Carla was referred to me through a co-worker and she was professional and kind from the beginning. Carla always made me feel like her first priority, even when I knew she had many other clients. She was thorough and organized and kept detailed timelines of tasks. Carla always communicated with both myself and the builder with respect and professionalism while ensuring that items were being completed and followed up on. She was fun to be around and she made sure to be at all appointments and walk throughs. Carla demonstrated a warm, social interaction that is often lost in today's technology society and she was always a pleasure to spend time with.

She always made sure to stay extra hours when needed to finish on the same day, rather than waiting for the next; which simply shows her commitment to delivering. She was one of the most friendly faces in our work and always showed a lot of interest in learning new cultures and meeting new people. She is an excellent worker to work in a group and individually with no supervision and has every bit of experience to lead a complex team with her work ethic and leadership qualities.

Carla was fantastic. Prior to listing the condo, we worked on getting it ready or should I say Carla did. Recognizing that it was hard for me to meet contractors at the property, she arranged to meet them herself. She communicated all aspects of the presale and closing, keeping me in the loop at all times. My condo sold within 2 weeks of listing. No one likes to pay the Sellers’ commission, but I can say that Carla really earned her portion. Highly recommend.— Sandy C.
