Chris and Maria Jeantet

Realtors | Team Leaders

You may have noticed that many real estate agents take a transactional approach to sales – identifying clients, closing the deal, and then moving on to the next one. We choose not to work that way because we believe you deserve more from the professional you decide to work with. That is why we work by referral.

Since our primary source of new business is referrals from people who know and trust us, we don't have to spend precious time prospecting and promoting ourselves. We can dedicate our time to the activities that benefit you most, and always deliver truly exceptional service.

I met my wife and real estate partner Maria Jeantet in San Diego, Ca. We made the decision to move to Redding where I was born and raised. We have a young family and enjoy Sunday drives throughout the North State. I'm a CalPoly San Luis Obispo graduate and Maria earned her Bachelors degree from San Diego State University. In 2005 we decided to combine our work experience in Construction Management and the Hospitality Industry to build a successful Real Estate team which today ranks within the top 1% of Shasta County's MLS.

As your representative, Rick will walk you through the buying process, give you advice, schedule appointments, negotiate on your behalf and explain to you about neighborhoods and properties. Once you get to know Rick, you'll want to adopt him! Rick was born in Berkeley CA, but grew up in the Davis and Sacramento area.

Success Stories

Top Notch Group!​

The entire Jeantet team were wonderful! For an entire year they sent us updates on homes that we would be interested in for our future. They never were pushy. I believe in their hearts it's not about the sell but about the client buying the right home. This speaks volumes of the character of Chris and Maria. They have a way about them that even though they have not known you for long they make you feel like they have been your friends forever. Chris and Maria introduced us to one of their brokers who helped us find our DREAM home. Working with the Jeantet Team (Chris, Maria, Susan and Barbara) was the best choice for us. Would definitely use them again and would strongly recommend them to friends and family. Top Notch Group!
