I was born in El Paso, raised in Van Horn and in Juarez, Mexico. I lived in Midland and 5 years ago moved to New Mexico. I was a stay at home mom until the “Real Estate” bug got me. Knowing how it felt to purchase a home, I knew I could be in service to First time home buyers, Investors, and anyone needing a Broker who cares about their needs. My husband and my two children and we chose to live in Deming. We Love It Here! I’m motivated, knowledgeable, and fortunate enough to have the support of a great team of Brokers at United Country Downtown Real Estate. Who have a total of 76 years of experience in Real Estate to back me up when needed. I’m fluent in English and Spanish and can serve the wide spectrum of real estate needs in our community.
Hi, my name is Christine Farano (my friends call me Chrissy) I'm from Southern California.
Before moving to New Mexico I was a batista for three years in uptown Whittier (where I met my husband in 1999) and was an EMT before starting my large family.
Before leaving California to make deming my permanent home, I was a mother of four.
Since living in Deming, I had four more children, home schooled five of them through elementary and part of middle school, while serving my family as a stay at home mom.
In 2019 I took my safeserve testing and received my certification in food service. In may of 2020, I opened a mobile coffee trailer during the pandemic and had a very successful run in doing so. I served our community for two years.
My goal for 2022 was to was to get my associate brokers license, at that time (May of 2022) I paused my mobile coffee trailer so that i could solely focus on class. Which was a success because I passed all of the requirements in November.
I am currently working at Lescombes winery, where I have come to love my position and my coworkers.
I am thankful for the support of my family and friends that have become family throughout the years and through this process of becoming an associate broker with United Country Downtown Real Estate.
While all of the skills and knowledge employed in handling a real estate transaction are vital to success, I believe the first step in helping either a buyer or a seller is to understand their wants, needs, and goals. That requires listening, asking the right questions, and of course – providing clear and honest answers to their questions. In other words, good communication is key.
Next I give them the information they need to move through the process of buying or selling a home with the least possible stress or uncertainty. My belief is that knowledge of today’s market leads to good decisions. I educate and inform my clients throughout the whole process. When clients know what to expect at each step along the way, it makes the entire transaction more enjoyable and less stressful for everyone.
My favorite part of being a REALTOR® is the opportunity to become acquainted with so many interesting people and helping them realize their dreams and goals. I respect and understand the fact that this isn’t like any other purchase or sale that you make in your lifetime – unless you’re an investor, your home is where you live and possibly raise your family, and for most it is the biggest and most expensive purchase of our lives. I know that being a part of such an important decision making process is a huge responsibility and I take my career very seriously. I try to have empathy for the emotion that goes into buying or selling a home. I understand that this is not just a business transaction this is a big decision that leads to a huge change in people’s lives and I want my clients to know that they have made the right decision and continue to believe that days, months, and years after the transaction is complete.
I am a Texas native who came to Deming with my husband Brendan and our three children Clare, Kaylyn (KK) and Cody in 2007. I am very involved in the community, my church, and my children’s school and extra-curricular activities. The whole Gallagher Family is proud to call Deming home and we have settled here and made so many wonderful friends. We look forward to many wonderful years ahead of us here in Deming.
Today I try and make a difference and gains personal satisfaction from helping my clients reach their dreams of home ownership – or of selling and moving on to life's next adventure. Nothing for me is more satisfying than being next to a new home owner or seller at the closing table and seeing a smile on their face because I helped make this process as stress free and exciting as possible for them and everyone involved.
