"Carina responds quite promptly to phone calls, texts, and emails. Her promptness was very valuable to me as I was moving to California, from NYC. She has quite good insights on various neighborhoods in SF, and was very straight forward throughout our interaction. She took the time to walk me through quite number of homes over the few days I was in town. In particular, she did a great job helping me search for a condo, negotiating the best offer, and handling all closing steps. She also understands the real estate market quite well and has definitely given me valuable advice on which properties could potentially be good investments. " - Mark

"Five stars seems to be too few for Carina. Even though I ended up not buying a place, working with Carina was absolutely fantastic. If you are looking for an agent to buy (or sell), Carina is the agent you want on your side. First, Carina is knowledgeable about the SF market. SF has a lot of strange rules and idiosyncrasies and was able to explain the nuances and the market in easy to understand terms. She also knows the neighborhoods well and is able to help you find places that match your wishlist but might be in a different neighborhood than you are looking. Second, Carina is a super professional. She is very responsive, always called ahead to realtors to let them know I was going to stop by to see a place, which was nice and always read the disclosures promptly and surfaced issues that she noted (and was available to discuss them). More importantly, however, Carina never put her interests above mine (even when her commission was dependent on the purchase price). Carina always had my best interests in mind and listened (and took to heart) my reactions to various places. Finally, Carina is an attorney and can take care of any additional legal terms or research anything that might relevant to housing laws and restrictions. I can't recommend Carina more if you are looking to buy a home in SF. If I decide to start my search again, she will be the first call I make. " - K R.

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Carina Isentaeva when looking for my home. From day 1, Carina was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Carina was there, quickly handling any issues that arose. If the time ever comes again when I look for a new home, there is no question of who my Realtor will be! " - Alan

"Carina is passionate about what she does! She was very responsive to our numerous questions about every step in the process, gave her honest opinion about the places we were considering, and even returned from her trip a day earlier to write an offer for a place we liked! Thank you Carina for helping us get our first home! " - Marina

"I would highly recommend Carina.When I began the process to buy a house, I did not know where to even begin. I was referred to Carina from friends I thought I should give her a chance. I met with her at her office and she explained the whole process to us. She took it slow and made sure we understood what we were getting into. Carina is an Attorney too and made sure that I understood all details of contractual obligations when submitting an offer and getting into a contract. She was very patient when I couldn't decide if I wanted to continue with the process. When I decided to move forward with purchasing a home, she was right there and ready to go. She is very knowledgeable about the market and answered my numerous questions. Carina was quick to respond when I had question or wanted to check a place out. She would help me to get information on any property and even accompany me to see it when she was available. Carina always made sure I know what I would be buying and pointed out the good and bad things about the property. She knew what I was looking for and made sure I was on track when we were indecisive on our decisions. Carina was right there working closely with me throughout the whole process from beginning to end. She also has connections to many specialists that provide reasonable prices. Give her a chance and you won't regret it. I am extremely satisfied with our purchase and I have Carina to thank for that. We became good friends after that. Don't look anywhere else, contact her.
