Introducing – Christen Artino, Temecula Valley Real Estate



Christen Pic...

Christen and her family moved to Temecula in 2008 after living in San Diego her whole life.  She fell in love with the city of Temecula and decided that it was time to grow in the community and what better way to do so than helping people buy and sell homes!

Since 2012 she has worked closely with clients to tailor their experience to meet their needs and guide them through the process of buying and selling real estate.  Working by referral gives Christen the opportunity to spend quality time getting to know clients at deeper levels, working to ensure a satisfying and rewarding real estate experience.

Christen joined The Chamber of Commerce in 2012 and shortly after became a part of VYP.  “Surrounding myself with like minded individuals in VYP who genuinely want to help others succeed is why I am part of this organization-it’s a win-win.”

When Christen is not working with clients, she spends her time watching her children grow and making memories with family.


Review from Jeff Zarnesky,

 “As a first time home buyer, we couldn’t be happier with Christen’s service, communication, and commitment. We had a ton of questions and Christen went above an beyond all of our expectations. We are blessed to have met her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the real estate market (buying or seller). We love our new home! Thank you so much Christen!!!”

Ashlee Collins- Michelle’s Place, Breast Cancer Resource Center- www.MichellesPlace.org


Especially important at Michelle’s Place is the provision of education to those women not yet touched by the disease. They must know that if a lesion is mammographically detected during the early development stage, chance of survival and/or cure rate is raised to a dramatic 95% or more. This is a major improvement over today’s variable survival rates among different ethnic groups, ranging from 55% to 79% – because, like Michelle, many of them are discovering breast cancer too late. It is clear that a very high priority for Michelle’s Place is to help educate everyone in our community, from our young women to our seniors.
