Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA.
I have known Carol Thomson for over 30 years, as a former neighbor and real estate professional. She is a person of complete integrity and extensive experience in San Gabriel Valley real estate, which is why i chose her to help me find a house for my daughter. She explained the market environment to us and understood our preferences and constraints. Carol is personable and low key in her manner, which makes her comfortable to work with and not under pressure. The process went surprisingly quickly, as Carol spotted a new listing which required a quick turnaround and where there were multiple offers. In the end, we got a very suitable house in our preferred neighborhood, in part thanks to Carol's advocacy on our behalf, as well as being qualified buyers. Carol's assistant Elizabeth at Coldwell Banker was also very responsive and timely with document signing, etc. I highly recommend Carol Thomson.
Carol is absolutely expert in finding a home that matched my difficult desires. We hit some snags with the seller and Carol helped me navigate them, resulting in a successful move. Years later, when I planned a remodel, she volunteered her expertise on what to changes I might like while still living there, as well as what options will help re-sale value.
I recommend Carol to everyone I know who is buying or selling a house.
Carol was our agent 30+ years ago when we purchased this house. When we decided to move we called Carol. We trust her and she didn't let us down Carol worked with us to sell our home in the difficult days of real estate in 2011. We had an older home in a good neighborhood and the market was unpredictable and frustrating. Carol never lost interest in our property and she was always available, knowledgable and optimistic. She knows the business, has a great sense of style to help with preparing and staging your property and has very good ideas about how to keep your property in the public eye. At the end of the day we sold our house for the price we wanted and we are pleased with the outcome.
Carol helped my husband and I buy our first home in Pasadena over 20 years ago. We were so happy with her knowledge and service. When we decided to sell and move to a different city we called her right away. Not only did she sell our home, she found exactly what we were looking for at a great price. She goes above and beyond for her clients. I highly recommend Carol. We couldn't have been happier with her service!
I have had the pleasure of working with Carol Thomson over the years. In doing so, I have met many real estate professionals with immeasurable talents. Carol Thomson not only qualifies for this unique distinction, but also exceeds expectation. Her vast experience and endless wisdom on how to effectively sell a property is unsurpassed and truly sets Mrs. Thomson apart.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Ontario, CA.
We met Carol many years ago when we were looking to sell some homes and found her knowledge and suggestions very helpful and profitable. Likewise, when we were looking to buy a home she was the first person we called. Throughout the years of selling and buying homes, she is the one person to go to who gets us the best deals. She understands our desires and works 24/7 to find a best fit for us. She has a wealth of information and keen knowledge of rules, policies, laws, etc and ensures our protection. We highly recommend her services to individuals, family, or acquaintances looking to buy or sell. She's a gem!!!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2010 for approximately $500K in North Arroyo, Pasadena, CA.
Carol was amazing when I decided to move back to Pasadena. We worked together virtually for a couple of weeks (I was living out of the area) and she had the homes I wanted to see all lined up on a day when I could fly down. The process was smooth and easy. Carol was always available by phone or e-mail and even came by to let a contractor in for me on more than one occassion while I was still up north - this was well after my home had closed. I will definitely be using Carol again, and I never hesitate to refer her to friends and colleagues!
