Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Baltimore, MD.
Carl is a fantastic agent. He is very patient, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and has good negotiation skills. We are first time home buyers and Carl provided us with excellent advice, he understood what we want and helped us to find it within a month. He also has been an excellent resource for referrals to services including home warranty, home inspectors, moving companies, and contractors. He was really helpful about the pre-closing stress as well as post-closing issues. We definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to buy a house in the area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Homeland, Baltimore, MD.
After a competitive and careful search process, we decided to work with Carl Herber to list and sell our home. Without a doubt we made the right decision. Carl brought years of industry experience to the table and provided us with continuous guidance as we navigated through the complex sale process. He did so in a professional manner and with the utmost expertise. If I'm ever in the market again to buy or sell, I will definitely rely on Carl's expertise to guide me through the process. I was extremely satisfied with the service he provided.
Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $300K in Westminster, MD.
I used carl to buy a house and i would use carl again, he will be patient and care for you. I recomend him. He returned all of my phone calls and never made me feel as though i asked a dumb question. Also, he maintained conversations with me until everything i wanted to discuss was discussed and i was satisfied. Carl seems to be a great person and good with real estate.
My first home was a condo which I later kept as a rental property. When I no longer wished to be a landlord, I decided to sell. Initially, I wanted to unload the unit quickly in AS IS condition, but Carl helped me see how much more I could get by painting, making a few repairs, and updating the carpet. He knew the market and he saw the potential. Carl had great working relationships with vendors and contractors of all kinds, and promptly arranged for a carpenter, electrician, painter, carpet installer, and someone to re-glaze the bathtub. He coordinated all the work, was responsive and informative, and all I had to do was stop by to leave the checks. A few thousand dollars in improvements helped me gain much much more in profit. I positively could not have done it without Carl, his expertise, and his connections. I would highly recommend him without question.
Carl was referred to me by a friend 5 years ago when I was starting to look fr my first home in Baltimore. He quickly learned what I was looking for and tailored our search down to properties that met my needs. Within a few weeks, we found a house and I bought it. Carl then helped to direct me to right mortgage officer, inspector, warranty, etc. I'd have no reservation on recommending Carl to anyone looking for a home for the first time or for their 10th home.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2007 for approximately $250K in Hampden, Baltimore, MD.
Carl handled both the sale of my home and purchase of another in 2007. Regarding the sale: Carl was good at recommending ways to fix my home up in preparation for the sale. He held an open house for local realtors and then for the public. He brought and cooked snacks for the open house - a really nice touch that made my home more atttractive to viewers. There were multiple offers on the property and Carl negotiated the contract. He helped me through the inspection process and negotiation and even helped me find people to do needed work. He took care of all contractual matters and came to the closing.
Regarding the purchase: Carl was extremely patient with my desire to view as many homes as possible. He screened homes and took me out on many visits. Of course he prepared the contract and helped me through the inspection process again. He took me on the walk-throughs and negotiated with the seller when something was broken that had not appeared at the inspection.
Overall: Carl is very responsive and does his job in a most professional way. He would bring documents to my home for review and signature and always returned calls promptly. Carl understands the emotional experience real estate transactions can be for the client and works to make the experience as painless as possible. He is an excellent sales person and knows how to market a property. I would definately use Carl the next time I have real estate needs.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $275K in Washington Hill, Baltimore, MD.
Carl handles the sale of my residence in 2008 as the market was going down hill and made a sale at 90% of the asking price in a horrible market. The sale was and closing was within 60 days of the listing. Many people can sell something sitting there but it was because of Carl's attention to detail and understanding of the market that we were able to close this deal. I now live between Costa Rica and Florida but if I should ever need an agent in his market area, Carl would be the only person I called. He is without question the best agent I have ever used and I have sold about 20 properties over my life time. Call him and he will do the same for you!
Sold a Single Family home in 2005 in Butcher's Hill, Baltimore, MD.
Carl was exceptional in his level of service, execution and speed at which things got done. I had moved away and there were a number of repair items that were needed for the house to go to closing. He handled hiring of the contractor and getting them completed in a timely manner at a fair price. I would enthusiastically recommend Carl.
