skills and professionalism are superb. We purchased our Reno home while living in Bay Area. Over the course of several months she has gone the proverbial extra mile for us, always working hard to find that house that would perfectly balance our requirements, yet never rushing us into any haste decisions. Once we made the selection, she worked tirelessly helping us though the inspections and closing. We recommend her highly.

K. Alie - Ms. Christen has represented our family on three occasions since 2000. 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.

D. Montgomery - Caren did a fabulous job for us! She is a hardworking, diligent, and responsive real estate professional who knows the Reno market extremely well. We were living full-time out-of-state while searching for a new home in Reno. Caren showed us a variety of properties in Reno and Incline over a long weekend, astutely listened to our reactions to the houses and neighborhoods we saw, and helped us articulate and prioritize our requirements. Over the next eighteen months, Caren then continued to work on our behalf, carefully showing us only those properties that met our criteria. 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 to Reno 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.

C. Genin - We sold our California home with an unexpected 10 day close of escrow with the intent of relocating to Reno. Luckily for us, our selling agent recommended Caren to help us find our Reno home. Her knowledge of the local area and the time she took to ascertain exactly what we were looking for was highly invaluable in finding the perfect home in a very limited time frame. And her negotiating skills were extremely invaluable in successfully and smoothly closing the deal.
