BEST experience

Carla was recommended to me by a neighbor and it was the BEST experience I have ever had with a relator! Carla is not only personable, organized, task orientated, timely and efficient (all qualities every real estate agent should have), she is also empathetic, compassionate and aware of the space clients may need to make big decisions. She instinctively knew the feelings I had about my property and treated every discussion about change with respect and care. I can’t imagine a better partner in this venture (if only I had more houses to sell)!!

The Home of our Dreams

Carla was referred by a friend of mine who lived in Benicia. After chatting on the phone awhile, Carla recommended we look for a home in the Glen Cove neighborhood. We found the home of our dreams RIGHT BEFORE hitting the market thanks to Carla’s vast network of realtor connections.
My husband & I could have been happier with Carla’s service! The purchase of home was very smooth and Carla told us what to anticipate every step of the way. Even now that we are settled in for a few months, Carla continues to be available for resources to local contractors and home decorating vendors. She is a “one stop shop” for finding and creating your next home!

Amazing Partner

Carla was an amazing partner in finding a property for my mom. She went above and beyond in showing me the market and once we found the right place she was efficient with the process. I’ll be using her for any future real estate transactions.

Professional and Personal

Carla was my selling agent, and just WOW! Professional and personal, she was truly amazing. I’ve bought and sold a dozen homes in the last few years, and Carla is the best agent I’ve worked with. We had multiple offers and went over asking and Carla made the process smooth and enjoyable. She helped us do minor fix-ups, was always thinking ahead ( so we never went off track), she always kept us in the loop and served as the perfect strategic and design partner~ can’t say enough good things about her!

Incredible Realtor

Carla is an incredible realtor. She went above and beyond and knows her stuff in and out. She is professional and also a lot of fun to work with. She made the whole process of buying a house fun, easy and pain free. Sincerely, Tracy Kaae

Highly Recommend

My wife and I were somewhat apprehensive about the entire home search and buying process as we had lived in our prior home for 32 years. Additionally we had the complication of still having residence in Wisconsin, working through this process while commuting back and forth. From the very beginning our anxiety eased tremendously as Carla took us step by step through the entire process. She worked hard to help us find our new dream home and took care of running down all of the details making the process extremely painless for my wife and I. I highly recommend Carla as she will do whatever it takes to help her customers find the right home and make the process as painless as it can be.
