After twenty-three years in the real estate industry, Chrissie is happy to have partnered with a company whose values are closely aligned with her own. What sets Harcourts Prime Properties, and Chrissie, apart from the other Brokers and Realtors®? Four things: #1 People first #2 Do the right thing #3 Be courageous #4 Fun and laughter Chrissie understands the key to success in real estate: is the “Client”. She is in a great position, where she carefully selects and mentors her Associates based on her own experience as a successful Real Estate Agent. To make the Harcourts Prime Properties roster, an Associate must have a “client-first attitude.” Chrissie feels that when an agent has the right people skills, doing the right thing comes naturally. Her philosophy is that if you always serve the client's best interests, the business will follow. She encourages her Associates to think outside the box when building their book of business or when creating a marketing plan for their client’s property. She encourages them to move outside their comfort zone to find better ways to serve their clients. Chrissie has demonstrated success for her agents by disrupting the broken traditional real estate model by implementing Harcourt's innovative approach . Chrissie encourages her agents to be consistent, resilient, and maintain their focus on their clients while building their business.

    Alejandro Rojas

    CalBRE# 01750434REALTOR®

    Alejandro was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, the oldest of three siblings, in a humble but thriving family. He graduated from Universidad Distrital Francisco Jose de Caldas in Forest Engineering. After working in the industry for some years, he traveled to Managua, Nicaragua where he obtained a Master Degree in Business Administration at INCAE-Harvard. Back in Colombia, and now as a Professor, he joined Universities like Los Andes and La Salle. Always with the desire of growing intellectually, he went to the University of South Carolina obtaining his second Master Degree in International Business. As a very accomplished graduate, he was hired as General Manager by an American company to work in Bolivia which allowed him to travel all around South America, Europe and Asia. In 1984, Alejandro returns to Colombia and together with some friends, they founded FEXADE, a technical institute fully approved by the Department of Education. Later on, Alejandro went to the University of El Rosario as the Dean of the School of Administration. In 1993, the major of Bogota appoints Alejandro as the Director of Cadastre, position he held until January 1998. During his tenure, he guided his team and developed the Digital Map for Bogota, which still today is used as one of the most important tools for the land management of the city. The difficult safety situation Colombia was experiencing at the end of the decade, drove Alejandro to make the decision to move his family to the United States in 2001 and he chooses Carlsbad to settle down. As an independent lender, licensed by the Department of Corporations, and hand by hand with his wife Yolanda, Alejandro continues his career in the Real Estate business and form The Homes and Lending Team, especially as financial and investment advisor. Later on, he decided to also go for his license as a Realtor. Alejandro Rojas has always dedicated his life to the service of people in all the different stages of his life and all fields he has put his energy and knowledge into, with passion and responsibility.

    My career as a Real Estate Agent began in 2001 however my life in the U.S began in 1979 when I immigrated here from the Philippines to join my sister. I became a military spouse and moved frequently finally settling down with my family here in North County. As a military spouse and now military mom I have a special place in my heart for helping those in uniform attain their dream of homeownership. I take pride in volunteering on Camp Pendleton and feel privileged to be able to sponsor different events on base. My focus is to work tirelessly to make sure those in uniform receive the level of service they deserve. I put these same efforts into each and every person I represent resulting in industry awards while working with Century 21 and more importantly, repeat business.

Here are just some of the ways I can provide you with excellent service: Find Your Next Home You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. Sell a Home When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close. Consult on Home Selling Tactics Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

    Donna Henning-Howell

    CalBRE# 01191994REALTOR®

    I started in Real Estate in the early 1990's and received my Sales Associate license in the fall of 1993. I finished my college education and graduated with a degree in Real Estate from Palomar College in 1996. I also continued on with my Real Estate courses and completed my Certification in Real Estate as well. My career started with a top producer in the city of Carlsbad and I trained under her superior eye and teaching skills. I was an assistant and a buyers agent for her for 5 years. With the changing of companies, I started selling in the tri city area to include Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista. I soon began working with Family Law Attorneys and Trust Attorneys in the area. Soon I was handling many divorce sales and persons going from independent living into assisted living services. I believe my compassion and empathy helped me become a trusted Realtor with these clients. In the early 2000's, the Real Estate market changed as well as the lending business. I found many of my clients who purchased homes were now faced with foreclosures, and divorces because of the monumental stress related to our Real Estate Meltdown. I studied and became a member of the Distressed Property Institute. This has helped me with my clients in helping them with their properties. Through this process I became a Certified Distressed Property Expert. I have since helped more than 50 families avoid foreclosure and sell their home in a short sale, rather than foreclosing and ruining their credit and livelihood. I have gained trust from my fellow Realtors and have helped many of the Real Estate agents in this area by assisting them with their short sale clients.

    I began my Real Estate career in 2004 as I retired from the Marines. Since that time I worked through both the highs and lows of the real estate market gaining valuable, firsthand experience, along the way. That experience has led me to believe that trust and personal relationships lead to success and those are the traits I seek to establish and build with those I work with. Transactions come and go but the trust built during those transactions and the relationships that are established is what lasts. My long term success was built on these beliefs which is why I am still fortunate enough to offer my services in this business. I continue to progress along the way obtaining my Brokers License in 2008, completing a BA degree in Business Management in 2010 and achieving a Master Degree in Business Administration in 2012.
