We highly recommend Chris Fajkos to help find your Tahoe home. Chris was so pleasant to work with, not pushy and down to Earth. We felt he genuinely listened to our hopes and dreams. Even our kids’ perspectives felt valued and recognized. And our dog was also welcome at our meetings and tours. Chris shared all his knowledge with us, and he was easy to communicate with. We are so grateful that Chris helped us find our dream Tahoe home in Martis Camp.

We have used Chris as our agent on both the buy and sell side. He delivered fantastic outcomes on both. On the buy side, Chris was incredibly patient with us as we searched for the right Tahoe property and was able to move quickly once we found the home we wanted. Our offer was accepted immediately and the transaction could not have been easier.We had a little more complexity on the sell side, but Chris put together a comprehensive strategy to market the house. By the time it came on the market, there was already a great deal of interest and demand. We ended up with multiple offers before the first weekend of showings, which is not typical for the Tahoe market. When our first offer fell through because of some undisclosed buyer financial issues, Chris’ calming demeanor kept us from getting overly frustrated. Because he had done such a good job with the initial marketing of the house and had stayed in contact with prospective backup buyers, we were able to quickly select from two new offers within days of bringing the house back on the market. In the end, we ended up getting a much better price with the new offer and the deal closed quickly and smoothly. Simply put, Chris is a joy to work with. He is highly professional without being uptight. He has a calm, kind, and polite demeanor, but also sharp business instincts and a great work ethic. He does not operate on Tahoe time and always prioritizes his client. Additionally, he is well connected and has great instincts with regard to things like pricing, marketing, timing, and evaluating offers. We consider him more than just an agent - he is a true friend and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great agent in the Tahoe area.

Chris partnered with us to find our dream 2nd home in Gray's Crossing. Our experience was characterized by Chris's knowledge, proactive nature, and hustle. He worked with us to hone in on the neighborhoods and home features we wanted, helped us to identify the pitfalls to avoid, hustled to get us the jump on targeted properties, provided sage counsel to structure a thoughtful offer, and was there to provide excellent support throughout the process.Even after the deal has closed, Chris and his team have been there to help us get moved in and settled. We couldn't be happier. For folks looking for a home in Tahoe, you won't go wrong with Chris.

I worked with Chris on my purchase for our second home at Old Greenwood in Truckee. He was the best. I could call him, text or email at anytime, and he responded. Any issues that came up, and he handled them. He made the purchase of our second home, seamless. I would highly recommend using Chris. He is a great guy, great at following through, and did a great job for us. Thanks, Chris. We love it here in Old Greenwood.

Chris is the best! We used him to sell our home and couldn't have been more satisfied. He knows the process inside and out so he was able to address issues/concerns before we even knew it. He provided support to us when things were hectic. He never left us hanging and was always there to answer our myriad questions. If you are looking for a realtor, Chris is the guy!!

Why Do We Love High Ceilings?

June 1, 2019
It's a feature that is so prominent in the Tahoe-Truckee market's inventory: soaring ceilings. From old Tahoe A-Frames to epic mountain contemporary builds, it just doesn't feel like an alpine home without those cathedral like ceilings.
