Carole Downing

  • Carole listed and sold my home

      Very helpful. Held weekly open houses almost every weekend until our home sold.

    • Carole listed, but didn't sell, my home

        Carol held Open Houses almost every weekend to get the house sold.

      • Carole truly is our real estate agent for life. We bought our first home with her in 2009 and then recently sold that home with her help. She is caring, helpful, proactive, and truly cares about what her clients need. She is always thinking ahead and incredibly responsive- we have never felt like we weren't her top priority. We always feel like we are good hands with Carole, especially given her experience in the industry. We can't wait to buy a new house with her in the coming year.

      • Most of all Carol cared, not about the sale or her commission but about us and what was best for our family. She went above and beyond in her search for the right home for us, never trying to sell us something we couldnt afford. She devoted her time, talent and heart to helping us. We highly recommend her!

      • Three years ago, we were looking for a house in the Carlsbad-San Marcos area and we met Carole. We were immediately convinced she would be our agent. It was the very right decision. Thanks to her, her knowledge of the area, her quick understanding of our picky expectations and needs, she quickly found our dream house. We kept in touch and a few months ago, when we had to sell our house, of course we went back to her. We found the same high level of professionalism, experience, dynamism, dedication and efficiency. Carole nicely took the lead, set up videos of the house, helped us to redesign the house to make it fit the expectations of the buyers. She scheduled several open houses and organized visits. She was unbelievable. Every time she quickly got back to us for an update. Always available, highly seasonned she could answer all our questions, explain the challenges, the market and support us in the stressful situation we were facing, having to quickly leave for new jobs. Carole is indeed a remarkable agent, she has a sure taste, a true gift for Real Estate. She is fully trustworthy and devoted to her job and her clients' needs. We highly recommend Carole.

      • We are newcomers to the area we were thrilled to find an agent as knowledgeable, personable and responsive as Carole Downing! Within 5 days of beginning our home search with Carole, (yes 5 days), we had found a property we loved and made an offer which was accepted! We were so thrilled! We had briefly More

      • Carole is absolutely the best Realtor in the world. In short, my house was listed Friday, open house Sat./Sun., offer on Mon., second offer on Tues..first offer upped theirs on Weds. and I accepted on Thurs. I listened and did what Carole told me to do as far as what should stay or go in my house or rearranged. Carole is professional, knowledgeable, personable, courteous, humorous and very communicative (speedy return calls/texts). She sold my house and helped me find another in a timely manner. Carole is awesome

        - Karen Wilkman- Oceanside
      • When I expressed my thoughts about our house not selling, Carole was very positive that It would sell. During the whole process, she kept us informed of the latest developments. When the process first started, she was very knowledgeable about what we should & should not fix, which was a very big help. She was very easy to work with & helped to ease our stress level. Carole was very easy to contact, always returned calls & answered all of our questions.

        - Kathy Burgess- San Diego
      • We just closed on a home with Carole and she went above and beyond! She is extremely knowledgable, responsive and is incredible at what she does. Thanks for making our dream home come true!

        - Reza Mahasseni- Carlsbad
      • Carole Downing is a wonderful real estate agent who helped make our relocation go smoothly. From the first meeting I knew that she was very knowledgeable and cares about her clients. I felt like she advertised our property very well and that she made helpful suggestions when I wanted to know what we should do to help make our house sell. She knows that market well, and knows what makes a house sell. We were already living in another state before we sold our house and Carole was very helpful with the whole process, and also kept us well updated. I really felt that I could rely on her while I was away. Carole is always on top of things, she responds fast and gets things done fast. I definitely would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.

        - Crystal Jones- Carlsbad
      • Carole was an amazing Real Estate Agent. She was professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She showed up to our first meeting with a comparative market analysis including comps. She had the perfect balance of listening to our needs vs. explaining what the market would bear. Once we decided to engage her as our real estate agent, she handled everything from cleaning, painting, estate sales, inspections, and electricians, to name a few. If there was a problem, she called with a solution. If everything was going smooth, she called to check in to say hi. Living in a different state, she made selling my dad's home easy. Were so grateful she was recommended to us

        - Shelly Oberlin- Carlsbad
      • Carole was our agent when we bought the house 5 years ago - we were so happy with the experience that we contacted her to sell the house when we had to move again due to job transfer. We have found her to be extremely knowledgeable. She draws upon a wealth of experience to expertly handle any hiccups in the process. We appreciate her frequent updates, making sure we are kept up-to-date on all developments. Carole offered wonderful guidance at all stages of the transaction, helping us to navigate the transaction efficiently (and with our sanity intact). She epitomizes the ideal real estate agent.

        - Brenda Duffey- Escondido
      • Highly recommend to use this Agent! I have purchased and sold several houses and for majority of my transactions I have used Carole Downing to help me do those. She has great knowledge and is very efficient. Knows the market and what to do in situations that might come up. She has great ideas on change of floor plans even! I known Carole for years and will continue to hire her for my future real estate adventures!

      • We moved to San Diego from Los Angeles and were referred to Carole by an LA realtor as her reputation runs thru the entire state and Im so garateful for the connection as she is absolutely amazing. Carole goes above and beyond, she is not just trying to make a dollar and more so cares about your best interest, we learned a ton from her about the real estate process, shes honest, shes connected, and she will fight for you. Carole also is kind, she is incredibly responsive, and there is no question too big or too small. If you are house hunting or selling in SD there is NO other agent to use... Carole is the top talent of the industry. Thanks again Carole... we are beyond excited for our new home and couldnt have found it without you.

        - Kelly OConnor- Vista
      • We have worked with many realtors over the years and Carole was by far the best realtor we have worked with in any of our transactions. She was very honest, transparent and knowledgeable about the area, property and neighborhood. She listened to our needs then made the purchase process incredibly easy. She explained each step of the transaction and had helpful advice on next steps once we closed escrow. We would highly recommend her to any friend who is looking to buy or sell a home.

        - Greg Ostrom- San Marcos
      • Carole is by far the best real estate agent Ive ever worked with. Shes extremely knowledgeable understands the California market extremely well and managed to get us $45000 over asking price just a week after putting our home on the market

        - Karina Barton- Oceanside
      • Carole is one of the best real estate agents we have worked with. My fiancee' and I have recently secured a home in the area while shopping from afar (we were based in Seattle and bought in SD). Carole is pleasant and fun to work with, highly knowledgeable about the business, highly knowledgeable about rules, price points, area trends, market values, and value propositions of each property we saw. She was also very easy to work with because she let us do the shopping and provided the right balance of guidance and "salesmanship" at each home visit-- meaning she would show us any property we wanted, but offered her own opinion on the pro's and con's of each property and what we should watch out for. She did this in a very respectful and patient manner that made us feel like she was on our team. She works tirelessly and is an excellent communicator, which is the most impressive part of what she brings to work every day. We ended up walking away from one home that had an obvious fatal flaw that arose from inspection, then ultimately bought new construction. Carole was very clear on both processes and offered good comments on what it would take to secure the home(s) we wanted within our time-frames. When working with the builder, Carole asked good questions to the builder to ensure both she (and we) knew the process and what it would take to reach an agreement. Overall, top marks for Carole and if/when we have to go after another property in the area, she is definitely going to get a call from us

      • Carole Downing is a smart, savvy, and extremely professional agent and negotiator. She has represented me on both the buy and sell side and she unfailingly leaves no stone unturned and advocates for her client throughout the entire process. Carole has her pulse on the local market, is insightful and honest, and well-connected and respected in the community and the real estate industry. I unequivocally recommend Carole to anyone looking for a true real estate professional

        - Carol Larkin- Oceanside
      • Carole is a fantastic agent: professional, responsive, personable, and she has a great sense of humor. Carole helped me prepare my house for sale, suggesting improvements most likely to enhance the appeal as well as recommendations for last-minute fixes or repairs when we were in escrow. She thoroughly researched comps and pending sales in the neighborhood and she was always available for questions or advice. She is a strong advocate for her clients and she ensured I got the absolute best price. I feel very comfortable working with Carole because she is so knowledgeable and I'm excited to work with her again as I look to buy a new house

        - Liz Neely- UTC
      • I am so happy that I met Carole when I just started to look for my future home. From the minute I met her, I knew that she is the right person to help me in my search and further process. And I was right! She is professional, kind, smart, and caring. I knew that I am in a good hands and although the process of buying the house is very different from the state I was moving from, I knew that Carol will take care of everything I need. She is just amazing!!

        - Neely Venkova- UTC
      • I have worked on three different properties with Carole and her work ethic, knowledge and expertise have been beyond helpful. She thinks of what I forget to think about, knows the details and negotiates professionally and capably. She is also great at under-promising and over-delivering, which is very helpful in real estate transactions
