Testimonials

“Every call I made to her office was returned.” -- Oct 2014

“In the process of selling my Mother’s home, after her passing in early March of this year, I was fortunate to be introduced to Carol Gilles a real estate sales lady, who was very knowledgeable in the area. We agreed on a price, and she went to work. During the sale of the house, she not only was my agent, but I considered her my friend. Every call I made to her office was returned, and all my questions answered professionally, and thoroughly. Getting rid of a lifetime of memories, pictures, furniture, etc., isn’t easy, Carol made it much easier for me. I’m sorry I don’t have another house to sell. Carol would be my choice. Thank you, Carol, for your patience, and understanding, it was a pleasure doing business with you.”

“Thanks so much for your expertise in helping us close our short sale of our property in Torrance last week. You were constantly in touch with our buyers agent and B of A during the time it took to obtain the banks approval and final closing of our sale. Without this constant attention on your part the process would have been much more difficult than it turned out to be. Your knowledge of the banks Equator online short sale system made the process much easier for all of us. Thanks again for all your help.
