"Are you looking for one of the absolute best real estate agents you'll work with? Look no further than Carter. He is wise beyond his years and hustles for you 110% all the time (even when life gets in your way and you're not able to make that one open house, he'll make sure to send pics, vids, and comments to make sure you don't miss out). Hate pushy sales agents? Hate agents that are only committed to you for the short run? Hate agents that are not dependable and think of you merely as a transaction? Me too! That's why I chose Carter; he is the complete opposite. He will give you his candid feedback and strategies for putting you in the best position to win an offer; listen to your needs; and never push you into something that you are not comfortable with. He will stand up for you during negotiations and will always have your best interest, never treating you merely as a transaction. I plan on continuing to work with Carter for years to come. If you are a discerning client and have incredibly high standards, Carter will exceed your expectations!" - Eric

"Carter is a consummate professional. He is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and overall pleasant to deal with. I could tell that he adapted quickly to accommodate how fast our buying timeline was; every step of the way he kept things moving quickly with fast turnaround. I couldn't imagine there's a better agent in the bay than Carter. Cheers to the great work!" - Adam

"Carter is one of the best agents out there. He has worked with us for over a year, showing us homes and probing a daily feed of new listings that meet our requirements along with an explanation of why certain ones are better. He is easy to work with and took time to understand our changing needs and has access to a large pool of off-market properties." - Sabrina

"Carter is very thorough and patient and knows the neighborhoods across SF very well. He was equally responsive and timely throughout the process. We looked at a number of different areas across the city, and Carter was always able to provide thorough reviews of pricing trends and insight into competition during the bidding process." - John

"Carter has shown me dozens of homes in the past 5 months. As a first-time buyer, I had no idea what to expect…Carter walked me through the process and earned my trust immediately. Since the first contact, he's leveraged technology to make my home search as efficient and effective as possible. After our showings, Carter provided his honest feedback on each home and how they compared with other opportunities. He’s an absolute expert on the San Francisco market and has great insight into what the future holds. Almost every week Carter shares off-market homes with me that unlock properties most buyers don’t know are available. Had it not been for Carter, I would’ve given up on my home search long ago...I now consider him a good friend and my go-to resource for all things real estate." - Fen

Client Testimonials

"A consummate professional, an astute listener, and warm person, Carter’s efforts were nothing short of herculean in helping me to find my perfect home. Organized out of the gate, he arranged multiple appointments in a single morning or afternoon to streamline my search. Once we identified the property I wanted, he helped me negotiate a deal that would secure the property without overpaying. During the loan application process, Carter was there for each and every hiccup (and there were many) proposing alternate solutions when I felt we hit road blocks. Wise beyond his years, he counseled me when I got cold feet based on irrational beliefs about the San Francisco market. After receiving a lovely housewarming gift from Carter, I arrived in the home to find that the refrigerator that didn’t work. That’s when I realized that he used his own money to buy each of his clients a warranty on appliances and other issues that could go wrong. He was on the phone day and night to ensure that the services were performed and that I didn’t need to pay and extra couple thousand dollars. Perhaps its his Hawaiian roots or entrepreneurial upbringing but he calmly tackled every issue on my behalf. He goes to bat for his clients and striking out is not an option. I have purchased 3 properties in the past and never experienced this level of excellence in a real estate agent before. Carter deserves a 6-star rating and I have no doubt that he will one day become the most premier agent in the San Francisco Bay Area. - Liz W..
