“Carol, Thank you!” -- Oct 2014

“Carol, Thank you! We would like to thank you for helping us find our (beautiful) new home and selling our other property. We really love the old home. It was tough to leave our first home, wonderful neighborhood and friends. This is new beginning for our future. I have attached a copy of the note I will leave in the Huntington Lane home for the new owners. It gives some instruction on the Jacuzzi, heater, and alarm. I hope they enjoy the property as much as we have over the last 8 years.” ~ Maria & Rich Contino

Sold in One Day! -- Apr 2022

Carol sold my property the same day the property photos are on MLS. It took me eight years to decide to sale. During that eight years, Carol gave me good advise on how to upgrade my property and how to prepare for the sale. Right the listing was out, she brought in an offer. Before I realized it, it was sold. Definitely exceed my expectation. During the eight year, I could have select other realtor. I am glad I did not switch. Carol is the best! Ying Wei

Great second time experience with Carol -- Jul 2020
