Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Hayward, CA.
I called Carolyn quite panicked after I had received a 30-day notice to leave my rental home. We looked at 10 houses the first week, found the best one the next Tuesday, submitted an offer on Wednesday, and it was accepted on Thursday. As a first time home buyer, I had no clue how much time, energy, expertise and paperwork goes into buying a home. The inspections revealed work was needed and most of the repairs were made relatively easily. However, we discovered the County Building Inspector had signed off on incomplete termite work. Another agent might have let that go, but not Carolyn. She marched down to the Building Inspector’s office, showed photos of the incomplete work, had the repairs done by a competent termite company, and the Supervising Building Inspector came out to finalize the report. Above and beyond? Absolutely! I was in my home six weeks after my first phone call. Our home is perfect for me and my family--the best size, the best condition and the best location--and we are extremely happy living here.

When Carolyn sells a home, she expects it to be up to all standards, as if she’s buying it for herself, and she doesn’t stop until it’s done correctly. I was so pleased with my experience, when my nephew and his new wife were looking for a home, I referred them to Carolyn immediately. She found them a lovely home and they are, like me, happy first time home buyers. I recommend Carolyn wholeheartedly to anyone looking to buy a home.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Harder-Tennyson, Hayward, CA 94544
Poor follow-up to my request to talk. Obviously, my business was not worth her time and she made that fairly clear to me by her lack of communication and care.

Due to the nature of this persons's request, I asked that legal counsel be obtained before our meeting. That wasn't done and my preliminary work determined that the outcome wouldn't be in either of our best interests. This information was conveyed. When unfortunate things happen to one, it's always easier to blame someone else for their misfortune.

Bought a Other home in 2012 in Santa Clara, Hayward, CA.
Carolyn proves to be an amazing talented Broker. My husband and I just purchased a home, after a year of trial and error. Carolyn's expertise and patience lent to an amazing first home purchase! We could not have had a better broker!!! We finally found our dream first place and couldn't be happier! If you are a first time home buyer, Carolyn is the right fit! She takes the time to explain each of the MANY steps of the process, as well as, follows through in communication day or night, week day or weekend. She also does her research and ensures to dot every 'i' and cross every 't'. She is truely great!!!

Bought a home in 2011.
Carolyn is extremely knowledgable with 30 years of real estate experience, here in the Bay Area! She has an extensive network of contacts, and can provide excellent experitise in the industry. Carolyn has been my Buyers Agent for over the last 6 months. She has been extremely attentive to all my inquires and concerns regarding several properties I have shown interest in, through emails, meetings, and phone calls. This is my first home buying experience, and Carolyn has made each stage of the process a pleasure!
