Since 2002, we have helped thousands of families just like yours connect with Christian real estate agents throughout the country.


About Us

The Christian Real Estate Network was formed as a service to help people connect with a real estate agent they can trust during one of the most stressful events in life: buying or selling a home. Since that time, we have been able to help thousands of people realize their dreams of home ownership, help people that are relocating & assist during the stressful home selling process. Our heart is to serve people by referring them to a like minded Christian agent that places a high value on integrity, Biblical values & excellent customer service.

Currently our database of agents is over 4,000 strong and growing every day. If you need to buy or sell anywhere around the country, chances are we have a contact in your area. This is a completely free service, and will never cost you a penny.


About the Founders


The Network was founded by a father and son team (Bart & Justin Smith) that saw the need in the Christian community and responded to the calling by reaching out to an initial group of agents that shared a similar passion.  

Bart is a full time licensed Broker based in Villa Park, CA. He is active in his Church (Salt Works, Orange) and enjoys fly fishing, racquetball, golf, and spending time with his 7 grandchildren. Bart has been active in real estate for nearly 50 years and has an excellent reputation in Orange County for his local industry knowledge, integrity, and godly character. 

Justin lives in southern Colorado with his wife and 5 kids. He currently runs the day-to-day CREN operations while working in full time ministry at the Bridge Youth Center started by he and his wife. He loves fly fishing, spending time with his family, and goofing off with the kids at the youth center. 

I loved the experience I had with my real estate agent. Her professionalism, warmth and strong Christian faith were beyond compare. She walked through my move and purchase every step of the way and I have developed a life long friendship with her and her family. I could not be happier!!
