Carol and Greg helped me liquidate my mother's estate. They were both very processional and attentive to all details. It was a pleasure to work with them!

Carol was extremely knowledgeable of the area. We clicked right from the beginning due to her attention to our preferences. She was a great advocate for us and a thorough professional throughout the process.

With our relocation to Jakarta, Carol was proactive and flexible to make sure the sale went as quickly and smoothly as possible. For anyone looking to sell their home quickly and get a great price, Carol is the right person for the job. Her market knowledge and willingness to jump in an help out from finding the right repair person to staging the home made the difference and saved us money. You can't go wrong by choosing Carol and her team!

Carol was a great partner through the entire process. During our initial conversations she laid out a clear plan and timeline, and executed on the aggressive timing. She was easily accessible, flexible, and supportive in all aspects of the sale. I will recommend Carol to anyone in the area and won't hesitate to look her up for my next move.

Carol was always on top of the process from day 1 helping to navigate the complexity of my relocation from the east coast to the west coast. She was always immediately available and provided direct and timely communication. Carol continues to offer assistance in getting acclimated to the area and provide contacts and resources (after closing). Thanks for being the rock during an oftentimes unstable buying process for me! I certainly appreciated the knowledge and understanding of the CA market which helped us to get into a house very quickly.

Carol Sawdey was absolutely amazing to work with! She is very easy to work with, accommodating and extremely responsive to questions & inquiries. Carol always followed up with either text messages, emails or phone calls. I really appreciated her communication style. Carol's marketing plan was just right for my home and area -- it was spot on. She made the entire transaction easy and offered support when I needed it due to my work/travel schedule. I would absolutely recommend Carol to any of my work colleagues or family in that area should they need a realtor. If I return to the Bay Area and need to find a home, Carol will be my first call.

During the final Inspection I was requesting a third party inspection to make sure everything works especially for appliances and other fittings. I was advised that for new construction its not necessary however after the closing I hade issue with Owen not working ,ceiling fan pre-installed missing the support box .So suggest to have a 3rd party inspection for future also for new construction.

We were confident about Carol selling our home, but she completely blew us away with her incredible counsel, insight, creativity and marketing savvy, to name a few! She is extremely knowledgeable about San Ramon and the Tri-Valley in general--and, she ultimately knows what it will take to sell your home quickly and for top dollar! Carol doesn't force her clients to do unnecessary work to prep your house for a competitive market (she's a fabulous stager, to boot). We really appreciated her honesty and integrity. Moreover, Carol was THE calm in the storm of selling the home we owned for more than 20 years. She was wonderfully patient and supportive throughout the entire house selling process--truly in sync with her clients. Carol is a treasure in the real estate business. We absolutely recommend folks contact Carol for buying or selling your home!

Overall, the agent did a decent job. It is difficult to criticize when the final sales price ends up being well above asking. However, we were selling in a very hot/desirable market, so we don't think we were very difficult clients. The reasons why we gave a lukewarm review is because we expected more attention to detail and concern for our property. Perhaps we got a general dislike for agents in because our property was not respected as much as we would have liked. (For example the heat was left on after the home inspection resulting in a large utility bill. We were no longer living in the home, so we expected the agent to "button up" the property for us. We found the back door not only unlocked, but wide open to the garage on two occasions. To be fair, perhaps this was not our agent's fault, but our home was her responsibility.) Our agent let buyers in the home well after reasonable hours. She emphatically denied the authorization, but evidence proves otherwise. \r\n\r\nWe accepted an offer well over asking, but the house inspector recommended a few expensive repairs. We do believe our agent did a good job negotiating the cost of the repairs, but we would have preferred to reduce the price of the house to cover the costs. Instead, our agent strongly recommended writing a check for the price of the repairs (she said it would send red flags to the lender and might make the deal fall apart). It didn't dawn on us until later that perhaps she was protecting her commission by having us write such a check. The commission should have been reduced accordingly. That was not the agent's "fault". It was us not being experienced.

Carol went above and beyond to ensure that we got the house that we wanted and the home was ready for closing. She always made time in her schedule to accommodate our needs and provide necessary information to move forward with the closing process.

Carol was a pleasure to work with, she is knowledgeable, patient and fun. We were from out of state and she kept us informed about things in the process, that might be different than what we had experienced in Colorado.

We are from New York State originally and the selling and purchase procedure is very different. We were used to the process including attorneys and the buyer paying commission to their own real estate agent. The Title Company in California has a much bigger role than in NY. However we appreciated the expediency of Docusign.
