With a top-notch work ethic and the ability to infuse a sense of humor when needed, Kristen von Bargen is smart, pro-active, and genuine.
This top producing real estate agent achieves much more than assisting clients buy and sell houses. She has a knack for finding buyers the right home in the right neighborhood for them, and helps position sellers to ensure them the highest possible return.
Growing up in Carmel and traveling extensively during her years as travel consultant cemented Kristen’s love for beautiful places and diverse lifestyles. She has called the Bay Area home for over 30 years because it has it all: richly diverse communities, fabulous food, cultural events, a wonderful climate and natural beauty. Kristen has a particular appreciation for our unique East Bay neighborhoods.
A tireless advocate for her clients, Kristen attributes her keen ability to navigate the fast, ever-changing world of real estate to her experience learning to successfully maneuver through many different countries and environments. Part of adapting to the changing market is learning how to think on your feet and outside of the box. The same creative, fearless spirit that led her abroad guides her genuine dedication to facilitating the best outcome for her clients.
“Highland Partners really is a team. When you get one, you’ve got the rest behind you–truly a unique and fantastic atmosphere in which to work.” This must explain why Highland Partners was voted Best Real Estate Agency in the East Bay!
Kristen is the best! She knows the Montclair market better than anyone and is a pleasure to work with and constantly communicates with you. She sold our house in 4 days.

We had a great experience with Kristen – she is terrific. She really knows the area and is very easy to work with. Five stars, without question.

Kristen helped me realize my dream. We worked together to make an offer on the home my son and I knew was ours the moment we crossed the threshold. She made the whole overwhelming experience easy to navigate. She advised me on what our offer should be and when to flex. She was well connected and knew how to manage every aspect of this super fast-paced negotiation. Kristen was an incredible partner through every step of the process and you would be very fortunate to have her on your team. She is an absolute gem and has become a true friend!
