  • Carol listed and sold my home

      We enjoyed working with Carol and Greg during our home selling process and would recommend them to other clients without hesitation. From day one, they were responsible, knowledgeable, courteous and well organized. They came prepared for our first meeting (during our agent selection) with comparable listings, local market information and helpful home selling tips in a well organized and attractive format. From that point on they helped us stage and source all of the assistance we needed to prepare our home, and continued to communicate with us on a daily basis to keep us abreast of changing conditions and potential showings. The end result was dozens of showings starting on day one of our listing, with our home in contract at asking price within 7 days And closed within a month. It’s important to note that we listed our home at the beginning of the pandemic. This proved to be a tricky time all around from staging, photographing and showing the home, but Carol and Greg stayed on top of the continuously changing regulatory environment and kept our home on the leading edge of spring listings. Most importantly, they ensured that all PPE rules were followed during our showings which helped keep our family safe. Thank you both for your hard work and for helping us stay ahead of the busy spring listing season during these trying times!

    • We were in search of a home in the East Bay Area due to new work conditions. We were assigned to Carol Sawdey, a local realtor and resident of the area to help us find a new home and she understood the neighborhood we were in search of. She frequently updated us of open houses in real time, provided us with informative fliers, offered pick up and transportation to ease our search, and was always friendly and a pleasure to talk to. Upon our first meeting , she really impressed us with her strategic ideas on how and when to put an offer in for a home we wanted. Our situation was also unique because Carol had to interface with our relocation company which had their own set of processes and paperwork items. Carol worked with them directly and it became very apparent that Carol really understood the nuances of marketing and selling in San Ramon and the buying/selling points of living in our new community; while other brokers were were being outrageous with their counters or dismissive with their communication. Carol put out effort to market our family and managed to keep and provide all the details in order at the height of buying season earlier this year, 2019. She provides high-quality service and and is always professional. After we were turned away from some initials offers for turn-key homes, move-in ready homes (we were being outbid or they were getting sold $50+ over asking) we found a fixer with a priceless view. Being that Carol is a local and lives in the area, she was able to quickly provide us a list of contractors, handy men, house service, etc and from that list we were able to get multiple quotes and trust that our home would be remodeled the right way at a fair price. Thanks to Carols suggestions, we have been able to entrust these people with our home while still flying back and forth from Orange County. Overall Carol Sawdey did a great job and we doubt we could have secured the same closing price with credits without her hard work. We highly recommend Carol as your realtor and give her an easy 5star rating!

    • Where do I even start with Carol and her real estate team?! There are so many amazing things about Carol but what made the difference for me was her patience, honesty, and willingness to go the extra mile. For a first time home buyer, I had 39 questions for EVERYTHING. She was quick to return my texts, phone calls, and emails, patiently walking me through everything. Carol never hesitated to tell me when we needed to walk away from a situation during our 9+ months of home searching together and completely bent over backwards for me when the home I chose needed lots of attention under a tight timeline. She and her team quite literally made my dreams of home ownership come true and I could not be more grateful. Thank you Carol!

    • Carol Sawdey was absolutely amazing to work with! She is very easy to work with, accommodating and extremely responsive to questions & inquiries. Carol always followed up with either text messages, emails or phone calls. I really appreciated her communication style. Carol's marketing plan was just right for my home and area -- it was spot on. She made the entire transaction easy and offered support when I needed it due to my work/travel schedule. I would absolutely recommend Carol to any of my work colleagues or family in that area should they need a realtor. If I return to the Bay Area and need to find a home, Carol will be my first call.
