About Me

It’s a common story...I moved to Tahoe City 25 years ago, to ski for one season after college and then promptly forgot about leaving…

I came for the winters but I stay for the summers. I am very fortunate to call North Lake Tahoe & Truckee my home. I feel grateful to be raising a family here. My husband and I ski as much as possible and love living in paradise with our two daughters and two dogs. The Sierra Nevada Mountains and Lake Tahoe are truly a national treasure and the benefits of living here for over the years have enriched my life in so many ways. I love sharing my knowledge of the area and our unique real estate market with others. My passion is cultivating lifelong clients, who are interested in living an amazing Tahoe lifestyle. I enjoy getting to know people and helping them realize their real estate dreams. My approach is to make sure folks feel well advised and supported during the transaction from start to finish.

From working in high end hospitality and events, I segued into real estate with the support and encouragement of my business partner and ski buddy, Stephanie Fillinger. The mentoring I’ve received from her over the years goes above and beyond the call of duty. She is one of the most ethical and hardworking people I know.  Our joining the Carr Long team, seemed like a natural fit. Their mission, caring about clients above all else, is in line with everything I believe in. I had the pleasure of getting to know Don Carr and Mark DiGiacomo at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe while I worked toward getting my real estate license. It just felt right when years later, Mark mentioned Tori and Don might be expanding the Carr Long Team. I am thankful to have such a great team to collaborate with.

 

 

 

Testimonials

We are so appreciative to have had Christy assist us through the home buying process here in Truckee. As first time buyers the steps can be intimidating but with her expertise and her knowledge of the area, we had a contract signed on a house we were very excited about. She truly listens to to her clients wants and needs. She cared about us.

- Daniella Rinaldi, Truckee Buyer

We were dealing with a complicated contingency. The purchase of our new vacation property depended on the sale of our old one. Christy was very efficient in ensuring a simultaneous close. Thanks to Christy, no powder days were lost! We will use her again.

-Matthieu & Taryn Boiteau, San Francisco Seller & Buyer

As out of area buyers, we were so glad to have Christy on our side. Her knowledge of the area and local ordinances and guidelines are second to none. She was patient and kind. We would recommend her to others because it was clear she understood our need to have things explained in detail as well as keep us updated in a timely manner once the ball got rolling. Her devotion and negotiation skills got us in our price range. Our new home appraised for $10K over sale price!

-Jared & Vanessa Hosefros, Truckee Buyers

We hired Christy after being fooled into thinking we could navigate the Truckee market without a buyer's agent. She came highly recommended from a friend and her performance from initial contact to closing unequivocally supported that recommendation. She played as big a role as our stress counselor as she did an agent, and in a market like ours, that's exceptionally valuable. Christy has our highest recommendation, and we hope other Truckee locals get to work with her.

- Craig and Karen Rowe, Truckee Buyers

Christy was fantastic. She took the time to show us many properties and all the comps while we slowly zeroed in on the area around Lake Tahoe and then the home we wanted. She made herself available to us. She was caring and she gave us great service. Her local market knowledge was outstanding.

- Richard and Susan Heitmann, Tahoe City Buyers from Walnut Creek

I met Christy before I even moved to Tahoe while on a bike ride. We exchanged contact information. I was impressed how she kept in touch with me before I was even looking to buy in Tahoe--nearly two years. When we found the house we wanted she not only emailed us the comps but toured us through 12 homes to ensure we felt confident with our decision and the price. Christy was with us every step of the way through the entire closing process, answering questions, keeping us on schedule and making us feel at ease and calm. After we closed on the house she continued to stay in touch referring us to multiple tradesmen for our upgrades and renovations. I would highly recommend Christy and her team to anyone looking to buy in the Tahoe Truckee area.

- Anne Artoux, Carnelian Bay Buyer from San Francisco

Great agent! Listens, asks questions to understand your needs and writes things down. Excellent local market knowledge, very strong skills in marketing our house. Christy was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her.

- Bob and Jennifer Mahoney Tahoe Donner Buyers and Sellers from Danville

My husband and I just purchased a beautiful house in Serene Lakes with the amazing help of Christy Mond. And to be honest, because of her strong work ethic, and ease to work with, we will continue to recommend her to our other friends in the future.
