Happy Clients

“I am a difficult client to deal with and Carla was absolutely superb. She is the consummate professional with extensive market knowledge, wonderful listening skills, and exhibits the highest integrity. Carla also has remarkable negotiating skills which will lead to the maximum dollar return for you as a seller. I highly recommend her for either side of a real estate transaction without any hint of reservation.”

by Rick Brennes

"Carla went above and beyond as my agent, helping me with various details to make the preparation for getting the house on the market (suggestions in the 'make ready' phase) and to close very seamless. She really cared about my situation and wanted to assure I was satisfied every step of the way. She ran interference on the details and some issues that popped up so I didn't have to worry about those hassles allowing me to focus on my move to another house. I really appreciated that a lot."

by Deborah Fleming

“No problem pertaining to the sale seemed too overwhelming to Carla, and we had a few rough spots. Her can-do attitude and passion for doing her job well carried us all through what can be a very emotionally draining experience. Carla made us feel that selling our house was the most important job she had to do.”

by Phyllis Jackson Stegall

"There are so many agents to choose from but so few who really pay attention to what you need and want in your home. Carla negotiates hard for you and goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with the fine print. She is not just another agent, she has become a member of the family. As a home buyer, Carla was my buyer's agent and represented me in the purchase of my home."

by John Ngo

"Carla Black is amazing. Not only is Carla great at what she does, she is a wonderful person. I highly recommend her for her expertise when you are ready to purchase a home. She is attentive and continues to be a spectacular realtor. Carla was honest and professional. It was our first home buying experience and she has guided us throughout the entire process. Any questions or concerns she is a call or text away. With her great negotiation skills, we were able to purchase a beautiful home that was move-in ready, in a great neighborhood and well within our budget."

by Jenni Babi

"We knew from a family member that Carla would be great to work with. She made this a painless process that went beyond expectations - especially as first-time buyers. I plan on using her again in the future because she is a true professional in this industry."

by Dan Hofmann

"Carla goes 'above and beyond,', goes 'that extra mile,', gives '110%' -- anything that says 'she kicks ass and delivers more than you'd ever expect' is the right way to say it."
