Description

I am devoted to my career because I can make a profound difference in people’s lives. I began in the non-profit arena but found a real sense of belonging and purpose in real estate. For 25 years, I have collaborated with clients, helping them carefully navigate the most important transactions in their lives and often, becoming dear friends along the way. With an education in the humanities and study of creative thinking, I learned to embrace every challenge, overcome every roadblock, and am confident there is always a way – sometimes out of the box - to achieve results.

“Your extreme professionalism gave us the confidence that we would find a house! Your warmth and personality are evident in all the lives you’ve touched.”

MY ROLE IS AN ADVOCATE AND FACILITATOR – A FINANCIAL ADVISOR, EDUCATOR, COUNSELOR, NEGOTIATOR AND EXPERT MARKETING PERSON

Empowered, educated clients make the best financial decisions. I provide information and insight that people tell me instills confidence and trust - that’s how the process becomes less stressful and clients reach their goals even in a very competitive market. I am data-driven and proactive, working tirelessly to negotiate the very best price and terms for each buyer and seller.

“You are amazing in every aspect - honesty, professionalism, pacing your client, remembering our goals, not pushing but knowing when to nudge and when to tell us to stay away from a property.”

80% OF MY CLIENTS ARE EITHER FORMER CLIENTS OR REFERRALS

I have built a solid business and reputation based on the values I learned from my wonderful parents: responsiveness, ethics, and honesty. I answer calls quickly, honor my commitments, and tell clients the truth, even when the truth is difficult. I have also built strong, mutually-rewarding working relationships with a broad network of agents.

“How would you like to find an agent that you rave about 18 years AFTER you’ve bought your house? We did and we are. Carol is the consummate professional who makes house hunting at once fun and a good business deal. When Carol manages your deal, you realize that nothing replaces experience or an agent that truly cares about your needs.”

I BRING 25 YEARS OF MARKET KNOWLEDGE TO EVERY SITUATION

Living and working in the Bay Area since 1985, I know the neighborhoods, schools, trends, restaurants, resources and every aspect of our community. My instinct; sense of aesthetics; attention to detail; and understanding of building and development drive every element of the sale - from presenting the property to its best advantage, to producing eye-catching marketing materials and print media.

“Wow – we did it! And it’s all because of you! Thank you for everything you’ve done and taught us. We feel so lucky to have had such an honest, knowledgeable and fun person to work with.”

I AM A PROUD FOUNDING MEMBER OF SERENO GROUP FOCUSED ON THE QUALITY OF THE CLIENT’S EXPERIENCE

In just 9 years since we opened our doors, Sereno Group has grown to over 225 agents in 8 offices throughout the community. How was this accomplished? By sticking steadfastly to our original philosophy:
