"Cari's keen eye for design and staging helped set us to prepare our home for success and we received multiple offers the first weekend on the market! Cari's sharp negotiation skills and extensive real estate expertise carefully guided us smoothly through a complicated multiple offer situation to maximize our sales price exceeding our expectations! Cari's professionalism and attention to detail definitely stand out from the rest and we recommend her to anyone thinking of selling their home!"
"As first time home buyers, we didn't really know where to start, what to look for, and what questions to ask along the process from search to closing. On top of that, we had just moved to a new city, and we were learning about the different neighborhoods during COVID. Cari is not only extremely knowledgeable about Austin and home buying, she is positive and great to work with - home buying can be stressful, but Cari always came with a smile and clear next steps for what can feel like a matrix of a process. When it came to closing, she and her team supported us through every stage, and we couldn't be happier in our first new home!"
