BORN AND RAISED IN EAGLE ROCK, BUYER SPECIALIST CHRIS VARGAS KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS THE COMMUNITIES OF NORTHEAST LOS ANGELES like the back of his hand. Chris attended local schools (Westminster, Eagle Rock Elementary, and St. Dominick's) before graduating from St. Francis in La Canada.
Chris brings to his position skills and abilities acquired from his widely varied background and interest in the arts. He began his professional life working in production for feature films and television (including Dexter, Iron Man, and Transformers) right out of high school.
He decided to explore his interest in music by attending the Musician's Institute in Hollywood, studying drum set performance and the music business. While developing his training, Chris honed his people skills at a publicity agency in downtown Los Angeles as a Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator. There he developed social media strategies and influencer activations for clients such as Nike, Pepsi Co, and Supreme.
While apprenticing with a finish carpenter and general contractor, Chris became interested in real estate.
““Having grown up in Eagle Rock, I was aware of the wide range of styles of homes lining these beautiful streets,” says Chris. “As a contractor, I got go see and admire more of these characterhomes, both inside and outside, their yards and even the layout of the streets and neighborhoods. Since I enjoy working with people and appreciate the homes and neighborhoods of this special area, exploring real estate made obvious sense.””
Chris received his real estate license in 2014 and was mentored by the Partners Trust La Canada office prior to joining the Tracy King team. Chris brings to the team outstanding client service, understanding of technology, marketing skills, and a deep understanding of the local real estate market.
He is thrilled to be working in the neighborhoods he knows and loves.
