Paula Fiteni & Tamara Baltic started their careers in Real Estate in 2010, one in Vancouver and one in the Fraser Valley. The two were introduced by a mutual friend, and team name FITENI BALTIC was created. Two years later, they were very fortunate to find their missing link taking them to the next level of success. Enter, Ashley Chalmers, Buyers Specialist.
Below they share their stories, and history, before they become the all female powerhouse team, and top 1% of Realtors in the Fraser Valley.

Her real estate career began in the Cayman Islands in 2006, where she sold high end luxury homes. In 2009 she migrated back to Vancouver where she continued her career downtown working with local developers and builders. Paula specialized in investment properties, project development and pre-sale condos, building a solid foundation in the Vancouver real estate market. Pending the arrival of her daughter brought her back to her roots, in Langley, and in 2014, Paula and Tamara formed Fiteni Baltic Real Estate Group and never looked back.

MICHAELA CHRISTENSEN – Licensed Realtor
Michaela started in Real Estate in 2012, and attributes her success in the career she loves, simply, to always having her clients best interest at heart.

And the joy she receives seeing others happy, feeling connected and achieving their goals is what really pulled her toward this profession. Langley has been home since 2013 and as a Mother of two she’s so grateful for the sense of community her family has found here.
