Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.5M in Belmont, CA.
Caroline is the best! She is not only a great agent but a genuine and wonderful person. When my wife and I were considering the possibility of selling our house she met with us and went into detail of the pros and cons of our property. Once we decided to sell she was maestro at conducting the process. Caroline worked with us on the best plan to make our house as desirable as possible. Every little question we had she would take the time to clearly explain to us the answer. She was always easy to get in contact with and was always informative to talk to. Any time she had forms or information to present to us she was educated on every aspect of what was at hand and clearly explained what everything meant. Her knowledge of the housing market paid off as well. We received multiple offers well beyond the asking price and she made the process of closing painless.

To top thing off Caroline also assisted us with our new home purchase out of the area that she was not the agent on. We actually had a different real estate agent who unfortunately was not as seasoned as Caroline. From contract to the closing she helped us make sure we were in a great situation in what became a difficult transaction. In hind sight if Caroline had not given her assistance the deal may not have happened or we could have been put into a bad situation.

If you need a real estate agent your search is over! Caroline Dinsmore is awesome!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.325M in Foster City, CA.
Caroline Dinsmore utilizes strategic marketing expertise, with an in depth knowledge of the current real estate market and trends, making for a winning combination. When you hire Caroline to represent you as a seller's agent, you have the added benefit of a team of professionals whom she works in conjunction with, to advertise, promote, stage and sell your property for top dollar.

In addition to her high level of professionalism and excellent communication skills, she is very personable and warm. She possesses a reputation among the real estate community, of high integrity and honesty.

Her marketing plan is very extensive, targeting every possible vantage point, both locally and worldwide. We were kept abreast of all the activity on a daily basis.

Our house received a couple of pre-emptive offers with a total of 17 offers within 4 days of listing. The house sold for $307,000 over asking price! It doesn't get any better than that!

She did an outstanding job in selling our Foster City house. The entire process was smooth and seamless. We look forward to having Caroline represent us as a buyer's agent as we seek our future dream home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.425M in Redwood City, CA.
If you are considering buying or selling a house in Redwood Shores, or anywhere in the Peninsula, we would highly recommend Caroline. She helped us buy a house first and then sell our current house, both in Redwood Shores. Caroline gave us excellent advice and guidance all throughout the process of buying and selling. She has great negotiating skills and a great relationship with other realtors who operate in the area. It was a combination of all these attributes that helped us get our dream house in less than a month of active search in Redwood Shore’s white-hot sellers market. Caroline oversaw every step of the transaction and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible. When it came to selling our current house, we were very impressed with Caroline and her team’s thoughtful and detailed marketing plans and collateral (the website, the brochures and the pictures). She did not cut corners on anything and did a phenomenal job showcasing the house and working with other agents getting us an excellent price for our current house. Caroline is reachable at all times, has a wonderful attitude and a very easy-to-work-with personality. It truly was our pleasure working with Caroline and we would definitely work with her again!

Bought a home in 2014.
Caroline Dinsmore and Trevor Leung are a Winning Team

We closed on our new home just five weeks after meeting Caroline and Trevor. We found Caroline and Trevor based on Yelp! Reviews, and couldn't be more pleased.

Trevor took the lead on showing us properties and handling all the paperwork. Throughout the process they were both responsive, prompt, patient, and offered excellent guidance on our many questions. Caroline and Trevor accommodated our schedules and met with us on a Friday evening to explain what to expect and provided a guide on the home buying process. We were impressed by their warm, friendly, and honest approach. Trevor set up an autofeed in MLS and we were able to share ideas about what we liked and didn't like to help guide the search.

After our first day looking at properties with Trevor we decided to make an offer on a place we had visited during a previous open house. We thought it would be our first of many offers, but with Trevor and Caroline's guidance our first offer and subsequent counteroffer was accepted! Their guidance continued throughout the process to include arranging a free roof and electrical inspection, which resulted in learning the property needed a new roof. Caroline and Trevor then helped to negotiate a lower sale price, even though it was an 'as is' sale. The closing went smooth and Trevor was with us every step.

We are somewhat new to the Bay Area, and heard horror stories about buying a new home. Caroline and Trevor helped us buy a home with a dream view and made the process seem easy and straightforward. The bottom line is if you're buying a home you want Caroline and Trevor on your team!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Hayward Park, San Mateo, CA.
Caroline is one of the most professional, hardworking and honest people I've met. Right off the bat she provided us with a host of valuable information and equipped us with the knowledge we needed to purchase a home as first-time buyers. Since then, she has been on her toes and super responsive - everytime we sent an email we'd get a reply within a few hours. She would follow up with us and all other parties involved diligently with very clear communication. She helped us close the home we bought, and even thoughwe ran into a few issues (due to the selling agent's fault), Caroline handled it with utmost care and professionalism.

Not to mention, Caroline is a wonderful person. She's so pleasant and nice to talk to. If there was a 6-star rating, I'd have given her that.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 in Redwood City, CA.
We found Caroline through Yelp. She was amazing, and helped us immensely through our home buying process. Although we worked more closely with Trevor(who works with Caroline for kw and was equally wonderful) during the later stages of our home buying process, Caroline was always available to answer all the questions we shot at her. She also spent a lot of time initially educating us about the home buying process. Trevor and Caroline made a tedious process really smooth, and we would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs

Bought a home in 2013.
Caroline was instrumental in making our first time home buy a reality. My husband and I were mentally prepared for a painful and long drawn out process of finding a condo to our liking, and then actually presenting offers that would be taken seriously. Once we started working with Caroline, we quickly narrowed down the neighborhoods to target. Her knowledge of the local real estate market and her contacts in the industry proved to be invaluable. She managed to find us an off-the-market opportunity, that made all the difference in getting our offer accepted and guiding us through closing. All within just 2 months! She's awesome to work with and will make your home shopping experience very exciting.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.275M in Redwood City, CA.
My husband and I thought we had a perfect home in a perfect location until our little one started school. We quickly realized the pain of morning commute and the lack of a good school district. We barely had 2 waking hours in a day to spend as a family. Tired, exhausted and frustrated we decided to make the move to the peninsula area. That was when we were introduced to Caroline Dinsmore by one of our very good friends and well wishers. In her intro email our friend called Caroline a gem and in the next four months we worked with Caroline to purchase our home she proved to be just that!

Right from our first meeting to all the way until we signed our closing documents, Caroline went above and beyond our expectations. She's super sweet with clients and agents but she knows how to get tough when she needs to. She's very well connected and respected in the agent community which worked out in our advantage in the end. After losing out on a couple of homes we loved, in multiple bid situations (our offer was very competitive but we lost out to folks who brought in all cash), Caroline managed to get us our home through an off market deal by working with her connections in the agent community. And she negotiated the price to a level which saved us a ton of $$$ that could be used towards some upgrades we wanted. I am not exaggerating when I say we paid the least among the three homes that were sold in our community while we bought ours!! She made it seem like a walk on the beach for us and that too during a very competitive and hot real estate market. She is very detail oriented and very patient while explaining the whole real estate transaction process. Add her tech savviness to the mix and you have a perfect recipe for a stress free transaction. Once the deal was closed, came in the need to make the new house our home. We wanted to get some upgrades done such as floors and paints etc. Caroline introduced us to general contractors to get the work done and ensured that they understood our need for a timely finish of the project and to get it done in our budget!!! With Caroline, both you and your bank account are always in good hands!!!!! Thank you Caroline!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.525M in San Carlos, CA.
I found Caroline on Yelp, and after meeting her, my husband and I hired her over other realtors who'd been recommended to us because she seemed dedicated, trustworthy, a perfectionist and moreover, a warm and funny person. In fact, she's all that and more. We had a very short timeframe in which to pack up and sell our house, and Caroline facilitated the process at every step, working around our hectic schedules and those of our three children, down to bringing us packing boxes late at night. She arranged for and oversaw all the home inspections, took care of repairs that needed to be done, and best of all, sold our house in a pre-empt for more money than we expected to get! SHE IS THE BEST! She's also calm, pleasant, and fun to be around, as well as a shrewd negotiator. Thanks to her, what could have been a very stressful process was smooth sailing. This is the first public review I've left, because Caroline is THAT good. If you want a realtor who knows her stuff and will produce top results, call her!

Bought a home in 2012.
My partner and I were looking to buy our first home in late 2011 on the Peninsula. We had lost out on some houses in multiple offer situations with another realtor, and were feeling defeated. We turned to Caroline for help given her great reputation.

Caroline helped us navigate one of most difficult purchases I can imagine. The house we wanted was a short sale with a complicated financing history. Also, it was a fixer upper that required a special loan. In addition, the market was extremely competitive and multiple offers were the norm. On top of it all, Caroline had to handle all of the baggage that comes with first time home buyers.

First and foremost, Caroline has flawless integrity and a deep knowledge of real estate. She lead us through all of the complexities of our home purchase, from comps and price to the short sale process to the special loan. More importantly, however, she has patience and an ability to connect with people that is truly unique. We felt instantly comfortable with her, and I firmly believe that without her, the negotiations with the seller would not have been successful.

The end result of it all is that Caroline helped us get a fabulous home in a great area for an exceptional price during an extremely challenging time for buyers. We can't recommend Caroline strongly enough!
