Naturally inquisitive, Christen started her real estate career at an unusually young age. As a child she regularly interrupted her parents, both real estate professionals, with questions while they worked from their home offices. Eventually, her mother, a real estate attorney and her father, a seasoned real estate agent and investor, yielded to her repeated requests for permission to read their contracts and disclosures. After spending several months studying documents in her “briefcase”, Christen announced that she was ready to start helping them with their work. From that point forward she did just that. What started out as parent’s attempts to occupy and challenge their young daughter has blossomed into a successful career and lifelong passion.
A Los Angeles native, Christen has over 16 years of local real estate experience. She started her career as an escrow assistant and quickly earned the designation of Escrow Officer where her penchant for preparation, prompt response, and attention to detail made her popular with clients. Setting her sights on having a stronger technical knowledge of each role played in a real estate transaction, she transitioned into sales and investment real estate where discovered her true calling.
Her strong desire to provide high quality service to clients and contribute to their lives and success led her to begin analyzing existing systems and products utilized by real estate professionals. She quickly saw an opportunity to develop custom methods, better suited to the needs of her organization and their clients. Christen is pleased to provide every client with care and luxury service that is personal and tailored to their individual preferences and needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $625K in North Central, Pasadena, CA.
Christen always had our best interests in mind. She took the time to walk through every home we were interested in before we put an offer in on a house to make sure our offer was perfect for the home. Christen treated our home buying experience like she was buying her own home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA.
My experience with Christen was top tier. She is totally knowledgeable in all aspects of the deal -- negotiating, paperwork, etc. Plus she was professional in strategizing and implementing all aspects of the sale (at a very difficult time of year) from pricing, to staging, to dealing with inspectors and contractors, the buyers and their agent, as well as the escrow company. Thanks to her, we managed to close escrow nearly on schedule despite last minute funding delays.
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $700K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.
Christen's professionalism and attention to detail is superb. She helped us craft our offer for a very competitive home and we won, beating out 8-10 other offers! She helped us move through a very short inspection timeline by bringing in her team of experts and even getting the purchase price decreased. She kept us abreast of the offer and purchase status every step of the way, educating us and providing her expertise when we needed it. We will definitely work with Christen again and would recommend her to others.
