Ratings & Reviews

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. And then north Carson City. And then Gardnerville/Minden area. 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, 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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in South Reno, Reno, NV.

Caren is a wonderful agent. I was an out of state purchaser, so I really needed someone with knowledge of the local market and someone who was responsive to all my questions and scheduling needs. Caren was very attentive and responsive to all my questions, she was able to refer me to many other helpful professionals and she made the entire process much easier for us. I recommend using her for any of your real estate needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Southwest, Reno, NV.

We spent months looking for the right house for us and Caren was with us all the way. It was a time-saver to have someone do the preliminary legwork allowing us to visit the homes that fit our criteria. Eventually, we found our home and Caren helped us with the buying process, negotiating with the seller's agent, and our dealings with the title company. She went the extra mile and it was a pleasure to work with a true professional. Bill and Vicki

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Los Altos Hills, CA.

Caren did a fabulous job for us! She is a hard working, 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 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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Sparks, NV.

Caren is an excellent realtor. She knows her business, and she knows the greater Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area. She effectively manages the process throughout and maintains steady contact. We were working with Caren during a "hot market" and, undoubtedly, she had lots going on. Yet she provided very personal, attentive, diligent service. Unfortunately, during a critical stage in our purchase, Caren had a bicycling accident and suffered a dislocated shoulder. Still, she managed to stay on top of things and even called us from her hospital bed. She's a professional!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Southwest, Reno, NV.

Caren was a pleasure to deal with on the sale of my home. She was very professional in keeping me updated on market activity. She guided the sale process through closing very well. She managed the buyers agent well without bothering me with unacceptable requests. I highly recommend her services. Thank you.

Bought a home in 2013 in Vista, Sparks, NV 89434.

I’ve known Caren since spring of 2007, right before the Great Recession began. She helped me try to sell my house in the north valleys, but the pending calamity was no match and I stayed there for 6 years, trying to find a way to move back to my beloved Sparks, Nevada. I stayed in touch with her in the ensuing 6 years, gauging the market, and evaluating my options. Well, in July of last year, she pointed me in a new direction and I got my financial positioning in order. We began looking for a house in April 2013 - when inventory was non-existent. I periodically had mini panic attacks that I wouldn’t find a home. She kept telling me the right house was out there and we’d find it. By great preparation, research and action, she showed me the perfect house in May and I moved in July!

Caren is professional, hard working, ethical, kind, knowledgeable, full of humor and just an all round great gal to work with and more importantly, to know. She knows the northern Nevada market, has reliable and reputable working relationships with various professionals necessary to a sale, from financing to closing. Caren is a “get it done” kind of agent. And, she’s available it seems like any day, any time. Heck, I don’t work that hard!

I highly recommend Caren as your agent, whether buying or selling, you will not be disappointed.

Caren - thanks again! You’re awesome!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Sparks, NV.

Caren Christen's name was given to us by our realtor in San Diego. She recommended her because of her excellent reputation. Caren was patient and encouraging in a very difficult buyer's market. We finally found exactly what we wanted, at a price that was reasonable. We love our new home. We highly recommend Caren for any of your realty needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Northwest, Reno, NV.

Caren is knowledgeable about the entire Reno area. She does her homework and is always prepared. With this crazy housing market, she was able to be flexible as houses came on the market and quickly moved to escrow. Caren was extremely positive throughout the entire process of us buying our home. She answered any questions we had and provided us with helpful information about services in the Reno area. Caren is very patient and personable. We brought our two daughters with us on most of our house hunting trips and Caren was great with them. Even after we successful purchased a home in the Reno area, Caren continues to answer our questions and follows up quickly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Southwest, Reno, NV.

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 steered 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— open houses, the internet, realtor tours, etc. — to find that buyer. I can certainly recommend her to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction.
