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 1999
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."

      - Will never recommend
      08/08/2012 - user7967401
      Helped me rent a Single Family home in Julian, CA.
      My wife and I rented a beautiful home that Kaaren managed in Julian, California. While the home was wonderful, she certainly was not! On one occasion, she tried to enter our rental when we were out!

      We thought someone tried to break-in! My wife called the Sheriff's Department. Soon after, we found out that Kaaren was responsible. This concerned my wife and I. We are not accustomed to this kind of treatment and we never gave Kaaren our consent to enter.

      Later that year, a portion of our roof was torn off by a BIG windstorm. Kaaren showed little concern for our safety and dragged her feet on the repairs needed. Unfortunately, (two weeks later), a big rainstorm hit and our beautiful rental home was flooded with water!

      If that wasn't bad enough, what she did next was completely unethical. As we stood in the middle of Kaaren's busy Julian office, she apologized for our trouble, asked us to find another rental, and told us that last our last month would be "rent free". I don't know why I believed her at this point... but I did. You can guess what happened next... Kaaren claimed that we skipped out on rent and threatened to evict us even as we were moving out!

      This story has a happy ending... Now 5 years later, my wife and I are proud homeowners! Needless to say, we DID NOT go to Kaaren Terry or Mountain Farms Realty for help with our purchase!!!

      Showed home in 2014.
      I contacted Kaaren about a property just outside her area and she was remarkably helpful. It was not one of her listings, though she volunteered for me to go do a visit and did a number of helpful photos. She knew her Julian area well, and was very informative about so many of the adjoining areas. I chose not to proceed with the particular purchase but would surely want to work with her on other listings which I find or that she shows me in her area.  MoreLess

      Property manage a home.
      You want a smart consciousness person? I've been very impressed by Kaaren's ability and achievements on my behalf. Only having one property and manager (and no comparisons), that's all I can say. I bet she'd be a success at anything she tried.
