  • Carl helped me buy a home

      Carl is amazing. After working with a broker that did not meet our needs. Carl stepped in and was extremely patient and thorough explaining the first time home buying process and listen to all our concerns. He was able to problem solve and was a major help with closing our home. I highly recommend Carl!

    • Carl helped me buy a home

        I used Carl Medford eight years ago when I bought my first home which I still live in. He was a breath of fresh air after utilizing the services of previous real estate agents who just did not listen to my needs or desires. Carl is well known and liked in the community, he found great homes for me to view, and he was honest and thoughtful in helping me pick out just the right home. You couldn't ask for a better professional to navigate the real estate market.

      • Carl listed and sold my home

          Well, we ended up selling the lot on Bess due to ever increasing construction costs. Not only did Carl help us sell the lot, but we found our dream home on a full acre in Livermore. Carl and his team helped us with both transactions there and is now helping sell our home in Fremont. Not letting anyone but Carl and the Medford Team handle our home sales or listings. No one does it better! Thank you so much!!

        • Carl listed and sold my home

            i would like to thank Carl Medford and his team for the work that they did in getting my condo to be sold. They are the true definition of professionalism. They did everything I could of asked for and more. They were honest in telling me I needed to clean up my place, they did staging, and recommended great contractors to work on my condo. I definitely would recommend them to anybody if you are buying or selling.

          • Carl listed and sold my home

              Carl Medford sold my mother in law's house after she passed away several years ago. When it came time to sell my house, Carl was my first choice. I interviewed a second realtor, but decided to go with Carl. Good choice. Besides Carl's expertise and integrity, he brings a full team to the client. His team handled all of the arrangements: inspections, repairs, cosmetic improvements like painting and landscaping. No detail was too small. When we hit some roadbumps along the way, Carl was able to keep the process on track and we closed on schedule. Integrated into Carl's team is a Staging company who made the recommendations to put the house in it's best light to get the top dollar on the sale.

            • Carl listed and sold my home

                carl and his team are undescribable. They not only have the reputation of being one of the best realtor group in the East Bay they outsmart the rest of the middle pak by a million miles. Very thorough and professional in their methods and I liked every bit of the marketing strategy. They have a very good team of contractors who are inexpensive and also take care of your home needs in a very good fashion. This is our second time for us to be able to work with carl's team. The staging was an absolute beauty which got us a pretty good deal than what we initially aimed for. We will not hesitate one single bit to work with his team in the future. Thank you Carl & his team!!

              • Carl helped me buy a home

                  Bradley and Carl was amazing to work with. From the start he was so patient, caring and knowledgeable. He always responded right away to any email or text. He is the real reason we now live in our dream house. He has a great personality and easy to talk to. This is the reason the seller went with our offer vs the other buyer's. Bradley kept us informed and with his recommendations we were able to get a killer deal. It was a true pleasure to buy our home. How often do you hear that?

                • Carl listed and sold my home

                    I dreaded the idea of going through the process of selling the house. I googled the top realtors in my area and the reviews led me to the right person. Carl and his excellent team made this experience as least daunting and intimidating as possible. He very patiently answered my endless questions and in a timely manner too. What impressed me the most about Carl is his honesty.

                  • Carl helped me buy a home

                      The Medford team made the whole home buying process easy! Carl, was great handing the documents in a timely fashion! Mike Strle, was our Realtor, He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy! Communication was outstanding! Would recommend The Medford team to anyone who is looking to buy a home, they are excellent!

                    • Carl helped me buy a home

                        We just moved into our new home and the entire process from home identification, offer, negotiation, loan process and close out went by smoothly - all thanks to Carl and his team. Carl is a thorough professional, always prompt with his responses and inputs. He has been a partner providing suggestions on the overall process. We are glad we partnered with Carl and team on our home identification and will definitely continue to partner with him in the future!

                      • Carl Medford and team are amazing! We have both sold and recently bought with Carl and his team who provided exceptional service. Our questions were always promptly answered and the ease of the process showed their professionalism and attention to detail and excellence. Thank you Carl and team.

                        - Chris N.
                      • Carl and Sheryl has been nothing but spectacular. From the first meeting through the entire process their expertise shined through! Their recommendations and knowledge of the current real estate market helped direct us to make sound decisions in prepping the house for sale. His team was professional and very helpful. Thank you and your team!

                        - Byron R.
                      • Lori Parks and The Medford Team were excellent in helping us find our new home. She was knowledgeable and professional during the whole process. She helped explain things well and were responsive whenever we have any questions. She was wonderful and it was a great pleasure working with her.

                        - Dale K.
                      • My wife and I worked with Lori Parks and her team to buy a home in Newark. Since it was a new construction, we didn't quite know what to expect. Lori was incredibly patient and walked us through the process every step of the way. She was extremely responsive and answered all our questions promptly. She really knows her trade and despite my reservations, ensured that the deal closed on time without any compromise in quality. She did a couple of walkthroughs with us, created a list of action items for the builder and made sure they were all taken care of before the deal was closed. I highly recommend Lori and her team for anyone looking for realtor services in the East Bay area.

                        - Diptesh C.
                      • Buying a home is stressful, but Carl went the extra mile to make sure we knew what was going on, and he definitely had our best interest in mind! As first time home buyers, we asked a million questions and needed a lot of guidance, and Carl was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable with everything! Hands down the best realtor in the Bay Area!!

                        - Rachel C.
                      • 3/26/2017Carl is by far the best decision we've made in our entire home buying process (besides the house we bought!). He came in highly recommended by many friends and family and definitely did not let us down. He is very responsive, experienced, knowledgable of the entire process, meticulous and honest. Me being someone who wanted to heavily be involved, Carl was so patient to answer each of my questions and educated me through it all. I also loved the fact that he was honest with his opinions and recommendations. There were many opportunities where Carl could have pushed us to buy a house but he did not and patiently waited with us till the right home showed up all while providing honest and fair assessment of each property we saw. Besides real estate knowledge, Carl also had extensive contracting experience which provided us good information on remodeling parts of our house The home we ended up purchasing could not have been any better and the price negotiated by Carl fit what we had in mind. Yup, Carl's the man!

                        - Logesh K.
                      • Lori Parks did an amazing job helping my husband and I purchase our home in the East Bay. She showed us many different homes that all met our criteria and provided honest and thoughtful critiques of each option. If she saw a problem she would let us know immediately and was never hesitant to provide full disclosure on her thoughts about each home. When our home search timeline became a little more urgent with the news that I was pregnant and the house we were renting was up for sale, she was easily able to help us broaden our search and find the perfect home. We are extremely happy with the service we received and we will send everyone we know who may be looking for a home in the East Bay area to her.

                        - Caitlin D.
                      • This was my 2nd experience working with Carl and The Medford Team. He helped us buy our first home 3.5 years ago. Carl's team has some wonderful extras (staging and moving trucks are part of the deal!). We had two weekends of open houses and then were able to sit back and chose from 15 (!!) different offers. We were able to finalize on one of the offers and it greatly exceeded our expectations! We strongly recommend the Medford Team for buying and selling a home!

                        - Sean N.
                      • It is a great pleasure to work with the Medford Team. The team is very professional. I'm very satisfied with the entire process through staging the house, advertising it on multiple channels and negotiating the sale. The house looked much better on posting pictures. We attracted hundreds of visitors and thousands of viewers on Zillow, Trulia and Redfin. I'm happy that we got the offer at the listed price. And, they also help me when I move to the new place. I would highly recommend everyone to work with your team when you sell or buy your properties.

                        - Thanh V.
                      • Used The Medford Team again, but this time to sell our house. Once again, they were fabulous. They took wonderful professional pictures of the house, plus a 3-D Virtual Tour, which is really cool. We had so many people show up to the open house, and had several great offers to choose from. We closed in 20 days, during the holidays. They are so easy to work with, and make everything very smooth!

                        - Janessa S.
                      • Carl, Sheryl and everyone at the Medford team were outstanding! First class service from start to finish, and got me more than what I ever imagined possible by doing an awesome staging of my home. I moved out of state and trusted Carl with everything, and so glad I did. He treated my home as if it were his own, went the extra mile in getting everything fixed and ready for sale. I highly recommend the Medford team with any real estate transaction, would never consider anyone else.

                        - Gordon S.
                      • This is the second time I've worked with the Medford Team and I was delighted with each engagement. They are thorough, efficient, and they keep their commitments. They use modern technology to handle signing the reams of paperwork that go along with a home sale and getting through it was a breeze. The sale went through without a hitch. If ever I purchase another home in the East Bay, Carl and his team will definitely get my business.

                        - Alan M.
                      • Working with Lori Parks for the purchase of our home was a pleasure. She was always accessible and very patient. Our situation was unique in that we were relocating from NYC and trying to find a house in about 3-4 days. She gave us her complete attention while we were here and made sure we found a great place to call home. I would recommend the Medford team to my friends.

                        - Josh N.
                      • I've appreciated working with Carl Medford and his team both when I bought, and sold a house. I'm grateful that I could depend on his knowledge; and trust his integrity and honesty in everything. Once you're his client, he is always available for giving advice and referrals for all the problems that can arise for a new homeowner; and I've always found that any workmen/craftsmen he refers are equally honest and trustworthy

                        - Kathy H.
                      • Working with Carl was a pleasure and I would encourage anyone looking to buy or sell in the East Bay to reach out to him. He covered everything we needed to sell our home including staging, setting up open houses and advising us to select the best offer. I was most impressed by how responsive Carl was. He was always a quick call or text away and would never go longer than an hour without responding.

                        - Jaime R.
                      • This was our second time working with Carl and his team and both times we were so pleased with our experience. This being our first time selling our home, we had no idea what to expect and had tons of questions. Carl answered all of our questions promptly and clearly, making us feel much more comfortable with a usually stressful process. With Carl's help we were able to quickly list and sell our condo within a week! I couldn't believe how quickly it all went by. Thank you to Carl and his team on the sale of our condo!

                        - Ashley M.
                      • Carl and his team made our home buying process so simple. We were first time home buyers, and he walked us through everything with understanding and patience. When we emailed or called him to ask a question, he responded quickly and thoroughly. He came highly recommended, and our own experience with him could not have been better. I would not hesitate to refer his team to any of my own family members or friends.

                        - Sarah M.
                      • This was my second experience working with Carl~ he successfully sold my condo last year, and this year I purchased my first Home! With the housing market getting more competitive by the day, Carl's unwavering reliability, insight into the current market trends, and brilliant scope of knowledge from a contractor's perspective, helped me narrow my search and reach my goal of securing an ideal home in less than 3 months! His wife Sheryl then stepped in to offer me a moving truck and driver which helped tremendously with the grueling task of physically moving! The Medford team are true professionals in every sense of the word, and Carl is a genuinely superb Realtor and a pleasure to work with.

                        - Wendy L.
                      • Carl and his team are how every real estate team should be. They helped my wife an I sell our investment property at the best possible price. I could not have asked for more. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in the bay area, Carl is the man for you.

                        - M.S.
                      • Just closed on a purchase with the Medford Team representing the sellers. Truly one of the best transactions of my Real Estate career. They were responsive, professional and patient. Hope to have more transactions with them in the future.

                        - Jeff P.
                      • Carl and his team worked ridiculously hard to deliver on his motto: "Help us build the next chapter of our life". It took 100+ visits, half a dozen offers, and two escrows that didn't close, to finally find our dream house in the East Bay. Carl is a trustworthy, knowledgeable, smart, and dependable agent, one that answers calls, texts, and emails within minutes, not days.Did I mention Carl's superior work ethics? It's so hard to find nowadays. Carl will represent you and fight for your interests, even if it means not closing the sale.Carl is gold for any buyer or seller who is ready for their next chapter.

                        - Fabrice T.
                      • We have used Carl Medford for 4 transactions in buying and selling. Each time, he and his team worked very professionally and they delivered promising results even with difficulty situations. One time, we couldn't pass the city's inspection. Because of his experience, he contacted the inspector and explained what's really going on. We were able to pass the inspection and moved forward in the process. We also used his big moving truck free to his clients. The truck worked great! His wife does the staging for his clients. We used her expertise which helped us selling the property faster.

                        - Big C.
                      • Carl and his team are at the top of the game. No other agent I have worked with has been so accommodating and and open about the entire home buying/selling experience. If you want to buy in the dark pick someone else, but if you want to buy knowing exactly the worth of your home and your overall costs, you better pick Carl Medford and his team. We will use Carl again in the next coming years. BONUS! You get to use his moving trucks for free if you use them for your buying/selling transaction! It was a tremendous help!!!!

                        - M C.
                      • Carl Medford worked hard to help find us a home from the moment that we began working with him. His extensive knowledge and years of experience came in handy when we went on marathon viewings almost every weekend to try and find the right home in a difficult Bay Area market. He is also very responsive if you have questions, you can call, email, or text anytime. Once once our offer was accepted, The Medford Team continued to work hard for us, even providing a moving van for the big day. I highly recommend Carl and the entire team!

                        - Idylia K.
                      • If you're looking for an Agent, I recommend Carl Medford and his Team. Carl is a very knowledgeable and patient Agent. Carl helped me buy 2 homes and sell 1. Throughout the process, I never felt rushed or pushed to buy or sell. This is very important to me. When we went out looking, Carl walked through the homes with us and pointed out problems with the homes so we are aware of what we will be potentially getting ourselves into with renovations. It helped with our decision making because we know what to expect and budget for so we could decide if we could afford it or not. We really appreciated that he was very honest with us. Most Agent wouldn't know what to look for and they wouldn't have patient to walk through the homes and point out problems. This would mean they won't get their commission. Carl will look out for your best interest and will not rush you. These are rare to find in an Agent. When I sold my home, Carl and his Team was very helpful. Everything went quick and smooth.

                        - Karen P.
                      • I just don't have the right words to describe Carl & his team. They are just fabulous. I was told that buying a home in the bay area particularly in and around Fremont, Dublin could just be dream because of various reasons like price and the numbers of offers being put. But may be it was Carl's magic that worked. We are able to track down something in Pleasanton which is a much nicer and rick looking area than Fremont and surrounding areas. Carl is a very experienced professional and knows the worth of the home just by looking and recommends the price for the offer so that we don't have any surprises during appraisal. One other good thing is he has very good contacts as far as contractors, handy man goes. I just followed his recommendations and everything turned out just fine. His lender affiliations are just too good and they get everything processed very fast. I can't disagree with any of the reviews i find in here. He is just too good in this business and no wonder he has so many clients. I am a nagging personality as I expect things to work faster which is just my normal tendency. I kept bombarding him with text messages although I know sometimes i was stretching it a little too far. He was just calm and kept me confident all through the way. His team helps with the move to your new home at a very reasonable price unlike the moving companies. Anyone looking for a real estate agent never look beyond Carl. CARL IS THE MAN!!! Thanks Carl.

                        - Prabhu S.
                      • The Medford Team is truly amazing! Carl helped me find my first Home. He worked me through the entire process and answered any questions I had and trust me for being a first time home buyer I did have a lot of questions and Carl was always there to guide me through whole process. With Carl's hard work and dedication I found my beautiful home in within one month and I'm truly happy. Anyone looking to buy a new home especially if you are a first time home buyer Carl is the man to go to! I'm really thankful to the entire team Medford for finding me my beautiful home. I would also like to give a special thanks to Carl's wife who was also very helpful to me. Team Medford, you guys are the BEST!!!

                        - Ash C.
                      • We met Carl after a few failed attempts at purchasing a home in the tri-cities area with two other realtors. There was a feeling of disattisfaction on our part but we did not know how to proceed until a friend recommended Mr. Medford.Fast forward a couple months later and we just closed on our home. Carl has been very helpful, patient, delightful, and very professional. We feel like we have a friend in him and never doubted his intentions. He treated us like he would want to be treated which in my book is the epitome of an upstanding human being. He never rushed us or made us feel like an inconvenience (something we experienced before him). He has a great sense of humor which was a pleasant addition to his great work ethic. He is well connected in the community and very knowldgeable at what he does. Never did we doubt his expertise and infact felt like we needed his hand holding because he is just sooo good!We are honored to have received his help and would use him again if the opportunity arouse. You need a realtor, Carl is your man! Ps: No one is holding a gun to my head to write this. I realize how glowing it is.... just calling a spade a spade...

                        - Jackie N.
                      • When my wife and I decided to buy a house, we went with Carl Medford as our agent and we couldn't be happier with the decision. Before we picked an agent, we interviewed several agents including Carl. Carl felt the most knowledgeable and genuine. He walked us through the process and told us very clearly what he will help us with and what he expected from us. It was an added bonus that he took classes at the local MLS training center :)Once we started looking, we setup a process that worked best for us. Though Carl set us up with MLS updates, we would scout Trulia, Redfin etc and forward houses we wanted to see to Carl. He made it a point to have them all lined up for the weekend. Sometimes we saw up to 8 houses a day.While bidding, Carl gave me the best advice I ever got: "The price of the house is not what a website or comps say it is, but its what someone else is ready to pay". He was very honest with us telling us when he thought we bid too low or too high (we actually went a little crazy with our bidding, buy bidding too high once we lost a couple of houses with low bids). He helped us find a great lender (who even took our calls on Sundays) and had a very quick turnaround with offers. In fact we saw a house on a Sunday around 6 pm, called the seller's agent and found out that the offer deadline was that midnight. When we lost hope, Carl made it work; getting the lender to send us a revised approval letter and finishing all electronic paperwork by 11:30 pm. That incident defined Carl's commitment to us.Carl was with us every step of the way. On one of the houses, we got our offer countered. Mean time we felt uneasy to pursuing that house due to some ambiguous requests by the sellers. Carl never complained but handled taking to the sellers and backing out. He has always been ready to do what we felt comfortable.Once we were in escrow, Carl helped us setup all the inspections. And on the day of closing, when we got to our new home, Carl had left us a champagne & some new grocery bags to get our life started in the new place. A classy touch. Also, he provides a moving truck for free for the move.We had a great time working with Carl and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for houses in the Fremont area (as that's where we looked).

                        - Raghu T.
                      • We have dealt with the Medford team for every single transaction we have made over the past several years. Each and every time we receive nothing but the best service! Carl and his team has been an answer to our prayers and I can say that their motto is true and fit! I recommend everyone and anyone I know looking to do any type of real estate transactions or questions. We have worked with Carl, Sheryl and Lori and with always nothing but the best outcome. Thanks Carl and Team!!

                        - Christina R.
                      • Carl is very professional, honest and easy to work with. He helped us purchase our first home and made the process easy and smooth. He is also a contractor and gave us ideas on how we can upgrade our home. Carl and his team also provide a moving truck and a driver for our move day, which makes things even easier! I'll highly recommend him to everyone!

                        - Clare B.
                      • Having Carl Medford and his team working for us to sell our home was like have our very own personal Realtor!!! He was very quick in response to any and all questions that we had. Carl is very professional, knowledgeable and great at what he does. We were confident through the whole process that our home would be sold and that Carl would get us the selling price that we wanted. We definitely recommend the Carl Medford team for anyone looking for great service and a job well done. Carl also helped us on the purchase of our new home and he and his team were on top of everything, making it a smooth transaction for both sides!!!

                        - Stephanie B.
                      • Carl and The Medford Team team were incredible throughout the entire buying process. We were in a very competitive seller's market with a limited budget, and Carl always went the extra mile to ensure our desires were represented well. After learning more about us, Carl put together an expose of my wife and I that described us and our dreams to each and every listing agent/client. He personally reached out to each selling agent, and I quote the Seller's Agent as telling my wife and I that we had been selected out of 15+ offers because of Carl's ingenuity and diligence. Carl also navigated the difficulty of the short sale, tackling issues with ease that could have otherwise prevented us from getting into our first home.

                      • This is the third time I've worked with the Medford team. Looking for a house in crazy 2014 housing market was frustrating, and my husband and I really appreciated that the Medford team was there to provide advice and information without being pushy. We worked mostly with Michelle, and she supported us as we took our time to find the home that was right for us, patiently answering all the silly questions we had as inexperienced home buyers. The Medford team coordinated with our loan officer, escrow officer, and inspection company so we didn't have to chase different people around as we entered the escrow process. This was a huge relief for us, as we were on our honeymoon at the time. We are so glad we had the Medford team on our side to navigate through the complex home buying process!

                      • Once again you did it. We really want to "THANK YOU" again for doing an "EXCELLENT" job on the handling of selling our 2nd property in the Bay Area, our 4 Plex Apartment Complex. Within one week we had a total of six offers on the building, coming in a day at a time within that week and it was sold within a month after acceptance, and for a higher amount thanit was listed for.You handled our property with such expertise, efficiency, detail, accuracy, and speed as always. Our first property you sold was our home, and you sold it within 27 days and for the exact price we wanted.The way you handle real estate when selling a property is like no other Realtor in the world. You put a lot of effort into selling a property, and that's why as far as we are concerned, the "Best Realtor in the World." Thank you again for selling another one of our properties Carl, and the Best success to you always!! You will always be recommended by us to anyone that needs a "Great Realtor" which gets the Job done and Done Right!

                      • The Medford team was very professional, attentive, and included services (photography, staging, and moving truck) that made the sale and our move quick and easy. We have sold over 8 properties over the years and this one was by far the best.

                      • Carl and his team were incredibly helpful, and went well above and beyond in helping me get into my first house. Many questions, many follow up questions to the question, he was always very responsive and insightful and knew answered everything.When doing walk throughs and inspections, his contracting experience and advise helped point out many "Walk away" properties that had a shiny veneer and passed the open house test.His team was able to accommodate a VA loan, and additional lender requirements easily and made the entire process effortless.Above and beyond as well with the help after the purchase, setting up moving trucks, movers, paint advice, interior design, landscapers, handy man, contractors, etc.Highly recommended to anyone!

                      • We worked with Carl's team in the South Bay around the April 2012 timeframe. We were trying to buy a home. He and John made my wife and I signed all kinds of documents placing allegiance to his firm using Docusign. They reviewed a couple of properties with us in the beginning, but that was pretty much it. It was difficult for us to get in touch with them. I had originally written this review much harsher because my wife and I were both extremely anxious to get into a home and the prices were starting to rise. We were frustrated and felt like we were ignored.After posting the initial review, John called and apologized that the experience wasn't at the level they usually deliver. He reminded me that he did let us know that he would be on vacation for a week and that he had reviewed a couple of properties with us initially. The initial review was harsher than it should have been.We did find another realtor and moved into a single-family home.What I took away from the experience is that it is good to find a realtor located close to the area you are looking to buy into.

                      • I have been talking with Carl about residential and commercial real estate for several years now, but I didn't have a chance to work with him until this Summer when I needed a quiet home for myself. Carl and his team provided me with excellent advice and services that I gladly recommend to others.

                      • Lori Parks of the Carl Medford Team helped us purchase our house. She had the vision and patience to deal with my husband and I on this transaction, which was a complicated transaction. Through it all she was calm and professional, and we believe that had it not been for her, our offer wouldn't even have been accepted above the other 4 offers. She was always helpful and just there for us during the emotional ride that this purchase was. We followed her advice when she recommended a home warranty, which we are eternally grateful for as our furnace went out during the first cold spell. She went above and beyond all expectations and I cannot recommend her high enough. She's smart, knowledgeable, and competent, exactly what a Realtor should be, and so much more. I now call her friend. Thanks, LORI!!!

                      • We worked with Lori Parks out of this office and she was amazing. She is a no-nonsense, clear speaking, honest and professional agent. She was very communicative, able to take our thoughts and feelings and translate them into solid and effective deal-making. We went from meeting Lori on Friday, to putting in an offer on Sunday and closing about 30 days later. Lori is just one member of our team we had working on the deal (agent, lender, title, hazard ins, assistants, etc), but she brought our mortgage broker to the table and this person was insanely amazing. Good people attract good teammates and the experience with Lori exemplified that. I would definitely call her again and work with the Medford team in the future. We were very happy with our experience.

                      • Since this was my first time selling a house, I wasn't sure how the process worked and I know that finding the right realtor was very important. I also wanted to do this quickly so I went online and did a generic search. When I looked at the huge list of realtors available, I became a little panicked and frustrated. Then I noticed the Medford Team's site and Carl Medford's picture and thought to myself, "Wow, he had a very honest open look to him". I emailed him and he responded right away. We met the next day and I knew immediately that I wanted him to be my realtor. He was warm and friendly, had an impeccable background and most importantly, was very knowledgeable in his field. Carl was very direct and upfront about the market and answered all my questions without hesitation. During this home selling journey, working with Carl and his team, Sheryl and Ashley, made selling my house rather stress free. They were always professional, constantly gave me updates and were always available to answer my questions at any time of the day or night. I think the best thing about this entire process (other than selling my house in this market) was working with the Medford team, who made the transaction incredibly easy and stress free. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top notch team of professionals to sell/buy a home.

                      • Just wanted to say what a Great experience I had with Michael Strle of the Medford team. We listed our house in concord and after 10 days on the Market we had multiply offers over asking. I really appreciated that they staged our house for no additional cost. Michael was very professional and knowledgeable. I would defiantly use him again

                      • The Medford Team performed stellar work for us to sell our home. The team did an amazing job in transforming a older house into a gorgeous property for a rapid sale even in the lousy 2011 market. They were honest throughout the entire process and supported their suggestions with real market data. I know the team spent many hours on this project and they were sensitive to the various needs of each of our family members. They were clear in their communications but never pushy nor insensitive. Anyone who needs to sell a house should absolutely meet with Carl Medford before selecting an agent!

                      • If you want a one stop realtor team The Medford Team is it! Our home needed a lot of work done and they had construction workers, handy men, and gardener that all came in and did the work in record time. I was feeling very overwhelmed with all that needed done and Sheryl (project manager, stager and all around great lady) organized everything and had us ready to sale in two months. Incredible!!! We have already recommended them to several friends. We received top dollar for our home and felt supported by the team all the way through.

                      • So here we are, going into the 5 months of living in the new place and Carl and team are still helping us. We had an issue with HOA claiming that no payments were made though we did at closing date. It only took a few days for Carl and team to take care of it. Thanks again Carl and team!

                      • The Medford Team is a well-oiled engine. They are well-organized and has kept our home selling process run smoothly and efficiently. My husband and I found Carl Medford thru UpNest. We hired Carl for his calm and confident expertise, experience and competitive nature. They walk you through the process, next steps and regularly provide updates. They anticipate and advise you of required documents. The quality of their staging, photography, 3D tours and printed literature are excellent. Their agents handle the Open Houses with the utmost professionalism. Lauren and Katherine, their admin and listing coordinator, are always on top of their game. Carl's expertise and foresight on recommending a listing price for our home gave us the quality offers we were looking for. Working with the Medford Team has been a very stress-free experience. Thank you so much!

                      • The Medford Team was just fantastic! We hired them to sell our residential home in Hayward and could not have been more pleased with every aspect of the sale. We received many offers, most over the asking price, and eventually we sold far above our asking price to a family that will cherish our home as we did. John Juarez, our Medford Team agent, provided trustworthy and professional direction, was wonderfully quick to respond to our questions, and his experience in the field really helped expedite every aspect of the sale. Our stager, Sheryl Medford, was remarkable. Without question, her guidance and direction for updating our tract home maximized our profits. She found and coordinated painters, flooring replacement people, handymen, and the like, and then proceeded to provide professional interior design and final staging that transformed the house into a residence that was light, welcoming and grabbed sellers attention. In short, we found the Medford Team trustworthy, professional and efficient, and would not hesitate to recommend them.

                      • I cannot recommend The Medford team enough. When the first buyer backed out of our transaction, the entire team went into action, bringing us another buyer in just one weekend! They are hands-down the best team around. ONLY call them if you want your home sold quickly and competently. They provide everything from staging to consulting, expertly walking you through the entire process. One stop shopping at its best! THANK YOU!
