Testimonials

Thank you once again for making the selling and buying process so seamless. Your efforts are always over and above and they are so appreciated! Your marketing of my home and your negotiating skills definitely influenced the price that I received.  My investment property is just what I was looking for too!

Carol did such a great job hand holding me throughout the process. It was especially important since I am Canadian and unfamiliar with how real estate is bought and sold in California. I totally understand why my daughter recommended me to Carol.

Carol was awesome helping me buy my first townhome!  I was really happy my friend recommended her.

Carol was extremely professional throughout the sale of my home. I was nervous because it was the first time I was doing it alone and she made sure I felt informed and answered all of my questions. Plus, we got the highest price in the neighborhood!

                                                                   Debbie Paletta

 

Carol listed our home, staged it beautifully, and then succeeded in selling it for the highest price per square foot in the area! The entire transaction went smoothly and Carol was a great communicator. She answered our questions before we even knew we were going to want to know the answers. It was a pleasure!

My husband and I were looking for an investment home that my son could live in near the coast. Carol sent us everything that came on the market in such a timely matter. She ended up finding an approved short sale that fell out of escrow.  Because of how on top of it she was, we got it! It was an incredible deal and my son loves it!  We have used many agents in the past. Carol is now the only Realtor we would use!

My husband and I had used Carol’s services for listing our mom’s home in the past. This time, we were in the market for an investment property. Carol was on the ball and made sure she was available to show us every home that came on the market that fit our requirements as soon as it was listed. The market was so frustrating with multiple offers and Carol was able to find us a great short sale! We got a great deal and are so pleased with all that she, once again, did to help us!

Even though I had a limited budget, Carol was truly worked hard to find the home that would fit my needs and my budget. She was a pleasure to work with and her knowledge and attention to detail was admirable. I highly recommend her!

My husband and I needed to find an investment property fast for a 1031 Exchange. We needed an agent who could dedicate the time, energy, and research to get the job done and we found the perfect agent that fit all of our criteria!  Carol is a workhorse!  She was thorough with her analysis of properties available and vigilant about communication. She is a good listener and pleasant to work with.  All of her referrals and services were excellent.  She is a true professional and we are grateful that she was available to help us!

My dad passed away suddenly and I was left with the overwhelming task of selling his home in The Chateau, which comes with $1929/mo homeowner fees. So many of the heirs of these condos were dumping them for so much less than their value, because they didn’t want or couldn’t pay the fees. I was about to do the same thing. I was going to give the listing to an “expert” of The Chateau. When Carol heard my remarks, she said let’s try and get market value first.  Following her advice, I did some painting & new carpet and then with her staging, it literally transformed the condo into a home! Through her marketing and contacts, it sold for $60,000 more than I was initially going to list it for and in a short period of time. Plus, her compassion and support every step of the way was incredible! Dad would be so pleased!

We just purchased our first home and we couldn’t have asked for a better agent!  Carol was extremely patient with all of our questions and did a great job of explaining each step along the way.  She always answered her phone or got back to us in a timely manner and we felt confident that she was looking out for our best interests. I can’t wait to refer her to anyone looking for a Realtor.

As a first time homebuyer, I was very anxious. I also had a limited budget, but Carol took the time and together we found a wonderful condo!  She answered all of my questions and often before I even had time to think to ask. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional agent! Love my place!

I work in the property management business and have met many, many agents over the years, but knew that when it was time to buy our home, Carol Lageder, was our first choice. She is exceptional and we highly recommend her and I will continue referring clients to her!

My son & I were relocating from the Midwest. I had to sell my house, get a job, and find a new home in a very short period of time. Carol was right on it. She was like having an extra pair of eyes. She was Johnny on the spot too. The entire experience was pretty stress free. I knew she always had my back.

I trust her completely. She truly is a professional.

Carol was terrific in getting through all of the hurdles that short sales involve.  Her determination and follow up made it possible for us to get our dream home for our family before the twins were born.  We felt at ease knowing she was in charge and she anticipated our questions and had the answers readily available or found someone who did. We love our house and loved working with Carol.  We will definitely call her when we decide to move up!

Carol did an outstanding job for us during the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home!  Not only did her negotiating skills get us top dollar for the home we were selling, she was able to negotiate a huge price reduction with the sellers of our new home when it didn’t appraise.  Her attention to detail and accessibility alleviated so many of our concerns immediately, even while visiting her daughter in Australia!  Job well done. We love to refer Carol because she doesn’t disappoint.

We have used Carol’s services on our most recent short sale purchase which she handled with the utmost professionalism.  Her attention to detail and continual communication on all sides facilitated the successful approval with the bank and the successful close of escrow.  She also just sold our investment property and with her hard work and promotion of our home, and her great negotiation skills, she succeeded in getting us the most for our home that we possibly could in this buyer’s market.  We have subsequently referred her to our neighbors and friends and feel confident that they will be as satisfied with her service and results.

We love Carol!  We have used her for 2 purchases and 2 sales.  She makes it a pleasure.  Her knowledge keeps us at ease.  Her constant communication is invaluable.  We love working with such a professional!

Thank you so much for being such an outstanding real estate agent.  We were very pleased with your services.  You were on top of everything at all times.  You’re a pleasure to do business with.  You are one of the best realtors I’ve ever dealt with- always attentive and constantly keeping in touch.

                                                                    Dick and Claire Blezard

 

Carol has made this stressful process a pleasure.  She constantly keeps us informed throughout the entire process.  She anticipates any possible glitches and has had solutions for all of them.  She is a great negotiator too!  We have used her for 2 purchases and 2 sales.  She has become like a family member.  We now live out of the area and will certainly miss her services, as well as her friendship.  We recommend her to all of our friends and business associates.

We got a fabulous home for an incredible price!  Carol listened to what we were looking for and sent us the new listings as soon as they hit the market.  As a result, we were able to purchase a wonderful home, in our price range that ended up with many disappointed buyers.  We beat them to it!  She has continued to keep in touch with us and we know if we need anything, Carol is happy to help.  We are so lucky to have met her and had the opportunity to work with her.

I ran into Carol at one of her open houses.  She actually heard what I said and started sending listings to me.  I wasn’t quite ready to purchase, but Carol stayed in touch with me and continued to send me listings for over a year!  When I was ready, I found exactly what I was looking for.  She was able to negotiate an incredible price and I am so thrilled with my new home.  She stills calls me to make sure everything is going well.  I recommend her all the time.

Carol’s thorough knowledge of the market and the area enabled her to price my property thoughtfully, and she was proactive and extremely helpful in preparing it for showing.  She devised a comprehensive and aggressive marketing strategy using a variety of media and updated me regularly at every stage, culminating in a fast sale at an excellent price.  Carol’s experience and can-do attitude took the headache out of what is potentially a very stressful process.  She was on the ball at every turn, reliable in following up on issues that arose along the way, and able to give sound advice from her years of experience.  Working with Carol was a pleasure and I highly recommend her.
