Chris is an absolute gem of a Tahoe Realtor!
Chris is an absolute gem of a Tahoe Realtor! He is hard-working and an absolute pleasure to have on our house-hunting team. His extensive knowledge about the Truckee resort communities, including Schaffer’s Mill, Lahonton, Martis Camp, Old Greenwood and Gray’s Crossing, helped us make an informed decision about what would work best for our family and our investment. Chris went above and beyond our expectations as we toured homes and ultimately found one we loved. He even helped orchestrate deliveries and the hauling away of unwanted items. Chis has a very “no-pressure” attitude, which lines up perfectly with his friendly and helpful personality. Chris and his family are a part of the Truckee community and are connected to helpful resources that helped us get settled into our new space. After we closed escrow, Chris delivered the most thoughtful basket of gifts that showed how much he really paid attention to our family and what mattered to us. Really, we should have been the ones showering Chris with gifts for all that he did for us! Jennifer 4/10/24

Chris was all we could ask for in a realtor
Chris was all we could ask for in a realtor as a first-time buyers—lending his time, knowledge, connections, and advice during the entire process. He followed our lead for the pace in which we our search was progressing, moving fast when we needed it and keeping us updated from afar. Chris is very professional and trust worthy, we hope to work with him again in the future! Dana 2/21/24
Chris went above and beyond
Chris worked with us over a 12+ month period trying to find our perfect Tahoe getaway. Living permanently in Ohio brought challenges, but Chris went above and beyond to give video tours and recordings using his GoPro. This enabled us to gain confidence in the target properties and make competitive offers from afar. Ultimately we bought our dream location that is walking distance from Heavenly and we are so happy. We have now done three transactions with Chris (two purchases, one sell) and would not hesitate to do a third!! Jennifer 6/6/23

An Incredibly Strategic Listing Agent
Chris sold our Truckee house for us and it was a great experience from beginning to end. As soon as we made the decision to list our home, he handled everything in such a timely and professional manner. We felt very taken care of working with him and would do so again. Chris is very knowledgable, thorough, and supportive with all the emotions that come up when selling your home. I highly recommend choosing Chris as a realtor if you value working with someone who is a good person and treats you with respect. 3/15/2021 Ben & Kelley
A truthful and always genuine agent
We were essentially casually looking at moving to Tahoe...but with dream level ambitions. Chris met us where we were, spoke truth about the market, was patient through our search and the handled our ultimate offer and purchase seamlessly. He was available, knowledgeable, consultative and always genuine. We are hopeful Chris will be a long time friend and connection now that we successfully purchased our dream home. Thank you Chris! 12/5/2020 Micah & Kristen
The Proactive Hustler You Need in Truckee
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! 10/5/2020 Lowell & Stephanie
Great Experience, Great Agent
We 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. 9/30/2020 Jeff & Christa
A very flexible and strategic agent
Chris came recommended to us by a good friend who had an amazing experience working with him to purchase their Martis Camp home. So when it was time for us to explore buying our weekend getaway at Northstar, they didn't hesitate to introduce us. We started our search during Covid-19 shelter in place, and Chris went over and beyond to accommodate our needs and be mindful of health and safety. He was very flexible and strategic as we were up against an increasingly competitive market knowing we had a window to get the house we wanted at a price that we felt good about. Even after deal closed, he has continued to help us as we settle in and navigate minor repairs and upgrades. While super knowledgeable about the local market and the process, he was very responsive yet very calm and reassuring - very professional and friendly all the way through closing. 9/27/2020 Joel & Danielle
Professional, Responsive and Honest
When it comes to working with real estate agents, we wanted someone who was honest, professional, smart, AND someone who we liked as a person. Chris came highly recommended and we were glad he was our real estate agent. Chris is knowledgeable about the Tahoe real estate market. Chris knew all of the different areas in Tahoe, what to look for, and where to focus. He took the time to understand our needs by helping us hone in on what exactly we were looking for. He kept us informed without ever pressuring us. He was responsive to all of our questions and calls and had a professional opinion that helped guide our decision-making and negotiations. Chris will have YOUR best interest at heart. I highly recommend him. 2/22/21 Rob & Anita
Chris is a class act
Chris was incredibly helpful in our vacation home buying process. He was knowledgeable about all the various communities in the Truckee region, took the time to show us a wide range of options, and helped us pick the perfect fit. We've now owned our property for about 6 months and am very happy with the whole process. Chris is definitely a class act. 6/30/2020 Eric
We found our DREAM Tahoe home
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 three kids’ perspectives felt valued and recognized. And our Sheltie Snoopie 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. 3/29/20 Peter & Stephanie
Highly likely to recommend
Chris has been a total delight to work with. He is very responsive, easy to talk to, and very transparent when it comes to asking and answering questions. He always went above and beyond. We don't live full time in Truckee so he was always willing to work around our schedule. Full of good information and advice. I highly recommend working with Chris. 09/11/2019 Philip & Karen
A great agent!
Chris helped us purchase a beautiful house in Kings Beach. He knows all the ins and outs of Tahoe real estate and was very helpful with an especially challenging seller. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a buying agent in North Lake or Truckee! 12/31/18 Cody & Katie
Highly likely to recommend
Chris just helped me close on my first house in Truckee and was awesome to work with. He really helped me navigate the process while making it convenient and stress-free. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Truckee / Tahoe area. 07/24/2018 Tommy Lloyd Davies
Strategic and Highly Professional
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. 10/1/18 Jef & Helene
