My clients will tell you that I am dedicated to service and have a detailed knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market. Combining this with an unlimited patience for the process of selling or buying a home means my clients are destined for success. When I first meet a new seller or buyer I tell them: "I work when you don't. Call or email anytime."

Selling or buying a home may feel like a daunting task when first entering the San Francisco real estate market.  My goal is to make the process easier to understand while being honest about the challenges.

Working with Sellers: I am able to provide them with McGuire Real Estate's worldwide  reach and most sophisticated  internet marketing.  This enables me to expose my listings to the greatest number of buyers and ultimately sell the property for the highest price.

Working with Buyers: I am able to guide them as they focus on their needs and expectations.  Once this happens Buyers move on with my help to making an offer and negotiating the final price in buying a home or condo.

I joined McGuire Real Estate after working as a Special Assistant to Mayor Willie L. Brown Jr. as Deputy Director of the San Francisco Film Commission and liaison to San Francisco's neighborhoods. My in-depth knowledge of San Francisco government and neighborhoods is an additional asset for clients.

In my free time  I enjoy walking  around the San Francisco. Photography has been my lifelong passion and I have photographed over 1000 San Francisco doors. You can see these on my Facebook Business Page: San Francisco City Living. My photography is also on YouTube where I have slide shows of the cities' neighborhoods. Blogging and sharing my experiences and knowledge has also become a regular part of my business. I write a real estate column in the monthly newspaper The Marina Times.

As a Seller or Buyer of a home in San Francisco you can count on my experience, knowledge, dedication to service and patience to bring you success in your real estate transaction.

08/22/2014 - StephanieABC
Bought a home in 2014.

My husband and I have been to many open houses over the past couple of years and met numerous real estate agents. We met Carole at an open house in San Francisco in 2013, had a friendly chat with her, and signed up for her email newsletter. When we decided to seriously start looking for a house in 2014, Carole immediately came to our mind as a real estate agent we were interested in working with.

I contacted Carole about meeting in person, and she responded quickly and agreed to meet us that Saturday. Carole asked us to send her a list of must haves prior to our meeting which helped us focus on what we wanted and what we were willing to compromise on. When we met Carole on Saturday, she had already done a search using our parameters and generated a list of potential houses. She discussed the current state of the San Francisco market and what it would take to be competitive. Since I am a SF native and we had been to many open houses on our own, Carole felt we were already ahead of the game and expressed confidence in us. She advised us to check out open houses the next day and email her a summary of all the houses we would see.

The next day, my husband and I went to several open houses and immediately emailed Carole when we saw a house we were interested in. She contacted the seller’s agent right away to get the disclosure packages for us so we could consider whether to make an offer, and we received disclosure packages within an hour of asking for them.

We fell in love with one of the houses we saw but learned that offers were due the next day at noon! We immediately called Carole about putting in an offer, and she advised us on how to make the most competitive offer. After our call, Carole kicked into high gear. She emailed us back right away summarizing our conversation on the decisions we had made to include in the offer. She contacted our lender about contingencies and the number of days to close of escrow. She also advised us to draft a love letter to the sellers to include in our offer. After a flurry of activity on Monday morning, Carole had all the documents in place and our offer was ready to be submitted by 11am with an hour to spare.

Multiple offers were made on the house, and we stood out because the sellers loved our love letter. However, the sellers decided to counter offer to everyone. Carole advised us on how to respond to the counter offer and helped us remain calm during this anxious time. After the counter offers were received, Carole spoke to the seller’s agent to assure the agent that we would meet the contingencies in our offer. After this conversation, the sellers decided to accept our offer. My husband and I were elated and shocked that our very first offer ever was accepted!

Carole then guided us through the tedious process of closing escrow and communicated with our lender to ensure everything was proceeding according to our timeline. We had a very stressful closing process due to a couple of bumps in the road, but Carole was always available and very responsive during the entire process. When we finally closed escrow, Carole told us that our experience was the dream purchase and even she was amazed at how everything turned out so well for us.

My husband and I were very happy that Carole represented us in the purchase of our first home, and we would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and hard working real estate agent!!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $725K in Van Ness - Civic Center, San Francisco, CA.

Carole is very professional in all aspects. Her knowledge of the real estate field is excellent and she communicates extremely well (it seems that she is available 24/7!) . She is detail oriented and consistently follows through to completion. Carole surmounts problems well. I strongly recommend Carole to San Francisco real estate buyers and sellers. We recommended Carole to two other couples who were also very happy with her performance and help in buying homes in San Francisco.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $850K in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA.

Carole is an extremely energetic, hardworking and responsible real estate professional, who knows The City inside out, and is adaptive to the ever changing real estate market climate. We are most impressed with her willingness to take time helping clients become familiar with different neighborhoods throughout the city, and to become clear on their housing needs and priorities. We also appreciate her always having clients' long term best interests and satisfaction in mind, and only wants them settled in properties they'll be happy with in the long run.  More Less
