Cari & Britt Group

  • Cari & Britt listed and sold my home

      Our family so appreciated Cato and Britt’s professional and empathetic approach. They were kind and respectful to every member of our family as we worked our way through the sale of our father’s home. They gave us clear advice and got us a better price then we expected. We will be happy to work with them in the future.

    • We recently worked with Britt and Cari to sell our house in Redondo Beach and cant speak highly enough about our experience. Britt was a pleasure to work with: she was attentive, detail-oriented, and wise beyond her years. Most importantly, she and her professional team made the process easy and headache-free for us. Britt and Cari have an incredible knowledge of the South Bay -- they helped us to understand the market, expertly stage our house for success, and deliver on the plan. We sold our house very quickly, for a price we were thrilled with, and there were no issues that Britt couldnt help us navigate. We cant recommend Britt and Cari enough for any of your South Bay real estate needs.

      - Matt Huntley
    • Working with Cari and her team was the best decision we have ever made! Cari navigated us through an incredibly competitive market and knows the South Bay area intimately. Cari showed us 25+ homes at a moments notice even with Covid restrictions, worked around our ever changing schedules, and was incredibly patient with us, especially our toddler boys. She guided us towards right homes and helped us avoid the challenging ones. Ultimately, through her expansive network and strong relationships, Cari found our dream home. She made the inspection and closing process seamless. We cant thank her enough and highly recommend hiring Cari and her team!!!!!

      - Jim Opdyke
    • Britt was amazing and we are forever grateful she was our realtor! She found us our dream home! After being outbid in many homes, we decided to make a change and found Britt. The moment we established our relationship she got to work for us! Service was personal and professional. She literally knows everyone in the South Bay. Those relationships allowed her to find us our dream home OFF MARKET right away! We had no bidding war and escrow was a breeze. I cannot recommend the Cari & Britt realty group enough. Its hard to be a buyer right now, and a savvy realtor like Britt is what will set you apart from the pack. Good luck!

      - Raj Shankar
    • We would like to thank Cari and her team for all of the work they did in getting a beautiful downtown LA apartment for us. From day 1, Cari was extremely responsive. Emails, early morning texting, late night phone calls, she was on it. All throughout the negotiations and closing, Cari was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. Her work is backed by the latest technology, making all the documentation work extremely easy and efficient. We closed the purchase within two weeks! What a terrific agent and wonderful person to have representing us! We would highly recommend Cari and her team to anyone that is looking for a new home here in Southern California

      - Sandy and Jason
    • Cari is absolutely amazing! As busy professionals, my husband and I were very hands off with the sale of our home. Cari hired and coordinated all of the professionals (contractor, stager, photographer, mover, cleaner) to prepare our home for sale. She did it with efficiency and economy. All of the prep paid off. We received multiple offers at or near asking price. I have worked with numerous realtors over the past years. Cari is absolutely the best. She is honest, efficient, professional and most of all, a great friend

      - Kim Family
    • Cari & Britt is most trustful and professional real estate agent team we know of, and we strongly recommend this team to anyone who are planning to buy/sell house in the South Bay area!! Cari was the buyer's agent and she helped our home purchase in the PV area in September 2020. When we started house hunting, we thought it would be an extremely difficult process - as we were living in east coast and traveling to west was with lots of restrictions due to the covid pandemic. On behalf of us, Cari attended almost all inspections and house tours, and shared all information needed to make decisions with us in a timely manner. Cari was very knowledgable in the local market and had great connections with inspectors, contractors, other local vendors etc. With that, she answered all questions and concerns we had, and even when the answer to our question was undesirable one, she was always transparent and gave us unbiased opinions. Even after the deal was closed and the key was handed off, she kept caring about how we are doing and helped us a lot such as scheduling house cleaning, collecting information for setting up new life etc. We really appreciated it. Needless to day, finding a trustful advisor is one of the most important and most difficult part of house purchase process. To that point, we were so lucky to have met with Cari and her team. Thank you very much!!

      - K.T.
    • Cari and Britt were phenomenal, easy to work with, and just great people. They provided tailored information even before we met them. They conscientiously and proactively handled all the details of the sale. They obtained quality contractors and oversaw their work. They were genuinely excited to bring out the best in my Aunt's home, bring it to market, and make the sale. The home was in a trust and they were knowledgeable about the nuances of a sale of property in a trust. Their greatest quality besides being outstanding realtors is that they listen. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a realtor in the Redondo Beach area.

      - Sandy Hastings
    • Cari was such a joy to work with! Its been a 2 year process and she couldnt have been more professional, easy to work with, efficient, knowledgeable, seamless and, most of all, fun!! We had a great experience with Cari and her fabulous team and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a house! You will not be disappointed!

      - Tracey Lee
    • Cari was the sellers' agent when we bought our home 22 years ago. She made such an impression on me then that I knew when it came time to sell, she'd be the one I'd call. Selling a home after 22 years is stressful... due to divorce, overwhelming! ... AND in the midst of a pandemic? HELLP!! Cari calmed my fears and assured me she would honor my needs throughout the process. I felt safe and protected throughout and on all levels. The bumps were manageable because she was by my side every step of the way. She advised us to price just right and when it came time to negotiate, she was a ninja - strong, clear and classy. Her team is solid and seamless. Linda's staging was gorgeous and really made us stand out among the other listings in the area. Emily's photography captured every highlight of the space. Shannon ensured that we had premiere exposure on all the sites. The video tour reduced walk through traffic. And having Holly on call for any legal questions put my mind at ease. Because of her team's approach and attention to every important detail, we sold in the first two days with backup offers! Cari communicated with us consistently throughout, provided super helpful checklists of the process so I knew exactly what to expect and when and even offered me help with my move. Professional and friendly service is how Cari's still making a great impression 22 years later!

      - Michelle Browning
    • Cari & Britt are the best! They took the time to listen to what we needed and what was important to us and found us the best opportunity and what will be our home for years to come (or possibly forever)! Would happily recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the greater South Bay area!

      - Travis Brashears
    • From start to end, Britt made our purchase and transaction seamless. Her help advising us during the search and the follow through post close was extremely valuable especially as the entire process was done remotely.

      - Derrick Tzau
    • Cari & Britt are friendly, professional people who are also amazing agents to work with. They have an amazing team supporting them that are just as easy to work with. Having full-time jobs while living in Santa Clarita and selling a home in Palos Verdes Estates was not going to be easy or convenient. Cari and her team stepped up to assist us with all the activities needed to prep the home for sale. From the estate sale, to donations, to trash pick up and house cleaning they have a person for it all. They are always quick to respond to texts or emails even while theyre on vacation. Cari was very helpful in negotiating with a very challenging buyer. Thank you Cari, Britt and Team.

      - J.G.
    • We have known Cari for over 10 years, she helped us buy our first home. 10 years later, Cari & Britt helped us sell the same home. They were very instrumental in getting the property prepped for sale, and getting us through the process. It was even more impressive as we were no longer living there, and were out of state. Their contacts throughout the South Bay enabled us to be able to get the property quickly prepped for listing, within days of our tenants moving out. They were also able to coordinate numerous showings and help us negotiate the best price. During escrow, all of the agreed upon repairs were coordinated by Britt, and they enabled us to be very responsive to the buyers. Without their expertise and network, we wouldn't have been able to buy or sell this home. If we ever move back to the South Bay, we'll be sure to call them.

      - Regina Mok
    • I have worked with this team 4 times, buying and selling over the past 20+ years. I wouldnt use anyone else and recommend them to everyone I know. They are such a pleasure to work with and make a stressful transaction as easy as possible. They are professional, friendly, on top of it but easy going at the same time. If not for them, Im sure the outcome in each transaction would have been inferior. They know the business, they know the market, and they have decades of contacts to assist you with anything you may need. I really cant say enough about Cari and Britt. I guarantee you will be happy you chose them!

      - Kelly Webb
    • Cari Corbalis is a true professional. Her knowledge of the market and exactly what it takes to get a property sold especially through these hard times is extraordinary! She really goes the extra mile to take care of everything. She has great people working with her . We are in Texas and sold our house in California with no effort on our part. She took care of everything for us and the house sold in 1 day! Selling or buying a house can be very stressful, I would highly recommend Cari and Britt to get the job done. They are very pleasant to work with!

      - Lisa Vega
    • I was looking for the right realtor when my mother and I met Cari at one of the properties she was representing at an open house. I think the first thing that drew us in was how genuine Cari is on the outset. When you meet her, she is incredibly open and warm. Our family had gone through a stressful year with my husband deployed (Active Duty Military) and my father passing away just a few months prior. We had been living in the area for almost 5 years and decided that this is where we wanted to live permanently and were looking toward our future after the military. Cari from the start, was attentive, kind, hard-working and detail-oriented. She is the kind of professional that isnt happy unless her client is thoroughly happy, but she doesnt sugar coat things. She always made sure that we were completely aware of the pros and cons of houses we were interested in. When we started working with her, she was working with me here, and my husband on the other side of the globe. She is awesome with communication and very timely. There wasnt a time that I remember where I asked her a question through text or email and she didnt answer within minutes. She reached out to our loan officer and title company and pretty much handled every detail. When she helped us find the perfect house, she made sure to line up the inspectors and best professionals to make sure we knew what needed attention. She even created a spreadsheet to keep track our perfect house needed a bit of work! The seller was a bit difficult, but she was able to help us negotiate the best outcome we could get from the seller. Once we closed, she continued to be engaged to ensure that all our issues were properly addressed and that we were happy. Now that its all over, we consider her to be our good friend and not just our realtor.

      - Monica Reinhart
    • Cari is awesome. My wife and I worked with her for nine months trying to find the right place. She is thoughtful, knowledgable and networked. We found a great place and would not have been able to do it without Cari Corbalis.

      - Rick Kieser
    • Britt was amazing! She gave me great advice and helped me every step of the way. I would recommend her for anyone looking at buying or selling a property.

      - Karen Gilgenbach
    • As a marketing exec and my husband being a finance guy, we had high expectations of service and professionalism right from the start. After finding Cari & Britt online and meeting with them (which I highly encourage), we loved their strategic approach. They are both amazingly smart, realistic and respectful. Not only are Cari & Britth highly knowledgeable, they completely customized the process of selling and buying a home, including overcoming several challenges in the process (water infiltration, complex inspections and extra negotiations). Cari & Britt have wonderful personal values and they take those to work everyday. Choose them and you will make profitable transactions and reach your ultimate goals.

      - Evelyne Ouellet
    • My wife and I met Cari and Britt several months ago when we decided to downsize from our home to a smaller townhouse. We were very particular in what we were looking for condition, size and location. I sold real estate for over 10 years so I am pretty thorough and tough in evaluating agents and their knowledge. After our first meeting, we were immediately impressed with Cari. Her knowledge of the area and real estate market was obvious. She was very thoughtful in showing us realistic properties that met our needs. We went through different ideas and phases of what we wanted, but she never lost her enthusiasm to help us find what was just right for us. When it came time to sell our home, we saw another side of her. Not only does she have referrals to electricians, plumbers, painters just about every type of repair person, she also helped stage our home for the sale. She has endless energy and is very quick to respond to questions or requests. Bottom line is we sold our home before the first open house for well over the asking price. She handled all of the small details and made the whole process of buying and selling our home very pleasant (at least the business/financial part the actual moving part still stinks). Cari even showed up several times to help us pack and checked on us on the actual moving day. I really cant say enough about Cari and her team of professionals (Britt, Linda and Shannon were equally amazing). I would highly recommend the Cari and Britt Group for all your real estate needs.

      - Mike Cappodano
    • Couldn't have had a more positive first home buying experience than the one we had with Britt and Cari! We worked predominantly with Britt and were consistently impressed with her analytical skills, responsiveness, organization, relationships with other realtors, and innate aptitude for real estate. In addition to valuing her professional excellence, her enthusiasm and humor brought enjoyment to a process that could have felt like a chore. We absolutely hope to work with her in the future, although we're pretty happy with the home she helped us buy. But in the mean time, we will be sending friends and family her and Cari's way!

      - Kendall Waters
    • We just had the opportunity to work with Cari and Britt to sell our mothers home after she passed away. Cari and Britt impressed us from the first phone call to their office when Britt picked up right away and answered all our questions as we were interviewing many realtors before deciding to work with Cari and Britt. They arranged to meet with us shortly after the call and brought examples of their work, market analysis and comparisons, and information about their amazing team that works seamlessly to sell a home. During that initial meeting, they shared their keen ability to see what needs to be improved in the home before putting it on the market, something that made them stand out from other realtors. Cari and Britt are friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. They treated us and the property with respect throughout the process. They take pride in what they do and maintain good relationships with other professionals in the business. This all helps them get things done well and quickly which is important in this market. They provided us with information based on their experience selling homes and they were responsive to our questions and concerns. They were always easy to work with, available, upfront, and honest. Since our mother had lived in the home for 45 years, there were things that needed to be updated and improved before the sale. Cari and Britt guided us on what needed to be done, found all the professionals we could work with, and then arranged to have all the work done very quickly. We did not have to be there to oversee anything! They have worked in this business for a long time and recommended to us only the best people to do high quality work. Cari and Britt are very attentive to all the details. We could not have been happier with the results. They did a great job pricing our mothers home to sell and paired that with excellent marketing. The teams very strong marketing approach is far reaching and begins with exceptional staging, beautiful photos, and well written marketing materials. The excellence in marketing outshines others we have seen. When it came time to decide on offers, Cari and Britt gave us all the information we needed to make good decisions. They were professional in all negotiations with the buyers realtor and made our experience with escrow very smooth. During this entire process, we felt in very capable hands which meant less stress for us. We really wish we had another house to sell because we really enjoyed working with Cari and Britt!

    • Cari recently helped my mom sell her home of 50 years, and she could not have done a better job. Cari helped my mom understand the process, all the necessary steps, and set appropriate expectations. She has great knowledge of the market, and a real feel for how things are moving because she is so active in the marketplace. Cari was incredibly organized, detail oriented, and made a real effort to understand the specifics of my mom's situation. She does a great job of giving well informed, professional advice, but makes it clear the decision is yours in all cases. She is highly responsive, and a true problem solver as various issues inevitably arise during the home sale process. On top of all of her skills as a realtor, Cari is just a pleasure to work with. I told her at the end that I wish I had another house to sell so I could hire her. Highly recommend.

      - Dan Prislin
    • Cari and Britt helped my brother and I purchase our last two properties. In the most recent transaction, there were 6 offers. We only had 20% down but beat out the other offers, two of which were all cash. We have found that because Cari and Britt have a track record of working in the South Bay and are well known and respected, they often have inside information from the agents working on the other side. This has benefited us greatly along with their seasoned advice. They put our best interest first. I have referred them to three friends already who feel the same way I do.

      - Dillon Clayton
    • These 2 women are an incredible team. Their knowledge and relationships in the South Bay market are vast and a definite benefit when your buying and selling your home. We have had 3 real estate transactions with them in the past 5 years. They understand what an important decision it is and they go above and beyond to help in any way they can. So smart, kind and reliable. Britt and Cari are the best around. I trust them 100%!

      - Teri Velardi
    • We had been considering a move for over 4 years and watched the market get more and more competitive. We finally made the decision to sell our house first. From our initial phone meeting, Britt assured me that she had helped dozens of families in our situation. She also understood the challenges of having two young kids (and dogs!) and worked around our schedule to minimize the disruption to our family. When we first met with Cari and Britt, we admired their professionalism and expertise in the South Bay market, but most importantly we liked their strategy and how they planned to market our house. They suggested a 60-day rent back to give us time to find our next house. We chose to sign with them almost immediately. From there, Britt and her team got to work on getting our place ready to sell. We had done a pre-inspection that helped us pinpoint key areas to address. They handled all of the appointments to fix up our house - gardener, painter, electrician, staging, etc. Britt always had a strong recommendation yet every decision still felt like our own. We listened to her advice and felt that all of the extra work truly helped us show the maximum potential for our house. And it worked! We had 10 offers after the open house weekend. Then we experienced something that we did not expect- our first buyer got cold feet. Britt immediately lined up our backup choices and even scheduled new showings. With her efforts, we found a comparable offer in 3 days and were back on track. As with any escrow, there can be challenges, and it makes a difference having a team that understands how to make it work for both sides. When our inspection revealed a recent mold issue, Britt stepped in to negotiate on our behalf and always had our best interest in mind. Once we were in the clear, it was time to start looking for a new home before the clock ran out! Britt started sending us listings before they were on the market. We only had to look at a few before we found the perfect house. It seemed out of reach but Britt was willing to try for us. She worked with the other agent and helped us craft a desirable offer. Ill never forget the call when Britt told us that it was going to be our home! From then on, everything came together. Britt continued to look out for us as her clients all the way through the move and beyond. We absolutely could not have done it without Britt and highly recommend her team to make your next home purchase goals a reality.

      - Lisa Delanty
    • We love Cari & Britt! They are extraordinarily knowledgeable about the South Bay market and gave us excellent recommendations for staging and showing our house. Their open house was so successful that we ended up with several competitive offers that resulted in our house selling over our original asking price! We couldnt believe it. In addition to their professionalism, expertise and strong work ethic, they also are the kindest, most gracious people! We loved working with them and absolutely recommend them to everyone!

      - Jessica Bruislow
    • Cari and Britt did an amazing job for us. Patient, responsive, optimistic, honest. Their team had our home looking wonderful for the open house and we had multiple offers in a few days. And the process was mostly fun. Weve worked with good realtors before, but never this good.

      - Jeanne Hamilton
    • Cari & Britt helped with the sale of my fathers townhome in Redondo Beach and they are amazing! Cari was professional and very easy to work with. We had multiple full price offers after the first open houses and closed over the asking price. My father moved from Redondo Beach where he had lived for over 30 years, to be closer to family in Northern California and my husband and I needed local agents tp navigate a long-distance sale. Cari and Britt were perfect. They had excellent recommendations for reasonably priced painters, stagers, haulers and even movers everything we needed for a quick and easy sale. Cari went above and beyond to oversee everything. She coordinated the painting, staging, incidental repairs and unexpected issues. She has a great eye for detail and suggested cosmetic repairs and clean up to the townhome complex that benefited the buyer and current residents. I highly recommend Cari and Britt you wont find a more committed and professional team in the South Bay. Thank you Cari and Britt!

      - Shardra Murphy
    • My husband and I had the very good fortune to attend an open house ad discover this charming and beautiful woman showing a home. Don't let her looks deceive you as she is also intelligent, intuitive, friendly and honest. Cari listens to what you want and confers with you in a straightforward manner. She's fabulous! Call Cari, you will be delighted!

      - Robin Swartwout
    • Cari assisted us in a purchase and a sale concurrently. i dont know how the process could have been more frictionless and successful.. I highly recommend Cari&Britt for your residential South Bay needs

      - Jim Swartwout
    • Outstanding service and performance in the June 2019 sale of our home in Redondo Beach. Team included top quality designer/stager and photographer. Strongly recommended!

      - Timothy Turner
    • Cari is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Shes professional and personable and magically knows about properties before they hit the market. Cant say enough good about this team!

      - Jeffrey Russell
    • Cari & Britt helped my husband and I sell our first home and they are fantastic. We had poured our heart and soul into renovating that home and they put just as much care and detail into selling it. Their marketing is exceptional and creative and they went above and beyond, even hiring a barista to serve beverages to potential buyers on our Spanish patio. We had multiple offers on our home and it sold for well above asking price. They were also able to negotiate a rent back so that we could stay until we were ready to move, which was extremely helpful as we were caring for a newborn and toddler at the time. I cannot speak highly enough about Cari & Britt and would recommend them to anyone!

      - Brittany Lyons
    • I cant say enough about Cari, Britt, and their entire team. Cari stuck with us over the course of the past year, first helping us find a rental when we relocated to Southern California, then as we searched off and on to purchase our home. Warm, friendly, helpful and deeply knowledgable about the market, Cari always treated us like good friends. Were so appreciative and thankful to have found such fantastic people to help us in our search. We finally closed on our new house in PVE and are super excited! Thank you, Cari!!! If youre looking to work with a realtor who really knows what they are doing and is also supremely warm and genuine, then give Cari and Britt a call! Youll be very glad you did.

      - Aron Lusen
    • I found Cari and Britt through lots of research online and after interviewing 3 different agents, these ladies were head and shoulders above the others. My father owned a house in Redondo Beach with a fantastic ocean view and after he passed away it was occupied by tenants for many years. They did not keep the property in great shape so I was apprehensive about what I needed to do to sell it. I could do nothing at all or I could put some money into it and make it really stand out. After meeting with Cari and Britt and listening to their wise insights, together we came up with a plan. They have a group of reliable tradespeople at their fingertips and we got the house market ready very quickly. I always felt so well taken care of and very protected throughout the whole process. Never having sold a home, they took me under their wing and made sure that everything was explained thoroughly and I never felt rushed or pressured. I am happy to say that I now count these ladies as true friends as well as great real estate agents. I highly recommend them!!!!

      - Kimberly Maugeri
    • To sum it up Cari gets the job done. From the moment I met Cari I trusted her and felt comfortable with her. Sold my home for full asking after my first open house in a semi stagnant market, I couldnt be happier. She was in my corner from start to finish and worked with me and was always available to me. What I look for in a real estate broker is someone I can trust and who is competent and able to get the job done seamlessly. Cari did all these things with ease. I highly recommend working with her - you will not be disappointed.
