Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in San Rafael, CA.
We hired Carole Courtney to help us sell our home we had lived in for 47 years about 7
months ago. She was patient, understanding, and spot on with advice. She knew what to do to make our home attractive to today's buyers. The house sold one week after open house for the agreed on price. She was and is great!
Carol found a buyer for my Pacheco Valle condominium in less than two weeks in a slow market. She made all the right moves, provided me with experienced counsel at every stage of the process, and helped me deal with a difficult buyer gracefully and professionally.
If you are buying or selling a home in Marin County, you will be delighted with the rare blend of expertise and personal attention that Carol provides. I could not possible be more pleased.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Tiburon, CA.
We first met Carol at an Open House. She was representing the sellers and hosting that open house. We were with another Realtor at the time who we had been working with for just over 6 months.
We were instantly impressed by Carol's professionalism. Her intuitive listening and engaging questions established a certain trust. After the open house we made an offer. We were one of two offers that came in, and sadly we weren't the winning offer.
After 7 failed offers, this made the 8th, and yet there was something we saw in Carol that made us believe she was the right Realtor to move to in representing our needs moving forward. We cut ties with our previous representation quickly, and with frustration, and within 7 days of beginning work with Carol, and after seeing a very astute and refined list of properties that met our criteria we were in escrow on the home we ultimately bought.
Carol's command of the market, long standing and tightly held relationships with other real estate providers and servicers - from inspectors, to loan officers, to her colleagues in sales, the commanding respect she's earned amongst her colleagues, and her constantly transparent and intimate guidance through the escrow experience, had us close on time, in 30 days, with exactly 0 issues.
Its now been about 9 months. With the market having turned we've already seen a significant return on our investment. We check in with Carol regularly to see what the market is doing. And we've started chatting about investing in rental properties, and potentially a move up home in the near future. And those deals will all land squarely on Carol's desk.
If you're looking for someone to represent you as a seller, as a buyer - and really as both, you would be wise to put your path in Carol's hands.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Novato, CA.
I was immediately impressed with Carol's knowledge and communication style. Over the months it took for our purchase of a short sale property to close, Carol continued to excel. She kept us promptly informed of all aspects of our deal. Quite frankly, we wouldn't have closed on the perfect condo had it not been for Carol's relentless pursuit of keeping the deal alive. She is much more than a Realtor®, I consider her to be a Real Estate Angel.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.125M in Novato, CA.
We recently purchased a home in Marin and both my husband and I were extremely impressed with the professionalism and level of service provided by Carol Courtney. She is a wealth of knowledge in the Bay Area real estate market and we feel lucky to have worked with her.
