"★★★★★
"I honestly wish I could recommend Christen over and over again - she took us from complete fear of the home buying process to complete confidence. She never swayed us or passive aggressively swindled us into anything; she just provided facts, expert advice, and killer negotiation skills. She went above and beyond to help us find our dream first home and we are forever grateful!" - Renée

★★★★★
"I was incredibly nervous as I began the purchasing process as a first-time homebuyer. There was so much I didn't know, anticipate or understand. Christen not only made the process seamless, she made it fun. Many realtors let up once an offer is accepted but Christen leans in. She walked me through an extensive inspection and negotiation process with patience and expertise for a winning result at closing. I can say with certainty that I would not have purchased my home (at lower than asking!!) had it not been for her diligence, patience and extensive knowledge of the Austin market. If you're looking for an enjoyable home buying experience, Christen is your gal!! " - Ali

★★★★★
"Two years ago Christen helped me buy my first home, with out any frustrations might I add. I just finished purchasing my second home with her as my agent and it was even better then the first. There is no pain, or anxiety when you buy a home with Christen. As before, looking forward to the time I purchase a third home; with Christen as my agent." - Eugene

★★★★★
"From our first meeting I got the impression that Christen would be the right agent to help my girlfriend and I find our ideal first home. I had done some home buying 101 research before we met, but honestly, she was actually a better resource than what I found online. Christen knows Austin well, was able to help me understand each step of the process, answered all my questions immediately or followed up very soon, and provided us with solid house options and info/advice on those houses that were in our sweet spot. Even when I got a little short-fused during the option period, Christen was a calming presence and was poised throughout." - Andrew

★★★★★
"As a millennial I am always looking for someone who can understand my needs and show me quickly and effectively what I'm looking for. After going through a few real estate agents I found Christen. She was patient, quick and willing to go above and beyond. She made me feel confident in all my decisions and gave me advice and stats for each one. I've closed my condo and yet she is helping me with additional questions. If you are looking for someone who can help you before and after look no further." - Ara


About Christen
Christen's mission is to provide the highest possible value to clients so they can move forward through their financial decision with confidence, clarity, and wisdom.

From a young age, Christen had a driven, entrepreneurial spirit. She watched her father start and maintain his own businesses with integrity and grit inspired her to become the person she is today. The mindset of conscious business practices and the desire to help others is what drives her as a real estate agent.

Christen graduated from Baylor University in 2014 with a degree in entrepreneurship. While in school, she co-founded a business with friends to aid women in Rwanda. She also spent time sharpening her affinity for critical thinking and sales while doing an internship with a top real estate investment company. These experiences made Christen realize the power that comes with financial independence and the ability to invest in property. She felt strongly that consumers should be aware of the paths available to property ownership.

In 2015, Christen became a Realtor®, moving forward on her journey of helping others through business and investment endeavors. One of her main passions as an agent is guiding and educating first time home buyers, who may feel intimidated by the process. This makes her an invaluable asset to clients who are looking to feel empowered when making this important life decision.

Clients describe Christen as being honest, responsive, and trustworthy, with a keen knowledge of real estate and the purchase process. Although accessible and kind, she’s relentless when pursuing top value for her clients. She believes knowledge is power, and works tirelessly to communicate the most up-to-date and accurate information to all who choose to work with her. She feels that every potential home buyer should be aware of what a caring and hardworking agent can offer.

“I love what I do because it’s about connecting with people and helping them find simple solutions to complex problems.” She says it’s a thrill to exceed clients’ expectations for money earned or saved. Although highly skilled and goal oriented, this is not just a numbers game for Christen. She looks for ways to positively impact the lives of others whenever possible. Data, sales, numbers, and learning are her chief tools on the mission to serve.
