Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $925K in Northwest Hillsdale, San Mateo, CA.
My wife and I met Carroll when we were moving to the Bay Area and looking for a place to rent. We called Coldwell Banker and Carroll happened to be the person who picked up. She spent a good amount of time helping us get a lay of the land and even showed us some houses for rent--even though there was absolutely no financial incentive for her to do so. Four years later, she and Dennis helped us buy our first house (well below listing, no less), a wonderful home in San Mateo. She and Dennis helped us through the process with extreme ease, allaying the fears we had as first-time buyers. Once we were in, they helped us pick paint colors, gave us remodeling ideas, anything we asked about. Seven years later, we decided to move to San Carlos. Carroll and Dennis helped us quickly buy a beautiful home--below listing and on contingency. Then they sold our San Mateo home in 2 or 3 days (before the first scheduled open house!), above listing.

Carroll and Dennis are extremely knowledgeable and efficient. But more than that, they are friendly and caring. They take great pride in their work and in their relationships. I've recommended them to two of my friends, both of whom bought houses with Team LaVrar. I highly recommend them.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 in San Carlos, CA.
Within a five year period, I worked with the LaVrar Team on both a property purchase and a sale. Their long and respected history in the Bay Area RE industry served me well in both cases, allowing me to make solid decisions based on their strong knowledge and experience that secured the very best outcomes for me. The purchase was negotiated long distance, without my ever having seen the property. Carroll LaVrar was relentless in making certain I was fully informed and spent hours (across a time zone change) to keep me constantly in the loop. Her critical eye, amazing negotiation skills amid multiple offers, strong contract intelligence, and her placing client above commission are, most likely, incomparable in the industry. For the sale of my property, I was fortunate enough to work with both Carroll and Dennis LaVrar. Their extraordinary attention to my sale in the midst of many other properties they were representing quickly brought me a buyer. I highly recommend Carroll and Dennis, and feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $875K in Belmont, CA.
We worked with Carroll when we bought and then sold our first home and bought our second home. She made the process as painless as possible despite crazy market conditions and difficult potential buyers, etc. We loved working with Carroll and will certainly work with Carroll and Dennis again if we decide to move on!

Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $700K in San Carlos, CA.
We called Carroll one afternoon about a house we'd come across, saw it that afternoon, toured it before dinner, and had an accepted offer (below the asking price!) by evening. Hard to beat that kind of service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Redwood City, CA.
In the spring of 2010 I met the LaVrar team while house hunting for a property in the San Carlos / Belmont area and ultimately purhased a beautiful home in Redwood City in late fall of that year with their guidance. We were shown many beautiful propeties by the team. The LaVrar's warmth, professionalism, organizational skills, attention to details, expediency and knowledge of the local market are simply world class. Having purchasd a couple of homes on the east coast and dealt with many real estate professionals, the LaVrars are second to none. Their handling of the transaction was flawless especially taking into acct I travelled back and forth to the east coast and internationally, and the process went extremely smoothly.

Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $650K in Los Altos, CA.
Carroll and Dennis LaVrar have handled 2 home sales and 2 home purchases for me in the past 6 years, and have been highly proficient and professional every step of the way. They know the market inside and out, have a thorough understanding of the process, and can even help you stage your home. I had one particularly difficult woman I was dealing with ~ was selling her home without the aid of a professional R.E. agent and was literally thrown out of the title company we were using ~ and Carroll's cool head and hand saved the day and the purchase. Go Team LaVrar!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.275M in San Carlos, CA.
Carroll and Dennis were my buying agents this past summer, and they were first rate. They took the time to understand my requirements, and put in the legwork to find a great house. When we submitted an offer their expertise was impressive and essential to successfully buying the house in this competitive market.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $450K in San Carlos, CA.
My family really liked working with Carol & Dennis. We were touring homes and meeting with my toddler in tow and I found them to be very welcoming of him. Carol & Dennis know all the ins & outs of our community and answered all of our questions promptly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Belmont, CA.
We were buying our first home, and as you can imagine, nervous about the process and didn't know much on how the process of buying a home worked. We looked at many homes and each time Carroll and Dennis were more than willing to drive us around. I must have asked more questions that anyone could keep track of, by email and phone, and Carroll always responded, usually within an hour. She called me everytime there was some action that I had to take i.e. get paperwork in to the lender or send our money to the escrow company. Carroll even sat with us as we signed our loan docs to make sure we understood everything we signed. In addition, the agent selling our home was not the most responsive and Carroll called her every day to get her committment to sell the home to us and work with the bank (home was a foreclosure). Once we closed on the house, Dennis took the time to show us how certain things worked. I felt a comfort with the two that I have never felt with someone helping me with a purchase or account. I knew that they had our best interest in heart all along. I will use them again in the future and think they would make anyone else extremely happy!
