Cari is great! She's an expert on Sacramento real estate, and West Sac in particular. I work in the real estate field and I see ALL kinds of agents; I see a staggering variability of competence. Cari is personable and professional, and also really, REALLY knows her stuff! She's responsive-- She'll get back to you right away with answers to any questions you have. She's organized with her time and can coordinate and accommodate multiple schedules.<br/><br/>This was my first home-buying experience, and I can honestly say it was EASY. I really can't believe I own a house. Right now. <br/><br/>Cari also knows high-end contractors as well as contractors for the budget-minded. She knows tricks and shortcuts to dealing with contractors, lenders, title companies, insurance companies-- probably everyone.<br/><br/>I think Cari is smart enough and organized enough that she could run a whole team of agents under her, but prefers to be closer to clients. Lucky for us!

Joe, Thank you for the great review. It means a lot coming from someone who is in the business. You've already improved the value of your new home. I can't wait to see the finished product!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in West Sacramento, CA.
We worked with Cari to purchase our first home in West Sacramento. Cari was very knowledgeable and patient while guiding us through our search. She was always encouraging and helped us to keep focused on what we really wanted without settling. We chose to pursue a short sale purchase, and Cari made the entire process as simple and stress free as possible, making sure to keep us updated every step of the way and always being available to answer our many questions. Cari is definitely an expert in West Sacramento real estate, knowing much about the different builders, floor plans, neighborhoods and was able to give us great advice. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in West Sacramento, CA.
We chose to work with Cari because she was recommended by a friend. It was the best decision we made because we ended up in our dream house! We were very particular buyers and were determined not to settle. She always said we would end up in the home we were supposed to and we truly believe that happened. During the process Cari answered the MANY questions we had and always made herself available to us. Even after we closed, Cari assisted us with the moving in process. Specifically, the day we moved in our water heater broke. Cari was the first person we called. After our home warranty told us they would not cover a replacement, Cari made numerous phone calls on our behalf and advised that we needed to provide our home inspection report. We took her advice and as a result our home warranty covered the water heater. Through it all, we trusted Cari. She's professional, knowledgable and adversarial. She knows the ins and outs and always gives an honest opinion.

Michelle, I loved helping your family get the perfect home. The holidays must be particularly sweet this year. Thank you for the review and your trust in the process. Have a great New Year!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Curtis Park, Sacramento, CA.
I don't know if I would have gotten through the sale of my home without Cari. Her professionalism and real estate expertise helped close what may be one of the messiest real estate transactions either of us will ever be involved in. She kept me informed every step of the way, provided advice without being pushy, and educated both myself, the buyer, and the realtor when negotiations got complex. I am thankful to have had her on my side through both the purchase and sale of my home. Thanks, Cari!

Emily, thank you for being patient with the process. It's difficult with a buyer's agent like the one on this transaction, but we made it out alive! Let's get together next time you are in town and celebrate properly! Thanks for the great review, my friend.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in South Land Park, Sacramento, CA.
Cari helped me and my fiancé buy a house August of 2013 and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. This is the fifth house I have purchased and never have I had a smoother, more comfortable and stress free purchase. Buying a house can always be stressful, but Cari smoothed out all those wrinkles.
She took the time to sit with us and help us figure out what we were looking for in a home. Her knowledge of the local real estate market is impressive to say the least. She was organized and responsive and expertly guided us to our dream home.
She negotiated masterfully and never missed a single detail. Her knowledge and experience are everything you want in a real estate agent. She was patient and kind; taking the time to explain the process to us, answer all of our questions expertly and allay any of our concerns.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home in the Sacramento area. She is the agent you want by your side.

John and Leah, thank you for the great review. It was my pleasure helping you find the right home to start a family in. :) So happy to call you guys good friends!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Gateway West, Sacramento, CA.
Cari was great. It was a pleasure working with her. Buying a primary home is such a big deal and it is such a headache. But Cari helped me think through on several concerns that I had. She did not rush me into just buying any home. She gave great recommendations based on my needs. She was very responsive and always "there" when I needed her. She was great at negotiating. I can't say enough great things about Cari. I would recommend Cari to anyone who needs help purchasing a home.

It was so fun working together, Dung! You are so decisive and knew exactly what you were looking for. Enjoy your investment for many years to come!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in West Sacramento, CA.
This was my first home buying experience, and Cari made the entire process smooth, understandable and stress free. Cari is extremely knowledgeable and connected in the West Sacramento and Sacramento area, and was able to recommend mortgage lenders, inspectors and contractors for my home purchase. Cari's greatest strengths are her ability to listen to your wants and needs (not just "hear" you talk), and her negotiating skills. She truly understands what is important to you and your family, and makes it happen. She is honest, and will guide you to make the most informed decision on what type of home is best for your lifestyle. As a first time buyer, I needed a LOT of guidance, patience and process explanations, and Cari was right there every step of the way, answering my calls and emails immediately, explaining terminology and preparing me for what happens next. Cari takes her profession very seriously and is a great example of what a real estate agent should be. I will definitely recommend her and use her again in the future.
