Kaaren Terry is a REALTOR real estate agent with Mountain Farms Realty in Julian, California. A native of San Diego, Kaaren moved to Julian in 1999MoreLess
to get away from the city and live where she spent her vacations as a child. "Living in the mountain is a goal I made to myself as a child."
Kaaren has worn many "hats" over the years before settling into real estate. She raised a large family, was a foster parent to 28 children and adoptive mother of two. She worked for Vons Grocery Company as a checker and department manager. Her love of glass developed into a business as a glass artist; making stained glass windows, kaleidoscopes, and fused glass picture frames which she marketed world wide. She owned a classic fire engine, and gave tours of San Diego while her customers rode in the back. She wrote the contemporary novel, "Across the Creek," which is set in Julian. All these experiences gave her the knowledge of how business and people tick. "Each 'hat' opened the most unexpected doors and taught me to think outside of the box."
Kaaren had extensive experience working in property management before becoming a licensed real estate agent in 1997. She realized she had found her niche; and was excited helping people find a new home. Kaaren shares her skills and enthusiasm with every family to meet their needs and budget. "It doesn't matter if the new home is temporary, permanent, a step up or downsized. My clients have a need and I enjoy fulfilling it."
"My life has been an incredible ride, every day a new learning experience, and the people I have met have made the trip extraordinary. While most of my friends are retiring I have geared up and started a new business. I am living my dream. Living in the mountains in a wonderful community and helping clients find their dream home. Julian is more than an address it's a way of life."
