Get to Know Mary Christenson

I am a top-producing realtor in Bakersfield, California, specializing in the city's finest luxury homes and estate properties. I have provided exceptional local real estate services for 29 years to my clients.

My strong marketing background (10 year advertising/marketing career) paves the way to market my listings with maximum exposure, professional quality photos, and cutting edge technology. Please visit my website: and see 50-photo visual tours of all property listings.

I work with both buyers and sellers and you may be assured that you will have my undivided personal attention and assistance. I have two full time assistants that handle transaction coordination paperwork details, property showing setups for my luxury home listings.   I personally manage my listings and work with buyers to find the home of their dreams. I also enlist the services of a professional home stager, professional photography including aerial photography, and have local printing services to produce high quality, professional marketing brochures.


Luxury Homes and Estate Properties: My very first Luxury Home sale occurred in 1991, when a client asked me to list his newly-completed Stockdale Estates home on Calle Sagrada. After staging the property, I held an open house, bringing in a grand piano with a young aspiring pianist who entertained our guests for the afternoon, hired a caterer prepared marketing materials, and effectively marketed the home, resulting in approximately 200 guests. The home sold to an open house guest's significent other--assisted by their realtor, within 30 days.  That encouraged me to establish my identity as a luxury home niche marketing specialist.  I've been a member of the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing with the prestigous Million Dollar Guild designation since 2005. My luxury home marketing services incorporate 50-photo visual tours for each property listing, as well as individual property websites,  a detailed narrative photo brochure with room by room features, unsurpassed newspaper and magazine advertising and a host of websites including zillow, trulia,,, etc. I am an ASP--Accredited Home Staging Professional, and work with local contractors and service providers to make sure my properties are presented most effectively.
