I’ve been a full time realtor since 1993, and after almost 24 years in the business and thousands of transactions under my belt, I still love it! 

At Living Room Realty I facilitate individual agents’ business development, am a member of the Broker Advisory Group which provides direction for the company, and lead a Roommates group which allows agents to share ideas for improving their business practices. I feel very fortunate to come to work every day and do what I love. I grew up here in SE Portland, attended our neighborhood schools and live just five minutes from my childhood home.

I never even thought about moving away. I love to travel, but Portland is my home.

When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteering at my kids’ schools. I’m known for throwing an epic class party! Before I had kids, I never knew I’d also enjoy being a “soccer Mom” as much as I do. When I have a free moment, I love to hop on my bike and ride down to the waterfront from Mt. Tabor where I live. Biking through the neighborhoods is a nice way to stay in touch with the city, and also stay in shape! When I feel like I want more of a challenge, I’ll add the climb up Mt. Tabor. It’s good ride with the reward being the view from the top of the park.

Besides Portland, my family’s second home in Central Oregon is my favorite place. We escape there every chance we get, and love to explore the endless hiking trails, lakes, rivers and other natural wonders the high desert has to offer. Snowboarding on Bachelor is at the top of our winter activities list. We just love nature. Our two dogs love it too, and we take them almost everywhere with us!

I’m an avid gardener. Meandering through Portland Nursery, even if I don’t buy anything, almost feels like a mini vacation. My Mom taught me a lot about tending a garden, but I also might have gotten my interest in gardening from my ancestors who were among the first settlers of Sauvie Island. My maiden name is Charlton, and a few of us still live and work there. There’s even a road named after my family. The kids think that’s pretty cool.

My family has deep roots in Portland. I’m a true Oregon native, local SE girl, Mom and business woman. And, I’m passionate about working in the city and neighborhoods that I love.

Cristen's Testimonials

Cristen Lincoln is a great Real Estate agent, and highly recommended. She was my agent for both selling a house and buying one (three years apart). For the sale, Cristen came in and succeeded where another agent (from a huge national chain realty company that shall remain nameless) had failed miserably. Cristen told us what to do to the house, helped us set the price, and kept the little box full of flyers at all times. The house, which had been on the market for months, sold in a couple weeks after we brought Cris on board, and we netted about $100K. Then, about three years later, I was ready to buy my next house, so I went straight to Cristen this time. She showed me a ton of houses, and she was really good at noticing flaws that my starry eyes missed. When I finally found the right one, of course it was out of my price range. Cristen Lincoln to the rescue! She did a little detective work, and some excellent negotiating, and I ended up getting the house at a great price that was right in my budget. If I ever decide to move again, or win the lottery and just feel like buying more houses, I'll be calling Cristen Lincoln right away. Buying/selling a house is a huge deal, and having a great agent that I can trust is everything. If you've ever dealt with real estate agents, then you know how hard it is to find an honest one who actually has your best interest at heart; I'm so glad I finally found mine!
