What’s there to say about our experience with Carissa? Well, for starters, Carissa constantly went above and beyond for my wife and me when we first contacted her about buying our first home. She was always willing to work around our schedule and kept in constant contact with us two as the search began. She really knows how to find the perfect home, that’s for sure. After visiting multiple houses, we had finally found the “one.” When the process began in purchasing the home, it felt almost too easy. Again, Carissa was on top of her game. There was constant communication between us all, and the entire process, closing included, went as smoothly as ca...— Jason R.
Carissa is a God-sent angel. When relocating from out of state, she was warm, knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to, always addressing our concerns and going the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. Once we were ready to move into a new home, once again she provided all the support we needed to sell our current home and buy a new one. She has an expert eye for decor, keen on details that matter in the market. She also tackled our concerns as if they were her own, clarifying any concerns or addressing issues right away. She is professional, courteous, and thoughtful, which can make all the difference during a stressful period where one sells and...— Buyer & Seller

Amazing experience for finding the perfect home for the right price. I have been in real estate for 30 years so I know what good service, responsiveness, and negotiation skills mean and if I could bring Carissa to every home I have ever purchased, I would. All I can say is that I was completely satisfied with every aspect of the transaction! She also listed the same house I purchased and got me top dollar within 3 weeks of listing the property.

After months with another agency, I moved my rental listing to Carissa at Coldwell Banker. In the dead of winter, in the middle of a blizzard, she took pictures and uploaded the new listing to MLS over the weekend. A few days later, we received a full-price offer from a qualified renter. Carissa wasted no time in getting my unit listed and advertised. Carissa saved me thousands of dollars. I cannot thank her enough.— J. L.
Carissa helped to sell and buy our new homes for over 5 years.
