I appreciate the fabulous job Carla did selling my deceased father's house. Since Carla also sold my house previously, I felt comfortable with Carla's recommendations and I trusted her totally. This house, like mine, was sold as is, so other than the upkeep of the pool, I didn't have to put money in to make a sale.

Carla helped us get our asking price in just a few months. She had great recommendations for contractors and made sure they delivered as promised.

Carla was my life saver. I was in the middle of doing a 1031 exchange and was having many problems with my then realtor, concerning time constraints and lack of communication. Since these are very important in this type of real estate transaction, I found myself searching for another realtor. Thank goodness Carla was recommended to me. She stepped in and stepped up to the task. She paid close attention to detail, got things done in a timely manner and always kept me informed of where we were in the process. With Carla's help, we got everything closed according to schedule and my exchange was a success. I would highly recommend Carla and would use her as my realtor again.

We were so happy to have chosen Carla Carlson as our realtor!
We live in Arizona and sold property in Cameron Park. The property
needed a lot of work done to it before we could list it and she handled all
of it for us. The property looked great after she was through and we had
two offers after just two days. We would recommend her to anyone.

Carla is an outstanding agent! Her knowledge, experience, intuition and perseverance sets her apart from every agent we have seen. Our agent prior to Carla told us that he was a top performer, "good at what he does." Turns out, he was all talk as his performance was woefully inept. Carla, on the other hand, is all action, all performance at the highest levels. She adapted her strategy to meet our needs and fulfilled our expectations wonderfully. She is a good listener, an honest person and amazingly positive. She will uplift you when necessary. She assisted us through every dilemma with a calmness that was reassuring. She knows her stuff and will work for you and with you. Carla has earned our highest recommendation. She is truly a remarkable agent and has become a friend. We did not know Carla before this adventure but feel privileged to have had her as our agent.

Carla Carlson, as usual, did an outstanding job helping us to sell our home. We have used her before and are just as pleased with her expertise as we were before. She makes what can be a trying time so much easier. She guided us smoothly through unusual circumstances with our buyer, and had the necessary contractor connections which enabled us to take care of contingencies in a timely manner.
Carla is an expert in California Real Estate Law.

I would recommend Carla to list my house again. She is professional keeps on top everything and we never had to worry if things were being taken care of. Our house was unusual due to the diversity of homes in our area. Carla did not compromise the value of our home just to make a sale. Carla made the closing process easy and made sure all aspects of the details were taken care of.

Carla Carlson,

Played a very instrumental role in helping our family find and purchase our dream home. With Carla's expertise and guidance we were able to win the bid at a bankruptcy court, and put the necessary pieces in place to qualify for our home loan. We couldn't have done it without her.

We would definetly recommend her to our family members and friends!!

Carla was the third realtor which we used to sell our home in strange times. Her letter to us initially intrigued me to look into her success rate as a local realtor. Her creative suggestions, different marketing efforts, and persistence resulted in the sale of our home shortly thereafter. Throughout this time, she was on top of all aspects of the sale. She even walked us through the "electronic" methods used in the sale of home with ease. Both of us highly recommend Carla for her real estate professionalism.

Carla is the consummate pro. If you want a guarantee that your agent is smarter than their agent, get her before they do. And above all else, she is incredibly honest and has all the integrity in the world.

Carla is experienced, knowledgeable and thorough and kept us apprised at all times. She has a warmth and sense of humor that elicits trust. She handled everything including arranging for repairs and the like. I am happy to recommend her to you.

Carla is a high energy go-getter from start to finish. Our house sold in 17 days, and she found us a house to buy the next day! Both homes closed concurrently in 30 days. Carla kept us informed and answered even the most mundane questions every step of the way. If you want excellent marketing skills, non-stop action and results, Carla is the one!

I was very happy with my real estate agent, Carla Carlson. She was both professional and personal. Besides being experienced in the real estate field, I especially liked the way she handled situations that were unique to me. Carla was always looking out for my best interest. She never failed to return my phone calls, responding to my concerns and explaining whatever questions I had. In short, I would not hesitate to recommend Carla Carlson to anyone looking for a very qualified real estate agent.

Carla has been our "go to" realtor since 2010. This fall we contacted Carla again to find us the "perfect" home. It did not take her long before that happened and cheerfully we are moving in as I write. Carla is the agent that embodies everything one needs and wants when dealing with the real estate. Carla has a wonderful energy, tenacity, impeccable taste and design ideas, a vast knowledge of real estate the market, including regulations and rules. She is always patient and never pushes. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Carla as your realtor.

Carla brings a completely unique combination of skills to real estate. She not only speaks with a finely tuned accounting knowledge, but also with a business savvy that only comes from leadership positions in successful organizations. Most importantly, her tenacity and results orientation are palpable, with every interaction. She is unforgettable talent to have on your side of business. Specifically, she has helped me save thousands of dollars and navigate some very difficult financial situations in real estate.

Carla is the consummate professional, possessing a vast array of knowledge in the real estate industry. She sold my home in record time in a down market, making the process smooth and satisfying. I would not hesitate to recommend Carla to anyone contemplating buying or selling a property.”

Carla’s conscientious work to help us get through the sale of our home, and then purchase of another, was a difficult undertaking to make all the parts come together smoothly. We feel that Carla, and her team, were the major reason that it was all accomplished.

Carla is a dynamic realtor combined with a wealth of knowledge. She will anticipate your needs before you even know what they are. Carla is one of the best in her field. We couldn't have been more pleased.
