Chris Fajkos grew up in Toledo, Ohio and had big dreams of leaving the Rust Belt and heading out West. After spending a decade in the U.S. Coast Guard sailing up and down the Pacific Coast, from Dutch Harbor Alaska to Lima Peru, Chris decided that it was time to leave the service and settle in the Bay Area. From there he finished his BA at San Francisco State University, his MBA at Saint Mary’s College of California, and began directing his attention to the real estate market.
Chris has worked in the public and non-profit sectors, which has allowed him a wide range of experiences. From managing commercial real estate leases and capital improvement projects, to overseeing environmental programs, transportation planning, and telecommunications infrastructure development.
Chris specializes in providing insight that enables consumers to easily navigate the Tahoe-Truckee regions numerous resort communities and define each for their unique package of amenities. Chris's tireless work ethic, coupled with his use of innovative technology, industry knowledge, attention to detail, and sincere desire to help his clients is quickly earning him a stellar reputation in the real estate community.
After a decade of being routine Tahoe weekend warriors, Chris, along with his wife Carlynne, 4-month-old daughter Hazel, and English Bulldog Gwen packed their bags and moved to Truckee in 2015. When Chris isn’t working he can be found snowboarding or playing ice hockey in wintertime, kayaking and hiking in the summertime, or just simply spending time with family and friends.
