Carla was amazing. I live in another state and needed to sell my house quickly. The house had been lived in for many years and was in need of minor repairs and to be cleaned up. In less than a month, Carla had the entire house painted, new blinds and carpet installed, had a plumbing leak fixed, brought in a cleaning crew and had the house beautifully staged. She handled everything in an efficient manner in my absence. Carla provided me with daily detailed updates, including photos and videos. Not once did I call Carla and she didn’t answer or call me back within minutes. Once the job was completed, Carla put the house on the market. During the first open house she received 6 offers within 24 hours. The house sold for way over the asking price and closed escrow within thirty days. I could not have asked for more!

Carla is fabulous. She recently sold our house in Sherman Oaks on Chandler Blvd. Our home wasn't standard in any way and she took care to show it for the gem that it was. She helped us prepare the house for sale and then took over when we moved out. She is efficient, kept track of every detail, guided us through the bidding process with grace and speed and accuracy. She priced the house just right and we received three offers for over the asking price. She was always cheerful, energetic and professional. We always felt we were in good hands, our interests were well taken care of. She's terrific and I'd recommend her to anyone. Five stars!!

Carla represented me both in the sale of my condo, and the purchase of another. The escrow process was filled with overlapping dates, a lot of communication back and forth between the buyers, the sellers, escrow officers and assistants, loan officers and their assistants. Throughout the whole thing, Carla was the voice of reason and laser focused on making sure I knew everything that was going on, what the due dates were for inspections, paperwork, etc. I felt like her only client, and that she was representing my needs. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and will be using her, and her vendor recommends (loan officer, escrow company, etc) in the future.

From the moment I engaged Carla to sell my condo, she was getting comps, setting up showings, always advising me of inquiries (even if they were not in the ballpark), and was always hustling for me. Once we found a buyer, she represented both of us. Being a first-time seller, I was dubious and concerned that my best interests may not be served since she had the uncomfortable role of ensuring that both the buyer and seller were fairly represented. Not once did I feel that I was not her number one priority! She was open and honest about all facets of the negotiation and kept me apprised of all the steps of the escrow company up to the day of closing and subsequent payment. Carla was the voice of reason and laser focused on making sure I knew everything that was going on." Carla is the ultimate professional and I am now looking to her to assist me in an additional purchase

Carla was great to work with, professional, diligent, and honest. She helped us through the sale of a distressed property and got us a good price. She knows the market and knows the personalities of the buyers in this market.

If you are looking for a realtor in the valley look no further than Carla. From day one she was looking to understand what type of house we wanted. The process took longer than planned, but she stayed focused and looking for properties that we might be interested in. When we finally found the house she once again proved her value! Her attention to detail, knowledge of the process and dedication to getting us the best deal was invaluable in a difficult and challenging escrow. I can whole heartedly recommend Carla! She is the best person to help you get your dream home!

Carla helped me sell a rental property very quickly & with zero hassle. Any questions I had were answered promptly and so well. I was actually shocked at how easy the process was with Carla at the helm.

Carla worked as a sellers agent on the sale of a trust property in Sherman Oaks. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She was very helpful in finding good people that could make repairs and improvements as needed. The communication was very good, and at all times I was aware of what was transpiring. From start to finish the sale went without a hitch. I highly recommend Carla for any future transactions.

Patient, helpful, experienced and professional. She worked with me to find the perfect home. Totally satisfied with her representation. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home or sell a home.

From our initial meeting Carla displayed the knowledge and temperament to represent our property and meet our goals for sales timing and pricing. We would use Carla again for another sale, or purchase.

Carla handled a purchase for me that was 2 hours out of town in the desert where I only had 10 days to close an escrow as part of a 1031 exchange. The negotiation went perfectly and she followed up and oversaw every detail. I couldn't have been more satisfied and I highly recommend Carla. I've worked with many agents over a 30 year period of purchasing multiple properties and I could not have been happier!

I have known Carla a long time, and naturally turned to her to help sell my house. She had the house sold in a weekend!! She then saw me through a very stressful short sale process, making sure I had the best people on my team to deal with the bank. Carla’s honesty and integrity is of the highest caliber – she will always give you the straight story and honest facts of the given situation. Carla will be the person I go to when I search for my next home (be it a lease or a purchase).

It was a real pleasure working with Carla. She was instrumental in assisting me in finding the right rental for my family and I. I contacted her through a Zillow listing. The house I had my heart set had already been removed as a listing. She was kind enough to take my information and keep me posted if anything changed or if she acquired a similar listing. When the tenant for the house that I wanted had a change of heart, she contacted me immediately and lo and behold we secured the rental. Each of my meetings and conversations with Carla went smoothly. She's personable, text savvy, knowledgeable, full-time and most importantly truthful. It would be my pleasure to recommend Carla Patterson.

I'm so fortunate that my friend suggested Carla to help me rent my single family home in Encino. Carla dug in right away, coming up with a strategy, price point, pictures, etc. Within 2 weeks I had a tenant... and my tenant is the BEST EVER!! Rent is on time, and my house is being kept immaculately. Yay for Carla!
