My name is Christen Stratford. I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived within the Inland Empire for nearly a decade with my husband and our two beautiful children. The areas I mainly serve consist of places that I have lived at which includes the Inland Empire (San Bernardino and Riverside County), Los Angeles and Orange County. With that said, I am able to give insight into the lifestyle the community affords to investors, first-time buyers and families. As a REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Blackstone Realty, I have extensive resources and abilities to effectively assist those with real estate needs anywhere throughout the country. However, my greatest passion is helping and getting to working with California residents and people moving into the area. In addition to my extensive list of resources, I also have a great team to work with which includes escrow, a direct lender, title reps, and various home inspectors. I specialize in working with both buyers and sellers, so whatever your needs are, I am up for the task and ready to help you make the right move!!
I take great pride in my work and have a strong work ethic that I learned from my family growing up! For every listing I take, I become an expert in that area/community. I can sell a home in any city because I do the research that it takes to know everything I need to know about the neighborhood comps, the specific home, school district, entertainment and much more! I go the extra mile to become a local expert, even if I don’t live in that particular city.
In addition, I have more than 10 years’ experience in Real Estate and Sales. While attending college for my Bachelor’s degree, I worked at Nordstrom as a top producing sales associate. After graduating with my Bachelor’s degree, I worked for the Irvine Company managing a collection of retail coastal properties. I then decided to venture into commercial real estate working for CBRE. After I had my first child, I realized that I wanted to be more in control of my time, so I became a REALTOR and began my career in Residential Real Estate, which by far, has been the most fulfilling and rewarding for myself and my family. With that said, although I continue to learn more every day, I feel that I am an expert at what I do! I am compassionate, driven and I give 150% to all of my clients!!
