Christopher Alarab was born and raised in Berkeley, California and has lived in the greater Healdsburg area for 21 years. After leaving college, he became a builder and built his own home in Kensington, California in 1980. He continued to build homes and also started a video company in Berkeley. His family sold the video company in 1987 and Chris was looking for a change of pace when he went to work for Royal Motors in San Francisco from 1988-90. In 1991 his family remodeled their home in Kensington and sold it. They then moved up to the wonderful town of Healdsburg and built another home (1992-94) just 3 miles outside the City limits. In 1998 they sold the home and Chris went to work for Prestige Imports in Santa Rosa. They bought another home about 4 miles outside of town in 1998 and sold it in 2000. Finally they bought a home in the City of Healdsburg, where they had always wanted to be, and where he and his wife own and run Paula Christopher Hair Design. In 2002 Chris stopped working for Prestige Imports and traded stocks and commodities from 2002-2007. Chris says, "If you give me 20 minutes of your time I would like to show you the unique talents I have to offer and my exceptional desire to accomplish my client's goals."
